Dovetail - Anyone biting?

Recommended Posts

Just got an email stating that if you buy now, you will get the DA42. Someone said it is 64bit, but looking at videos is not always the best way to truly see the product.

I bought it. Curious to see how it feels/actually looks like.

I pre-ordered it, will run along side my FSX-SE (PMDG stuff only), P3D and Xplane

I'll wait until the full version comes out and read reviews on it. Not really interested in the school version, I already know how to fly. Right now I am really happy with P3D.

Geez, I have not really follow this much since they mentioned steam, but I just noticed that there are 2 products LOL 

The school and the flightsim. Wow, I should stop my skip reading. 

 

So, knowing there are 2, when will the Flight Simulator be released? I found a thread where Martin seemed to answer every question thrown at him and is very will

liked and respected here in the community. It sounds like the Simulator is going to be a long term commitment.

 

So all of you that have said yes your getting the school version, but what about the sim itself?

 

What is the most exciting thing you see in either of these 2 versions?

I think they are talking about the end of 2016 for the full version. I have watched a couple of videos on Youtube of the school version, and frankly was not impressed.

As far as i am concerned, it depends on third-party support.

 

I am not expecting it to have any 'credible' addons by default, same applies to weather.

FTX Global not 'credible' enough for you

Someone said it is 64bit

 64bit does not make a simulator better or nicer looking...

 

Unless there is not a new "world-shaking" simulator, I stay with P3D. Too much invested to make a transition to a new platform.

 

Also the Dovetail sim is based (at the end) on MS FSX technology.

Flight School looks terrible and the full version is a better FSX SE.

Been a Dovetail games customer for a couple of years. Most of their stuff works around 85%, and the bugs it comes with usually are there for keeps.

There is a dedicated forum for Dovetail's flight school and sim with extensive threads covering all kinds of topics. Might want to check there for infos instead of posting in the P3D forum.

good catch.  yeah, this thread really doesn't belong here...almost seems like someone is trying to drive a wedge through the P3D supporters.

From what I've noticed in the posted video, there is still quite a bit of autogen popup and blurrie problems,  two which I can't stand. Will stick to XP10 as it does not have these problems at all.

I wanted to address p3d users specifically. Seemed logical to me. Sorry.

Perhaps, but I think "the plug" would have been better suited for FSX users, as this appears to be an evolution from that.  P3D, while still based on FSX code, just feels more advanced, but that's just my own opinion.  With version 3 in full swing, I think there are a lot of v3 owners who are quite content, myself included.  When DTG comes out with their full flight sim, then that may be the time to assess and compare.

 

Again, what I wrote above is expressed opinion from me and others may disagree, which is fine.

I'm not interested in starting over with add ons. The train sim guys say DTG are notorious for selling you something and not ever fixing the bugs. The videos I saw make it look like an Xbox release with no actual in game footage.

I'm still confused as to what I'm buying.

DTG appears to have separated out the learning from the flying.  Their flight school sim is designed for those who don't know much about flying and teaching them how.  The full sim, released date unknown, is designed for those who know how to fly and want to add their own content like airports, scenery, etc. (basically like FSX, P3D, X-Plane).  It looks like the real selling point is the 64-bit code.

So far I've seen nothing that is even remotely attractive to purchase…

 

I certainly hope the full-blown simulator is a huge leap over flight school because we don't really need a re-skinned FSX in 2016.
