12

Microsoft has presented their latest development update for the recently released Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The Microsoft team has news for the community about a patch that will fix problematic issues that customers have been experiencing. Furthermore, users have experienced issues such as crashes during the installation process of the new sim, so the team has implemented a fix that should reduce those problems. In addition, the new patch should take care of stability issues as well.

Simconnect will now have better performance. The user will no longer experience an FPS drop while using the Simconnect API. In addition, titles that had been deleted from the content manager were automatically reinstalling. This issue is now fixed. Furthermore, the correct currency is properly updated when making a purchase through the marketplace.
