Dovetail Games updates Flight Sim World to use advanced weather tech, “trueSky”

Dovetail Games and virtual environment specialists Simul revealed they have entered into a partnership which will result in Simul’s flagship trueSKY technology launching into Dovetail Games’ Flight Sim World® today.

The integration of trueSKY into the continually improved Flight Sim World provides for a staggering visual overhaul to the in-game weather experience. Volumetric clouds, fog and localized precipitation bring about the need to fly in, around and over developing weather, while stunning lighting and sunsets will reward those navigating the skies.

“Our ongoing goal for Flight Sim World is to look for ways in which we can advance flight simulation beyond the types of experience available today,” said Dovetail Games executive producer Stephen Hood. “Simul’s trueSKY offered the kind of leap in weather and sky technology we needed in order to make that happen.”

“The implementation of trueSKY into Flight Sim World is very exciting for all of us,” said Simul founder and CEO Roderick Kennedy. “trueSKY offers such a vast array of experiences, which are perfectly showcased in a whole world simulation such as FSW. From sunny days to howling tempests, trueSKY’s weather themes are all present in Flight Sim World, and they all look stunning.”

Flight Sim World is now available to purchase on Steam for $24.99/£19.99/ €24.99.
