X-Plane 11.30 includes a lot of exciting new features, such as a new ATC voice system, a new particle system for effects, & Dubai landmarks. Links to some highlights are below, and you can find the full release notes with all changes and bug fixes here.
ATC Voice System
The new voice system is more flexible and allows for the community to help improve its pronunciation. You can also listen to ATC on COM1 and COM2 simultaneously. The process for filing a flight plan changed a bit with this update, but you can check out a tutorial video here.
Dubai is a major business and transport hub in the Middle East that is home to the world’s tallest building: the Burj Khalifa.
Embankments & Piers
New facades and objects are available for the creation of embankments, sea-walls, piers, and docks in scenery packs. Scenery artists can use them just like the terminal or jetway kits to customize scenery packs.
A new particle effect system that creates smoke, fire, mist and other ephemeral effects in the sim. Sim pilots may notice new, more realistic effects with heat and light, including updated contrails, heat blur, and wing tip trails.
