World of Aircraft: Glider Simulator uitgebracht

Aerosoft heeft vandaag World of Aircraft: Glider Simulator uitgebracht. Dit is een volledig losstaande sim gericht op zweefvliegen. Het is een echte VFR Simulator en bevat ook niet de gehele wereld, maar richt zich echt ieder aspect van het vliegen.

Je kunt deze sim aanschaffen voor €28. Meer informatie en aanschaf via de productpagina van Aerosoft. Ben je Steam gebruiker, kijk dan hier. Bekijk de trailer en alle features hieronder.

 

 

Features:

User Interface

  • Very easy to use interface, avoiding complex choices
  • Six languages for user Interface, radio, and audio  (English, Russian, German, French, Spanish, Dutch)
  • Three languages manuals (English, German, French, more to come) > View and download here

Gameplay

  • Training for many flight stages for Wilga and Blaník
  • Free flight with all models
  • Multiplayer mode with Aero tow (Wilga and Blaník)

Content

  • 25.000 km2 handcrafted terrain, near Mannheim, the border of the river Rhein
  • One high detail (Herrenteich), one low end detail airport, Speyer, close the Technik Museum Speyer
  • Five usable aircraft:
    • LET L-13 Blaník, a world-renowned glider, often used for training
    • Diamond HK36 Dimona, a two-seater motor glider
    • Schleicher ASK21, two-seater glider with good performance and solid aerobatics capacity
    • Schleicher ASK21 Mi, motorized self-launching glider with small rotary engine
    • PZL-104 Wilga, robust four-seater aircraft, used for many roles, very suitable to aero-tow

Graphics

  • Animated road traffic, ships
  • Ray-traced clouds
  • Animated windsocks
  • Birds in thermals
  • Cloud shadows
  • Advanced effects model, including dust
  • Detailed flexing of wing surfaces

Flight model

  • Per-element based flight model: each surface split into many sections, aerodynamic forces computed for each section individually, then integrated. 360×360 deg flow provides for natural and seamless stalls, spins, tailslide, hammerhead turn and so on
  • Blade element model (BEM) for variable pitch props provides for very precise computation of both linear (thrust) and rotational (asymmetric propwash) components
  • Mass-flow based model for internal combustion engine, correct computation of manifold pressure
  • Correct coupling of the prop to the engine (torque developed equalized by torque consumed by the prop)
  • Full computation of windmilling mode, including backward flow conditions
  • Gyroscope effect, p-factor effect computation

Sound model

  • Many sound effects normally not seen in simulators, for example the stick hitting its stops
  •  Flow sounds depend on angle of attack, not only airspeed
  • Far distance prop sounds

Atmosphere model

  • Thermals model based on real life flight test data
  • Thermals emerge, dissipate with time, get blown away with the wind
  • Velocity gradient across the upstream of thermals (so you can feel at which side of your aircraft the lift is highest

Area & Airports
WoA: Glider Edition is located at Herrenteich airport, a small airfield on the borders of the Rhine river, close to Speyer (and Speyer airport is included). A 50 by 50-kilometer area is modeled in high detail with tens of thousands of trees, houses and commercial buildings. A 30-centimeter ground image provides a perfect backdrop for the area.

Additional Features
When you are done with the training missions, you can connect to your friends and fly together. Use the Wilga to tow your friends to altitude or see who can perform the most precise landing. You could even try aerobatics as a team. The sky is the limit. This time for real. See you at the field!
