[Polls] World Update XVI: Caribbean

Like I post every update… :slight_smile:

Now I genuinely wouldn’t go to the trouble to try all of this to improve speeds for this update. However, if you want something fast, use a VPN. It works in a lot of cases,

Cheers! :airplane:

Yes, it is a known issue. I wouldn’t attempt to fix it with any known fixes as it’s content server related.

MS know why the speeds are bad. Thought they had that sorted. Mind boggles as to why they keep letting it happen.
They should have bought Cisco and not Activision/Blizzard.

Be curious to see comparisons between the now available handcrafted airports and their already available payware.

MDPP - Dreamflight Studios
MKJS - Final Approach Simulations
TTCP - Final Approach Studios
MYEH - RW26 Simulations

In previous releases, I’ve stuck with the payware and removed the handcrafted as they didn’t measure up but time will tell on these.

Download speeds awful.

Still really bad ground textures in lots of places, I wish this would be worked on in the updates rather than adding POIs and handcrafted airports.

Yes, it looks like AI Traffic was updated and some other things, would love to know the details on these fixes.

FortunateIy I didn’t experience the slow download speeds being reported. In the UK and all downloaded and installed in 15 minutes.

Terrible download speed as usual, and when sdone low bandwidth or No internet connection. I have 1000mb/s and No internet issues. So What was the other update up on start?

3 Likes

My download was actually quite fast compared to the past (Central USA). Maybe 7-10 minutes to download, decompress, and display the menu.

Full disclosure, I started the download very soon after the announcement.

Looks like MUCL was the one missed.

I’ve been flying in the Caribbean all week gearing up for this update. Yesterday I flew around North Eleuthera, no issues. Today StutterFest. And the water masking looks worse after the update. All the sandbars north east of MYEH are missing the nice water mask they had yesterday.

I fly between Princess Juliana and St Barts all the time, one of my favorite spots to come back to week after week. Today ST Barts is a StutterFest. The boulders near TFFJ were popping in and out and blurry, before the update they were clear and crisp when approaching. This alone is so disappointing I may just have to uninstall WU Caribbean.

A lot of the “point of interests” are just “a bay,” or “some beach.” Nothing new except a POI pin. Even the Maho Beach right next to Princess Juliana doesn’t have people, or even an umbrella. Just white sand and a POI marker. Another 16gb update with pointless points of interest (Oceana comes to mind.) After every “free” world update or SU we are getting worse performance. The sim feels bloated and over worked.
