Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find out about Known Issues

Click the link titled “Known Issues” in the hamburger menu, which is opened by clicking the button next to your profile picture on the navbar.

This page will be updated within a few days to reflect the latest patch.

How do I see my current version number?

Press Alt+Enter to change the program from full screen to windowed mode. The version number is at the top title bar of the window. Additionally, the version number is displayed by holding down Alt+Tab (above the window icon) or available in-game by clicking on your gamer tag profile icon from the top right of the main screen. The version name is displayed in the dialogue box under your gamer tag

Do I need to do anything with add-ons in the community folder?

We highly recommended that you move the content from your community folder to a temporary location on your hard drive before applying the patch and replacing after testing the new version.

What is the file size of the update?

Size to download:
If you update the sim from the previous version:

1,88 GiB

If you do a new install:

Standard: 113,40 GiB
Deluxe: 114,90 GiB
Premium Deluxe: 116,91 GiB

Note the size of the update depends on the version of the game you have purchased. Don’t be alarmed if the update is smaller or larger

Why were certain bugs or issues not included in the patch notes?

The patch notes don’t mention everything that has been updated. If you are still experiencing an issue then file a ticket on Zendesk , using the “Submit a Request” option on the top menu bar. Include as much detail as possible, including the version of the game you are running. Remember the forums are not the official platform for bug tracking.

This patch is part of an ongoing patch release, so if your issue isn’t patched this time it does not mean it won’t ever get fixed! Check out the #self-service:bugs-issues category to see if others are reporting the same issues (where you can also vote if you have the same issue)

The Known Issues page will be updated within a few days to reflect the updated bugs.

How do I see my FPS?

Windows 10 has a built-in FPS counter in the Xbox Game Bar app. To use the FPS counter over your game, there are a few one-time steps you might need to take.

Important! You’ll need Xbox Game Bar version 3.34.11002.0 or later to use the FPS counter.

  1. Press Windows logo key Win + G to open Game Bar, then select Widget menu > Performance.
  2. Choose the FPS tab, then press Request access.
  3. Follow the prompts, then restart your PC for the changes to take effect.
    When you launch a game, the FPS counter will be ready and waiting in Xbox Game Bar.

What should I do if the update doesn’t start automatically?

  1. Check Windows 10 for updates. If any, restart your PC
  2. Manually check MS Store for Updates
  3. Then update MSFS

If this still doesn’t work, the best course of action is to log out, restart your computer, and log back in.

What should I do if the update seems to stall or stop downloading?

The first thing to try is closing down MSFS and restarting it. The downloading should start again once MSFS is restarted. If there are problems with a particular file downloading repeatedly (on a loop) then exit MSFS and browse to the download location where the file is downloading to using windows explorer. Delete the offending file (if it is listed) or the latest downloaded file in that folder and then restart MSFS. The patch should continue as normal. (Note only delete files do not delete folders!)

Try starting the sim and see if it says there is a mandatory update and redirects you to the store (which almost always triggers it for me) and also make sure you click “get updates” in your store library whether it looks like there are updates or not

No issues with download or installation. Everything finished up quickly.

Don’t forget to go into content manager and grab the remaining updates after the main / initial one completes.

Just under 500MB worth in there.

Splash screens look nice!

Wow! Downloaded the 1.88GB in-sim update at 300+ Mbits. Still a far cry from using up my full 1 Gbit pipe, but a lot better than the 50-100 Mbit max I’ve been seeing in recent updates. Someone’s done something on the Microsobo end of things. The download was done in a matter of a couple of minutes,

Rebooted my Xbox twice. Still nothing yet. Will keep trying.

Has anyone on Xbox seen the update for download yet?

Nice, finally no major download speed issues - I saw upwards of 130Mbits/s during this download!

edit - over 300Mbits/s during world update download. Whoever has sorted the download speeds thank you!

MS Store goofed out on me on the initial download and the sim crashed immediately after launching. First time I’ve had that happen for an update… All downloading OK now though! Look forward to jumping in!

Yup, here it ls downloading of both MS store and the in sim update finished in record time! Sims loading up now…:pray:

So no fixes in this one - just new content ?
