XP Grinder unlocked for me. Yay! TA and Xbox.com only have one XP Grinder achievement, but when I hit the guide button while playing Flight, it lists two. Weird.

A lot of achievements didn't unlock for me when I should have unlocked them, but following the guide on this forum about deleting the achievement cache gave me them the next time I booted the game. Having said that however i had no problem with Maui Bound or Princely Cargo.

And YEAH XP Grinder baby! Still confused as to why there are still 2 "XP Grinder" achievements. But at least they FINALLY patched it.

I noticed they reduced the sensitivity of the Xbox 360 controller with the patch. The throttle doesn't go from 0 to 100% in half a second, haha.

EDIT: "Multiplayer host changing weather will no longer affect other users in missions that have specific weather settings." Glad I did those landing missions in the fog before they fixed it.

Damn! Would've been awesome to use.

EDIT: Semi-unrelated, but is there a way to check total DAILY aerocaches collected? I can only find total aerocaches and the little counter that pops up stopped after 10.

I usually take my total aerocaches - regular ones to figure out how many are daily.

don't know about achievements yet
but fairly certain there won't be free content since it's not in the style of the game when the original was free but hey you never know we got the mustang for free now so there may be some
the'll also be new challanges, such as landing and gold rush and a basic version of the Carbon Cub thrown in, shame it won't have a cockpit but hey
