“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

World’s Most Advanced Flight Simulator

X-Plane 10 is the only flight simulation software available on Steam that meets the specification requirements from the Federal Aviation Administration for inclusion as part of an FAA approved simulator. For more information on the software and hardware requirements for FAA approval visit the X-Plane Pro website at: http://www.x-plane.com/pro/landing/

X-Plane 10 is much more than just a game. “It’s what real pilots fly!”

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

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.

Ok, so i have to weigh in on this debate between what sims are the best.
Firstly, about me, I am a real life pilot, and hold FAA and EASA commercial pilot licences (USA and European), and i am a gamer.

About the game: its not a game. its a flight simulation software. do not buy if you are looking for a
"fun game to mess around on and earn steam acheivments etc etc", nor will it teach you how to fly planes or anything of the sort. there is no arcade mode, there are no leaderboards, there are no charachter perks etc.

About the flight simulation programme: I first had my taste of flying a plane on Microsoft Flight Simulator 95 (or 98, i forget) on a crappy little PC with a keyboard and mouse. as i grew up and my interest grew and flight sims developed, i hopped from flight sim to flight sim and i have played ALOT of different ones, and in my proffesional training, i have even used things like lockheed martin's Prepar3D flight simulator with full 737 and A320 cockpit mock ups. For home simming, i dont think anything beats XP10 though. I will be drawing comparisons in my review with 1 other game which this is often compared to - FSX (Microsoft Flight Simulator X/10) (im not even going to compare against "Microsoft Flight", that sim was pathetic....)

The differences

FSX is a flight simulator, and a game in one package. it can both teach you how to fly a plane (atleast the basics) and give you fun missions to complete and rewards you with in game acheivments. It also is able to replicate, rather well, realistic flight dynamics and aircraft performance. however, i feel that FSX is a bit more buggy, alot less "modable" (free 3rd party aircraft were difficult to install in my opinion) and it feels a bit outdated.

XP10 is, i have to admit, a little less user friendly. the menus and interface do not seem as polished etc, but boy is there alot you can do. Free 3rd party aircraft are relatively easy to install, a multitude of plugins exist that you can download, such as ground vehicle tows to push your aircraft back from the stands etc and there just seems to be alot more freedom in the game.
Carrier landings for example. Xplane 10, it was very long winded, very procedural, and a bit tedious if you "just wanted to have a go at planting the damn plane on a deck". and with only the F18 to chose from, it was a bit bland. with XP10, even though the scenario would be unrealistic, i can just load a boeing 747 and click "land on a carrier" and try landing a jumbo on a nimitz carrier.
Weather is very customizable, and can download real time actual weather with a click of a button which is pretty cool.
Loads more stock aircraft to chose from
loads of different scenarios (i believe you can fly on mars if you wanted, that is atleast true of my experience on XP7,8 and 9 so i assume its on 10 too)
You can try and bring down a space shuttle from orbit, and many other things that FSX just cant do with the base programme.

Yes there are issues, yes some of the stock 3D cockpits are a bit naff and not done properly, but i have never really found it such a big deal. and if you want the true realism, be it on FSX or XP10, you wont fly stock aircraft anyway, you would go and buy 3rd party aircraft by proffesional 3rd party Devs that make accurate models and cockpits etc.

you WILL need a joystick and rudder pedals, or at the minimum, a joystick with twist function for rudders. you can play with just a mouse, but lets be honest, that sucks. FSX you can play with a keyboard, but even then, joystick set up rules.

so overall, what would i buy? both. i have both. i use them for totally different things. i use FSX and 3rd party payware aircraft and payware photo scenery to practice VFR aircraft navigation, and i use XP10 to practice aircraft procedures and general handling and flying, or to test myself in all sorts of different aircraft in different scenarious, like finding myself in a middle of thunderstorm in the middle of nowhere with various system failures.

again, i would stress, XP10 is NOT a game. it features "weapons", where FSX does not, but these are only for novelty value. they do not replicate the actual fire control systems or anything like that. This is a flight sim that enthusiasts or proffesionals can use.

