About

X-Plane 10 Global is the latest version of a simulator that has been in development continuously for almost 20 years. This latest version of X-Plane 10 brings numerous improvements and enhancements for PC, Mac and Linux virtual pilots, unleashing the power of modern systems with its 64 bit processing and multi-core support.

Designed to be the most flexible flight simulator it has a fully open structure that allows the enthusiast to change every part. With thousands of compatible add-ons there is no kind of flying craft that is not simulated and there is a whole world to explore.

Boasting a 20 year old pedigree, X-Plane utilizes Incredible cloudscapes to bring the sky to life whilst the ground depicts real-world roads, cities, towns and more to ensure the most realistic flying experience possible. The completely new rendering engine shows the world around you in high detail and with global illumination so lights behave like real lights.

The core is a virtual wind tunnel that creates the most realistic flight modeling available on a desktop. Equally capable of simulating every type of aircraft, the virtual pilot is able to experience the challenges of flying big airliners or tiny ultra-light aircraft. The realism of X-Plane 10 Global is proven by the fact that X-Plane is used as a certified training tool. Each aircraft flies just as it should, from the glider to the Space Shuttle!

Air Traffic Control will guide you from startup to shut-down and also controls the other aircraft around you. Those other aircraft are not robotic as they are in other simulators, but they interact with the world in the same way as your own aircraft does. They will fight the same cross winds and turbulence as you encounter, they will need more runway to stop when the weather conditions are not favorable. Just like real pilots do, you will watch their take-off to be prepared for what your take-off will be like. It’s still simulated but it gets very close to real aviation!

X-Plane 10 Global is built with the future in mind and makes full use of the hardware in your system. If you own a fast multi-core machine you will be able to simulate more aircraft around you and see more details but even with a moderate machine X-Plane 10 Global is capable of displaying a tremendous amount of objects without slowing down.Features

X-Plane 10 Global - 64 Bit reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Hello, I would like to give a "short" feedback on the X-Plane 10.45 (64-Bit): Predically, I am Not a Newcomer to flight simulation-started the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 at that Time and have been using the FSX with numerous Add-ons (FS Global, REX 4, VFR Germany, Global Weather, etc.). This one still looks quite nice, even though it's already quite old, but if you're honest, every cheap game nowadays has better Graphics and runs more fluidly. That's why I've been looking for an alternative for me for a Long time. The Further development of Lockheed Martin "Prepar3D" Is out of the question for me at first, because it is probably a different Target Group than the hobby simulants. See currently available software licensing agreements. And whether Dovetail games will create something Sensible based on the Microsoft flight simulator in the near future, I still doubt. But let's wait and see. I had already tested The X-Plane a few Years ago and also tested it (Demo), but it didn't really away at that time, apart from its good Performance. Now I recently watched a You-Tube video with the current X-Plane Version and was amazed at how good the Flight simulation looks with it. Especially at Night. Then immediately at Steam looked at what the X-Plane costs here and immediately slammed it at the Summer sale. Thought for the Money nothing is broken and I can test the Simulator in more detail. First Impression – well not so good. Although the highest graphics settings, the cockpit textures of the Cessna were totally slurred and my IR tracker didn't work skilfully either. But my FSX looks much better. No matter – fly first and then we see on. Standard Flight launched. Driving, Flying feeling very good. Is somehow more authentic than the FSX. Everything runs much rounder and smoother – like a newer game with a good Graphics Engine. Ok, then selected as the next Home Airfield in The Allgäu with the Expectation that only the Runway is lovelessly placed (since no Addon is loaded yet), but lo and understanding – looks almost like the old FSX with additional scanyery. Well, Machine started, lifted off and then almost no longer dared my Eyes. All the Roads were where they belong, Cars drive around everywhere, the Power Poles and Lines in Place. Every Hill recognizable. The Overall Landscape (Houses, Trees, colours, Mountains) looks much more pleasant and realistic here. And this is mind without Additional Installations – only the Steam Basic Version. Am impressed. Then it becomes dawning – coherent lights and luminous Effects everywhere. Sunset, the Mountains – without Words. In case of Rain finally again drops on the Windshield. Even the runways are not just straight Levels, but also have Bulges, Inclinations depending on the Airfield. great! Back to the Problem with the unsightly cockpit textures and my IR tracker control. Have searched the Internet and found out that it is due to the Aircraft model. With the "King Air B200" Payware plane, the Cockpit is razor-sharp and my Tracker also works perfectly. FAZIT: Should Have switched from FSX to X-Plane a long time ago. Instead of hundreds of Add-ons that never really harmonize with each other, the Basic Version brings almost everything here to get an extremely authentic flying Experience. Faster, nicer, more realistic! (Note: Haven'T tested the X-Plane in detail yet. I'm sure here another Crutch will appear, which makes me a little more negative again, but as written-the first Impression is top ... And I haven't uninstalled the FSX yet;)
