Developer Asobo has released its latest Sim Update for the magnificent Microsoft Flight Simulator, which among other things brings the long-awaited DLSS support for PC.
Along with DLSS anti-aliasing and upscaling, Asobo says Sim Update 10 should bring improvements to “stability, performance and memory usage” for those using Direct X12 support in Flight Simulator development – although he notes that the new memory allocator will only be activated when Nvidia’s next GPU driver has been released.
Elsewhere in today’s update, moving boats in the world now have a computer wake effect, there’s a new cloud layer system – said to provide “more vertical accuracy at low altitudes to better reflect the varying heights and thicknesses of clouds near the ground” – plus a number of quality-of-life features for Flight Simulator’s VFR map.
Those looking for a complete overview of today’s sim additions and changes should read on Asobo’s extensive Sim Update 10 release notes.
It’s certainly been a busy year for Microsoft Flight Simulator, with Asobo already launching the sim’s free Top Gun expansion and various globe-enhancing world updates throughout 2022. There’s more to come though, with the latest world update, Canada, which is due to arrive later this month, followed by the launch of the massive free 40th Anniversary Edition update – described as an “all-out celebration of the franchise” – this November, featuring gliders, helicopters, the Airbus A310 and more.
