12:47 PM | Tim Morgan | Comment on this story
After a week of beta testing, Laminar Research has released version 6.15 of its popular general-aviation simulator, X-Plane. The new version includes many fixes:
Refinements:X-Plane is a modular flight simulator allowing pilots to fly almost anywhere on the planet in a variety of airplanes, from the typical to the exotic. X-Plane also simulates outer space and Mars flight.
IMG Review: X-Plane
- Video RAM reduction of 40% at moderate to high texture res!
- Load-time speedup of 15%!
- Visible speedbrakes on the wings! Pop the speedbrakes on the airliners and see them visually, as requested.
- Briefer can now print the weather report to a text file so you may print it, etc, for viewing during flight.
- More joysticks are now supported and more thoroughly. Also More PFC support.
- Landing gear warning horn silencer, as requested.
- Mixture and ignition status avail for data output.
- Engine failure by separation from aircraft. Yes, this is "interesting." VERY "interesting." sometimes FATALY "interesting."
- Load and save flight plans in your FMS system, as requested. Share them with your friends if you like! They are ".FMS" files in your "output/FMS plans" folder.
- Tire smoke OK, even on the replay and even if you blow a tire.
- Refined realweather interpretation... X-Plane and Briefer cannot be fooled by erroneous or contradictory remarks.
- All navaid data avail for udp output even if the cockpit is not up.
