X-Plane 7.41 Arrives
9:49 AM | Tim Morgan | Comment on this story

Laminar Research, developers of the infinitely-extensible general-aviation simulator X-Plane, has bestowed upon its users version 7.41 of its flagship product. The new version has a veritable boatload of new features for owners of the modular simulator, far too numerous to list here.

The highlights include a completely new approach to cockpit design, which will likely result in much more realistic and visually-pleasing dashboards. In addition, developer Austin Meyer has released a plug-in SDK that will allow fourth-party developers to expand X-Planes capabilities even further. Nearing completion is a plug-in that will add long-sought-after 3D cockpits.

A rewritten cockpit model is merely the beginning, however: visit the X-Plane website to see a comprehensive list of the changes made to the graphics engine, flight model, and audio engine.

X-Plane is a flight simulator unmatched on the Macintosh market for its attention to detail and modularity, allowing pilots to build and fly any vehicle from a Cessna to a Space Shuttle. The download is a link to the full version, which will disable joystick input after six minutes if an X-Plane CD is not detected. The full version allows unrestricted flight and includes global scenery for nearly the entire planet Earth (and optionally Mars).
