      SkyMaxx Pro 1.3 Update Released

      By X-Pilot, in Plugins,

      X-Aviation and Maxx-XP have released an update for SkyMaxx Pro, bringing the version number to 1.3!
      This update includes further enhancements and optimizations in performance, including features like forced cirrus layers for a more realistic environment and higher resolution textures than in previous versions.
      You can read more about this update here.
      A list of what has been updated includes:
      Clouds faded out due to visibility are culled, to further improve performance
      New cumulus cloud puff textures
      Clouds should be consistent across multiple displays
      New config option to always force at least one cirrus layer (on by default). If no cirrus layer comes in from X-Plane's datarefs, we create one at 9000 meters
      Improved error handling in the event initialization fails
      Cloud visibility is generally increased
      Random variation added to cumulonimbus cloud sizes
      Prevents a source of a potential crash reported by one user
      Memory leak fixed with latest Gizmo build

      Leading Edge Simulations and X-Aviation are happy to announce the release of the long awaited Saab 340A for X-Plane 10!
      This aircraft features a study level simulation based on the real aircraft, custom programmed from the ground up! You can grab yours today at the Saab 340A product page on X-Aviation!
      The Saab 340A is entirely simulated based on the real world manuals. All of the systems are entirely custom programmed, including the autopilot, CRT displays (EHSI and EADI), powerplant, hydraulics and more! Our entire simulation has been certified as true-to-life by a test group of five real world Saab 340 pilots. They were amazed at our accurate simulation, and you will be too!
