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.”

About This Game

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


  • Super accurate flight characteristics using a virtual wind tunnel
  • Includes 30 aircraft, from gliders to the Space Shuttle
  • Online flying with other virtual pilots
  • Air Traffic Control actually controls the other aircraft around you
  • Accurate terrain, roads and more
  • Global ‘Plausible World’ auto generated scenery
  • New rendering engine with innovative global lighting
  • 64 Bit optimized
  • Totally flexible and extendable with thousands of existing add-ons (and many more to come)
  • Includes super-detailed scenery for Nice (LFMN), Paderborn-Lippstadt (EDLP) and Faro (LPFR)
  • printed “Quick Start Guide” included

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

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.

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.

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.

X-Plane 10 is the best and most accurate flight simulator I've ever used. Its real-time flight simulation is unrivaled and the graphics, oh, the graphics! This is personally one of my best buys and I certainly recommend it to anybody who wants an in-home flight sim, be that just a desktop and a joystick or a realistic cockpit with a movement deck and realistic controls.
Albeit a little pricey at £44.49, this game is worth it on sale.

I'm a fan of simulation games. Not a lot of flight simulators are available right now in the market. The most choices are Flight Simulator X and X-Plane 10. X-Plane 10 is of course a huge jump from X-Plane 9. Graphics are improved, development progress has been really great for this game. There are some minus sides on the physics section, I hope they will get fixed. I can run this game at 30 frames per second with noticable lags in heavily populated areas. As a fan of simulation games; X-Plane 10 is a huge improvement from X-Plane 9 and I recommend it only for people who are not new to the simulation market.

I come from FSX:SE and I was happy there. Yes, it was frustrating some times with freezings, and out of memory issues but I thought, "well, there isn't anything else out there. PMDG planes are in FSX and Prepar3D". Then the IXEG was released. I wanted to try so I bought X-Plane. My first steps in the game/sim were to complaint about the weird camera controls, the terrible UI, the bad scenery and airports... So I started investigating a bit in the forums about how to improve it. After all, I did the same with FSX which doesn't look very good until you add some extra stuff.

So I read, and I start learning about the free awesome plugins like eBag, Terra Haze, Airport Navigator, Enhanced Runways HD... Then I found out how easy was to install those plugins (add ons) compared to how frustrating can be in FSX. I found out there are photorealist environments FREE out there. Really good ones! (yes, it's a lot of GB, but it's all free!) and from different sources, "alpilotx", SpainUHD, World2XPlane...really easy to set up. And a lot of free airports also free with awesome quality! (how many times I said free?)

The controls are not difficult to setup at all once you understand how the setup menu works, and the views control works flawlessly once you get use to it! (actually I wish now FSX was controlled the same way) And the IXEG 737 is the master piece of the airplanes in X-Plane (well, now we have even PMDG DC-6) I have almost everything to high rendering quality and getting around 50-60fps. I couldn't be happier.

My advice: give a try, and you won't regret. FSX is going to die anyway once Dovetail releases its new flight sim. (it's sad but is the truth) Until we can compare, X-Plane is the best option out there. Looks fantastic (try to fly over cities during the night) and flies in a very realistic way.

Very accurate; I own X-Plane Pilots and I have been involved with X-Plane for almost 6 years. I can say that this simulator mimics the real thing, I fly 172, 152, and Piper Archer in Real World and X-Plane is highly realistic. If you want to real experience go X-Plane.

The videos are so misleading. The 3rd party addons cost so much money, more than FSX. I thought the 3rd party addons would possibly come free with the game but yet half of the airports have no textures and must be downloaded. It is stupid how they did this instead of adding airports. I am dissapointed how they added the 3rd party addons video because people can just view youtube and see what its like. Otherwise, the company advertises it like it has everything you want but nope! Most of the conutries have water textures, no airport textures, barely compatible with any joystick, and litterly everything must be downloaded. I would at least buy FSX, the boxed, not steam because steam edition doesn't come with simconnect which is a d*** move by dovetail. Any wars, buy FSX boxed and none of these flight simulators from Steam. If you want it buy it, in my opinion its to time consuming to do anything, plus FSX has better addons, at least in my opinion.

