  1. All roads lead to Rome, or in this case all topics lead to the dm eventually.
  2. We really can't point fingers when we are on our 5th module and still don't have four engine bombers.
  3. My friend waiting for sales is nothing to be ashamed about, especially concerning FC. 😁
  4. Take it easy was just making a joke about game devs.πŸ˜‰ All in good fun.
  5. Oh come on no game dev in history ever meant that when they said by a certain year.πŸ€ͺ I played cfs3 as a kid, when you're young you don't get things like good or bad flight models, all I knew was the p 51 couldn't do anything, not even a loop, always got destroyed. Funny thing is still had more fun than I do now.πŸ˜”
  6. Woah there, I said by 2022, don't be trying to shave it down to the last millisecond.😁 No one flying the p 51 though.
  7. Everything I've said is my personal speculation, I'm not claiming anything as fact. Lol alright I'll stop now, but really this is all very casual speculation, just me stating why I think cfs is coming, I don't know why it bothered you so much, it shouldn't.πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
  8. No one could have offered evidence that MS wanted anything from the civilian flight sim market before Microsoft flight simulator 2020 was announced either, so I fail to see what your point is.
  9. Yeah that one too, it's not open source like xplane or flight sim x, Eagle Dynamics has control over 3rd party related content, yes you can develop for it but for most small developers if you're making a single plane the other options are better and easier, A little while ago I was watching a video covering some guys p 38 which was coming to xplane and maybe flight sim x and p3d I don't remember, anyways they said it wouldn't come to dcs because although they wanted to the DCS engine was difficult to work with compared to the aforementioned engines. That's just one example I know but whatever. Anyways I think we are missing the point here, microsoft fligth sim 2020 dwarfs every civilian and cfs game combined. If microsoft releases a cfs it will be bigger than all of those as well outside of msfs 2020. They don't just want those who fly flight sims, they want those plus 100x the aamount of new players. Found the video, time stamped.
  10. Well as far as software goes you can't actually develop for the current cfs, at least not like flight sim x or xplane, being open source.
  11. I'd say before microsoft flight sim 2020 that home civilian flight simulation wasn't much bigger than cfs, at least not as much as you're making it out to be. But I'm just guessing,I wasn't doing civilian until msfs 2020 released .
  12. Well they are expanding on all fronts, Bethesda is the most obvious example, but I mean they already have a million copies, that's not niche, at least not for microsoft right now.
  13. I don't know, it's not just that look at the big picture, microsoft flight simulator isn't a hand to mouth product like dcs or GB, it is a part of a much bigger project. Anyone who follows Gaming developments even a little knows microsoft is trying to become the main force in gaming, their massive buyout of Bethesda, and their expansive game pass to mention a few. Their main opponent is sony, and sony's main feature that has kept them ahead is high quality and highly demanded exclusive AAA titles. Microsoft obviously realizes they have to have their own unique AAA titles, and that is exactly what microsoft flight simulator is, and which is why btw it launched on xbox game pass. Considering the success microsoft fligth sim has been sales wise and especially review wise (not that I have any respect for reviewers, but execs do for sure) It seems that it wouldn't be too hard for them to greenlight a cfs. Remember that kind of unique, exclusive and popular product is exactly what they need right now. And yeah you're right it's pure speculation, but when you look at the big picture it at least seems possible, maybe even likely.
  14. Maybe because, uh you know, ms just released the first AAA flight sim in a generation?πŸ™„ Don't forget msfs is projected to sell a lot of hardware since it's one of the new pc benchmarks, this article says 2.6 billion worth over 3 years. And all those pcs will be running windows. https://www.vg247.com/2020/08/23/microsoft-flight-simulator-hardware-sales/#:~:text=Microsoft Flight Simulator is expected to produce %242.6 billion in hardware sales,-By Cian Maher&text=Recent analysis suggests that Microsoft,over the next three years.
  15. One of the reasons, but I wouldn't say the only one by far.
