Flight DF/x expiration & v0.4

Recommended Posts

The current version(v0.3) of Flight DF/x expires on the 1st of September.Unfortunately version 0.4 is not yet ready. It won't be ready for about another 2 weeks.If possible I'll try to get another date extension on v0.3 going.Sorry about the inconvenience.Anyhow, the biggest improvement in v0.4 is the addition of the Pilot's log book. Use it to keep track of your flights and cash earned.System sounds were also improved.Weather selector is somewhat better.v0.4 will have more detail information about each airport, but will have fewer routes for now.Regards Dexter "DFX" Kofaflightdfx@dextech.comhttp://www.dextech.com/products/flightdfx

Thank's!I've had a lot of flights using "flight DFX", and it is great!!is it possible to make more flightplans to it??It would be fun to have more airports to travel to.This would be another challenge to keep the bank accont "positive".Both "user interface" and "weather files" seems very well done.Best regards.Lars Peter.;)

Hi Jim,The main purpose for having expiration dates is to minimize the number of versions of Flight DF/x that we have to support.Without expiration dates, we would have to support all version of Flight DF/x starting with version 0.1 from Jan 2000. That type of support can be costly.So instead of putting software out there that we don't support, we've decided to limit the effective life of each version as to not overlap with other versions.Regards Dexter "DFX" Kofaflightdfx@dextech.comhttp://www.dextech.com/products/flightdfx

Hi Lars,The final version of DF/x will have more routes.v 0.4 however will have fewer but more detail routes.For example, passenger count will vary from route to route.Each airport on every route will also have it's own custom outside view. The view of the airport will change according to the time of day.This feature is already available in v 0.3, but is not as detailed.In v 0.3 the number of routes were based on the size of the airport.So bigger airports had more routes than smaller ones.Regards Dexter "DFX" Kofaflightdfx@dextech.comhttp://www.dextech.com/products/flightdfx
