The tradition continues

Asobo, in a matter of a few months, managed to establish a tradition with its FSXX updates:

Fix some minor things, bring some new eye candy, but generally make the experience worse by introducing new bugs, decreased performance, braking things etc.

I should be excited for updates and new features, but I have learned to fear them instead.

Asobo, if you are reading this: Please break with this tradition. I can happily do without it. Thank you.


Haha. Yeah. Hugs are always welcome. Thanks.


Actually, this is the first time since launch that an update really got me back using msfs everyday again. For me. Performance got alot better and the uk update looks the best from all the world updates so far.

Strange how so may people have so many different experiences after this update. Especially performance wise…


Asobo, if you are reading this, please ignore.


Performance is ultra much better after this update. Check your system or Graphic card settings.


Really? They fixed two major bugs! The spikes and the water going up the coast

Most see similar or better performances

Yes they did break taxi lights (not really a show stopper) and flight dynamics for a few planes which is a lot more concerning considering they were not that great to begin with


Flight dynamics and modeling would be most important in a “flight” & “simulator”. To me, flight modelling is important.


Yes, please ignore this comment.


I disagree. But i’m definately not a ‘defender’ of asobo.

This update was the best so far for me. And i’ve seen alot of updates fail indeed since alpha. Sorry you see otherwise.


Wich flight dynamics from wich planes are you talking about specific? I haven’t noticed anything different in flight characteristics.

Overal flight dynamics seem alot better then the older sims. Except for maybe the airliners. Well i believe their flight dynamics are better but the aircraft themselfs aren’t properly making use of the new flight model. Ga aircraft seem to behave much more realistic then anything else in the flight sim world.

Aerobatics however…

Seriously? How could you miss this thread?

Didn’t see it. Read the first sentences and you’re Right! Noticed it on the tbm yesterday, almost didn’t slow down on approach and touch down speed was alot slower than usual. Only did one flight so thought i messed something up myself. Didn’t pay anymore attention to it. Was flying the 172 today and seems all fine though.

Yes it seems to impact the turboprops the most.


Pun Intended! :wink:

They are working towards having beta testers so they can have more testing done before updates are released I think that’s when things will improve with new updates, but may cause more delayed updates which I expect people will moan about.

Boy I wish I could say this update has made my player experience better, BUT I’VE BEEN ■■■■ TRYING TO DOWNLOAD IT FOR 2 DAYS NOW. Yea I’ve tried all the solutions for looping downloads with no success. Another WONDERFULLY TROUBLESOME product by Microsoft.

I have noticed after the latest update that my frame rates went from 60 fps to around 40 fps. Not happy with the decrease in performance.

Isn’t t this a discussion forum? Guess they can’t take constructed criticism :grinning:


That is strange… my framerate has increased with this update (approx 5-10 FPS). I always monitor performance metrics while gaming.

i7-9700k 4.6GHz, GTX1080ti, 32GB, 3440x1440, NVMe install

Wish I could say my framerates have gone up, but they are at a big 0 since I can’t even get the update downloaded and installed.
