2014 Retrospective & What's Coming Next...

2014 was great for Infinite Flight, let's look back on what happened this year and see what's coming in 2015!

Live

Infinite Flight Live, our new Massively Multiplayer Experience was by far the biggest thing we have shipped since Infinite Flight was first released almost 4 years ago. The response from the community has been tremendous and we'd like to thank all of you who sent us your feedback about it.

This release was only the beginning of something much bigger. We're hard at work on a new mode that will create more order and add an entirely new fun dimension to the sim. The ability for certain users to act at Air Traffic Controllers in Infinite Flight!

Below are two preview screenshots of what it might look like. Bear in mind, those are from an alpha version of the controller mode, things will most likely change between now and the time we release this new feature. Note that this is something that will not be accessible to all users. As we've seen in our early tests, controlling a group of airplanes requires an entirely different set of skills. We'll talk about this in more details soon, so stay tuned!

Controller Mode at KSFO

Controller Mode - Tower Messages

Airplanes

We've added 1 business jet this year, the Citation X which featured our new aircraft rendering model with reflections, shiny parts, lighted cockpit, and reworked 2 widely popular airliners: the 747 and 737 with high definition cockpits. We hope you enjoy flying those as much as we do!
For next year, we're working on further improving the rendering quality of our models. It's too early to show anything right now, but let's just say that you won't be disappointed, you can trust us on this one.

Scenery

The two big improvements to the scenery in 2014 were the addition of the taxiway lines and new water rendering. We're working on improving the layout of many airports with the help of our community.

New Layout for Sydney Airport

New Layout for LAX with Tom Bradley International Terminal



We also did a lot of internal improvements to the scenery loading and rendering systems to support further development of bigger regions as well as other great features.

Community:

We're amazed everyday at what the community around Infinite Flight is building. One of the biggest groups, Infinite Flight Fan Group on Facebook has grown to over 8000 members. They organize events on Infinite Flight Live daily, we encourage you to check it out.
We're also organizing events every Friday, check out our Twitter feed and Facebook pages for more details. Our next event is scheduled for this Friday, we'll post details shortly.




Once again, thanks to the entire community of Infinite Flight users for making the app what it is today, your continued support and feedback is one of the main driving forces!

Best wishes for 2015 from the entire team at Flying Development Studio!

It's just Amazing THANK YOU FDS ! <3

J.P. Providenza said...

Can't wait!!.....great job FDS team, much respect and appreciation from this simmer...Happy New Year!!

Larose Royce said...

Excellent I.F. Great things in 2015. Everyone at FDS have a blessed and safe new year! ~LR

Şahhan Dumlu said...

Sounds good . But I wonder who will be the controller ? What if everyone wants to be a controller? Btw adding some clouds , rain , snow etc like this weather conditions will be good. Happy new year

Todd Baamonde said...

Great work as always guys. Happy New Year Matt, Phillipe, and David!

Andy said...

I agree with the calls for Airport modelling and weather such as clouds. I also think the engine needs refined as things are laggy on all iOS devices that I have tried including the latest iPad Air 2. I think the latest 737 and 747 look great but I actually turn down the quality on them to medium as the high quality with all the reflections doesn't look so nice to me and it also looks like fake cloud reflections on the wings etc. which just looks out of place. Not sure what needs improved in this regard unless it is for the other aircraft.

Unknown said...

Absolutely amazing! Looking forward for all changes you can made!!

Pickles S said...

The improvements have been wonderful and totally appreciate the work put in..would like to see better improved 787 and more planes added to that collect..and better taxi-ways at Tampa Intl.

Josh Suarez said...

You guys have worked so hard and have done an amazing job at all your improvements every time. I hope to be one of the future air traffic controllers in game when that feature comes out. I minor in air traffic control at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and can prove myself a capable air traffic controller

Josh Suarez said...

How will you guys choose the ATC's?

AgroGames TV said...

Port for pc's ?

jonathan aviles said...

Any Airbus Fleet or Turbo Props...????

turki haddadi said...

Thanks for giving us nicely times.
Now we need an interesting updates specially that in engine effects sounds and make some buildings outside and inside the airports.
Thanks again.

Stefan Dessalines said...

Wow! Live ATC would be a dream come true. Seriously!!

Great job Infinite-Flight!!!

Uriel Mazoz said...

Thank you FDS team, for what had already come and for what will come (maybe clouds and the P-51D😍). Keep doing things on the time you need, because as we can see, the final product (update) is always great!

Oscar Hong said...

Boston?

Kameron Dumlao said...

Real life sounds and Landing smoke look on facebook or twitter

Colvin O'Driscoll said...

