Thread: Sim Update 5 can be downloaded

  1. #26
    Just finished downloading the Sim Update, and there was a further 21+ GB's of updates to be found in the content manager, covering the aircraft from the Deluxe and Premium packages, and various updates to scenery and landing challenges from all of the World Updates.

    For me in total it was: 620Mb+41Gb+7Gb+9Gb, so 4 parts

    I had a chance to look at the new World Map window, and it is really cool to see it all in satellite imagery now, and with towns labeled. I also immediately spotted all of the seaplane bases/airports now added (it warns you too, if you select a seaplane base and you have a land-based/non-float plane selected).

    Exact same thing happened to me, even the same GBs. Downloading faster now so hope to have it soon.

    You get full marks for sheer bravery coming out here to the Outhouse and admitting you're controlling with an X-Box Controller.

    Go straight to the top of the line-up.

    How is it?

    What I want to know is why does the download screen need to thrash the GPU so hard ? My 2080 Ti's fans are running flat out just downloading the update.

    Wow, performance is very nice now! Maybe not like in DX12 P3Dv5 but its a big step forward. Great job for me (for VR)!

    I very like new kind of map in editor:

    Problem. Can't fly anywhere after downloading the 40 GB.


    There was a screen indicating another 22.9 GB to download while the 40 GB was loading or to download in the marketplace I did not take the first option. I could not find what to do in the market place to d/l the 22.9 GB which must be necessary to fly.


    I get the menus to appear to select an option, can select planes and locations to fly from but when I press fly a water scene screen appears and shows locked. No cursor shows at this point.


    Sure could use some help.

    I'm halfway there; - after 3 1/2 hours - at 49% - and most of that is Tutorials - which I don't do.


    This better be bloody worth it.

    Downloaded, updated, commuity folder files installed. But I have encountered an unsolvable problem. I don't know if any of you have seen this yet. As soon as I go to Cockpit camera view, the view starts to float away from center. It is not fixed. Acting like head tracking IR, but without the head tracking. None of the camera settings seem to fix it other than reset position, then it starts floating again. Guess I will also check the MS site on this one. -d

    My biggest pet peeve about MSFS is all the extras that have nothing to do with my installation (787 liveries when I don't even have the premium package) that slow everything down.

    Open the Microsoft Store and click the top-right menu, then select Downloads and Updates. Click the Get Updates button even if you don't see MSFS in the list - it should pop in after a few seconds. Once the core is updated to the new version, the rest will be waiting when you restart the sim.

    I'm currently going through the usual download package looping BS, I've had to restart the Sim half a dozen times so far and I really need to go to bed and I still have about 20 gig to go.
    I'm restarting it again and going to bed and hope it doesn't get stuck again overnight.

    Reading through AVSIM, other folks are having this problem. No solution yet.

    That did it. Im flying off the hammer DL now. Guess T-Mobile/iPhone hotspot loves MSFS2020 lol 500mb/s. That's the best speed I ever got up here on the UT/UHS Helipad Office.

    Don't forget the Content Manager once you're in - I'm currently downloading another 21.46 GB!!!

    Everything i touch with the mouse in the cockpit turns BLUE and I can't change/ dial or alter it. It's like tool tips but it won't let you do anything - just a '?' with a Press to change - but when you do it doesn't.

    I have hundreds of hours real world flying - but this has defeated me.

    wtf.

    p.s; frame rates are off the clock - which is nice.

    Real bumpy install for me as well. Four hours into it and still 10GB to go, not counting content manager. So far, 2 CTDs, 3 loops, a very long pause trying to get a license, and a complete freeze when checked for updates during one of the restarts. Download speeds all across the range for my setup.

    I'm not too surprised though considering all the server traffic. I don't know why they dont break out some the content into optional installations. The tutorials or discovery flights for example, great few newbies but not essential for the core sim.

    Absolutely - the first 20 Gigs - Tutorials - I don't want/ not interested/ will never go there - waste of Planet Earth's resources -
    The last 15 Gigs are the Big Files so they kind of flatten out and will go by quickly. It seems the delays "Please Wait. .. ..." are when MSFS is searching for an "In" to the next file it wants to download - when you get the big files - your speed increases and the whole deal speeds up.

    So, in summary - if you get past half way - you'll be okay.

    Heads up if you're flying fast jets - the Update destroys your Controller settings (It doesn't look like it does - but it does) - so, Brothers of the Outhouse - careful on those ailerons - until you've backed off the sensitivities - back to where they need to be for very fast Post-Mach supersonic stuff.

    Since I run on ultra all the time, it looks to me like the level of detail is less and a lot of the buildings now look like they are right out of FSX. Very strange. Also, what's with the small white dot in the camera view? I have a bad feeling about this update.

    They introduced a new interaction method called "Lock." Go into Settings - General - Accessibility and you'll find the setting there. Change that back to "Legacy."
