Microsoft itself released a new update that was previously launched in beta prevalently addressing issues with the new Airbus A310 and stability/crashes.

It’s numbered and it’s available for both PC and Xbox. You can read the full patch notes on the official forums.

Just Flight provided new screenshots and a development update of its FS Traffic AI add-on. The developer believes it has “a solid build” with all core features functional both in the simulator and in the external Traffic Control Centre app, and it’s being tested. Going forward, it’s a matter of bug fixing and adding more features.

Animations and effects have been added including contrails and engine efflux, flaps, thrust reversers, and wheel rotation which vary depending on the aircraft’s state.

We also get a handy document with the main features of the add-on.

Orbx also released its latest airport, Lamezia Terme International Airport (LICA) in the extreme south of Italy.

It’s available on the developer’s own store Orbx Direct for $16.40.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
