XP11 out of the box!

Well since the question "my next sim" was posed, NO it is not until Austin can add viable ATC and AI traffic to adequately simulate a commercial airline environment.

 

Pretty to look at though.

That's funny, you have 1545 posts but I never saw a post of you, in any forum, saying something positive. Being always grumpy is bad for your health, you know. :wink:

Do you have a template for this part which you just need to copy and paste into all of your X-Plane postings? ;-)

to adequately simulate a commercial airline environment.

Out of the box commercial airliners environment is not simulated however the option of adding the static commercial airliners on gates is there.

A freeware ATC in alpha is available and allows you to add text to speech voices such as Ivona or windows TTS voices but do not interact with AI traffic add on such as world of traffic currently 2 voices and the author is working on multi voice support http://124thatc.matacchieri.eu/

World of traffic AI addon is able to simulate commercial traffic but do not interact with default ATC or the freeware ATC above, world of traffic requires lot of personal effort in installation and still not perfect but the developer is to release a v3.

Below is a screenshot at KSEA using World of traffic add on, spotting a take off of Fedex

There are several ways to make this happen in XP.

Fantastic video! I enjoy XP11 very much as well.

I find its look and performance remarkable for a beta release!

I am looking forward to the coming updates and addon releases!

I will admit that AI traffic is a PITA in X-plane but there are a couple of commercial alternatives. As far as ATC, I don't know many people using the default ATC in either FSX or P3D. That's why there are so many third party ATC programs. Both Radar Contact and PF3 can be used with X-Plane along with Pilot2ATC which works very well with X-Plane 10.

It's okay to not double post in the XPlane forum, really it is.  :t0152:

As a P3D and former FSX user I have to say that XP11 looks most impressive!

 

I will be watching this one closely. I did try the XP10 demo but to be honest was a left a little flat with it.

I guess some people want something that even FSX or PR3D fabolous AI cannot do, that's it to interact with user's plane. Even AI planes in FSX cannot follow SID and STARS unless you install an over complicated plugin, see video for example 

 

While watching video I could not believe how unrealistic behave AI aircrafts in FSX and how bad textures look, after two years of XP10 it seems so basic I could not stand them anymore. Usually are the same textures but in XP10 they look much better.

 

In the beginning setting a decent AI movement for FSX was quite challenging, downloading WOAI package, setting timetables, only some years later auto installing packages came out. It's true that XP is in the beginning phase regarding AI and ATC but I'm confident they will come.

If you want good traffic and ATC join VATSIM or IVAO... why use built in stuff when you can fly on a real network with real controllers and traffic...
