FS2020 will be the biggest leap forward since simming started.

I'm just wondering how good the new MFS is going to be on an average PC. Building a serious PC for solid simming takes more moola than this guy has.

While different hardware will viable for different levels of graphical fidelity and performance, all players will need a minimum of 150 GB free space on their SSD or hard drive.

You can take a look at the different requirements in the chart below. To hit the ideal spec, you'll need an RTX 2080 or Radeon VII graphics card in addition to an SSD. Due to the online nature of the game, a stable internet connection is also required.

How Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 will sell user-created mods and content
https://www.windowscentral.com/how-micr ... nd-content

Quote:
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 will feature an aptly-named "Flight Marketplace," according to @h0x0d on Twitter, a reliable source of past Microsoft leaks. The destination will feature free and paid community content, with purchases made using "Flight Coins," over a real-world currency. That's a near-identical implementation to Minecraft and its "Minecraft Marketplace" hosting community creations obtained with "Minecraft Coins." The practice creates a disconnect between the items and real-world currencies while ensuring a single global price tag.

So the new MS Flight Sim has launched!

A new freeware add-on site has popped up. Not the greatest web design, but here it is: https://www.msfsaddons.org/
