Hot Start TBM 900 v1.1.10 Update Released

TBM 18

One of the most popular aircraft on X-Plane 11 has seen a brand new update that addresses multiple fixes and changes has been released. The Hot Start TBM 900 was originally released in October 2018 and has seen numerous updates since. This update is fairly significant bringing in new features such new glass texture work for nicer reflections, an implementation of screen brightness and also printable checklists in PDF format.

Along with the new features, several additions have been added including reworked airfoils, an adjustment of the stalling performance to better match the “book numbers” as well as corrected CG offsets. Accommodating the improvements is a vast list of bug fixes including VOR intercepts, modeling issues and much more.

The full update can be installed via installing a fresh copy of the plane, which involves downloading a new install from X-Aviation. If you don’t own a copy of the aircraft (which won our Community Choice Award for Best Small Aircraft), you can buy it from X-Aviation for $64.95.

Verticalsim Updates Eastern Iowa KCID Airport

Vertical Simulations Kcid Iwoa (8)

Verticalsim has announced in a Facebook post they had updated their Eastern Iowa airport / KCID rendition for X-Plane 11. The version 1.4 corrects minor bugs, adds a new PBR texture for the terminal glass and sees a general update of most of the textures.

Initially released in September, Verticalsim KCID for X-Plane 11 is also compatible with freeware Verticalsim VStates. They aim to create an accurate rendition of the more rural states of the United States of America. The tiles consist of corrected ortho imagery, compatible with payware airports in their respective areas.

The combination of VStates, VTrees and their various payware sceneries creates a really nice ambiance in those usually forgotten areas. Although VStates and VTrees are provided for free, satisfied users can always donate to Verticalsim Studios if they like their work.

The Verticalsim Easter Iowa KCID scenery is available on Simmarket for a fair €15.

Version 1.4 changelog

  • Some minor fixes.
  • New glass PBR for the terminal glass.
  • Re-done textures for a lot of the buildings.
  • VStates Iowa V2 compatibility.
