The Flare Path: Accosts Accomplished Add-On Artisans

2014 wasn't exactly a bumper year for standalone flight sim releases. Apart from the flak-nibbled IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad, and eccentric WWI curios like ILYA Muromets and Canvas Knights simulated clouds had simulated skies almost all to themselves. Fortunately the add-on sector was as vigorous and ambitious as ever. Today in The Flare Path I catch up with five top flight sim supplementers, all…

The Flare Path: Contends With Congestion

It's the final lap of the 73BC Nicopolis GP and the crowd are going walnuts. After narrowly avoiding a crashed chariot in lane 4 and the threshing wheel blades of the mad Scythian in lane 6, I whip my knackered nags through an unexpected gap in the frontrunners, and find myself leading by a good pertica. There's now only one 180-degree turn and a furlong…

The Flare Path: Pole Stars

The Flare Path knows what it takes to plod across plateaus of pristine whiteness for day after day. Perhaps that's why he has a picture of Robert Falcon Scott marmaladed to his fridge door, and a stuffed Avro Shackleton dangling from his bedroom ceiling. It could also explain why he's decided to visit both the Arctic and the Antarctic in the deep-frozen hunk of seal blubber…

Omnibus Driving Simulator Released

Released, and it's... impressive. Not even kidding. I came close to letting out a tiny gasp while watching the video below. Make no mistake, Aerosoft's Omnibus Driving Simulator might have the most impressive fidelity of any 80s West Berlin bus driver simulator ever made. I could tell you that Omnibus driving simulator depicts both the SD200 and SD202 MAN double-decker buses. I could tell you…

New: Bus Simulator!

Oh, I know! A new bus simulator game has been announced by Aerosoft. It will be published in "early 2011" for the bargain price of €29.99 You need to look at the screenshots here. Also, it uses TrackIR head tracking, if you have that fancy stuff: "TrackIR by NaturalPoint now offers the complete freedom of movement in the OMSI cockpit too and intuitively helps checking…

Goose Greenlight: Jet Thunder Gets Publisher

Six of the war-torn wonders I tipped at the start of the year are now available, and a recent announcement on the Aerosoft forum suggests that total will soon be seven. Or 6.333333333 if you want to be pedantic. The German publisher that back in July 09 declared an interest in developing a successor to Microsoft Flight Simulator, has just signed-up Falklands/Malvinas War flight sim…

Blue Sky Thinking: Aerosoft Dare To Dream

Mathijs Kok has balls the size of Catalina blisters. The head of internal development at Aerosoft is talking about taking-on undoubtedly simulation's scariest task: building from scratch a Microsoft Flight Simulator successor. If you've got a feature suggestion that doesn't involve blue ice, ornithopters, or lawn chairs and helium balloons (already included in my petition) Aerosoft want to hear about it.
