Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 Update 2 includes all the fixes from Update 1. It can installed with either the original version of Flight Simulator 2000 or a version that has already been patched with update 1. Warning: make sure that you download the correct patch – if you download the standard and apply it to the professional edition (or vice versa), Flight Simulator 2000 will cease to function. This update includes:
- With this update, dynamic scenery will work both day and night, whether you have shadows turned ON or OFF.
- Flight Simulator now includes shadows for aircraft, buildings, and dynamic scenery. The complete redesign of the scenery system in Flight Simulator 2000 made the previous method of displaying shadows obsolete.
- To view shadows, make sure that the Aircraft Shadows and Ground Scenery Shadows settings are selected in the
- Image Quality tab of the Display Settings dialog box. To get to this dialog box in Flight Simulator, click the Options menu, point to Settings, and then click Display. Then click the Image Quality tab.

- Autopilot-induced oscillations while following the ILS glideslope have been fixed.
- Displayed ATIS frequencies are now limited to frequencies tunable with the Communication radio.
- The Learjet 45 and the Boeing 737-400 ADF needles now correct for magnetic variation.
- Voodoo2 video cards now correctly render gauges.
