P.180 Avanti II for X-Plane 11 - CURRENT VERSION: 2.3.0 (uploaded at: February 125th, 2020)

If you want to support P.180 Avanti development, please donate here: PAYPAL

v2.3.0 Main Features

  • Compatible only with EXPERIMENTAL FLIGHT MODEL (11.40+), capable of flying up to M.67 at altitude.
  • Terrain Radar operation via PFD/MFD buttons.
  • Tablet for aircraft loading (engines must be off and the aircraft stationary), and access to AVITAB.
  • Librain Support.
  • See Change Log for more!

 

If you don't have Gizmo already installed in your X-Plane copy, there is an version of Gizmo in the folder extra files. Put the Gizmo.plugin folder in you X-Plane 11/Resources/plugins folder.

If you already have Gizmo, DO NOT SUBSTITUTE the existing one with this. MIGHT BREAK OTHER GIZMO ADDONS!!!

If you find reflections too high, in the extra files folders are textures to change that. Copy the low reflections texture into the objects folder, and replace the existing one! 

 

 

v2.2.0.VR

NOW VR COMPATIBLE with the help of SimVRLabs!

DESCRIPTION:

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:

  1. High quality visuals, cockpit all new 3D model and textures, including PBR materials.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Installation in the 3D cockpit of the default X-Plane 11 FMC.
  5. Improved flight characteristics.
  6. 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:

  1. Adding more functionallity to Proline 21 avionics suite, heading from an emulation to a simulation.
  2. Custom NAV maps.
  3. Custom FMC.
  4. Fully simulation of all systems.
  5. New 3D model from ground up.
  6. Improved flight model.
  7. 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!

It would be great to release this plane for X-Plane 10 too...

This is impossible now. There are a ton of stuff already adopted that are XP11 exclusively. From FMOD to even PBR materials.

I'm stuck on the installer. I am using an iMac and when I get to the "Connect to the Internet" page, I completely lose it. Is the 'server' my IP address? What is a 'port' etc. and where can if find them?

Are you connected to the internet when you are running the installer?

Bonjorno, airfighter

Alike many other X-Plane pilots, I’ve been eagerly awaiting your release, with updates,of the Piaggio Avanti II - truly the Ferrari (turbo-prop) of the skies!  Once I’ve sorted out my iMac I will be downloading your creation.  Many thanks for all your hard work, patience with we the pilots and I am truly looking forward to more of your very high-quality work.

From a kiwi pilot..

Hello,

thanks very much for this fantastic development.

one question however : it does request x-aviation licensing information ....

so my question is : is it freeware or submitted to licensing rules ?

Thanks in advance for your cooperation

It's a joy to fly this piece of art but pls remove the reflections from the glass surfaces (ND, PFD). Somehow a snapshot of the base (Runway, taxiway or even the mesh below while flying) is taken and a (moving) reflection of that view are being shown on these screens which makes an already hard to read screens unreadable. Pls see attached screenshots taken while taxiing on apron within a few seconds. This was a clear weather and at around 10 AM in the morning and I could not find a way to increase the clarity of the screens - I guess the correct word for it is contrast. Hope these will be sorted out soon to make this beauty more realistic.

I wonder if it is my installation gone wrong somehow or not but I tested on Win 10, XP 11.20vr1. I will now install it to my other XP installation v11.11r2 to see if it is the same.

 

EDIT: Contrast in the VC is fine in XP 11.11r2, also the reflections from outside is not on screens. My Bad, I am sorry for testing it in 11.20vr1 first. Nice job. (S/shot 3)

Awesome works though

Oh my...! Added now! Thanks again!

Is there a way to install this plane in Linux? I see only a win and an OS installer file....

Sort answer no.

Longer one...You need to have Gizmo plugin for Linux. Was available few months ago, but now, due to the lack of interest from Linux users, Gizmo is not support Linux any more. 

If you have the plugin, then you can use wine to install the plane.

Hello,

Do you have an other paintkit available with more layers ?

Thanks

Patrick

Currently no, because I'm planning in the future to redo the whole 3D from scratch. If I find some time in the next days, I might do something for the current layout.

additional information -  Gizmo64 a plugin for the X-Plane flight simulator that lets you program in Lua Script seems to be requesting x-aviation licensing...

Is there a "fix" for this? I was really confused when I loaded up X-plane to be greeted by something asking for a license.

Would be really nice if this used sasl rather than Gizmo64 since it does not require the authentication part of that plugin.

But it doesn't, and you're getting something for free. Can't be too nitpicky all the time.

Hey no argument here and I wasn't being nitpicky or unappreciative of this fantastic freeware. But it's a little annoying that I have to close Gizmo64 everytime I use X-Plane even though I have no planes that require authentication. Now if Gizmo64 actually has the ability to not prompt for user/password everytime that would be fantastic :)

You mean to close the popup window, not the Gizmo plugin, right? 

Re SASL: I'm using Gizmo in my payware projects (aka DC9), so when I have some to spend to do some stuff for Avanti, it is logical that I will go with what I'm using on a daily basis. After all it is proven that Gizmo is very powerful, with 2 of the best aircraft simulations, run on Gizmo (IXEG 733 and LES Saab 340A). And since I want that horsepower available to me, for things that will come, even for the free Avanti, I ask from you, that for now, accept the small annoyance to have to close that popup window.

Regards
