All you guys who upgraded to 32GB could roll the dice again and take a stick or two out and go back to 16GB 

I feel your pain though.

So now people need to REMOVE ram to get access, this is just too funny 🙂 Good one!

The moon should not be in front of the clouds.  That one stood out right away.

They appear to be cirrus clouds.  So, the brightness of the moon on such a clear night could render them invisible depending on how thin they are.

Commercial pilot here, it doesn't look like that in real life.

It stood out immediately.  Even with high, thin cirrus clouds ... the moon would not appear as sharp as that.

Asobo/MS, my birthday is 2/20.  Access to test your beautiful sim would be a nice gift.  I happen to have 16GB ram as well.  My insider username is Brandon01110.   🙂

I've been trying to get in as a commercial pilot, a software engineer, a Flight Simulator user since the 1980s, and a laptop with a 1660TI in it an an i9.

No luck so far, not sure why exactly.  I could certainly provide some valuable feedback for the team.

Upgraded from 16gb to 32gb purely for the alpha an now may miss out again as no doubt they will focus on access for 16gb (head in hands) 

There is no app out there that demands 32GB RAM, it was a requirement at first for safety running purposes but now they will progbably search for low end potatoes as the sim gets compressed and smooth so I dont know how much you spent in that ram but it was definetly like throwing aways dollars in the air by a windy bridge.

I think this is among the best/clearest screenshots Ive seen yet to show how well they are doing the lighting.

COPENHAGEN_FalconUAV-scaled.jpg

shadows off the objects, reflections on the water and even done well on far off objects in the distance. 

not sure about the trees, look maybe the same as the central park shot. But placed well.

terrain mesh on the river sections is lower quality than i like, but i'm special in that regard.

Deliver this at high framerates to accessible hardware (xbox2020 and better) and they may just get the 10 years they need to finish it.

I know it's not major but I've seen you say this a few times. It's called Xbox Series X.

I doubt that very much, possible though.  My system is reasonably high end.  I have ONLY 16GB because of what you pointed out about not really needing more.  I surely dont for what I have used my system for.  I do plan on upgrading to a AMD 3950X 16c/32t 3080Ti and 64GB 3600mhz when the gfx card is released in anticipation to this sim and other future titles.

I agree that it doesn't look as sharp, even with a pitch black sky. This should be something easy to correct though.

I knew I had seen that username on AVSIM somewhere!

I thought I'd get in because I'm currently on a lowly 10 MBS DSL with a very high-end gaming laptop, which is a mix-and-match of specifications.

But no luck so far.

According to other users in here, X-Plane and in some cases Prepar3D can make use of 32GB RAM with some add-ons. Considering that Microsoft Flight Simulator will have a generally higher level of detail than current simulators, and that the next-generation consoles will pack more RAM and use their SSDs as cache, I don't think 32GB RAM is a bad investment at all today.

Mid march: per-release timeline update.  Well that is something to really look forward to. 

The same deliverable is in mid-April as well, so there is still quite some time until we get there. I have the feeling that this would have been Tech Alpha 3 had development not progressed more than they anticipated.
