Official Discussion: November 10, 2022 Development Update

PC or Xbox?

Nev mind just restarted for the 3rd time and its doin it now lol (pc) i believe it was steam taking its time to register the update

I may have spoken too soon.

I see my update installing additional content such as Kai Tak Hong Kong.

I really hoped they’d made all content opt in, rather than opt out and then delete later. The text presented does make it seem like you download the base and then additional content later in the marketplace, as it should be.

Hopefully someone can confirm that I’m wrong!

Asobo: We would prefer content to be OPT IN. It cuts down on update times, and many people do not have unlimited data, even in 2022.

Benefits will be:

Reduced update times
Reduced strain on servers
Reduced data consumption for users
Lower carbon footprint across the user base as we wait for only items we want to be installed.

I have been stuck on 13% for an hour now. Would welcome any suggestions. I don’t even want the DHC2 Beaver!!!

Same. The download doesn’t work. It looks like the servers are bent into a rusty nail.

Can’t really complain at all this amazing free content (just wow) but reading the patch notes it was a little odd to see that Gliders have 7 tutorials & heli’s have none.

It would also be nice to know where the helipads & glider airfields are if possible.

Ah there she is

on startup… and then this after the update search,

This will take some time here… thanks in advance Asobo, looking forward to it :hugs:

hmmmm nothing happens here if I click one of these pics in the middle :shushing_face:

I don’t know if this will help but I managed to delete the offending file from the FS folder (which for me was C:\Users\andre\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Official\OneStore) and restart the installation. It picked up where it left off and has now got past the bit where it was stuck. Good luck.

I use the sim with Keyboard/Mouse and a Xbox controller for now, but there this issue since Sim Update 5, everytime i use the right thumbstick to look around some White Dot appears. Ive been looking everywhere from here to reddit and youtube but i cant toggle this white dot off! And it is still a thing in SU11.

London, are the server just death right now?

Same here on xbox, can not longer remove the white dot in the center, before when pressing up or down on the D-pad it disappear, but now it won’t.

First off, my setup is 8700K, 32GB RAM, 3060ti, mostly ultra settings except Terrain details 100, No live traffic or AI to ease the pain on my old CPU, screen resolution 1080p.

I want to congratulate the MSFS team for the 40th anniversary update.
I was a vocal critic of the QC problems that arised after SU5. I just came back to the game, tested it again in the past couple of weeks (SU10 and SU11).

With my relatively old CPU and medium range graphics card I manage to fly out of medium size airports onto large PG cities at low altitude, with FPS hovering around 30, which is what I hoped for.

As a consequence I am able to enjoy the game in most situations. I will be investing in a more modern platform soon to enjoy it even further.

I must say the MSFS team listened to us, the game is now stable, no more random crashes, the experience is fantastic compared to what it used to be.

I only have two somewhat surprising issues:

  1. DX12 gives me much lower performance than DX11, and I expected it to be the other way around given my specific configuration is very much CPU bound.

  2. When deploying an aircraft at a busy airport such as JFK, the drop in performance is much more steep than I expected and much more than it used to be (for instance, a Cessna 172 at JFK gives me 9 FPS vs 30 FPS flying low over NYC). Even with my previous graphics card, a measly 1070ti, on SU5/SU6, I managed nearly 15/17FPS at JFK, so I am surprised by that.

In any case bravo for the hard work to improve quality. There are no more random CTDs and the visuals have improved drastically, that is the most important.

Glad to be back.

Has anything changed since then? I have the same.

Last night after 30 minutes of trying everything back to normal for me so I finished my installation. But I did not check this morning yet.

Thanks a lot! Appreciate it!

There was something strange that happened for me. About 30 mins before the update was due, I started the sim (well, you never know).

The splash screen was still the old one, but the loading screens were new, showing the helicopters etc. No new content though. So those screens somehow got downloaded silently.

I closed the sim and opened the MS Store and I had some updates, which I downloaded. Then, right on time (1600 hrs here), MSFS popped up in the Store. I should add that I don’t have the XBox app.

Overall, a very easy and quick update experience.

Did these updates not make it to the Marketplace on Nov 11?

What’s the status?
