Microsoft Flight Simulator Patch Two Expected 'Within the Next 10 Days'

September 11, 2020

The weekly Microsoft Flight Simulator development update made its latest appearance yesterday on Flight Simulator's official website with brief details of the second patch.

The team expect to have the update available within the next ten days assuming no major last-minute bugs crop up, and has been stated to be in final testing and is being prepped for release.

A full list of patch notes will only be released with the patch, though an outline of what to expect was given.

  • Performance improvements
  • ATC updates
  • UI updates
  • Aerodynamic updates
  • Aircraft updates
  • Cockpit visuals and animation updates
  • General aviation system updates
  • General aviation avionic updated
  • Airliner system updates
  • Airliner avionic updates
  • Live Weather updates – (e.g. 225/3kt wind fixed, persistency fixed, etc.)
  • Upgraded multiplayer servers
  • Marketplace updates
  • Content Manager updates
  • Localization updates
  • Accessibility updates
  • Camera updates
  • Bush Trip updates (e.g. completion trigger fixed/Completionist achievement fixed)

Another list, this time of popular issues in the current version of the simulator, was also provided, with top items concerning weather and wind.

Additionally, more videos dedicated to Partnership Series, Feature Discovery Series, and Around the World Series are in the works "despite hitting a few delays". More information will be offered in next week's update.

A highlight of all the new and updated products in the Marketplace also made its way into the update, though judging by a quickly growing catalogue of products, this could eventually dominate development updates.
