swift is now compatible with X-Plane VULKAN!

Recommended Posts

A new swift alpha version is available, 0.9.5 with Vulkan and Metal support for X-Plane:

Download: https://github.com/swift-project/pilotclient/releases/tag/v0.9.5.113

A few things to note:

  • TCAS is only available in X-Plane 11.50
  • Aircraft labels are only available when using Vulkan or Metal
  • Linux users should review the list of dependencies in the installation guide
  • The old OBJ7 ("Legacy CSL") format is not supported, as it is not Vulkan compatible. The IVAO CSL format (used by the X-CSL package) is not supported. If you want to use X-CSL you will need to process the models first using CSL2XSB to convert them to XSB CSL format (the same is needed when using xPilot). On Windows, the CSL2XSB script is included with swift to make this easier
  • This version of swift also introduces a new log message system. You should not notice any difference, as it is all behind-the-scenes. This is the first step on the long road towards reducing complexity. So please be especially on the look-out for any new bugs relating to log messages
  • X-Plane 10 is no longer supported

In the meantime stable Alpha has been released. Don't get spooked by the term "Alpha"! These are stable program versions, almost all users of swift have been using these Alpha versions for months on end now, they work fine!

  • Fixed: X-Plane failing to load certain models.
  • Fixed: error when downloading xswiftbus via setup wizard.
  • Fixed: log message issue affecting distributed Linux.
  • Fixed: mapping tool issue affecting MacOS.
  • X-Plane labels: set maximum draw distance 10km.
  • X-Plane map: fixed missing planes.
  • X-Plane map: planes have labels and correct headings.
