Hi guys, I did say we are planning a shorter promotional period with these titles. So please don't be disheartened by the lack of any updates. We are extremely busy behind the scenes. I've just f

I don’t know why I come here everyday to look. I’m sure the word will spread pretty quickly once it releases.

Indeed. Plus, they stayed on course and delivered the 319 and 321, as they  planned back then....

Maybe they are simply waiting for all EU citizens to have their first jab? No use travelling virtually to the continent without a first jab or an excuse at least:unsure:

 

Joking aside, must be pretty tough with all the dev team spanning the globe!

Lol!

However, I'm surprised that there has been no mention of what @Andrew Wilson said here yesterday: '... more financially viable titles that are scheduled to follow the SL’s.'

Probably Concorde?  But what next? We need more details so that the next hype thread can be started!

Concorde and the touted A3XX project, I'd guess. Financially viable would generally mean a "base pack" like the original A320-X so yea :D pre-hype hype.

Also neo perhaps as it is also financially viable one would assume.

I remember writing “all I know is that the SL will be out sometime this year” back in March 2020. 

Oh boy was I wrong :D

Yeah... I laughed at some people here who thought it will be out before summer 2020 after that official statement in April. And I thought to myself "this will take until the end of summer 2020, you fools!" :D ... Then Lefteris wrote that the devs are having a well deserved summer vacation (fair enough) and I thought "ah, okay, so this sounds like it's gonna be autumn".... :D haha, and with no release in autumn, I thought this will never ever take until Christmas, that just can't be.... :D ....  

Yes, oh boy was I wrong too...

Now I fear that my thought "okay, 'early 2021' sound like February or March" will be wrong too...

Late... late July. No, wait. Make it October. Before Xmas at the latest. Maybe. :D

Ok muchachos, just remember what I said... I CAN'T be wrong! :D

It is interesting how we all post here longing to get our hands on the SL expansion. some more patiently than others. Thankfully FSL have a good record of proving that the wait, however long it is, is generally worth it.

Yes, but a bit of a tease!

Well, obviously we´ve had one quite some time ago. The A3XX can carry more fuel than the A320 series. I suggest this would end up being an A330, A340, A350 or A380. Can´t imagine any of them would be less financally viable than the A300/A310.

There‘s no worse moment than having to fly the WTF A320 instead of an A32A irl...

And no further information

Norman said they discovered issues that needed to be fixed, and that these fixes then needed to be tested. What else would you like them to say? That they don't know when the update will be released because it depends on the fixes being successful? 

They aren't holding updates back to spite anyone, so the best thing you can do is to just wait.

Yes this was mentioned about the update.. but nothing about SL. Only there will be a promovideo

Ah right. 

I assume they are waiting to release the promo video for when they're nearing the release of the SL addon, which is dependent on the update being released too. 

The release of one should hopefully see a domino effect for the rest. Fingers crossed!

Yes we all "assume" this is what I mean ;)

Nevertheless waiting is our mission .. :huh::D

I'm likely not even going to install the WTF update that's coming. Will wait for the SL. Another maintenance update does not interest me. I'm enjoying a certain 777 now anyways.

Think you'll need the update for the sharklets to work.

No, it does not matter.  It will be all new installers for the SL. Whether I have the upcoming WTF update will be irrelevant.  Same process as before for users that just buy it new, installers all the same.

Only support reasons tbh.

Your assumption is wrong Eric.  In much the same way as the current 319 won't work with an older 320 nor will the upcoming sharklets.  They will require the latest base A320-X

as Norman stated you will need to update, really no reason not to! Bug fixes and performance improvements are always welcome
