After a public beta test, the Expert Server (Beta) is now becoming the main Expert Server.
We have made major updates to improve performance, load-handling, and futureproofing for all Expert Server users. Hopefully, you won’t notice any difference apart from fixes to issues such as disconnections, missing aircraft and messages not being received.
These upgrades are available now inside the app when you select the Expert Server for multiplayer or ATC.
About the Multiplayer Server upgrades
Changes to our multiplayer servers have been rolling out over the last few updates, mostly unannounced and undetected. Part of the reason for these updates is to allow for more interactivity online, while a lot is focused on performance, load-handling, and futureproofing.
We posted a full blog post about this with more information here:
Experiencing server issues?
While we don’t expect major issues from this upgrade, we will be closely watching stats from our end and applying any fixes as necessary.
If you notice any major issues with the server:
Please reply to this thread with the time and callsign of your flight
We may request a replay file. Please don’t delete them just in case
Please only report issues about the multiplayer experience. For example, disconnections and missing aircraft, messages not being received, etc.
For any other issues, please use #support.
And finally, thank you to everyone who helped test the server, either by flying in events or sending us diagnostics data to help make improvements!
