Where are the addons?

Recommended Posts

Is XP11 in the FS doldrums?  Where are all the native XP11 aircraft addons?  Does anyone know of confirmed upcoming addons?

I am really curious about the soon released Xenviro update. Hope it comes soon. And of course anything Carenado. Got the 208 and love it. I was over on the p3d forum and it seems they have new stuff coming out every hour :laugh:

Nice list - I guess some devs are redoing their xp10 works completely.

I did see the AFM mooney ovation wip at the org - they are at alpha - I believe it's the first addon that will have GTN support

Quiet a dew changes to get some aircraft to XP11 standard, and I think some are waiting on 11.1 just in case so they dont have to do it again. Especially with turboprop airctaft.

As said above, it looks like 11.10 will include a bunch of changes, including tweaks to engine and flight modeling. I guess many devs might be waiting for that. 

I'm not sure if this is arriving with 11.10 or not, but another big change on the horizon is support for Vulkan and Metal graphic API's. That will apparently require a re-write of anything that generates 3D content in the sim, like weather addons. Users could still run un-modified plugins with OpenGL, but if Vulkan/Metal has faster frame rates (it should), then there will be a natural demand for support in that graphics mode.

Right, and it looks like the LR default G1000 is still a ways off.  That I'm looking forward to - especially since the default Vision jet has horrendous avionics

I believe the G1000 is still coming in 11.10, which should enter beta soon.

I there a secret to the limit placed on number of download at x-plane.org, I am finding it frustrating to getting my sim loaded up. I can't download anything from those links until tonight late. I think the problem I was having is the download manager setting of 8 connections being counted as 8 downloads at a time, I have reduced this to 1 to see if that was the issue.

Sorry somewhat off topic, but I find the Org limits frustrating, three days to get all the freeware Norway airports....annoying.

This should help. From the Org:

Download manager limits

Daily (24 hour period, not midnight to midnight) limits have been put in place for each group in order to prevent abuse and downloads from automatic scripts:

Community Leaders: 50/day
Old Timers: 50/day
Members: 40/day
Novice: 30/day
New Member: 20/day (You fall in this group when you first register)
Awaiting Authorization: 0 (means you joined and didn't reply to the authorization email)

Important: Do not use any downloading software. They use several streams at once and you may reach your limit after only 2 downloads

I have the original LES DC-3 and I'm really looking forward to this update. I fly the new VSKYLABS DC-3 too, which is an XP11 version and very good for something that doesn't use plugins. There's room for two takes on a classic bird like this in a flight sim. They both come at it from different angles.

Some of the best payware helicopters have already been updated for XP11, like the X-Trident Bell 412 and Dreamfoil Bell 407.

Thank you sir, I did not see this. But my guess turned out to be correct, they don't measure the # of files but rather connections.

OK this is complete BS but sorry.

Today, I just started as my new 24 hr period started...I got 25 downloads using Download Manager set to ONE connection. I'm only getting half of the quota, this is really ticking me off. I only just got started, finished off Norway and started Iceland and only got 5 from there.

What a bloody useless system!

Maybe a second connection is started automatically by the browser and then stopped? Hard to say what is happening.

In any case, you could avoid using the Download Manager for X-Plane.org, so that you should have no problems reaching the 50 downloads. After all, they're all small files that require a few minutes each (at most) to download, unless you're on dialup.

Or maybe you still had 15 downloads registered in the past 24 hours, and only 25 were left.
