Honestly, simply forget about pretty much al default aircraft, with the exception of one or 2 props...

Scenery and weather wise it is a HUGE improvement over previous versions, and far better than anything available for XP.

Scenery detail is ASTOUDING. I went flying from my base of operations - LPMN - and it's almost 100% just like IRL, including surrounding airfields that we sometimes use for x-country arrivals when not being able to reach home.

All portuguese airports I have tried are superbly represented as default airports, better than the best commercial products I ever used for fs9/fsx/p3d or xp.

Default ATC is also significantly improved, and AI is very interesting too. AT release time it'll be VATSIM-ready.

At LOW settings it what I have tested. If move the sliders to the right it's still playable, and the graphics / scenery become even more astounding. But at LOW and some sliders fine tuned, I get 30 fps easily in my rather old desktop - i5 2500 and 16 GB DDR3 RAM. GPU is Nvidia GTX 960 4 GB, so also rather outdated.

I look fwd for the final integration with Meteoblue for the weather.

Some interesting stuff here:

I think the biggest thing here is to think back to default FSX with zero addons.  You can then see the real future for this sim!

For us, it is going to be the ultimate scenery generator.

Don't be afraid to make the bridge payware either. I have had nothing but flawless scenery generator visuals with P3D. I will happily pay for whatever you guys at simfest produce.

Anything that come from the Simfest team for PSX will always be free to the community.  We learn so much from the collective on these forums, it’s our way of giving back.

If anyone wants to donate to the Simfest charity in return that would be hugely appreciated.

Cheers

That's really quite amazing for a default aircraft in the 'standard' version, along with the Airbus A320 NEO.

I have a cockpit consisting of 6 networked PCs each with an external view. With FSX I was able to install one purchase on 3 PCs therefore I only needed to buy 2 copies. Do you know how many PCs a single copy of MFS 2020 could be installed on?

From what I have read, you can install it on multiple PCs but can only run one instance at a time. Asobo has stated that they will add support for home cockpits but it won't be there at the launch (pop out views, outside view only, etc.). No mention of simultaneous running of MSFS on multiple PCs.
