The team that has been developing amazing helicopters for X-Plane for the last years is moving to another platform right after the release of XP 11.It’s a sad day for the X-Plane helicopter fans. After the release of X-Plane 11, which is forcing a lot of developers to update their products and the impeding(?) release of Prepar3D v4, DreamFoil creatoins has decided to pull the plug on the sim that has been their home for so long.
According to Fred, the lead developer of DreamFoil, and the one we should thank for all the amazing work, “It makes sense to us to move on to another platform that’s been improving so much in terms of helicopter flight modelling”. The idea behind the move is to spread out to another market that has a huge fan base already and which is more comfortable for those coming from FSX as well.
When asked about the possibility of continue working on both markets, Fred states that “It’s not possible at all. We have very little resources and work very hard as it is right now to be able to achieve the high quality in our products as it is right now. Adding another sim would be absolutely crazy!”.
DreamFoil is currently working on their first P3D project and there’s a leaked image that we got from a partner.
It’s a sad, sad day…
EDIT: Yes, this was our April’s fool joke. Rest assured: DreamFoil is well commited into continuint to develop for X-Plane!
