X-Plane 10.30 Update

This latest release represents the largest and most significant X-Plane update to date.
It not only contains numerous fixes and performance improvements, but also some substantial additions to the product itself. Foremost is the inclusion of the new GPS.

The previous versions of X-Plane also included a GPS instrument but it could only do direct-to navigation and could not implement a GPS approach. With the recent introduction of GPS enabled approach systems at many airports, the new GPS in X-Plane will allow customers to practice actual GPS approaches using an instrument familiar to most general aviation pilots. The new GPS is a drop-in replacement for the old X-Plane GPS, so that with one click in Laminar’s PlaneMaker, old aircraft can be upgraded to the more IFR capable version. The X-Plane 10.30 default aircraft come with the new GPS already installed. The new GPS is based on the Garmin 430 and Garmin 530 and both variants are included.

The 10.30 update also includes major improvements to both the weather and scenery systems. The system for the placement of autogen scenery has been refined so buildings, trees, and other objects more accurately reflect their real-world counterparts.

With the recent release of World Editor 1.3 and the Airport Scenery Gateway, hundreds of new highly detailed airports have also been included in this latest and major update to X-Plane 10.

“I am, however, going to tell you that in my personal and professional opinion, there is no software on the planet that can touch X-Plane 10 for realism, in regards to a simulator you can have at home. Huge multi-national, multi-billion dollar corporations like Cessna and government agencies such as NASA use X-Plane in their simulators.”
True PC Gaming

“X-Plane 10 is a huge simulation and I think I have only managed to graze the top of the entire program and from what I have seen I do like X-Plane 10 and I will continue to use it in the future and throughout its development life.”
Avsim

“...However, X-Plane 10, is looks and feels to me hugely impressive, particularly with respect to a realistic impression of flying and the representation of almost the entire world and the sky environment.”
PC Flight, Issue March 2012

Default Scenery

Having installed the software via Steam you only have the main simulator as well as the Seattle region. More scenery has been divided into various free and optional DLCs. Installation of said DLCs is quite simple and is done very fast. -> Guide

We did that because of the huge download size. There are still many many customers out there with a slow internet connection.

À propos de ce jeu

X-Plane 10 Global est la dernière version de ce simulateur, développé depuis 20 ans. Conçu comme un simulateur de vol flexible, X-Plane peut être utilisé avec Windows, Mac et Linux. En plus il dispose d’une structure capable d’ajouter ou changer des parties du simulateur par l’utilisateur. Avec plusieurs add-ons compatibles, il n’y a pas un seul avion qui n’a jamais été simulé dans X-Plane.

X-Plane 10 Global est tellement puissant que il est capable de simuler n’importe quel avion, afin de permettre aux pilotes virtuels la possibilité de piloter n’importe quel avion, tels que des avions de ligne jusqu’aux petits ultralégères. Le réalisme de X-Plane 10 Global est tel q’il a été prouvé son utilisation comme logiciel d’entrainement pour des pilotes réels.

Le nouveau monde virtuel de X-Plane 10 Global est la caractéristique la plus importante par rapport aux versions anciennes du simulateur. Le nouveau monde virtuel dispose des nouveaux paysages qui changeront la façon de voir et de sentir votre simulateur de vol. Développé à partir des données réelles, vous pourrez apprécier presque toutes les routes des alentours. Le nouveau moteur graphique fera découvrir un monde virtuel avec des tonnes des détails et des effets d’illumination du nouveau monde virtuel impressionnants.

Le Contrôle de Trafic Aérien vous guidera à partir de la mise en marche des moteurs jusqu’à l’arrêt à destination. Il contrôlera aussi les avions autour de vous. Ces avions ne seront pas contrôlés de façon artificiel comme sur les autres simulateurs car ils vont interagir avec le monde virtuel de la même façon que votre avion le fait. Ils devront faire face aux mêmes conditions météo que vous, y compris les turbulences, les vents de travers et d’autres. Préparez-vous à profiter du meilleur simulateur, très proche de l’aviation réelle.

X-Plane 10 Global a été développé prenant en compte votre hardware. Si vous avez un ordinateur performant vous pourrez simuler plus d’avions, et vous verrez plus de détails. Mais si vous avez un ordinateur moyen, X-Plane 10 Global sera capable d’afficher plus d’objets sans diminuer la performance.

