Microsoft Flight Sim Alpha Photo's

Recommended Posts

Could Microsoft/Asobo show the build number next to the picture. It would definitely help, when people are comparing new builds to the old build photo's. Just an idea.

Wise, they did release one pic I saw with the build level on it.

Or, you could just be happy with what you have for once. Just a suggestion 😛

What are you on about for once, I'm not one for complaining and I'm not here, a bit more info about the photo published would eliminate any confusion and ultimately help Asobo with the task at hand......to make the best flight sim possible, isn't that the whole point of the Alpha's and Beta?

Released screenshots have nothing to do with improving Alpha and Beta, no.

And what confusion? About knowing the exact place? Is such confusion going to affect sales? We are nowhere near a release, every being capable of reading a text can easily find out it is a game in active development so all released screenshots are not final either.

Like Pastaiolo said, the screenshots aren't helping ASOBO with their Alpha testings. The screenshots are probably meant to show off some of the sim for the outsiders like us.

I really don't see the point in showing the version of the Alpha to us the outsiders. It would mean nothing to us.

Domkle's idea would help more than that as we would where in the world the screenshots were taken, to have an idea how that part of the scenery will look like.

I can’t read their heart and mind but I observe that we are  not anymore at a stage where they show us glossy National Geographic-type of pics but alpha shots with some imperfections . Commendable.  And it seems to me that it is done to attract comments. If not, they will get them anyway😂. In this perspective, the OP’s suggestion makes a lot of sense to give us some depth in their work.

Of course the screenshots can help Asobo, people are noticing issues to be corrected in the screenshots on a regular bases.

And you think they have no clue about them? Especially not on selected screenshot which will be shown to the world? 😅

At the very least it gives them additional feedback, which Asobo have said all along that they want feedback from the community. 

Incidentally IMO Asobo are doing a fantastic job with their new sim.

What difference does it make, I don't see any harm in it. It might be interesting sometime in the future. :ph34r:

I have the feeling (and this is common I suppose) that the first screens and videos previews as well as the Preview Event were based on a build they put together with the maximum amount of features implemented in a temporary way to make the peviews happen... 

Sometimes for Marketing purposes we can include quick "hard coded" features in a temporary build to promote the upcoming version in a specific event or to take screenshots or record a demo video for Maketing and Sale or the Social Media post etc..... We did this at the company where I was...

I think the actual screenshots from the Alpha Users show a more accurate aspect of the ongoing development  on a specific machine with specific settings... Unless they were instructed to use the same settings... But I think we see some differences...

Yes it is possible the realistic aspect of the software we see in the Alpha screens is meant to initiate feedback and suggestions on forums.

I would like to see this in the final sim as an option.  That way when people post pictures, we can easily find it to go visit if we want.  And I think when this ships, people will be posting a lot of great looking pictures.


My brother has Coronavirus, confirmed by testing. On 3/26 he almost didn't survive the night.  He had extreme trouble breathing and was given a steroid inhaler.  He was very weak, had nausea, and other issues that aren't pleasant.  As of this update he is feeling much better, and seems he will be fine.  Stay safe out there.  (Updated 4/6)

Considering the giant watermark across the entire game, I doubt testers would much enjoy having even more text on their screen that doesn't benefit them or Asobo at all.
