Performance Improvements

  • Enhanced frame rates for flights repeatedly in and out of a common area. Frame rate drops have been corrected due to Autogen scenery behavior and memory allocation.
  • Addressed product stability issues due to changes of season in particular airport environments. Users will experience stable and consistent behavior when changing the time and season across any of the airports at any level of scenery detail.
  • Addressed additional product stability issues in areas tied to different features throughout the product.
  • Addressed issues with configuration file updates to make sure all option changes are reflected during subsequent launches.
  • Increased support from 76 meter to 19 meter elevation data in Flight Simulator 2004.

Rollout

The update will be released across the five localized language offerings for English, German, French, Spanish, and Japanese editions. The update will be available on the Microsoft Flight Simulator Insider web site - Microsoft Flight Simulator website and is currently scheduled to be available at the beginning of October 2004.
