In the first instance I have no connection with Laminar Research either physically or electronically.
I understand your frustration with the short time period of use with the demo versions.
I understand the demo is restricted to one airport in the USA and virtually has no (or limited) scenery.
The full acquired versions do have scenery for use. I have XP10 on the DVD boxed set. All the scenery has been loaded although I will and have used a small area.
I also understand that the later XP11 beta versions have or will fix a known problem where scenery has been limited to 60 degrees north or 60 degrees south of the equator.
I am surprised that you have had little response to asking questions directly to XPlane (Laminar Research). I have found their response rate very quick considering I live on the opposite side of the world and their time lag is in the order of 16 hours behind me. I can lodge a query with them late evening, my time and will have a response next morning, my time. Try using the following link at [email protected]
Hope this helps.
Apologies for the delayed response.
There are "tons of addons" available for X-plane. The number products is growing as more and more flight simmers change over from FSX. A reputable gaming store should have a flight sim section holding X-plane software.
I have no connection with the following company. There is a dedicated "shop" available for X-plane users which can be found at http://www.x-plane.org/ They have over 25,000 products available (see bottom of home page). This company is not associated with Laminar Research.
In addition, this company has a dedicated forum for X-plane users who have developed their own software and made available for other users. This link is at http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads Most of the products (look down RHS of page) are "freeware" while some are "payware" and in the odd instance "donate ware"
Hope this also helps as well
