    IndiaFoxtEcho Project Updates And Sim Update V Compatibility Statement
    ,/p>

    Yesterday we have received a notification from Microsoft that the upcoming Sim Update V will not be completely compatible with XML legacy code at launch: although many commands are supported, some are not and this created quite a big problem for us.

    While the change is, in some sense, for the better for the platform (Sim Update V performance is way better than the previous versions), a number of third party aircraft may not work as intended or crash the sim.

    This is the status of our projects at the moment:

    LONG-EZ: the current version should be fully compatible with SUV at launch. We plan to release a small update to embrace the new cockpit interaction model.

    MB-339: should work fine with SUV, although some displays will look too bright at night. An update will be released soon which will bring a number of small improvements, including a fix the fuel consumption issues and a draft smoke system implementation.

    T-45C GOSHAWK: BAD NEWS: while most of the aircraft works in SUV, the HUD does not - basically making the plane unflyable from the cockpit. We are working on a quick fix creating a HTML5-based HUD which will work as a temporary solution - it will have limited functionality, but at least the plane will be flyable.

    Unfortunately, this problem affects also the development of the M-346 and the F-35, which will suffer significant delays.

    The SU-31 on the other hand is fine, and test will proceed as soon as SUV is released.

      So bad ports from obsolete sims break under SU 5. Got it. Glad I didn't buy any of your products and have only purchased proper MSFS aircraft from PMDG and Asobo.

      MB-339 was made for DCS, hardly an obsolete sim but, when the software publisher makes big changes in the way it implements certain aspects that is hardly the fault of 3rd party developers. As for PMDG they don't have any planes that would be affected by this and it is a very recent release, and they only have ONE plane on the sim, so that is not a good sample size and Asobo hasn't really made any new planes other than the ones released with the sim, so I don't know how you've purchased more from them, and all of the planes I own from MSFS are 3rd party planes and none of them are made by either PMDG or Asobo, so you have a pretty narrow mindset as to what to expect from 3rd party developers that can only fix things after Asobo breaks them. So, when looked at your whole argument is ridiculous at best and seems to just be a tantrum because you don't like that something got broken.

      Totally agree. Once more MS released a product still in the assembly line.

      I'm very disappointed to hear this news re the T-45C. That said, the only thing that any flight simmer has to say to Dino Cattaneo (IndiaFoxTecho) is "THANK YOU".
