Sharklet Hype

Recommended Posts

Every time I see BB or Chewy streaming the FSL bus I usually pop in to see if the Sharklets are present. But as you all know they haven’t been since the original stream. I keep repeating the mantra of “Good things come to those who wait” to pass the time and keep myself focused on the long goal. 
 

Welcome to page 136. One page closer to release. :)

as soon as i saw the sharklets i knew that was boston. Ive only ever flown 807 when i had a trip starting in boston.

makes sense since boston is tucked into the north east and xcons are a bit tough in the winter going west

It seems that everyone's enthusiasm for participating in the hype has declined a lot, probably because there is no topic.The enthusiasm has been exhausted, and some new topics or news are needed to ignite everyone's enthusiasm.

well  I'm sorry I'm just a wee bit busy flying the WTF A321 from hither to yon.

That SL has been a year in the making, it'll arrive someday.

Until then, the first line of this reply will stay in effect.

I think the Sharklet promo video and streams were released a little to early. The countdown to the video hyped up what everyone though was a close release but we now see that it's gone quite again.

This kind of speculation about when it could be out and why it might not be released for a few more days/weeks/months really isn't going to make it go any quicker and isn't hugely helpful. 

The FSLabs team have said that it'll be released when it's ready. That's the key detail. When they are confident in the quality of their product, it'll be out.

Sort of like speculating that it won’t be out for days/weeks/months isn’t helpful either. I like how you put months in there. I think everyone knows it won’t be released until it’s ready.

You need to re-read what I wrote. I wasn't speculating.

I know one thing and one thing only..... release day will be awesome.

I think we will be happier than we think we will be.

Until then. Good things come to those who wait.

It also isnt helpful talking about shorter release timelines after Trailer and streams only to get silent after that.

I also want a bugfree release, but we all know such a thing doesnt exists...

The saying shorter promo period is unavailable now.We don’t know how long we will wait.The only thing we can confirm is the sharklet will come to us one day.The waiting almost killing me, instead of the waiting is almost over.

Do you think they’re holding the release back on purpose?

What's going to be awesome about the download page timing out because of heavy demand?

I can’t think out any reason to push them holding on release on purpose.Sharklet may delay for bug but not on purpose.It hard to tell us a actual time ,cuz the bug may come anytime ever the day before release.

No. I talk about communication. But I have to confess that I am kind of impatient because the new stuff looks very promising.

That’s understandable. But Andrew even said a few days ago that if they’re not saying something it’s because they’re busy working on it. 
 

I totally get the impatience. I feel the same way.

Impatience may be the most acurate word to describe what I feel these days. Let's continue waiting, hard times get by haha.

Given the current Covid climate and lockdowns still in various parts of the world, can you blame people? It’s one of the few things to look forward to and keep people distracted from the realities outside!

I don’t mind the wait. I just find it strange that they don’t allow their trusted testers to continue to stream it and answer question while we wait without the Devs being present. This is why I said earlier that the events from two weeks ago may have been released a little to early. I would love to see BB711 show more features. That’s how I learned how the GSX integration and CPDLC worked.

I remember that they were streaming the atsu update for a long period. But they couldn’t show the gsx update features. Sometimes very small things are under NDA.

Realistically, guys, don't expect a release until a few days after you see us lift the NDA. I wouldn't normally have to repeat this, but I understand some of you are becoming way too anxious for your own good - please, go outside, enjoy some fresh air and come back and post back here how lovely it was :).

I would go outside but we’ve been having major thunderstorms most of the day with a second wave to the west. Can’t turn on PC due to the lighting in the area. Storms hit us yesterday also and we lost power for four hours. Yep, going outside is not a good option the last two days, LOL

Anyway, again, may I repeat, now we have an A320 which works perfectly, doesn't have everything that a real A320 has, but is doesn't come anywhere close to the MSFS A32NX. I just tried another flight with the A32NX and it was a disaster. Not my fault! Good luck with your release soon FSL! @Lefteris Kalamaras @Norman Blackburn

I love flying the WTF version. Also he asked how our day is going and unfortunately due to lightning I can’t even power on my PC to fly the WTF. As in my previous postings I point out steaming and the demo video being a little too early. So I don’t know why your quoting me and your reply has nothing to do with what I posted. Anyway back to Sharklets.

Apr 16th update anniversary today?

Could I look forward NDA lifted next week?

I'm wondering if one of the devs can talk about the jump ahead function. I've always found reloading as a saved flight in FSL's 320 super finick. How smoothly will jump ahead work?
