News on FSX Service Pack 1
Phil Taylor reports that work on FSX SP1 is 85-90% completed, then it’s off to extensive testing. So it’ll be a while before we’ll see this. Phil states that some broken third party addons from FS9 will benefit from some fixes, and provides some screenshots (although as of this writing some of the links are broken). I’m pleased to see from the screenshots that a dusk rendering bug that left the ground textures at dusk dark and bland has been fixed. However it doesn’t look like the bug that causes building textures during dusk to be dingy has been addressed.
Dusk was very impressive in FS9 and looks like a power failure in FSX as it stands, so this is good news.
