Now available: Twentynine Palms Airport for X-Plane

http://store.steampowered.com/app/339399
Twentynine Palms Airport is the first project of our scenery development company 29Palms Scenery Design and JaraNet for X-Plane 10. They have set a whole new level of detail and realism with this scenery, based on many references from the real airport. Along with a huge library of high quality 3D objects, the software forms the basis for all prospective 29Palms sceneries. Covering over 250km² with high resolution satellite imagery, the scenery provides a lot to explore.

“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

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

Its unfortunate that software with a very small, very dedicated, and very hard working team come up with a solid beautiful product, but ultimately shoot themselves in the foot with lofty ambitions and an inability to prioritise.

It is a difficult product to review, as just with plenty of other games and various software or sim packages in the past, there is the demonstration product (which isnt what im reviewing here) and then there is the 'finished' product. Laminar have fallen into a newly created catch all (trap from a consumers perspective) of having a fantastically immersive and pretty demonstration product showing how well their ideas work, but then trip themselves up by releasing a 'commercial' product at a lofty $80 with a long list of features, the fully working parts of this sim, are fantastic, but are all of the same stock standard functions of any other flight simulator.

Laminar work very very hard on getting THEIR standard features of their flight sim working, and fastidiously update them as they work futher on the product... BUT......

The problem comes when you look at the list of features that are meant to be unique to X-Plane, and thats when you run into a long slew of inherently broken, unworked on, promised, or somewhat-working-low-priority-to-fix issues, that on enquiry are met with a slew of 'Well it IS just a pre-release beta version, of course there are going to be issues'

What you get for your $80 - is the Demonstration area which has been spit polished up the wazoo to make sure you get a feel for what the X-Plane world is meant to be, and a handful of beautifully detailed aircraft with 3d cockpits. However, its not just a plug in the joystick and go type sim. In this regard, its supposedly meant to be a little fiddly working out how to start this and switch on that, including working nav and com (debateable - ATC was an original 'selling point' feature from day one, that has remained inherently broken since day one) systems which add to wonderful immersion.

What its not meant to refer to, is having to fiddle around with background simulator options just to make an aircraft flyable in the first place (it took about an hour of googling various unrelated things to find a fix for utterly uncontrollable pitch flutter for instance) and often requires fiddling about when loading another aircraft. Thereby breaking the previously aforementioned immersion again.

There is a decent sized community providing plenty of aircraft, but these are fairly badly organised, and doing a general search for specific aircraft generally brings up masses of repaints of aircraft, and you WILL download plenty, but it will take a few error indications trying to open the aircraft in the game before you figure out that most of the files youve downloaded are only repaints of a stock aircraft you dont have, and is no longer available. One particular person has worked wonderfully hard on some fantastically detailed F-14s and F/A-18s for instance, but theyre all based off an airframe made in the in game tool, with little internal detail, and the external detail it does have, doesnt really mean much when the AI flying it lands by lining up a beautiful approach, shutting down engines about 50ft above the runway, then nosediving straight into the ground. (According to most of what i can find, this is either - completely normal/user fault for not creating routes for an aircraft theyre not going to fly/non existant (always followed by a video showing one of the demonstrator aircraft on a demonstrator airfield)/it IS beta you have to expect problems/your computer is too slow/youve got a third party mod not compatible with your ai) - Occhams Razor would say - games broke.

Easier to review the scenery outside of the demo areas or the hideously overpriced payware available - Its basically crap. The huge downloads for regional scenery are little more than big bump maps overlaid with ICAO points, overlaid with generic objects. Melbourne, for instance, has a 1.5km tall 'Eureka Tower' somewhere in the middle of hawthorn. (Thanks be to the crew behind VOZ for fixing that, yet more third party freeware modders that work harder than the original developer - Melbourne actually has its bridges and biggest buildings in the right place)

Ultimately, unless Laminar want to drop the price to something far far far more reasonable, and make all base software for it part of the price. and ensure anyone that actually has paid the current price for this gets all updates and payware in future either free or a drastically reduced price, this really is not software that is close to being worth the price tag.

