Thanks.

Steam will download and install it for you automatically, just run steam. When starting the sim, check on the down right corner, it says the version of the sim, it must say v1.19566.

For anyone on the ropes who is interested in the Community 9 update, I made a quick and dirty clip. I for one am more and more impressed...

Night lighting in general is much more improved.  No more pitch black.  I would really like the taxi and landing light ground illuminations - soon I hope.

Hi ca_metal, Thanks for the info. I got the download ok, I just couldn't find the 9 update in plain language.

Your simulator shows the new version?
You mean you saw no difference in the visuals?
Because if you are looking for the update installer, you won´t find it. Steam just download and install it right after the download finishes, you don´t have to do anything.

Cheers Chris; let us know if this changes - in the meantime a simple manual edit of the configuration files might be ok! ^_^
