"real-time" reloading of environment files?

Having to go back to the main menu every time to test changes to environment files (Biomes) is time consuming, having a SimConnect “reload” method for vegetation while in a flight would be ideal. Any such method exists? Can’t find anything in the documentation.

Cheers, Rob.

I also vote for this as it would be a good edition to the simulator. Specially if it could be extended to other environment variables.

This was my original post, I guess it was moved over by FlyingRaccoon.

Hello,

Biome definition is done using "Copy" assets. As you described, this type of asset is not live reloaded at the moment.
I have added a task in our backlog about this issue. Can't tell what the solution will be but we will look for an improvement.
This won't be done via SimConnect though, we will look for a solution in the devmode itself.

Regards,
Sylvain
