Bug Report; Config Files not Reloading after Build

Hello Team Asobo,

Before SU9, we were able to click 'Build' in Project Manager/Inspector/Build and the simulator would rebuild, update, and reload the flight with the updates 'in' and active. Now I find that I cannot get them to show until I go to Main Menu in the sim and restart the entire flight.

It is still working per say, but that is quite a bit of time added to the process. If one is doing just small updates and tunings, all day long, this could multiply the time quite a bit. Also the sim stops working after quite a few reloads and you need to reboot the computer. If, somehow, you could restore the ability to reload the plane after clicking Build without having to completely reload the flight, it would be a huge help to us developer people.

God bless and thank you for all your hard work.

Hi @lyonhaart001
You should use the Save and Resync function in the Aircraft Editor

We have opened an issue on our side for the project editor which should return a dialog box indicating that there are unsaved changes.


Regards,
Boris

is the "save and resync" function going to be available for the scenery design side of the editor? what a great time save that would be when design/editing an airport....instead of saving/exporting or building and having to close the project just to have to re-open it....just a thought..thanks in advance

Any specific feature of the Scenery Editor you have in mind here?
Hot reload is not always consistent in the Scenery Editor as it interacts with many parts of the game engine but it should be the rule and we can log a bug if you provide details (ideally in a different post).
