  1. Bridge Team: Ship Simulator aims to provide commercial level simulation accuracy in a consumer product sold on Steam, making it in the category of "Serious Game". That said, we've received a couple of questions regarding how pricing would work, and whether customers could use it in a commercial setting. To answer your questions: the Consumer Edition sold on Steam and the Commercial Edition are nearly identical. Which means, the accurate features such as wind/tide effects, a fully simulated radar with EBL/VRM/Trails, or autopilot with waypoints/heading control/speed control -- these are a
  2. As announced at the London Startup Fair, we are currently working full swing on Bridge Team: Ship Simulator. Bridge Team is a ship navigation simulator to build off the existing Ship Simulator series. We are not affiliated with the original developers in any way; however, we recognize that a new ship sim is long overdue and many of us at Forest Studio have either owned the previous ship sim titles before, or have great interests in maritime simulation. Hence, we set to work on our own, and we have ambitions to release a Steam Early Access version this year. You may check out our tr
  3. I've just realized that members are not able to download the Test Connection within this forum. This is my oversight with the permissions; apologies to those of you who were trying to download this for the inconvenience. This has now been fixed. You must sign-in in order to download the test files. Cheers,

    How it works?

    Hey, Thanks for your purchase. Please have port 32000 forwarded for the person who is taking control. Have this same person go to whatsmyip.org and grab that public IP. Afterwards, have the person taking control launch the Server window, and the person with the simulator (receiving control) launch the Client window. Ensure the server is started, and then on the client, go ahead and follow the steps written on the client window (the step 1, step 2, etc.) If you have any further questions, feel free to let us know, or if you prefer a member of our team to walk you through the pr
  5. Hi all, If you would like to test and see if you and your partner can establish a connection to use SkyShare before purchasing, I've built server and client test files for you to run. They are command line console programs that simply just connect to each other - you can use this to see if you will be able to successfully connect to your partner, or if there is something blocking your connection (e.g. antivirus / firewall). They are attached to this forum post. Download and run - that's it! Before running the program(s) -- ensure whomever is running the server has port 32000 f
  6. Hi all, We've tracked the installer issue down to only customers with MS Store or XBox GamePass copies having this issue; my entire company staff and I run the Steam version, hence, we never caught this issue when testing. If you are affected by this issue, please open a support ticket with us. I have authorized those handling Support to distribute copies of a .zip file to you, which contains all of the binaries / .exe files for SkyShare for a manual installation (your Support Tech will show you how, just unzip to desktop or any folder you want). Appreciate everyone's patience
  7. Interesting, alright. When I am back home, I will reach out to you via DM and let's schedule a time so you can come on our corporate Discord to address this issue further. At the very worst, if we can't get the installer to work, I'll just drop you a .zip version of SkyShare so you can manually install it. Just make sure you manually uninstall it when we push an update.
  8. This looks like something with the simMarket installer not detecting a specific file in your system. Can you reach out to simMarket's support at: https://secure.simmarket.com/customerservice.php And keep us posted, in case there is something also required on our end. Thanks,
  9. With SkyShare being released, we are already looking at the horizon ahead for all of us here at Forest Studio. We have ongoing projects, including one that isn't MSFS-related, but... we'll talk about that at another time 😁 For SkyShare, our plans are: Linux and macOS support for SkyShare Server (co-pilot, who doesn't need the sim installed) Note - the Client is the SDK-based window that controls the aircraft after receiving input, so that cannot be ported. Only the Server can. Support for multiple throttles Rudder support Yoke support -- currently in
  10. RELEASED! It's live! Go check it out now! Link here: https://secure.simmarket.com/forest-studio-skyshare-shared-cockpit-controls.phtml Thank you everyone for your support! It means so much to all of us at Forest Studio. All the messages / emails about how you're looking forward to the release -- thank you! Just a bit more waiting and you'll have this in your hands very soon!
  11. Starting this thread to post some preview screenshots as we go along up to release. Here is the first one, with me acting as the copilot with the SkyShare Server, utilizing Skype's screensharing function.
  12. UPDATE: We've had some unseen circumstances that have resulted in a delay of release. We rather not rush, than deliver a rushed job, and we appreciate everyone's understanding. We will be releasing on: Wednesday August 19, 2020 at 2:00pm Pacific Standard Time
  13. Update: please see release date confirmation here -
  14. Hey all, Thank you so much for all the support we've received, especially by DM and my email, of SkyShare and our new startup, Forest Studio. There was a bit of confusion about SkyShare's release date, so I'll confirm it -- we are currently aiming to release this Tuesday August 18, 2020 -- the same day as MSFS, so you can hop right into the simulator with your friends right away. Disclaimer: since our announcement last night / this morning, we've received a handful of you offering to help test with your hardware -- in an unlikely event, there is a possibility this may introduc
  15. Have you ever seen your friends with a new addon and wondered to yourself how it handles? Have you ever wanted to fly with your friends or take control of their aircraft during VFR while they are AFK? SkyShare is a shared cockpit controls addon developed for Microsoft Flight Simulator. (Update, August 13, 2020: Pricing released -- SkyShare will be available for $12.99 USD) SkyShare allows you to connect to your partner and take controls of their yoke and throttle. Fly any addon / aircraft! You don't even need Microsoft Flight Simulator installed... just have the SkyShare windo
