The update addresses mostly installation issues that have been experienced by a number of uses since the game’s release.

On top of that, we also get a couple of fixes to problems causing performance drops and crashes when disconnecting peripherals.

The update is fairly small weighing roughly 333.2 MB.

You can read the full patch notes below.

STABILITY ISSUES

  • The title will no longer crash when different input devices/peripherals are disconnected
  • The title will no longer crash when the TBM 930 package is deleted

INSTALLATION ISSUES

  • The install process will no longer be blocked after a partial decompression of a package
  • The install process will no longer be blocked when a local user account includes non-ASCII characters
  • The install process will no longer be blocked after a failed connection to servers
  • The install process will no longer display an empty onboarding screen under certain conditions
  • The title will download a critical missing/deleted package to access the main menu even if the save data preference is set to offline (when an internet connection is available)

CONTENT MANAGER

  • The title will no longer automatically download packages that have been deleted through the content manager
  • The content manager will no longer get stuck in an infinite loading state when checked offline
  • The Creator name of the packages should now be properly updated

SIMCONNECT

  • Significant FPS drop when using Simconnect should no longer affect the experience

Microsoft Flight Simulator is already available for Windows 10 and Steam. An Xbox version is also planned for the future but has no release date for now.

Just yesterday, we learned that the first patch is expected between the next week or so.

As an added bonus, today the good folks at AviationLads (who often make trailers for third-party addons) created an unofficial trailer for the game, and it’s pretty rad. You can check it out below.

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.
