Wouldn’t a group at Microsoft be responsible for the day-to-day, online aspects of MSFS? From what we’ve seen so far, it seems like no one (or group) is responsible for this important function.
For all features and functionality that rely on remote connections, servers, monitoring server activity, operational status:
-Live air traffic
-Streaming scenery data (Bing?)
-Streaming Photogrammetry data
-The ones I’ve missed
Not on the Development side (Asobo), but on the Production side (Microsoft). For all the functions listed above that rely on online services or data being provided by servers. This makes up such an important part of the Sim. It seems like there’s no one responsible for this aspect.
Wouldn’t a group be responsible for tracking status of the online services? Notifying the appropriate party to initiate a repair, communicating to the community, following up and staying on top of problems?
Internally, do you think there’s a dashboard or some software that shows the status of the various MSFS servers and online data sources in one place? That they may get an alert that a particular server is down or service is degraded?
It seems that Microsoft should know that a server or a online data source has failed without us having to tell them.
Makes me wonder with all of the Associates they have involved with MSFS on a daily basis, wouldn’t someone notice a server outage? Or notice a degradation of performance? For instance no Live Air Traffic. And if they do notice it, can they report it and get it fixed?
Im just curious about this. What do yooze guys and gals think?
