NEWS! - Laminar Research releases X-Plane 12 Public Beta 4!


X-Plane 12 Beta B4 NEWS!.jpg


Laminar Research has released public Beta No. 4. And it is a big one folks, huge in fact! a full 2.6Gb of updates and changes. So run your X-Plane Installer. It is important to check the "Beta" tickbox" to get the update.

Although the changelog is quite extensive, there is a large component we are not seeing here.

One update here is interesting. "XPD-13001 Marked X-Plane 11 as an “old key” in X-Plane 12". Notable has been a lot of crashes (CTD) because X-Plane 12 is not recognising the XP12 moniker (.aft file), even though it is there. So hopefully this bug has now been fixed.


Users are noting far better cloud formations and even a better framerate which is good news for all ears, so it is a worthy if large update to do.
