MSFS – Development Update March 14, 2024

2 days ago there was the Developers Livestream on Twitch. Here are the following highlights:

  • Sim Update 15 has a target release date of March 26. As always, we want to ship a quality product, so there is a chance this date could be slightly delayed if SU_15 isn’t ready for release by that date.
  • The new Airbus A320 from developer iniBuilds will be included with SU_15! This complex airliner will be free to all simmers on both PC & Xbox.
    • Cameron MacMillan from iniBuilds did a live showcase of some of the exciting new features coming with this aircraft.
  • The next City Update will be for the region of Southern Germany and will include the following:
    • Mannheim
    • Heidelberg
    • Karlsruhe
    • Stuttgart
    • Esslingen
    • Kehl
    • Strasbourg
    • EDNY (Friedrichshafen Airport)
  • The next Local Legend will be an unconventional VTOL cargo plane from Germany, the Dornier Do 31! Only three test prototypes of this aircraft were ever built, and we’re thrilled to digitally preserve this unique plane in Microsoft Flight Simulator!

In addition to announcing these new content updates, the panel also answered many questions from the community, both those that were submitted in advance and those that were asked live from Twitch chat during the stream. If you missed the session, you can watch the complete replay on YouTube here (1 hour and 30 minutes, so grab a cup of coffee or something else):
