Orbx Announce X-Plane Development


Yesterday on the Orbx forums, some shots were posted showing off their upcoming EU Netherlands product. These shots caused quite a stir as many speculated these shots were from X-Plane rather than FSX, P3D or AF2. With confusion surrounding with exactly what sim it was.

However, it has now been confirmed that these shots were in fact from X-Plane 11. Which is exciting news as up until now it seemed that Orbx would never be developing for X-Plane.

The three shots shown off show some great work done by Orbx to inergrate their expetrtise into X-Plane with the aid of Ortho2XP and W2XP. With Ortho being such a great piece of software, it’s great to see one of the most well known scenery developers take it on board and use in another platform.

UK2000 Manchester Xtreme X Plane Preview

Manchester Xtreme by UK2000 for X Plane has been delayed until Saturday 16th of September. They are awfully sorry!

UK2000 has released preview shots of Manchester for the X-Plane platform. It was made for ESP flight sims at first, but has now been converted. This means that all assets from the Flight Sim platform such as custom ground textures and autogate are included.

I and everyone else just loves Manchester so this will be a great addition to XP users. It’s a quite an important hub for many UK airlines – both long-haul and short-haul. UK2000 have really been pushing forward on he X-Plane platform lately, so it’s great to see them continue this trend.

Price is not yet announced but as soon as we know we will update.

Release date is September 9th as per the source. To learn more, take a look at UK2000’s Facebook page.
