X-Plane World Editor 2.0r1 Beta Released

X Plane 11 2

World Editor (also known as WED) has received a major update.

World Editor is a 2D open source tool that allows anyone to edit the thousands of airports already in X-Plane, as well as creating their own airports. The fact that is is open source means that anyone can do a whole load of things such as building object libraries or using existing ones and implementing them within their own scenery.

You can find all the latest releases for WED here, with WED Version 2.0r1 being under ‘Latest Beta Version’.

The author Joe

I have been an avid Flight Simmer since around the age of 6 or 7. Starting with FS2004, I have worked my way up over the years through the various additions to each flight sim platform and I have finally settled with P3D V4. I have always wanted to be a pilot from a very young age, in fact my earliest memory is being on a plane to Austria! Being involved in both the Aviation Industry as a Student Pilot, and a Flight Simmer is a pure passion for me. In my spare time I write songs as a Musician, I write websites (and I host them) and I have interests in the Cyber Security Sector/Networking Sector.
