As said before, I tried out the Unreal-Engine and was quite astomished what you can make with it. For the time beeing I decided to change tools and restart the making of Aklandas Fantasy Simulator with UE4. This may at first seem like a drawback, but the gains are simply overhelming. If it would just be for graphics I would not change so easily, but I also get a massive boost in performance, which was my main issue with the simulator as its older version.
As some of you have asked for a download of the new Simulator I quickly put together a really rough Pre-ALPHA and included some EULA and Limitation of Liability. This version does NOT include map-making (so I wouldn´t call it a real simulator), but just shows the enhanced map and the better performance - and of course you will be able to mount a dragon!
But be warned: The steering of the dragon is far from perfect, the physics is a mess, the landing often doesn´t work and regardless of all these bugs the download-file is about 1.8GB and the download is slow and ...
I think you got the picture!
For those of you who want be stoped by all this and those who want to ride the dragon NOW, here it is! Just download, let your antivirus run on the downloaded file, unzipp and click on the "AFS001.exe" file:

Drive your Dragon with keys W-A-S.
When in Air flap with "W" and steer with rightClick+mouse.
Escape software with key ESC.
Beware: Also the steering is alpha!
1. Crushing will probably make a new start impossible.
2. Horizontal speed will decrease if you don´t flap and if you stear to high. You might even move backwards.
3. Lots of other, mentionable and not mentionable bugs!!
