I had requested the exact opposite here in this thread:
After SU5, I can no long swap in/out my Seasonal files (biomes.xml, species.xml) to match user flight date selection (aka Month) so they get corresponding vegetation (i.e. winter vegetation when december in Northern hemisphere or summer vegetation when July, etc.).
Prior to SU5, I could update these .xml files in my company community folder and they would be loaded prior to flight start (user at the main menu). With SU5, this no longer works and the user has to exit MSFS and then restart MSFS rendering my automatic seasonal detection and application of correct Biomes/Species .xml files useless.
So it appears you took my request and went in the opposite direction and locked out my product functionality aimed at making life easier for users to get seasonal vegetation.
I know MSFS must be reading the community folder while "in sim" since content can be added and removed via MarketPlace. But, for some odd reason you no longer do this during flight start?
Why was this changed? The XML vegetation files are tiny and don't have a significant processing overhead.
Going back to my original request was:
1. Could we get "live" vegetation reloads while in Sim, nothing was added to the SDK to support this
If this is not possible, then go back to the way it used to work prior to SU5 where community data for vegetation is loaded on flight start.
