Might be different, will look for it!  In all my years in real life, I've only flown a taildragger once, an acquaintance let me fly his Luscombe 8A.  I have to tell you, I have never flown an aircraft so well harmonized as the old Luscombe was.  It was a pleasure flying the aircraft, just about 100 mph, over the Pennsylvania countryside.  Just little touches controlled the aircraft, it was so sweetly trimmed.  I had to end my flight after about an half hour as obscured thunderstorms started to approach. I let my friend land, and as we rolled to a stop on the grass runway, the rain started to come down.

Only information is on FB?

That's a downer. They can't afford a website they most likely can't afford development costs.

Sorry for being negative here.

What I'd like to see, come to think of it, is a helicopter-centric simulator (besides DCS).

Not a very well developed webpage, but maybe they will be able to grow into the community.  I just hope this isn't some knockoff of the free simulator that's been floating around on the web.

I think that this is the Remex Software product, and it is being revealed at the Cosford 2017 FlightSim Show on Saturday. I will be there, so I will check it out!

Wow! take a look at this new simulator! Looks great in my opinion :ohmy:

https://www.facebook.com/DeadstickSimulator

Didn't know they posted screenshots in the meantime so thanks for the heads up! But yes, that looks utterly awesome! It looks totally real! Also due to the photograph effect with that depth of course, but still: that cockpit and that grass looks great already! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS!!!

Yes, it is! Please, check it out and share as much info as possible!!! I am very interested in this one!

EDIT
I seriously thought this was a real photograph:

Not too bad either (but I do hope to see some screenshots without that depth effect soon!):

Nice visuals, better than any other sim (and GTA-V as well, lol). Seems too good to be true. Given the vast resources needed to make a full-fledged flight sim nowadays, I guess it will have limited scope in terms of scenery, weather, etc. But let's see what comes ouf of it!

From what I've seen with the UIEngine Benchmark, they will use the gpu at a high rate, and they might maximize the Nvidia codecs to get the simulation to the consumer.

O, yes, for sure, I have no doubt this is purely a bush flight sim with a very limited aera to fly around in, probably just one plane for starters, which apparently doesn't have 'deep systems', no GPS, obviously no ATC (who needs it out there), etc. but, so it seems, with superior graphics. In short: it sounds like BIG FUN and totally awesome to me. I even decided to not buy a few addons I was looking at for P3D because I want my money to be ready for this. Yes, I suppose it will be a very limited sim but I do think it could well become a superb experience!

It wouldn't surprise me if the weather, though perhaps limited in 'system' (no real world weather etc.), will look and 'perform' quite good. A real bush flight sim needs real bad word not allowed bush weather!

Well, I didn't manage to get a good look at it.....and it's worth pointing out that I have only just got home from the show!! However, Remex Software had a seminar about this product in the morning, so I expect others to provide the information that you are looking for :smile:

I guess we'll have to wait for the info to appear on their web site.

Flusinews has a small video but it's in German.

Found a short report from the FlightSim Show about Deadstick Sim:

- Meant to offer a new level of immersion to bush flying

- Worlds are smaller, but vastly more detailed than anything seen in flight sim

- Large amount of customisation, and external customisations will affect the flight model

- Gameplay similar to the level of freedom explored in Train Sim World

- Very early development

That's it so far. Disappointed obviously by the Very early development part. I was hoping they would announce the release on the Show. :happy: I suppose this sim won't be here for a few months or so. Or a year. Or more. So up to then I'll have to do with P3D and its landclass scenery or the Aerofly FS 2 and its empty scenery.

"Very early development" unfortunately means the first buyers will be doing user acceptance testing.  However, given the limited scope of the sim with emphasis on graphics there may be less risk of bugs, fewer modules to use within the sim.  I believe most contemporary systems will have no problems with this based on my experience with No Limits Coaster sim, which also has blades of grass, very good water detail, and moving trees.  My fps in that sim are around 70 or so, really hard to discern.  The older sims we use, like P3d and Xplane11, are based on an older, less gpu intensive technology.  They concentrate on flight higher from the ground as opposed to low flying, although my flight in my ultralight at 1000-2000 ft. AGL resolves photoscenery just fine.

Odd. According to a post on Facebook there actually was a demo on the show yesterday: how come no one reported this? Why no updates from the developers? A video of the demo? Reactions of simmers? There MUST have been quite a few people who have seen this demo but I can't find anything about it. Odd.

Patience, young padawan. I am sure that information will be revealed over the coming days by those who attended the event (it was the first seminar of the day at Cosford 2017).

Ok, well, a big disappointment but good to know nevertheless: Deadstick Bush Flight Simulatior is planned to be released in the summer of 2018. So for now I will try to forget about it completely :happy: also because we all know stuff like this usually takes longer to get done than shorter. And now I can start spending money on P3D again LOL

I thought someone posted this already but the game uses the Unity engine.

Concerning the location: it is a fictional location but it is heavily based on real world environments such as Alaska and Idaho.
