Thread: Whos excited for X-Plane 11?

  1. #1

    Talking Whos excited for X-Plane 11?

    Its a new installment of X-Plane and has upped the price by 10$ after X-Plane 10's Price of 50$ USD for the beta

    The new FMOD Sound engine will be awesome in my opinion as sound is a feature sometimes flight sims require high modding for it to sound like IRL
    The graphics have been improved a lot. My pc can handle 10 but cant handle 11 RIP
    Im not too sure if theres new aircraft or not but my goodness are they even better.
    Very easy weather setup its like programming a game its very simple.
    And lot more weather modes aswell.

    Im excited for X-Plane 11 best thing is that Laminar Research made the best out of the box sim even better
    That means that 60$ = Everything listed here

    Also with 60$ being the price for the beta its the same price as P3D (academic no changes between proffesional just a removed small watermark) So you can make a decision here between which one to choose. Note that P3D V4 is coming and will have 64-bit

    Get it here:
    Or Try the Demo here:

    A bonus is you get X-Plane 10 if you buy 11 only for beta testers.

    My vote would be to keep the XP11 demo ... put up with the 20 min limit and leave it at that. They used all the best in that area, and my system which is at minimum specs operates the demo well, but I doubt it will be the same with the full version because the scenery won't be a good, and addons would be need which would call for a more powerful system.

    I just ordered the XP11 disks set. The demo has worked great for me and am looking forward to installing the rest of the US. Am getting okay performance, but plan on updating to a 1080ti soon.

    I plan on using P3D v3.4 and FSX Gold Box which still is fine with me....I will get P3D 4 when it comes out if the reviews are good.. X Plane is not for me as I do not want to even learn a new system, keys etc and etc.

    I got it from Steam and have put it through its paces. On my machine the performance is better than X-plane 10. I don't know why because it looks much better. My system is middle-of-the-road and it does very well. Here are my specs:
    AMD 8350: no overclocking
    Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming
    16 gigs of ram
    The hard drive for games is not an SSD
    Even on my machine it runs acceptably.
    I have pretty much everything maxed except AA which is at 4x, and I'm not showing static planes.
    This sim far, far outperforms FSX,FSX:SE and X-plane 10. Go figure.

    I have all of my controls programed exactly like FSX which is very,very simple on this sim. I was just like you until I tried it. I Can't really fly FSX anymore after this sim but I do have a place in my heart for all of the old Microsoft sims from FS98 on up.

    I tried the XP11 demo for a solid week because I have started flying copters and wanted to see what the difference was between XP and P3D.I do have years of RC copter flying, taught to me by a Helicopter CFI, plus a couple of hours in a R 44, so I know a little about it. All in all, I did not think it was worth switching to XP, from the difference I saw in the XP copters, versus the 3 Milviz copters I use in P3D. I just don't care for the look of XP, the scenery seems to have a constant shimmer, looks washed out, and the colors have a pastel look to them. Then factor in no seasons, no good AI, or ATC, or weather, and P3D will be my choice for a long time. And as was previously mentioned, having to learn all new controls, no FSUIPC, or EZ dok, just not worth it.
