I have the steam version and unfortunately I have pressed the doomed “check file integrity” option after msfs failed to boot. I noticed I have to reinstall the whole sim. I am a premium deluxe customer subscribed to all world updates and free content. I did not have it installed however.
Now, forced to reinstall the sim it requires me to download 173GB, which is just an INSANE amount of data. I am unable to install the sim due to space limitations, it used to take about 125GB of space on my PC. I would like to have it installed (same config as before) but since it initially wants to download all I am now stuck with a pc without sim.
Please look into this, I am certainly not the only person with this problem.
