• MSFS December 3rd, 2020 Development Update

    Microsoft Flight Simulator

    Wow, is it December already? As we all prepare to close out the final chapter of 2020, surely a year for the history books, we look back at the last year and how far we have come and look forward to what the future holds. A future filled with VR, Xbox, the ability to replay your favorite moments among many other additions. In the meantime, the team is nose down, preparing for the final update of the year.

    SDK Update

    DevMode:

    • We're still focusing our efforts on improving the new Visual Effects system performance. The corresponding editor has now reached its first basic functional version.
    • On the Scenery Editor side, the heightmaps edition is now ready and will be available in a future update. Object grouping feature is still WIP.
    • New assets creation system from within the Project Editor is still a work in progress.
    • As a background task, the DevMode team is always working on improving the overall stability of the DevMode, with particular focus on the Project Editor, the Scenery Editor, and the Aircraft Editor. The community’s feedback continues to be helpful to identifying and fixing bugs and thus making the tools better.

    WebAssembly:

    • We are making an effort to lower the iteration time when developing for the platform.
    • New security mechanisms have been implemented and others are being studied to protect WASM modules developed by third parties.
