Niccccccce! More roads to land on!

The landscape seem a bit flat though, is it in 2D or 3D?

P.S. I'd love to participate for beta but I'm not using any social networking sites. Is there still a chance for me to become a beta tester?

If you liked the first Flight Unlimited you'll love what we have in store.

The terrain around the city is 2D based on accurate satellite imagery. This is the way that Microsoft Flight Simulator does it for example. All of the hotels and buildings on the Las Vegas strip are modeled in full 3D. We'll also have mountains, lakes, etc.

The city is about 25 times larger than what you find in the Flight Unlimited currently in the app store.

We also have missions! If you have questions please ask.
Email us or add us on twitter for beta testing.

Beta'ed that one and liked the city concept! I still want a more maneuverable plane to navigate between those buildings though .

Oh I see...

We've been playing around with a brand new build that has some neat lighting effects and graphical features. Check it out! Almost console quality








What do you guys think?

The satellite image in the first picture is ugly, but I know it's not the dev's fault.

Shadows on some buildings' surfaces make the look bad, but the buildings themselves look great.

Looks AWESOME!

You could make it controllable by another iDevice like they did for chopper 2:

Think how great it would look on the big screen!

San Francisco will not be included. We're focusing on Las Vegas in this version. The city is pretty massive. Complete with traffic (cars, planes, etc.)

Multilayer is a good idea, we're looking into it.

Ok. I just remember in the original flight unlimited 2 thread you opened you were asking for requests for missions and mentioned some San Francisco landmarks. I also remember pictures of McDonald's and 7/11. Are those still in the game?
