• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Hi Tim,

I read the news, but what does this mean? What is the difference with the people who bought ESP before, don't they have the same?

Unless I've misunderstood, the main difference is that prospective clients for F1 developed projects won't have to license their own, local "seats" (i.e., ESP base platform), but rather F1 is licensed to include the ESP runtimes with their projects.

Since ESP is (or soon will be) unavailable to such clients, this is a way of ensuring that F1 will continue to be able to offer their unique, professional "Serious Simulations" to commercial clients.

I can only guess that other companies who've provided commercial "Serious Simulations" such as RedBird (cockpit trainers) will likewise have to license the ESP runtimes as well if they're to continue as a viable business.

In any case, it has absolutely nothing to do with the entertainment simulations, or the general flightsim community...

Thanks Bill, that sounds logical.
