The Sim Update 10 public beta has been active for about a week now, and so far we have received lots of valuable feedback that will influence upcoming future SU10 beta builds during the testing period. On behalf of the dev team, thank you to everyone who has been reporting issues with the beta build. This is extremely helpful to us as we prepare for the full release of SU10. If you would like to participate in this public test, you can find instructions on how to join here. Please note this opportunity is to provide and collect feedback on the current state of the build.

Additionally, we released updated versions of the Beechcraft Staggerwing and Gee Bee Model Z and R-2 earlier this week. You can download the new versions from your Content Manager, and you can read the release notes here.

One of the new features coming in Sim Update 10 is support for Nvidia DLSS, a graphics rendering mode that has been highly requested by the community for several months. What can players expect from DLSS when this feature goes live with SU10 in August? YouTuber ObsidianAnt has installed the SU10 beta build and made a video comparing the various different DLSS modes versus traditional anti-aliasing methods, showing the benefits and limitations of each one.
