A pair of new screenshots from Laminar Research shows off the latest work on X-Plane 12 with a shot of an airport taxiway with markings and a very nice shot of an SR22. Let’s have a look!
Featuring the SR22
The Cirrus SR22 is the feature of these two latest screenshots. One shows off a complex taxiway at Santa Monica airport and runway with plenty of parked aircraft while the second shot is showing off the Los Angeles city skyline, a low sun angle, atmospheric haze, and some pretty good lighting effects all around.
A friend of mine also pointed out that there’s a Bell 206 (helicopter) parked on the ramp. No idea if this is an older model from X-Plane 10 or if this is a revamped helicopter that’s shipping with the sim.
Small collections of images continue to trickle out as X-Plane 12’s development builds continue to progress. We’ve not yet heard if they are approaching a beta status but it does sound like developers are getting an early look at the sim now as they make plans for and aim to release new content or upgraded aircraft from X-Plane 11.
As always, I’ll be keeping a keen eye out for more news on this as X-Plane 12 develops.
