Just checking out some of the visual features in the new X-Plane. Looks pretty decent.

Yeah... guess it does.

Just one little thing - trees look kinda weird. From close at least.

How's the performance ?

Yes its something to do with the lighting, when trees are lit from behind. I hope this get fixed as it looks terrible.

I saw this comment from Ben in the dev blog "I think so – I have a short list of major artifacts (sky banding, glowing trees) to try to get to before final."

Yeah, just like in P3D, they are essentially flat "sheets" of semi-transparent textures, so they look a bit weird when shadows are cast on them. The lighting will probably also be improved by the time XP11 final comes out, as mentioned already.

 

Frame rate is about 23-24 FPS on the ground and around the airport, 30+ FPS farther away. That's with most settings maxed.

Man I hope X-Plane gets more scenery of this quality. The sim is gorgeous out of the box but this is a whole new level. Great shots!