Features


  • Dynamique de vol des avions réelle grâce à l’utilisation d’un tunnel de vent
  • Comprend 30 avions (Des planeurs jusqu’à la Navette Spatiale)
  • Possibilité de piloter en ligne avec d’autres pilotes
  • Contrôle trafic aérien réel pour les avions du simulateur
  • Terrain détaillé développé à partir de bases des données réelles.
  • Monde virtuel comprenant chaque route, autouroute et voie
  • Nouveau moteur graphique comprenant un nouveau système d’illumination global surprenant (pour la première fois dans un simulateur de vol)
  • 64 Bit optimisée
  • Possibilité d’extension et d’amélioration par l’utilisateur et avec add-ons
  • La version pour l’Europe comprend les aéroports de Nice (LFMN), Paderborn-Lippstadt (EDLP) et Faro (LPFR)

Un tres beau simulateur cependant difficile a prendre en main sans Joystick et en proie a quelques bug et crachs (surtout si vous modifier les parametres, si vous cracher, aller dans les fichiers du jeu et supprimer les fichiers dans le dossier "preference"). Le jeu ne néccessite pas un ordi tres puissant, et vous pouvez le faire tourner en une qualitée maximum, pour le plaisir de vos yeux!

Full disclosure: I'm an actual licensed commercial pilot in Canada. I have about 15 hours of sim time in my logbook, 12 of which were on a commercial and Transport Canada-approved version of X-Plane (the other 3 were on Prepar3D, a version of FSX), and 10 of which applied to my license.

This is a simulator, not a game. You can mess around with the fun fighters and experimental planes, but this is first and foremost a simulator. And what a simulator!

If you're like me, you find fun in a challenging radionav approach. You find fun in managing system failures. You find fun in printing out checklists and having them next to you while handling the simulator. You find fun in education and a job well done. And this is where you get it. You can tweak the simulation accuracy, you can go from messing around doing aerobatics in a fictional plane, or you can turn your garage into a full-sized flight simulator. You can do all this in X-Plane 10, and it has the added bonuses of being more accurate, prettier, and less system-taxing than FSX.

FSX is almost a decade old by now, is a RAM hog, hates graphics cards, is 32-bit, and is still slow and unoptimized. On my machine, it runs terribly. But X-Plane 10 has a 64-bit and 32-bit executable, supports multi-threading, is considerate of your RAM, and looks fantastic.

I spent hundreds of hours with FS2004, FSX, and X-Plane 9. Thanks to them, my instrument and radionavigation training was easy. Thanks to them, I passed the infamous INRAT on my first try. This is a fantastic simulator, simply the best on the market, and the only one worth your money. I can fully recommend this for full price, and I'm a pennypincher.

Avant toute chose, un avertissement : ceci est une simulation "dure", pas un jeu pour tout public, ce qui signifie qu'il faudra surmonter l'interface austère et mettre un peu les mains dans le cambouis pour en profiter à fond.

Mais une fois surmontés ces obstacles, si vous aimez les avions, vous allez être servi. Les avions sont chouettes, les cockpits sont complets et chaque bouton (ou presque) est actionnable, le moteur graphique est bien mieux optimisé que l'antiquité qui animait Flight Simulator X (longtemps la référence du genre) et le ressenti en vol est plutôt pas mal. Pour les décors, c'est juste correct de base, mais on peut télécharger textures photoréalistes et bâtiments gratuitement sur le web; idem pour les avions, il faudra juste un peu fouiner pour trouver l'aéronef de ses rêves ...

Bref : X-Plane est un superbe outil pour les passionnés d'aviation, mais un soft sans doute beaucoup trop compliqué pour les néophytes !

I have been waiting a while to purchase this sim, now that it is on Steam it left me no choice but to pull out my wallet. This has to be as realistic as it gets when it comes to flight simulation. There is a lot to learn and a great community backing this product. While you can set everything up to be off the ground in seconds it leaves the option to make everything as complex as you would like. From startup to landing you can control just about everything.

I am working on my PPL, have been for quite some time. This now affords me the opportunity to learn, make mistakes, and so much more all without the associated costs. My next lessons will only be after many more hours of X-Plane, a great product!

This works with muiltiple monitors, however the recommended setup is to use multiple computers over a network the acheive this. I use stereo vision across three monitors, my only hope is that they can figure out a better way to scale it when using this option, for now I distort my field of view and it works well.

