This month, an unusual error occurred in Microsoft Flight Simulator. In his opinion, this is a 212-story building in Melbourne.
In Microsoft Flight Simulator, players faced an unusual mistake offered to players last Tuesday when they talked about their name, as well as the right storage location and realistic graphics. The game is a rather long structure in an unknown location in Melbourne, Australia.
Many Microsoft Flight Simulator players collided with a 212-story building in the city. Of course, there is no such building either in Melbourne or anywhere in the world. And how did this building come into such a real game?
The reason for the 212-story building is typo
A Twitter user who studies how this building appeared in the game found that the cause of the problem is simple spelling. Asobo Studio used data from Open Street Map, a world map with a free audience, to create access points to the game. Everyone can contribute to filling unknown locations on this platform.
According to Twitter user Liam O (@ liamosaur), who conducted the study, about 1 year ago, the user “nathanwright120” added information about a building in a certain area on the map. The user, making a mistake, wrote that in fact the 2-story building was 212 floors.
Despite the fact that this information was later corrected by another user, the game developers received data by that time. A small spelling error made by the user led to the appearance of a huge building in the Microsoft game for flight simulation. He contacted the game developers studio to correct this mistake. However, before this error was fixed, this player made an attempt to descend to the top of the 212-story building and posted the video on the YouTube. You can watch the player try to land on top of a 212-story building.
