XBOX Feedback and Improvements | OT

Thanks. If any of you want to report to Zendesk as well, that would be helpful. There’s only so much I can do. :slight_smile:

Thanks. I did report the degradation over longer flights / during descent and approach. However, this seems to have improved significantly since yesterday’s hotfix. I’ll need to do another couple of longer flights to be sure but initial signs were promising. :crossed_fingers:

I’ll cross it off the list when we know for definite that things have improved. :slight_smile:

I cant give any technical stats or anything but I’m running a XSX on a 4k gaming monitor. Flying my C152 through the mountain ranges up from west Sale to Hotham was incredible last night. Never looked so good. Even with poor Internet, the clouds, trees and volumetric lighting just added so much depth to the visuals. It was wicked. Very happy.

There’s no backcourse mode on the cub hey?

Could just need to re-input the direct to function, as it might still be trying to direct you to an earlier established direct-to line. If that makes sense

Hey, thanks for adding the HDR bug on Xbox, shouldn’t be too crazy of a fix for Asobo to implement.

Also not sure if you can add these issues to the thread either, but all the Xbox Official Peripherals are having issues on the Xbox, both the Thrustmasters T-Flight HOTAS ONE, and the Razer Turret Keyboard. Since these issues are Xbox related/only, it might be a good idea to keep track of them.

Hope these issues could get added to the list as well.

I still have the Long Haul Problems, particularly with the 787. It will stutter and then it will completely crash.

We’ll I followed it for a time to see if it would eventually line up but unfortunately it did not, seemed it was leading me to the previous waypoints so I continued on using landscape and geographic landmarks to find my way following the line on the VFR map. If this could be patched next update that’d be great.

I have problems with many CTD when I will land and I have problems with the A320 - sometimes all instruments are turning off, but I can land the plane correctly.

Has anyone else noticed an issue with night time flying? I get random color flashes everywhere it’s dark on my series x. It randomly changes colors but happens about every 5 seconds in the same spot

Hey - running on X Series X, I get very regular CTD on the World Map screen.

Strangely it seems to always happen twice - as in boot game, go to map screen > CTD, repeat > CTD, repeat then it works ok. It wouldn’t be so bad but you need to sit through two instances of the software loading again, so each time I’m looking at a 7 minute delay to get in the air.

Adding this because I didn’t seen in updated list of known issues but think it must be fairly common.

never had a issue with the world map - so i dont think it is a common issue

I’m on the XBOX Series S and haven’t encountered a problem… it runs really smooth and I am incredibly happy with the result.

Would be great though to have AI traffic improvements - the airports seem dead with little AI traffic (not sure if this is because I have “live traffic” on or not. Also, it would be great to have some actual liveries in the game.

Another minor suggestion - it would be great to save your callsign and flight # instead of having to re-enter it each and every time you enter the world map.

Otherwise, I am really happy. Am astonished it works so well on my Series S.


I have frozen once while on world map. Only time I’ve had a freeze on the game to be fair

With you regarding liveries, I’m not sure if this will be possible on Xbox due to copyright etc, hopefully though. The AI traffic definitely isn’t right, although I suspect this probably helps keep the game running stable on the console, especially around busy airports and cities.

The issue with HDR is that it’s set to 10000 nits peak brightness, it’s too bright, blowing out highlights. No consumer TV is capable of 10000 nits, we need an in-game calibration tool to set our own peak brightness level. HDR, Dolby Vision look awful on my OLED at the moment. I’m also noticing more framerate drops while using VRR at 120Hz.

I’m having continuous CTDs on the XBOX Series X. Usually during the taxi after landing. The latest hotfix has drastically decreased the graphics quality. Stuttering and jitter that didn’t exist in XSX also emerged. It doesn’t look like the most graphically beautiful and stable version of the release.

Try a new install - i didnt have never a CTD inflight or on taxi.

Huge crash with Quick Resume. With live everything on (except weather) on a flight from somewhere to Four Corners airport in the Cessna 152. I paused and logged out of the Xbox. Tried to Quick Resume hours later, the game crashed to desktop and restarted with the first time setup dialogs (with the dude narrating). When I got back to the game’s main menu, I had lost my flight and my flight logbook and training flights but kept the grades I had earned. It also kept my custom controller settings. Extra FYI – the game may have been downloading a world update during the flight. This was on the latest version on 8/7/21 so you should be able to get the version number from that.

If the game cant play nice with Quick Resume, please make that known in game and block the system from trying to do it.


Please include a global invert Y axis for the camera. Daunting to do with binding management.

I suggest you do a lot of controller settings testing with used controllers; especially controllers used by shooter/racing players. All Xbox controllers drift and especially these.

The in menu mouse centric controls are clunky for controllers. We’re accustomed to D pad and bumper based navigation. And when you only have one option on screen, it seems weird to have to move a mouse pointer to get to it. It should be there by default. Post tutorial screens come to mind.

That Cessna 152 needs dashboard backlights. Its got every other light. Even Yugos have them

Need an option to turn live weather on by default, not have to remember it. Or I missed something, which is easy in this game.

Yes I mentioned this in my linked thread about how HDR is broken in Flight sim. Vincent Teoh from HDTVtest (YouTube) did an amazing analysis on it, where he explains the issue better.

They either need to add in game HDR sliders for min/max luminance levels, or take the information provided by the HDR game calibration app.
