X-Plane 10 Global : the final release

Great news, X-Plane 10 in its final release is now ready for shipping in its metal case. It takes advantage of multi-core setup and can display a dense and live world around you, still with high accurate flight behaviour and opened for external creations of aircraft, sceneries and tools.

Yes XP10 has allot of Potential but the V10 is not ready yet as an out of the box replacement to FSX… One must be patient to wait for some updates to round its corners etc… Even without Add-ons, it should have an overall comprehensive usability but for now it does not… It feels as a half sim engine and half end user simulator… It is in between these two categories for now and not clearly either… But yes it has allot of potential technologicaly… And I hope Laminar will act a little more professionaly in the way they will… Read more »
