Yesterday I was surprised to receive the next patch from microsoft/asobo.
As far as I can see some top issues are fixed:
- Big houses in small villages bug fixed
I checked that in the Northern Germany Flatlands ;-), that I knwow well (between Bremen and Hannover, Verden, Hoya, etc. ). The big houses that vieable in a lot of places are removed. There are bigger houses, but that may be supermarkets and litte industry spots, but that sems to be realistic.
Very important, as some others also reported: You have to update the Japan Scenery inside the contents menu. Than you have to restart (!) FS (otherwise it seems not to take effect).
I observe one problem:
I have a lot of bigger sceneries larger than 700 mb , especially photorealistic city data in my community folder. That makes the loading times of FS during very loooooooooong!!! And FS is searching inside the contents and that takes also time , in my case it shows nothing but the sandclock. Also I can*t open the market menü, also searching endless time.
Do some of you observe the same? So I had to rename the community folder and replace it by an emty one. Than FS loading time is very fast and I could open content manager and marketplace menu.
Now I delete all bigger scenery datamore than 700 mb and loading times are acceptable. Also I use a scenery manager, which is working with links (that also is possible with the windows dlink function, if you dont have enough space on you first drive, just place your whole communtiy folder to a second drive or use that scenery manager (f.e. MSFS Addon Linker) . Please only use the windows function if you are advanced PC user - but it is not to complicated, there are advises on you tube about it). Anyway - if there are to many bigger photorealitic scneries, FS seems to have long loadingtimes and the avove mentioned issues.
- “Dolphin effect” - especially in Cessna Citation Longitude is fixed
I did a flight between KLAX and KLAS and the Autopilot worked fine.:-)Thats ver nice!!! Thanx!
Thunder and lightning when only view clouds - seems to be solved. But often there is thunder and lightning when overcast. But not always there should be thunder when overcast in the reality… so there maybe some finetuning possible?!
I have’t any CTD since I always open VFR map when starting FS. But that seems to be solved too.
No other problems reported but there may be other issues.
A big advice: Deactivate your community folder (rename the old one, create an emty community folder, no need to delete your addons) before you proceed an update by MS / Asobo. Later you can activate the folder again but first check if everything is working fine. Otherwise we don’t do good to the ASOBO team , because it may be users fault
