Flight Sim Major Update

For a while I have been unhappy with the quality of the environments in Flight Sim compared to other flight simulators available for the mobile platforms.  Many of my competitors used real arial photos to build their terrains.  Even though Flight Sim offered 20 free airplanes while my competitors offered only 1-2 free airplanes (with others costing $2-$3 each), Flight Sim was failing to capture market share.  I believed that the quality of the terrains (and some other bugs) was the major reason for the poor reviews that Flight Sim was getting.  So over the last few months I have been working on a major update to Flight Sim, more of a redesign that improved the quality & realism of the environments available in the game.

Prior to posting any preview videos on my progress I had to first figure out how to use real arial shots of terrains in a game, without crashing the average phone.  That process took a month on its own with many failed experiments and wasted hours.

However at the end I was able to create a fairly realist environment that will work on the majority of mobile devices.  Since July 18th I have been posting these preview videos on Youtube documenting my progress.

Today I am happy to announce that Flight Sim for Android is now live! The iPhone/iPad version has already been submitted to the store and should be live within a few days.

As always I look forward to your comments and suggestions.  Feel free to post them on my Twitter or Facebook Page.

  • Longer Trains
  • Higher Resolution Textures for several Trains

Train Sim – Another Awesome Update

Train Sim New Farm Land Scene

I am happy to report that Train Sim has received another awesome update.  This time I focused on updating one of the existing older scenes.

I started by asking my twitter account, Which Scene I should focus on updating.  The Farm Land scene was a clear winner. (I think I will be doing more of that in the future)

Initially I focused on making a larger more interesting track layout. In the old scene the track was arranged in a circle, and I received allot of complaints about that from users.  As you will see from the top view of the track, the layout is much more interesting then before.

I also wanted to add some new assets to the scene,  These included:

  • Improved Track Textures
  • Improved Horse Model
  • New Cow Models
  • New Large Grain Elevator/Silos
  • New Farm Textures
  • Improved Water Effects

However I wanted the scene to seem familiar as well, so allot of the old farm textures & small towns found in the old levels are still present in this new scene.

On top of the improved Farm Land scene I also added a new GE AC4400CW train with custom freight cars to go with it.  This brings the total number of trains available in Train Sim to 47!

This new awesome new update is already available on Android & Amazon.  And it is pending review in the Windows Store.  I am still working on updating Train Sim on iOS.
