Microsoft Flight Simulator will be updated within the next 10 days addressing a large number of the initial feedback for the simulator since release. The team at both Asobo and Microsoft have continued to listen to feedback from the community and will be releasing the second patch addressing numerous bug reports and other feature requests.
The details of this patch were released as part of the weekly blog update from the team over on FlightSimulator.com. The details were somewhat detailed and highlighted exactly what we can come to expect in the next update, which is due for release within the next 10 days. Highlights from the patch include performance improvements, ATC and UI updates, along with improvements to the aircraft avionics, systems and the cockpit visuals and animations. Based on the initial highlight details, this patch appears to be significantly more extensive than the first patch released earlier this month.
Alongside those improvements, Microsoft has also said that the camera will see some improvements, along with accessibility options. This will accompany changes with the multiplayer servers, live weather and also the included Bush Trips. The highlights are just a fragment of the full patch notes which will release upon the release of the update itself.
Just to be clear, this patch will be made available within the next 10 days and is not out just yet.
Alongside the patch details, a variety of new community screenshots were shared, some of which we have shared also below.
