It looks like a new (possibly big) Flight Sim website bringing together news on a bunch of the new engines.  The more eyes on Outerra the better I guess.

Well, it may have been a scam, based around Outerra. After I started posting links, the site disappeared.  =|

Why do you think they are selling anything?... It's a news site....

And one that is now back under heavy construction...  ::)

Well, Nextgenflightsim website is now open for business, looking for admins, forum moderators and members on a site that apparently wants to help organize a kickstarter eventually for..... A next generation flightsim.

They are also looking at candidate engines and Outerra is in the running.

This website is kind of shaddy.

Screaming at your face every page refresh that you should subscribe because no one wants to register yet is... strange. They are also really unclear of what they want to do. It's interesting to do a news site about the potential of several engines for the futur of simulation but saying you are going to launch a kickstarter for it... It's like saying: "hey, we need a better car, give me money so I pay someone else to make the car".

But from what I read in his posts, he seems like an honest guy who wants to see the flightsim world move. Some of his reasons are a bit sad:"As an older flight sim enthusiast I figure I’ve got between 25 and 30 years left on this planet…". I think he just probably overestimate the possibility of a crowd based development :)

Keep in mind, if the mythical Outerra Kickstarter ever appears, they would be appealing to many in the same demographic, initially......

They didn't really announced anything, except that they were working on something for 2016. People are expecting them to use the Flight engine. I just took a look and they are still recruiting people:

There are parallel tracks to all of this. Dovetail started a thread at Avsim and on the Steam forums requesting input as to what people would like to see in a new Flightsim. Both threads are ongoing, have several thousand views and many, many replies.

In the meantime, The nextgen Flightsim originator now has two ongoing threads at Avsim, with a high amount of discussion and interest. (and pessimism)

Thanks :) These threads, especially the Avsim one, are really interesting.
Dovetail is still not giving any hints of their plans. What I find great is that many things that experienced simmers want are compatible with Outerra. I always though that the strong content base on FSX was a key element wihch could hold back the whole scene, but many users are asking for a fresh start in this thread. Performances are also one of the most requested element, 20 fps is not a standard anymore :)
Then, people want tools and an open environment.

Question is, in what direction Dovetail will go? Good thing for them, the Flight fiasco has already make it clear for majority of users that they can't expect a full flight-sim and an improved engine. The key element will be the tools given to the community.
