Thanks for looking - have to work on quality - looks way better on my pc - must have something to do with the png X-Plane output file format

Approaching the threshold on 08R at CYVR, a big flock of seagulls took to the sky and I had to fly right through them with the 737. Heard numerous bird strikes and seemed to have lost an engine ;)

 

It was pretty cool.

 

XP11 is pretty awesome out of the box. I think it's a game changer for Laminar and the first time I'm actually seriously contemplating making X-Plane my main sim.

Thanks for sharing.  Looks impressive.  Am keeping a close eye on the X-Plane threads, might jump in when the first full (post-beta) version is released.

Looks amazing Richard,

 

Great for a Beta version. Hopefully Performance is a top priority as i saw Rob´s videos and he was struggling to have 25-30fps without weather and default GA.

Wow Rich,

 

What great shots looks so good far more real than anything else out there!

 

Still cannot believe you have ditched P3D you were such a fan!! and to read you were going to quit simming also!

 

Hope XP11 has re newed your interest, it has mine and  like you I was on the verge of quitting...just got totally bored with it all.

 

All the very best with the new baby!!!!

 

Cheers

 

Mark

I love what I see of X11 so far. If only I could afford a new rig anytime soon ... but my old trusty box is still running strong fortunately!

Well guys been loving Robs videos for a long time and now enjoying his X-Plane videos - I dont chase FPS no need in X-Plane it just works great imo

 

I have butter smooth performance in XP11 - if I turn up hdr full well thats a different story so its one notch from the left - reflections one notch from left - AA varies but around the middle slider selection AA could be a tad better but not complaining which I usually do its pretty good - will be better in final version - have scenery objects down one notch from the right - scenery shadows on - texture quality one notch from right but after seeing Robs video i will crank that up

 

Now I am thinking my 32 gig of ram is a probably the reason I am getting very good performance - Rob has 16gig but up updating to 32gig

 

Another thing that I think is key is my cooling on my monster rig - I have a separate water loop for cpu and on for the gpu (Titan X) they never go above 35 degrees and this in my mind is huge keeping heat down does help

 

As for addons at the moment I have MisterX libraries and world libraries V3 form x-plane.org - Payware Justsim LOWI - xenviro funny thing is all the places I went the weather was accurate ans always had clouds but was clear at LOWI when shot taken - bad timing - have soundmaxx - Maxxfx but have to test that with xenviro as they say its not supported - headshake  - Mr. D NY airports and city - by the way saw no difference in performance using these addons - amazing - as for aircraft just the newly updated CRJ2 - going to pick up the IEXG 737 - heard good stuff about that one and it will be updated for XP11 - got my eyes on Airbus and some private jets when they are XP11 ready including new PBR materials

 

I havent loaded any great freeware airports yet something to look forward to

 

Ok all that said I am a kid in a candy store blown away by what I am seeing - tons of moving vehicles - AI aircraft that look awesome that actually do something all with out having to turn stuff down - life changing

 

WOW I was sitting on the runway and a train went by cant wait to see all the other goodies I dont know about 

 

One thing I dont understand is how scenery works in XP - sometimes I go to an airport and it says you dont have the scenery do you want to download it now - well I thought I had it all - I downloaded all the countries on the demo installer- guess you dont get it all - you have to happen upon an area that you dont have - which leads me to believe that helps the LM servers if your not using something why give it to you

 

Anyone enlighten me on the full version do you get all of the scenery you need in that package - its pain to do it this way

 

Thank you all for kind remarks  :wink: more cool stuff to come

The best thing about XP, for all it's flaws, is the amount of freeware. 

Aside from spending a little money on some add-on planes and a good cloud add-on (Skymyx-Pro, etc.), you can accomplish most other things without add ons. Headshake plugin is free. Weather plugins are free. Default scenery and night lighting is excellent (and of course free being default). High detail mesh is free. Ground services plugin is free. Thousands of very good freeware airports that are 10x better (and some even pay ware quality) than FSX/P3D default. I could go on and on. 

 

So those that may be new to XP11 but are scared of having to make a huge investment like they did in FSX/P3D, you really don't. It's just different than FSX/P3D in that regard.
