If this game is still being developed, and the developers read these pages, I think it would be a good idea to notify the player when they get access to a new category of planes. I have access to cat 3 but have no clue when this happened. It's only just occurred to me that you don't have to do the task in the plane they give you at the start.
I think the game's unbelievably engaging early on, but does get less and less so as you progress. I think a military version could give much more scope in terms of missions being more varied, and progressively more difficult as you move up the levels. You could have spy planes for recon, bombers for taking out bridges and power plants etc, fighters for intercepting enemy bombers, and helicopters for dropping troops in strategic positions behind enemy lines. Appreciate these things are easy to envisage and much harder to implement, but the biggest flaw with eurofly is its lack of variety, and the fact it gets easier rather than harder.
By the way, I noticed early on in the other eurofly thread, the devs were asking for native English rewrites of their text. I did the quick start and sent it to the email the guy posted. It was a few days ago, but have had no reply. Maybe he doesn't work on the project anymore, or the rewirite was pants. Anyway, it's there if you want it. I'm doing the task briefings too, but that's for my own satisfaction. If the devs want those when I'm done, and they read this, let me know.

I totally agree with the last post,

its strange how the tasks get easier as the game goes along, especially when auto pilot is introduced.

Being able to change the aircraft upon each new task is also counter productive as the whole point of a task is completing it to the letter.

I loved achieving my rank throughout the tasks though,  that was definatly the main reason that kept me playing,  but now there seems to be no point in carrying on once you get to the rank of inspector.

I really hope the game still gets worked on with more tasks and goals to aim for, because its a wonderful game even if its only while you reach the rank of inspector.

Hi guys,



The major goal of Eurofly is extending geographical knowledge than thrill and suspense in actions like bombers fighting avoiding interceptors etc. so the main purpose is flying from A point  to B point. All the tasks are rather helping tool for people to get a hang of controls on how to drive various types of planes. It results into peculiar aspect for some people that the more tasks you're done with the easier they seem to be. The distances are wider and longer but it's logical that e.g. Cessna doesn't have autopilot unlike huger planes e.g. Boeings or Airbuses having the autopilots. So the impression of easier driving is more obvious.



So I understand your needs to have thrilling exciting and dramatic actions air strikes etc. but the main purpose was geography. These things have been made just to spice things up for Eurofly not to be too tedious and uneventful flying intercontinental routes. That's I know the attitude of main developer Stefan I'm in touch with.



We'd better welcome new language localisations as there's Arabic language there by Riad and other Arab guys involved and under way in a few days to be released so if you want us giving you helping hand with new localisation feel free to respond here. You can be written in air history though! big_smile

I want to add the concorde jet to eurofly. and I need a certain sound effect... I need the sound effect from the old jet engines in the older redspot game by sam tupy. in old redspot game about a year ago you could fly in jets. the jets had a certain sound and it would be a great sound to use for the concorde in eurofly if i could get ahold of the sound effect.

Meanwhile you can always not use the autopilot. There is not really much at the moment, except you set a flight target yourself instead of following the random quest.

Hi,



joshknnd1982: Do concordes still fly? They were terminated after the huge crash in Paris, weren't they? But if the type you refer to is still used send us the engine and all the properties required in ctrl+enter options and I don't see any problem why not to implement it. By the way you can test it on your own. Just look into Aircrafts folder in Eurofly how it's structured. The engines in .wav format and the .air files with properties. So if you make your own you can copy it there testing it yourself.

It doesn't actually fly anymore after the paris crash and declining use and it was also to costly. . Again, if you look back at this topic or the other topic, I have uploaded an aircrafts folder with many aircrafts, including the cconcorde aircraft with a sound and specs.

hi.
here is the dropbox link to my aircrafts folder, plus select files I have changed from the audio folder. Just unzip and replace the aircraft folder, then look at the other files individually and replace them where they go in the audio folder.

Hi everyone.
I have started a youtube channel where I do videos and live streams of eurofly and Microsoft flight simulator too. Here is the link to my latest video which was a live stream yesterday

Hi guys,



Just bringing up great news Stefan's working on Eurofly development considering some suggestions so the summer will be really hot on testing with hopefully no more flight accidents. big_smile So let's get patient and we'll see what new versions look like.



And also if you feel like making translation on more languages/your mother tongue feel free to hit us up as there's a translation guide there which makes it way much more transparent easier and lucid.
