    Pretty big week for MSFS.

    PMDG 737 and Fenix A320 both released, and they really bring the airline immersion up to XP11 levels, but with the much better visuals.

    They cost a small fortune though, right? At least I thought I saw the 737 was more than the base game itself.

    In other news, I've been having trouble (not for the reason pictured) with getting the nose wheel steering to work. I have absolutely no idea how to set the axis.

    When the game first came out it was mapped to the same axis as rudder, but then it changed when the Xbox version came out and they added controller pre-sets to it. Apparently something broke with sim update 7, is what I read on the forums.

    I'd love to map it to rudder again. I mostly fly with an Xbox controller (rudder is triggers on that) but also sometimes use a flight stick, but can't always use that when playing with Cloud Gaming etc.

    Anyone know what to do here?

    I have never, ever gotten the nose gear steering to work. If you do figure it out, please post about it.

    I flew over COTA, NCM's track, and downtown Cincinnati today. I need to figure out how to set way points so that I'm not just pausing and checking Google Maps driving directions on my phone to figure out where my destination is.

    The easiest way I know from the map is to set a departure, then an arrival, and then add waypoints, and I think it adds them in order so the latest one is the closest to your departure.

    I'm assuming your on XBox which likely makes it difficult, but on PC at least you can copy & paste lat/long coordinates from Google Maps into the search bar on the MSFS world map and it'll drop a pin right on the right spot.

    I think they recently added nose wheel steering? Maybe it's listed under tiller?

    I know some add-ons used another axis like prop or mixture, which aren't needed on jets.

    *sigh* Yeah. I get a lot goes into these, but the market was set a long time ago I guess, and it's just stayed expensive. At least it seems like it hasn't kept up with inflation as much. There were plenty of add-ons 15 years ago in that $70 range.

    By the way, 737 is $70, A320 is $62 (50 pounds).

    And the shittiest part is when they release other variants of the 737 (-600/800/900), each one will be just as expensive, which is bullshit. If you buy one, the others should be drastically discounted.

    I really wonder if they've tried to figure out if it'd be worth it to price it lower. I can't imagine I'm anywhere near alone in thinking "I might buy this at $20, but at that price, no way."