In many of the negative reviews of X-plane there seems to be a mismatch between the reviewers expectations and what X-plane is. If you're looking for aerial combat you'll be far better served by DCS World. Flight simulation whether you go FSX, P3D or X-plane is more hobby than a computer game. If you were going to get into model railways you may start with a small basic train set. If the bug bites, you soon want to add switches, scenery and new locomotives and stock. That's what x-plane is; a flight simulator starter set.

You get a couple of basic aircraft, a sky and a barren planet (inhabited by only deer and birds). X-plane does itself a disservice with most of the included aircraft as they are far from representative of quality of aircraft that are available. X-plane's clouds are stonefish ugly.
All the main simulators have pro's and con's. X-plane's smaller community is very committed and self reliant and there is a smorgasbord of freely available utilities and addon scenery. Some of which are pretty damn awesome considering they are free. You can get a very decent simulator experience with freeware alone. For sure, you will not minutely scratch the surface unless you're prepared to research and learn.

Personally I'd recommend budgeting for an addon aircraft in addition to X-plane. I'd suggest a Carenado HD aircraft, not because there aren't other worthy aircraft, just that if you are starting into X-plane, Carenado are consistently high quality and you're less likely buy something disappointing. If you want to go a bit further, Skymaxx Pro will fix X-plane's underwhelming skies.

Flight simulators may bore your socks off but they may also change your life. X-plane is a starting point for a hobby that may be with you for years.

Awesome. One of the few games I buy at full price without waiting for it to go on sale.
This is a SIMULATOR. It is about as complex as what it simulates, flying an airplane. Expect there to be a learning curve. Expect it to be rather technical. Even for those of us who grew up on the MS flightsims (I started with MSFS 98), it can be a challenge.
You WILL need a pretty hefty system to get the most out of this sim scenery-wise. The scenery itself can go from simplistic, just a few trees and buildings, to....realistic? heavily forested areas, congested traffic jams, city scapes, etc.

Have been waiting a while to buy this on steam (heard a bit back that it was supposed to be coming and I had played on an earlier version many years ago), very glad I bought it, not only is it a realistic simulator with a ton of control configuration options (it might all seem a little daunting at first, but persevere) but I am getting great pleasure out of learning to fly with Xplane...

At the time of writing this review I have just done my first proper fight on Xplane 10 from Blackpool (EGNH) to Manchester (EGCC) - not a long flight (chose the route as these are local locations) but after earlier sims which basically gave you heading waypoints and large visual clues after clicking on a destination this was much more challenging. Used the VOR system to navigate to Manchester, during the flight Xplane taught me how several of the instruments worked that I glossed over playing previous flight simulators on PC.

With my plane drifting a little to the left I had to correct my heading a few times (by a small amount) but eventually arrived at my destination. No clue how to use the local air traffic controllers (yet) I just picked a runway and landed...

Learnt quite a bit from that hour playing the game and I can see it teaching me a lot more, I used to love flight-sims and played a lot but this game made me feel a complete novice again (especially after so long not playing any sims). However lack of arcade-game style assists, popup help and hand-holding made me feel like I really accomplished something in the game when I finally touched down. Been a while since I both enjoyed a game and felt like I achieved something.

Worth the asking price? For me yes :)

edit: I have added some comments to this review, including a very short version of how I used VOR to navigate, system specs and controllers being used.

(this will be edited throughout my experience)

A fantastic purchased of which I am very please with, most definitely worth the 45 pounds.

Whether you are into heavy sims or fun games personally I would say this is both.
The options allow you to change the style of this game completely from a simulator to a game depending on how easy you want to play.

Good

- Excellent physics and useable functions within the cockpit of the aircrafts which feels like you are flying the real thing.
- Many camera views available to best suit your play style.
e.g cockpit, chase cam and others such as cinematic views
- Fully customable key bindings for every action. The use of gamepads and joysticks can also be used and customized.
- Thousands of mods available such as aircrafts, graphical mods, plug-ins, sounds and a whole bunch more.

Neutral

- Graphics are ok (Although mods are available to completely change the visuals of the game to make it look fantastic)

Bad

- Performance can be an issue but of course this depends on your system.
- Sounds aren't the best (although like i previously said mods are available to change this)

I'm writing this review for people who might not know what X-Plane is and may want the opinion of someone who is new to the program.

X-Plane, is of course, a flight sim. It's highly detailed. People say it's the most realistic flight sim ever. Having never flown a plane in real life I cannot attest to that comment, but this program is known to be used by real life pilots for training.
All the DLC in this game is included in that $60 price. You get the whole world... sort of. Not the world as we know it with the unique buildings we all know, but the land masses are very accurate and the airport locations are also very accurate.

