New flying game idea
« on: September 09, 2015, 11:37:17 PM »
Guys,

Recently, I've been watching this reality show on youtube:



And I really got inspired by those bush pilots, so may be we could create a small game in this topic, about Bush Pilots in Indonesia.

Do you think this going to be a fun game? Let us know.

Thanks,

Phillip

This would be a great game if it were made as realistic as possible. I really don't see an Arcade or Easy mode in this game being fun to play at all - I mean, what would you do? You can't shoot other people down. So it would have to have good realism, as it'd pretty much be a non-combat flying sim. That being said, from a marketing standpoint, not alot of other people in the Gunship community enjoy Realistic mode, tbh. The people who play Realistic mode to enjoy the nice flight model are a minority. It might not do too well commercially speaking. This is all my opinion, of course. I might not know what I'm talking about.

I like an idea for a game like this. This definitely needs to be as realistic, and as challenging as possible, on mobile devices. I'd like to see high quality graphics, physics, and better crash models, with detailed cockpits, but the cockpits don't need to be interactive (having to use controls, in the same way as real life).

You should also have a tutorial, so players will be able to learn more easily.

Are you considering a general, and commercial aviation sim, like Infinite Flight? One advantage that this can have over that, is that you probably won't need to pay for online multiplayer.

So few people play realistic battle, in all the current games. Mobile devices weren't as powerful at that time, and the physics easy, when Philip implemented multiplayer. A lot of people are used to easy mode, even now.

Realistic mode will have weather effects, night flight and no traffic label.

You will be assigned with tasks to transport goods to those remote airports and earn XPs to unlock better aircrafts.

Also, would this game be paid, or free? With IAP, or not?

It's gonna be $5, no IAP since it's a small game more like XtremeSoaring.

Those pilots have an insane job.. Imagine flying at 12,000 feet but only actually having 500 feet between you and the ground... Like 0 margin for error. And those runways... damn.

You could also add places like Alaska too. Maybe add some float planes too.

It would be a nice game, but i would like to see WoD and GS4 Korea done before making this sim

I'd like to see this,sounds cool,Flying cargo isn't seen often in games so it'd be sort of cool to see for once

Then we could have racing but it'll be dangerous and intense! This would be a great game for those who don't like getting a missile lodged in their tails.
Good things come to those who wait.
