I am excited about this - but I'm working for a hospital and the only internet access I can get from the temporary staff accommodation block is through this locked-down laptop. I'm not sure the Trust administrators would take kindly to me installing torrent software on it to download the files for installation on my desktop...

Interesting, I wonder how it would run on my Core2 Duo P8400? But interesting, nonetheless.

That shot makes me think of Wings over Vietnam wiht a highway (sort of like a TK sim with the ambient civilian traffic on roads found in an ED sim)...

I hope they model north of 60 degrees latitude... (and appropriate changes in the types of lanscape).

What kind of framerate are you getting?

Got it downloaded Woohoo! but on my system I am not exactly wow-ed yet, sure it looks better than default FSX from 5 years ago, but I am getting pretty basic graphics and 20-22 FPS with the default on my system that runs FSX + REX + ORBX + Payware planes at 25-45 FPS...

Here are some examples of what I am getting at 22 FPS, is there something now working right on my system or does it look like this for you??

Random over Renton:


Renton Municipal Airport:


Boeing Field:


Approaching KSEA:


Over KSEA:


The flight model of the default Cessna 172 felt a bit more alive than the FSX default C172 but the graphics and FPS are definitely not doing it for me, roads look good, but everything else is pretty sparse, is everyone seeing the "Massive improvement over FSX" ? if so I'm hoping somehow my system is just not working well with it or something and it's defaulting to some lower gfx, I have high hopes for this being much better CPU/GPU performance than FSX.

FPS is killing me on this so far. Haven't had time to tweak it or explore more, but a pretty bad first impression IMHO..

What aircraft are included in the demo?

Is this the complete list of aircraft that are packed with X-Plane 10?

I'm surprised there's not more buzz on this site about the X-Plane 10 demo. Given that the flight sim community is such a small world, I would have thought this was big news. Is civil aviation really that uninteresting?

There's a thread here, one in Community Hall, one in Screenshots and Videos... quite a bit of buzz IMHO for something that looks like the publisher/dev did not do much pre-arranged release notice of.

Personally I was looking forward to this but am so far deflated on my buzz from the poor FPS and scenery which is a big step down from current FSX on my system, maybe others are suffering from buzz kill too.

Hoping somehow the demo is not representative of the final that they used for those screenshots and what made me look forward to this.

Kludger, can't argue with you there. For me X-Plane 10 went from a sure-purchase to a wait-and-see.

1st thing I noticed... slopped runways!!!!(dont know if it was in xplane9 but quite tired on the flat FSX runways....)
Dont understand how the views work.... dizzy
How do you pan? I only found ''look up, left, right and down''
And even with full zoom-out, I'm at 1ft of the yoke.... sigh

Every setting maxed out... 10 fps thumbsup

I can add all sorts of interesting weather conditions and still have playable fps on my old PC (Q9650 @ 3600mhz, 4 gb RAM)

New CPU and some updated scenery, and this will be a phenomenal sim. My res is 1920 x 1080.

This has to be the most underwhelming significant flight sim release ever. Maybe this just speaks volumes of the death-spiral the genre is in. Or maybe CloD, DCS, and console releases have left us sim types utterly exhausted and poor. But really? I never would have bet that the release of XP 10 would have earned so little attention. Not just here at SimHQ but even at xplane.org. Or maybe it was the long delay with the release. Whatever it is, I just hope it's not indicative of future sales.

...Now back to Forza!

It is Laminar's fault. (Really). I've tried to get a preview copy or a review copy so that I could sit down and thoroughly write an article about what is new, good, bad, great, and ugly about XP10 but they won't sign on. Instead we got this wet noodle balloon of a release that really doesn't do them any favors. I could have made 20 suggestions right off the bat to them to improve the initial impression by an order of magnitude but they went with what they went with.

I don't understand why they'd want to shoot themselves in the foot like this. And trust me, I'm one of X-Planes biggest fans on SimHQ - look at my list of articles dedicated to X-Plane in the archives.

Just puzzling..

Yea, I see your point beach, it looks like it has potential, but the opening scenerio was a horrible choice. I consider myself lucky, because I have good frames with their default scenerio, but I can see where a lot of people wont and that makes for a horrible first impression. Im not sure how I feel about the scenery. I took off from KSEA with the 747 at night and thought it really looked amazing from the outside view. The VC's looked horible. I know there are lots of high quality XP aircraft for XP9, I think they should have included one of those and used it for the default startup on the demo.

Its got me second guessing if I want to order this and I was sold on it months ago.
