Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 finally came out, and was quite the marvel. The game say widespread critical acclaim, in no small part due to the game’s incredible technical achievement. But, unfortunately, like a lot of things on the cutting edge of its respective technology, there were also more than a few issues. Microsoft even compiled a list of them with known workarounds they will update, and you can see that here. But the game is setting up for its first major official patch soon, and we got the notes ahead of time.

We don’t know exactly when the patch will drop, only that it will be next week. It’ll tackle a variety of issues, such as stability issues that have lead to crashes, the installation process being blocked, no longer downloading deleted content, issues with Simconnect, proper currency display, and a host of others. You can read the full notes through here or see them below.
