Yup, overloaded most likely. Both my 100Mbps link and LTE (which is currently around 90Mbps) is crawling along at piss poor speeds with this update, been downloading +- 1h30m and only at 16% now, so this is going to be an overnight download for me.So when i run a speedtest i get around 80mbs but on the update it shows at 0.50mbs...any reason. Maybe to many connected to update servers ?
Yup, mine is going to be an over night download. I new i should of bought x-plane when they had the special. Got no other games on my pcYup, overloaded most likely.

Also not sure why they say it's a 22GB update, but the actual size it shows on the progress bar is 40GB, weird, but to be expected from Microsoft.
Nearly a year after its PC release, Microsoft Flight Simulator hits cruising altitude on Xbox Series X/S today, where it’s also available via Game Pass.
It’s a staggeringly large game, clocking in at nearly 100GB—and that’s not counting any of the optional “world updates,” which can cause its file size to balloon well beyond that. But you needn’t download the whole thing to get it working on a next-gen Xbox.
Microsoft Flight Simulator comes in two files on Xbox Series X/S, one that includes the game (42.4GB), and one that allows you to play in an offline mode (59.7GB).
You can play the game just fine without that second file, provided you A) have a solid, reliable internet connection and B) don’t have a data cap.
When you first download the game, you’ll get the chance to select, piecemeal, which files you want to put on your console. Or, if you automatically downloaded both and need to remove the latter, just...
Since Microsoft Flight Sim is a next-gen game, you have to store it internally or on the $200 expansion card.
- Go to the “my games and apps” menu.
- Hover over the Microsoft Flight Simulator icon and press the menu button.
- Scroll down to “Manage game and add-ons.”
- Click on the first option that pops up, which should be a line item listing the game’s name, the version you’ve downloaded, and the total number of “game items” you’ve installed.
- You should see two options: one for the game itself, and one for “World - offline mode.” Deselect the latter, then hit “save changes.”
If you’re rocking an Xbox Series S, which sports just 364GB of internal storage capacity (after you account for space earmarked by the operating system and other system-essential files), Flight Sim takes up about a third of your usable disc space.
On Xbox Series X, it takes up an eighth. In either case, that’s not much room for other kaiju-sized games like Destiny 2 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Trimming Flight Sim’s file size in half is nothing to sneeze at.

Flight Sim clocks about 100GB on Xbox, but it can fly just fine at half that sizeView attachment 1115594
Was that you in the C 130?After the update and the loading it could've been less than 10 minutes before I was setting up some changes.
Had a 24 minute flight CPT International down to my house (Blokkies ) and then around Table Mountain and landed at Ysterplaat.
Now I just need to figure out how to invert cockpit camera up and down. It's the worst,without inversion haha.
There's a big Microsoft Flight Simulator PC update, and it's almost as if last year's ground-breaking flight sim PC game is determined not to be overshadowed by the news the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles versions just launched.
Microsoft Flight Simulator remains one of the most graphically demanding PC titles ever.
While gamers’ reactions to highly anticipated games can grow distorted and polarized, the flight sim’s 2020 release elicited memories of the Crysis launch in 2007.
Gamers with medium-to-high-end PCs that can run other modern games on "Ultra" settings reported defaulting to a mere "Medium" on the highly taxing title.
Today’s PC update should help remedy those issues. The patch offers "significant performance improvements to make the experience more seamless," according to developer Asobo.
These tweaks include much better multi-core processor support, memory and GPU usage, and loading times. The patch also reduces stutters significantly.
I haven't bothered yet, as the only reasonable (and still really not enough to play it lekker) piece of kit I have is my work laptop.
And I'm not in the mood to irk our IT guys if they do get to snooping around to see what's loaded on it
27 July can't come soon enough for the console version!
