Laminar Research Releases System Requirements For X-Plane 12

Pin It

As release gets closer, laminar research has now released the system requirements for X-Plane 12. No surprise, to run well (recommended requirements) will require a fairly high-end computer. A demo version of the sim will be available to try before purchase.

X-Plane 12 System Requirements.

Minimum Hardware Requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Core i3, i5, i7, or i9 CPU with 4 or more cores, or AMD Ryzen 3, 5, 7 or 9. (Those with other CPUs should try the demo before purchasing.)
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Video Card: a DirectX 11-capable video card from NVIDIA or AMD with at least 2 GB VRAM

If your system is borderline, we encourage you to try the demo first. The full version of the simulator will perform exactly the same as the demo, neither better nor worse.

Recommended Hardware Requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5 8600k or Ryzen 5 3500 or better
  • Memory: 16-24 GB RAM or more
  • Video Card: a DirectX 12-capable video card from NVIDIA or AMD with at least 4 GB VRAM (GeForce GTX 1070 or better, or similar from AMD)

Supported Video Cards:

  • NVIDIA: NVIDIA GeForce 900 or newer, driver version 470.82 or newer
  • AMD: AMD Radeon RX 500 or newer, driver version Adrenaline 21.11.2 or newer

Supported Operating Systems:

  • OS X: OS X 10.15 or newer (e.g. Catalina, Big Sur, or Monterey)
  • Windows: Windows 10 or 11, 64-bit
  • Linux: Varies

While X-Plane 12 will run on Linux, we don't provide support for specific distributions; if you want to run on Linux, you will need to try X-Plane on your distribution to see if it is compatible. With that in mind, we have developers using Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 LTS successfully.

We require the proprietary driver from NVIDIA to run X-Plane. We require the Mesa drivers for AMD to run X-Plane.

VSKYLABS Announces Turbine RC Helicopter For X-Plane

Pin It

VSKYLABS is specialized in mini/micro-models simulation engineering using LR X-Plane flight simulator, for various applications. Nowadays...developing high-definition RC (Radio Controlled) models intended to become add-on projects for X-Plane.

One of the subjects is the following (Work-In-Progress) highly defined Turbine-powered 1:7 scale RC model helicopter. Being developed by RC professionals...this goes "as real as it gets" especially with RC transmitter-type Joystick and also in VR!

Stay tuned for more details!

Windsock Simulations Update On Bergamo LIME V2 XP

Pin It

We have been gone for a little while having a rest from scenery design over the holiday period, but today we would like to announce Bergamo LIME Airport V2, with our partners Tailstrike Designs. The airport includes the extended terminal, as well as extended north apron of the airport, and will include all the usual things such as SAM gates and PBR ground textures. We are entering beta this week, and hope to get the product out for you soon!

Orio al Serio International Airport, branded as Milan Bergamo Airport, is the third busiest international airport in Italy. It is located in the municipal territory of Orio al Serio, 3.7 km southeast of Bergamo in Italy. The airport is 45 km (28 mi) north-east of Milan, where it operates alongside Malpensa Airport and Linate Airport, the city's other two primary airports. The airport served almost 13 million passengers in 2018.
