Someone of us should knock on Microsoft's door and submit our claims and requests  :heehee: :heehee: :heehee:

As long it is still in development stage.

It looks awesome.

TOO awesome in fact.

Just doesn't add up to me. To be Xbox compatible and look that good.
Something fishy going on.

Well, it's all speculation for the most part at this point, and PMDG put out a statement saying this same this morning on their forum.   Will they go to the PC game pass at $9.99 a month vs the ability to pay outright for one license?   Will the earth be some sort of streaming platform in real time, using Microsoft Earth View as seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvsCuozjskM  (I think this is what they used for the detail of the topography and cities).   Will it be a controlled platform where developers will have to go through Microsoft to sell their products so MS gets a slice of every pie (if so, this could once again lead to it's downfall with simmers).   

The biggest thing that concerns me is that scenery, aircraft and add-on developers are not in on the product early on.  It's a complete blackout and caught them by surprise.  That tends to favor the fact they are not going to be allowed to develop add-ons without going through an MS marketplace, which will once again destroy the appetite for the product (no payware or freeware add-ons).  Hope I'm wrong, but early information and speculation is somewhat discouraging.  Well just have to wait and find out.

I have a strange feeling this will be another "Flight" and "Flight Sim World". One one is allowed into it, because the companies behind them wanted to some kind of regulate what was allowed on it and what was not allowed. And last but not least wanted to have money for it.

I agree. But that would make it like almost every other recent high end video game. No game developer wants to give up the income from DLCs.

With the data required, it has to be some sort of streaming service in game/sim.

From the MS Flight Simulator website:

Quote
1. We are making Microsoft Flight Simulator. Emphasis on the word SIMULATOR.
2. Designed for PC, optimized for multiplatform support (e.g. Xbox).
3. Yes. We are supporting 3rd Party Content Development and Community Content creation. We are aware of the concerns in the current eco-system and are working to address them.
4. Yes. We genuinely want to work closely with the community in the development of this title.
5. Accessibility is important to us. Whatever your abilities are, if you want to fly, we are going to do whatever we can to make that happen. Yoke and pedals, mouse and keyboard, controller, etc. No pilot should be left behind.

"And while all of us have our own personal associations with flight, "

Had to read that sentence twice  :D ;D

I'm still skeptical about this. Remember, FSX at first sight also looked pretty amazing - at that time.

It is written on a entirely new code? If yes how long they already worked on?
Will they establish new standards (e.g. sucessor of BGL file format)?
Or it is just a revamped code of the ESP source code (again)?
Are there still connections of the source code between Prepar3d and and the new product?
Will it be just a revamped Prepar3d for private customers?

At my whole working life with computers, Microsoft new products were always a disappointment, to a greater or lesser extent.