The realism, from my perspective playing many different plane sims, is a great place for any pilot to start. There are few variables to change, but they include what kind of damage you can cause the plane through overspeed or over-g. I've seen more brutal flight models in games like Il-2 Sturmovik or Rise of Flight, but I also must bare in mind that those were a different era of planes with their own set of considerations. The damage modeling in X-Plane is not extensive. This isn't a crashing simulator; it's a flight sim. Don't expect to shear your wings off with over speed or any of the extensive modeling you'd find in Rise of Flight. You'll just be greeted with a message accompanied by poorer flight capability.

I do have to make a few comments about the gear I use to play the game.
I have TrackIR, which makes looking around supposedly A LOT easier. A lot of people have to use the hat triggers on their flight sticks and I hear it's not very enjoyable.
I have a Logitech 3D Extreme Pro or whatever it's called. It's got X, Y and Z axes and a slider bar. I can use that flight stick for full plane functionability, though the flight afficianado might want rudder pedals to go with that mix.
My rig is not super powerful: Radeon HD 7770, 16 GB ram and 2.8 GHz x4. The game runs at about 30 to 40 FPS with dips into 28+ sometimes. It's not optimal for this program. I would suggest something better than what I have.

It's mainly fun for me because I can make my own objectives within the simulation, though it doesn't have the premade missions that FSX had. You can also play it like a rogue-like if you want to. For example, try to make your way going North up to the very northern tip of Alaska using airports as "save" points as a sort of no save scumming/ironman challenge. The plus side to this is that the routes you can take are so varied that you will probably not see the same scenery twice.

I say that I recommend it because you can do what I do and cruise your local airports and have a lot of fun trying to get more proficient at flying. You can pretend that the time spent in this program is actually training you to operate planes. Whether or not that is helpful to you is a matter of opinion and situation.

I've been waiting a long time for a realistic flight simulator to be released on Steam and can say I'm very happy with the experience so far. You will need to turn up the graphics to enable HDR and FSAA rendering to get rid of the jaggies. It also takes a bit of time to set up the controls but this is because they are very universal to accommodate any controller you might have plugged in. I'd like to see a few trainer missions added with a built in instructor but there are third party addons for this. The range of planes and free DLC content for all global locations are great selling points and I highly recommend this to anyone wanting to fly something more realistic than an arcade game.

This is not a game!
It is considered to be simulation software. And good at that as well. It has many add-ons available (MS Flight sim x probably has more though) and the flying experience is good.

Pros:
I have my pilots license and the handling of the planes comes close to the real thing. At least if you have good gear attached to your pc (I just have the logitech G940). I think it' s a little bit better than MS flight sim (but comparable).

It runs quite smooth on my machine although my graphics is a little older (GTX550 TI OC). I can't run it at ultra/max settings obviously because of my card.

It is new and still being cared after by the developers and modding community.

Can give a nice view with the right choosen add-ons (scenery/mesh especially).

Cons:
I looked up my local airfield(where I fly) and fair enough it exists. But, that's about it too. Radio communication is way off from what normally is and I see big jets taxiing. I'm not sure if they even manage to take off (~800m runway max).

That the radio communications aren't correct is something I can understand. But jets taxiing on a local airfield is just plain wrong. Devs, please fix that! It's annoying!

Price, yep it is expensive.

Force feedback support. Or lack thereof actually. I did manage to get it working (but with additional add-ons).

Other thoughts:
Setting it up isn't too bad. You can install it and fly pretty fast. You'll want to install 3rd party mods after your first flight though. And that will take some time and bandwidth if you're downloading scenery. Yep it's a big game, but I think it's worth the trouble to actually sit for a moment and set things up the way you want them.

There are probably some other things wrong with the sim. I'll probably discover those when flying some more. And maybe those will get fixed anyway. It looks good and flying is great. IF you're into flying than this might be something for you. Otherwise you might want to think twice.

I love it! I could spend all day just flying planes around the world And even more with helicoptors. Plus since there's a lot mods and other add-ons you can download for the game it just makes it even more fun. If you like aircraft you should buy this for sure. Dash approved.

Unlike FSX, this game is not a huge memory hog. It plays pretty good, even on high settings. My rig is decent, but not top of a line. In this department it is a great addition to flight sims. It is very fun to fly, has decent amount of airplanes right out of the box & a great community behind it to add lots of free planes/scenery & such.

