Recap DTG Twitch Stream

Recommended Posts

Just watched the DTG Twitch Stream about FSW.

They said 7 aircraft are included, i noted 6. Is no. 7 a surprise or did i missed one?

Piper PA-18 "Cub"
Piper PA-28 "Cherokee"
Piper PA-34 "Seneca"
Piper PA-46 "Malibu Mirage"
Diamond DA40 "Star"
Diamond DA42 "TwinStar"

Added: Van`s RV-7A

 

Planes looking great, Windshield effects great, shadows smooth.

But environment still looks like FSX. Popping autogen/textures, blurries, stutters. But in the chat Aimee said they have graphic improvement for the ground on the list.

Overall i see a big improvement over Flight School, but still a lot to do.I`m not yet impressed, but there is hope again :)

It is beyond me why they focused on aircraft, rather than on overall environment.

Rain effect and wiggly gauges, but the same old land class issues leftover from FS9.

They clearly have not listened to the community.

Nonsense, ofcourse they have listened to the community :huh: This early access sim looks very promising. I for one am going to approach this very positive.

All piston prop, no turboprops? I guess they can build on that later, but it feels like a narrow focus. Also the list looks like it's driven by licensing deals, so they may be leaning pretty hard on an "official version" marketing angle. That might work if it includes input, flight testing, etc. from the respective aircraft manufacturers.

My guess being it was easier to introduce some GA planes, especially if made by known FSX/P3D developers, than get to the features that really requires a lot of work (autogen popping for example, blurries etc etc).

Same here I am positive, Let's not forget history here, how FSX or P3D looked back then.

I hope they completely overhaul the lighting engine, its about time we had real lights that actually light things up, instead of bright colored textures that don't actually do anything.

That's definitely not in this first release.

There is PBR though that helps with reflections and better representation of lighting on the airplanes.

In my opinion, it is pointless asking for turboprops and/or liners in the stock hangar of a product that will be launched at $/€ 25. This would be completely unrealistic.
Complex aircraft are third party work.

I just watched the stream.  I thought it looks good and some of the future development sounds very promising. I had to laugh during the stream when everyone was being derogatory and stupid in chat and then Cryss says " type !May18 for a free copy"   everyone suddenly wanted a free copy :biggrin:

I have not seen the stream yet, but will also join the "positive gang".

As I stated elsewhere on this forum, I hope that FSW is a success and becomes a worthy replacement for FSX.  Early days yet.
