Guess again! 😂 DX12U release window is '2021' that's all we know. Microsoft removed 'Summer 2021' from the release window for this update many months ago.

We’re all saying DX12U but have they confirmed it is Ultimate and not just vanilla DX12?

I believe Xbox Series X uses DX12U, so perhaps people are extrapolating from that.

Yes, like the release of the Top Rudder 103 ultralight plane. 🙄😆

Different people within the team, and also a prerogative for their actual business (making an add-on to sell), versus adding free post-release stuff people want.

In terms of the team(s) working on implementing new features or fixing/enhancing existing ones, I'm guessing seasons were pushed back in favour of other priorities - but the business side of things doesn't just stop in the meantime.

Heard that excuse before. Won’t get in to it any further. I’m sure others will....

Seasons might have turned out to be more difficult than they thought initially. Asobo certainly made some stabs into that field but may have ran into obstacles.

And Jörg has set ambitious goal poasts. He mentioned early on that seasons is more than just changing foliage and colour correcting images. He was also talking about stuff like wet and dry periods and even stuff like bird migrations.

The low level lighting didn't need changing.

I disagree strongly.

There were huge patches, for example in desert countries like Bahrain where the desert was basically glowing in the dark, as if there was some huge spotlight being turned on somewhere.

As I recall it was Wloch who said that and not Neuman, and believe me, the mindset of a French engineer and  the one from an American game producer without technical background  are far, far apart 😄.  As we can see in the implementation (or lack thereof) of some of the goal posts which were publicized in 2019.

The bird migrations thing (and hibernating bears ! ) was a little tongue-in-cheek. At least I hope.

But it is reasonable to think that changing seasons for whole planet imagery is a daunting task, worth a specific DLC. I lived in places for instance where winter had an almost  continuous overcast and snow, some others where there was snow but we had some sun, some  where it was dry, sunny and the trees were blooming, some very dry with sand winds etc etc.

Well you can disagree as strongly as you like obviously, but I think you are disagreeing with the wrong thing.  The glowing effect obviously needed changing, but I am on about the low level lighting in towns and cities etc. the point light sources (roads etc.), not the glowing effect.

So on the ATC phraseology item, what does “Matches FAA” mean? Are they saying what they already have matches FAA phraseology or that they would like to make it match FAA?

Status - Matches FAA

Release - SU4

It means this specific feature will come with the Sim Update 4, aimed to be released later this month.

I guess we will see Xbox release in June with DX12U update for pc coming in July with Sim Update 5.

The SDK Q&A implied PC would get DX12 before Xbox, or at least it would get it first for testing
