Flight1 is excited to announce the official launch of a new website – www.simstop.com . The culmination of two years of development, this web site will enable www.flight1.com to focus on their core in-house developments and developer relationships, and also allow them to provide an online version of their hugely successful Flight1 Open Day events that have drawn over 1300 visitors.
SimStop comprises four distinct but interacting areas:
SimStop Articles & Tutorials
SimStop is a brand new magazine-style website that brings together the very best of flight simulation – both online and socially. You’ll find overviews, tutorials, articles, and hints & tips from both professional and community writers. And of course, you’ll still find special news on upcoming titles from a wide range of well-known Flight1 developers plus updates on existing products. You can contribute too on all aspects of aviation and flight simulation – whether it’s a few paragraphs on a product that you feel is relavent to the community, or longer more in-depth features of any aspect of Flight Simulation.
The SimStop Store is powered by Flight1,with the same high standards of customer-service you have come to expect from Flight1 including their renowned 30-day money back guarantee.
Working with leading developers and publishers, they will be offering a wider range of titles from its developer partners than you have previously seen at Flight1.com Every product they sell will be tested by the SimStop team to ensure that it meets their standards. This means that not just any flight sim product will be listed. It has to have that something special that they themselves would like in a product they were buying!
Flight1 will of course not change in regards to their own range of in-house developed titles. SimStop is additional range of titles that they felt would be better presented on a new website.
The Flight1-developed SimStop Connect – unique FREE software exclusive to SimStop – brings flight sim pilots together.
See who is flying in your area or anywhere in the world, where they are flying and even see the view live from their cockpit. With both text and voice chat, you can chat with friends as you fly or demonstrate how to fly that difficult approach. You can also use SimStop Connect as an auxiliary moving map on a 2nd screen. Flight Simulator X is not even required to get many of the Connect benefits! Your privacy is protected and you can choose to interact as little or as much as you want.
SimStop Connect is an actively developed free product by Flight1 and they do want your feedback to make it an invaluable accessory for Flight Simulator X.
Following the immensely popular Open Days, Flight1 feels strongly that flight simulation is a social hobby.
To help bring people together online or in real life, their innovative SimStop Groups system encourages common interests and meeting socially in local user groups. A percentage of any purchase you make from the SimStop Store can be assigned to your chosen home group. You then use the accumulated money to organise a group event, whether it’s to hire a meeting room or to pay for a group dinner at a local restaurant!
SimStop hopes to welcome you on-board soon!
