Microsoft Flight Simulator had a pretty impressive launch, and only continues to improve. The game just received an update that adds some nice features, however, there is no new content for players to enjoy. Be sure to download the update before starting to play. Developer Asobo Studios also recommends that players move their ‘community packages’ to another folder before launching the game.

Update 6 improves the Navblue data. The navigation data date can now be set dynamically. The ATC window will now list the entire name of approaches. There will be no more lightning when skies are clear and some plane instruments have been fixed when playing with the Metric system. The developers also added a new AA setting called Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TAA), along with AMD FidelityFX CAS (a new sharpen filter).
