[Microsoft Flight Simulator – Canada World Update Trailer]
Canada is filled with a plethora of sights to explore from the air: magnificent urban architecture, wave-battered northern coastlines, and vast sweeps of tundra, glaciers and towering peaks. Microsoft Flight Simulator’s World Update XI invites simmers to explore this massive, diverse country, presented in the highest resolution and fidelity yet!
In creating World Update XI: Canada, the Microsoft Flight Simulator team proces…

(This question will be used as a reference between each update)
Cessna 195 - made in the USA. No connection with Canada that I’m aware of.
What was the mandatory update today please? It wasn’t wu11 as that’s not in my installed content.
Yes it was. WU’s are almost always preceeded by a mandatory general update.
It’s a nice feeling when your home country gets the world update treatment, but then they forget or miss your major city that you live in(Edmonton)
Release notes anywhere? I’m not seeing Canada in my content?
You have to go into Marketplace and install it.
Unfortunately downtown Edmonton still doesn’t have the Ice District. Guessing it’s because Bing still doesn’t have updated aerial or photogrammetry but disappointing nonetheless
Also they used downtown Calgary footage for the Edmonton portion of the trailer and missed mentioning Calgary entirely
Edit: Also noticed Edmonton isn’t mentioned in the release notes, assuming that’s a mistake as well?
As always we need to go into the Marketplace to get World Updates.
I mean: how clear can they make it:
And as a friend pointed out, didn’t use a Canadian tail number either
On the Xbox, I received a 20 MB mandatory update, then another mandatory update 275 MB upon relaunching the sim and then finally world update 11 in content manager 12 GB. Sim version hasn’t changed. I assume no other changes are being made at this time.
Umm Just got a CTD when downloading the wu Canada in marketplace. 25% download then got this sad face ctd. Re-staring FS… fingers crossed. BTW nothing in community folder…
A World Update is scenery only. Sim Updates contain core sim changes.
So your assumption is spot on!
If I had to guess, the update was the airac.
In the release post, they say 'TIN" and mention several cities. I know this means (presumably) these are the new photogrammetry cities, or at least the cities that got specific attention.
I was just wondering what ‘TIN’ stands for
LOL that’s sad, but funny, Yanks don’t know Canada, Hey we are right next to you.
it’s Billy Bishop (not Pearson), I mean an included airport since day one.
edit: but what they did was/is very nice. More please …
Not new at all. Canada previously had 10 PG of the “new” cities already in PG. They only added 2 more. Not sure why they’re advertising 12 cities.
