AFSIK not a single new static aircraft has been introduced since day 1 of Aerofly FS2. We have a mix of really poor models and really outstanding models which leads one to believe the pool was created by different developers. After several years of flying around the IPACS airports and seeing the same exact models at every airport is really getting old for me.
I understand that the better models used as XREF items were created using 3DS Max and Cinema4D which are both considered professional tools.
The users have recently been picking up the slack for scenery development, but, there is only so much we can do without some assistance and especially without the professional tools needed for development.
If there was some interest in this by IPACS we could compile a suggested list of aircraft that we see at our local airports. I would hate to see someone spend a day making some new static aircraft and they all end up being models that I have never seen in my local flying area, hence the idea of a suggested list of aircraft. Aircraft also includes some new helicopters.
For instance, wouldn't it be great to be able to create a view like this of an IPACS airport ramp?
