Discussion: April 15th, 2021 Development Update

The issues we will be including:

  • WASM stand alone modules used in some add-ons are no longer working
  • Cockpit screens can be unresponsive if the RTC is not skipped

Please, don’t add issues; fix them. :wink:

But as mentioned by others in this thread, added so many other bugs like broken cockpit views, the axis 50% bug, etc. Not including them in the hotfix is extremely disappointing if that would be the case.

Thanks for acknowledging the problem hundreds of users lost their logbook with the “packages out of date”

…But are you keeping a record of the users that have been affected?
Because our zendesk tickets got closed!

Still no info on 747 ground steering and flaps issue :frowning: , I lost count how many times I mentioned to zendesk since few updates ago

I doubt whether MS/Asobo will be able to restore missing logbooks. More likely is to stop the problem happening in future.

Agreed, please ASOBO, in the hotfix, restore the “Toggle Cockpit View Freelook (Hold)” (right mouse button) which is no longer working after going into Instrument View.

Even if they can’t, at least, I wish they could make the PC version address this in a PC specific way. In effect, all user-facing settings regarding controllers, logbook, and a few others are all "managed’ as if the PC is an Xbox(1).

The problem is that if there is a bug in the code, or a bug in the “cloud” sync, you loose it all like the recent deleted logbook bug is telling. Instead, with user manageable and editable files (json, whatever), every single user can manage his/her own backup and restore process in case this is happening.

I doubt they will change this because the way the game is managing such user settings is also a by product of using Xbox related dev tech and tools, which is encapsulating all of this inside a tightly controlled system. This shouldn’t make impossible adding the capability from a technical standpoint though, because whatever the “managed” system in place, it is still possible for the game to implement code to load user managed settings files after or in-lieu of the initial Xbox managed settings.

Yes. My hope is that the logbooks weren’t overwritten or re-created, because in that case it’s bye-bye.
I hope there is a corrupt entry or a new index of entries in the database and all previous records are just ignored due to poor coding.

Opposite happens as well. When on final, if u escape and go back, power doubles, lol

No I don’t believe this will be addressed in the hotfix as the test team is still working on this one and the hotfix build is already complete and going through final testing - progress is being made and it is high pri.


I can’t install this update. It was taking a long time to download. So I went to bed when it was on 6.5 GB completed. When I woke up it was still at the same point. still had movement. The counter and percentage were animated, indicating something was happening but it must have been stuck on the same file all night.

These constant enormous updates (22GB, are you for real?!) are getting ridiculous. Just let me fly the d*&%@#! thing already!

It would be bad enough if it weren’t for the fact that every update introduces new and more interesting bugs that I didn’t have to deal with before.

Really hope the hotfix addresses the multiplayer bug that is causing major stutters all over the sim. It’s getting frustrating!


I have tried it again and got some more information. It is apparently getting stuck downloading pc-fs-base-bigfiles-0.1.129.fspatch. It keeps downloading this over and over continuously. It gets to just over 1 GiB and 20% then it resets to 0 and 0% but the file count still remains at [1/57].

Anybody know where I can get some help with this problem? It is so irritating, it was work normally until I started it last night and it forced the update that it can’t complete.

I feel like I should get a refund on the price of this software.

Still nothing about the stupid useless logbook popping up right in the middle of the shutdown ruining the experience. Such an easy fix and they still haven’t done a thing about it.


I thought that there was a beta testing group before the release. Have they tested anything?

Bonjour moi j’ai des problèmes pour réinstaller certain avions qui me fond planter le jeu des conseils a donner MERCI😎

SOLVED: This fixed it for me.

If the download is stuck on a package such as “pc-fs-base-bigfiles-0.1.59.fspackage”

A) Disable Window Auto-tuning

  • In the Windows search bar, type Command and look for ‘Command Prompt
  • In the menu select “Run as administrator
  • Enter: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
  • Press enter
  • Reboot your computer

This may be a record breaker for the number of "■■■■■■■■"s, but nothing to be proud of :-1:

Thanks for pointing this out and have no regards or help for frustrated guy venting his frustration.

Well hello Mr @HarryRaner. What an emotional outbreak. The point is: when you don’t study how the sim works and where the updates are you will have a hard time. The information that you seek is on this forum, Jayne posts this info every single time there is an update. This sim is under active development, with regular updates, and it is a very complex piece of software. It is not something that you just jump into and expect that you understand everything at once. So my advise would be: search this forum with the right keywords, tone down your emotions and everyone here will be glad to help you out. Chill?


They discussed this in the dev Q&A and some fixes will come in the next update
