Sorry for being that guy, but when will the SDK update corresponding to SU6 be out?

I also wonder if it would be possible to do SDK documentation updates more like in the rolling release style, with frequent updates, as hopefully documentation is being improved all the time. It's "just" documentation, so there is no risk of breaking anything, it doesn't need to go through a rigorous QA process.

Hi Sylvain. Does it fix the problem with the build window that does not appear with the fspackagetool.exe ?

Thanks. (For some reason my web browser just kept showing the cached pages of the previous version SDK documentation, had to manually clear the caches.)

Why is the log window now disabled when using fspackagetool.exe? Now I can't see what is goes wrong. And please don't tell me to look at the log in the sim... There are 3500+ errors from default assets or something, unable to find info for my scenery.

You can filter the ingame log to only show the "Builder" category.

The fs-packagetool bug is still present because it's on the FlightSimulator.exe side, not depending on the SDK.
Can't tell when and how we will address that one yet.

Ok, but to adapt to the future LOD management sytem, the building debug infos are essential. So it will delay the schedule of those adaptations (of course, for freeware modders, it is not a problem, but for partners and companies that offer payware content, it can be problematic). Maybe you can report back this info to Jorg or someone else in the MS/Asobo team to fix this issue quickly.

updated, but..

is just me or some files ( e.g in bin folder or in fsdevmodelauncher folder, but pretty much everywhere) in the SDK are showing, in file explorer, last modified date of 21/10/2020 ??

since i have a copy of the fspackagetool in every project folder, i know for sure that it's last modification was 14 /1/‎2021, ‏‎17:58:12

while the 21/10/2020 one comes from the on of the very first SDK

Hi,

the source code in .MAX for the Jetway sample (and other samples too), which was present in 0.14.0 is missing, but we can see the Jetway object itself has been udpated ( 5 LODs vs 2 ).

Hello.

The updated .max is not included yet, it needs some more work before being made publicly available.

Sylvain
