Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update 6 (Germany, Switzerland & Austria) Delayed to September 7

Today Microsoft announced with a development update that the upcoming World Update 6 for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been delayed.

Today Microsoft and Asobo Studio announced with a development update that the upcoming World Update 6 for Microsoft Flight Simulator, which was scheduled for late August, has been delayed.

The delay (decided to ensure a “high level of quality”) won’t be long, as the update will launch on September 7, improving Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.

On top of that, a lot of improvements and fixes will also be included. Among those, we can expect the following. It’s worth mentioning that this isn’t the full patch notes, and more is coming.

STABILITY
-Several crashes have been fixed across the title

NAVIGATION
-Fixed ATC radar altitude so the ATC no longer asks you to change your altitude when it is not applicable -The VFR Map now displays information for latitudes beyond 75 degrees -New AIRAC cycle 2108 is now available

ACTIVITY
-Fixed crash in autosave in bushtrip missions when the user has a non-ASCII name

PLANES
-SR22 performance and fuel consumption has been modified to better match POH -Gyro Drift is now correctly set when Aircraft Systems assistance preset is set to Easy / Medium / Hard

WORLD
-“Offscreen terrain pre caching” graphics settings has been added (Low, Medium, High and Ultra). If set to Ultra, all the offscreen terrain will be cached at full quality which will reduce FPS drops and LOD popping when panning the camera but may impact overall performance -Maximum photogrammetry draw distance has been further increased. As a result, photogrammetry of downtown building areas will be visible from farther away -Cities at night are now more visible on the World map

VR
-The title no longer crashes when quitting the sim in VR -Various tutorial fixes: briefs and debriefs are properly displayed, players can complete all the objectives in VR now

SDK
-Fixed group displaying issue in the scenery editor -Projected Mesh not rendered when moving camera or adding new one in the Scenery editor (we force the loading of LOD 0) -Improved some text rendering for XML gauges -Plane debug screens now correctly calculate and display GPH/gallon per hour fuel consumptions (DebugAircraftEngines & DebugAircraftTracking)

Recently, we published our brand new and massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, focusing on the Xbox version and short and long-term plans for the sim (on both platforms).
