    Announcing A Guide to Flight Simulator: Extended Edition

    Following on from the success of A Guide to Flight Simulator, we are super excited to announce a brand new product that extends our original guide. A Guide to Flight Simulator: Extended Edition will continue to provide accurate, supportive and informative information about your new simulator, whilst adding more tutorials to improve your flying skills.

    Upon release, A Guide to Flight Simulator: Extended Edition will come with over 50-pages of brand new information covering a wide-variety of topics and information. Not only that, but two all-new tutorials will take you on a journey across New Zealand landing on both land and sea. We'll be showing you how to pilot the Top Rudder Just103Solo and also the Icon A3.

    Following the release this June, A Guide to Flight Simulator: Extended Edition will be updated on a regular basis to continue evolving as and when the simulator does. This will also include even more tutorials for those bigger aircraft, along with dedicated sections on advance controller set-ups, professional camera operations and much more. When the Extended Edition releases, we'll be providing you with key dates and information on what to expect in future free updates.

    Just as we did with A Guide to Flight Simulator, the Extended Edition will be presented in stunning detail, easy-to-follow steps and tips and tricks from certified pilots.

    A Guide to Flight Simulator: Extended Edition will be made available sometime during June 2021. Keep your eyes peeled on our Facebook and Twitter feeds for more information.

    Existing Customers

    Existing customers for A Guide to Flight Simulator will be eligible to upgrade to the Extended Edition at a discounted rate. By upgrading, you will continue to get extensive and regular updates as the simulator changes, along with new tutorials and further insight to get the most out of your simulator. Pricing details will be shared soon.

    Our current product, A Guide to Flight Simulator will continue to be available for customers to enjoy the extensive guide that has already helped many simmers. Bug fixes with A Guide to Flight Simulator will continue to be released, but information and tutorial updates will only be made available through the Extended Edition of the guide.

    We want to thank all customers who have provided feedback and helped us on this exciting journey so far and can’t wait to share with you plans for the future the Guide to Flight Simulator series.

      I and many others would certainly appreciate a detail, step by step using the MSFS SDK. I think this would be a very welcome addendum in the future, perhaps, to many

      Bug fixes?? As in typos??? I bought a product, they promised "NOTE: The publisher has regular plans to improve and expand this guide. Purchase now and you will be entitled to all future versions at no additional charge." I think there were 2 updates, now a "new" product.
      Legally probably right. Emotionally not what I expected. No more Sofly for me.

      Reviewing our news coverage of this, there have in fact been 11 free updates, as the guide grew from an original 120 pages to the current 282 pages, all with no price increase or any additional charges to early purchasers.

      Yes 11 updates but still misleading. So whats next --Oh yes "Premium Deluxe Extended Edition" in 6 months.!! It is hard not to see this as Bait and Switch--but let's see what the price to existing customers is first before judging this as very cheap salesmanship. I have the "first" edition and it is fantastic but would have thought that by just keeping it first class they will attract more and more new customers. At least so far Asobo/Microsoft have not charged for any updates to the program.

      I totally agree. As a Sofly Guide Buyer, I feel completely conned. This is the way in which you kill the goose that lays the golden eggs.

      I missed this one too, could have been when I was vacationing in Somalia
      One creator I have used, does send out an email notice when an upgrade is available.
      I have found, it is not a perfect world, but each of us need to mellow out, and take a deep breath.

      You are right about the number of updates. I bought it on december 24th 2020.
      I dont consider myself an early purchaser but certainly not a late purchasers.
      2 (or 3, cant exactly remember) updates is not what I felt was what I read in their description.

      My personal feeling is that (some) developers start getting a little greedy.
      They should have waited untill some time after the xbox release to see what that brought them in revenues.
      I dont have the feeling beeing ripped of.
      I just have the feeling I should read descriptions with a more negative approach.

      I am with Hans 57 I totaly agree with everything he said. I feel well and truly ripped off! If I wasn't so tired after a long long dirve I would add to his comments with my own rant about sofly and their updates for life :-) :-) :-) So no more sofly for me either :-)
