POSTED BY: MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR TEAM

TECH ALPHA TESTERS

Important update to those of you currently testing Tech Alpha:

  • If you are currently a tester on Tech Alpha, you will automatically be given access to the upcoming Alpha build once released.
  • In order to access the new Alpha build you will need to uninstall Tech Alpha, before installing Alpha.
  • Testers will no longer be able to acces the current technical alpha build once the Alpha build is released.

Nice screenshots. The downside of user created screens is that you can see some weird colors going on because of the huge watermark.

Still, i liked seeing the fog this time!

 

Also quite thankful i don't have to wait until midnight or 1 o'clock to see the post.

Yeah, those are some good screens. Also I'm glad they posted the update early this time, the last few times it was getting uncomfortably late for most of Europe.

Also it appears that they've started sending some more invites a small while ago, so stay tuned to your inboxes.

To your credit, it was Microsoft's error.

St Barts? 

I think you're right. The trees are way too tall, but the shape is correct.
