    New MSFS 2020 Patch In The Works

    Thank you for providing feedback since the release of Sim Update 9! At this time, we are hard at work on a patch that will fix some of the emerging issues we have seen this past week. We are excited to share more details and patch notes soon. We thank you for your patience and help to improve the sim with us every step of the way.

    SDK Update

    Roadmap:

    • Sim Update 10:
      • Terrain & Weather APIs.
      • Aircraft Editor V2.
      • Game rendered in a window in the DevMode.

    General:

    • The team is actively working on several issues & crashes reported after Sim Update 9's launch.
    • We are working on our samples, listing them and evaluating which ones can be improved, revamped, and which new samples should be added to the SDK. If you have an idea what could be improved, please let us know on DevSupport!

    DevMode:

    • We reworked the windows opacity system to make it simpler & more consistent.
    • We fixed an issue on the console that caused items to overlap when the window was resized.
    • Visual Effects Editor:
      • We took some time to clean the code – no new features should be expected on this editor in the short term.
    • Scenery Editor:
      • We fixed the SimObjects incorrect scale that was reported on DevSupport.
      • We removed useless text in the scenery object properties window.
      • We fixed an issue where airports did not load when they were close to an independent projected mesh.
    • WASM:
      • We integrated our new Visual Studio WASM Debugger Extension to the S DK distribution.
    • SimConnect:
      • We fixed the SimObject data request creation process.

      Nothing concerning VR, shameful. Most of what's reported here is not what people have been talking about...

      To be clear I love the dedication of Jorge and the Asobo team and amazed at what they've created. Also pleased they continue to advance the sim but please do something with VR (make it look as clear as 2D and not 800x600 visual quality) and listen to the beta testers.

      I'll miss you folks, but I will NOT miss this 100 Gig simulator! What a stinking mess!

      1. How many VR issues have been reported at the official site?

      2. What about all those VR users who are loving their VR experience? They must not be seeing that low visual quality.

      3. Beta testing can only go on for so long or it would go on forever if every beta tester was listened to. Yes, I've been a part of MS beta teams in the past so I know how it works.

      If you think VR is fully realized in FS at this point compared to other titles I want what your smoking. People are settling plain and simple. SU9 for some made the out the window display worse. This needs to get fixed/addressed and brought up to the same standards as other VR titles on the market. If your going to have VR as an option don't half [email protected]# it. FS2020 is not FSX and I for one don't want to go back to that kind of tweaking to get my VR display marginally clearer only for the bar to change with the next sim update requiring more tweaking. If anything FS2020 has showed us that's not needed and should have never been needed. You have some tweaking the base sim to get VR clearer screwing their base install. This needs to STOP. Fix VR so we can all move on. Get a headset for yourself then you'll see what I'm talking about....

      I can only agree wholeheartedly with Aaron, this sim is dreadful! 2 years development and is still rubbish.
      Constant stutters when landing (regardless of the settings or rig apparently). Fluffy balls of cotton wool for clouds even set on ultra. Camera views disgraceful and unusable, no fly by view, no tower view etc. No AI traffic? Haven't seen a single aircraft yet!
      Can't wait to get X Plane 12 and ditch this awful sim! Update FSX and bring it back, I say.
      Cheers
