Midsummer sale!

In a hot summer it's good to avoid the sun as much as possible. What better way to avoid sunburn than to fly our air-conditioned Phantom on and off the Midway,  or visiting the beaches of Chios in X-Plane?

You can get the SWS Phantom and Midway for 33% less and Chios for 25% less until August 10th 2018, enjoying the action your favourite simulators before going to the beach!

  The F-4B/N Phantom II is a high fidelity simulation of the most iconic cold war fighter. Coming with multiple variants of the F-4B/N, TacPack-ready and a carrier to fly from, experience the thrill of flying this legendary aircraft in FSX and P3Dv2, 3 and 4!

  The Midway Battlegroup contains high detail renditions of the USS Midway and USS Coral Sea as they served in the Vietnam war. Coming with a lot of unique features such as animated arrestor cables, custom animations as well as a fleet of escort ships! Experience naval aviation like it hasn't been done before! Available for FSX and P3Dv2, 3 and 4!

  Descent2View's Chios is a high quality representation of the greek island of Chios for X-Plane 11. With a great balance between high detail and great performance, this rendition of Chios is as enticing to visit in X-Plane as it is in reality!

Descent2View Chios launches on SimWorks Studios

Descent2View, a new developer from Greece will be releasing their first scenery on June 29th. That scenery is Chios airport and has been crafted with great attention to detail and performance. Covering the airport of Chios, named after Homer, the scenery contains hundreds of custom objects, animations and takes full advantage of X-Plane 11's PBR technology!

Why do we care? At SWS we have been looking towards both scenery design and X-Plane for a long time, and D2V brings high-quality work and X-Perience, meaning that both teams could expand their portfolios in both simulation platforms. At SWS we are always open to supporting select developers that do high-quality work and want to form a win-win-win collaboration for SWS, D2V and the customer. D2V seem to be exactly this kind of team.

D2V's scenery will be available on the 29th of June from our e-shop and will launch at 26.99€ including VAT. A new, X-Plane section will appear on our menu to host this scenery, which will hopefully be the first of many X-Plane projects coming to our page.

SWS goes to Portugal!

This weekend of May 5 & 6 we will be at Flight Sim 2018 in Sintra, Portugal. If you are visiting the Air Museum there, we would love to meet you and have a chat!

On Sunday we will present a tech demo of our carrier-based AI aircraft on a CEX-powered version of Team SDB's Enterprise. There we will present our vision for of navy and naval aviation in P3D & FSX for the future, with the foundation provided by CEX, our carrier technology. A video presentation will be uploaded on our youtube channel a few days later as well.

Lastly, from Friday 8:00GMT until Monday at the same time, our products will be 15% off on our website, so take advantage of the opportunity, by using the discount code SWSPORTUGAL on checkout!

Two years of SWS!

This day marks the 2nd anniversary of the F-4B/N Phantom II and SimWorks Studios' debut in the Flight Simulator market! During the past two years we learned valuable lessons such as working around the problems that FSX/P3D throws at you when you try to do things it wasn't designed for. Another important and constant lesson is how to take customers' criticism and improve our products so that they can be satisfied. Despite these and many more obstacles, though, we are here in strength, growing and creating the next and great SWS projects!

The USS Nimitz is first in line and will come with our signature carrier tech, a high fidelity model and some big surprises that we will start uncovering in a few months! The T-37 is also advancing, with more systems making it in the cockpit, giving us something to look at when test-flying!

Lastly, we have some renders to show you from items that will be on the Nimitz. With this carrier we want to start a lineup of modern naval projects, while pushing the bar to a higher standard of visual and simulation quality!

Stay tuned for more soon!

AI Carrier ops!

It has been entrenched in the beliefs of FSX/P3D simmers that having AI aircraft landing and departing from a moving carrier is very hard. This is no longer the case! We want to show you a short video of an AI aircraft landing on a moving carrier in P3D.

This is a  Work-in-Progress prototype showing an AI controlled aircraft approaching, trapping and clearing the landing area on our AI Coral Sea. This feature will be part of a future add-on and will work with any aircraft carrier that is enhanced with our Carriers Extended! technology, such as our own Midway & Coral Sea.

You can find the carriers (25% off) and SDK in the buttons below!
