Microsoft Flight Simulator Patch #6 is now available – A32NX broken?

Microsoft Flight Simulator Patch #6 – version – just launched today. It comes with several patches for navigation, ATC, planes and weather, but nothing really special. Patch #6 adresses various aircraft issues, such as the bank oscillation issue for the A320neo and the overpowered engine of the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner. Navigation data has been updated and the sensitivity curve methodology has been adapted for different inputs. You may read the full changelogs on their blogpost or below.

But of particular importance: Apparently all liveries which were broken with the latest patch #5 can now be selected again. Asobo has finally found a remedy and states “liveries should now be accessible in game and properly loaded”. Since patch #5 it was not possible to load the majority of community liveries in-game. Creators had to update these. Now everything seems to be working again, even without previous applied workaround.

A32NX broken – switch to development build

As with the majority of the updates, the current stable version of the A32NX (0.4.1) is not compatible with today’s MSFS update. However, FlyByWire announced to launch a new stable version soon. Meanwhile, users can download and use the latest development build which indeed already works with patch #6. Download the new A32NX installer and select the Developer build to be installed, which will install it directly into your Community path. Alternatively, you can install the latest Unstable Master Branch Build from GitHub by hand (Direct Link).

Microsoft Flight Simulator Patch #6 is approx. 1,4 GiB in size. It’s recommended to move your community package(s) to another folder before relaunching the title if you suffer from stability issues or long loading times.
