Dear Community members,
I would like to propose an idea of tutorial when you just join the game. As it is now, there is a tutorials section which will redirect you to the forum or YouTube channel. This is great, however, some pilot tend to ignore it and just fly as they want without proper knowledge or just don’t see it.
So the idea is that when you download the game and before you can make your first flight, there will be an interactive tutorial like the one you can see in X-Plane game for iOS (I guess Android as well). Some areas of the screen will be highlighted, starting with flaps, for example. While others at the same time will be not accessible. It will be shown with help messages. Like “This is throttle. Slide the trigger up in order to increase power. Keep in mind that any value above 100% N1 will damage your engine” and so on. Some basic ATC instructions will be explained as well, such as what “remaining in the pattern” means etc.
This tutorial may be skipped if the user wants (for example, if the app was re-downloaded) or accessed again from the menu somewhere.
It may also be made as a test flight with an instructor with voice or text commands from him. When the message is displayed, the game pauses so that the user can adjust the setting of an aircraft. It may be done in a commercial airlines (ERJ-700) so that maximum amount of features will be shown.
This feature, hopefully, will help to increase the realism of the game so you will see people taking off from the gate more rare.
This is an example of what X-Plane first tutorial looks like. As you can see, all other functions such as throttle are disabled.
Hope you will like it and if you do, go ahead and click a button in the top left corner:)
