Interesting how the new scenery works, it looks like there's no real future for scenery addon makers because the default is amazing.  I bet Microsoft will sell regions as dlc, and with the scenery cached from a server I worry that there may be a subscription service.  Even if it ends up like I suggest, still may be better than having to go buy all these 3rd party addons from all over the web.  I don't think this bodes well for P3D either, I don't see any of these improvements being licensed to a market competitor. 

But hey, I'm all in, can't wait to get my hands on the alpha and test it.

A subscription model would definitely be way cheaper than purchasing or even re-purchasing individual sceneries/airports.

I really enjoy P3DV4.5 for the military stuff. I will continue to use it but I am very cautious on new purchases.

As for scenery. FS2020 looks amazing. Will there be a need for 3rd party scenery?.....Maybe that is why Orbx is releasing scenery like there's no tomorrow  :whistle

The other flightsims will continue to improve but Microsoft is a juggernaut  :Hammer

I've halted all addon buying as well.  Your right, I'll probably keep my P3D around for the military stuff.

Many developers will start to feel the drop in sales.


Also, no helos   :helicopter. I have not seen or heard of any helos for FS2020  :dunno

I heard no helos for initial release, that'll be added later.

No VR with initial release but support added later.

I'm fine with this, It'll get us in the sim sooner.

I'm actually more interested in AI traffic and AI ATC, if they ignore those....well I may have another reason to keep P3D around.

October 10th, 2019 – Development Update

Posted by: Microsoft Flight Simulator Team


DELIVERING THE DELIVERABLES WE SAID WOULD BE DELIVERED DURING THE DELIVERY OF UPDATES
 We are pleased to announce that the first episode of our Feature Discovery Series has been released! Recently presented at the Global Preview Event, Episode 1 (World) is an in-depth look at the world we’re building for the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator. Head into the Insider Area to watch Episode 1!

FEEDBACK PIPELINE
TLDR  – There is a Feedback Dashboard. The dashboard contains a summary of all feedback we collect from community discussions on a daily basis. Feedback is triaged, prioritized, and assigned a plan of action. We will provide the output of this pipeline to the community in a document tentatively called the “Feedback Snapshot” on a regular basis.
 There has been an incredible amount feedback from the press coverage of our recent Global Preview Event. This feedback, along with all feedback we’ve been collecting, is critically important to the team to ensure the voice of the community is being put into action through a collaborative and transparent process (i.e. use the Feedback Snapshot to give the community transparency into the feedback we’re prioritizing for action). Features like ATC, Seasons, VR, Rotorcraft, SDK, etc. can be found in the Feedback Snapshot along with our current plan for next steps and timelines for resolution. The Feedback Snapshot will be released at regular intervals and we will announce the date for our first preview release in our next update.

TECH ALPHA
•    10.15 – Recruitment for Tech Alpha 1 ends. If you would like to sign up, please head into the Insider Area and fill out the survey.
•   10.17 – Build release preparation begins. Insider acceptance confirmation communication begins and will run through 10.24.
•   10.24 – Release Window Opens. We will begin granting access to the Tech Alpha build to Insiders that have received acceptance confirmation.

BUILD PROGRAM UPDATE
 We are currently targeting mid/end November for our second build release (Tech Alpha 2). We expect to open recruitment for Tech Alpha 2 closer to the end of October but expect a final date in our 10.17 update.

DR Update and Episode 2 information coming next update.

Next update 10.17.

On behalf of the entire Microsoft Flight Simulator Team, we’d like to express our sincere appreciation to the community for all the valuable feedback we’ve received from the community on the first episode of the Feature Discovery Series.

We hear you, and we are going to do our best to keep building this experience with you. In the meantime, thank you.

X019!
 


At X019, we’re thrilled to reveal many of the great aircraft manufacturers we are partnering with to make Microsoft Flight Simulator the most realistic flight simulation yet. As you saw in our new trailer, we have a broad range of aircraft, including commercial airliners, business jets, and general aviation aircraft, all from the most renowned manufacturers.
The breadth of partnerships we have forged for the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator goes far beyond what was done for previous titles. We are determined to make this sim, and all of its components, as authentic as possible.

The aircraft partnerships we’re announcing today include (in alphabetical order):

•   Airbus
•   The Boeing Company
•   CubCrafters
•   Daher
•   Diamond Aircraft Industries
•   ICON Aircraft
•   Robin Aircraft
•   Textron Aviation

We’re excited to continue working with these great partners and will share more information on additional partnerships as we approach Microsoft Flight Simulator’s launch in 2020.

If you’re joining us in London this week for X019, please swing by our booth at the Copper Box Arena and get hands-on with Microsoft Flight Simulator yourself. Thank you for all the support!