Excellent sim, but the price, the broken promised features, and the perpetual 'Beta status' excuse for anything outside of standard flight sim fare being broken combine to me absolutely regretting biting the bullet and paying for this.

I would highly advise downloading it first and seeing if what you intend to use it for is broken or not then go from there, but this certainly isnt worth a casual purchase with cheap hardware.

Gotta say, I have been trying to choose between the FS's on the market.
Did a lot of research and decided that X Plane 10 was the one. Lots of sites to download freeware and payware if you so desire. I am very very angry to find that Steam version only downloads certain files when you hit the good old "Purchase" button. The upshot being that I cannot access any "Core Program" files which I have paid for. If I went to a shop and bought X plane 10 on DVD's that is the FULL program.

Steam, have done their usual business model and you have to pay for all DLC, there is no freeware on offer regarding Aircraft / plugins/ Enhancements that are freely available to anyone with the full program on their hard drive.
Come on Steam play the game and give people what they have paid for, access to the FULL X plane program.
I for one feel that Steam have cheated me and will be applying or a refund on £44.99.

Dissapointed. Fly from London city airport, Take off and..... Wtf is this? Wheres the millenium dome??? Wheres London? Crap. On FSX if you take off from London city you can tell its a city and the Millenium dome is there on the left as you take off. Yes X-plane looks better imo but it just doesnt capture the enviroments like FSX does. Oh lets spend more money on getting london to look remotely like london??? No Thanks. Should have flushed my money down the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Expect to purchase additional content. Many third party developers have made aircraft and scenery that far exceed the quality offered by the game out of the box. Without it, the sim can look a little rough around the edges.
Things that stood out for me:
  • Flexibility: runs on a wide range of systems, and allows for extensive customization.
  • Tools: "plane maker" is available out of the box and "WED" can be downloaded off of the X-Plane website to edit scenery.
  • Weather: highly detailed clouds, precipitation. Aircraft react appropriately to wind, thermals and turbulence.
  • Visuals: if you have a high-end computer, you'll absolutely love the way the sim can look.
Make sure you spend some time around X-Plane.com to find some more information. Lots of guides and community resources are listed there. The devs do a great job of supporting the product.
Please note that the Steam version and the retail version run on different update schedules. At the time this review was written, the retail version is on 10.50 and the Steam version is still on 10.45. If you have serious FOMO, buy the DVDs. I switched from the retail version because I no longer have an optical drive.

A simulator which is continuously being improved with new free patches. While the interface may give you headache at first, especially if used to other flight simulators, it is fairly easy when you have got used to it. The simulator has great free scenery addons which arguably makes it the best looking flight simulator of the lot. X-Plane 10 now days also have a couple of really high quality payware aircrafts, PMDG’s DC-6 and IXEG’s 737-300, highly recommended for the serious tube-flyer. Combined with high performance and the unique flight dynamics makes for a very fluid experience not seen in FSX and Prepar3D. This obviously also makes X-Plane a great platform if you’re interested in general aviation flying.

The upcoming 10.50 patch, which is currently in beta for non-steam users, will vastly improve the AI and ATC. The AI and ATC have previously been criticised for being dull, something which is hard to disagree with. The patch will also bring even more community made airports – no more barren airports in most places, global wind data (previously only in USA), better autogen and even better performance.

Best flight sim base available. Only minimal enhancement required (most of which is free), and fantastic paid aircraft available that really bring the sim to life.

The ATC needs work, mind, but most people that are serious about using ATC use one of the real-human options. I'd personally like to see some improvement there though.

I was playing FSX and then P3D V2 and V3 and now I have moved to X-Plane thanks to the IXEG 737 classic. X-Plane 10 is the most realistic flight simulator in the market right now. The graphics and flight dynamics cant be compared with any other simulator out there. A big plus is also that its 64-bit, so it takes more advantage of your RAM.

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!

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 !

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.