If you are looking to buy your first flight sim or you want to learn how fly a plane, go and buy FSX
If you are looking for a world war 2 realistic flight sim where you can fire guns and down planes, go and get IL2 Sturmovik 1946 or Wings of Prey
If you are looking for a arcade combat flight sim, Tom Clancy's Hawx
If you are looking for a realistic combat flight sim with modern fighters, get Lock On
if you are looking for a simulator to practice advanced things on, or experiment, or design your own creations and fly them (basic engineering knowledge required or willing to take the time to research how plane maker works), then this is the sim for you.

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

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.

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

I was really looking up for this simulator, and even though its not really a bad one the fact that there are so few airplanes and no airports whatsoever pretty much ruins it, you have to either buy them apart or look for a free one (if at all) that is probably not going to be very good, they would probably say something like this game being a "professional simulator" to compensate the price and having to buy airports apart but they don't understand that if they are selling it to company (which they do) then maybe they can charge whatever they feel like, if selling it to regular individual customers they should deliver a complete product for the standard price, but instead do whatever they can to squeeze every penny we have out of us, but I guess that's the trend lately. :(

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.

Warning to the average Steam player . . . This is not a game . . . It is a simulation. I do not recommend for the jump in and go type. I like this game alot for its simulation value. X-Plane has a very advanced engine for aircraft simulation and for someone who likes realism . . . this is the air sim for you. If you like checklists prior to taking off . . . this is the game for you. If you like to jump in and go with no thought then don't waste your time with this sim. On the other hand if you want to learn how to fly a plane well enough to consider getting your PPL then download this gem and start learning!

I recently bought this game counting on the fact that it is still being updated (and due to the seemingly lack of updates in MS flight sim x).

However, one thing to address quickly is that there is no convential main menu in this game, and it feels like hitting a wall. Also there is no inherent lesson/tutorial mechanism that helps learning the ropes.

Everything apart from the game being not-so-rookie-friendly seems perfectly fine. I'll update the review in future.

X-Plane : Right out of the box (as it were) the 64 bit version beats hands down in speed and looks FSX. FSX looks dated (it is) and needs a significant cost investment to bring the ground textures up to some reasonable level. Still, no matter your system performance will suck if you intend to crank up the textures. Now first big minus in XPlane - NO SEASONAL TEXTURES!. Go ahead, fly in Europe in winter. Look - summer textures,lol. So you'll need to get a program for this huge deficiency.

There is a growing body of payware for X-Plane and some fabulous planes such as the 777. Also the payware scenery, though nowhere near FSX is starting to provide the necessary content to bring realism.

But here is the HUGE NEGATIVE of X-Plane: AI traffic addons and ATC. ATC in FSX provides immediate access to the communication settings re Tower, Clearance etc. for each airport. Not so in X Plane where you're guessing where they are. After you enter your flightplan you're sitting there with nothing. Better find out what those numbers are!As far as AI traffic programs - there is one populating AI traffic program World Traffic for X-Plane and it does a poor job. Suffice it to say it is not even worth getting as it is not even in the league for what is for FSX. FSX however, has Ultimate Traffic, MyTraffic, Traffic 360 - all superb AI traffic programs which bring life to you airports. In combination with the P'poor ATC implementation you will be left wanting. If anyone in X-Plane ever brings these up to FSX standard then X-Plane will shine for sure. Right now, it is a huge MINUS.

Another minus is the counterintuitive process to set up your joystick, pedals etc. Bloated menu system is a mess.

Another negative: AIRPORTS. Huge database for FSX right out of the box. In X-Plane you're left to land on thousands of empty pavements. This however, pails in comparison to the poor plane AI and ATC.

Unfortunately, without a capable ATC and a comparable AI Traffic program to FSX I cannot recommend this program except for VFR flying and unrealistic flight simming generally. Shame because one would have thought, by now, someone would have stepped forward with an Ultimate Traffic, MyTraffic, Traffic 360 type addon. This issue can't be overstated. It just is an ESSENTIAL aspect to the flight simming world not cured by the above noted program or the resident AI program. Who will step forward?

