      Could we please be told up front the required storage size for download and installation of updates? Some of us are facing limited drive space.

      And could they tell us in advance what might be the effect on previously installed freeware and payware Aussie scenery and airports?

      These massive updates are ridiculous. And Mac6737 who knows what the new update will affect. Every new update fixes a few things and breaks others. The only thing I guess is to try after the update and see what happens. Developers are having to fix things after new updates.

      LOL, You think they would have used a better livery

      I think I'm going to enjoy exploring Australia in a Qantas Link Longitude for a while

      For those who don't know, make sure you add the free Australia update in the Content Manager.

      You have to go into the Market Place, download, and install it before you will see it in simulator. The large downloads before that are for the launcher and sim architecture fixes. After that you have to get the optional scenery pack to get the scenery in world.

      Yeah, I got there in the end.. I was confused thinking the store update was the core update and the sim update being the world 7 update..... It never occurred to me at the time to look in Marketplace.....

      Susi Air is the one we use in PNG flights and is, IMO, the best repaint

      What a deception. More than 12 days without being able to use MSFS. After SU7 it gets stuck in "searching for updates". I´ve tried every possible solution (community, Zendesk, Xbox, etc.) to no avail.

      when this happens I find it best to reinstall... it saves a lot of headaches and time in the long run.. I have done a reinstall overnight whilst sleeping....

      Did you first update from the MS Store or Steam?
