Microsoft Flight Simulator Patch Released

Following on from the huge Sim Update 5 release earlier this week, Microsoft and Asobo Studio has released a new patch for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The new patch addresses a number of problems that arose following the release of version 1.18.13.0 that was released earlier this week.

The new patch sees a number of changes to the stability and performance of the simulator, including various crash to desktop issues, minor memory leaks and also crashes relating to the offline AI traffic. Furthermore, some changes to the navigation have been made such as the flightplanner not resetting and also some occasional freezing being fixed. Other minor changes include a fix to the weather having temperature spikes at high altitudes, improved UI elements when using the in-game cursor and the fact that the sim should no longer freeze when you connect/disconnect a peripheral.

The patch is now available for both PC and Xbox Series X|S users. To get it, simply boot up your simulator and start the download and installation process. Remember, you may want to temporarily rename your Community Folder to get ensure compatibility and no issues whilst you update.

You can read all about Sim Update V in our previous post. We’ll have a review for the Xbox Series X|S version of the simulator very soon.
