Just saw it, really nice. Just hope they don't try to sell us a FSX/P3D updated version, would be nice if they followed DTG's recipes.

Don't know what that means, but I think it will be FSW quality :) We will see! Anybody interested in buying it?

The P3D Just Flight Arrow III is far above the quality of the Carenado birds in FSW,

I hope they have not dumbed it down too much, that would be a shame

I just hope people are happy with it and do their homework before purchasing it, that's all I was trying to say! There is no way everyone is going to like this first DLC offering, but at least we are officially in the DLC and 3rd party game. Well we will be when it is actually for sale ;)

Once again everyone enjoy all the sim's that you like! And welcome to the FSW forum's :)

You mean PBR materials? Yes I hope so too. I was reading this on Gibbage's FB page:

"The new/old engine seems VERY powerful and many of the old FSX tools are similar, but the new PBR shader is SUPER powerful. Its going to take a VERY VERY long time for 3rd party dev's to explore the full limits of PRB in FSW and I really look forward to seeing what people can do."

I guess they don't like Cessna.  That is about the only thing I don't like about FSW.  I've been a RW Cessna pilot all my life. I have flown Piper Saratogas in real life, but never really liked them as much as Cessnas. It saddens me to see no Cessna in FSW, so I have hardly flown the sim at all, not nearly as much as if I had a Cessna.  And now, for their first DLC, what do we get, another Piper.  So sad. :-(

I have both versions for FSX and both are superb.
Really a great news and an excellent addition to FSW.

Might have something to do with licencing costs or restrictions. That's the reason the Cessna wasn't in Prepar3d as far as I'm aware, someone correct me on that.

What if only comes with 2 Rolls Royce engines :) I sure hope they offer a jet before Christmas, but even then I don't think they will be happy, unless they drop every jet at one time that has ever flown in the skies, so everyone can have their favorite jet :)

Even when they get them, something will be wrong with them :) Just kidding people, it's a simulator. Enjoy ALL your sim's, and jet's, and have fun! Not like there aren't choices now!

FSW and 3rd party developer's, bring on the DLC, add on's, scenery, airports, weather 3rd party, river's, valley's, whatever. I don't care if it's something I don't like as long as other people are happy. Open those flood gates, pretty please. And oh yeah, really good quality too!

I'm guessing that is because they are leaving that slot clear for A2A's Cessna singles. A2A are a development partner for FSW, as evidenced by A2A's Accufeel being already part of FSW by default, and you can tell too, try a sideslip in P3D or FSX default and then try one in Flight Sim World and you can see the default flight model is way better in FSW.

Nice to see Just Flight's PA-28 coming to FSW. I was pretty sure their PA-28s and their Trinidad and Tobago would be among the first DLCs for FSW. They are excellent add-ons too, well worth getting. I'd put money on A2A's Piper Commanche and Cessna 172 showing up for FSW fairly soon, and if not that, then certainly one from Carenado, since they too are on board with FSW.

With regard to Rolls Royce, I'd like to see the aeroplane with a single Rolls Royce engine and Supermarine on the maker's nameplate, you know the one, and I'm betting we will too, because that's another A2A classic.

Note too that Just Flight's DC-10 has just been made P3D V4 compatible, and so they are definitely in the jet market as well, and updating their catalogue, and that one is a DLC for FSX-SE available via Steam and from JF's site as well, so you can take a good bet on that one showing up for FSW.

Personally, with JF and A2A on board, any concerns about third party developer support have well gone out of the window as far as I'm concerned, because they are two of the best developers out there and their recent GA single releases are certainly the best ones you can get.

With all these quality sim options suddenly available with seemingly limitless potential, i wish I would have listened to my mother and married for money instead of love.

i would guess that the Aircraft part of the SDK is complete or broadly similar to FSX-Se

Presumably there are parts of the sim which are relatively complete, it is after all using a very similar structure to FSX in many ways, and whilst there may not be an 'officially available' SDK, it is fairly obvious that some of the developers who were involved from the start, i.e. Simul, A2A, Carenado, Orbx and Turbulent Designs will have some kind of guideline documentation on what can and cannot be done. It's my guess that Turbulent Design's new TerraFlora add-on will end up FSW compatible fairly soon, I'm sure they'll have been working on that being compatible.

It doesn't surprise me that Just Flight would be among those privy to that info too, since they have been working with Dovetail for quite a while via FSX-SE releases and they said right from the start they would be involved, moreover, they were one of the few developers which made DLC for AeroFly FS1 and much of their content is in P3D by default too, so they have a history of being willing to get involved with new sims at the early stages.

There are actually two other DLCs already available for Flight Sim World, although they are not officially being touted as FSW releases, these being FS Flight Control and a number of UK2000 airport sceneries, all of which do have an FSW installer option.

I was hoping it would be a medium featured tubeliner instead.

 

I feel FSW really needs to show it will also be a full featured sim and not purely GA based.

VB - there's an airliner tailfin icon on the Aircraft selection screen, and the airport jetways move when AI airliners (imported from FSX & FSX-SE) dock and undock :happy:

Hopefully all the current add-ons for FSX-SE will become FSW-compatible in time, either included as default or as add-ons, along with many others of course!

Will the 3rd party aircraft have the excellent Cold & Dark and pop up check-list systems of the default aircraft?

I would hope that functionality would be something DTG would push for where officially sanctioned add-ons are concerned, but I guess it would to some extent depend on how easy it is to do and if there are developer tools available which make it easy to do.

I am not 100% sure about this, but I think Cryss from Dovetail posted somewhere that it had an awesome checklist. I assume he mean's like the ones they just released for Cold & Dark, remember when they gave us that Update they said 3rd party people could customize it to their liking, I think, and this is just speculation, knowing Just Flight was working on this plane. The Just Flight PA-28R Arrow III, just don't kknow where I saw it. I think it was on my Discord server :)

Absolutely bring it on! Why not? They need to find out if 3rd party thing's break their code in some way! Think about it, if, when, where, it goes Gold, RTM, whatever, if Dovetail is true to their word and making boat loads of money they will always be updating it just like it was in Early Access! If it works out the right way. Which I think it will, or sure hope so. I like all of the sim's!
