  1. Absolutely Jim. This is why we want to make such things a distant memory with our new sim. Less time fiddling, more time flying is our goal. - Martin
  2. There is no big secret behind the delay. We just wanted to spend more time working on the new sim. - Martin
  3. Our head are down and we are still working hard on it. We are happy with how things are progressing and look forward to sharing it with you all in the near the future. - Martin
  4. Just to clear things up the plan has not changed. We still developing using the FSX engine as the core. There are no plans to switch to UE4 or any other engine, - Martin
  5. We do indeed Raj and we are looking very closely at VR. It seems an ideal match for simulation. At the moment the VR hardware market is very unsettled. Our plan is to wait a while until the situation evens out before committing to VR support. - Martin
  6. There is not much I can say at this point Sam. Our heads our down and we are working hard on the new sim. I can confirm that we have started to roll out early preview builds of the sim to a few selective partners and members of the flight sim community in order to collect initial feedback. We are currently exploring methods for possibly expanding this practice to a wider group over the coming months. - Martin
  7. I'm still here! However, I am sadly leaving the Dovetail Games flight team to go work on our new project Dovetail Live. I will be about for a while until we find someone new to replace me.. That leaves an opening for a new community manager though. So we figured where better to look for a new flight sim community manager than the flight community? If you live in the UK, you are a keen flight simmer, and want to be part of the Dovetail Games flight team please get in touch. - Martin
  8. Want to work in the video games industry? Want to be part of the Dovetail Games Flight Simulation team? We are looking for a new Community Manager to join our team. http://www.dovetailgames.com/vacancies/2017/jan/30/community-manager-flight - Martin
  9. We put together a great value bundle of our latest and greatest Train Simulator content in TS 2017 Pioneers Edition, 5 great routes for £29.99 / $44.99 that also comes with a feature called complete my collection that means you only pay for content you don't already own. As an added bonus if you own all five of these routes included in the Pioneers Edition you will be granted access to the beta for Train Sim World when it starts on Dec 8th. The beta programme will run until Dec 19th. - Martin

  11. Earlier this year, we announced the development of our new flight simulator, which generated an incredible amount of excitement in the community. We would like to thank you all for the tremendous amount of interest and support we have received so far. Based on your feedback, we have been focusing on three key areas: visuals, performance and experience, all of which are instrumental to the hobby. In order to further enhance these areas, we have made the decision to postpone the release of this project. In the meantime, we expect to have a detailed development update for you in the New Year. As a team, we are incredibly excited to share what we have been up to! Until then, we hope you have a fantastic holiday season and look forward to making 2017 a great year for flight simulation.

  13. You can never please everyone ErichB, so it is hard to say. We have always said that this is long term project for us. Development is not going to stop once we release it. - Martin
  14. Yes, although "prettier" is subjective. What I can say is that a number graphical improvements have been implemented in the sim since Flight School. - Martin I can't comment on the fine details of our partnerships with developers for a number of obvious reason. What I can say is that we are working with a select group of well known developers at this time. This is not because we want to exclude any developers, but rather we already had existing relationships with them, so it made sense to start with them. Over time we expect that range of developers to expand. - Martin No idea. P3D are off doing their thing and we are doing ours. Our focus is on developing the best flight simulator we can. We don't worry about what other developers are doing, instead we are concentrate on what simmers tell us they want. - Martin I can't comment on what developers we are working with at this time. - Martin Outerra looks very nice, but the world is made up of far more than grass and trees. - Martin
  15. Hi Jhan, From the top. - Yes the new sim will be 64 bit - We are not really using one particular graphics engine. The base engine is same as FSX, but we have heavily modified it, and we are using other plugins and software too. It is really a mixture of systems. - There are currently no plans for backwards compatibility. - Improvements have been made to the ATC. It depends what you consider to be better. We have long term plans for further development of the ATC beyond this too. - The new sim will be open to third party developers. It is completely up to them what sort of content they want to make for it. We will just be providing them with the tools to do so. - Martin
