xEnviro Releases V1.14

01front 2048x

After a very long period of radio silence, the team behind the successful environment engine, xEnviro for X-Plane, has posted that they have released version 1.14. 

Version 1.14 was initially supposed to be just a performance update for users in general, with a specific increase in performance of those users with a lower-end system as well as those that operate X-Plane in 4K. Although all of these objectives were achieved, a significant re-write of the platform’s core code has been carried out to lay the foundations to build a Vulkan compatible update next. The team did not include Vulkan compatibility in this update as they wanted to ensure that the core xEnviro was built on a solid version of X-Plane and Vulkan, rather than a beta.
