The latest patch now live and installed on Series X and I can gladly report the Spit is, at last, a joy to fly on Xbox. There is a bug with setting engine damage ‘ON’ and having to always set fuel pressure ‘ON’ too, otherwise the engine will constantly fire and fluctuate, eventually stalling, but overall a huge improvement. Over 6 months later and I finally feel I’ve got my money’s worth.
The addition of the tablet is really helpful when flying with the standard Xbox controller. Great work guys, better late than never. ;)
For those curious about how the Spitfire looks in the Xbox version, check it out:
Visual and Flight Model are great! Looking forward to the update arrival in Marketplace.
Well done guys! Keep it up!
Hola, no encuentro ni se donde ir para actualizar mi Spitfire en MSFS 2020, TAMPOCO ME HA LLEGADO NINGUN EN LACE PARA DICHA ACTUALIZACION 1.1.0, EL AVION LO COMPRÉ HACE 6 MESES APROX. POR FAVOR AYUDAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Visual Model – Amazing
Flight Model – Good
Taxi Modelling – Not Great (Too Easy for a Spitfire – Tail wheel directly connected to rudder control- Not representative of a Spitfire taxi handling)
Sound – Fair (Needs Improving – Sounds is good on Startup however the rest of the sounds don’t sound like a Spitfire)
Other remarks – Taxi and Takeoff should have more torque swing as power is applied. Tail wheel should be castor and not directly controlled with rudder input but with a combination of rudder and brake inputs.
OVERALL RATING – GOOD (Could be AMAZING if the Takeoff & Taxi issues are resolved – Keeping Improving!)
Awesome, I can’t wait for it to show up in the Marketplace! For those of you wondering where the update is and haven’t bothered to read their F.A.Q., Microsoft / Asobo have a lengthy verification process for everything submitted to the Marketplace. It takes 3-4 weeks at least for it to show up as an update in your Content Manager. So if you purchased it via the in-game market as I did, its a waiting game. And we are waiting on MS / Asobo, not FlyingIron. Will definitely be purchasing via an online marketplace next time so I’m not choked back by verification periods like this lol.
