[OFFICIAL] Weekly Dev Update Screenshot Challenge: Australia

Hello everyone,

Our screenshot challenge is now available to enter via Twitter with #MSFSchallenge!

It’s time for another screenshot challenge! The idea is to collectively explore different parts of the world together - areas that may be very familiar to you or perhaps a new place you have never flown before. Feel free to find others to fly with to capture the challenge, or go solo!

Last week’s winner from Lunar New Year: jienbacktory2 (Twitter)

This Week’s Challenge

Australia: The free Australian Update is out, meaning it’s time for a World Update challenge! Capture a screenshot of one of the new POIs in the Australin Update.

We will be flying in Australia for our weekly Community Fly-in this week, and it would be a fantastic event for you to join in on to capture your screenshot. Click here for details.

If you have any screenshot challenge ideas for the future, send @Jummivana a DM!

A few from me from yesterday’s stream - we flew the PMDG DC6 from Adelaide to Melbourne Essendon with a visual approach over the CBD and wow it was stunning! The cockpit screenshot is my favourite with the “window view” - looked like real life at one point!
