Will FS2020 have a sim time acceleration rate feature like the  FSX? EX: the X2 X4 X8 ext?
I have not found that info anywhere.

Greetings fellow flight simulation enthusiast!

I understand your query regarding the sim time acceleration rate feature in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (also known as MSFS). It's a great question as time acceleration can significantly enhance the simulation experience, especially for those lengthy flights.

I'm happy to confirm that MSFS 2020 does indeed include a time acceleration feature, similar to what you're familiar with in FSX. You can accelerate the simulation rate up to X16, X32, and even X64. It's important to note that as you increase the acceleration, the overall realism and stability of the simulation might be affected. As such, it is advised to use this feature judiciously.

To access this feature in MSFS 2020, you can follow these steps:

  • Press the ESC key to bring up the in-game menu.
  • Navigate to the Options tab.
  • Click on General.
  • Scroll down to the Miscellaneous section.
  • Here, you'll find the Sim Rate setting, where you can adjust the time acceleration rate.

Alternatively, you can use the following keyboard shortcuts to adjust the time acceleration rate during the simulation:

  • To increase the sim rate: R + CTRL + NUMPAD +
  • To decrease the sim rate: R + CTRL + NUMPAD -
  • To reset the sim rate back to normal: R + CTRL + NUMPAD 1

I hope this clears up your doubts! Enjoy your flights in the breathtakingly realistic world of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. If you have any more questions or concerns, feel free to ask. We're always here to help you and other flight sim enthusiasts.

Happy landings!