I bought MS Flight Sim X and was somewhat disappointed in the graphics (understatement), so then when I saw this on sale for 50% off I jumped on it. The graphics are definitely much better as well as the realistic feel of the simulation. Trying it out, I started at a random airport in Texas and flew up to Green Bay, WI. Once I was in Wisconsin I recognized where I was without even having to look at the map! Granted I haven't spent too many hours with this yet, but I'm already definitely satisfied with this game.

This is a flight SIMULATOR NOT A GAME! You may need some time to set it up but one you get the game going, it's great, especially with 3rd party addons. One major item I reccomend is PilotEdge addon.

Not bad, it's pretty good, needs more addons for world wide scenery, missing local landmarks in Sydney, obviously only those familliar with the area would notice. Hope they update scenery soon, although it's very good with what there is.The simulator is enjoyable, if you're a flight sim fan. Needs AI air traffic for more realism, perhaps it does, I just haven't found how to get it yet?

This is THE simulator to get if you want to do any realistic flight training!

Having a real good flight model affected by weather and spectacular visuals it is perfect for running any scenario that needs perfecting. Don't expect a walkthrough or missions, this is all about flying and it's up to each pilot to set it up for the purpose in mind.

Be sure to check out all the modifications and extenstions that can be added, the obvious source for that is forums.x-plane.org. I would start with reading a forum thread on which addons to get. Carenados DLC aircraft is also really good and is a must to have over the included aircraft, which are quiet basic in comparison.

All in all, this is the best simulator out there right now, and it's growing to fill the gap after FSX.

I'm running the STEAM version of X-Plane 10. My Rig is an AMD FX 600 6 Core processor 3.50 Ghz boosted to 3.80 (Corsair Liquid cooled); EVGA GT 740 4Gb Graphics card; 12Gb (3x4Bg Corsair Vengeance) RAM.
Until I was given some STEAM games vouchers for Xmas I was 'flying' Microsoft FSX Gold Edition, with add-on buy=ware helicopters, as well as add-on scenery, and was pretty well happy with it. However, since buying the STEAM X-Plane 10 I very rarely fly FSX at all now. Maybe it's the novelty of having a change from FSX or it could be that I generally prefer the features and realism that X-Plane 10 gives. I'm not fully sure yet as it's still early days for me but I intend to stick with X-Plane for the forseable future at least.
I don't want to knock FSX too much though as, once you are able to tweak the cfg file correctly & eventually find the right settings for your own pc rig it 'flies' pretty well, and with certain add-on scenery it can look pretty damn good too.
Likiewise with X-plane 10, I'm still learning how to get the best perfomance for my own pc spec, but I do like the fact that all of the 'trial and error' spec changes can be made in-game from the more than comprehensive settings options. One problem I do have at the moment is low frame rates. I use a 32 inch HD tv as my monitor, but tend to have to drop the in game screen resolution from 1920 x 1080 down to 1280 x 720 to get decent frame rates ie (20 Fps+). But that's something I'm prepared to put up with. for the time being at least.
Overall, after downloading a purchased add-on Bell 407 helicopter, I'm spending most of my personal free time flying the Bell 407. Great fun and great realsim & would recommend.

The top proper flight-sim.

CAVEAT EMPTOR: this is a purchase that should be considered only for hardcore flightsim fans.

You're looking at $60 starting and you should really consider payware stuff, as well. In additon, the GA offerings are wonderfully modeled, but the military stuff isn't.

I love it and am addicted to it.

Recommendation:
Under setting->rendering

Put number of roads to something higher.
(You get more roads where they exist in the real world)

Put number of objects to something higher.
(You will get *generic* boxes (buildings) at those roads)

Put detail distance to medium.

Unclick compress textures.
Put texture to high.

In the beginning I found the planes cockpits to be fuzzy.
Some really are fuzzy or they are meant to be used with 2d cockpits.
But mostly it was because by default the texture-settings where set low and where compressed

I also lacked filled road networks and buildings.
I didn't see the roads I was accustomed to.
The data is there for the roads. You just need to crank them up or only major highways will be shown.
The cities look like gray patches by default Both the roads and object setting changes this.

Quite a few of the stock planes are ugly.
I would recommend the two-engine general-aviation plane Baron)

Things I like to do with X-plane.
Find interesting mountain-chains to fly around.
The topology is from the real world and it generates a *plausable* looking world on the fly.

