X-Plane 6.0.5 Released
6:00 AM | Tim Morgan | Comment on this story

Crawling out of beta status, Laminar Research's highly modular civilian flight simulator X-Plane sports a number of new features.

Version 6.0.5 introduces a round world to X-Plane, so pilots can now accurately circumnavigate the globe. It supports a video resolution of 1024x768, and terrain resolution has been increased five times. The user interface has been redone and is now faster, as is airplane rendering. A number of bugs from the beta version have been fixed, including redraw errors caused by the new, round world.

X-Plane currently retails for $59.99 and is only available from Laminar's web site.
