IXEG 737-300 Development Update


IXEG, the developer responsible for the successful 737-300 for X-Plane, gave an update to development progression over on the X-Pilot forum.

In a previous update, Tom Kyler, the developer behind IXEG, mentioned that the development of 3D modelling and sounds were on the register to be improved but were bound to older technology and tools. When the IXEG 737 was first developed it was beyond the development curve for X-Plane and therefore the team had to come up with independent ways of designing their aircraft. Now Laminar Research has made improvements to their developer tools, the team have had to rework their existing techniques to be in line with the newer laminar developments.

With the help of Ted Greene at Laminar Research and a converter that he has written, the team are able to work much more efficiently with updating their aircraft within the newer practices of X-Plane. Using the converter, the team are in the process of moving all the current assets to use the updated toolchain of today. Having done the majority of the complex functions, the team doesn’t anticipate moving the rest of the functionality of their development over to the newer systems. The movement to newer practices will allow the team to improve bugs and develop their aircraft quicker and easier than ever before.
