    Latest Sim Update Breaks DC Designs Concorde

    Dear Asobo Studios: Thank you for breaking our airplanes, for the third time, with Sim Updates. We will now once again cease production while we try to understand what you have broken, how to fix it, then get everything updated for our customers (again).

    That is all. Concorde is effectively grounded until it can be fixed and updated. Apologies to all.

    ETA: CodenameJack has narrowed the issue down to the new Asobo fuel_system. Yes folks, a year and a half since launch, and they're still changing things as crucial to airplanes as fuel - this bug was reported during the beta by users, and yet SU9 was released anyway without the bug being fixed. Do we now fix it our end? Will Asobo issue a patch? Will the patch then break our fix? The beta system is of absolutely no use if Asobo do not act on crucial issues such as these *before* going live with their updates.

    The fighter jets (F-14, F-15 and F-15) and PT-17 Stearman are still on the older fuel system, so appear unaffected at this time.

      I get it, and I sympathize. So sorry you have to deal with this. Looking forward to putting my Concorde in the air again, but I can wait until it can get at its kerosene again Thanks for an amazing aircraft.

      If you wanted to see a living, breathing, example of the maxim 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' then look no further than Asobo. I hope that their developers get nowhere near 'real life' software systems.

      Did Asobo not have a beta available for developers?

      I was a beta tester for the flightsim. If they didn't listen to us, do you think they'd really help Developers?

      Asobo can't force developers to test their products on the updates. It seems that it has happened before which should suggest that DC test released products on upcoming SUs.

      Dear DC Designs: You've got it wrong. Asobo didn't break your airplane. You failed to build an airplane that didn't break. Other developers manage to do it. The sim is constantly improving on what was from Day 1 mind-blowing, jaw-dropping and gob-smacking, but it wasn't built for the benefit of 3rd party devs. Get with the program. I love the Stearman but maybe you're just not up to the challenge.

      Are there fixes that could be made for FSX?
