9:04 AM | Tim Morgan | Comment on this story
Laminar Research released today what they called "unquestionably the biggest update to X-Plane ever," bringing it to version 6.10.
The new version adds complete Mac OS X support, including joystick functionality. The terrain engine has been completely redone to include land-use data covering the entire world. The data comes on four new CDs. Along with other graphical enhancements comes a much more realistic flight model with support for gyrocopters. Enhancements have also been made to the cockpits of the aircraft, and more realistic failure options have been implemented.
X-Plane and the four CDs of land-use data will retail for $29.99. A demo is available that allows players to fly in the SoCal area for six minutes. X-Plane is a comprehensive general-aviation simulator that allows pilots to design and fly a wide variety of aircraft and helicopters.
