NMG Simulations Reports On X-Plane 12 Compatibility


We are receiving a lot of questions about this lately.

It is important to remember that although X-Plane 12 is for sale,it is still in early access; development is still ongoing. Ourairports may therefore or may not work with this early version ofX-Plane.

Usually, our airports are fully compatible with the next version,except for any special features that may have been added. In the caseof X-Plane 11, our airports for X-Plane 10 worked flawlessly with it,except for the ground service vehicles, which were not present.

We have hoped that the same would be true for X-Plane 12, but thereports we have received so far indicates all kinds of bleed troughsand funny effects. This may change as development of X-Plane 12continues.

There are also no design tools available to fix these airports forX-Plane 12 at this stage. Just like us, the developers of these toolsare probably also waiting for X-Plane 12 to go off early access beforespending time to upgrade their programs for the latest version. Thisis understandable as you don’t want to keep on fixing something thatcould have been fixed only once!

If you intend on buying X-Plane 12, just remember that it is notfixed yet and that you are going to be a beta tester for LaminarResearch until the definitive version comes out.

We have not decided if we are going to make our airports compatiblewith this version of not. Sales for X-Plane scenery is exceptionallylow, and it is not going to be worth the trouble if we are going tohave to re-design all the airports as in the case of MSFS. X-Plane issaturated with freeware, and this makes commercial developmentexceedingly difficult and not worth investing money into.