Does anyone now what's going on with my infinite flight, I need your help. I have used this app on many devices, and on Christmas I had gotten a samsung tab 4 "7", version 4.4.2. When ever I taxi out our I am just waiting the ground is moving around me. At different camera angles the ground is moves alwell, even sometimes the grass moves over top of the ground. I had gone to best buy where I had purchased the tablet, they believe it was a problem in the downloading stage, and I would need a patch from the application to fix it, is this possible. I have redownloading the game numerous times with no success, please help.
thanks.

ZAID SALAMEH said...

No new planes

Aminul Hayat said...

JayRalstonSmith3 said...

Reading your posting, to be clear, we should NOT expect any new airplane models or regions in 2015?

Airplanes & Rollercoasters said...

Will you devs be picking people to be ATC? How will that work?

C.K. Tan said...

Can I know something,1) Where can I get Infinite Flight Live for android (Free). 2) Where can I download Infinite Flight for PC(free). 3) Where can i update my Infinite Flight(android), I download it at Mobomarket for free but no update,then I go to Play Store and no update too!!!

yaqin wen said...

I wish get so more aircraft :like cathay a340-300. jet blue a321 a320 a318 and united 787 and so ON .....

Clayson Chng said...

Can this game be free for a limited time plsplsplsplsplssss

Park Manhee said...

Improve the 787 and ERJ's(all of them) Autopilot! they are so bad.... even worse that 717's!

Sean Wangnick said...

If yes, sign me up!

Sean Wangnick said...

Because you need to pay for it!

Alex Buche said...

Terminal Buildings
Better Runway Markings
Ground Crews
Better Night Lighting
And different engine sounds

Alex Buche said...

Do you even know what to say? It takes some research and training to be a controller.

seungho park said...

Erm.... probably a mode where you can choose your job like in fsx multi player or maybe a paid add on or something like that.

seungho park said...

Probably some errors are present, so when that happens, refresh your device and try again. If it doesn't work, then try to contact flying Dev studio. They'll probably make an update so more bug fixes will be there. So just wait for the next update...

seungho park said...

In 2014, 2 aircraft have been REFURBISHED, so I,'m guessing they'll probably add SOME aircraft. But regions.... probably not.

seungho park said...

That's true.

Andy said...

Ouch. Average IAP had just increased by 33.3% for us in the UK thanks to Apple.

Akshay Jaithalia said...

Add an a319

dwayne christopher said...

Dont even know

dwayne christopher said...

Please infinite flight make an option to just leave the map on the screen instead of map and hud because there is a lot on the screen would be nice to use for taking iff and landing because when flying at cruising altitude i can disable it i always fly using flight plan so i have to use the map but would love to remove hud but leave map on please take it into consideration

Nardo said...

I agree

tutorialmasterfreak said...

Wingflex! I want to see the realism of the wing in turbulence.

THANKS!!!!!! Im sorry a lot but please add one of the following!!!!!!!!

William Driessen said...

Guys

your products are great, not so much the new 747 of which the flight characteristics are way off. Also the flaps / slats are not very accurate and extend / retract way too quick.

on another note, the prices per download have exceeded my budget. You increased the prices way too much, 5,19 euro per download is too much and you lost me as a regular customer

dwayne christopher said...

True

F218 said...

Not being funny but isn't it time for an update or the very least an updated message to give us a time frame of an update, I feel like you guys are like well we have got the money now let's abandon it, I mean the 747 update was good but not earth shattering and putting lines on the taxi ways wow brilliant. I will give it another week then I'm switching to use fsx!!!! Sorry for the blunt tone

Nardo said...

I agree ^

Benjamin Saucedo said...

Please add BETTER dream Liners and add a340-300, a318-20. Also, I would love it if you guys could add more alliance liveries such as an American One World. As for airlines, please add China eastern, China Southern a380 and Asiana a380.

dwayne christopher said...

At least Infinite flight we want to hear somthing

Dian Sya said...

How to pay ( active infinite flight subscription live)??

The jumping Pineapple said...

Please update your blog more I have been waiting for ages but great work

〰 Badekaeppi said...

Yep, had the same issue with the flaps of the 747 too. But you can solve the problem temporarily by driving them down slowly(1° then 5° and so on). Agree totally with the prices, but I've seen that on many apps in the play store, that the prices have turned rapidly higher. But still, its to much. I would be very glad if they turned the prices down again, because it's just not worth it anymore. Nevertheless, great simulator!!!

Colvin O'Driscoll said...

Hey, does anyone know why I can't purshase a year subscription to infinite flight. I have a membership and it expires on the 24 of February. Every time I go to by a membership it says this payment method cannot buy used for this purshase (IAI). I am trying to buy this through Google play store, thanks

Marcos Santos said...

Por favor, informem a possibilidade de incluir o idioma português no jogo ao vivo.
Quando estou jogando ao vivo e em uma região com muitas aeronaves, existem muitas informações e não consigo ler tudo.
Acredito que, o jogo ao vivo com idioma português, vou melhorar muito minha performance.

Grato!

F218 said...