Fly around my closest airport and see if I can find where my house would be on the road network ad by the rivers.

Make flightplans, read about north-atlantic routes, learn about standard departures and standard arrivals (SIDs and STARs).
Look up real world airports and their charts.

I like to plan plausable and *real* flight-plans that my preferred airline uses (SAS).


The world is pretty barren and the airplanes are as have been said, besides some smaller planes sub-par.
I've bought two planes and two helicopters. A Boeing 777. An Airbus A350 XWB. A Bell 407 helicopter. And a RR beta 2 helicoter that seems to be used in real training for helicopter pilots.

I would recommend looking to fill the mostly empty airports with building by downloading them from gateway.x-plane.com.

There is a lot of scenery and free add-ons.
Just search for scenery and x-plane.

Applications that I use for plight-planning:
* EFASS - it has real world weather-engine and a generator for weather that is plausable.
It has SIDs and STARs. And online connection.

As you fly your plane you can watch a sattelite-map where you would be in the real world.
(Not just the blocks and generic textures and objects that are in X-plane).

A great resource for free addons and forums and to buy planes is x-plane.org.

Remember. It is not a game that has a goal.
It gives you the tools to fly close to realistically all over the world.

It gives access to GPS, VORs, DMEs, NDBs to naviate with.

Even without EFASS you can use real weather and real time of day.
Or choose a weather and time of day.

There is a free demo to try out at x-plane.com.

Pros:
* Realistically calculated flight-dynamics
* The whole world is covered with topological data
* Low intensity
* Educational
* There basic software is used together with a lot of other components for real flight training for the real world
* Terrain that is not cartoonie
* Can look beautiful
* Not just a game but a hobby

Cons:
* Not one really detailed plane up to modern standards. I'd love to see at least one really deeply simulated GA aircraft and one deeply simulated and visually good looking airliner.
* The terrain is generated and not as in the real world unless you buy or get additional scenery
* It is quite taxing on the resources at high quality simulation and visuals (Mostly CPU but also GPU)
* Uses all cores
* Addicting (Just one more plane...) ;)
* Not an action-game at all. Unless doing perfect landings is your view of intensity
* The fighting features in it is old and arcade-like. It is mainly a civilian aircraft simulation.

Conclusion:
All in all it has as many hours of entertainment as you want.
It focuses on realism.
You will probably want at least one payware plane of good quality.
Remember to up the rendering settings.
Look for your airports and download them.
Great community.
Educational.
Taxing on your hardware.
A real simulator.
Not really a game but a hobby.

X-Plane is an excellent flight simulator with a great deal of potential, and in it's current state, it is absolutely worth purchasing depending on the type of flying you're interested in.

Out of the box, it is lacking seasonal textures, and upper-level weather. However, easy to install mods are available for both, including Winter_Package for seasonal textures, and XPGFS for upper-level weather. Wind transitions are fairly smooth, however cloud transitions are less so. Add-on weather engines are currently in development.

Terrain graphics are excellent, and upgradeable with free mods, and paid add-ons. Airport scenery is generally complete as far as runways and taxiways, but buildings are frequently missing. This can also be rectified by downloading free scenery mods, and using the WED tool available from X-Plane's website, it is easy to build your own.

X-Plane is in active development.

Included aircraft vary from terrible to okay, however this is normal for flight simulators. Add-on aircraft are very good.

Before buying X-Plane, FSX, or even P3D it's important to understand that all simulators are underfeatured out of the box, and add-ons, generally paid are needed to reach the sims full potential. The base simulator can generally be considered one part of the simulator 'system'.

That said, with one paid add-on(a Carenado aircraft), and a few free ones, X-Plane surpasses FSX for GA flying, and with an improved weather engine and more add-on airliners will surpass FSX for airliners as well.

Don't buy add-on aircraft off steam, insteady buy from a flight sim website(x-plane.org, for example), or direct from the developer(carenado.com , for example). Better support from the developer is available this way, as is a larger variety of aircraft. Most add-ons aren't available on steam, both for FSX and X-Plane. FSX in particular has a great deal of excellent add-ons, none of which are on steam.
