Stephen Posted September 8, 2022 Report Share Posted September 8, 2022 NEWS! - X-Plane 12 second wave updates and releases Laminar Research have already released b2 (Beta 2) of X-Plane12, and the dev notes are here, Known Bugs Incomplete or missing features in Alpha/Early Access: Master-external visual networking Water/land edges look terrible New XPLM APIs In progress features: Tuning lighting & fog LIT textures Performance VR holodeck lighting XPD-11214 Plane Maker CG/Lights/Tanks Position Markers Not Visible. XPD-12826 Joystick axis mapping symbols are missing. XPD-12879 Wake turbulence broken for 3rd party integrations. Bug Fixes Beta 2 Turned off in-app purchase temporarily. XPD-12932 Demo mode pop up text says Seattle not Portland. Beta 1 Rename of alpha 38 and Early Access launch. I found b2 to be far more stable and better than the X-Plane12b1 initial release, weird as not much is noted in the Dev notes, but it is certainly more refined? So keep that installer close as Laminar Research do further initial refinements to the new simulator version.
