Solid update! 

I feel for testers for having to deal with those watermarks though - shame it had to come to that they look annoying.

We're getting regularly updated charts and nav data included in the sim!

I'm laughing myself dead!

Microsoft statement months ago: Every single raindrop is calculated physically.

First video, upper left corner, exactly the same raindrops appear again and again! 

Well, at least it looks good. But the statement seems fictitious.

Is that a solar eclipse in the last imagine?! I used to play around in fs2000 trying to get the 1999 eclipse to happen. 😂

Great to see the charts being included as well as Navdata. Navblue might sound like a new company but you should look up the history but parts have been around for quite a while in various forms.

You kinda block them out after a bit. There's a very loud vocal minority complaining though.

Thats strange. That is not the same raindrops ive seen in other videos. Maybe they have some parts of it disabled in the alpha for some reason.

The watermarks don't bother me when I'm testing because there's so much eye candy to process 🙂. And good to hear we get access to the beta.

No way to know for sure but I would guess that there may be an extra charge in the for of a subscription for that service.

Yeah that's what I wrote above.  "Charts services post launch" 

Services meaning payment required hehe

Which makes me wonder what will happen to Navigraph

These short clips like the rain take off above make the aircraft look like they are flying on a string sort of like all the Carenado stuff. This is in Alpha but something I have noticed and will be watching in the future clips.

Or it's disabled on certain graphics settings, or it was too performance intensive that they had to get rid of it.

It’s good to know we will have updated Nav data and charts included on the sim. 
 

Having everything working together out of the box is a really great improvement.
