Hello FSDT,

I just acquired Quiberon scenery and notice that the windsock is 180 degrees mis-oriented.


Any chance for a fix?

Hello FSDT,
Almost 3 weeks later and not even an acknowledgment on this post ? Yes... no ? "We work on it" ? "We aren't able to reproduce the problem" ?

It's a bug of the default Windsock so, it's possible it will be fixed so, when it will, it will be fixed for all windsocks in the world, that's why it won't make sense to change just this scenery, which will have to be changed again when the default windsock will be fixed.

Thanks for your reply. But it looks like a lazy attitude as other scenery developpers have just set 0 instead of the -179 degrees when adding the windsock in the scenery. It's so easy to correct in the xml or via the scenery editor. Windsock are pointed 180 degrees by default only when adding them during the design process.

It's not a "lazy" attitude, it's the correct attitude, because we sell products on the MS Marketplace and, to publish an update there takes weeks and, if "other developers" all did the same, and sent updates that would be very short lived, requiring another update as soon Asobo fixes the default windsock to be oriented following the MSFS standard for all other thousands of objects, the MS Marketplace would be stuck for months just to release and re-release those updates, making it less usable for everybody.

I acquired Quiberon product directly from FSDT. Not thru the Microsoft Market Place because of what you mentioned. And because I always prefer direct business with the developer. In this case, it's my mistake Wink

Now, I have to suffer of the windsock issue because FSDT distributs theirs products through a channel I'm not using. Why don't FSDT release an update (it's a 3 digit in an xml file) the same way I acquire directly the product ? I don't understand why one of your distribution channel should impact the direct customer experience of the other.

But for sure and at the end of the day it's "no big deal", now I more than reluctant to acquire any FSDT products because of all this thread Wink We progress... kind of.

You got it backwards. Yes, we COULD release a quick fix but the issue is the opposite: we don't want to let users buying on the MS Marketplace feel discriminated, like it happened in the past.

And of course, users on the MS Marketplace would have to "suffer" because we released a fix on a channel THEY don't use.
