God........X Plane is so ahead of its time and sooooo much better than the rest

Recommended Posts

Just landing any descent payware aircraft just feels soooooo right, even the default aircraft dynamics you can feel them, and the night lighting, WOW, how good is that!! I can't wait for the next two or three aircraft that are coming out! That's all we need....and they're coming for sure!

Wow..I was just coming back with three more screen shots of Mr. X's KSFO v2.0...and wanted to tell folks, that they NEED (no matter what FPS your system will give you!!!) to put the OBJECTS to EXTREME...to see truly what is at this airport, and happening around you...the animation OMG!....the animation of ground crews, their equipment...and logistics, management traffic....

 

I vote this one airport project, as the best airport I have ever seen...in any flight simulation platform...and what great FPS optimization for what is happening around you in animation...and static rendering...H.S.!

 

Mr X...Justin...who the h*ll ARE YOU?!?!?!?!?!?!???   You should introduce yourself fully here, on Avsim....and take the kudos and admiration for your Xplane work...ALL of your airports...but this one...KSFO v2.0....my jaw, is upon the computer desk...and I haven't even taken to the runway yet....

 

H.S.!

 

Total admiration and respect, sir!   Xplane with your scenery...especially KSFO v2.0...is what any platform should try to obtain.  This airport scenery has put all the other flight sims....in the rear-view mirror 'dust'....H.S.!

If this scenery doesn't convince most simmers to come on board, nothing will. MisterX's KSFO scenery and KPDX airports deserve AVSIM Platinum awards.  :wub:

Mister X's freeware scenery surpasses a lot of payware scenery, that's for sure.  I only wish that I had more reason to utilize them!!

I don't have X-Plane but I do have a question.  Is there a way to hide the screen pop up that gives you the wind data, etc.....I see it in every XP screenshot and it just seems very distracting.

I so, SO agree....I have spent an hour ON THE GROUND...exploring....and am being so blown away, and entertained...wow.  I can only imagine whats to be seen, upon climb-out!!!  For anybody on AVSIM, that blows past XPLANE....(laugh)  my extreme condolences....for they do NOT KNOW, and CAN NOT know, what they are letting slip by...no matter whatever sim platform they predominately follow...but, anyway...you can lead horses to water, but can't make them drink....and how true!

Yes Mark, it is similar to the FSX or P3D frames counter but offers you CPU and GPU load as well as frames. It is optional via a menu

Mark, I have always...well..usually...FPS and Speed data showing, for fellow XP'ers...so they can parse the scene, its complexity, and compare the FPS/scene complexity to their system application.  That's why I will also on occasion, show the RENDERING screen of the sim, so the viewer has that information as well

 

With all the myriad systems in place behind AVSIM screenshots, it is nice to see that screenshot uploaded, but then a little data feedback along with it, on how the system was configured to get what can be seen within that screenshot.  That's my justification for my shots, and what's displayed on/with them.

I always cringe when I see topics like this posted. It has a tendency to bring out the "defenders of the realm" for all sims great and small. The thread usually devolves into a downward spiral and is eventually locked.

Here you go Mark...some without data displaying...enjoy!  I finally got my butt off of the ground.... :P

 

For these shots, I raised my GAMMA setting to: 2.6 

I usually run at 2.4..for a more moody scene.

Totally agree from me,, and I didnt even mention all the freeware scenery, especially Mr X. One hell of a sim, no more fsx for me.

Hey Paul...nah...run with FSX, P3D...everything you have, depending on your flight mood......don't cut yourself off from what great features all of them espouse.  You just did the smart thing though, and added to your enjoyment pool, bringing XPX.41 into the hangar........and ain't the water warm?  :)  

 

Especially around the San Fran Bay area.... (large smile).

That about sums it up form my viewpoint as well. These sims aren't a mutually exclusive relationship you know, therefore it's not cheating if you load up XPX to fly an A350 that isn't available in P3D anyways.

I know what your saying guys, I'm a big fsx fan but it's leaving me now, I'm finding myself flying X plane more and more, it's just so more immersive, especially when you land, it fires my belly up! I love pmdg, been with them from day one, love em, but fsx is fading now, the future is X plane, without a shadow of a doubt.

I've been bouncing back and forth between wanting to buy Xplane and not for years. Recently, I downloaded the demo and actually took the time to set it up right and try some freeware add-ons, and more than ever I'm really burning to actually buy this sim once and for all. Those atmospheric effects after playing with the Dataref Art controls are SO realistic! If there was some way to use my hat switch the same way I can in P3D/FSX, I'd be sold instantly. Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to do this yet.

So far I have never seen an XP winter in Canada, its always summer. LOL  

 

But The future looks promising with the upcoming Dovetail FS (possibly), AeroFly 2 https://www.aerofly.com/aerofly_fs_2/  , and NGFS http://nexgenflightsim.com/ --- all three of these are likely to surpass XP easy.

 

True but you can have winter by replacing the textures. I know its a lot of work.

Also recently(talking about since 10.40 went final) xplane has allowed different textures to be loaded while the sim is running. I would say different seasons in xplane will be here by the mid 2016. most likely it be pay ware but lets see

Some of the shots do look fantastic, but like @pracines, the lack of seasonal texture variation does put me off.     Never say never though!    I had XP6 I think it was :smile:

There is a hat switch plugin for this purpose. I have it and my hat switch works the same as in FSX/P3D, just a bit slower.

Your reply would be far more appropriate in the sub forums you seem to favor. A new sim will take years for it to mature and you can forget about decent payware for a good long time. Having no seasons does not bother me in the least.

I suspect X-Plane is a great simulator and I'm glad the current market has 3 great ones to choose from, but I feel a little more comfortable with a company like LM behind the development of P3D, that is were I'm putting my money......But the choice of flight sims is a very subjective opinion, there all starting to look the same to me with all the addons being developed for the 3 platforms.

I use a plug in called X-Camera, I use the hat switch and can program many views with it, and it is donation-ware

I can certainly agree with you here Martin. That's the whole premise of the Avsim sub forums. Each one caters to one's preferences, which is a good thing and I might add, a privilege.
