GEFS 0.7.1

I just released a minor update, mostly to fix some bugs but also to push some new features:

- Reverse: the A380 and MD11 are now equipped  with thrust reversal. Keep pressing '-' or 'PageDown' to engage reverse. Hit '0' to reset thrust to neutral.

- Stall alarm: a screen overlay will warn you when you enter stall on every aircraft

- Dynamic air density: lift, drag and engine performance are degraded with increasing altitude. Maximum airspeed will increase as air density decreases. Service ceiling, cruise speed at altitude and rate of climb should respect aircraft specifications but has to be tested more extensively.

- All four runways are used as default starting point so to spread traffic a bit. (runways are randomly picked for the first visit on GEFS)

- Aircraft model packages are optimized to load faster.

- Su35 flight model has been revised to be a bit more gentle and forgiving.

- A380 3D model has been improved.

Have a nice flight!

Using Firefox 3.6.23 the talk feature loads quite slowly and I cannot see the flaps on the A380. It would be much better if fixed.

Aircraft are great but please don't place them on the runways. Sure hate to colide with on upon landing.

Hehe I flew to area 51 yesterday

Xavier: I think for the next aircraft you should have one for planes and one for helicopters. Im one of the few that can fly the chopper properly on gefs so that would be great

Anonymous said...

Xavier: I was just looking at the forum and in one of your posts it said that you are working on a concorde. how long will it take to add it in also i cant keep all the wheels on the SU-35 and AlphaJet on the ground after touchdown.
Thanks for all your work on this sim, GREAT JOB!!!

Hi, this is a neat online app. One request, could we have an auto pilot feature for level flight. When I get up there, at times nice to give my arms a break whilst enjoying the scenery.

Also, I have an iMac with a slimline wireless keyboard which does not have numpad keys or page up page down. Could you please make the reverse thrust use R key. Thanks, Steve

Hi, I have been trying out the simulator, great application and use of Google Earth. The only problem I have is not knowing the positions of the stick for roll pitch and yaw. The Google Earth inbuilt flight sim has this feedback, would make it a lot easier to fly than waiting to see what the reaction of the aircraft is to keyboard or mouse movements. Thanks.

AC-130 C5 Galaxy or AN-225 for next plane

What about new planes?

razeqwaie said...

why not add a a340-500 and a330-300 and 777-300er all,a330 and 777 korean air
and a340 air canada

R is reset

Anonymous said...

And tell him to add the B-787

Anonymous said...

I think having R as reset is annoying because when you press T to talk you always knock R and get reset can you change reset to Esc?

Can this simulaor be configured to an rc flight simulator (mode 2) control box?

Anonymous said...

I am addicted to this simulator, simply perfect relaxing and knowing earth and countries. I think its nice realistic, just enough to think you realy handle an aircraft :) Thanks for this game, i love it!
