After releasing Patch #1 on September 2nd, the developers of the next-generation Microsoft Flight Simulator, known as Asobo Studio, informed today there is Patch #2 already under testing to be released later this month. While Patch #1 focused mostly on installing and crashing issues, the second update should resolve issues like the Live Weather missing wind conditions in most parts of the Earth. Also, performance stutters near large airports and fine-tuning of ATC radio phraseology are on the list as well as other in-flight improvements to be more specifically noted later next week.
Asobo Studio has also updated the SDK tools for the 3rd party developers. They fixed several issues related to the world editor, in particular linked to custom aerials, projected meshes, airport replacement, and airport editing. Custom add-on airports and POI’s can be displayed in the world map and used when setting up a flight plan. Several awesome 3rd party products are already available in the MFS marketplace, and the next update will add another dozen.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is available as a digital purchase from Microsoft Store and Steam as well as a DVD box from Aerosoft. Prices are for Standard 69.99 EUR, Deluxe 89.99 EUR, and Premium Deluxe 119.99 EUR. Standard Edition is also included in Xbox Game Pass for PC monthly subscription.
