Today’s update did not alter any existing aircraft or scenery. All changes were underlying, meaning in the core sim code. So unless you haven’t been in the sim since 1.15.x, you wouldn’t see any Content Manager updates.


I had 40 updates in the content manager. One was for the Top Rudder 103 Solo, and the rest were Aviator Club liveries.

I had the same.

yes - for me the Top Rudder 103 had to be updated in the ‘content manager’ - each color had its own 41-45MB update, regarding idle RPM prop clutch. So I suppose only the folks who bought that ultralight would have a content manager update…

yes a lot of people dont realize that all these aviator or evergreen asobo stuff arent obligatory

. I personally don’t like them and deinstall them in content manager, they take up space which is precious, and they are very fs2004ish.

That’s strange because all my aircraft have higher version numbers now than since WU4.

But you didn’t have to go into Content Manager to download anything, yes?

Ah, that makes sense. It’s my first coffee and it’s still dark outside, sorry.

Nonsense, I’m a simmer of nearly 30 years, its appalling, issues to numerous to mention and that’s with NOTHING in the community folder. The latest update/patch now sees me crash to desktop whilst trying to update/install ASOBO’s own aircraft in the content manager. I can also assure you that I can read and do read, in fact I spend most of my time here “READING” and not flying which was what I paid £109 to do!!

I understand the reasoning behind having to update in the store, then update in the game during launch and then finally having to update via the content manager if needed, but I still do not like it and I can see that people can easily get confused. It is not just a case of opening our eyes.

The update system for me is clunky (1 minute wait to check for updates every time you launch, really?), non-intuitive, buggy and could and should have been designed to be more user friendly. No surprise that people are having issues when there having to download things from 3 different locations to update 1 bit of software.

Here is what I did
1 Microsoft store
2 install update
3 started game
4 goto content manager

and it shows no updates

The only liveries that were updated were the Aviators Club liveries, and the liveries for the 103 solo. If you haven’t installed the Aviators Club liveries, and haven’t bought the 103 solo, you won’t have any updates from the content manager.

But in my sim, my Content Manager showed available updates for every aircraft that was included in the deluxe package (or whatever they called the highest priced MSFS available).

With the Steam version, I had to update all (most?) of the aircraft from COntent Manager.

that’s because you have the Aviators Club liveries installed.
