Matt Davies, the popular streamer and creator of ProjectFly and SimTweaks, released a statement earlier today about the upcoming ProjectFly v3 release. You may be thinking: Wait, wasn’t that supposed to come out last year? Well, yes. But the ProjectFly team has been working tirelessly to completely rewrite the entire application. This will make it much better than it ever was. As Matt stated, “this update is an entirely new rewrite of well, everything, it’s going to take some effort on our part to make the transition as smooth and effortless as possible for you”.
What is ProjectFly?
If you haven’t heard of ProjectFly yet, it’s basically a community that’s sort of like a virtual airline, where you can fly any aircraft you want and log your flight. You can then see your flights and track the progress of other flights on their radar. Go ahead and take a look at their website here to find out more!
v3 Open Beta
In order to iron out any last minute bugs and get the application pushed out, the ProjectFly team will release v3 as an open beta. This release is right around the corner, so we can expect it very soon. The beta period is expected to last about a week, and then v3 will be pushed to the public. Another thing to be excited about is a group flight on launch of v3. Everyone is welcome to join in, and Matt will release more details later.
Enough talk about how good ProjectFly v3 is supposed to be! Let’s see what exactly has changed:
- A full rewrite of every single logic from the ground up – the app will be v3.0
- All in one system
- Will work on any PC or tablet. It will have limited functionality on a phone
- Will be cross compatible – available to Windows, MacOS & Linux users
- The bridge that connects the sim to the app will only be available if you’re using the desktop app (you can still view everything via your web browser though)
- Optimized to work on all resolutions
- Automatically connects to Flight Sim – no more running 3rd party apps to start your flight
- Messenger System (for chatting with friends & also integrated with the support ticket system)
- Fully functioning dispatcher using Real World Technology, with the ability to also use SimBrief (and also the ability to do everything yourself if you’re that way inclined)
- No longer reliant on FSUIPC/XUIPC – the bridge is now completely native to the sim (FSX/P3D/X-Plane with more planned simulators to follow)
