I copy this here, because the author wrote it as a question and it's very important for a lot of people:
The community wants the ability to add in game labels/name plates to the sim using Simconnect. This was a standard feature in FSX and "beyond". Please impliment the ability to ad thease features in the SDK as the current name plates seem to only be accessible by the core sim MS system.
Why add these?
1. Partnership with VATSIM.
2. No negative affect foreseeable (Multiplayer outside of XBOX services is already existent and running smooth(just like Vatsim and JoinFS). It does not compete, as VATSIM, JoinFS, IVAO, etc... are for special use cases, (Group flights, private flights, Radar/"liveATC" flights, etc...
3. The community support issues will be solved in this case and will be in the "final product", not needed to deal with later.
There is more, but to keep things short, many payers would benefit from this, short and long term. and the votes show its is wanted. I hope it is looked into deeper this time and not just skimmed across in a live stream again.
