ALPHA BUILD UPDATE

We are preparing the build for release and expect to have the build ready for access early next week. Stay tuned, we will send an update once it’s ready for download!

 

ALPHA INVITATIONS

There have been a number of discussions in the community regarding Alpha build access recently. We are continuing to discuss our current participation strategy and will finalize any changes/communicate to the community, once we release the updated Alpha build. Our current top 3 tasks regarding Alpha participation are as follows:

  1. Ensure that everyone that received an acceptance email has access to the Alpha.
  2. Ensure that those that registered early for pre-release build testing, have access to the Alpha.
  3. Assess Alpha participation options for adding more people as quickly as possible.

'Save the Date' announcement, late April. I guess a release date?

 

Also the picture labelled 'Sad-Hill', any idea where that is? Almost looks like there's a grave yard there, maybe that's why it's called that?

 

Edit: Oh it literally is called Sad Hill

Ah so I was right, the AI will take over a real world plane when they lose the signal. I mean it seemed obvious.

Really amazing stuff! I know it's on the feedback list, but I'm really surprised shared cockpit wasn't mentioned in this episode and isn't a higher priority. I feel like it would be a super useful thing to have this time around (ex. taking a friend flying who just wants to see the scenery while you fly, or even for training newcomers). Would be really cool to be able to get my non-flight sim friends loaded into a Cessna and take them flying. 😄
