MICROSOFT FLIGHT SIMULATOR HAS LOST MORE THAN 80 GIGABYTES WITH THE LATEST PATCH

Microsoft Flight Simulator  is a very chubby game: it used to require over 170 gigabytes of free space for a basic installation. Now the developers have applied some kind of developer magic and reduced the size of the files by about half.

The optimization was carried out within the framework of patch 1.16.2.0, which is called Sim Update IV . How they managed to reduce the size is not specified – it is only known that the game launcher now actually downloads about 85 gigabytes of archives instead of 170.

Other changes in the patch include:

  • Improved air traffic performance based on real data.
  • Improved snow tracking accuracy based on live data.
  • The flight model of the flaps, stall, wing and fuselage has been updated.
  • Improved performance of turboprop engines.
  • Added visual effects editor.
  • Added documentation with tips for optimizing content for the Xbox Series (useful for third-party developers who release add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator ).
  • Fixed various bugs, including in the editors.

A complete list of changes to Sim Update IV is available on the  official website .
