Not all - only airports and one plane - CRJ 200. Rest of planes cost as usually.

Is this version of XPlane installable and playable on a PC without being connected to steam?

You can't install it without being connected... It's digital, you need to download it....

 

Play you can play offline as Steam has an offline mode.

 

Also, while it's true that it's 48 hours, this is just the first day of the sale, and they do repeat sometimes, but if you want to be sure it, I'd grab it now. To me it has two BIG advantages:

 

1) HALF price. You won't get it cheaper than this

2) No need to have a DVD in the drive...

Been thinking of giving Xplane a try and for this price I think I will. Ill also pick up the Aerosoft CRJ.

 

Just bought XP-10 and the CRJ combined they cost $5 less than X-plane usually does.

You don't need to connect to Steam to play (e.g. if your internet down), but you need Steam account and Steam installed.  Unless you choose to open the client, it's hardly noticeable, though I do appreciate some people have a complete aversion to the world of Gabe.....  If you've got Steam already, it works like anything else there.

No don't have Steam, not interested in that.  But sounds like a good deal then can run off my HD without running steam.

 

Thanks guys.

Been a Steam user since the start honestly its not a bad thing. It keeps all your games updated and allows easy access to any DLC I use it for Skyrim,GTA ect and the best part is I can use my games on all my PC's and install from anywhere, on vacation ect.

Still don't get what people have against steam.., but no you can't run it without running steam. Steam will launch in the background.

Is there a tutorial how to use X-Plane 10? Just bought it but none of the normal keyboard shortcuts such a A to cycle through the views work. Neither does my joystick throttle, brake, etc.

What is the nonsense with Steam that each and every time it keeps stating that I'm logging-in from a new computer or new browser and then asks for some kind of code which I have to access my email for just to get into my account? You pay for a product and then get nonsense like this. How many computers or browsers does Steam suppose customers use to login? In the space of 10 minutes it has sent me 5 security codes just to login, and that's before I can even get to what I purchased today.

 

Anyone else having to do the same? This is now beginning to make me regret buying X-Plane.

There was a bit of a glitch around the time of the start of the sale, I had similar, but it seems to have calmed down now and I've never had that problem on any other device whilst I've had Steam.  Most likely a load issue as the world rushes to fill their boots with cheap games they will never play

Much as you may seem to defend them, their Customer Support is trite. Their website forum unlike here, puts so many obstacles in the way just to join----never mind make a post-----their forum, Nowhere on their site is there an option to make a direct complaint. It is all pre-tailored answers which in fact provide no answer or solution at all, like the issue about being repeatedly being asked every step of the way for some stupid security code. Personally, I would not recommend anyone obtaining the X-Plane 10 via Steam

Defend them? Nah, I just never had anything more than the most minor glitch, and I've never really found their support that difficult to access? Perhaps I'm just lucky....

While I think they'll do alright without anyone defending them, I'd just toss in that when you're dealing with the sheer volume of customers (millions) that Steam does, customer support of any sort becomes an issue.  They are, after all, the primary source for purchasing computer games these days, and have been for some years.

 

I've never, ever had an issue with them, and I've shopped there since they first opened up. It seems so normal now, but back then the idea of not having to go and put up with the crappy, over-priced selection of games at retail stores, many of which you'd have to find and download extensive updates on your own for, was very refreshing.

 

Apart from FSX (although I picked a copy of that up on Steam when it was cheap just for backup), nearly every game I own (158 and counting) is through Steam.  I let most games on my PC auto-update.  Since Steam runs in the background and my pc is on 24/7, it means that every update is pushed on release, and whenever I want to play a game it's sitting there ready.  Very handy.

 

And yes, now I have X-Plane on there as well.  Works like a charm.

 

I'm sorry you've had a bad taste regarding the platform, but my experience has been entirely the opposite.

Did not have a bad taste of the X-Plane 10 platform. More a bad taste of a website that just to access each and every step kept asking me to input a Security Code with a message that I must be logging-in from a different browser or computer, which seemed completely idiotic seeing that they could log my IP address. So, if that was not changing, it was not as if I had a 100 computers all trying to login, yet repeatedly, just  to login to Steam, just to download the platform, or just o even ask a Support question, all within the space of 5-10 minutes kept getting asked to input a Security Code, which meant closing a browser page and then accessing my email to get that Code.

 

As for the volume of customers, other developers who have released items on sale or full price never seem to have these issues, when we as customers raring to bolt the door rush for such sales.

 

Rather than going through Steam, whom I would not now touch with a barge pole again, I will purchase the XPX in disk format. I do not need this login every 5 secs with a Security Code nonsense.

This was either a glitch or something wrong in YOUR computer not processing cookies etc correctly...

 

What you see is called "Steam Guard" and is a security feature that you can turn off. Of course for that you'd have to actually read instead of wasting time writing rants that do not benefit anyone, yourself included.

 

But I guess reading is overrated these days...
