HOW TO PREPARE FOR THIS UPDATE:

  2. Some packages in your community folder may not have been updated and, as a result, may have an unexpected impact on the title’s performance and behavior. Please move your community package(s) to another folder before relaunching the title if you suffer from stability issues or long loading times.
  3. After you download the newest update for Microsoft Flight Simulator, head to the Marketplace to download the free World Update.

We all know that Microsoft Flight Simulator is a strong contender for one of the most realistic games ever made. You get to explore the world, while in the meantime, drive a plane with many other realistic factors set to motion. Now, it’s going to be even more realistic than ever.
