  1. If anybody has any doubt about the level of depth they are aiming for, just look at the patch notes from the A320 release.
  2. Have you been able to access the Tech Alpha forums, by the way? I got the email inviting me to sign up, and have signed up with my gamertag, but have not been able to access the forum itself. All I see is the public forum which is yet to be opened.
  3. I have sent in a support request email to the Flight Sim team, and they said it is a known issue that they are working on.
  4. Asobolutely (sorry), we are pattern-seeking mammals after all. A bad pattern is better than no pattern at all!
  5. I have a pretty high-end system (i7 9700k @ 4.8, 2080Ti, 32Gb RAM) but a pretty low-end connection (8Mbps). My guess is that the connection held me back from the first wave of invites.
  6. I may or may not be in the same boat! Any idea of how long it normally takes it to appear on insider hub?
  7. May be hindsight bias on my part in the case of 3D TV, but I don't agree with that assessment. The lesson from the internet or electricity, both of whose utility was vastly underestimated, or even denied at the time of their invention, is that you cannot tell ahead of time which inventions will turn out to be useless. I believe that you can, however, tell which inventions will be useful. It seems to me that as with the steam engine or radar, VR seems poised to be one of those technologies which we can tell from the outset will be useful.
  8. That's true, but use a 3D TV for a month, and a VR headset for a month, and see which one you think has greater potential.
  9. Does anybody know if the Asobo team have tried VR flying themselves? My feeling is that if they did, they would see how vr is clearly the future for flight sim. Of course, it’s early days yet, but even so, I would still never go back to a flat monitor.
  10. Many of them certainly are! But there have been plenty which are dead serious, and which I do not believe will be followed through with by the people saying them.
  11. I have enjoyed reading about others' excitement for the new sim about as much as I've enjoyed reveling in my own excitement. However, I have become increasingly annoyed by what I feel are disingenuous comments which run along the lines of "no buy if...". May I suggest that the lawyers among this forum's fine participants cobble together a piece of legislation which would make such statements contractual obligations, such that any person who utters them is indeed forbidden from purchasing the new sim once it is released if it does not contain the feature whose absence they complained about. This would add a dark pleasure dimension to my enjoyment of these forums, which, until now, has been largely of the light pleasure variety.
