A el siguiente requerimiento en Steam de parte de Dovetain, sobre lo que le gustaria ver a la comunidad en el proximo simulador de la compañia:

What would you like to see in a new Flight Simulator? [Official]
Back when we, Dovetail Games, announced that we would be bringing FSX to Steam we also confirmed that we would be working on a brand new flight simulator. We are currently busy with the early stages of development for this new simulator under the codename Dovetail Games Flight Simulator (DFS).*

If you have been joining us on Twitch[www.twitch.tv] for the last few weeks you will also know that we promised to create a space where you can share with us your ideas for what you would like to see in this new sim. That space is right here in this thread, so if you have an idea we would love to hear it.

Whether your idea is, big or small, we invite you to share them with us, however we cannot guarantee that anything discussed in this thread will make it into the final simulator.

*Please note that this is just a development codename and is subject to change before final release.

So then our fellow avgeeks, what would you really like to see in a brand new sim?

PcPilot da información sobre los nuevos productos de simulación de vuelo de Dovetail.


El primero que llegará en Abril será Dovetail Games Flight School. Este es la versión "gratis", que como su nombre indica, se permitirá realizar una escuela de vuelo mientras se vuela en un entrenador iconico por el mundo.

El sigiente es Dovetail Games Flight Simulator que llegará a finales de año. Poco mas se puede sacar de PCPilot, aunque habla que habrá un extenso articulo en su revista en la edición de marzo.

Solo tenemos una imagen, y me huele que en si, puede ser una mejora del antiguo Flight! (a ver que dicen en AvSim).

Mas información en Steam, evolución de FSX con motor Dx11 y de 64bits.

After months of speculation we are very excited to finally be able to lift the lid on our plans for the future of flight simulation with the announcement of Dovetail Games Flight School. We understand that some of you may have not been expecting us to head in this direction, and so you probably have lots of questions about what is happening. We have therefore created this dedicated space for you to ask questions and for us to answer them.

The big questions are: What is happening with the announced Dovetail Games Flight Simulator (DFS)? Are Flight School and DFS the same? Will Flight School turn into DFS?

Firstly, Flight School is not DFS. Flight School is a standalone experience designed to teach players the basics of flight simulation in a fun, accessible way. Flight Simulator is still very much in active development, and upon release will be a much bigger and feature-rich simulator.

Why have we made Flight School? What is our intent for this new simulator?

We have spent the last two years listening to both existing and would-be simmers alike. We have been intent on discovering what keeps you all simming, and what stops those who would like to get into flight simulation from doing so. We learned that flight simulation appeals to an incredible amount of people, a lot of which find it too hard to get started with. It is our aim to reclaim those would-be simmers, but in order to do so, we need to present flight simulation in a way that doesn't initially overwhelm them. That is where Flight School comes in.

So you didn’t develop Flight School with existing simmers in mind, you may ask?

Flight School has been developed to give anyone who wants to give flight simming a try the chance to do so. While established simmers will likely already know what we are aiming to teach, it is a chance to get an early preview of some of the new technologies we have implemented which will be carried over to DFS. Of course if you fancy brushing up on your skills or putting them to the test, then Flight School has piloting tests and missions which will also do just that.

But enough about Flight School – here is what you can expect from DFS.

Dovetail Games Flight School and Dovetail Games Flight Simulator do share the same underlying technology. In 2014, we acquired the rights to develop and publish new flight simulators utilizing Microsoft’s genre-defining flight simulation technology. This means that both Flight School and Flight Simulator are based on an evolution of Flight Simulator X technology.

Our goal is to put flight simulation at the forefront of people’s minds once more and present the genre in a way that doesn't initially overwhelm new simmers. With Flight School, we have created a realistic representation of how pilots learn to fly. Flight Simulator builds upon the foundations of Flight School, however it will include more content, additional features, and will extend the technology even further… and that’s just the beginning!

DTG Flight Simulator is still very much in development and is planned to be more expansive and evolved than Flight School. We are committed to developing a cutting edge flight simulator which takes full advantage of modern PCs and can be continuously built upon. For starters, Dovetail Games Flight Simulator will be a 64-bit simulator using DirectX 11 and take full advantage of modern GPU and CPU performance.

We are in this for the long term and intend to support and expand upon DFS for years to come. We aren’t just going to make a new simulator – we intend to build a new simulation platform which grows with you, our players, over time.

