X-Plane Vulcan and Metal

Post by Nigel H-J »

Had not seen this until having a look at Flightsim after reading a new thread by Mike on Flightsim freeware lists

Looks promising as the report mentions that it will be 11.50 release.

It certainly looks interesting, click on the Source link at the bottom if you want a more in depth report.

I installed a 2nd copy of XP this evening and updated it to the 11.50 beta accordingly. I haven't installed any addons but just wanted to see how it performs in general.

The verdict - impressed! Smooth as silk even with graphics settings cranked right up, and that includes reflections. I saw between 40 and 80fps when buzzing around in a default Cessna, so roll on the official release. :welldone:
