We have been able to identify the issue that prevented us from launching our Alpha build yesterday and have a fix in place.
The not as good news
In order for us to implement the fix we needed to do some work which will require us to once again test a new build to before we can push it live.
What does this all mean
Without putting out a hard date we believe we can have this resolved sooner than later. Unfortunately, while we work on testing the build, maintenance is likely to continue until the new Alpha build goes live.
We understand that everyone is excited (us too) to jump in and help us test/explore the new Alpha build. As such we thank you again for your patience and understanding while we continue to work through this issue. The team has been hard at work to address this and we will continue to update you as we know more. We hope that after this has been resolved that wait will be worth it and everyone can jump back in and enjoy the latest Alpha build.
Thank you again,
-Microsoft Flight Simulator Team-
