We can’t wait to answer your questions!

    And of course, click here for some basic FAQ questions that we’ve already answered about the Xbox launch.

    We hope you are enjoying World Update V: Nordics that launched earlier today and we look forward to your feedback!

    SDK Update

    • General
      • The new SDK DevSupport platform is live! Create your account on https://devsupport.flightsimulator.com, make sure to take a look at the guidelines, and then you can start exploring all the ideas & answers shared by the community! This space is 100% dedicated to the SDK, so no other topics will be discussed here.
    • Dev Mode
      • General
        • On the new release note window, we fixed the “Download” button which wasn’t displayed as the icon was missing from the package.
      • In the Project Editor:
        • We now prevent generated airport package names from containing illegal characters.
        • We’re making some changes on the different wizards so that they will define the package’s name after the definition of the assets (ie: after choosing an ICAO for an airport).
      • In the Scenery Editor:
        • We now allow the use of SceneryStatistics even when no project is loaded.
      • In the FX Editor:
        • We fixed crashes on the node graph.
        • We fixed the behavior of the BezierCurve, which calculated the curve the wrong way.
        • We fixed a crash that could happen when closing the sim while FX were playing.
        • We now expose the particles color.
