Will Alaska get Aerocaches and missions?

Recommended Posts

I will be very dissapointed if there are no in game aeros for Alaska.

They are both fun and educational.

They must be coming. On the Aerocache page within the game you can pick Hawaii or Alaska or both.

Aerocaches are what I get up for in the morning before going to work.

Yes we definitely need some aerocaches and populated job boards in each airport.

The main thing that attracted me to Flight was perusing and flying the jobs.

As others have said a few static planes wouldn't go amiss, and of course more VCs!

I was really hoping for more SAR missions and an appropriate aircraft. They can't expect us to get the Rescued People achievement rescuing the same moron on the Napali coast can they? That was my favorite mission, as well as the photographing airfields one (not the photobook). I found these missions very immersive and even educational.

I'm hoping for that kind of missions too.

It would make sense new aircraft (de luxe) new missions.

Yes. Alaska has a lot of "water" airports, so some aircraft with ability to float & take cargo & passengers.

Aerocaches are coming very soon. Posted on the beta discussions.

 

It amazes me that Microsoft posts this information to beta testers. What about other PAYING customers? This information needs to be posted on their official website.

 

Absolute terrible business practice. I feel so out of the loop on this game. Microsoft needs to work on their communication skills big time.

It is pretty insane that the beta forums are still going, months after release, and that's the only place information is actually put out. You never find "news" posted to the official forum on Steam by them other than marketing headlines.

 

It must be nice for the people who got invited to the little club, but it sure sucks for every other paying customer.

Is it possible that they wait for the release of Alaska on the Steam Website? The Steam Users aren't be able to download Alaska yet...

On the website it says:

"Continue the Microsoft Flight experience with the Alaskan Wilderness Experience Pack! Fly new challenges and jobs, and locate all-new Aerocaches as you explore over 586,000 square miles of aviation playground...".

So according to MS there should be aerocaches and a job board at some point!

We've all read that....what we want to know is the ETA on actually getting those in the game. As it's read, one would assume (haha, big assumption right?) ​that aerocaches are already in the game; otherwise what's the point of advertising a feature for a new product....that's actually not in said product.

 

Oh well, we've just got to be patient at this point.

Sorry I just wanted to reassure people (myself included) that this will come someday.

I don't like flying around aimlessly so having stuff to do is primordial.

If it makes you feel any better, everything that's useful gets reposted here. A lot of what else goes on in the beta forum is just bug reports and discussion. Many times something posted here will get reposted on the beta forum to make sure the devs see it, and allow for questions and such.

The airports in Alaska already have jobs. Same ol', same ol', however. Chickens, Monkeys, Pigs, art supplies, etc...... The main difference is that the distances for the most part are greater. I've also already seen some clandestine missions.

 

Without a doubt we need a heavy hauler and a floatplane that can carry a load.

Sure, but the point is that we should not have to rely on the graces of other customers to receive official information about the products we purchase.

 

Those discussions should be happening openly, for all customers to participate in. This is not a private beta anymore.

Hi Folks

 

Whats this ?

"We're ENTITLED to aerocaches, and DEMAND them NOW ! "

A new FLIGHT hardcore emerges ? :huh:

 

 

 

From what I can see,

it looked like the new series had been scheduled to commence on 2nd July,

but the current series of Hawaii AotD repeats has just been extended.

 

I'm guessing the delay is due to Alaska's revised release date for STEAM,

 

 

 

Delafina has posted on STEAM that they are coming,

followed up by "within the next two weeks".

 

 

 

HTH

Are you sure you'd want to have to wade through another forum for an hour a day just to find the good stuff that's already being crossposted here?

 

Imagine if someone took all the good stuff from Avsim Flight and summarized it on another site. It would be nice to read through the good stuff and not have to endure the jackhammer of negativity that prevails here much of the time.

 

More likely the real problem is that some people believe that the beta team has the ear of the developers and no one else does. Well, the devs don't post on Avsim much, but they do on the Steam forum. If you want a more direct line to the devs, go to Steam. (Now THERE's a forum that could benefit from having the good stuff summarized elsewhere.)

No, but I should have the option.

Not at all. The real problem is that we are not in beta anymore. Once you start actually selling your product, you have to treat all your customers equally. Having any kind of exclusive venue to communicate with just a predetermined subset of them is counterproductive on many levels.

 

For the record, were I offered access to the beta forum now, post-launch, I would decline. I don't want in, I want it out. Out in the open for all customers to have access to the same information.

 

 

If you want a more direct line to the devs, go to Steam.

 

I'm sure you are aware that the Steam forum is a joke, at best.

 

Perhaps it wouldn't be if the supposedly official discusion forum became the actual official discussion forum. But I don't see that happening while the defacto but private official forum is still operating.

The answer has been answered, so I am locking this topic before we get into (yet another) of topic discussion. :wink:
