What is the Reality Expansion Pack?
The Reality Expansion Pack (REP) is a software package that enhances the default Xplane 11 aircraft with new features and realism. It is developed by SimCoders, a team of passionate Xplane enthusiasts and programmers. The REP acts over different aspects of the aircraft, such as:
The flight dynamics: The REP replaces the default flight model with a custom one that matches the real world data. The REP also adds realistic effects such as wind gusts, prop wash, torque, P-factor, and more.
The sounds: The REP adds extra sounds to the aircraft, such as engine startup and shutdown, cockpit switches and buttons, landing gear and flaps, wind noise and turbulence, and more.
The 3D objects: The REP adds extra 3D objects to the aircraft, such as chocks and tie-downs, GPU and fuel truck, passengers and cargo, and more.
The walkaround: The REP allows you to perform an interactive walkaround of the aircraft before each flight. You can check the condition of the tires, brakes, lights, antennas, pitot tubes, fuel tanks, oil level, and more.
The kneeboard: The REP adds a custom kneeboard to the aircraft that contains useful information and checklists. You can access it by pressing Shift+K.
The mass and balance: The REP allows you to customize the weight and balance of the aircraft according to your preferences. You can adjust the fuel load, the number and position of passengers and cargo, and the center of gravity.
The towing system: The REP allows you to tow the aircraft on the ground using a tow bar. You can attach or detach the tow bar by pressing Shift+T.
The maintenance and damages system: The REP simulates the wear and tear of the aircraft over time. You can perform regular maintenance or repair any damages that may occur during your flights. You can access the maintenance report by pressing Shift+M.
