REMEX Software has released a new trailer showcasing some of the features of the upcoming bush flight simulator, Deadstick.
Initially announced during FlightSim2017, Deadstick puts you in the place of bush pilot earning a living delivering cargo while facing various challenges such as navigating through low cloud, attempt daring off airport landings, or surviving storms generated by a dynamic and unpredictable weather system. The simulator focuses on true stick and rudder flying, there is no autopilot, de-icing systems, few navigation aids and limited instruments.
Deadstick consists a full sandbox career mode where you can customise, maintain, and upgrade your aircraft as you take on more dangerous jobs, enabling you to earn extra profit or learn new skills. You can also explore the virtual world in first-person, perform walkarounds, pre-flight checks and manually load/unload cargo.
According to REMEX Software, the aircraft features a highly realistic (and unforgiving) flight model, with effects such as prop wash, torque and P-factor. It has an equally detailed damage and failure model including persistent wear and tear. Systems simulation consists of a fully functional study-level cockpit along with a electrical system with realistic electrical loads and circuit breakers.
The fictional landscape is heavily inspired by Alaska and Idaho, featuring dense foliage and vegetation while the dynamic weather engine comes with effects such as atmospheric scattering, volumetric clouds and fog. Deadstick is scheduled for release on Steam later this year
