    DC-9 for X-Plane

    Dear pilots, We are very happy to announce that our DC-9 project, after a lot of hiccups and delays, is finally back on track, and we are working at full speed! The members of our team have experience in real aviation and engineering world, like Aerospace Engineering and flight dynamics testing, pilots, and software programmers. Also we are happy to inform you that part of our team, is a very experienced ex-Swissair DC-9 pilot to ensure the accuracy of the aircraft! Major features: 1. The model will based on DC-9-32, in Swissair’s configuration. This will be the base configuration during development. 2. Accurate flight dynamics, using NASA's simulation tools! 3. System’s simulation to the level that you can/need to operate the aircraft with use of the real aircraft’s manuals. 4. Highly detailed and accurate 3D model. 5. FullHD realistic textures with advanced PBR materials. 5. Fully custom dynamic lighting. 6. Many liveries. To our best, we will match cockpit colors with the liveries. 7. High fidelity sounds, implemented with X-Plane’s new future, "FMOD". 8. VR support from v1.0.0. with full operational manipulators We have opened a dedicated Facebook group, where we will post updates regularly. and discuss with you the development of this project. Feel free to join in! https://www.facebook.com/groups/530615907278229 Enjoy

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    Welcome to P.180 Avanti II support thread. Please post you questions here!

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    No. It's almost ready, but will be for sure out after TBM's release.

    What about some teaser to open your appetite? Bluish panel (with the Blue livery). Checklist and FMS pages on the MFD. and many more...of course! Enjoy!

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    From today (in my restricted free time), I am taking care few loose threads, do some tests that everything works ok, before being packaged for release. So I will say we are close, but cannot be exact.

    P.180 Avanti II - Support

    Thanks a lot @igorpa2! I'm finishing v2.1.1 now, which is mostly about avionics. I'm expecting 11.30 to be out, to look into flight model. Probably will go for a v2.2 with the new flight model improvements, particles, etc.

    Example Scripts

    @BenDLeadbetter no problem mate. I haven't touched this part of the API, so I can't suggest anything beyond this. I don't know if there are some compatibility issues with the latest XP11 changes. Probably you should ask @Ben Russell for more.
  10. airfighter

    Example Scripts

    @BenDLeadbetter first of all, for the particle API, Ben says don't use it. With XP11.30, we are going to get Laminar's particle engine, which you will be able to customize via scripts. If loading an object crashes X-Plane, then you might have some indications why in Gizmolog.txt or Log.txt. Check those files first (or post them here). Also please give more info about what you are trying to do. Which aircraft? Yours or the Aerolite? There are differences when trying accessing a file in X-Plane, if you are working on the specific plane, or trying to load an object from somewhere else. Beyond that, the example might not be right. I think that the below examples should work. local xpFolder = xp.getFolder() --Get the X-Plane folder local exampleobj = gfx.loadObject( xpFolder .. "Aircraft/Laminar Research/Aerolite 103/objects/controls.obj") --OR-- local exampleobj = gfx.loadObject( xp.getFolder() .. "Aircraft/Laminar Research/Aerolite 103/objects/controls.obj")

    P.180 Avanti II

    Version 2.1.0

    3,696 downloads

    P.180 Avanti II for X-Plane 11 NOTES: The aircraft is not compatible with XP11.20VR1. The aircraft is now compatible with the latest version of X-Plane (11.20b2). If you get a pop window to ask you for login details, you do not have to enter anything, just close the window, and the aircraft will work fine. As you might already know this aircraft is based on X-Plane's default P.180 Avanti , originally designed for X-Plane 8, was included in X-Plane 9, and from that point has been overhauled to Avanti II version. This is aircraft is totally FREE! It is a "return" to the X-Plane community that supported us those last 4 years that we exist as a development team! This aircraft main features are: High quality visuals, cockpit all new 3D model and textures, including PBR materials. Simulated: a. startup and shutdown procedures b. engine controls and operations c. autopilot controls and operations d. partially operation of the electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, fuel systems. Emulation of Proline 21 avionics suite. Currently there is only one layout that will allow you to operate the aircraft in all scenarios. Many improvements will come in the future. Installation in the 3D cockpit of the default X-Plane 11 FMC. Improved flight characteristics. Internal custom lighting. Of course Avanti development is not stopping here! Actually the overall development will be continuous, and the aircraft will always be in beta stage. Updates and upgrades will be available frequently! Main planned future upgrades are: Adding more functionallity to Proline 21 avionics suite, heading from an emulation to a simulation. Custom NAV maps. Custom FMC. Fully simulation of all systems. New 3D model from ground up. Improved flight model. Avanti EVO. Special thanks to: Austin Meyer for giving his permission to use parts of the Avanti on this project and X-Plane by Laminar Research that gave us this magnificent simulator! The team that originally developed Avanti for X-Plane, Robert Pearson (aerodynamics), Massimo Durando (cockpit & 3D cockpit), and Javier rollon (External Model. JRollonPlanes www.jrollon.com) for his fantastic 3D work. @Hueyman for the propeller 3D model and the prop disc images. Ben Russell of Gizmo64 for his support and that made available to us that powerful tool (aka Gizmo), and Cameron Son of X-Aviation for the support. And of course X-Plane community for the interest in that project and patient to wait to be realized!

    Key West problem

    Just find out his post. You have posted in a totally wrong forum. Here you should post: http://forums.x-pilot.com/forums/forum/208-general-discussion/ Anyway, this product is about the Key West Airport and the island. Not all the Keys.

    P.180 Avanti II

    Performance in general is a result of many factors. To understand why you get low fps, please post a screenshot with the fps counter at lower fps, settings, and yours machine specs. In my low end i5-4440/GTX760 @1080p, I get a slightly better performance when compared to zibo 738. Yes...but in the future, without setting any specific date.
  14. Happy New Year...with an announcement! In collaboration with LatinVFR, we are converting San Diego International Airport for X-Plane! The project is already in an advanced stage. About the project: Will be converted for X-Plane 10.50+, to our team's standards of quality. That mean, parts that are not looking good in X-Plane, will be replaced with ours. It works fine in X-Plane 11, but after X-Plane 11.00 goes final, we will update all airports (including KSAN) to new standards. Updates will be free. A small preview for now, more to come! Enjoy!
  15. You are welcomed @boeing253!

    This will be fixed with the next update.

    Weird. I haven't faced that again. I have at work next update to be available soon that will address those problems. Please be a bit patient.

    Are you closing it from the small "X" at the top left or right corners, and still comes back?

    Could you post some screenshots, so I can understand exactly what you mean?

    are these aircrafts for xplane 11-10 or FSX

    If you are referring to those in the Download section, I think they are for previous version of X-Plane (9 or 10).

    are these aircrafts for xplane 11-10 or FSX

    Which planes?
  24. @boeing253 Sorry for the late reply. Family and vacations delayed me. I've run a lot of test but hadn't any problems with stutters or freezing. My tests were on totally different machine, settings, and OS, so results might vary. In short I've seen a small drop in fps, but that was all. Anyway, I have found some unoptimized objects that might be the cause, so I would like to give a try. Download the attached file, unzip it and drop (and replace) the files into KSAN_San_Diego/objects/icarus folder. Give it a try to see if that fixes that problem, and please report back the results.
