What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Flyout is an ambitious, long term, one-man project and releasing it in Early Access is the best way to speed up development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Flyout will be ready to exit Early Access once all current and planned editor and sandbox features have been implemented and polished and the game has been made more accessible to a wider audience. This will take approximately two years.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Currently planned features are:
-improved accessibility
-missile editor
-VTOL systems
-interactable cockpit parts
-LUA scripting
-missions and combat
-music
-UI improvements”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You can build amazing creations as long as you know what you're doing. There are currently no in-game tutorials and you may have to figure things out on your own.
Currently implemented features are listed in the "ABOUT THIS GAME" section.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price of the game is going to increase as it becomes more polished and new features are added.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Flyout Discord community and beta testers have been heavily involved in the development process since the beginning.”

About This Game

Flyout is an aircraft building game with an emphasis on design freedom and realistic physics, sound and effects. Use the in-game modeling tools to create an aircraft of any shape, add and configure engines for your needs, set up control surfaces and take your design on a test flight around an earth-sized procedurally generated planet.

Editor Tools



-freeform fuselage editor
-wing editor
-material and texture settings
-paint tools and import of custom decals
-configurable turbines, ramjets, piston engines and electric motors
-configurable propellers and rotors that can be connected to any engine(s) via gearbox
-configurable landing gear
-configurable control surface and joint inputs
-fly-by-wire settings
-basic cockpit interior parts
-import reference images to create replicas
-modding support that currently allows import of .obj models and textures

Simulation


-wing shape, span and sweep have a large effect on flight behavior
-fuselage drag is calculated from shape
-engine simulation
-aircraft sounds change with design
-realistic atmosphere model
-wind, turbulence, vertical draft
-ground effect

BEFORE YOU BUY:

This game is not easy. There are no in-game tutorials and tool tips are limited due to Early Access status.
Fuselage editing is similar to modeling in any 3D software, although much simplified.
There will be bugs due to the highly unrestricted editor and Early Access status of the game.
Basic understanding of aircraft physics and flight controls is required or at least recommended.
