Asobo Studio has released Microsoft Flight Simulator Update 10 following a delay. The patch promises to make a number of improvements to DirectX 12 compatibility, adds DLSS support, a new cloud layer system, and more. Check out the updated features in update 10 (ver.184.108.40.206) below. 220.127.116.11) below.
- DX12 has received numerous improvements to stability, performance, memory usage, and other areas. We continue to work on the feature. Please note that the new memory allocator DX12 for PC will only be activated by Nvidia graphic card owners once the next driver is released (will improve performance). Other graphic cards have already benefited from the new allocator.
- DirectX 12 support has been developed. It can show performance and GPU utilization regressions in comparison to DirectX 11. High GPU memory consumption can cause the simulator to oversubscribe memory, which can adversely impact performance. This can be avoided in DX12.
- Nvidia DLSS is now an anti-aliasing, upscaling option for PC.
- To expand your field of vision, you can add secondary windows to the left and right of your main window. This is especially useful when you have multiple monitors. This option is available via the Experimental menu in game.
- We created a new cloud layer system which will provide more vertical precision for low altitudes. This will allow us to better reflect cloud thickness and altitudes close to ground.
- We made several improvements to the bush trip activities. These included save system improvements (cross platform/cloud saving + autosave at last waypoint/poi), overall progression systems improvements, and making sure we refuel upon each leg.
- The VFR map has been updated to incorporate a variety of new quality features thanks to Working Title, as well to make it compatible with the G1000NXi external flight plan system.
- The default G1000 NXi in the simulator is now the G1000 NXi. This adds many features to G1000 NXi, bringing it closer to the real NXi units, such as VNAV, procedure turn, holds, arc legs and visual approaches, accurate autopilot/modes and full RNAV.
- Important G1000NXi Note: While the G1000NXi will now display default in SU10 it will not display in sim aircraft with the G1000. To enable the G1000NXi in third-party G1000-equipped aircraft please install and/or upgrade the G1000NXi version available from the Marketplace.
- New key mapping options are available for the taxi navigation ribbon visual assists and the display multi-player nameplates.
- All in-game moving boats now have a wake effect for PC. You should note that not all boats move in this world.
- The Experimental option menu in the game now offers low power mode for PC users. This menu now displays a blurred picture instead of the hangar in background. Other options and behaviors are available to reduce the sim’s power consumption: you can enable VSync, framerate is limited to 20FPS when you minimize the window, and it’s divided by 2 when you launch a download.
- So that the aircraft’s behavior can be modified, the encryption of cfg files has been removed for premium and deluxe airplanes.
- The Experimental option menu in the game allows you to order new packages. The content.xml file has been modified to make it more efficient. This could affect the behavior of add-ons that were written directly in this file. Details about the changes can be found on DevSupport’s homepage here 50.
- Spotlight Event: A new landing challenge is available. This one features the Cessna Citation CJ4 landing at Entebbe International Airport, Uganda. This challenge requires ILS to land successfully due to the low cloud coverage.
Microsoft Flight Simulator Update 10 also contains a long list fixes and minor tweaks. The full patch notes are available for those who want to learn more. right here.
Microsoft Flight Simulator now available on PC and Xbox Series X/S. The game’s next big World Update, which will focus on adding Canadian landmarks and handcrafted airports, will arrive on September 28.
