X-Plane 11

Recommended Posts

X-Plane 11 is out, and with Microsoft no longer developing the FS platform; do you have any plans to make the products available for X-Plane?  X-Plane seems to be the future now and they have really stepped up the game!!!

Oh nice!  I would love to see the 777 and 737 work on X-Pane, I would switch from FSX to X-Plane in a heart beat!

The DC-6 doesn't disappoint, she's a real beauty.

 

Looking forward to their next release.

Why is now X-Plane the future. Wait till P3D 64 bit and then decide the 'future' (the future can have more than one platform)

Gents,

 

please don't let this thread devolve into a debate over "which platform is best."

 

The best platform for each of you, is whatever platform works best for you.

 

There is no other point to the discussion.

 

Thank.

Sorry Robert, I just don't like the narrow mindless of only one sim can be the future, when clearly there are others.

My future is already here. FSX:SE, P3D and XP11, all in VR. Yes, there are a couple issues that need to be solved, but man, never been a happier simmer.

X-plane isn't the future, it's the now. P3D might be the future but the last 6 years have been a long wait for something to happen.

I agree with everyone.  There are many great futures in the FS world, X-Pane seems to be stepping up the game and putting out a program that is a real competiter.  I was just wondering if there are any plans to make all of the wonderful PMDG products X-Pane compatable.

I understood that they were planning to bring them over. However, no idea on the timeline.

Was rumors about the 747 would come to xp. But can PMDG say anything about XP and future releases?

I suspect we will need to wait for a stable release of XP11, then the DC-6 will need to be updated, tested and released for XP11. Some time beyond that, I guess we'll hear which of the big 3 airliners will be the first one to come across to XP. It remains to be seen how many people actually switch from XP10 to XP11 - the system requirements are not exactly modest and some people might try the XP11 demo and conclude their hardware isn't up to it (I haven't tried it yet myself so I can't comment). So, PMDG might end up needing to support XP10 and XP11.

? XP11 is way easier on your system than FSX - P3D with all the eye candy

The current XP11 beta is actually not that bad in terms of resource need - if you compare a bare XP10 with a bare XP11 and apply the same rendering settings, XP11 will deliver about the same FPS as XP10 (at least it does on my box). By experience from the XP9 to XP10 cut-over, there was a period of approx. 2 years at the end of which most users had finally switched to the new version. There are various models among different commercial developers out there how to deal with it - most common by now seems to be: provide a patch to enable XP10 models to run in XP11 with the same functionality as in XP10 (most of them only need minor fixes for that), and pack a (paid) upgrade opening up new features offered by XP11 (PBR, dynamic reflections etc.)

It depends - pick a MisterX6 scenery, max out rendering settings, populate the area around with nice Ortho4XP mesh and texture, set a lot of AI traffic and see what it does to your system load :)

I have done everything you stated except ortho - smooth as silk - its awesome - no such thing as a blurred texture or stutter here anyway - just need some high end aircraft offerings other than the obvious few and I mean few - biggest down fall of XP11 but I will wait its worth it no more messing around for me - all set with that

Hi,

We all probably seen the youtube video with Ben (Airline2Sim) where one from the PMDG team clearly indicates a port to X-plane will happen some time in the future.

 

So it would be awesome if a pmdg staff could confirm this in the forums and that would make this ongoing question mark come to rest.

Yea agree with the above especially with Rich,

 

Performance is getting better with each Beta even my old system...to be updated! Soon.

 

But the stumbling block is lack of high quality aircraft...airliners...but let's hope 2017 see other software houses port over or start to support this very good platform.

 

Have to say on a side note does anyone else note that the illusion of height in X Plane is so much better...climb to say three thousand in XP then compare with another platform it appears so much higher...not sure if it is to do with the scenery....well it looks higher to this old timer...

 

Cheers

Lets keep this topic alive. I've love to hear PMDG going on a date again with X-plane as they did with DC-6 :)

Just switched partially to X-Plane 11 and finally I can see my PC's fans work hard not sleeping while on FSX/P3D. My wish is only to see PMDG airlines there

Well. This response is only valid for the 747. Rabso is referring to airliners in general so to speak NGX and 777. And there were plans in the past that they will find their way to X-Plane until we are informed otherwise.

In the same thread you are referring to there are a lot of people requesting an update to the X-Plane roadmap, including myself. It seems we have to wait a bit longer until their (PMDG) research is done if NGX and 777 are possible to import.

 

best regards,

Emmanuel

i really hope pmdg brings the 777 and 747 to x-plane 11, i would pay triple the price just for those 2 aircrafts.i hate p3d, always have. i just hope x-plane brings better season support and i would be good to go.
