It’s definitely a valid question, to ask what the developers intend for the software.
As of right now, I’d call it a survey or framiliarization type of simulator, which is a valid and important niche to continue developing. It’s also an entertainment product, and focusing on the entertainment value is likewise important.
But are they intending to support study level add-ons, or commercial use as a certified training device, for example? That’s more getting into the area where control loading seems like a higher priority.
When tens of thousands of users want to pay for prettier buildings, thousands are spreading memes about gaping holes in Brazil, and several hundred are demanding an exacting simulation of the Goodyear Blimp… I can understand that satisfying a handful of specialized hardware owners isn’t at the top of the list.
Sure, I’d rather have the USB rudder problem fixed. But still… who wouldn’t want to learn a blimp, land it on their home or office, bump it into historic landmarks, and try to fly it through a hurricane?
