    MSFS January 21st, 2021 Development Update

    World Update 3: United Kingdom And Ireland

    We are hard at work hard on World Update 3 and it is looking great! This massive update contains new aerials, new DEM, over 70 POIs, 5 airports, two landing challenges, and will also introduce 5 brand-new photogrammetry cities for your enjoyment. Unfortunately, these new cities are causing a slight delaya€_ it's a new process and data source for us and the tools have to be updated for these cities to integrate seamlessly into the sim. The Bing Maps team is working hard to make this happen and the data provider, Bluesky, is helping as well. We believe that the remaining issues will be resolved within a few days so we are targeting the release one week later than originally planned. We apologize about the delay, but are convinced that it will be worth the wait a€_ and that a full 3D London is a critical element of this release. Thank you for your patience. Here are a few images of what's to come:

    Feature Discovery Series Ep. #10 - Aerodynamics

    SDK Update

    DevMode:

    • Visual Effects Editor is in an UX/UI refinement phase. The first available effects will be contrails and landing smoke effects. They will be customizable through the editor.
    • We added a new feature to the Scenery editor, which allows users to rename, group and reorder the objects in the Scene list. It comes along with its own documentation if you need any help with this feature.
    • We fixed an issue related to UTF8 encoding in the BGL Compiler.

    WebAssembly:

    • We tweaked our system to avoid hampering module debugging with recurring exceptions.

      Please MSFT and Asobo; don't forget the 'little money' pilots. I can't place joystick nor pedals and fly KB and mouse only. I cannot handle another 100 or more points of air influence on my plane with KB and Mouse only. Please keep or include a simple stable flight model, don't care if it's less authentic or life like. As long as a stable and steady (FSX like) flightmodel remains an option too I will be more than happy to fly my MSFS and enjoy the 'never seen before scenery' I'm 68yrs now, in my younger days I was a solo glider pilot myself, here in Holland with really real turbulence at times, so I've had my share of rocking planes....

      What you are asking for is already available. Legacy Flight model. I have not seen any plans to remove it.

      Can you please get rid of all the tower block imagery. I live in a national park in the UK with stone cottages and farm everywhere, yet you surround me with tower blocks, offices and hotels. Also, please can you place churches into your scenery, they are a big part of vfr flying and the English countryside.
