• X-Plane 11.30 U.S. Autogen Updates

    X-Plane 11

    X-Plane 11.30 includes updates to the United States autogenerated scenery. New buildings and facades were added to increase visual variety for high rise buildings.

    Urban autogen ground tiles were improved, and additional street level details such as fences, bins, and new vegetation were added as well.

    Finally, industrial autogen was completely overhauled, again with updates to ground tiles, new buildings added, and new street level "clutter" such as fences, gates, and crates.

      This is what makes having a sim in constant development so exciting!

      Great stuff!

      It's a pity autogen of trees is not animated yet as in P3Dv4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEwFmhxzcvE But I hope the animation of autogen vegetation in XP-11 will be done in the near future.

      I shudder to think of the frame rate hit that animated branches and leaves on trees would impose on anything short of a Cray! Thing is, from any altitude greater than a few hundred feet, you can't see the trees move in any but hurricane winds, and then you would not be flying!

      Actually Speed Trees (Moving Trees) were added to P3d a long time ago. I doubt anyone uses them though as most go to either a product like ORBX Trees or Turbulent design trees.

      Let's not forget FlightGear, which also has animated trees (3+ years I think).

      Without panic, and cherish the hope gentlemens, God help us all - I hope God will send the idea of animated vegetation by LODs to Austin Mayer, and thus God will save the frame rate on our computers. Let us together ask God to do some animate the vegetation in XPlane- 11 by LODs (or by change of distance, by user, at His discretion).

      What I like are animated trees during night landings, so cool!
