What’s in this update?

Getting Maximum Performance

Since the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator, we have seen countless users ask “how do I get the most from my hardware?” We know the pains of having a stuttering simulator or poor frame rates. With just a handful of small tweaks, you can actually see a huge difference in performance even on modest hardware.

This is why version 1.10 of A Guide to Flight Simulator features an in-depth look at how you can get the most out of your hardware.

Furthermore, as we believe that every flight simmer out there should have access to getting the best performance, we are giving away this section completely free!

Finding Animals

Finding animals in the new Flight Simulator is a pretty exciting discovery. However, we have had feedback from customers asking how they can better identify where they are in the simulator. We have included all of this and also which animals are located where.


Did you know there are over 40 achievements in Microsoft Flight Simulator for you to unlock? Find out each one and how to unlock them with A Guide to Flight Simulator.
