Post news RSS Pioneers of Flight mod nearing completion!

After a long busy summer, work has once again resumed on this Pioneers of Flight mod. It will include at least four flyable fix-winged aircraft and one flyable dirigible.

Posted by on

This past summer was very busy for me, so not much headway was made on this upcoming mod. However, since late August steam has been picking up and I have some progress to report. All of the 3d meshes are by Lewis aka LesterBoffo with tweaks, remapping and all of the coding by me.

The 1912 Eastbourne Monoplane:


The Santos-Dumont 14-bis:


The Farman III:


The La Mouche:


The Early Dirigible:


Lewis and I are planning a release to be within the next couple of months. Stay tuned!

To further comment, there are still many more aircraft that are a WIP. These will probably end up in a second Pioneers of Flight Plane Pack, along with more missions and possibly even an early era airfield in England. All of the tricks from our sleeves haven't been used up yet!

Very good job! One of the best mod ever in range due to the lack of abbordation of (very)early flight era, which was indeed very intense and complex. Keep on with more ''obscure'' aircrafts/air vessels/ land units !

Gents,

I know it has been a while since my last update and I apologize. Fear not, for work has not totally stopped! My plans are to release the first pack of aircraft before Christmas Day. This summer and fall have been very busy for my wife and I, and I've had to tone down the amount of time I can dedicate to this project. But those times are now over! I hope to get the files together, tested further and out for public consumption ASAP. :) Stay tuned!
