    Thanks! Besides a few that just have a crop applied, there are only two that I've made visual edits to. All the others are direct from the sim (as can be denoted by the ridiculously long file names)

    This is a collection of my favourite screenshots in X-Plane 11.

    Not officially. Of course you'd be free to try it, and it might well "work" to a degree, but both xEnviro and xVision are plugins that reach deep into X-Plane's internals and so conflicts would be expected.
  4. Hey everybody - I figured that since all new members are locked in the cargo hold (stowaway class - until you make one comment), why not have a free topic to share something about you and how you got in to this fantastic hobby. Note: After two comments, you get upgraded to Economy class which grants faster download speeds (so we don't kill our servers) and the ability to start posts. I'll start: My granddad first got me into flightsimming with FSX (I know, I know.. late starter) on his brand spanking new Toshiba laptop. I'd constantly do London City EGLC to Heathrow EGLL in the default CRJ-700 in awe of the amazing graphics. Eventually though, I wanted something I could fly at home, instead of when visiting them - enter X-Plane 10. At this point, many would ask why I didn't just get FSX like I was used to. Very reasonable question, though our family only had iMacs. Laminar Research were the only flight-sim brand out there that supported OSX and so the love affair began ? X-Plane 10 was sooooo much fun. Though it doesn't look anywhere as nice as XP11 does, I loved it all the same. In 2015, some time after I purchased my first payware aircraft (the FF 777), I got into VATSIM. It is so worth using VATSIM. The feeling of accomplishment after completing my first flight was amazing. X-Plane 11 came around in 2016ish (???). I was a late adopter. The reason being that my iMac couldn't handle it! I eventually built my own computer, since then I'm away and laughing. Here we are - some 13 years after I first tried FSX. Please feel free to share your flightsim stories below. I look forward to reading them!

    EGPF - Glassgow International Airport, Scotland.

    The black text doesn't really play well with the default dark theme on the Threshold Forum - scenery looks great though!
  6. We come from all over, that's for sure!

    There is no official release target per-se. A realistic estimate could be the tail-end of Q1, perhaps beginning of Q2. Again, that is 100% subject to change and could be pulled forwards or pushed back.

    There won’t be an open beta for 1.10. Once closed beta is done, it will release.

    As you may or may not have seen during the recent bout of livestreams, Magnus mentions that towering clouds are not present in the beta versions *yet*. There were present in internal test builds, however, they will be one of the later additions in the beta.

    Here's a video from way earlier in the development process (before beta even) of the FF A320 flying through the clouds. As such, stutters, artifacts and frame drops are not representative of the final product.

    Xephyr Preset

    Version 1.1


    Xephyr Preset Hello! I've been hesitant to release my preset before, but, here we are! If you need a hand with this, feel free to send me a PM on the Threshold Forum or via Discord (Xephyr#4872) Note with the screenshots - the newer ones (I consider them higher quality) are on the far side, so scroll to the end if you'd like to see the most up-to-date screenshots WARNING - This is the "FULL ON" preset, and can be quite frame heavy. e.g. I use an i5-7600, GTX 1060 6gb and 16gb of DDR4. I use XP with ~30fps (FF A320 can take it down to 22ish), which I really don't mind, however others don't really like that idea! FEATURES - Reshade (https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/36509-reshade-xp11/) - Does post-processing. - Ambient Lighting is likely the hardest on frames, however I deem it worthy as it adds a lot to the sim. INSTALLATION - Reshade - Install Reshade (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqLfiqULqUw) - Drag "Xephyr Preset.ini" into your root X-Plane 11 folder. Thanks again for downloading my preset! If you do have any questions, please feel free to ask me. Don't say I didn't warn you about low FPS! I'll work on it if enough people ask ?
