    Does the future lie here?

    Post by Admin on Tue Jan 26, 2016 1:22 pm

    I think the time is fast coming where IMHO X-Plane is finally getting to the point that it can be considered to be finally fullfiling its potential. This is no doubt due wholly to the developers who have finally come onboard to make and sell their wares. Whilst I personally have only tried their free demo, which ended with extreme frustration, I can see that due to the lack of major advancement in fsx/P3D that X-Plane may well start catching up from being 3 years or more behind them. There are, I think, still some glaring shortcomings in X-Plane but these are bound to disappear as more and more devs come onboard the platform, and the more devs that come onboard the better the sim becomes and more will buy into it, giving more return on the devs investment, it is a tight circle.

    Having said all that there are times when i see something in x-plane that blows me away and this following pic made me go WOW!!

    This is majorly better and more realistic than fsx

    Must be ebb tide - the barrage gates are open...

    You're right, that looks pretty bl**dy good. Did you take the image or is it from an XP site? Whatever, thanks for sharing.

    Cheers - Dai. Cool
