    Default New FSX Steam Edition Beta Release

    Microsoft has pushed out a new beat release of FSX Steam Edition. The primary change is adding telemetry to support their development of the new sim. There are, however, additional bug fixes and updates, including the reintegration of live weather. See the link below for the full release notes.

    This is more exciting than the new sim for me! lol
    I hope they do more with it in the future than look to obtain usage data. I doubt it but I'll live in hope.

    Live weather is back, and actually accurate.

    And it gets weirder. Went back to the normal files, but it seems that there has been massive climate change on FlightSim World. Taking off over Mobile Bay and the bay is gone. There is no bay, no Gulf, no lakes, no rivers. I validated the Steam files and restarted. Nuthin! Restarted the computer. Nuthin!
    What can cause all water to disappear?

    Take a read of the comments from the link, lots and lots of problems with it atm.
    Can't wait to see what the new MSFS will be like if they can't manage to fix a couple of minor things without screwing everything up. lol

    Yep. I got excited and ran in without checking it out. I trusted that it had been checked.
    Won't do that again!

    Deactivated all my added sceneries and Ultimate Terrain and GEX. Added em all back one at a time and Mobile Bay has filled back up. Seems back to normal. More test flights will be done tomorrow to ensure that everything still works.

    HHHMMM Will keep this in mind if Microsoft pushes out a "Update" for the boxed edition.

    Loki should lock this thread before it does anymore harm.

    Then it'll be just like AVSIM!
    A Board of Directors determining what information FS users should have access too! lol

    No problems here with a fresh install (in D: HDD), I don't use FSX.
    The internal antialiasing works without Nvidia inspector and getting +100 fps.
    The weather engine runs very, very fast.
    Looks like MS boys are working and solving past mistakes

    That appears to be the key. As long as you do a FRESH install. Reading the comments at Steam forum, if you all ready have add-ons (who doesn't), is when the problems start.

    From Steam forum...

    On an existing installation, only crash.
    it would have been good if they had given me notice..
