Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update XV: Nordics & Greenland review

Climb into your cold weather gear, we're off to Northern Europe and Greenland

I'm fairly certain that this will be the last World Update until 2024. While Asobo hasn't made any official announcements, the late arrival of this latest update would indicate it's unlikely that we'll get a Christmas present from them. Having said that, I see that a City Update is scheduled for December 19, whether that will be a single city or a collection remains to be seen.

World Update XV

I've been doing this long enough now to know how to install these World Updates. Yet for some reason, I was expecting the file to be installed automatically. The session began as usual with a small update to version 1.34.16.0, after which I went to the Content Manager to install the update. Sometime later, it finally dawned on me that the update is done by selecting it from the Marketplace, not the Content Manager. Unfortunately by then I had deleted the content in the Community folder, the Rolling Cache, Scenery Index files and I can't remember what else! I only mention this tale of woe in case anyone else has a memory as bad as mine.
