Great Britain update

In the new Great Britain update, London looks ■■■■. I uninstalled it again and reinstalled orbex!

Orbx has provided an update to their London Landmarks for the new photogrammetry but I don’t think this has made it to the marketplace yet.

Some buildings in the London photogrammetry do look a little rough but it’s incredible how the feel of London suburbs have been captured and you have to land a little GA plane on The Mall and scooter on up to Buckingham Palace - that’s a great feeling.

As a Londoner, this is definitely a keeper and I’m sure the rough edges will get improved over time.

POI in London are not photogrammetry but custom models, same as Orbx but some had a conflict with eachothers models.

We want to make these forums a positive environment for you to discuss Microsoft Flight Simulator related topics, and to give us your feedback on the sim.

Recently the team has received a number of complaints about the negative atmosphere on the forums. These complaints stem from excessive negative non-constructive posts.

These posts do not provide meaningful information that helps in the development of the simulator. Instead, these topics are often duplicate an existing topic and create conflict that usual require moderator intervention. These posts hurt the atmosphere of the forums, which drives some of our community away and may prevent others from joining.

We value constructive criticism about MSFS as it helps the developers further understand, triage and resolve problems within MSFS.

Take the following example posts:

The ATC in this simulator is ■■■■

ATC’s altitude instructions are awful. I was on a flight from KSFO to KDEN in an A320N, when ATC cleared me for descent below the minimum safe altitude. If I stayed at a safe altitude it would cancel my IFR clearance and my approach, so I followed their instructions leading to a crash on the side of a mountain.

ATC needs to take the terrain into account when issuing clearances!

The non-constructive example (top) provides no meaningful information, no one will be able to understand, reproduce or document the issue, and therefore the issue cannot be resolved.

We ask that you consider this going forward. We continue to welcome criticism and complaints so long as they are constructive in nature. You can read more about our policy change here.