And finally, yes, Dovetail Games Flight Simulator will include a Free Flight mode which will allow you to explore and fly wherever you want in the world from the very start.
Right now the team is heads down working hard on developing the sim to its fullest potential, so we may go a little quiet for a while until we have more news to share. If you have any questions, please let us know in the comments below and we will do our best to answer as many of them as we can.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far, we consider ourselves to be very lucky to be part of such a passionate community of simmers.

- The Dovetail Games Flight Simulation Team

Since acquiring the rights to develop and publish new titles utilizing Microsoft’s genre-defining flight simulation technology back in 2014, Dovetail Games has been clear about its intent to make headlines in the flight simulation category. Today, it is pleased to announce that it will launch two brand new flight simulators in 2016.

Dovetail Games Flight School is first to arrive, and is set to release in April 2016, with Dovetail Games Flight Simulator scheduled for launch in the latter part of the year.

Flight School is a carefully crafted and rewarding experience designed to teach would-be pilots the basics of flying a light aircraft as well as the essential premises of flight simulation. It will offer newcomers to flight simming an engaging and accessible introduction to aviation, whilst also being highly realistic and authentic. Players will learn to fly in iconic training aircraft, undertaking a series of tutorials and training missions, which will provide the perfect introduction to the genre. There will also be a Free Flight mode, for those players who want to head off and explore the entire world.

“Flying an aircraft is a rewarding, awe-inspiring experience unlike any other and we want to give more people the opportunity to enjoy that by breaking down the barriers that make flight simulation feel inaccessible,” said Stephen Hood, Creative Director at Dovetail Games. “By empowering players to handle the controls of the aircraft, we will help them to immerse themselves in the very best and most thrilling aspects of flying in an up-to-date and technically cutting edge environment.”

Paul Jackson, CEO at Dovetail Games added, “People have always dreamt of being able to fly and through Flight School we aim to satisfy that dream and give people the opportunity not only to learn to fly, but to really soar as they explore the world. Flight simulation has always been important in the world of gaming but it hasn’t kept up - the core experience hasn’t progressed since the launch of Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X back in 2006 and that means we’ve missed at least one or maybe even two generations of players who would have adored flight simming, but for whom it wasn’t appropriate. Our aim is to get back to that place, to restore the former glory of flight simulation as an enjoyable and engaging pastime. Consumers today expect a much slicker experience across all genres. They want simulations that are realistic but also accessible. They want to be led to a place where the focus can be on reaching great levels of accomplishment, rather than struggling to get to grips with the operational aspects. And that’s precisely what Flight School will deliver.”

Dovetail Games Flight School and Dovetail Games Flight Simulator will both be available on PC.

Aunque sea por rentabilizar la pasta que me he dejado en P3D me parece que esto va a tener que esperar... :|

Correcto, nadie ha hecho nada desde entonces.
Vamos, que hay otros mundos, pero no son este.
Y las ventanas.
Los micrófonos.

Tenemos un video de un youtuber hablando sobre los proyectos de Dovetain (segun dicen en AvSim, este tiene un NDA con Dvt).

El video en cuestión:

Segun se saca de dicho video:
- Tecnologia de 64 bits.
- Nucleo del sistema en Dx 11
- Soporta multiples CPUs.
- Soporta Mutiples GPUs.
- Cambios en el motor de iluminación.
- Nuevo multiplayer.
- Soporte de 3rd Parties.

 Una de las cuestiones que aparece en el video es que ninguno de los productos que se hagan para este simulador serán retrocompatibles con versiones anteriores, y por ende, ninguno de los anteriores funcionarán en dichos productos. Esto es tambien devido a cambios en SDK.

Sobre Flight School.
- Se centrará en un nivel de comienzo para los que no conozcan lo que es volar, con clases, lecciones y un instructor en cabina que nos enseñará a volar, pone el ejemplo que con Flight School, se podrá aprender como hacer una aproximación en condiciones visuales sin visivilidad o de noche de la misma manera que un piloto real las conoce.

Habla que los simuleros hardcores estaremos de enorabuena, tanto en aviación general como comercial, ya que es un siguiente paso en la simulación de vuelo, pero que no puede dar mas datos por el momento.

Dovetail cierra Fligh Sim World, en si, esto se me acuerda lo que pasó con Flight!, un quiero y no puedo.

Desde AVSim, comentan que han despedido a toda la plantilla y parece que Dovetail a quedado algo tocada financieramente. Mal asunto
