Aerosoft Show off X-Plane 10 on Video

Those considering a move to the new version of X-Plane, whether it be from an earlier version of XP or from the MSFS series, might be interested in Aerosoft’s latest video, uploaded to YouTube earlier today, showing Laminar’s new sim in all its glory.

Whichever side of the fence you sit on regarding simulation and the differences between the various developers’ platforms, you have to admit that XP looks phenomenal on a modern PC.

not to mention that the cockpits in XP10 seem to have been drawn by an 11 year old designer, they really suck. Let’s wait for MSFlight, I still have hope.

with almost 80gb of harddisk space but only cover 1 season, no airport building and terminal, raw color of water is black and purely rely on reflection to “shade” its color, some complain the flight dynamic model is terrible, still in beta form (even the newly release “patch” itself also in beta form!)… those fsx user with lots of addons should think carefully before spending money on this platform.

XPlane evolved from the “indie simulator” that focuses on airfoils simulation with a geeky engineering friendly code to a cleary advertised and sold equivalent of an MSFS Lately Laminar preached FSX users to covert and offered XP9 as a better replacement to FSX… If their stragey has to be this way, then indeed they need to deliver an equivalent basic content like FSX for the money they charge… People who pay 90$ let’s say for the simulator as advertised expect to have all the basic content staight on the DVDs, ready to be used. They might not want to spend… Read more »

X-Plane has always been an “airflow” simulator more than a “world” simulator, as the developers’ company name (after laminar flow) implies. Therefore it has been lagging a long way behind the MSFS series in the scenery and AI stakes for a long time – it’s not just lack of developers and money, it’s also a lack of inclination; the world has never been the priotity, always coming well down the list behind flight dynamics. I don’t have the release version of XP10, so will not be reviewing it in an unbiased way or otherwise, but I’m sure other people will… Read more »

…BTW, I hope someone will make a detailed and fair and deep review of XP10 on public flight simulation websites soon talking about the things XP10 lacks compared to FSX so FS users can make their mind and not throw their money on a XP10 just based on the hype or its advertisement…
