    Default World Update V has arrived

    MSFS has just prompted me to open the MS Store for a mandatory update.
    The sim itself has downloaded a 5.25GB update.. and now the 3.53gb world update (via the Marketplace)

    Regards
    Steve

    Update worked to me like a charm.
    First part downloaded in 5 min (and virtually didn't take any HD room because most of it must be replacing files), and the world update another 5 min.
    Once again, I didn't move anything from the Community folder and there wasn't any problem.

    Can’t say I had any problems either. When I saw the “empty your community folder” recommendation I thought I might as well. I simply renamed the folder & created a new one., just in case.

    Is it me.. or has the performance improved a little? Flying with the Reverb G2 seems to be a bit smoother, not that I had any issues previously.

    smooth as silk here and NO after effects... I'd bought a 2tb SSD C: drive so did a full reinstall and all working as should... I love the sim now it seems to be very stable this end.... and VR has improved!!!! One very happy customer at long last....... Over the last 5 weeks I've goten to know the sim rather than chasing bugs and not always MSFS but my rig, overclocking the card was the crowning moment, it will now run MSFS in full ultra with no stuttering so no need to upgrade the card at all at this point which is fantastic news!!!!! Happy Landings peeps......

    Yes Steve, they tweaked OpenXR and ho what a difference!!!!!

    Quite a few people on the official forums reported CTD's at or approaching BIIS Ísafjörður airport in Iceland, which is one of the new Landing Challenges - a few couldn't even load the landing challenge without a CTD.
    Turns out that the payware Zinertek and REX airport textures are the problem. Just sayin'.

    No worries here since I don't have any of those, but anyhow I think this is a valuable info.

    As I've been saying lately, I think it's a nonsense to empty the Community folder before every update, but that's not the same as denying that some of your add-ons may become obsolete after such an update. When there's evidence of one such obsolescence (and not before, obviously) you'll have to remove the involved files until updated versions are available.

    In that sense, I think it would be extremely useful to open a thread named "Add-ons known obsolete after update ##" or something of the like, where all that info could be collected. Just an idea.

    The thread itself would become obsolete because most affected add-ons are usually updated within days, and some within hours.
    The best practice is to remove them all before an update, and afterward check each add-on developer's website/discord/fb/twitter for news of any patch or update release due.

    I don’t usually bother with the challenges but thought I’d take a look. No problems here, expect that the area is a bit crowded (as you’d expect)
    I managed a ranking of 996.. eventually LOL
