So here is an opportunity voice your most wanted additions / improvements to MFS2020

To start it off, I would like to see rainbows (but no unicorns lol)

Alternatively, which 3rd party addon would you like to see incorporated / embedded into a new simulator?

Less slidey-skiddy taxying

Up-to date nav database & airspace, with an easy way of updating (e.g. Navigraph etc). Just being within 5 miles of the same airport in X-Plane would be a start!

Rain effects (anyone remember those?)

Correct positioning of clouds based on METARS (ie AGL not AMSL)

Proper European ATC

Rail tracks with moving trains (like car traffic)

Unicorns

(ya know, I've never actually seen the Northern Lights. I think they're a miff . . .)

Odd, I have seen them in FSX but not P3D eventhough the Envtex shader addon has textures for them.

Try sitting on the runway at Tromsø for a while?

Combat FS capability...yes...even shooting down ai or other player aircraft. My #1 request because otherwise when I finally replace my dead computer i'll be switching to DCS world...

Associated; Robust support for multi-player even in civil operations. Air-hauler, for example, flying with actual other players would be awesome frosting!

ALL the weather/shadow/cloud/lighting/atmouspheric effects!

 

Immediate support for add-on development and integration.

 

Unicorns.

I would like to see a built-in Google Earth API, so we can display flight plans or flown flights in GE.

As Tim said, definitely some sort of Navigraph interface that can import flight plans and be the basis for an airfield database.

OK, I cede to popular request, Unicorns.

Proper multi-core and GPU support

Decent scenery performance, especially in densely populated areas (think about how crap P3D is around London, compared to X-Plane with the same Addon scenery)

Ability to crack the doors open a bit while taxying

Clouds that don't vanish completely as soon as you fly out of them

Better vectoring (no more repeated 30-degree left/right zig-zagging)

Oh, ad did I mention, unicorns?

Here's something I'd like to see added not only to the new Microsoft simulator but to P3D and X-Plane 11, as well: Realistic AI helicopter traffic such as was provided by Heli Traffic 2009, but taken even further by including helicopters in ATC and by enabling visual flight following such as can be done with fixed-wing AI aircraft.

Good point Dan, I tend to overlook the hover-bovvers, I enjoyed having Heli Traffic 2009 running as well. 

Did DodoSim ever upgrade their 206 to P3D?

I would like to see jet blast from airliners and fighters, and some heat haze for GA exhausts

The ability to call up the ATC and declare an emergency, so that procedures swing into action to get you down safely etc and send out the fire trucks when you do so! Something you cannot do with FSX.

All of the above except the DCS world bit (replace with X-Plane 11 military capabilities) and...….

Better FPS for an average spec PC

Backward compatibility with FSX/P3D aircraft addons

Military AI aircraft...not just civil. 

More detailed texture that is FPS friendly.

No unicorns!!!

Rain effects.

More realistic engine sounds.

The full finished product being FREE!!  (Okay...that may be stretching it a bit!!)

Given MS's announcement that they are taking back control of FSX, then I guess 2020 will be a development of this. It would certainly explain the short time between announcement and release deadline.  

It might mean that P3D becomes a blind alley. If the mass market way ahead is MS FS2020 then Lockheed may stop supporting the £50 version that amounts to a mass market version of P3D.

I wouldn't be averse to that, so long as there's a way to migrate back P3D assets.
