Introducing Flight Sim World!

Recommended Posts

Today is the day!

We are delighted to (finally) let you know that Flight Sim World™, will be released into Steam’s Early Access program in the coming weeks.Copy from the press release is as follows:

Based on benchmark flight simulation technology, Flight Sim World will provide players with an unprecedented level of realism and detail. Its officially licensed GA aircraft will be the most authentic and detailed in-sim representations on the market, faithfully replicating their real world counterparts, with every gauge and switch fully operational.

Not only do these aircraft look like the real thing, but they also interact with the environment in an accurate way. A combination of atmospheric effects and advanced behind-the-scenes mechanics, result in a remarkably unique home simulation experience. Watch the raindrops race across your windscreen in stormy weather, while the physics engine challenges you with true-to-life aircraft behavior, including edge-of-envelope spins and stalls.

Whether you want to plan a peaceful flight somewhere sunny or test your skills with tricky situations fraught with bad weather and engine failures, the comprehensive Flight Planner gives you full control over weather, location and time of day, also allowing you to add random events that will make your time in the air even more challenging. For those who want to focus more on content creation, also included with Flight Sim World is the Pro Mission Editor, which is a professional tool which allows players to create more complex missions.

“The time has come for a new flight simulator which really focuses on the physical quality of the aircraft and a flight model which brings them to life”, said Executive Producer Stephen Hood. “After doing some intensive work on the game engine – such as providing a much-needed 64 bit element – we now have a flight simulation platform which will allow us and our partners to focus on creating new and exciting ways for simmers to benefit from these advances. New features and expansions to Flight Sim World will be rolled out as part of the Early Access program and beyond, reinforcing our absolute commitment to the hobby.

In addition to providing core updates and expansions, Flight Sim World will build on Dovetail Games’ extensive partnership publishing program, allowing high quality add-on developers and publishers to make available excellent additional content such as aircraft, airports, missions, and scenery.

“We have already built relationships with some of the best and brightest flight simulation developers in the industry”, added Simon Sauntson, Head of Third Party at Dovetail Games. “Flight Sim World will expand on those partnerships as we continue to secure premium content for our players. In addition to growing existing partnerships, we are reaching out to the wider development community to foster new relationships and bring top quality content to FSW”

Available May 2017 on Steam Early Access

We are releasing in Early Access, which essentially means we are giving everyone a chance to get involved in the development process. The sim isn't finished but we would like as many people as possible to come along for the ride :biggrin:

I look forward to being able to purchase on Steam.  Is this an entirely new engine or still based on the old FSX Code?  Does this cover the entire planet?

Sure thing. The aircraft are finished (the core aircraft, not the AI aircraft). Multiplayer functionality is not final, nor is the weather system in game. We are also going to expand on our flight planner as well as Steam workshop functionality for the Pro Mission Editor and the flight planner. 

In addition, we will we working with you to identify and fix any issues that come up before release :D

Thank you for your reply Aimee.  DTG's new sim looks good, though i rather liked the new Train Sim as well.  Congratulations and here's hoping for a successful launch.