Where to begin ...

Before I say anything, I will confess myself in the Prepar3D camp (basically, Lockhead Martin bought the Microsoft Flight Sim 'base' and kept developing it). I'm by no means a fanboy, nor wouldn't I hesitate to dump the game in a heartbeat if a better option came along. I simply go where my needs and wishes are met.

I've played X-Plane on- and off for many years, along with Microsoft Flight Simulator. So I'm by no means a newcomer to the genre or the game, I just happened to pick up the Steam version a few months ago during a sale, "just in case".

Recently X-Plane began picking up. Lots of buzz surrounding the game, especially with the release of the IXEG 737, some high quality airports by guys such as MisterX and some really good freeware plugins. I had $2-300 worth of payware, sitting on my X-Aviation account so I figured; why not give it an honest go again, last time I left disappointed.

Right from the off you're dealing with a very, very rough game. From the horrendously outdated and clunky UI, to a joystick setup that doesn't seem to have any sort of pre-configurations. Both my Thrustmaster T.16000M and HOTAS Warthog set had no default bindings. Even setting up the little POV view on top of the T.16000M was a major pain in the ♥♥♥. Also, the game has a tendency to not let you change an axis assignment at times. A problem that has persisted for 10 years now, I believe.

You are thrown into default planes with an awful 2D cockpit and overall a ghastly looking game. But, few flight sims look great out of the box. Especially the GA sims with the entire world as your playground. So I started installing my payware, installing all the fancy freeware, donated to G2XPL to build my own terrain, downloaded 400GB+ worth of Spain UHD, HD / UHD world meshes, installed a plugin list as long as the Bible and generally got the game in a prime state.

And yet ... The game never truly impresses me. Visually, it's very rough to look at. The rendering technique feels very outdated, you really get that 2005-feeling when booting up the game. I know they are planning on adding PBR but that's still not here -- Perhaps X-Plane 11?

One of the game's biggest downfalls is the weather rendering, which out of the box is, I'm sorry, garbage. You can spruce it up with SkyMaxx, RWC, NOAA but it never impresses. It's just a mediocre, lethargic attempt at weather.

Even the terrain, when loaded up with the highly recommended and much praised HD meshes from alpilotx.net, one of the game's biggest advantages that you can so easily create terrain, plus it's so readily available for free, it still doesn't leave me impressed. The detail and rendering of Denmark, where I live, is downright awful. Entire cities are turned into a grey slabs, trees are randomly placed, the autogen placement makes little sense, from the air it looks like a building site rather than a green country with lots of fields.

And to add insult to injury, the rendering technique the game applies, makes the terrain and the 3D models look grummy and inconsistent.

I could probably go on but it's hard to put into words, how the inconsistent look makes for a very unappealing visual experience. I will mention some of the game's stronger points; Lots of freeware, great out-of-the-box flight dynamics / models, performance and the night lighting.

These 4 are supposedly the key points, that are often used to sell X-Plane over FSX, FSX:SE and P3D (and 64-bit to some degree, of course).

- Freeware, can't argue with that, so much great stuff that rivals payware.

- Great out-of-the-box flight dynamics? Yes. Do notice, that people rarely mention, the competition offers an equally good flight model when it's actually implemented by the developer. Take FSX / P3D's A2A studio, almost nothing comes close to that flight model and system surrounding the plane. However, this means planes from less impressive development studios like Carenado, are actually worth flying because X-Plane itself invokes the flight dynamic forces onto the model. May not be accurate but makes for a more exciting flight experience, when the developer doesn't care.

X-Plane also has the major advantage of actually having helicopter simulation worth a damn, some of the stuff will even rival the excellent models that DCS offer

- Performance? Njeeeeeeh. I mean, in some areas you can crank up settings and see a small hit, like autogen. However, I still saw FPS drops down in the 30s when loading up the Saab 340A, sitting at MisterX's KBOS. I can manage those numbers in the Airbus 320, sitting at FlyTampa's EKCH. On my machine, X-Plane does not impress me performance wise. Getting better performance overall in P3D. Maybe on lower end machines? I don't know.

