Official Discussion: May 19th, 2022 Dev Update

Deleted reserved space and basically only installed Day 1 and premium plus. Lost all completed bush trips and all the money I’ve spent on add ons makes me sad when all add ons aren’t installed. However a process of elimination as I re apply them over the next few sessions should help nut out what broke the camels back, so to speak. With basic instal got 3hrs 8mins of flight time, which actually logged another bonus and cause for sadness.

Looks like they have also managed some server fixes? This morning I no longer had the mysterious download and no freeze on world map (this was with the beta build).
Flight was extremely smooth

Could we be back to a great experience again!!!

Note: I have NOT downloaded WU9

On Fridays Twitch, Microsoft said they found some tree rendering issue that they were able to change in the server and fix the problem without the need of a patch. I flew with them on Friday’s flight in Italy and it was smooth. Much better than the experience we had Thursday night.

I’m back up and running too (Xbox/X).

Last evening I decided to uninstall and reinstall the sim (premium deluxe version). I did not clear storage. Did NOT install WU9. All my saved data and settings are good.

VFR flights (mostly Kodiak 100) with G1000nxi have been great.

The F-18 would not load waypoints from the world map for a simple direct flight (said NaN for the departure and arrival airports) with no data. It would not populate the course with the sequence command in the HSI. However if I manually entered the waypoint coordinates they stuck (0-1) but the NaN-NaN remained.

Also funky behavior for an IFR flight plan from the world map with the G1000nxi in a few planes. Would not load correct flight plan/waypoints. It was odd. Restarted both the console and sim a few times and uninstalled and reinstalled the WT G1000nxi and everything is back to normal it appears.

Thank you!

Did you really need to quote the entire development newsletter into your post to add a one sentence reply?

Perhaps you could edit the post to fix it.

Hi just did a 4hr flight not one crash i re installed. The sim and downloaded the hotfix its working again awesome thanks on xbox series s

Ever since i turned off AI-Traffic, i got my FPS back and then some, to the point where i started to think that Asobo were onto something when they say “ongoing performance optimizations” in every release note.

Also turning both HAGS and Game Mode ON sent my latency into turbo mode. So i’m not ever turning those off because the “snappiness” difference is dramatic for me.

I’d say that statement may end up being a little premature, mate.

Still getting CTD on XBSX, spent over 6 hours reinstalling yesterday and first flight from Heathrow on world map CTD while loading.

I thought I’d fixed whole black screening issue, by just having minimal add-on loaded. In this belief I loaded in 777 freight and flew out of LFBD to finally do KSEA run. 7hrs in, just as I approached Canadian coast, screens went dark. I didn’t honk, so I can’t blame Trudeaus, but in disappointment I ended the flight with return to main menu option and CTD. Another 7hrs not logged, I discovered when I reloaded. I also found 3hrs of flight through PNG had disappeared from previous days flight with friends. Please sort this out, I hate having negative things to say about a game I’ve loved for 30+ years. Polish this diamond you’ve created.

I think on Xbox certainly at the moment it’s more of a cubic zirconium than a diamond, mate. Sadly.

A cubic zirconium is a man made diamond. This too is humans at the helm. The game/Sim is beautiful, modelling incredible, the work to date amazing.

The pressure the community is putting on them, they should be defecating diamonds. A roll back would’ve been sensible to some, maybe even me in my deeply disappointed moments.

However, this released better than a lot of highly hyped games did near to same time. I want to be able to run it with all my 3rd party additions and world updates, I’ve dropped a lot of coin like many others. I want study level planes, I want stability more. If that takes a moment longer, I’ll fly the base game, at least I’m flying. I’ve waited a lifetime for it to get this far. With the right amount of time and pressure… Whining is not going to get it done faster.

Yes I’m aware of that.

And I’m aware that these things take time. But I’m also aware that the sim has regressed on console. Considerably.

And we’re all allowed to voice our opinions and complaints, we’re all paying customers. You can view it as ‘whining’ if you want. I don’t. I see it as (reasonably) constructive criticism.

One week after the hot fix, still getting a bunch of stutters on approach and flights above two hours cause the game to crash. Makes me not want to use this sim anymore; but, of course I can’t because it’s the only one out for Xbox. Maybe we can talk about refunds?

Not only that but the first two airports I tested contained both the old airports with new on top. Rolling cache fresh for WU and all. No excuses the work is just sloppy and the testing even sloppier. It took me a whole few seconds to see the problems after loading in.

PG issues have never been addressed by Asobo and continue to get worse by compounding problems with conflicting assets. Instead of adding more to this sim they should be reducing the install size by removing conflicting and duplicate assets and fixing all these pack files. However I don’t think Asobo really knows what they are doing anymore.

I haven’t really seen any fixes actually FIXED in the last few updates even when listed as FIXED in the patch notes. In fact in many circumstances the bugs listed as fixed were actually worse. Case in point see Mouse Bugs fixed as a prime example.

Lets hope moving forward we can get some actual quality control on the sim instead of hyperbole and twitch streams with DLC that actually makes multiplayer performance worse in almost every aspect. Everyone enjoying all that new stuttering with the DLC flying around everywhere? Yeah back to Live traffic group mode.

For the love of whatever you believe in. Please fix the stutters and FPS issues. It has been 4 weeks now.
Did they say anything about that in the Q&A session?
