  2. Flight Sim World Free Mission Packs With the upcoming closure of Flight Sim World on May 24th, developer Dovetail Games has made the announcement that the mission packs they had created for FSW so far, will now be available for free. There are a total of three mission packs, respectively named ‘Epic Approaches’, ‘The Last Frontier’ and the ‘Spanish Job’. The mission packs can be downloaded from the Flight Sim World Steam Store page. It’s good to add that not only these mission packs are now available for free, there are also a lot of price drops from other developers active until the product will be closed on aforementioned date. Flight Sim World and purchased addons will remain in your Steam Library, but you will not be able to purchase the sim or new addons any longer after then.

  3. I have been using FSX and FSX:SE for many happy years. The time has come for me to consider moving sim. I am still deciding between P3D and XP (now FSW has been consigned to the bin). Before I take the plunge and start spending any hard cash, I have recently started using the free trial of X-Plane 11 (v11.10). But I am facing a lot of problems including: weaving on take off roll and after landing - due to poor traction? Incorrect sensitivity of rudder? This is affecting the default 737 and was even worse in the tail dragger tutorial which was almost impossible to get airborne. I am using a Saitek X45 but have no rudder pedals. I use the rudder switches on the throttle which are normally fine in FSX:SE. How do I find all the keyboard assignments; I can only find a small list of key commands via the menu. I turned off the C172 engine by hitting F7 thinking I’d get a notch of flaps during my landing tutorial! how do I change the views? This might be helped by keyboard commands in 2 above but I don’t want to randomly hit keys now in case I do anything else to the aircraft midair! Many thanks for the help in advance TSL crew! I know these are really basic questions but it would really help me start to ‘fly the plane’ instead of ‘operate the sim interface’!! SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :

  6. Skyline Sim Chicago O’Hare, Cincinnati International, and Long Beach Preview Mega Post The last time we shared any previews of any of Skyline Sim’s upcoming projects was earlier this month, and January before that. In that time, I’ll admit we did miss large number of previews from Skyline of Cincinnati International, Chicago O’Hare, as well as Long Beach, and I do apologize for that. Earlier today, Skyline showed off more previews of their upcoming Cincinnati International scenery, and I thought it’d be a perfect time to compile all of the previews Skyline has shared over the past few months that went uncovered by us! Do note that this is a mix of screenshots as recent as today but dating back to February, and are all of course work-in-progress with some things having been reworked and/or changed since they were shared. Enjoy! SOURCE INFO https://www.facebook.com/skyline.simulations/ https://fselite.net/previews/skyline-sim-chicago-o-hare-cincinnati-international-long-beach-preview-mega-post/
  7. RIP Flight Sim World: Closure Announcement APRIL 23 - DTG CRYSS It is with great sadness that we announce the future closure of Flight Sim World. As you know, we always had a strong ambition to bring a new experience into the established world of flight simulation, one that deliberately overhauled both the flying experience and the graphical fidelity, offering new ways to fly. Unfortunately, after many detailed discussions, we regrettably don’t see a clear direction that will allow us to keep to the development time we’d want, alongside the player numbers we need. So, slightly before a year since we first launched into Early Access, we have made the intensely difficult decision to fully scale back all future development on Flight Sim World and remove it from sale on 24th May. We’re sure you have lots of questions, we hope we’ve answered a few here. FAQ What happens to Flight Sim World if I already own it? It will remain in your Steam library, available to play in its current format. Will the sim be taken off sale? Yes, and we’re working to the date of 24th May 2018. We want to give anyone who does not yet own a copy of the sim enough time to get a copy and keep it safe in their library for future play. What will happen to any Add-Ons? Add-Ons will also come off sale, but those you already own will still also be in your Steam library. We hope you can give the team the respect they deserve for their tireless hard work to date. Please know that all of us here at Dovetail hold flight simulation, the creators of add-on content, and especially you, the community for this sim, in incredibly high regard for both your support and time with Flight Sim World. - The Flight Sim World Team SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : https://steamcommunity.com/games/389280/announcements/detail/3400657079148405506 NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
  8. Skyline Sim Chicago O’Hare for X-Plane Previews It’s been a busy couple of days for previews of upcoming Chicago O’Hare sceneries, with both Drzewiecki Design and FSDreamTeam having shown off previews yesterday. Now it’s Skyline Sim’s turn, and this time for X-Plane! For those wondering if it will be compatible with Drzeweicki Design’s upcoming Chicago City X scenery, we have some good news for you; it will be! In addition to this, the control tower will feature a spinning radar on top of it and various landmarks such as the AllState arena near the approaches will indeed be modelled for VFR approach aids. Sadly, that was all for now but it will be very nice to have a detailed rendition of O’Hare in X-Plane relatively soon!

  11. Dovetail Games Releases The Spanish Job Mission Pack For Flight Sim World Dovetail Games has released The Spanish Job Mission Pack add-on for Flight Sim World (FSW).

Along the way, pilots will be required to complete a series of tasks that are all related to the main mission while obeying all ATC instructions and navigating busy airspace around Dublin airport. The mission pack requires the base game Flight Sim World and can be purchased for $10.14 CDN on the Steam store.

