Third-party developers had new Microsoft Flight Simulator add-on assets and a release to share today, while Microsoft launched a new update.

We start with the update, which is designed to correct some of the outstanding issues left by Sim Update 9.

The download is a simple ~350 MB download on the Windows Store or Steam (or on Xbox, of course), with no follow-up once you launch the game. It’s numbered 1.25.9.0 and includes the following

  • Fixed various crashes on the world map
  • Fixed crashes affecting airports that have a beacon but no runway (BIKF for example)
  • Fixed simobject data request creation process preventing Flight sim gear peripherals from working
  • Fixed a crash in vector placement during back to main menu
  • Fixed LOD streaming in vector placement in the Scenery editor
  • Fixed windshield flickering when the render scale is not set to 100%
  • Fixed CGL updating loading order to ensure custom CGL files are loaded correctly
  • Fixed ATC Azure TTS goes silent while in gameplay
  • Fixed crashes about SimConnect message reception after being closed in WASM

Next, we get a single but juicy screenshot of the  McDonnell Douglas DC-10/KC-10 Extender by Aero Dynamics, showing one of the engines.

The aircraft is going to be freeware, and you can follow its development on the developer’s Discord server.