The negative of this game is the airports... All of them are bare, only runways & taxiways. And for you to add an airport will costs you about 20$-30$, unless you can find a free airport created by other users. I honestly do not care if my airports have the correct building locations & even the correct buildings. I just wish all the airports I fly from looked like an airport & not like some weird abandoned parking lots... Unfortunately due to this reason, I do not recommend this game. It really kills the fun for me & I am not paying 20$ per airport, especially since I paid $80 for the game itself.
Another thing is, right out of the box it does not come with training missions & just missions in general. And community does not have too many of them.

After spending hours enjoying this flight sim I must give it a good review and recommend it. I well start off by saying to FULLY enjoy this game you MUST install the world expansions, otherwise your world well be full of water with no map and I see a lot of reviews that are bad because they couldnt figure out they had to install that. Second all planes comes in a stunning 3D model which is viewed in the chaise View, and a 2d cockpit view (which are half ♥♥♥♥♥ done). Only a handfull come in fully detailed inside 3d cockpit which you can look around inside while flying with fully functional buttons/switchs/levers and gages. These Airplanes include all fighter jets, small planes, Boeing 747, Space Shuttle, and some experimental rocketplane. All airplanes are replicas down to starting their engines and the physics of the aircraft in flight, I have been playing flight sims since the 90's and this is by far the best one todate. I can start off in Calgary AB in real time weather and Time and fly to Amsterdam or KLAX or even Moscow this ♥♥♥♥ is legit. There are even options to set up failures with the Aircraft/Engines/Electrical and even bird strikes. There are also a ♥♥♥♥ tones of plug ins too for new aircraft locations and details which are free or paywear x-plane.org is the best one out there. So if your looking for a Flight Sim this is your game

This is not your normal flight simulator.
This is nothing like FSX.

And that is a good thing.

This gives you a challenge without many bells and whistles while being extremely accurate and difficult to learn but after you get the hang of it, it is very rewarding.

It also has the tools bundled in so you can create anything and see if it will fly.

Want to make a cat airplane and try to fly it cross country? Go nuts. It might not even get off the ground, but this is not going to stop you from trying without it looking weird.

Want to have a tiny Cessna tug a massive 747 into the air via a small tow rope? Yep, totally possible (this is a easter egg though!) but be ready for a challenge to get out of that dive after you cut that tow rope.

Want to dive from 35 thousand feet then pull out of it last second? You better hope your wings are strong enough because they WILL snap off (if you do not break apart on the way down).

Yes it looks bare but there are plenty of free addons out there that you can install. Some are pretty, others fix things in the core game, while others are crazy user creations.

The simulator is very much a platform for you to improve and make what you want and it will give you a highly accurate flight model with minimal effort on your part.

Yes it might be silly to spend 60 dollars on a simulator. But if you are into flight simulators, it could be the best 60 dollars you could spend.

This is not for everyone. This is for people who want a challenge.

This is a great engine! Stable and very well made, the problem is... You are just buying the engine with a couple of mediocre airplane models, which only a couple of them have a virtual cockpit. (which are horribly detailed) If interested in having a decent simulation experience, be prepared to buy a couple of airports (at least $20 each) and some aircraft (same, at least $20 each but expecto around $80 for a real good one.)

If you are planning on playing this game stock, I recommend FSX, much much better experience stock. If you got the $$$, go for it! XP10 is a great engine! And with the right investments you will enjoy it deeply. Though I kind of rather play FSX on VATSIM loaded with ORBX and REX, with my PMDG 737 or 777, or the extremely well detailed A2A aircrafts. But that's just me.

Really wanted to like this sim, I was really bummed :c

Great Flight Simulator! The only one on Steam, that features nearly every airport / airstrip on the planet. DLCs might be a pain in the ♥♥♥, so google for some awesome freeware scenery / planes.

Recommend it would be nice if X- Plane included basic detailed airports as some buildings are missing.

i have been playing with xp10 on and off for quite some time.

first off, this is NOT a game. its a simulator. the simulator part is realy good tho.

eye candy: realy good with high end hardware. you are simulating the earth, its not the same as running cod on ultra (realy small map). there are alot of user/3rd party scenery and airplanes out there, for free or for money.

the menu isent user friendly, and it can be alittle overwhelming for new users.
if you like flysims this is probably the best. happy flying =)
