NEWS! - The Reality Expansion Pack v4.7 with X-Plane 12 support


SimCoders XP12 NEWS.jpg

Simcoders have released the REP-Reality Expansion Pack v4.7 that comes with X-Plane 12 support. This update is freely available for current customers via the SkunkCrafts Updater or by downloading the full package from the X-Plane.OrgStore.


Reality Expansion Pack REP packs are to bring a bit more of the everyday running of a GA light aircraft to life, and to also add in more functionality and extra features not found in the original package. Basically if you have used one REP pack then they are all the same with just the aircraft they are attached to in being different.


Notes on the v4.7 version as per aircraft are noted by SimCoders;


Default Cessna 172SP and Beech Baron 58

The default planes are supported just like in X-Plane 11. Just install REP as described in the manual and you can enjoy the new improved flight dynamics and 3D models Laminar provided with X-Plane 12.

JRollon SF.260

The flight model has been updated to match X-Plane 12 requirements and the 3D rain effect has been added.

Carenado Cessna 210 Centurion v1.x, Beech Bonanza F33 v1.x, Beech Baron v1.x, Piper PA-31 Navajo v1.x

These planes, without REP, do not work properly in X-Plane 12. They miss some animations, have broken sounds, etc.

REP takes care of all of this so the animations are restored, the sounds are fixed, the flight model is updated, and as a bonus, the new 3D rain effect is provided.

Carenado PC12 and all other XP10 planes

These packages just do not work anymore in XP12. We tried to fix them as we did for the others listed above but they are just too old (and some even encrypted) to stand a chance. REP for them will still be updated though, and they will continue work on X-Plane 10 and 11.

Thranda Beaver and Kodiak, and JustFlight DR400

All these packages get the updated flight model. They do not receive the 3D rain yet as the author stated an update is coming for them so there’s no point in doing the same work twice. As soon as the updates will be available, they will be distributed via REP’s Skunkcrafts Updater configuration.

JustFlight Piper Arrows

The Arrows underx X-Plane 12 throw errors that REP cannot fix at this very moment. They will be updated by the author so we’re basically waiting for the fix to be published and then update REP as necessary.

ASDG Piper Cub

This plane is unfortunately abandoned as ASDG disappeared on us few years back. REP for this plane is still updated but the plane won’t be ported to X-Plane 12.


By the way, X-Plane 12 features a beautiful Piper Cub and we’re already working on a REP for it. That’s not a secret anymore.


-Plane 12 is still beta and we do not exclude further updates of v4.7. We continue our work on REP for more X-Plane 12 planes (mostly default planes, as they look gorgous!)


Being desperate I checked out the Bonanza A33A REP, and it does thankfully make the aircraft flyable in X-Plane 12, but the instrument lighting need more illumination, that said I fly my beloved aircraft...  thanks to SimCoders.


All the REP-Reality Expansion Packs can be found here at the X-Plane.OrgStore, and of course you will need the host aircraft to apply the Expansion Pack.

I'd love to see an REP for the Carenado PA42T Cheyenne. It's based off the Navajo so perhaps it could leverage the work on the Navajo REP. The Cheyenne is a great flier in the turbine twin category which I'd love t fly some more especially in Version 12. I find that finding a turboprop that you really enjoy is a tricky affair in X-Plane. Thanks for your contributions to the X-Plane community!
