Dear aerofly FS Users,
we know, lots of you out there are eager to know what our roadmap for a successor to aerofly FS is and if we continue to develop a new version at all.
Well, the short answer is yes, we are working on the next big version of aerofly FS. But to take aerofly FS to the next level we have to work on quite a few things and we also have to redesign some core elements. But this all takes quite some time.
This post is intended to give a rough overview on whats planned for the next version and what we are currently working on. We might periodically update this post with an updated status or new screenshots, however this information is by no means complete and we reserve the right to remove or add some features.
And please don't ask us for any further details. We would like to put our focus on the development. We will release the next version when we decide, that its worth it. We think too much software these days is released way too early just to hold a planned release date. Our intention is to develop a great flight simulator and this is more important to us than providing updates on a regular basis! We also would like to keep our high quality level, e.g. fast loading times, finely detailed aircraft and easy of use even for the novice user.
So here are the features we put our main focus on right now:
- New aircraft with more cockpit functionality
- Support for navigation features like ILS, VOR, ...
- Support for larger areas, e.g. we will switch to a new coordinate system
- Support for dynamic time of day changes
- Multiplayer support
- Open aerofly FS for developers so they can add their own content
And here are some preliminary screen shots of aircraft we are currently working on.
