xVision

A tool that helps simmers to make the most eye-catching virtual
flight experience in X-Plane 11

Why xVision?

If you have ever developed your X-Plane visuals, you know that good results can be achieved only by using good textures and FlyWithLua plugins.
xVision offers you a quick and convenient way to control these resources without manually editing/copying files or any other confusing rubbish.
Furthermore, xVision tool allows you to make adjustments (tweaks) to X-Plane shaders.

Each xVision solution consists of three interrelated parts that affect the visual component of virtual flights: textures, Lua scripts and shader tweaks. All three components could be understood as a coherent whole (package). You can download a solution from the/a file, save, rename, make your own packages.

Use solutions created by simmers, create your own solutions, share your work with other people. It's easy: each solution is a single file, not a bunch of different files that should be installed in different directories with different conditions.



Two ready visual solutions are included in the tool distribution package:

"Classic" theme offers calming shades in the spirit of classical X-Plane 11 environment
"Impressive" theme offers bright and expressive environment. Is this X-Plane? No, it can't be... :)

You can start in just a three clicks.
