Development Roadmap

Sailaway is a huge project with a small team but with help from its community we are determined to make the best sailing simulator there is!

During early access it is important to us that we share what we can about features we have in mind or are currently working on, this page will give the community a snapshot of what we are working on and when it is completed.   This roadmap combined with updates on our FORUM and BLOG should help keep players as updated as possible on our journey to the full release.

Builds that include critical bug fixes will be released more regularly than builds with major feature additions.


Last update: 10th October 2017
