Xplane 11.50

Recommended Posts

I still think it's coming soon, however it will be an early beta and probably be frustrating to use. Recently, I ran into somewhat severe performance issues (probably due to the combination of UHD Mesh, Traffic Global and SFD Global), and 20% better performance will just be a drop in the sea. Currently I am looking at 25FPS in the default Cessna at LAX and I’m not happy. Really looking forward to see how FS20 utilizes the same system. May well be worse, but I really wanna find out.

Got a hunch this particular beta will break the bug record - I envy you brave souls.

The point of the private beta is to eliminate the vast majority of the bugs.

Perception implies they will fall further and further behind the competition at this rate with no communication to the customers.

Exactly why I have a 2nd installation of Xplane11 on my PC, IIRC LR recommends to do so for Beta's.

The "competition" will take a while to build out a fleet of great aircraft models comparable to what we can fly right now in XP.

For the next year or two at least, it's going to be a decision about how much you care about what the world looks like outside the cockpit, vs. having exactly the type of aircraft you like to fly.

I have a feeling that MS reached out to some of the aircraft designers like PMDG so that the default aircraft will include some of their magic. I highly doubt that the "competition's" default aircraft will behave like FSX or even P3D.

Legacy code is still in, have no doubt that it won't take them a super long time to provide the same addons. Now, if they were to redo them to take advantage of the new technology that's another thing.. But i don't think they will, especially at first. People will be thirsty for more advanced planes right away.

Either way, Austin should start to consider MSFS competition because where MSFS takes, XP does not. Which might or might not be financially acceptable for them too. You might say Austin can get (and probably does) money elsewhere and i agree, but to which extent, who knows?

Yes, but the issue is that not all of us care about PMDG modern airliners. We're not all tubeliner fanatics.

Me, I'm a simulator helicopter pilot for half of my flying. And I like vintage bush planes like Beavers and Pilatus Porters. That's going to take a while to show up in the "other" sim, and we still don't know if the "other sim" flight model is as good as that in XP.

Indeed...

helicopters are still a strong point of X-Plane.

There's that amazingly detailled Bell 412, and someone told me a recently released R-44 has the flight dynamics tuned byt Brett ( from the .Org ) ...

Uninstalling flightsims is a temptation I can never resist...

Well? Depending on what you are looking for. And I'm not looking to spend $40+ on carenado garbage that doesnt work , and people now complaining about the tbm, oh we have the zibo. Hmmm,  that's it? Everything else freeware is ported from xplane 10, with no 3d cockpit, or no VR support. And the other aircraft, I have no interest in. 

Msfs will have exactly what I need, the tbm, caravan, 172, a320, the cessna jet. I'm good thank you.
