Thread: X-Plane mars survey

  1. Default X-Plane mars survey

    Hi.

    Pity there is no mars environment in X-Plane 10.
    I am so excited from this feature...Keeping X-Plane 9 for for this feature only is worth it, I think.

    Here is a video of one of my projects. It's a video tutorial so you can follow the instructions inside:

    Very cool! Personally, I never got the hang of conventional landings on Mars. The subsonic Mars planes were really hard to handle.

    Yeah, it's a pity they dropped support for the old ENV scenery, but with its age and low quality, I can't blame Ben for not including it in the graphics overhaul in XP10. There is now much higher quality elevation data available for Mars. Cutting new DSF scenery would be an interesting but non-trivial project.

    Hi Andy.

    You can always practice unconventional landings on mars :
