• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Hi all.

March 22 2022 World Update 8. Take precautions.

If you have the disk space, copy your MSFS Official and Community folders as a backup.
Also, you might want to delay further project development until after a successful update, as updating during the download and installation could cause problems.

If you have participated in the beta, make sure you uninstalled the beta and reinstalled the sim before the update..

Good luck.

SU 8 delayed
In light of recent tragic aviation news, we have made the decision to postpone our release of World Update VIII: Iberia until Thursday, March 24th at 2:00 AM PDT (0900Z). We extend our deepest condolences to those affected by this event.

Thank you,
MSFS Team

September 26, 2023 is a major update for Windows 11, followed by a major update for MSFS September 28, 2023. I suggest a backup for your Official folder in case of a Microsoft disaster...
I use a simple bat file:
Code:
robocopy Official OfficialOLD /s
pause
