Discussion: Sim Update 2 (

Thanks for that link. No- I went to NYC and BOS- no snow. Went a little further north and saw snow. I guess the snow needs to be deeper before it shows in the sim maybe?

My Norton was blocking the game from accessing data during part 3 of 177 or whatever and wasn’t letting the update happen. I got an alert from Norton when I tried a second time that told me what was happening. I had to exclude the game from Norton and then the update continued.

never mind found out.

nvm, found out. Facepalm lol

Seeing a lot of strange pyramid shapes in the ground.

I think wind or live weather in general is broken…i have zero wind at FL250



The latest FBW Development version now works for anyone having difficulties.

Oh man so happy to hear this… hopefully no CTD during a long flight.

Downloading now very fast speeds have to go to work :frowning_face: but will look forward to trying tonight.

Very happy to see the winter ground textures. Gorgeous!


Can we please have an option to turn off icing effects completely? It was possible in the 320 to keep moving the slider to 0 in developer mode until it stuck, but not anymore. It keeps moving back. All AC seem to have the problem too.

Icing is too-unrealistic in the sim. I really just want to shut it off. But, nobody seems to be listening to my months-long rant about it.

Can’t hide the King Air 350i yoke. Do you have this issue too?

Currently flying the King Air, no issues here.

That’s a weird one… Should be some conflict with the mod i’m running.

I have been flying over the mountains of Madrid, and there is no snow, although now in reality from my window, it is night, there is a closed fog and I cannot verify it :face_with_hand_over_mouth: but in autum/winter there’s always something on the peaks, although in central winter it’swhen everything it 's painted white, and you can even ski.

I understand that Asobo is based on ‘real time’ models like this:

It’s realistic, because it’s still data from satellite.sensors. In this case (Pyrinees), MSFS2020 represent no the snow cover surface. Well done!


Maybe try logging out of the game… Then logging back in… I think i had this problem once

FBW mod will not work with the update until it is updated

I was just going to report the same, all looks really good, then the dreaded SEVERE ICING warning. Totally unrealistic, at least give us a hack to disable this.


The dev version now works tonight.


Endless Loading Screen, not even getting to the main menue. Deleted everything inside the Community folder. So there seems to be one last solution: Reinstall the sim? Nice move to brake the game right befor the christmas holidays :slight_smile:
