At FSweekend 2011, Austin Meyer, creator of X-Plane, gave a presentation–not just any presentation, mind you, but unveiling of the first full beta of X-Plane 10. Austin discusses what sets X-Plane apart from other flight simulators, as well as what sets X-Plane 9 apart from X-Plane 10.
Other topics of the 90-minute talk include:
- the plausible scenery model,
- the ability of X-Plane 10 to use many CPU cores,
- air traffic control,
- sky, clouds, and scenery,
- lighting, and
- weather modeling.
