Silence seems to be the MO of Asobo.

  • I also agree with you, the blue/yellow highlight of the knobs and buttons its crazy disturbing.

Open option menu “Accessibility” and change option 3 from “Lock” to “Lagecy”.
With Sim Update V this option was changed form Lagecy to Lock, swich it back and the blue high lights are gone.

Yes! The list of various messes is long.

When you find yourself in a hole, the FIRST thing you need to do is stop digging.

Well this is something at least, buried at the bottom of a post about bad behaviour. https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/policy-on-name-calling-harassment-and-threats

Wasnt the last ‘hotfix’ we got on a Friday night right before everyone went home for the night/weekend?

I kid you not this is fully maxed out aside from resolution scale at 100 on a 1440p monitor…

Update to my post on Tuesday.

The Good:
They added Stuttgart Airport which was missing before.

The Bad:
The Renderer doesn’t clip buildings correctly when very low to the ground.

The Ugly:
Like all others i noticed they seem to have reduced the graphic quality. :frowning:
Colors are saturated or washed out. And LOD was decreased heavily.

CTD:
My CTD-issues seem to have been vanished even i didn’t change anything.
Always loads fast. Repeated everything i did on Tuesday. No issues. Back then i had 5 CTDs in one hour. Today nothing.
If I have to guess then i would blame it on to the heavy network load the servers currently experience.
The network code or whatever processes the online-data on the PC then is not able to handle data not coming in or wrong data coming in.
A problem in the renderer would have been noticed much earlier during development.
And since developers usually do not have network issues to their own service any issues in the code there is hardly noticed.
But thats just a guess.

unbelievable, I am kinda glad my game crashes on the loading screen now… I hope they fix both at the same time…

Units of measure is set to U. S. System so inches of mercury should be used.
However, custom weather (slider) is European format.
Why is that?

Changing the Baro slider in custom weather still shows as 29.92 when the flight loads?
Why is that?

Still trying to update here, part files keep looping- delete and reload sim- rinse and repeat.
Been two days now, as I have to babysit it to check for loops.

This started a few updates ago, so maybe there’s some kind of conflict going on somewhere…given up now uninstalled and deleted all traces left that I could find.
Reinstall going smoothly so far woop.
Would really like to know what causes this, very poor show from such a huge software company

Overloaded servers may be?

This is really not a game fitting my “playstyle”. Once every month or so I want to try some flight, and I get stuck in a lengthy update process and I end up going to bed while game is patched. So I guess see you next patch :stuck_out_tongue:

Noticed that reflections are not displayed until an object comes into view. Shows how aggressive the object culling is. Something else that breaks the immersion.

Is this update the switch to DirectX 12 engine for PC or we are still on Directix11 ???
Can a dev answer??

Performance gains are nice, so is the world map which allows you to pinpoint locations.
I had a crash but after I removed all mods it didnt crash anymore.

One thing that really bothers me more than lower fps prior this patch is the over saturation and pop-in we experience everywhere. This game has now worse pop-in than euro truck simulator.

Sorry, you do not need a DEV to answer that, it is DirectX 11, they stated that in the last twich videos.

Tuesday and yesterday were dial up speeds but tonight it’s back to normal and was still looping.
Reinstall still going strong :+1:

Haven’t they said in a prior stream that this update will bring DirectX12 to PC the same time with Xbox Launch?
Why they like to be so slippery? Meh…
