This also confirmed what people were speculating for months, they're using Meteoblue for their weather.

Was that still realm of speculation? I thought that was confirmed already.

I don't think they out right said it. There were just bits and pieces people put together to come to that conclusion before the announcement.

If anyone is interested in what the NavBlue charts look like, here are some examples.

Navblue also happens to make EFB software.  I wonder if MSFS will have this in game, charts and all?  Kind of like Avitab for XP11, but native to MSFS.

Guys!  I believe we have confirmation of actual airlines now.  The shot by OperatorLand468 shows the Airbus in British Airways colors!

Nice catch! I didn't think real airlines would be included due to copyright/legal issues. I guess it's possible that OperatorLand468 designed the livery themselves, however.

If that screenshot mysteriously vanishes from the update, we might have our answer.

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

Oh, forgot to add it above, but NavBlue also makes dispatch/performance software.  Maybe we will get an authentic in-game dispatch/performance/flight planning solution that is accessible for 3rd party developers to easily create profiles for their aircraft.  
 

This would be great!  It is obvious that the developers of TOPCAT quit developing it years ago.  Nobody has filled the void.  It is one thing that has been seriously missing from all simulators since.  Yes, I know we have simbrief, and it is great for being free, but it doesn’t support TO/LDG performance calculations.

OperatorLand's screenshot also gives us our first performance figure - 23FPS

That would be unreal. It's quite fiddly in P3D with all the extra tools I need to have open to do a decent flight. It would be such an ease of life thing if everything was built into the sim.

There was a trailer of 4K in game footage at 60fps. All be it we don't know their system, but it is possible with current hardware is what we should take away from it.

Some of those trees are enormous compared to the houses. Image the size of a human. I guess it could be plausible?

Way too big....Maybe it suits some old growth Amazonian rain forest, but the rest of the tropics? No!...Asobo please do some research, don't ruin the "tropics" with trees straight out of Jurassic Park.

They said in the Weather discovery episode that they use MeteoBlue for weather data, even showed a couple screens of what the data looks like IIRC.
