Discussion: October 15th, 2020 Development Update

Hi there, I know about that way but that’s not a simple, in sim key for doing the same and won’t easily allow for multiple screen shots.

Its the next website development news update. It has nothing to do with a patch.

Yep that foxed me as well. If I hadn’t have googled Long EZ I would have been clueless. Worked out what was going on after that. Is Long EZ a Asobo creation though, would they comment on third party content this way?

Also hoping Sydney from Orbx comes to the Store. I know I can buy it from Orbx Central but I can’t be bothered :slight_smile:

The “225 degrees at 2kts” issue raised by the author of this topic has been fixed on Update 2 (

Fixed live weather wind offset in higher latitude areas (America, Asia…) that was causing the 3kts Wind bug


Yesh it’s just not scheduled into a sprint yet and therefore they don’t know what update it will be available in, doesn’t mean they arn’t working on it which is clearly evident in the report.

It probably does mean though that it is unlikely to be delivered in the next patch so will take a bit longer. The fact they’ve started some of these though is a good sign.

There’s a lot of topics every day, even in The “Bugs” section of this forum - I get it. But it took me not 5 minutes to figure out that there’s more than on threat dealing with “lightning” with fairly high vote counts as well:
Too much Thunder and Lightning (293)
Lightning in mostly sunny skies (252)
Everywhere Thunderstorms ?!?!? (124)
Live weather = Clear, I get thunder (59)
That’ 728 votes at the time of this post and would put in on #2 instead of #9 in the Top Bugs list. So “Backlog” might not be appropriate here.


I flew the Dreamliner from JFK to EHAM today and it seems that the 225/3 bug has risen it’s ugly head again! Has this happened to anybody else?

Great, thank you very much for the tip about Game Bar and correcting me on the shortcut!
Cheers. :slight_smile:

Raising the same topic with four different threads is counterproductive.
I merged these threads into one. It is more relevant to raise ONE issue with ONE thread than to open multiple ones.
“United we stand. Divided we fall.”


I find it interesting that we have things slated for update 9, but no word as to what things they are planning for putting in updates 6, 7, or 8. I’m guessing update 9 is part of some larger milestone (is that when the next World Update is?)

Thank you for that post. Yes! This is Microsoft… not some new-kid-on-the-block. Hire enough top notch folks (with flight sim experience!) to get these patches done. Waiting months and months is not acceptable when a product is a buggy as this at release. You owe that to your customers.

Yes, people seem to tend not to use the search function before opening a thread. There seems to be a plethora of weather-related threads too…


I’m wondering if the Game Bar could be completely removed, or if it is mandatory for Flight Sim ?

Thanks for any advice !


Just turn it off in windows setting menu.


This has happened to me while creating a flight plan in simbrief and loading it in the world map, also when creating the flight plan in the world map, and directly inputing it in the FMC.

If you are going to do this, then you should also merge the vote counts. Otherwise, it’s a significant under-representation of the customer’s concern. If the system doesn’t allow for this, then someone should be adding the missing votes to the totals provided to development teams.


Yes, merging the threads is one thing, but by doing so omitting a lot of votes is quite another.

At first I understood your move to merge the threads but seeing that by doing so the votes might be lost I have second thoughts:
Best practice imho would be merging overlapping threads into one and adding the votes accordingly. Should the system not allow that, that should be changed. Until then, maybe you could browse the “bugs” category before a “snapshot” is taken in order to identify multiple threads for the same subject. As I wrote, it took me not 5 minutes to find several threads regarding “lightning” in the “top-50-votes”

I mean, the initial release and patches didn’t do them much in terms of goodwill. Hopefully everything sent their way was civil.
