Orbx TrueEarth Great Britain Central X-Plane 12


X-Plained.Com is pleased to announce on behalf of Orbx the following awesome news namely ….the release of TrueEarth Great Britain Central which is now completed.

According to Orbx “TrueEarth GB Central covers a massive area of 59,383km2 of hand corrected imagery covering the entire central region. This update includes: 3D trees throughout with individually set heights, upgraded water masking using X-Plane v12’s new water model, soundscape support, such as birds and vehicles and fully native seasonal changes.”

Of particular note are metropolitan areas such as Liverpool, Manchester, and Newcastle. We have also faithfully recreated scenic areas such as the Lake District, the Peak District, Snowdonia National Park, the North Yorkshire Moors, and the North Wales Coast/Llandudno. If you like castles and cathedrals, then you’ll be excited about the hundreds of POIs, especially around Bangor, Caernarfon, Cumbria, Northumbria, and Yorkshire.”

Moved to France

It has been very quiet for a while although Paul Beckwith wrote many many reviews for you and the X-Plane community. And that’s it. Angelique, your personal reporter didn’t write anything this year. Why you could ask? Angelique and partner emigrated this year from the Netherlands to France. Wow, nice, awesome ….. but the down side is that she didn’t had the time to write a review or to test something. Not because she wanted, but because she was too busy organising things or renovating the house we bought. No, it wasn’t an old house, but the interior wasn’t really our taste.

Anyway, Angelique hopes to start again writing reviews somewhere in 2024. In the main time Paul continues with his reviews and hopefully Andy returns too.

And the best end can be ……Happy Holidays to all of You and don’t forget to enjoy every day. We say thank you to all and to all who made a donation and last but not least, best wishes for the holidays and New Year.

Registration Disabled!

Registration is temporarily unavailable.

I, your personal reporter Angelique van Campen apologise for any inconvenience. Last week was a crazy week in respect to X-Plained.Com. Worldwide complex and bruce force attacks are high according to Wordfence which is our gate protection system. We had several attacks from bots and humans who tried via many illegal ways to get an account or to try to break in. Nobody succeed yet. 

But no worry for those who have already a registration and thus an account with us, will still have access to all our downloads and coming updated packages and will be helped. We regret that we had to take this decision to disable new registrations, but it seems too many people and bots are not interested in X-Plained.Com, but only in breaking down our website.

As said before, you can still use the contact form for any other questions, thoughts or suggestions, but not for requesting a new account. New account requests are, keep that in mind, not answered.

Thank You for your understanding.

On Behalf of the whole X-Plained.Com team,
Angelique van Campen

Airport Review | Ocean State Sceneries KPVC

Our dedicated reviewer Paul Beckwith flies from Boston via via to KPVC – Provincetown Municipal Airport which is only a flight of 20 minutes. The modeled airport from Ocean State Sceneries seems according to Paul worth his visit and exploration.

Paul writes “Ultimately, I found myself spending a lot of time at KPVC while doing this review and it is an airport I will return to time and again. The charm and character of the New England seashore pervade the scenery and the nuances of a small airport are elegantly captured. While the area does benefit from satellite imagery, the developer’s choice to add the features of Race Point beach and lighthouse does help to bring the seashore to the X-Plane default terrain.”

But there’s more “The VFR landmarks of the two additional lighthouses, various channel markers, the breakwater, and the Pilgrim Monument add to the overall value of the project. If you choose to add satellite imagery and X-World scenery to experience the airport as the developer envisioned it, you will simply add something incredible to an airport that is already amazing.”

Paul hasn’t finished yet. Want to know all the ins and outs of this scenery package? Check it out via Paul’s in-depth review link.

FlyWithLua Plus Updated to v2.8.9

Our Update March 29th, 2023 | Official FlyWithLua NG X-Plane 11 version 2.8.9

At X-Plained we’re very pleased to inform you that, in consult with X-Friese, we are able to offer you his latest FlyWithLua NG (Next Generation) for X-Plane 11 plugin from X-Friese. As X-Friese is always saying ….. the FlyWithLua story is going on!

This is the official brand version of FlyWithLua NG for X-Plane 11, and, the same as for the previous version, it will no longer support X-Plane 10 or X-Plane 9. All X-Plane 9 users (are there any out there?) must stay at FlyWithLua 2.4.x and follow the instructions to convert FlyWithLua 2.4.x into X-Plane 9 mode.

Going forward NG will be the only developed FlyWithLua version. Support will generally be a community effort. And of course the official brand new version of FlyWithLua NG is running on all three platforms, Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. Thanks a lot to Sparker for making this possible. Without him, FlyWithLua would be a Windows plugin only.

You can grab your personal copy via this download page, but you need to be a registered simmers to be able to download it.
