Xavier Tassin - Creator of GE Flight Sim

I'm Xavier, the guy with the unpronounceable name ;) I am making GE-FlightSimulator.com


I recently ended-up on your site and was happily surprised to see your review of GEFS in the FSBreak 83 podcast. I am actually delighted to hear positive comments on GEFS from hard-core simmers: that means a lot to me.


If I may, here is a bit more info:


- GEFS can freeze sometimes when used in Google Chrome as, oh irony, the Google Earth plug-in does not run well in the Google Chrome browser. I would recommend using Firefox (even IE would do better here).


- I was sad to see some glitches during your demo: GEFS is still a beta version and I am struggling with the Google Earth plug-in as it's not perfect yet either. I also had some hosting issues as traffic increased very fast and I had trouble to scale accordingly: that's a good thing though!


- You understood that very well: GEFS is a casual way of flying in Google Earth, although it is not meant to be an arcade game and is aimed at an aviation enthusiast public. Technical limitations and time constraint forbid any fancy improvements (good graphics, complex instruments, etc...) but I am hopping things will evolve in the right direction and may be GEFS will be able to step to the next level. I am convinced, though, that GEFS is a major improvement compared to the built-in Google Earth simulator.


- GEFS is gathering a slowly growing community of players (about 12,000 unique visitors this month) that appear to be somewhere between arcade gamers and hard core simmers. They want to fly something realistic enough without being too complex.


- I recently released version 0.6 that includes new aircraft (Alphajet, MD11, Hughes helli, Hot air balloon), real time weather, chat, preference panel, etc.

Regards,

Xavier
