  1. Hi all I’ve been working on a comprehensive list of high quality XP11 aircraft. If newcomers from P3D or other sims want to fly a particular aircraft in X-Plane 11, this list should tell you if it’s possible. If you have any suggestions or additions to the list, let me know. I’m updating it weekly for new products anyways. I’ve also included a small selection of useful plugins at the bottom of the sheet for newcomers. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EWIjA978VOiJ2JpCgbLtasnDH_vuZThVNbeDF05lTC0 SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
  2. After CaptainSims release of their Boeing 757 and some news about an incoming update back in February, everything went incredibly quiet around this much anticipated project. Many people have since been wondering what had happened to the update that, in posts they made earlier, seemed right around the corner.

  4. RIP Flight Sim World: Closure Announcement APRIL 23 - DTG CRYSS It is with great sadness that we announce the future closure of Flight Sim World. As you know, we always had a strong ambition to bring a new experience into the established world of flight simulation, one that deliberately overhauled both the flying experience and the graphical fidelity, offering new ways to fly. Unfortunately, after many detailed discussions, we regrettably don’t see a clear direction that will allow us to keep to the development time we’d want, alongside the player numbers we need. So, slightly before a year since we first launched into Early Access, we have made the intensely difficult decision to fully scale back all future development on Flight Sim World and remove it from sale on 24th May. We’re sure you have lots of questions, we hope we’ve answered a few here. FAQ What happens to Flight Sim World if I already own it? It will remain in your Steam library, available to play in its current format. Will the sim be taken off sale? Yes, and we’re working to the date of 24th May 2018. We want to give anyone who does not yet own a copy of the sim enough time to get a copy and keep it safe in their library for future play. What will happen to any Add-Ons? Add-Ons will also come off sale, but those you already own will still also be in your Steam library. We hope you can give the team the respect they deserve for their tireless hard work to date. Please know that all of us here at Dovetail hold flight simulation, the creators of add-on content, and especially you, the community for this sim, in incredibly high regard for both your support and time with Flight Sim World. - The Flight Sim World Team SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://steamcommunity.com/games/389280/announcements/detail/3400657079148405506 NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
  5. I saw you guys on the show were pretty excited to see this. Now enjoy some exterior shots of it. It looks wonderful.

  6. From AirDailyX: 'Thats right folks, you can purchase a pre-release version of the Milviz T-38C Advanced Trainer for 50% off. This is the catch however, being able to purchase the aircraft is contingent on you putting the T-38C though its paces, both as a simulation (flight behaviour, systems functionality, modelling & textures etc) and also as an product (installation, compatibility with other products). Then they want you to tell them where the aircraft falls short. The Milviz team will set up a special private forum area for you to communicate your findings directly to their project lead. To me this is a heck of a bargain and you get to fly the premier Air Force jet trainer for half the cost.'

  8. SimCoders release their REP for the default B58 Baron for X-Plane 11. This adds many new features into the Baron and makes it into an A2A style quality aircraft.

  9. 'I just zipped the Beaver XP11 version, which includes the ground handling improvement. I was able to take off and land fully controlled in cross wind conditions up to 12 kts. 15 kts gets tricky though, but doable. I also created proper icons and aircraft information and fixed the overboost of manifold pressure, which came up with the XP11 version. Should be available later this week.'

  10. Developers from the amazing freeware BetterPushBack plugin, HotStart, have teamed up with Leading Edge Simulations (the guys behind the amazing Saab for X-Plane) to create this amazing TBM900. 'The goal for release time as it stands is early summer of this year, so the wait won't be too long and we'll continually post updates here to ensure you can keep up to date.' It should compete well with Carenado's TBM850 available from here: http://store.x-plane.org/TBM-850-HD-SERIES-_p_481.html#tab-4 Check out the links below SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : http://forums.x-pilot.com/forums/topic/14259-announcing-the-socata-tbm-900/ NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://fselite.net/news/hotstart-socata-tbm900-announced/
  11. Justflight shows previews of their upcoming conversion of their TB-10 tobago and TB-20 Trinidad for X-Plane 11 on their facebook page. I do not own the P3D version, but it has very good reviews. This should become another must have for X-Plane GA Flyers when it releases.

  12. Sunskyjet's Detroit Metro update. Looks amazing even if it was a payware airport, but of course it's free! For those of you who haven't tried their KPHL, it's amazing and works in V4.

  13. An X-Plane user called Adrian recently announced a Zibo-style modification to Carenado's ageing C152 II for X-Plane. It looks to be really promising, as a C152 pilot myself I am certainly looking forward to it. Until Justflight's C152 arrives for X-Plane, this seems to be a great alternative. Can't wait.

  14. Add Aerosoft Stavanger X to the list, working fine. Just change the install path to your Sim's directory and it works fine. The installer was last updated for v2, however it worked fine in v3 and now works in v4.
  15. An older scenery but still a scenery none the less is working: Aerosoft's Stockholm Arlanda for those who haven't yet upgraded to ORBX's offering. Just copy and paste your Prepar3D.exe and rename the copy fsx.exe (you should all do this anyway, as some of the older installers need to recognize an fsx.exe), then point the installer to your sim's main directory. I'm installing more sceneries so will keep updating. note: if someone has got UK2000's Gatwick to work with UK2000 libraries, please tell me how, my sim crashes if I select Gatwick so I have uninstalled it for the time being.
