X-Plane 8.11 Beta Available
11:04 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

X-Plane has recently been bumped up to version 8.11 Beta. Listed as a mini-update, this latest patch includes a number of fixes and enhancements, including the following:

  • Cloud refinements: Both low and high Cirrus cloud types are now available.
  • Mouse-control region is now ok at hi resolutions.
  • No more semi-transparent horizon in the 3-d cockpits.
  • More precision in placement of speedbrakes and gear doors in Plane-Maker.
  • Ctrl-\ works for keyboard access to the circling-with-cockpit view.
  • Fuel flow more accurate for jets at high altitude.
  • ALL art horizons and HSIs now show pitch and roll and heading in replay.
  • The heading HOLD select and heading SYNC knobs are now swapped left/right on the directionsl gyros to match more planes.
  • The +/- keys are back to doing ZOOM, not MOVE, in the "@" view.
    Why? Because I like it a lot more this way.
Those interested in downloading this latest offering can get it directly from the official X-Plane site.
