• Microsoft Flight Simulator Development Update

    Microsoft Flight Simulator

    Say less, do more.

    August has been busy month for the team! We continue to make great progress on the Tech Alpha build, Feature Discovery Series, and many of the other exciting things we are working on for release in September and October!

    3rd Party Progress Update - We expect to release the first rev of plans and partners in October.

    • Phase 1 - Outreach and Engagement (in-progress)
    • Phase 2 - Code and Content Integration (in-progress)
    • Phase 3 - Content Release Timeline (kick-off)

    Head into the Insider area if you'd like to check out 3 new screen shots from some previous builds.

    In the meantime:

    Philosophical Question

    If a tree falls on a sloped runway but there is no one there to see it, is the runway still sloped?

    Answer:

    We hope so, because we've got curved/sloped runways in the next iteration of Microsoft Flight Simulator.

    Next update on August 29th!

    Sincerely,

    Microsoft Flight Simulator Team

      Maybe they mean the camber when they say curved?

      Sloped? How about banked? Like Indy 500 race track? Put THAT in your hat and smoke it! (HeHe).