- Night lighting? Sexy stuff. You can see runway lights miles off, compeltely lit cities, cars driving around, amazing stuff. What no one tells you is the fact the game has zero light bleed / ambient light or any of that stuff. There's no light pollution being projected, no ambient light from the moon. When it's night, it is completely pitch black and it makes no sense. So while it's the best take on night lighting in any of the flight sims, still leaves a lot to be desired.

So even the game's top features are a bag of so-so. It's a hard sell overall, visually it's inconsistent, no season textures, the freeware scene is great but it's a lot of work to research and get it all set up, A LOT OF WORK, UI is horrendous, weather system is terrible, the game looks flat and uninspired, some of the top recommended plugins are obnoxious to work with (RTH that can't save negative values, hello), ATC system is awful, flight dynamics while good haven't been updated since it was created and needs some work.

Overall the game feels like ... feels like a community project. Feels outdated, it lacks finesse and polish, the payware scene is super lethargic, the freeware scene is difficult at the best of times to navigate, there's even some bad blood between two of the big payware sites for the game. Development for the game happens at a VERY slow pace. I think they are two developers on the game?

Feels like the game itself should be freeware at this point.

To be fair I will not rate this SIM negative, but I have to warn possible newcomers.

In short words:

XP10 is not really an user friendly flight-sim. It comes with shallow sound, requires a lot of time for plug ins, mods or pay add-ons to achieve better visuals and use.

TrackIR user will not be pleased with the out of the box support of this device. Plug-in needed.

Fact is: I am not absolute satisfied with the sim-experience in this current state even after hours of modding and reading XP forums.


edit:

Best flight dynamics in the business. No contest. A little lacking in content out of the box compared to FSX certainly, but the sheer amount of free downloadable content for this simulator negates said issue.

This is your only choice of general aviation and commercial flight sim on Steam as far as native Linux and Mac support goes. Luckily, for Linux and Mac simmers, this is a great simulator and a great alternative to the venerable FSX.

With (literally) thousands of freeware downloads (aircraft, airports, terrain mesh packs, sound packs, utilities, etc.) anyone who thinks there is no content for this simulator has obviously never been to www.x-plane.org

Step 1: Purchase X-Plane 10 Global
Step 2: Head over to www.x-plane.org
Step 3: Acquire index finger blister (and learn how to add freeware, don't worry it's not hard)
Step 4: Setup sim graphics and calibrate joystick (and rudder pedals if you got 'em)
Step 5: Pick aircraft and airport, load sim
Step 6: You may thank me at your leisure

P.s. You're welcome.

An incredible experience! You can literally lean to fly virtually any aircraft in your own home, at your own desk...simple incredible. Before I took a trip to China and Tibet I flew my XPlane sim into every airport, over every sight I was looking forward to being at. The 'Google Earth' quality of graphics made it so I actually recognized the places/runways/airstirps/mountains/streams/ topography as we flew over and landed.....absolutely incredible. Combine this program with CH Yoke, peddles and such and it's just like the real thing. After some time on my XPlane sim I am able to take over the controls of a friends Cherokee 6 (1,500 feet and above) and fly it like I was born behind the wind screen.....you can too....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AAA++++

I'm writing this review for the XBOX ONE controller. It works and works pretty well. Have your keyboard close to you for trimming, lights, different views, etc. I am very impressed with the level of control X Plane gives for customizing controls. There isn't a single item on the aircraft, heat included, that doesn't work. It's pretty awesome.

As a newcomer to flight sims (but not aviation- working on my private license right now), I really enjoy this game. I considered MS X but there is a new version coming out this year so I decided I didn't want to sink money into a big sim until the new version comes out. Then I WILL.

I pulled off my first flight without a hitch using only an xbox one controller that I set up. I will be buying flight sim hardware soon. Does it take some time to learn? Yep. Is it worth it in the end? In my opinion, absolutely. I wouldn't say it is better than MS X, but until the new one comes out, this is what I will fly.
