Maintenance Release 0.8.1

I just published a maintenance release (0.8.1). Nothing fancy but a few bugs ironed out:

- Fixed the wind "always on" bug
- Reverted prop wash (was buggy)
- Fixed some aircraft flight characteristics (DC3, Heli) to restore stability.
- Fixed keyboard focus problem on Chrome
- Updated flight model in general
- Trying out a new sound engine
- And a few others things...

As I also updated some javascript libraries, you will be prompted that your preferences are reset (I am sorry, I had no other way)

Have a nice flight.

What are the other things?

Anonymous said...

I personally liked the old engine sound better, the new one is too high pitched and makes the planes sound toyish. Please change back to the old engine sound.

Sounds i tiny bit more like real jets now

Just awesome flying the A380 but keeps banking to the left and won't fly straight for very long. Please fix this minor bug and you'll have one very happy flyer! :-D
P.S. keep up the excellent work.

el juego me parec muy bacano y entretenido que bueno que haygas inventado este fabuloso juego te felicito. hay unos errores que no los habia antes que es el de la linea del tiempo que la hora no corre,por favor corrige lo de la dirrecion por que los alerones se giran en la misma dirrecion que el timon hay que poner que los alerones y el timon giren con distintos botones

just a few suggestions:
-Aircraft
>Space shuttle : Buran and US/NASA's
>SR-71
>F-35B
>F-22(come on, do we only have Russian Fanboys?)

Features:
> Aircraft Carrier arrested landing with fighters(no need to animate hooks)
>Editable ILS screen/MFD.
>Military style HUDs, with runway representation
>Toggle for long distance ground renders.

How about some ww2 planes, p50 or spitfire....

I have another suggestion. It would be nice to put the map on a separate screen if one play's with two screens only.
And I tried to play with the right screen but I cant understand why the picture is at 90 deg. It would be nice to get an extended view tough.

i wonder what Xavier call sign is??? just wondering

DUX Ben said...

As always, awesome work! Thank you so much for this game. With practice I'm getting better each time. Managed to carry out successful landings of the SU-35 on the carrier and managed to land the Sports single engine craft on the carrier using the movie-follow cam. Proud as punch!

Just curious, will the Goodyear Blimp be added to GEFS?

Hey Xavier, just wondering if you could add a DG-800 glider with a plane to tow it in 0.9 this would be really cool and something new besides planes hotair baloons and helicopters. Thanks for all your hard work,

Hi, I am a big fan of GEFS, great work! Would it be possible to add PAPI lights on some of the airports?

Can you add the 757?

Here is the model: http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=69f1d9c3987d429e5e9e2656aff7dd5b

Blue Angel 4 said...

I'm making a glider with google sketchup. Xavier might add it if he wants to.

Anonymous said...

Can you make the plane fly straight not even up and down when we leave the comtrols.and can you make a search destination option and when we click on a runway we see tafe off from and fly by can you make a option set destination and i liked the old engines sounds new ones are pretty bad and i hate that thing unable to save prefences.prefendes are reset to default.plz set this plz.

Xavier, Just curious,when will the 0.9 version come out.

Nice model. :)

I really think it'd be cool to have some regional jets... yes like the 757 above^.

Maybe adding a few types, such as 737, a320, and a Q400 for instance. Really there are endless combinations of planes you could add. (and I do like that Delta 757)

Anyone else think it would add a lot to this simulator? Because there are already fighters, jumbos, helicopters, gliders, and even a balloon!

Thanks guys

Anonymous said...

I agree, that 757 looks good. And about time a regional-mid range jet was added.

Anonymous said...

Hey Xavier, I love the new gliders, in the next version would you be able to add a smaller passenger plane (i think this sim needs one) like a CRJ-700, 737 or A320?

Thanks,
Azza

Hey Xaiver! Thanks a lot for making GEFS. In my opinion, GEFS is the BEST online flight simulator! I love the details. That is the only flight simulator that is actually realistic. It also gives you complete control of the aircraft and gives you 100% freedom. I just wanted to ask you if you can add fuel onto the planes and so as you fly, you have a limited amount of fuel for extra realism. Since not everyone might like that, you can add that mode in the options. Also I noticed that if you shut your engines down, your speed remains at an ok speed instead of loosing a lot of airspeed like in real life... Sorry if I wrote too much but this is the last thing, can you add failures like a dual engine flame-out or fire on board or in the engines? You don't have to do anything I say but I just wanted to throw it out there. It is still my favorite game. :)

Anonymous said...

I agree with you. That would be cool and it would also be cool if you could have landing lights on the plane. :)

Hey this is Qatar Airways 1 (in the game) can i just say that i've got mutiplayer on however it wont let me see people same goes with the talk and when is the next GEFS update? please go to GEFS. There are a lot a bad bugs that slow your computer down please sort this and when i'm using the Airbus A380, when i'm trying to keeep it still it suddenly starts rolling dramatically to left

Anonymous said...

Qatar Airways 1 again here is some ideas for the game:
Maybe you can make new planes such as the Boeing 787, or the B-52 and maybe you can add more military planes such as the spitfire. Maybe you can try to add more options for the plane such as switchign ONLY one engine off not all of them like in real life and Did you ( Xaiver) make the game.
Again you might want to check the game out and probably add a vote off sign because some people like Mistwalker spam the page again and again and again. There are many imposters in the game it's so annoying. Please think of somethign to sort the 2 problems out.

Cya next time on GEFS

Wait what you've already made the new game! cool i will see the changes in a minute. ( im not suspectign that you've put the things that i said)

Any way Bye

hello its me and i would like to know when 1.0 is out and i would like a better cockpit with buttons what actually work and i would like the 787 in the Thomson livery. also im bored of the A380 because its really slow and if u change it to a 747 it would be easyer to do flights. also people are now making airlines with proper websites, it would be good if when u got to http://www.gefs-online.com/gefs.php it will say; what plane would you like, what then you will be able to choose livery. ok people may now see me on gefs as Royal Cargo team SA. ok i hope you will go on gefs because its awesome ok i will now go and i will also be checking the blog to find if you have replied to me.




your sincerly
