X-Plane 11 Coming November!

Recommended Posts

For lack of big P3D releases before the end of the year, I think I'm finally gonna hop in X-plane. If for no other reason than the fact that there's a maddog. And some cool payware that P3D doesn't have, e.g. 757/767.

We will have two Maddogs here soon. Love the Rotate, but I am curious about how this new one will stack up(Looks pretty amazing though).

Its now mid November and still no official release date?

 

Pervious releases didn't have exact release dates announced either. But the past is any guide, you should expect it to be released after Thanksgiving weekend.

It also looked like over the last year to year-and-a-half that some of the popular scenery developers started porting their products to XP. Do we know yet if scenery that's compatible with XP10 will work on 11?

This MD looks great! and this video shows also some interesting aircrafts being developed for XP10/11, including the MD

If LM don't release any information regarding a 64 bit completely new platform in the next few months then it looks like P3D will be a constant yearly money spinner with only a few additions to make life easier for the simmer. It is based off of a 10 year platform and is outdated regardless of how many updates they do, how many developers out there that change it and how "awesome" people feel it looks. 

 

You won't regret your purchase of X-Plane! It will take a bit of getting used to, but once you are all set-up then you will have the time of your life! Don't pass on PMDG's DC-6 (masterpiece) and IXEG's 733 (another masterpiece)!

Thats great, thank you!

I am sure scenery from XP-10 will work with 11, its pretty much the same platform but with a lot of performance updates, and a ton of great new features being brought to the table! I am expecting sceneries to work from day one and I am sure aircraft will do too.

Agreed on all fronts. Lots of tweaking with the recent shaders utilities and ReShade finally got it looking great but there are still some serious limitations. And I have downloaded the XP demo several times and enjoyed it immensely. Gripes about the UI were overblown in IMO if you'd simply play with it for a couple of minutes. Not sure why I never bought XP10 but it'll be moot here in a week or so.

 

Sure?

 

Kind regards, Michael

 

Yes. Don't want to go OT but aside from LOWI and a 717, I think most big things have been pushed to next year.

That doesn't mean much. Could be the i7 doesn't need to work as hard in the same situation.

I think you mean this video :-) :

 

 

Xplane 11 beta could load 4 core but not 8 core at this stage as per this vid

 

 

 

@at pilot83 - I think this doesn´t mean that your 8 core CPU isn´t used, rather that this CPU is not "necessary" for XP11 ! I have an I7 6850k @4.4 Ghz and a very smooth experience with XP10 without all cores maxed out !

I would expect almost all current scenery add-ons (airports) in XP10 to work fine.

 

There may be a few glitches here and there, if roads have been updated with newer OSM data reflecting new construction that doesn't match roads around older airport scenery add-ons. Or maybe changes in landclass data that can sometimes put trees on the runway in small airports. But those should be isolated cases. I imagine that any major XP10 airport add-should be okay.

 

Of course you'll want newer 3rd party airport versions for the "living airport" stuff with pathways for the moving service vehicles. I don't think any of that is retrofitted automatically to older add-on airports.

How about a decent atc program...similar (if he gets it updated to version 7 for p3dv3) Voxatc.. Surely there is someone with those skill...lol

 

My 2 cents,

Currently, we have Pilot2ATC which is still in Alpha. Well worth the money plus you'll be supporting the developer if you buy it now.

Thanks..will have a looksy.  Can you use other voices like ivona..etc..so many atc programs are so robotic and canned sounding...

 

Best Regards,

Bob M.


I looked at website and version 2.0.... Are you working on a newer version.   If I buy now what about any upgrades.. Are the charts part of the program? That is a winner :)

Also you can try this ATC freeware which is in alpha stage http://124thatc.matacchieri.eu/ , which allows you to use "text to speech"voice such as Ivona or whatever voice you have installed and selected for your windows speech option. But what i do is disable the read back voice because it uses the same voice at this stage. Also the author mentioned in his last log the following change on his release log but i dont think the multivoice is ready yet:

 

"OpenAL support for multi voice male/female wav files (multiplatform) support. (Engine and functions implementend, still working on waves database generation and phraseology remappin"

Yes, you can use IVONA voice or other sound packs. Please know that I'm not the developer of P2A I'm just someone who is very happy to see something like VOXatc equivalent in X-Plane. The current version of P2A is 2.01.21 Alpha. The program is in constant development and is being updated on regular intervals. Usually an update a week or sometimes even sooner if severe bugs find their way in.

Oh man, I didn't realize we could use IVONA. That just bumps it up to being a Christmas purchase for me now(Currently using RC4, but it is a pain on XP 10).

Denco, does pilot2atc support multi voice example different Ivona voices for different ATC frequencies (tower,ground, departure...) and another voice for the pilot?

Yes it does :)

 

The UI of P2A is a lot more complex than let's say VoxATC, but it also has tons of useful features and a map that will follow your plane in a flight like G-Plan does. It also allows you to build a flight plan inside the program etc. There's a very good manual that comes with the program that explains every option it has to offer. But please remember that the program is still in Beta.

 

The only thing I hope to see rebuild is the in-game UI. You can read more about it here:

Well with Laminar upping X-Plane 11's UI and a great deal of 3rd party addon makers doing so as well I would assume that some may try to bring up their own standards. The better it looks the more customers are interested.

Bob,

         P2A has its' own forum here at Avsim, so you might be able to glean some information there.
