Welcome to the X-Plane 12 Dev Deep-Dives series. In this series of content, FSElite goes behind the scenes with the Laminar Research team on a huge number of topics with the upcoming release of X-Plane 12.

During the next few weeks, we will learn about all aspects of X-Plane 12 from the marketing and sound design to the new flight model and advanced rendering engine. Each episode will have a specific focus giving you as much insight into X-Plane 12 as possible.

During this discussion, Jordan talks to Ben from the Laminar Research team who gives us insight into how all the data is then visually represented in the simulator. Everything about the rendering and lighting engine has been created from scratch to give a truly dynamic environment for us to fly in.

Sit back and enjoy our Dev Deep Dive series with X-Plane 12.
