    Default SU5 Hotfix 2 due Friday 6th or Monday 9th

    The announcement has been made on flightsimulator.com:

    https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t...-hotfix/436063

    "Thank you for your comments over the last 7 days with the recent Sim Update 5 release. We have seen and read from the core simming community and recognize there is some feedback that needs to be addressed. We have spent the past several days looking over it, reviewing, exploring the details and immediately started working on fixes.

    As a result, a hotfix is coming in the next few days (target is Friday but could move to Monday) to address some of the issues as soon as possible. Here is a summary of the hottest topics we have seen in the forums.

    Volumetric Lighting is Missing – This was a shader bug and will be addressed in the upcoming hotfix.

    LOD Popping and Stutter when Camera Panning – PC Simmers with graphics set to Ultra will experience this when panning the camera around very quickly. We are working on a new option that will allow you to customize how much off-screen scenery will be cached. We are aiming for this to be released on August 24th (World Update 6).

    Low Resolution Ground Texture – This is a bug introduced when we fixed tree draw distance from high latitudes and will be addressed in the upcoming hotfix.

    CTDs – We are currently investigating and are planning on several fixes for World Update 6.

    Washed out Graphics and Cloud Appearance – Attempted improvements to the cloud appearance introduced an overexposure of the world. This will be addressed in the upcoming hotfix. We are planning on a brightness slider for an upcoming Sim Update to allow visual customization of your sim.

    Aerosoft CRJ – We have found and fixed a bug in an open-source math library that is part of Web Assembly [wasi-libc] which was part of the CRJ and has been resolved. A new package will be made available in the next few days.

    ATC Incorrect Altitude – The pressure altitude has been brought in line with the new altimeter simulation and ATC should no longer ask you to get to your current altitude if you’re already there. This is addressed in the hotfix. Further improvements to the altimeter and ambient pressure system will be coming in World Update 6.

    Temperature Spikes – The previous hotfix did not fix all cases of the issue. This is being addressed in the upcoming hotfix.

    This is not an exclusive list - we are investigating all the issues that have been communicated and we will give updates in the Feedback Snapshot on August 12. We acknowledge and apologize for the gap in our communication. Thank you again for your continued support and patience!"

    so CTDs to continue through world update 6.....that's real encouraging. Seems a few things they are making us wait until update 6. I'm starting to loose faith in Asobo as well. Not to the point to leave to go to another sim, but they're development skills are a complete disaster. I say Microsoft Fire them and have a developer take over that knows what its doing.

    Just pay attention to what your Beta testers say and actually listen to them before releasing another broken Hotfix. I can't believe no one noticed half the errors in Performance Update 5 before it was released.

    I hope Asobo work out what killed the Aerosoft Simple Traffic add-on project. It looked really promising there for a while.

    At least Asobo is responding and trying to fix things. Some developers would tell you to pound sand.

    I'm thinking Microsoft should do that to Asobo, and get someone capable of developing a true flight sim again.

    This MSFS is really hard to figure out. A few days ago I tried launching it and it wouldn't launch, Instead I get some message about having to install some mandatory update at the Microsoft store.

    I click OK and it takes me to the store but I have no idea where this update is. Then they start talking about some hot-fix, No idea where to find that either, So decide to say to H---l with it.

    Tonight I'm going to get my son to help me so I launch the game to show him what happens, Now it automatically starts installing some kind of update. No idea what it is. But seems to download and install all by itself, and will wonders never cease, Now the game is working fine again. Have launched it about 3 or 4 times and seems to work ok. Can anyone explain what is happening with this stupid thing?

    Even if they don’t get things right at first, Asobo are certainly working hard to correct things. Ok, they may break a couple of other things in the process but it’s good to know they are doing something about it.

    I hope the fix is out on Friday, not that I’m really having any problems since the last hotfix, but it’ll be interesting to see whet they’ve done.

    Regards

    I'm really concerned about this new hotfix.

    I've been checking one by one all my add-ons after last week's tsunami, have discarded some forever and some temporarily until they're updated, and re-instated the rest.

    Now I'm shaking just thinking about a new hotfix, in case all that work may become useless.

    All in all, this concept of "on-line sim" is proving exhausting, and I'm not sure anymore if I'll hold out for much longer.
