MSFS After SU5 - Technical Information

Recommended Posts

Discovered today an interesting topic about the development of MSFS and Sim Update 5, that certainly helps to understand better what is going on behind the scene:

He's not.

In fact as far as we know, with SU5 Asobo improved the performance by:

  • moving the glass cockpit refresh job out of the main thread. If you remember when we tweaked the js file to reduce the refresh rate to 1/2 or 1/3 of the framerate, with the airliners we gained 15-20 fps out of 35-45! Removing it completely must have caused an increase of about 25-30 fps alone and in my opinion it was responsible for most of the performance increase. 
  • limiting the loading of the assets to pilot FOV (which caused pop-in when panning, fortunately given as an option after SU5 hotfixes).

I don't see what these changes may have to do with making multimonitor support, VR "expansion" (?), Top Gun possible... pure speculation.

He speaks a bit about himself at the end of his post. He’s not part of Asobo or MS.
