  1. It’s probable best not to assume someone else filed the bug report. Besides, the more reports they get the higher the priority.
  2. I’ve also been curious about when ActiveSky will come out with an Xplane 12 version. On one hand, the weather in Xplane 12 is very well done (with improvements coming, no doubt), but ActiveSky could bring it to a whole new level. I remember in FSX when they added particles, or some kind of tech, to see the clouds go by over the wings.
  3. Ben wrote that the AA issue is in the lighting model. Some work is still needed there.
  4. I don’t think it keeps track of historical weather but I would be glad to be proven wrong.
  5. Yep. That’s correct. You need to set up the AI as @Pivot described. But there will be a performance hit. Traffic Global is a great solution once released for Xplane 12 (or if you want to hack it yourself).
  6. @Murmur This is an excellent post and discussion. You point out what I think is indeed a development perspective for Xplane. They didn’t simply upgrade the visuals but tied it to the underlying flight model and intent of the sim. Xplane 12 really is a leap ahead for the franchise (please note I’m comparing between versions of the same franchise, not any other franchise.)
  7. I’ve not tried the Simheaven stuff yet. Wondering about FPS toll. What is lost with disabling the detail and extra layers?
  8. See the blog: https://developer.x-plane.com/2022/09/x-plane-12-early-access-is-here/?fbclid=IwAR3ISGexnKPfCQZ5DEujcnfe3AGnAQ9ltuuGEh-ZOq0pY1fz3KEJ4SH-Cac
  9. It takes a bit of practice. Follow the instructions by @Murmur and use subtle movements of the yoke when trying to get on the step. Austin’s article and videos about it makes it clear that the action of the plane on the water is pretty accurate.
  10. I’ve seen this also. Need to send in a bug report.
  11. Shadows in the beta are only rendered for objects close to your plane, about 1000 ft.
  12. Haven’t seen that. Do you see it all the time? Please submit bug report.
  13. The beaches are a known problem. See release notes: https://www.x-plane.com/kb/x-plane-12-00-release-notes/
  14. Of course there’s room for improvement but this is a massive improvement over Xplane 11 and it’s only an alpha.
