In X-Plane 11.50, there is a check-box in the graphics settings that enables Vulkan or Metal, and a restart of X-Plane is necessary for the change to take effect. If for some reason a user can’t use Vulkan or Metal, OpenGL is still available by simply unchecking the box. The Boeing/Saab T-7 Red Hawk, originally known as the Boeing T-X, is an American/Swedish advanced jet trainer developed by Boeing Defense, Space & Security in partnership with Saab Group. It was selected on 27 September 2018 by the United States Air Force (USAF) as the winner of the T-X program to replace the Northrop T-38 Talon. X-Plane 7 X-Plane 7.

X-Plane.org has been in operation since the year 2000, making us one of the oldest Flight sim websites in operation. X-Plane.org is an independent community forum focused on discussion for X-Plane and X-Plane add-ons. X-Plane.org has no affiliation with Laminar Research (X-Plane.com, the editor of X-Plane). The Airfoillabs team, an X-Plane 11 addon developer from Brno, Czech Republic is about to release 1.5 update of their King Air 350. The team from Airfoillabs has spent quite a bit of time focusing on the physical model, avionics, performance and general handling of their airplane. 5th in line, this update introduces a new Quick Look feature, which allows the Pilot to use predefined views to.
X-Plane is considered by their own developers as the world's most comprehensive flight simulation game and we've gotta admit, a lot of work has been put in to this title which offers virtual pilots a very realistic flight simulator. Not to be confused with Microsoft Flight Simulator, this simulator is a newer variant of Microsoft's original game genre. Unlike other flight simulators, X-Plane features real-world airline such as the U.S. Air Force, NASA, United, Quantas and US Airways.
Enter the world of X-Plane with some of the coolest aircraft available at your fingertips to fly. Turbo-props, jets, single and multi-engine aircraft as well as gliders and helicopters. This simulator packs it all in.
It's really hard to describe how cool this game is without showing you some videos, we highly suggest doing a quick search on YouTube to get an idea about how the graphics look. With that said, the graphics here along with the realistic weather really make the game a pleasure to play. X-Plane comes with over 40 aircraft. The aircraft in the X-Plane demo is limited to 1 and only 5 minutes of flight, unfortunately.
What's really amazing about X-Plane is how many users they've taken from Microsoft. Reportedly, the actual physics and accuracy in X-Plane compared to Microsoft Flight Simulator is noticeable. Though as with pretty all products in this genre, getting the hang of flying a computer model airplane takes some time but X-Plane 10 promises to be much easier than 'the other sim'.
Piloting an aircraft in X-Plane, unlike in MS Flight Sim, is not just limited to Earth. You're actually able to run the simulation in space or even around Mars.
While I can't stop trying to compare this with Microsoft Flight Simulator, I just also have to say that the graphics here are much smoother than MS Flight Simulator X and the details are just so stunning from the moving parts inside the jet engine to the very complex textures. It just looks so great.
A very important aspect of flight simulation is the community behind it. The users who create custom content are really the heart of the community and in that aspect, X-Plane certainly doesn't let down. You're able to create and add literally any textures, sounds, airplanes and instrument panels that you want. You're also able to edit the aircraft which are included with the install, making it easier for the community to learn to and to create new aircraft.
Before wrapping this up, here's a video which gives you an idea of the graphics; it's centered on the Boeing 747.
