May 7th, 2020 Development Update

“We would like to see rapids in rivers, with fly fisher-people on the banks. There should be snakes, on the banks, and salmon leaping up the rapids. We need bears… we need bears catching the salmon, and it would be ideal if we could fish. Furthermore, we’d like an accurate climate change model with Icebergs and Antarctic Ice shelves breaking off from the mainland with Polar Bears and Seals. And finally, if MSFS does not accurately model the Sun’s eventual evolution into a Red Giant, we question their long-term commitment to the sim.”

  • Avsim Users

 

Alright, so let me see… we’ve got an order of rocky water rivers with a side of curly fries and fish sticks. One order of wild salmon with a side of claws. One ice cream with gummi bears and sea salt toppings. Also one bottomless tequila sunrise. If that looks right, please pull forward to the first window.

Here is an update on the current postponed deliverables:

  • MAY 28th – EPISODE 8 (IFR) is our current target release date.
  • EARLY JUNE – Partnership Series update will be released.

 

ALPHA BUILD UPDATE 1.3.X.X IS COMING NEXT WEEK!

The team has started preparations for releasing the upcoming Alpha build. We’ve spent a few extra days incorporating a number of fixes for the Airbus A320 based on feedback from the community testers. We’ve completed integration and now just running a final pass to ensure everything is working, as expected.

  • WEEK OF MAY 11th – Alpha Build Update 1.3.X.X.
    • Release Candidate in build release preparation.
    • Build notes in final review phase. Prepped for release.

 

ALPHA INVITATIONS

The team has completed step 1 of the process outlined below. We have started working on step 2 and will be releasing a new round of invitations starting next week in tandem with the release of the updated Alpha build.

  1. Ensure that everyone that received an acceptance email has access to the Alpha.
    • Status – Complete
  1. Assess Alpha participation options for adding more people as quickly as possible.
    • Prioritize access for those that registered early for pre-release build testing.
    • Status – Prepping for release

 

DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP

We have released version 5.01 of the Development Roadmap (June/July preview).

How do the screenshots keep getting better...

On an interesting note, closed beta scheduled for mid July, perhaps an open beta in the weeks thereafter, good news for us!

The 2nd video clip by Chico Mick is phenomenal.  Puts a new meaning to a “white knuckle ride”!

Looking good as always 😉

Really nice to see that snow pic; gonna have a fun time flying into Aspen and Eagle Co.

Also, cool pic there of Gibraltar, wonder if it'll be the version of the road going across the airfield or around it?
Hope to see Madeira soon as well 😉

The first video also has a lot of examples of AI using the ATC. Going to need to freeze frame it to read any of it, but yeah

The looked genuinely sketchy. The stall warning making an appearance didn't help my gut feeling either 😄

Hmm, I can't see the second clip.

It is embedded on a video player in the official website, try viewing it from there.

Yes indeed, it looks great... This is the latest Alpha build I suppose and things are evolving nicely in the world of MSFS...

No one will ever complain about the grass now hopefully... Well, one less thing for people here to worry about 😁