This is not a joke anymore not even a response to anyone I suspect you have run out of money we have all paid in subscriptions that's why no news on any updates, and I'm not being funny the updates you do create are ok but so far from the stuff we all suggest!

At least even write a comment to us your fans and customers to make us feel like we are valued and all these live events wow great how about making an update to make more real

standles ley said...

Infinite flight please!! update for this year....I really love this game..I want this infinite flight awesome...thank you

Connor Greenwall said...

It should be today!

Connor Greenwall said...

Now I'm mad!

Stefan Dessalines said...

Strange that there is no communication at all. Last month of the first quarter.

F218 said...

I agree I am concerned the company has gone bust and that's why not even a small comment to reassure us!

F218 said...

Oh come on infinitie flight this is terrible customer service at least give a small comment it's the very least we deserve after spending our money on your product this is so rude

8851a0ba-7b6e-11e4-8246-c3f8b3d0d1c3 said...

Utterly ridiculous. There is ZERO benefit to having a subscription. The updates are too few and far between. The lack of communication is ridiculous. This isn't a company or a programming house, it's a boiler room designed to take your money and disappear. I will be writing his as a review as well on the App Store.

Stefan Dessalines said...

It seems there is better communication through the FB group.

F218 said...

To the staff at dev studio are you actually reading this why are you ignoring all of us is it too much to just write a one liner like hey we are working on something rather than ignoring us. Whilst your sim is good your customer service is terrible the worst I have seen, is this a mere hobby for you guys or is it a buisiness which you want to thrive? At the minute it appears it's neither very bad I must say

ferrari said...

when is 2015 update coming

Yellow Pilot 10 said...

When is the update coming? Can u plz post bout it? Kthx!

Billy Girvan said...

Liverpool john Lennon? More defined coast lines to see where you actually are, maybe a colour map overview? Great sim!!

Yellow Pilot 10 said...

The controller mode looks crucial

Malachi Lyday said...

Please tell us when the updates is PLEASE. If you don't tell me by April I will delete the app and encourage everybody else to. I'm like obsessed with airplanes. This is the only game with real airplanes. Please tell us when the update is. I'll come back on the last day of March at 5:00pm. If there's no word then I'm deleting the app and telling everybody else to too. Thanks for listening bye


P.S. I MEAN IT

F218 said...

Can you see what reaction you guys are creating I'm glad it's not just ms that's fed up of being ignored,

Why is it that now and then you respond to comments to your twitter or Facebook pages but you won't answer the most simple question, WHEN IS THE UPDATE COMING

I have a feeling that this was some form of project and now funding has finished your not interested!

This is terrible what you are doing you are letting your fans down also nearly a year ago you posted a photo of some man holding a microphone next to a plane and said "we are working on sounds" yet the sounds are the same so what have you actually done for a year?

Your forum page is full of people claiming this and that and talking rubbish amongst themselves yet no one but a few are actually like me concerned about the lack of contact

STOP IGNORING US WHEN IS THE UPDATE OUT i wish I never paid FULL subscription and instead paid extra to get FSX

00112345BOEING00112345 said...

Are you serious? Your pathetic! You think that just cuz your not getting your way IF is gonna drop everything and announce something big like that? Get over yourself. go to their Facebook page, they've got all sorts of stuff planned like United 777, Hawaii, Singapore, better sounds, all that good stuff. Calm down yo.

00112345BOEING00112345 said...

https://m.facebook.com/infiniteflightapp
Go to this website and calm down.

00112345BOEING00112345 said...

Some of you people need to relax. I find I frustrating that as I scroll down trough the comments, I see people complaining, they (for some unknown reason) do not post to the blog anymore. However, they are very up to date with their Facebook page. I strongly encourage ya'll to go check it out, I think you would be pleased. But you have to understand that these devs are working tirelessly to get these updates out ASAP, and your gonna sit here and complain about them not updating their blog??? Give me a break! It will get here don't worry. 😃

F218 said...

And what if one does not use Facebook is it your assumption that everyone is part of this said social networking site?

Have you not read the thread I am sure they are doing something but is it too much to ask for them to put a one line update on the blog they created.

I don't see how or why you feel you have the right to advocate and belittle concern's of others when really none of the comments/concerns were directed at you? Unless you work for devstudios?

Please don't get all high and mighty and try to be the flying hero and saint with the lack of grammar and punctuality you have just demonstrated on your last attempt at being the "good peace keeper"

Thank you

00112345BOEING00112345 said...

You don't have to have a Facebook account to view their page. I don't have an account. I just google "Infinite Flight Facebook" and it comes up and you can view their Facebook page.
I don't see any point in starting a war with you on a blog page considering I do not know you.

F218 said...

I agree however I don't appreciate your patronising comment to "calm down" and to "give you a break" considering as you state you don't know me.

Thank you for your time good day to you

00112345BOEING00112345 said...

And to you sir
