    Spero che parli italiano …
    Svizzero francese parlo naturalmente francese, tedesco (imparato in scuola) et un puo italiano (mia madre era di Oderzo / TV) , ma non parlo inglese
    O 2 domande :
    1. xAmbience sara soltanto su Windows o anche su Mac ?
    2. O sentito parlare di neve (su x-plane.fr) se è vero sara soltanto su le trame generiche di X-Plane o anche su le Orthofoto ?

    Grazie della risposta e cordiali saluti

      Ciao Glah!
      Si, siamo tre italiani.
      xAmbience non è stato rilasciato, gli sviluppatori sono alle prese con dei bug e hanno prolungato la beta. Dovrebbe essere solo Windows come prima versione.
      E’ raro che la neve funzioni su ortophoto, quello che esiste ed è stato rilasciato copre tutto…
