I get the impression that this EXPO was a bit of a fizzer, at least with respect to new product announcements.
Even Godzone didn't bother attending
In particular I was hoping that A2A would announce the Piper Aerostar. PMDG's new product announcement seemed to go down like a lead balloon.
That was my impression, too. I was expecting something revolutionary from platin above all sponsor ORBX like completion of their HD buildings, a preliminary release date for UK TrueEarth, perhaps their new AU or - wow something even more recolutiuonary like them supporting installation via add-on.xml which might lay the path for getting rid of those ugly autogen issues when using with France VFR and Godzone requiring ACM.
Aerosoft another major player didn't bring much to the plate as well ... except another deferral of their Busses which was to be expected anyway.
FlyTampa didn't release their Las Vegas which anyone was hoping for. As I am German, I was in hope for 29Palms Nuremburg which has been in the works for felt 5 (10?) years now.
The only really positive news in my eyes were NZWN by FlightBeam and GSX2 by FSDreamteam.
No really revolutionary project either (that PMDG thingy doesn't count for me either).
In no way does it compare to FlightSimCon 2016 where ORBX announced two hands full of new developments (and realized at least one hand full of them later).
Kind regards, Michael
