Active Development

  • Implement Weather and Terrain APIs (Wishlist LT #1 – Partial)  |  SU 10 +
    • Terrain & Weather Radar Drawing API is currently being tested and will be released with SU10. It will allow WASM modules to request customized bitmaps showing the terrain and weather around the user’s aircraft.

 

  • Chinese Localization (Wishlist LT #4)  |  WU 10
    • Simplified Chinese will be available with World Update 10.

 

  • DirectX12 on PC (Wishlist LT #6)   |  SU 10 +
    • Stability, memory allocation and overall optimization improvements are ongoing.

 

  • Cloud Layer Improvements (Bugs LT #2, #17)   |  SU 10
    • Fine-tuning of the cloud layer system to be more precise and incremental is ongoing. The cloud layer will be much thinner at sea level and thicker at higher altitudes. The updated system will better depict a realistic cloud coverage at low altitude with an update of the weather panel.

 

  • Bush Trips (Bugs 3 Months #12)  |  SU 10
    • Improvements to the bush trip experience are almost complete and the team is running various tests.

    • Good progress overall on Helicopters as lots of display & debug tools are being added to tune the experience.

 

  • Gliders (Wishlist LT #11, #31)  |  Q4 2022
    • Basic gameplay blocks for Gliders are now implemented (tow plane, winch launch, water ballast management, updrafts/thermals) and require fine tuning
