Today’s MSFS patch will fix a few of these issues. Check out more details below.


Microsoft Flight Simulator Update 10 Patch Notes – July 8, 2022

  1. Various improvements have been worked on for DX12 around stability, performance and memory usage while we keep working on the feature. KNOWN ISSUE: graphic artifacts prevent you from enjoying the game in VR with DX12 enabled at the moment. We’re investigating this issue. (Forum Thread)
  2. You can now add secondary windows on the left and right sides of your main window, to enlarge your field of view, especially when you use several monitors. This option can be triggered via the Experimental option menu in game. (Forum Thread)
  3. Nvidia DLSS is now available as an anti-aliasing and upscaling option on PC. (Forum Thread)
  4. We implemented a new cloud layer system that will provide more vertical precision at low altitudes to better reflect the various cloud altitudes and thickness close to the ground.
  5. We fixed several systems related to the bush trip activities including save system improvements (cross platform/cloud save + autosave from last waypoint/poi), overall progression system improvements and making sure we refuel after each leg completion. (Forum Thread 1, 2, 3)
  6. The VFR map has been updated to include a number of new quality-of-life features thanks to Working Title, as well as add compatibility for the G1000 NXi external flight plan system.
  7. The G1000 NXi is now the default G1000 in the simulator! This brings a number of features to the G1000, taking it close to the real NXi unit, including: VNAV, procedure turns, holds, arc legs, visual approaches, accurate autopilot/modes, full RNAV, and much, much more. (Forum Thread)
  8. New key mapping options are now available for the taxi and navigation ribbon visual assistances and the display of multiplayer nameplates. (Forum Thread 1, 2)
  9. All in game moving boats now have a wake effect on PC. Note that not all boats are moving in the world. (Forum Thread)
  10. Low power mode is now available for PC users via the Experimental option menu in game. While in the menu, this option now displays a blurred image instead of the hangar in the 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. (Forum Thread)
  11. The encryption of cfg files for premium and deluxe planes as been removed so the behaviour of those aircraft can be modded. (Forum Thread)
  12. A new Spotlight Event landing challenge is available for you to fly, featuring the Cessna Citation CJ4 landing at Entebbe International Airport in Uganda. Due to the low cloud cover, this challenge requires the use of ILS in order to successfully land.
  13. A new package ordering system is also available on PC via the Experimental option menu in game.
  14. We now have an in-game survey link on PC that will help us collect feedback.

Important G1000 NXi Beta Notes: If you would like to test the latest G1000 NXi included with SU10 (which we strongly recommend), you will need to uninstall the G1000 NXi from the Marketplace. During this testing period, with the Marketplace NXi uninstalled, the legacy AS1000 (and not the NXi) will appear in third party planes. We will release an update to the Marketplace package concurrent with the final release of SU10 that will again allow the G1000 NXi to appear in third party planes.

WASM support on Xbox is not available in this build.
