• X-Plane 11.30 Public Beta: Are We There Yet?

    X-Plane 11

    Almost! we've been running a small scale private beta for the last few weeks while we finish new features and fix major bugs. I don't want to curse the beta, but it looks like we may be able to get the public beta posted this weekend.

    In the last two days we've had two major show-stopping bugs, but both are fixed, so we're going to keep trying to nail this thing down and get it posted.

    The public beta features not only the new particle system, available to third parties, but it is now in use for most (but not all) of the built-in effects in the sim. New Plane-Maker options let authors specify which effect categories (e.g. engine effects, wheel effects, etc.) they want to replace.

    At this point it looks like we won't have anything public for Vulkan this year, although I do think we will hit some internal milestones.
