☀ 2021 MSFS SIM UPDATES - Part 2 (Unofficial)

This is my Personal Understanding of recent Updates & Change Logs (work in progress)

Yes, all this information is already in the forum, but it is spread out all over the place, and it makes it difficult to get a “Big Picture”

Also, MAJOR benefit of having it all in One Post, is that it is “Searchable

ie You can search on “Boeing” or “CTD” and get useful search finds.

========= End of HotFix 08/06/2021 ========

09/07/2021 World Update VI – Germany& Switzerland 1.19.8.0

Stability

  • Several crashes have been fixed across the title
  • Applying the default profile for the Mouse will no longer crash the title when an custom profile was loaded on PC
  • Fixed crash in autosave in bushtrip missions when the user has a non-ASCII name
  • The title can now be launched in Safe mode 85 via a pop-up to deactivate all Community and Marketplace content on PC only. The option will be available after a crash as long as Devmode is not enabled.
  • Fixed some scenarios where mandatory content was not downloaded or installed properly on PC if it had been deleted via the content manager (“You are missing packages that are essential to run Microsoft Flight Simulator. Please update the application and try again.”)

  • Maximum photogrammetry draw distance has been further increased. As a result photogrammetry downtown building areas will be visible from farther away
  • Better management of low bandwidth Bing terrain data and photogrammetry streaming as the change to Offline data is no longer persistent (changes applied only affect the current flight)
