Better Pushback Updated to v0.48

nobody, apparently.

The highly popular Better Pushback plugin from Skiselkov (aka Toto from HotStart) has been updated to v0.48. The latest version brings in Vulkan and Metal compatibility as well as improved performance and a bug fix.

Here’s the full changelog for v0.48:


  • Rewrote path rendering to add support for Vulkan and Metal rendering in X-Plane 11.50
  • Asynchronous tug loading - starting pushback will no longer lag the simulator as BetterPushback is loading in the tug model. Instead, the load will happen invisibly in the background.


  • Implemented workaround for when X-Plane returns inverted-Y coordinate at certain sceneries using custom terminal buildings with inverted normals on the roof.

The updated version of the plugin can be found on Github here. Our No Money Mondays Feature of Better Pushback can be viewed here.
