    Once again I must ask why.
    I think this is a mantra we've got used to hear on occasion of every update, but it's quite clear that MS updates don't alter the Community folder at all.
    I for one have never emptied my Community folder, and have never experienced a single problem.
    Sure some of the add-ons in the folder may become obsolote after the update, and require ulterior updating in turn, but that will happen regardless of where they're stored.

    Not necessary. Updates have no effect on the Community folder, and files placed in Community have no effect on the basic functioning of MSFS. Community is empty by default, and is used only for add-on files. If you have Add-on Linker, it places only links to files there, in which case there will be no files at all in Community. Either way, there is no need to empty Community before an update.

    When does update 5 hit the servers? It's after midnight of 17 June, here in California, but I don't see it listed when I open the simulator.

    Default Ok but.

    Why is MSFS 2020 seemingly so Eurocentric? Specifically so Central and Northern European centered? What about the rest of us "S...hole" countries? USA, Africa, Middle East.......Canada? Mexico? Not all of us will be strolling around Luxembourg or Austria (do they let foreigners in there anymore? Who knows.) anytime soon. I did like seeing my hometown in Texas moldered well.

    Now that's interesting because a few years ago, following the release of "Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight", I posed this same question the other way round. It looked to me too "Americacentric".

    Maybe something related to where the authors are from? I'd say so...

    In fairness, the first two world updates were Japan and USA. I believe they're going to do various regions in the world as time goes on. Maybe they figured that they'll do Europe now and be done with it.

    The update froze about 187MB into downloading. I pressed PAUSED (still was working), and restarted the PC to begin again. This time I got the endless loop of checking for updates and would never go beyond.

    The trick I learned... go into the main One Store folder and delete all the files that were dated for the day of my freeze up (the newly installed files). Restart PC, restart MSFS and sure enough the install started again without a hitch.
