Knows Issues

  • Missing STARS when using Navigraph. This is a SIM limitation. The situation in WSSS is quite unique, the new runway 02R/20L is part of WSAC before and is now being used also as a civilian runway for WSSS. But on the SIM, this runway is still part of the WSAC. Until asobo updates it, STARS issue will exist. More explanations on the navigraph forum. Workaround for now when using Navigraph is to manually enter the points on MCDU (sounds fun anyway). if you are not using navigraph, you should be fine.
  • We are lacking some data from the WSAC Military airbase. One primary reason is the area is heavily restricted to public access. So visuals on the area are based on satellite imagery only. Best it can get.
  • For some reason, 1 out of 40 users reported experiencing conflict with KDEN or GMMN addon. If you experience a CTD, you might need to remove the conflicted scenery/addon. We are still investigating this kind of issue.
