Debating on the MS Store version of MSFlight Sim or the Steam version. DId anyone buy it on Steam? Apparently it doesn't update the game unless you run it, and patches can take hours because you're at the mercy of the MS servers. I'm not keen on that, would rather let the MS Store take care of all that while I did other things. Does the Xbox app still suck?
I bought it on Steam. I can verify that it does not update through Steam, although there are small updates that I presume are launcher updates. I started the game today knowing that world update 6 has dropped and I am having trouble getting it to stay "connected" for the update download even though I have a rock solid internet connection. So, perhaps Steam wasn't the best platform. I didn't have the problem before though, so perhaps just flaky servers on patch day? Still, you might be better off staying clear of Steam.
