Mettar Simulations: 2018 And Beyond


You may not know the name “Mettar Simulations“, but you likely know the main man behind that name very well.
Matt Davies is well known in our community for his Twitch streams and YouTube channel (formerly going by the screen name Belynz,  saving the P3D Tweak Assistant tool (better known as PTA) from being relegated to history by the previous owner and developer, while also giving life to the popular projectFLY flight log-book and dispatch web-app which started the chain of events that lead to the creation of Mettar Simulations.

Matt has spoken freely about the plans for his company on his Twitch streams in the past, giving some details to his followers, but generally not going too far into detail. Thankfully though, he has released a statement via Facebook today giving us an insight as to what happens from here for Mettar.
He starts off by describing the beginnings of the company, how it came to be, and details the team that he has on board. Continuing, he tells of the events that lead to the creation of the company, such as PTA, projectFLY, Simstall, and the start of his highly-anticipated A380 project.
The overview that follows goes further into detail on these projects, such as where they’re at now, and what the plans for the future are.

projectFLY is already released, as most would know, but Matt says that it’s not being forgotten just because it’s the eldest child. He tells us that the team are continuously improving on the website, adding features and data accuracy, fixing bugs, and providing support to the many users already making use of the free tools every day. He describes it as:

An all in one solution to your virtual flying. Using our state of the art desktop application, you can browse global schedules (updated every 30 days), dispatch flights using real dispatching software (yes, the exact same as real airlines use on a daily basis), manage your own fleet and track your flights in real time. It’s the fanciest logbook you’ll ever use. projectFLY is free to use.

If you haven’t already familiarised yourself with projectFLY, check it out here (or try the v3 beta).

FSDT Roadmap – KORD and KLAS Remakes, KCLT and KSDF On Its Way


FSDreamTeam have today revealed it’s upcoming plans for their scenery development roadmap. Revealed on FSDreamTeam’s forums, the team revealed that they will be completely remaking KORD from scratch, and once they’ve finished that, Las Vegas will get the same treatment.

“Yes, we confirmed in other threads, we decided the next major update will be a COMPLETE remake of KORD, from the ground up, to bring it to the very latest status of graphic and features, like KMEM. Next after KORD will be a KLAS remake.”

Of course, this left others wondering ‘what next?’

“At the same time, the next releases will be KCLT (Charlotte Douglas, the 8th busiest airport in the USA, ahead of KLAS, KIAH, KSEA and KMCO), and KSDF ( Louisville ), which will pair very well with KMEM, being the home of UPS. Those two are being made by two new, and separate teams, so their development, which has already being going on for almost a year, won’t affect the KORD remake.”

Considering how popular KMEM was after its release, thanks to its additional features, we’re pretty excited by this too!
