Official Discussion: May 11th HOTFIX []

Never an issue? It has nothing to do with all the CTD’s people are reporting?

I thought this was fixed properly in SU5(?)

Or did I dream that?

“Fixed” as in they improved draw distances signficantly. I’m pretty sure the far north / south effect is still there, just nowhere near as bad as it used to be due to the draw distance fixes in SU5.

Was never an issue prior to SU9 and not during beta. My issue seems to be live weather , for whatever reason.
Only with SU9 have I noticed things loading slower, popping in. Was not this bad in previous SU updates. So, something has changed

Ah OK. Still a work in progress then.

On a related note, I am getting awful scenery pop-up when over Los Angeles.

Very poor draw distances, and the scenery leaps in an huge square chunks only a mile or two off the nose of the plane. Never used to do this.

Doesn’t happen over London.

Yes I am as well except error code is : 0x8007042b


if i find a solution i will post it here.

I was wondering about the CDT and what I could have done wrong. I noticed that my Joystick was not pugged. Plugged the Joystick - Now the Update seems to be without CDT… So - if you have a CDT, plug in everything. I am on Windows 10.

Not saying it isn’t , but just something I felt I noticed. If they have done that they should tell us, so to stop the guessing.

Comes back after a restart of the sim

You were spot on.

I just took off near San Diego, CA and the reduced draw distance/pop-ins are gone.

WOW! Is that some whacky sim limitation?!

I’m sure glad CA, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean are my stomping grounds.

Lightning still looks extremely weird. It’s been improved in many ways… we now have multiple strokes, and it’s not as slow as it used to be. But it shows up in front of objects it should be behind. It often even shows up INSIDE the cockpit… it’s the weirdest thing ever! Comeon Asobo, fix this! :slight_smile:


VR menus still not fixed and the ground terrain is still low resolution. LOD length appears to be sorted though

Got the same error. Fixed it by re-downloading the “Digital Ownership” file in my microsoft library.

Nice areas to fly actually. I fly out of KSAN and KMYF a lot in winter (GA planes freeze up in my area of Canada in winter). Never had any draw distance issues there since SU5.


thank you! that fixed it!!


did more than 1hr IFR flight on Vatsim now with Carenado PA34 Seneca, Navigraph, all is ok, no problems with stability, no CTDs, no disconnections. Somehow I see that stutters are little bit gone but need do more tests in next days. I’m still very satisfied, all looks fine.


Tomorrow I will try it.

Anyone on Microsoft store version, and cannot download the update? The sim starts up without prompting me to update??

Successfully landed at EKBI which before the patch caused CTDs. Great job!! :grinning: :+1:
