I guess they are all leading up to an XP11 announcement possibly :-)

Quite possible. First video, ATC, second, weather. Next one should be PBR.

 

I just wish they would have asked someone to do the videos for them.

Shades of Space Odyssey but not seeing anything new weather-wise. The clouds still look like the defecations of a giant race of alien sky beings rather than real clouds. There's still time though and therefore hope!

True. I'm afraid these videos do more harm than good to potential new customers. People must think X-Plane 10 is still the same as it was some years ago when seeing these videos.

The new video makes absolutely no sense, it's like they picked a bunch of bland clips from a very old version of X-Plane 10, maybe 10.25(? or earlier?) judging from the autogen (0.58 sec) there's a bunch of the old soviet-style/projects high rises around KSEA which were removed years ago. The autogen is much improved now, not sure why they didn't use the most current 10.50?  It's really painful to watch this video.

Agreed, although I imagine it's purposeful. Maybe something to do with the "To see where we're going, look where we've been" at the beginning of the video? I think the most important part of the videos are the titles, which seem to be leading up to a Cleared for Takeoff at the RAF Cosford FS Show.

I gather it's meant to build up hype and show what XP10 was capable of before dropping the XP11 bombshell, but they really should get someone else to do the videos (Someone like redpiper) ;-)

Maybe they should get Thomas Rasmussen on their team. These videos show X-Plane at its most mediocre, and not at its very best.

The sim isn't even smooth during the videos...

 

Yeah, that view flying over houses at 0:36 shows pauses in the frame rate due to either low hardware specs or wrong settings. Very embarrassing. X-Plane doesn't do that with the right settings/hardware.

 

The #1 requirement of a flight sim is smooth animation. It's the reason why many are switching from FSX/P3D and it needs to be highlighted in any promo video.

Yes it is, but many got so used to low framerates in the old sim that even with X-Plane, they're happy as long as they get two-digit framerates. Not a week passes by without a user claiming he's totally fine with 20fps...

Maybe they want the reveal of all the improvements and fixes that are included in X-Plane 11 to be more dramatic? I don't use X-Plane, but even I am tempted to check out the morning seminar on Saturday October 8.

Maybe they intend to showcase the limitations of X-Plane 10, and then reveal the improvements and fixes that are included in X-Plane 11?

 

Chris, or maybe you were simply right on that post ( joke ) you did sometime ago... and some here at the forums didn't really understand :-)))))

Yep, they aren't doing themselves any favours.
