MSFS Alpha Tester, please don't ask me any questions regarding the alpha.

There is some cool things on patch notes, but it’s public information? Because I don’t know where this has been updated (external, insider or alpha testers), so I better wait before pasting anything.

Yeah it's public. i doubt it's a mistake, it says there's more detailed information available elsewhere. They probably want to be transparent with the basics.

Then this:

Wind impact now on grass and trees

Night lighting Improvements

Added night lighting to buildings in photogrammetric cities where there was none before

Improvements to street lights

Sounds promising!

The notes are public at flightsimulator.com   And there are a ton of details.  It is going to take me quite a while to go through and digest it all.

Still no Airliners in the Alpha build.

Visual improvements have been made on grass

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)

Sounds like Frankfurt is officially one of the 'Detailed' airports!  So is O'Hare, but we already knew about ORD.

Oh man, the only thing I gather from this is a recollection of how freaking difficult it is to make a quality flight simulator. Just look at all the issues that they already are aware of. That, is hard work. Full respect to the developers out there, knee deep in code.

How do you know if you've been selected as an alpha tester? I heard that they're suppose to be sending out a new round of invites this week. I signed up for it when it was announced over a week ago. I didn't receive anything in my email. For those of you who have been selected, could you tell me where to check to know if you've been selected? Thanks!

They're still working but they're doing so safely. Can't argue with that.

You heard wrong.

All they said was that they would be updating us on their selection process after this week's build went out. So I expect an update tomorrow with the normal weekly update.

You'll get an e-mail saying when you get in. You won't get one for signing up.
