Some simulation improvements
Also, it mentions some interesting updates in the plane modeling. Among these, we learn that engine oil temperature has been changed to reflect the oil viscosity changing with temp. Now, engine overheating will be much more punishing. Propeller speed governor has been tweaked to match historical values. This will impact some Russian aircrafts. Effects have been tweaked as well, like dust clouds not appearing when impacting specific material such snow or concrete.
