X-Plane 10, End of the year ?

Recommended Posts

Just as I predicted, 6 to 12 months...."Just run your installer (from X-Plane.com) with the BETA options turned ON to get itHave at it and let me know how it goes!austin""ps: X-Plane 10 is much, much, much slower in coming along than I planned.. but it is much, much better as well. It is slow because I have raised the bar ridiculously high for this release, simply because I CAN. SO, I am keeping v9 totally bug-free while v10 is developed, which I am hoping to have ready by the end of this year.""I am hoping to have v10 ready quite a bit sooner than that."

If he said he wanted to add to it, then I would totally agree. Last year, you said based on the current timeline and development it will be 6-12 months. Not based on the extra features he recently decided to add. ie. raising the bar ridiculously high.I'm guessing, based on this new statement, your new prediction will be June to December 2012.

strider1: Any predictions on how long it will take for Goran's 747-200 Study sim? :)

It could be anything. Extra features. Coding issues. Quality issues. By Austin's own admission, he has raised the bar ridiculously high during development.PMDG's 737 is now almost a year late and that's just an add on. They estimated that would be out by Mid 2010 and the 777 late 2010-early 2011. And that's just aircraft.X Plane 10 will have features that no one has ever seen before in a flight simulator.So much so that Aerosoft are now developing for X Plane because they "like what they see". Takes a lot to migrate an entire development store from 1 platform to another.

For example the new Global Scenery with a lot of new features and especially new content needed to use those features ... all that for sure needs lots of love :(

Until Austin Meyer himself makes some kind of announcement, there are no firm dates. Any site that does provide dates should not be doing so.

:( default??? :( I like it!Just wondering though, will the livery be changed before release due to the United merger? I know that at least some of the United 747s have not yet changed to the new livery, but as I said, just wondering...Again, I really like it. Its great. What level of systems has been simulated? Obviously this will not be payware aircraft levels of detail, but it certainly looked better than the FSX default because it had some sort of FMC. (if you have ever tried FSX).

The author said it's not the final product and it will be better:http://forums.x-pilot.com/index.php?topic=2742.0Default X-Plane 9 FMC is already a very nice tool:http://wiki.x-plane.com/Chapter_6:_Navigation,_Autopilots,_and_Flying_on_Instruments#Flying_an_FMS_Plan

.......it had some sort of FMC
The default "pseudo-FMC" is pretty much a simple data entry hook tied to the default GPS where you can enter/save a flight plan and coupled to the AP. It does not simulate any sort of LNAV/VNAV/SID/STAR/enroute data and provides basically a time-to-go/distance information from current position and basic AP route following of an entered flight plan.It's not bad...but its not an FMC. Unless of course XP10 has incorporated a generic Navigraph-supported uFMC version which would be interesting news.

Unfortunately not. However, it is an option for people to use in much of their add ons as opposed to the default X Plane FMC.

I really wish Xplane communicated better with the community. I was totally excited to purchase XP10 and thought that it actually would surpass MS Flight in many areas. I just have no idea now because I really have not seen anything of substance for a long time. Just a couple of minor updates to where things might be. Flight is looking very good, I must say.

Ya, MS is really bending over backward to keep us all in the loop.

Just to point out, MikeI have seen more updates, forum posts, blog entries and videos of XPlane 10 than I have of Flight.X-Planes entire ATC and AI is being written by a 3rd party programmer. Austin Meyer has spent far too much money on other developers to work on XP10 to let it turn into vaporware.Patience.

I must be missing the posts because all I really see as a non-programmer is what is available on the XP news page, which is lacking. I remember when they had their Tuesday updates for a period of time and then it turned into a once every three month update. Would love to see more updates because XP10 was looking very good. It is just not good messaging to pull back so much.
