Update day

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Don`t forget tomorrow is the update Day for WU5 ( if nothing goes wrong ) so cool down your engines .

I'm curious what we get, hopefully no mess, but now we have Beta Testers so looking forward..

Could be getting cold because it`s a nordic update¬†ūü§£

 

cheers¬†ūüėČ

Time to check through the community folder for installed scenery which may bork it. I'm worried about Iceland Overhaul which I've really enjoyed.

I don't think that there has been any closed Beta program for WU5, but I might be wrong.

They didn't do a Beta test for this update (other than the addon developers that get early access).

The one they mentioned 2 weeks ago hasn't started yet, I assume it's for the next Sim Update.

I don't believe I have any addons that touch the Nordics, other than WeLoveVFR and a freeware Helsinki airport.

I'm almost sure the developer will modify the scenery as soon as the update drops. I expect we might get a higher-quality mesh for Iceland and updated satellite imagery, as well as a few buildings here and there with WU5.

Are you sure this will be tomorrow? The development roadmap

https://www.flightsimulator.com/development-roadmap/

states under June 24th: 06/TBA. Usually it dropped the Tuesday before the named Thursday, that would be on 22nd. 

There may have been some announce which I missed, of course.

Kind regards, Michael

How do you guys handle the community folder mods when updating, do you have to reinstall everything, everytime there is update?

I just rename the folder, install the update, delete the newly created one and rename the old one back.

Last week's Development update said the 17th (top of the page)

https://www.flightsimulator.com/june-10th-2021-development-update/

That Roadmap page hasn't been updated since late April.

I have no addons installed in the Community folder. I have all my addons installed in a separate folder and use MSFS AddonsLinker to create symbolic links in the Communityfolder. Before an update of MSFS I just click a button in MSFS AddonsLinker to remove all symbolic links. It's a very fast process.

What exactly do you gain by doing this??¬† It seems to me that you might as well just leave the folder alone.. ūüėČ

I use @Bad_T’s Addon Manager… one click and I have an empty community folder. Then another click and my preset(s) are back.

Works for me.

I leave everything in the community, i didn`t cleaned it for all the past updates and never had a big problem..

If something from the planemods¬†do not work they normally just not loading and have to be updated from the Developer - you can nothing do about that just to hope not to mutch gets broken¬†ūü§Ē

 

But our planemodders are allways fast in update there stuff after a MSFS update which causes problems so i'm not too worried about that.

My routine before updating is to clear out anything in my community folder that may conflict. In this case Iceland Overhaul and any airports/scenery included in the update.
Then update. The delete and rebuild the rolling cache before loading a flight.