  12. LET’S SIM IS CLOSING DOWN – AND THAT SUCKS Let’s Sim was one of those new projects that you never know what’s putting on the table until they do. I had the pleasure of watching Dave White bring it up from nothing. And now I have the terrible sight of him closing it down. His reasons are perfectly valid. When you get to a point where you are losing money, you sometimes need to stop the bleed. On some projects, you can go on. On other projects – especially ones where more than one person is involved – that’s harder. Usually impossible. Dave came up with a way to protect the authors’ work and brought some very interesting features such as their 360 preview. That was something that really impressed me but, at the same time, it was nothing that I wasn’t expecting from Dave. He’s just like that: always wanting to push things forth and making it all better. I am deeply sorry to see Let’s Sim disappear. It was a shock to me and I am sure it wasn’t an easy decision for Dave. Not easy at all. It’s a huge loss to the community and I just hope we don’t lose more. We are a community, moved by a passion that we all share and cherish. I hope we keep on, united. To Dave: hang in there, buddy. You know how to reach me if needed. You’ve shown us that there are other ways, cooler ways, to do things and that we should not settle with how things have always been done. Thank you. For everything. Read their announcement here. Note: this post was made together with FlightDeckX and FSElite in solidarity with Dave and the Let’s Sim Team. A community should stick together. Always. That’s what we defend. by Sérgio Costa on March 23, 2018 SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK : https://www.helisimmer.com/news/lets-sim-is-closing-down-and-that-sucks/
  13. Flight Sim Development Group Previews Upcoming Pilots of the Caribbean Project Flight Sim Development Group (FSDG) has previewed some shots of their upcoming Pilots of the Caribbean project on their Facebook page. First up in the series appears to be the island of St. Vincent. While details are scarce, the shots show some amazing photos of both Argyle International Airport (TVSA) and the surrounding island. A post on the developers forum promises something “very soon”, and comments on the Facebook post are equally scant in details.

  21. Just over a month ago, Captain Sim released their 757 Captain III for P3Dv4. It was met with some positive views from the community, but lots of feedback to help make the aircraft even better. A few weeks after, hotfix 1 was released addressing some of the concerns, and the team committed to listening to the community for more feedback. A few minutes ago, the team released hotfix 2 which has added a whole bunch of new features and fixes to the 757 Captain III. One of the most featured requests was the addition of having fuel and payload added to the FMC instead of using the complex method of external managers and in-sim fueling pages. Furthermore, you can also use the FMC to determine the ZFW, jetway control and control the pushback. Other improvements include 40 additional cockpit control sounds, window wiper sound effects and the CDU is now a pop-out. Some of the bigger bugs has also been addressed including fuel flow, VNAV fixes, cost index calculations and an improvement on the CI/Mach number. To install, you can download the update file from here. Once done, make sure P3DV4 isn’t running and install the update. The patch will overwrite all modifications of the original product. It’s not clear if you need to have hotfix 1 installed first. Just in case you do, you can get that from here. Captain Sim has said to continue watching their forum for further updates and improvements. Full Change log: – ZFW and CG management via FMC is added. – Fuel management via FMC is added. – Payload management via FMC is added. – Pushback control via FMC is added. – Jetway control via FMC is added. – A separate tiller axis is added. – 40+ cockpit controls sounds are added. – Window wipers sound is added. – CDU pop-ups are added. – The A/P disconnect sound is added. – PAX cabin on/off selection is added. – Fuel Flow is corrected. – VNAV speed/alt restrictions are fixed. – VNAV is improved. – Cost Index calculation is improved. – CI/Mach Number calculation is improved. – Cockpit sounds are improved. – The F/D bars readability is improved. – Seat belt chime volume is increased. – The Captain’s seat view is re-mapped to F9 hotkey. – The Manual is updated.

  22. by JOHN MOORE on 31ST JANUARY 2018 ADD COMMENT FSWNEWS FACEBOOK TWITTER REDDIT In a post on their website, Dovetail has outlined what dynamic weather will look like in FSW. First off, let’s get the release date out of the way. The update bringing dynamic weather to the skies of Flight Sim World will be released on February 1st, 2018. In FSW currently, you have a choice of static weather themes to choose from, with your flight being conducted in that theme for the entirety of your session. Everything remains the same, winds, cloud types cloud heights, visibility, etc. With dynamic weather, however, this is not the case. When dynamic weather is enabled, the engine reads data from thousands of weather stations all around the world and determines the conditions from the METAR strings that Dovetail have created. In an effort to ensure the conditions are not always the same, Dovetail have created multiple environments through the inclusion of seasonal strings. Over time, this will be expanded to provide “an incredibly rich and varied flight environment”. With dynamic weather enabled, the sim will read in weather strings from nearby weather stations, thus determining the conditions rendered. This ensures the conditions at your arrival airport will not be the same as the conditions from your departure airport, as it is in real life. When you’re enroute, the engine will pick up other nearby weather stations and will try to transition the visible weather to the conditions it has been fed. Dovetail has said that there is in fact a cycle which waits before reading new conditions, as to not be constantly transitioning when you fly over lots of weather stations as well as a transition time whenever a new change is initiated. By doing this, Dovetail has ensured that conditions will not jump from one to another. Dovetail has also stated that since this is v1 of dynamic weather, the conditions will develop around you rather than being visible off in the distance before you fly through them. You can see the weather developing, but it will essentially be the same in every direction you look with no weather fronts being present. But that isn’t the goal of this update. The goal of v1 is to prepare the FSW engine, and their Advanced Weather engine, for live weather. They close the article by stating the aim is to eventually be able to visualize multiple weather types in the same session so it will be possible to have weather fronts to avoid. In a quest to achieve these conditions, Dovetail are aiming to create “what is arguably the most advanced visualization of weather in a flight simulation”. And after hearing all of this, we can’t exactly say they aren’t. Any and all questions regarding dynamic weather can be answered by Dovetail themselves over on their forums. For more information on Dovetail’s next updates to FSW and the upcoming dynamic weather update, be sure to stay tuned to FSElite! https://fselite.net/news/dovetail-detail-flight-sim-worlds-upcoming-dynamic-weather-update/ LINK TO SOURCE: https://forums.dovetailgames.com/forums/flightsimworld/?_ga=2.227892573.1796043737.1517431167-1934032176.1517431167
