Dev Update #2 - The Radar has new ICONS!

Dev Update #2 - The Radar has new ICONS!

It's been an entire week (actually 6 days because for once in my life I arrived early) - have you missed me? Awww, I missed you too :3

I'll break down everything as per usual below, however let me start by saying that YOU ARE AWESOME. Why, I hear you ask? Welp, we hit a new daily flight record on Saturday of 1503 (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Flightradar24 got nothin' on us.

Aight, let's go.



This week once again our primary focus is on projectFLY. Eventually it'll make sense as to why, or maybe it wont. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

There, intro done. NEXT.


We've released Open Beta 9 this week, you can find all of the changes here:

  • We've taken control back of support tickets. Yup, they were absolutely destroying us. We had over 300 in the system that needed some form of action. Thankfully we're back on top of it now and you can expect any further tickets to be answered within 12 hours (maximum 24 hours).

  • As a result of the above point - and I'm about to all caps this bit, so prepar3 your eyes - PEOPLE NEED TO START USING THE APP INSTEAD OF THE OLD WEBSITE AS 99.9% OF THE BUGS ARE NOW FIXED IN THE APP AND WE DON'T LIKE THE OLD WEBSITE ANYMORE SO WE REFUSE TO HELP IT OUT. Got it? Good :)

  • Another reason to use the app is that most of the connections on the website (Twitch, etc) are now broken because they wont allow us to authenticate your connection through multiple redirect URL's. Just get the app.

  • We mentioned a re brand last week, well that is still in the works and here is a teaser:


  • We're still being spiced by DigiCert. Not much else to say really. Still waiting. zzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

  • NETWORK DATA IS BAAAAAAACK! - Finally after what feels like a lifetime, you can now view VATSIM/IVAO/PilotEdge data on the radar.

  • RADAR NOW HAS NEW ICONS! - Just go look at it. It's a work of art.

  • GDPR - We said this week, the week isn't over yet :') It will however be sorted by beta update 10 (Next Wednesday). We've got until May 25th anyway, so chill yo bean.

  • Dispatcher is still being... dispatched??? It's still at the top of our to-do list. Wont be much longer.

  • Did I mention you should probably use the app?


At this time, although development has begun, we're keeping anything Simstall related close to home until we're all in agreement that we've got enough to share.


The A380 continues to be a part time development whilst we focus on projectFLY & Simstall. Keep an eye on future dev updates for any changes regarding this.


That concludes dev update #2 - If you have any questions/suggestions or would like to get in touch, we're available on all social media, using the comment section below or you can email [email protected]
