Career Mode Beta Opt-In
23 MARCH   - DTG CRYSS



Greetings Airmen and Airwomen,

Our development team have been working on something a little extra from your current Flight Sim World experience and we’d love to hear what you think!

Today, the beginnings of a career mode have been released onto a beta branch which is freely accessible for everyone who owns Flight Sim World. This isn’t a fully-fledged feature just yet, but we are laying the foundations for future work as part of getting IFR functionality and our first jet into the sim.

You can opt in to the beta by right-clicking on Flight Sim World in your Steam library and selecting “Properties”. From there, select the “Betas” tab and enter the beta access code: DFSWpArTester18 and press “Check Code”. You’ll then be able to check out Career Mode once your sim has finished updating. The update size will be approximately: 243.4MB.

Note: Career Mode is the only mode accessible within this Beta branch. You can of course continue to enjoy missions, free flight and multiplayer by swapping back to the main game.

Let us know what you think of Career Mode in the Dovetail Forums![forums.dovetailgames.com]

Career Mode Update #5 Now Live
20 APRIL - DTG SAMUEL



We're introducing Career Mode Update 5 onto the beta branch, with fixes to issues caused by failures in maintenance missions and a slew of other fixes. This update is majorly driven by feedback that you have provided to us, so please do continue to post in the Career Mode forums with any feedback that you may have. You can read the full list below:

Support for serious failures have now been added:
•   All engine failures are marked as serious failures will now allow for landing anywhere.
•   A Red failure message indicates an engine failure and should will allow a user to land anywhere.
•   Switching off the engine (or just parking, if it has failed) will now bring up the post flight screen.
•   Reputation will be added but no expenses will be deducted.
•   Parking on the runway yields a 50% job reputation increase and landing off runway yields a 10% job reputation increase.
•   Failure messages are marked Yellow for non-engine failures and Red for serious engine failures.

Several updates have been made to the UI:
•   Half stars supported for reputation and both full and half stars should be visible for reputation score.
•   Updated reputation star size and text.
•   Updated job tile text colours.
•   Updated dynamic weather icon.

Added support for switching between different weight measures for cargo.

Added auto-switching to log tab when a new log message arrives.

Added information with further job details, showing distance, weather, passengers, cargo and maintenance data.

Added greater level of randomisation of failures.

Fixed a bug where the ATC voice was not matching the chosen gender in the career mode profile.

Fixed a crash that occurred when selecting a pilot voice in general settings.

Fixed a bug where the ATC tab would be hidden on alternate flights.

Fixed a bug where there would always be 3 failures and failures will now match the job template.

Fixed a bug where the ATC was being muted.
