Because X-Plane predicts the performance and handling of almost any aircraft, it is a great tool for pilots to keep up their currency in a simulator that flies like the real plane, for engineers to predict how a new airplane will fly, and for aviation enthusiasts to explore the world of aircraft flight dynamics. ABOUT THE GAME. The future of flight simulation is now.X-Plane 11 is the detailed, realistic, and modern simulator you’ve been waiting for, with a intuitive user interface, 3-D cockpits, and new effects and features.And it’s coming soon to the Steam platform.
I love X-Plane 9! Can't wait to try it out this weekend!!! I'll buy this for sure! Due to the huge amount of data. It will not be available on the Mac App Store. Phrase rhymes with clucking bell: X-Plane 10 requires, at the minimum, a 2 GHz, multi-core CPU, 2 GB of RAM, and a video card with 512 MB of on-board, dedicated video RAM (VRAM).
However, for the best experience, we recommend the following: a 3 GHz, multi-core CPU (or, even better, multiple processors), 4 GB of RAM, and a video card with 1 GB of on-board, dedicated VRAM. Runs pretty good on Mac Pro '08!
I know that posting twice in a row isn't very nice, but I just wanted to share my first impressions of X-Plane 10. Background image word for mac. Got the demo via the torrent.
Finally downloaded, and copied it over to my /Applications directory. First of all: it didn't start. So I gave the whole X-Plane 10 Demo directory full permissions: (in Terminal.app): sudo chmod -R 777 X-Plane 10 Demo/ Now it works! Default settings @ 1920 x 1200 rez: Settings: high AF: 4x AA: off Rest: dunno Quick start with my joystick. Default UA 747-400 @ KSEA.
Hardware: Mac Pro '08 ATi Radeon 4870 8 GB RAM OS X 10.7.2. Best Yoke, Throttle, etc.? I am looking to buy flight controls for a friend, and know nothing about this stuff.
Mac unable to unmount volume for repair. He is a pilot in real life, and would love the most realistic feel possible. And where can I find yoke, throttle, pedals, etc. I will also be buying him a program, and from what I've read X10 is the way to go.
FOllowed closely by FlightSimulator (i think that was it at least). For a PILOT, which would you recommend? Again, I need advice on where to find the controls too.
Please answer both questions.
