When Laminar Research announced X-Plane 12 during FlightSimExpo, the immediate question is ‘how will third-party developers react?’ One of the most popular developers, ToLiss, has taken to social media to answer that question and provide a little more information on how they will handle upgrades for their suite of aircraft.
In a short statement on Facebook, the team confirmed that a small upgrade fee will be applied to their A319 and A321 for those wishing to use the plane in X-Plane 12. Whilst no exact price was listed, they confirmed that it will “include additional features” when you upgrade.
In better news, once the team releases its A340-600 later next month, a free upgrade to X-Plane 12 is planned. This means you can pick up the aircraft at release with the knowledge that you can upgrade for free when the time is right for you.
Finally, ToLiss confirmed that as per their internal policy, they will drop support for X-Plane 10 once X-Plane 12 comes along. This is due to the two-sim support policy ToLiss employs.
We’re eager to hear how other developers will work with X-Plane 12 and what their plans will be to support the new simulator when it eventually releases.
