Live weather seems to be fixed, this is the first time I start in a storm (after using the precipitation filter to choose the starting location) using live weather.
LOAD "*",8,1Four minutes from pressing a key to getting the main menu. A little over a minute to load a flight.
Never timed it before, so no idea how much faster if at all it is, but I hope they keep working on speeding these load times up...
Icing and other weather effects were working for me as intended, wind was however almost 225/3.Now that live weather is finally working, and spectacular harsh weathers are now much more common, it's time for me to start avoiding choosing airplanes without de-icing systems when flying in Kamchatka and very cold places in general...
While the effect is undoubtly cool (and potentially catastrophic), I feel that the speed at which the airplane turns into a Cornetto once you fly through a cloud in cold weather might be a tad overdone... Regardless of that, playing with live weather now produces amazingly gorgeous visual results.
Just learned that an airport can refuse you VFR landing if the weather conditions are bad (in this case was heavy fog), only allowed IFR. This game keeps getting richer and richer
Mine didn't crash, but it did spent quite a while re-downloading the same things over and over and over again, then resetting itself back a bit. Took much longer than it needed to I think. It's patched, but didn't have time to play last night... hopefully get a bit of time over the weekend to play.It's going to take me even longer to update this sim if the updater keeps crashing and losing all my download progress......
I learned the hard way that I pretty much need to dedicate my computer to the download process and not use it for anything else while it's happening. In fact, I probably should close this browser!Mine didn't crash, but it did spent quite a while re-downloading the same things over and over and over again, then resetting itself back a bit.

I'm currently downloading and am past that already... although having said that, I have the Super Duper Deluxe version and my download size is 15GB... so maybe I'm still behind you... so far it's been going ok-ish, 3GB in about 10-15 minutes.Is this normal? It's been stuck at 16% and apparently isn't actually downloading anything based on bandwidth use.. Do I have to restart this process AGAIN?
Don't think it matters much, although I had mixed experiences with the MS store (for the Forza games I own I had no other choice, other than that I prefer Steam all the way).Is there any concensus on whether Steam or MS or other (?) is the best platform for buying and owning the game and getting updates? Or does it not matter?
I've still not got the game and think I may give it another couple of patches before I do.
Doesn't matter for updates. Steam is nearly always preferable because the download servers FLY, but the game itself is only about 1GB so patches to that are very small. The rest of the updating / download (i.e. the majority of it) happens in-game using Microsoft's rather flaky update system.Is there any concensus on whether Steam or MS or other (?) is the best platform for buying and owning the game and getting updates?
