NGiS’ New Flight Simulator Project

NGiS-logoNext Generation Interactive Software is a group who plans to develop a flight simulator worthy of the 21st century, aimed at hardcore simmers to beginners, for military or civilian flights.

The developers team include experienced members in flight simming and they sent us their first press release.

“It is absolute nonsense to expect our extensive Flight Simulation community to forever sit upon its’ yoke free hands. Awaiting the arrival of an ‘anointed one’ to march us all into the 3D pixelated sunset world of a next generation, fresh and original Flight Simulator fit for the 21st Century. Rumour has it that the waiting time is over!

With the recent arrival on to the market of the NGiS (Next Generation iNTERACTiVE Software©), Group, there is a feeling of electric anticipation gathering high up in the atmosphere. They have recently announced the beginnings of a newly constituted gathering of industry professionals, intent on producing a product that will literally blast all other comers right out of their newly generated graphical water interfaces!

It is a grand boast, but far from an idle boast. With the confidence of those with years, even decades of expertise in the production of all things ‘flight sim’, the team is already hard at work setting the scene, (and the scenery!). As they get down to the task of beginning the process of writing a completely new program, with no remnants or traces left over from any previous flight simulator versions. This is not an adaptation. It is after all a completely fresh start.

The initial thrust for the team, is to fully engage with emerging technologies in a consolidated effort to bring this newly choreographed development to an eagerly awaiting audience. The time for rehearsal has only just begun, and they cannot wait to present you with the end production on opening night.

They are taking ‘an all things to all flyers’ approach. Giving more breadth, depth and scope to what has hitherto been available. Taking the best from what is around, and opening the market up to a much wider customer base.

From beginners to experts. Gamers, casual users and die-hard flight simmers will be suitably catered for. Are you involved or running a virtual airline, and do you want to open up what is available to your own community? Do you specialise in military, historical or maybe just like to chug around the skies in your highly polished GA craft? Or are you an air cargo tramp, even a small time operator, carrying out charter flights over the African savannah?

Whatever your biome and however deep and diverse your flora and fauna  needs, you will be catered for at a highly developed level. Much higher than you have seen before.

Over the coming months the team will be presenting you with regular updates on progress. Like all good thrillers, they will leave you eagerly awaiting the next episode before the final scenes are set and the spool begins to roll. As the Director calls for silence and…….. Action!

This project is a laughably amateur joke. Borick’s business model (“I need highly-skilled professionals to make my product for me for free, which I will own entirely, and if I make any money in the end I might give you some”) has been tried thousands of times since the dawn of the internet by equally clueless hucksters and shysters who have never managed a software project of any size. They all go down the same long-form sales letter path as on Borick’s site, using flowery language with allusions to hopes, dreams and opportunities thinking professional software developers are idiots and… Read more »

As a Simflight member I’m obviously entitled to post my point of view here. Its sad therefore to see one of NGIS’s senior team members labelling me in such extremely derogatory terms, which I found on the NGIS forum today- ——————— “…People like Chuck M. will ALWAYS try to attack us. Unfortunately, this sort of folks are usually in the majority on public forums. They are frustrated, have nothing better to do than be negative, giving them that last bit of perceived ‘importance’ in their otherwise worthless lives. PLEASE ignore them ! We don’t care if people lie, spread false… Read more »

Although such perspectives are quite biased and based upon assumptions and not fact, it’s to be expected. We here at NGiS are quite capable of sustaining the ongoing development of a Next Generation Flight Simulator that has every intention to surpass what is currently available in regards to dynamics, atmosphere, as well as the virtual environment in which we’ll fly in and the tools, in spite of the assumptions, are available… you just need to know where to look. It’s my hope that those who have read the below assumptions will take the time to visit our public forum and… Read more »

I did actually read the rest of your announcement Stephen but it seemed to be yet more of the same promises and intentions that we’ve been hearing since May 2015. More to the point. You never answered my point about why you failed to mention the fact that NGIS has lost access to the Unigine engine.. Simflight have been kind enough to give your project a plug here, so the least you could have done was to let members here know that actually the screenshot on the article is now invalid, as is any reference to the Unigine engine and… Read more »

If it’s any consolation, I was given the exact same treatment over at flightsim.com not so long ago.

Thanks Johan.

Yes that makes sense that NGIS posters often tend to be quite harsh and on the defensive if they are given any sort of negative reaction to their grand dream. Its also a consolation to me that this Francois guy who reckons my like is worthless is a Frenchman by the name of ‘Dumas’ !!
You couldn’t make it up!

Cheers

Stop press!!! The latest news is that NGIS are no longer involved with Unigine or the Unigine engine!! This from the NGIS website dated 24 Jan 2016- “If you’ve been on our website “Home Page” you may have noticed a few changes with the most noticeable being no indication of UNIGINE. Shocker… I know, but things happen and the writing on the wall appeared sometime late November and concluded last week with both NGiS and UNIGINE going their separate ways. (NDA prevents me from going into details… so… please don’t ask and don’t speculate.)”. ——————- “Shocker indeed!” So all those… Read more »

Unigine (the engine behind the featured sim demo that covers the LA area) is light years more advanced, capable and modern than MS ESP either the one used by MS or finetuned by LM… Capability is in its real time rendering power of details going from grass to a landscape seen from thousands of feet including real time time and weather changes (without the painful load time of FS). However not sure that Unigine features a round planet that is the basic requirement for a simulator ala FS or XP… Is that impossible to do with Unigine ? Not sure,… Read more »

Thanks Clav. That’s an interesting analyses on engines. It’s become a bit of a standing joke within the flight-sim community about the likelihood of NGIS ever producing the goods. Even the few members who post on the NGIS forum have joined in the joke, with one member saying that they should have T-shirts printed with the sim release date as XXXX. Even the man behind this project, Stephen Borick, is quoted on his forum recently as saying “…we are in the very early stage of the project so honestly we have no idea when we will be able to release… Read more »

We’re actually doing much more than just “test the water”… we’re actually making progress where there has been none for the past 10 years or so. In fact… if you knew what I knew, you’d probably be standing on the sidelines cheering NGiS on. Unfortunately we’ve got to take the hits that comes from not being able to disclose information that could make it easy for anyone with deeper pockets and more clout to run with it, and yep… NGiS doesn’t want that to happen… go figure… Meanwhile… we’ll take the hits… and when the proof is in the pudding… Read more »

“Round planet” is irrelevant (notwithstanding the fact the earth isn’t round…). Conversions from WGS84 lat/long as is used in aviation (and pretty much every other geo-located system) to orthogonal X/Y/Z as used in pretty much any 3D software is well understood. The reason they (he — Borick) aren’t using Unigine is more likely because Unigine isn’t free and Borick isn’t willing to invest any money in the project. I suspect Borick will continue leading along 3D engine company after company into thinking they might make a sale, then after each bows out when they realize Borick has no money, there… Read more »

Your absolutely right… UNIGINE isn’t free, but just out of curiosity, where did you find information that Borick isn’t willing to invest any money in the project?

Oh… speculation… the forming of a theory or conjecture without firm evidence.
