@EasternT3 I was at work yesterday and didn't have the time to reply to your posting. Your post contained a lot of 'misconceptions'.
To my memory, I didn't comment on any roadmap. But the willingness to spend is indeed very relevant to a roadmap.
Bigger customer bases allow for smaller prices, that's correct, but finding a 'good' price is not at all a trivial thing to do. Customers are generally charged what they are willing to pay. If they are willing to pay more, they are charged more. This is another simple side of economics.
Another assumption based on thin air. Apart from this, MSFS was released in august of 2020, so this is 18 months and not two years, if I'm not mistaken.
That numbers will grow is obviously not a fact, it's an expectation, which is a tiny difference. I did not bring up the MSFS subject. Actually I never bring this subject up, because I have absolutely no interest in bringing it up. I have an interest in OpenLC Asia, as should anyone who enters a thread that has "OpenLC Asia" in its title. The subject was brought up by another user; I suggest you have a look.
At the moment, I couldn't care less about MSFS. As I said countless times, MSFS has obviously much better visuals, which is no wonder since it is a much newer platform. Nobody doubts that, nobody said anything different. MSFS is not going to be 'neglected' because of Orbx developing a product for P3D. But MSFS is not a sim that I am going to use in the near future. Why? That's my cup of tea and I don't owe you an explanation.
Honestly, I don't understand why you are active in a thread called "OpenLC Asia Phase 1", as you are obviously not interested in OpenLC Asia. You have nothing to lose out of this product. Your beloved MSFS is not getting smaller, slower, or less fantastic due to it, there's absolutely nothing taken away from you. I suggest you just let others enjoy what they like. We are living in a free society, after all, and this means that we are not stepping in others' affairs and trying to ruin their hobbies.
Posts like yours aim at some kind of delegitimization of OpenLC Asia, and we are witnessing them since Orbx committed to its development. They are destructive.
