Another interview with the LR Team - Ben Supnik...

Recommended Posts

Oh, I've called Ben "Sputnik" so many times :-/

 

Then I thought it was Spunik...

 

After all is SUPNIK - Ben SUPNIK!!!

 

Anyway, read this new interview, if you care...

Learn about the Unique Autogen approach, the plans for ATC, etc...

 

X-Plane 10 is progressively becoming THE REFERENCE!!!!!

Looks good. Better Autogen, more of it with better optimised shadows. And good ATC. And opening things like AI and seasons up to 3rd parties.

 

This is no longer a case of 'if' X-plane 10 becomes the next major sim but 'when'!

Very informative interview! It complements the former interview here on AVSIM and is probably even a little more informative.

This will probably get more positive reader response, I think. The Answers in the Avsim interview seemed like it inspired people to hold their tongues.

a future patch will seriously upgrade X-Plane's built-in GPS capabilities.

 

Yes - we are working on Oculus Rift support now! :-)

 

 

Excellent!

Improvements to autogen and AA under investigation. That's what I wanted to hear.

Guys, is there any word from LR on fixing the blurry view at higher altitudes?

My copy of XP10 went on eBay a couple of months back as I can't stand this, but I'd be willing to reinvest if this was sorted.

Yes, that's one of the items that will receive some form of upgrade with 10.30.

It's interesting to see the type of questions they asked compared to the AVSIM interview where they basically started with 'Why don't you fix all the problems people want fixed in X-Plane?'.

Very well observed :P. That's what I also noticed. Answers in an interview are (often) adequate to the questions ...

One of the the best parts:

 

"Both Chris Serio and myself (the co-designers of the ATC engine) are long-time VATSIM controllers with considerable knowledge about real-world ATC operations; our goal was to make a system that could be extended to model all real-world ATC operations"
