The update is not available yet but we wanted to give you more details by answering some the most frequently asked questions.
When is the update coming out?
Soon, we wanted to release this month but last minute issues made it difficult. We can't give you an exact date (and it is pointless to speculate) since there can always be new issues, but rest assured that we are doing everything we can to get it to you as soon as possible. The update is "feature complete" but there are still a few issues we need to address.
What is Infinite Flight Live and do I have to pay for it?
Infinite Flight Live allow pilots to fly together in the same environment. Continue reading for a more detailed list of features.
As we mentioned in the past, Infinite Flight Live will be available as a subscription. We spent a lot of time looking at the various surveys that our community conducted and we made sure that our pricing model is in the expected range to satisfy the most people.
At launch, Infinite Flight Live will be available at $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year.
Why do I have to pay for Infinite Flight Live?
You don't have to pay for it. You are completely free to not spend any money in Infinite Flight. We keep adding and improving a lot of free features and content with each update, all that for less than the price of a Big Mac meal :)
Another reason for a subscription model is that we want users who are committed to what we are trying to achieve and will do their very best to make Infinite Flight Live a great experience for everybody.
Do I need to create an account to use Infinite Flight Live?
In order to use Infinite Flight Live, you will need to create an account using your Google or Facebook credentials. We might add more ways to create an account but at launch, a Google or Facebook account will be required. We only use those for authentication purpose and will never post anything without your explicit authorization (we hate apps that do that!).
I purchased an Infinite Flight Live subscription on iOS, can I use it on Android as well?
Yes, you can use the same subscription on any supported device as long as you sign-in using the same credentials.
Ok fine, I'll pay, but what are the features included with Infinite Flight Live?
- 24/7 access to Infinite Flight Live from any supported device
- ATC (Unicom only for now)
- Live Weather
- Realistic airspace classes
- Ranking system
- Flight tracking
- Improved ATC
- Temporary Airspace Restrictions for events
- Virtual Airlines
For now there will be a limit of how many aircraft can be displayed at the same time based on your device. Only the closest aircraft will be displayed, the others will appear as simple dots in the sky. As we add more features and new devices come out, we realized it was too complicated for us to automatically adapt the quality based on the device. Also, someone might care more about having beautiful aircraft rather than our new and improved water (in case he can't have both due to having an older device). For that matter, we decided to expose a few quality options in the settings in order for you to tweak and optimize your experience based on your personal preferences. Keep in mind that those are experimental and changing those settings might cause issues and crashes.
Will you release the update for iOS and Android at the same time?
We will start with Android and will limit how many people can signup for Infinite Flight Live. If all goes well, we will launch on iOS and quickly open new spots. This is to make sure our servers can handle the load and to ensure a smooth start. We count on your support and understanding in the first few weeks of Infinite Flight Live as we make sure everything runs smoothly for everyone.
It's Friday, where is my eye-candy screenshot?
Here you go :)
