GeoFS Premiun Failed

After about 8 months of development, my attempt at monetizing GeoFS failed as not enough users converted to premium content. The good news is that I released all premium content and features for free (and reimbursed all paying users). The bad news is: my plan to grow GeoFS and make it my main professional activity is no longer doable. That means I will only work on GeoFS in my spare time (again).

I wish to thank all the people who committed and contributed to GeoFS by subscribing to GeoFS Premium.

GEFS Becomes GeoFS

It has been a bit more than 3 months now that the Google Earth plugin ceased working. GEFS had to clearly break off from this legacy and will now become GeoFS. I believe the name reflect the global geographic scale of the flyable area while not being to far from what it used to be.

This new version is also a big step as I decided to invest more time into making GeoFS better. To help with financing my work, I introduced Premium content that can be purchased through virtual Premium Fuel or yearly subscription. The free content and features are still there and will remain but I will also regularly publish extra premium content in the form of high quality aircraft and extra functionality.

GeoFS Premium, so far, offers to fly two new aircraft: the Alpha Jet "Patrouille de France", a beautiful model originally created for Microsoft Flight Simulator by Laurent Correia and a Cessna 172 modeled by David Moratilla.

I also added a simple ADS-B feed to track commercial trafic in-game: you can fly with real trafic and follow aircraft as they cruise around the globe. I am planning to improve this feature with more aircraft models and hopefully more accurate data.

The clouds are back in GeoFS: Based on real time weather data, the cloud coverage is generated as you fly, all over the world.

Finally, you can now log-in using your Facebook account as well as your Gmail account.

Please visit (and like) GeoFS facebook page for the latest news and screenshot.

Have a nice flight.

Player list in 1.5c release

A new feature has been introduced in the latest release: the list of logged-in pilots.

The list shows all authenticated pilots (and the total number of Foos for good measure) and provides a link to join them in flight!

When clicking the link, your aircraft is positioned just behind the pilot you are joining. This can be very handy for formation flying or just joining your friends.

The list is opened by clicking the little silhouettes icon net to the "talk" button (only available to logged-in users)
