I sincerely love this game, but after the recent updates, the game has gotten a bit lame. When X-plane removed two player multiplayer, they also removed pvp, which was the only reason why I liked this game more than Aerofly fs. I also feel like X-plane should add some gliders, this would add another aspect to the beautiful scenery that X-Plane 10 has. I love this game, but there are a lot of things that could be done better Thanks for reading!
I’m on an iPad 7th generation iPad and when I try to fly a plane, it keeps kicking me out of the app can you please help me.
The APU no longer works in the 737
I can’t turn the apu generator on please fix and could you add atc or ai traffic but other then that good game
Great app except i just bought a 747-400 and it won’t let me take off and i try doing a landing but it just keeps stalling.
Flap switch not functioning
I wish you could add world traffic ( ai airplanes ) in the game as it would make the the experience more better
This game is just,WHOOO! Its a really good game however. But the land should be 3D not flat.super good game 5 stars! 😍
You have 2 planes and everything else costs money. For the challenges you need certain planes which cost money
X-Plane 10 need more free planes. At least make one commercial plane free. Also, at least make a 24 hour free trial for the global scenery like the paid planes. Other than that it’s one of the best flight simulators for mobile. I’d recommend it.
I’ve been playing for years and all the sudden the yoke doesn’t work. i made sure all the failures are off and everything is set to working. restarted the app a few times.. nothing is fixing it. rudder works, throttles work, it’s as if i don’t have hydraulics. can’t control the plane. PLEASE FIX
Runs well for the most part, disappointed to find out that after paying, most of the planes have nothing going on in the cockpit, particularly disappointed in the F4-Phantom, can’t do anything in the cockpit except move an unlabelled lever, so the only way to fly it is to have it set to ‘engines already on’. The font is pretty nice and clear in some aircraft, and then completely illegible and sometimes no extra label when you press and hold on others. Using an IPhone 11 and am constantly needing to recalibrate after every turn, climb or dive. Roll seems fine. Smaller planes are able to be landed but anything big that takes time to swing just isn’t happening, can make it work in free flight because the flight pauses when you open the menu to recalibrate, but in multiplayer it doesn’t pause, so when I tilt the screen to centre, the aircraft starts getting momentum in usually the wrong direction, and when trying to land a 747, it just takes too long to straighten back out, Maybe it’s my phone, but its out of the box a week ago, maybe it’s just part of having a cellphone run a PC game haha. Either way still a great job everyone, and I’ll be sticking around for the improvements. Just thought I’d bring up those in case something can be done. Thanks for your time!
