NEWS! - Aircraft Update : X-Crafts updates the E175 and E195 to v2.5

 

News header _ X-Craft E-Jet v2.5.jpg

 

X-Crafts have updated their E-Jets in the E175 and larger E195 to v2.5. The main focus of this update is on Performance optimization, and for users with lower-end machines that are most likely here to notice a performance increase. These two aircraft should not to be confused with the upcoming E-Jet Family aircraft that are now in development at X-Crafts.

 

X-Crafts also note this v2.5 will be the final concluded update for these aircraft in the foreseeable future, to concentrate on the all new E-Jet Family series. And the update also covers the final change over to the full X-Plane Vulkan/Metal support.

 

V2.5 Update notes

  • Converted textures from PNG format to DDS format. This finalizes full Vulkan/Metal compatibility.
  • Cockpit and Fuselage textures now also allow Resolution change. This depends on the "Texture Quality" slider in your X-Plane settings.
  • Fixed a bug where the shadows of the exterior of the plane were not rendered properly in the 3D cockpit view.
  • Included Better Pushback in the package

 

X-Crafts also recommend a full clean download of the aircraft from the X-Plane.OrgStore (not a Skunkcrafts update) for a good installation.
