Folks,

We want to start off by congratulating the winners of the SimAir contest:

1st Prize - Brett Kollar winner of the $500 prize!
2nd Prize - Alain Rodrique winner of any Carenado aircraft of choice
3rd Prize - Brandon Burkley winner of a free copy of SimAir when released

The answer to the question, "What is SimAir?", has been revealed.... "Prepare to engage in the extreme multiplayer air carrier and virtual pilot experience."

We understand there will be MANY questions asked about the program. We will reveal a more in-depth feature list as testing continues. There is more then meets the eye. Please try and keep all correspondence to SimAir in this thread rather then creating a new one.

Also, since I personally try and answer on the average of 50-60 PM's and emails per day, please try refrain from sending them to our staff and myself in regards to SimAir as it's taking so much time away from production.

We appreciate your patience while we work on finalizing all facets of SimAir, and we'll keep things updated in this thread.

Thank you!

So is this going to be like a new client for Vatsim or does it use a completely different host?

Idd congrats to the winners :)
I thought I was close, but I was nowhere near it!

Although the words still don't make any sense to me. Simair is still a mystery.

I don't think its going to be like Vatsim, I still think its what I have been talking about all along, its an Airline management game, there are several of these types of games on the market right now, it's multiplayer because you compete and interact together in an online community. The one thing that I think simair will do is provide an option to tie this into your daily flight simming. If this is what simair will be I will be truly happy.

It will be both a standalone game and an addon for FSX.

Right now we are only going to release the tag lines with a few details, but a full feature list and screenshots will be highlighted as we get closer towards the release date.

I can say it will be a full fledge massive-multiplayer game - highly competitive- with the ability to for FS user to integrate with Flight Sim.

This is exactly what I thought the add-on would be; just could not fit it into the phrase  ;)

Are you at liberty to say if we are looking at a matter of weeks before release or a matter of months?

From one side highly competitive multiplayer experience and from the other side you can use it either standalone (meaning released to the community who might never even heard of flightsimming) or together with FSX. Flying and simming takes time so the questione immediately arose for me if the flightsimmers and the standalone users compete in the same sandbox or separately.

Thx,

Alex

I am sorry to keep a close lip about things, but this question will be answered when we release the feature details.
