    I’m expecting they will. When 2020 came out they put up a post telling us that OR and WA are being worked on for the next game. I’m not sure about Arizona though, New York and Florida aren’t modelled but Arizona is, so I’m kinda hoping they give us AZ as well, since some of 2020’s scenery (monument valley and Grand Canyon) stretch into Arizona and these got modelled with 2020, so I’m hoping we get the rest of the state pretty soon

    Hope so too🤞

    Thank you IPACS. This is great news for everyone. I may suggest releasing the beta onto mobile devices as well so that we can be certain nothing drastic goes wrong when the update comes to mobile.

    Perhaps we should get liveries that are seen on the west coast of the U.S... somewhere we can actually fly in the sim. For example. Alaskan airlines a320, Frontier, Allegiant etc. That'll be easier for the developers to add because these airlines use the CFM56 engines on their 320s hence adding the livery won't be that troublesome

    @MasterOneLew, Rdx015: The things you mention has nothing to do with the problem Overloaded reported. The fact that A320 and some other airplanes have lower resolution textures in the cockpit is simply our texture budget limitation. For each airplane we try to stay below a certain amount of total texture storage. We will try to increase this in one of the next updates, but there is always the danger that on slower devices we will reduce performance considerably. Keep in mind we have to ensure Aerofly FS runs fine on a wide variety of devices.

    Thank you for replying to our comments, we just wish that we get a flight deck where we can atleast read what's written on the panels, doesn't necessarily have to be an HD cockpit like it used to be but atleast something we can work with especially given the new cold and dark feature in the upcoming update. Aerofly has done something no other sim has been able to achieve by creating highly detailed study level aircrafts, now that's something for default aircrafts!! As a fact I know the team at aerofly would take this minor issue into consideration for the next update 😊

    I believe this is a previous update that has decreased the quality of some things, like aircraft cockpits. I think everyone has the same issue and it’s very difficult to read the switches in various aircraft, whereas the 747 is fairly clear, but the 777 has an incredibly clear cockpit.

    Exactly!! Devices that are rendering scenery and the external model of the a/c at 60fps are unable to load the cockpit....? I mean previously it was able to load the flightdeck without any issue but then some update came along and it severely decreased the cockpit graphics to a point u can't read anything in the flightdeck except for what's on the display screens.

    We need to investigate what you said. Looking at the code, simulation should be fine unless FPS drops below 30. But we might have done a slight mistake here, even though we usually program without bugs.


    On mobile devices ( iOS and Android ) frame rate is usually always capped at what the device supports which is usually 60 fps. So this limit is always active, contrary to our PC version that can render unlimited frames ( which is really meaningless and for performance measurement only ). When using Aerofly FS for a long time or when heat cannot properly dissipate, mobile devices drain their battery very fast. To reduce this effect, the limit frame rate option was introduced which clamps framerate to 30 fps.


    But again, we need to check your comment and see why simulation is no longer running at 100%.

    I face similar issues... A high end OnePlus 5T running the simulator on maxed out graphics showing 60fps is unable to render the cockpit of some aircrafts eg. A320, C90, L45. I wrote about this a while back where in its impossible to read any of the panels of these aircrafts making flying really difficult. Hope you can look into it because earlier on maxed out graphics the cockpit used to render really well like a proper HD quality cockpit but after an update it's impossible to read the panels.

    Thanks ... not all aircraft but more than before :)

    I'm not sure if there is going to be a beta for mobile. After this alpha update runs well we're probably going to make a Steam beta. And once that works I think the mobile version will get the release build as well. This is not all set in stone yet, it may happen differently.

    Well that's just great, absolute blown away!!! You guys at ipacs work really hard to bring such content to us and we on the mobile platform are more than happy to wait around for the final complete product instead of a bug infested beta update. However, if I may ask, how long will it be before we see some action on mobile?

    OMG!!! This is by far the greatest news I've heard this whole year😂. Congratulations to everyone especially the entire team at ipacs for making such a dream come true. Operating all these aircrafts from cold and dark and added a more advanced FMS/FMC/MCDU has elevated the standard of the simulator leaps and bounds. Good job guys!!👍 On a seperate note when can we expect the beta for the mobile version?

    We didn't want too many open developments going on at the same time, so these options are not yet included with the next update. There are still too many lose ends on that front and it's not ready for the release.

    That's alright. We understand that the team at Aerofly isn't the biggest, however they are the most talented bunch out there. You guys perfect whatever you do and we as a community appreciate that to the fullest 😊

    A while back the Devs were even talking about adding aircraft options. For eg: on the A320 you could select sharklets and choose a different engine option, either IAE V2500 or any of the neo engines... hopefully we get to see that in this update or perhaps in the near future

    Only some aircraft, but I hope to be able to include the A320 in that. I'm sure more will follow over time.

    YES PLEASE!! The A320 is my all time favourite aircraft, not just mine but for many others as well. We'd die to see starting the A320 from cold and dark even if that means delaying the release of the update!!

    We plan on releasing it for the Steam beta first. When that works without issues we plan on releasing it for the mobile version as well, yes.

    The announcement said starting the aircrafts in cold and dark will be an option so is it safe to say we can expect cold and dark for turbofan engine aircrafts as well?
