    X-Plane 4.0 Beta Released-NEW STUFF!

    X-Plane 11.40 is currently shipping as a beta with an updated experimental flight model. We have new events we're attending, and the latest news on the mobile schedule below.
    Upcoming Dates


    X-Plane will be returning to Cosford this month! We will be exhibiting X-Plane 11 in VR and Philipp Ringler will be presenting the latest X-Plane updates and features. Then in the following month we'll be in Lelystad for FSWeekend, also demonstrating X-Plane in VR, and at an AOPA event where we will be guests at the Honeycomb booth.
    Mobile Update

    The team is finishing up final bug fixing, internal testing, and tuning in preparation for the public beta. Our plan is still to begin public testing soon and to have a wide release available this fall. Here are a few more screenshots to tide you over in the meantime!
    You'll be able to plan a route using the global map, download (or "pack") the scenery for flying offline, and then load the route directly into the GPS or FMS.

    Lighting is one area we're still perfecting, but we think the results already look amazing!

    Tips & Tricks

    In this video, we show you how to start the Cirrus Vision SF50 from cold & dark.

    Gateway News

    This month we meet the person behind the username CptCharlesG.
    Q: What motivates you to develop X-Plane scenery?
    A: Possibly to make a better world together? I was always happy to contribute in projects where in return I get a lot from other members of the community. I improve a few airports, and the next day I can fly to anywhere on the world knowing that without any add-on airports I still can land safely and find my way to the right gate - something that wasn't trivial in FSX (once I even had to divert as the new VTBS airport was missing entirely - that was at around 2-3 am. departed from EGLL).
    The actual reason I started to develop to the Gateway was that LHBP (the closest international airport) had only a few 3D terminals and nothing else. But I have seen the opportunities with the lego bricks, and decided to make it look a bit better, and update everything (stands, freq, etc), so I can convince my friends easier that X-Plane is a really promising alternative.

    It's good news Ted but have they fixed the Payware compatibility problem yet. I went to update but it had a warning that it was not compatible with Payware aircraft.


    Cheers

    Welll, I'm using 11.40b5 and just did an extremely short flight with the jar designs A330 and had no issues,+ but this wasnt exactly an in depth flight test either..Where I HAVE found a problem was with XAmbience resulting in me having to uninstall it..

    I Also have not had any issues with the Carenado F-50, nor the A337, nor the A-37.

    I'd suggest an edit to the thread title, but that'd put my sarcastic remark out of context.
