X-Plane 11.01r1 is now out

Recommended Posts

Release Notes: X-Plane 11.01 is a bug-fix patch and minor update to X-Plane 11.00. Linux users can use this version with the DVD as their DRM. Key fixes were made to the lighting model, the FMS for plugin use, and the default aircraft.

Is this REALLY an official release? It's called 11.01RC1 not R1, and checking for updates without the "beta" checkbox checked does not update anything.

Thanks for the heads up Arwen.  Since this is a RC release, we need to have the beta checkbox checked, in order to take advantage of the improvements and fixes.  I see no issue using it as it's made things a little better now.  Doesn't hurt to stay up to date. :biggrin:

So if I check the beta box, and for whatever reason there is a problem with the release, can I run the update again without the box checked to allow me to go back to 11.0?

Here is a short video of the new LFPG - Charles de Gaulle Airport. 

Not bad for "default scenery", not bad at all 😉

I am somehow confused: I ran the installer this morning and found that (afterwards) I now have two CDG-Airports in my Custom-Scenery-Folder. One is named AEROSOFT Charles de Gaule and the other LFPG - Paris Charles de Gaule. The later one was obviously installed today while I ran the installer.

So, why are there two different sceneries and why are they in the Custom Scenery Folder when LFPG is now updated with the default scenery?

Yes, i`m confused too. "LFPG Paris - Charles de Gaulle" is 45MB big and "Aerosoft - LFPG Paris CDG" is 366KB big.

This is an error on Laminar Research´s part, and they are aware of it.

You can safely delete the "Aerosoft - LFPG Paris CDG".

The LFPG Paris - Charles de Gaulle is 45 MB because it contains the .xml files that WED needs to show it. You can load it in WED and marvel at how many objects and entities are on that airport ;-) You can also delete those .xml files if storage space is a problem for you, but the installer will download them again (as it does with all files it thinks are missing).

In the future (when we are allowed to upload WED 1.6 data to the Gateway) I will upload LFPG to the Scenery Gateway and it will become a normal "global airport". At that point LR will remove the file from the Custom Scenery folder.

Cheers, Jan

Hi Jan, are you plannig to remove static AC that remain in some of your sceneries? Don't know if you're still in charge of KLAX but there are some United 744s left.

Yes, I am definitely going to work those airports over one by one. I am on ZBAA right now, making it fully compatible with XP11. KLAX will be next, then OMDB - then I will turn to the bigger German airports...

Cheers, Jan
