SimAir

184 posts in this topic

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.

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.

I'll be honest. and you aren't the only company that does this... But why in general companies do this?? Mention a product and then hint about it and be sneaky about it.. Is it because you don't want your competition to get ideas and come out with a product before yours? or something to do with marketing? or what.  Frankly, as a consumer I find this very frustrating to the Nth degree!  Is it because items may not make it in the final product?  I just never understand why the sneaky secrecy on a new product?

Well I understand your frustration and you are entitled to your opinion.  That is not our intent here, we were just trying to have some fun and yes get some exposure.

One of the reasons we are holding off on the details is because we are still completing the marketing material and also working on a few surprises ;).  So when these things are ready and we are near the end of testing - we will start to barrage of information.

Not yet.  Sorry.

We have some things in the works still that once we solidified, we will start unveiling the wrapper in detail.

We have some other surprises we are working on too!!  :o

Ideally, would be great to see approximate dates when details on Simair and the other surprises are likely to be published.

But being the real world, understand its difficult considering the hick-ups that come along.

All I can say is thanks guys for great stunning products and can't wait to hear more on your works..

Keep up the gr8 work!

Cheers,

Mario
