New Flight Simulator X-Plane 10 announced for 26th January 2012
Paderborn, 30th Nov. 2011 - The Flight Simulation community has patiently been waiting for a new Flight Simulator after Microsoft declared the end of an era for its own Microsoft Flight Simulator. It's now time for Aerosoft to announce a new Flight Simulator generation with X-Plane 10, ready to be shipped at the end of January.
The new Flight Simulator carries more than 20 years of development time and counts on co-operations with flight schools and the aviation industry. The completely new graphics make PC flying a much more realistic adventure. A sophisticated AutoGen creates breathtaking landscapes, the lighting system supports hundreds of light sources and a new weather generator are only a few of the simulators capabilities. The Simulator also takes advantage of multi-core PC's eliminating stuttering effects and supporting an optimized performance.
The flight physics are absolutely unique as the flight dynamics are calculated in real time directly from the 3D model taking its real physics into account. This is why X- Plane comes with the most accurate flight model available for PC flying.
X-Plane 10 is based on a completely new graphics engine for the platforms Windows, Mac and Linux. Data of more than 81 GB make it one of the most comprehensive simulation games ever.
Aerosoft will exclusively enhance the global edition of X-Plane 10 with airport sceneries and typical landmarks. The airports of Innsbruck, Nice, Paderborn- Lippstadt and Faro will be extremely detailed whereas airports such as Frankfurt, London, Paris and Zurich and others will receive a make up to a high detailed standard with customized buildings.
Development of X-Plane 10 has been done in South Carolina (USA) by Laminar Research. With the release of the simulator the PC pilot can already choose between hundreds of freeware add-ons. In addition Aerosoft will soon make their well known add-ons for the Microsoft Flight Simulator available for use in X-Plane 10.
