You know you’ve lost your player base when.....

Well just looking at the first page, he gets 2-10x more views for each flight simulator vid than he does for elite content..

And there's never much going on in elite for forward content so..

Wish him the best with his career and that community though.
 
Obsidian Ant has been broadening the range of his channel content for a goodly while now. As have other content creators who traditionally focused on Elite Dangerous. The long content drought has not been kind to them.

As for Microsoft FS 2020: yes, he's been paying a lot of attention to it lately. He's always been clear that the aspect of ED he loves most is exploration, and if you like flying round and looking at stuff then FS 2020 offers huge competition to ED.

I think FS 2020 is actually going to pull away a significant number of players from ED: I'm not even exploration focused, I mostly just like bummeling around the Bubble in a ship, and I can see wandering the earth in an aeroplane giving me the same sort of pleasure, especially if I'll soon be able do it in VR, and lose that capacity for new content in ED.

I'm this close to pulling the trigger on an FS 2020 purchase; only the need to upgrade my broadband package - the bandwidth requirements for FS 2020 are far greater than I've ever needed before - is giving me pause, but I'll probably end up doing it.

Dude, it's okay to buy another game. ED is a computer game, not your wife. You are not supposed or expected to play only one, or pretend any game is the One. FS2020 looks cool, it's fine if you buy it.

Well now I have read this, I will have to cancel my trip to Vegas. No point getting a shotgun wedding out there, if I can live in sin.... ;)

150gb download size so that should take me 20 minutes if that. It's going to be on Gamepass so i'll give Mr Gates 8 quid for that and try it out.

Not to worry though as I'll still have plenty of time to not play ED.
