The 11th edition of X-Plane offers a much more realistic and immersive experience. A new rendering engine takes the whole world into a new light - in the truest sense of the word. Thanks to "physically based rendering", lighting and reflections behave physically correctly and change depending on the object surface and viewing angle. These methods work dynamically, eliminating the need to pre-calculate graphical effects and optimizing performance.
X-Plane 11 also features a brand new sound engine that produces 3D surround sound with high-quality samples. This works on a global basis, so that every aircraft and every object fits into the scenery correctly and takes the position of the user into account. The sound engine can be used and extended by add-ons.
The content of X-Plane 11 has also been significantly expanded. Numerous new aircraft with 3D cockpits and extensive documentation are available to the virtual pilot, as well as more than 3000 airports with 3D buildings, static aircraft and dynamic environment.
New cities specifically for Europe and North America were added to the global scenery and updated on the basis of the Open Street Map material.
In the completely redesigned user interface, control settings, aircraft, airports and weather options can now be edited with a graphical preview. With this sophisticated menu structure, the simulator can be operated much more intuitively.
X-Plane 11 is the most advanced flight simulator - still a simulation, but closer to reality than ever before!
