X-Plane

11.34r119 January 2019

Ultra-realistic flight simulator (release candidate).

Overview

X-Plane is one of the world's most comprehensive, powerful flight simulators, and has the most realistic flight model available for personal computers. It comes with subsonic and supersonic flight dynamics, sporting aircraft from the Bell 206 Jet-Ranger helicopter and Cessna 172 light plane to the supersonic SR-71 and Space Shuttle. X-Plane comes with 35 aircraft spanning the aviation industry (and history), and several thousand more are freely downloadable from the internet.

  • X-Plane scenery is world-wide, with scenery for the entire planet Earth between 74 degrees north to 60 degrees south latitude. We also have MARS scenery! (thanks to the Mars Orbiting Laser Altimeter, which mapped that planet's elevation). On Earth, you can land at any of over 33,000 airports, as well as test your mettle on aircraft carriers, helipads on building tops, frigates that pitch and roll in the waves, and oil rigs.
  • Weather is variable from clear skies and high visibility to thunderstorms with controllable wind, wind shear, turbulence, and microbursts! Rain, snow and clouds are available for an instrument flying challenge, and thermals are available for the gliders! Real weather conditions can be downloaded from the internet, allowing you to fly in the actual weather that currently exists at the location of flight!
  • X-Plane also has detailed failure-modeling, with multitudes of systems that can be failed manually or randomly, when you least expect it! You can fail instruments, engines, flight controls, landing gear, or dozens of other systems at any moment.
  • While X-Plane is the world's most comprehensive flight sim, your purchase also comes with Plane-Maker (to create your own airplanes) Airfoil-Maker (allowing users to create airfoil performance profiles), and Weather Briefer (to get a weather briefing before the flight if you use real weather conditions downloaded from the internet).
  • X-Plane is also extremely customizable, allowing you to easily create textures, sounds, and instrument panels for your own airplanes that you design or the planes that come with the sim.
  • X-Plane's accuracy (in flight model), scope (in aircraft and terrain coverage), versatility (in aircraft type and weather conditions), add-on programs (in aircraft and scenery editors), customizability, downloadable aircraft, and downloadable scenery makes it the ultimate flight simulation experience for Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms.
  • Be sure to turn on the beta option in the installer before you run it to get the beta!
  • The demo contains a limited scenery area to keep the download size reasonable. It will run for 10 minutes before it begins to ignore the user's input, at which point the simulator must be restarted to fly more.

What's new in X-Plane

Version 11.34r1:
  • Crash using default FMS in a custom Aircraft
  • Crash setting up weight & balance screen
  • Restored engine location coordinates for Jets and Rockets in Plane Maker

There is one Flightsim for the Mac, XP, so this is the best one. Flightgear has potential but still some way to go. hopefully they keep it up. That said, xplane is a piece of crap. there was never a stable version, and there probably never will be one. this is the authors 14th attempt to deliver something without introducing silly new bugs over and over again. Maybe he's gone completely bananas, who knows. But for sure he has no knowledge of software development, quality management and customer care. sadly enough.

So much potential but it should come with the ability to work out of the box with various control sticks. I have a Saitek stick and have to manually configure everything...to the point where I don't want to fly with X-Plane. MSFS worked out of the box with my stick so I'll stay with them even though it's an inferior flight sim.

It didn't take too long to configure X-Plane 10 Demo to work with the Saitek stick I have. This flight sim is so much better than FS2004 and FSX it's not even funny. It runs like a champ on my 2006 1,1 MacPro with (flashed) ATI 5770 GPU. Wish there were a DL option for the entire set but I'll be buying via mail order shortly.

It is incredible how the software developers manage to implement or even re-implement new bugs in very new version, be it beta or so-called stable. This demo installer after heaving installed everything eats 37 % CPU on a i7 2.6GHZ doing nothing! Programming an installer is not so difficult as a flight sim... so: tons of features, pretty much worthless for serious flying with all these annoying bugs

Is there an alternative, though? I am willing to accept some trouble when it comes to software as complicated as this.

Version 10 doesn't run in PPC anything, MU hasn't updated that part of their listing.

How many Macs have DirectX 9 though ("DirectX 9 compatible video card required")?
