Aerofly FS 2 needs to grow who agrees?

  • Could you please :saint: make a converter (TTX file viewer/converter) that will allow for editing of cloud textures , and all other textures inside of Aerofly 2?

    Currently, only a limited amount of textures can be edited released in your SDK.

    By doing this many people would start developing for your 8) very well VR performing sim. The fact that is VR is the future and Aerofly FS2 still has a great chance to grow in big ways if developers are allowed to create easily for this sim . Lately ,Microsoft Flight sim 2020 is very popular which will lead to fall in interest in other sims unless they are willing to do as MSFS has done allowing for easy editing to make new addons for their sim. The more developers make addons for your sim the more popular the sim becomes and in return the future gets better for that sim.
    Who else agrees this will help growth of this sim?:)

  • Hi , I agree the basic FS2 version is rather poor, especially if you are living in Europe. On the other hand there are already quite some good tools around when you start looking around :-) Especially the Aeroscenery tool is great ! It allows you to create your own texture based on bing or google maps with different resolutions.


    Secondly, you can create your own elevation maps using geoconvert which is part of the SDK tools.


    Last but not least you can get access to quite some ready made airports using the following link: https://www.fscloudport.com

    I recently gathered/created most data for Belgium. It makes already quite a difference. I will share it the coming weeks.


    Cheers,

    Stefan (also new to FS2)

  • Eh. As much of a fan as I am of the sims potential, honestly i've have never seen much evidence Ipacs were ever actually seriously interested in growth.

  • The truth of the matter almost all sims without addons are dull.

    If we were given the option to edit the TTX files developers could make sky addons, airport ground and other items .

    Maybe even add reflective ness to water areas since all they would need to do is add an effect to the texture as glass on buildings or windows as it displays already in the sim now.

    When many come together anything is possible.

  • What makes me really wonder is, that Aerofly FS is still on the market (since 2012), despite all the boringness this sim offers after the first (and mabybe second ;) ) excitement has gone.


    So, there must be some growth, otherwise this sim has disappeared in subsidence already.


    Don't get me wrong, I really wish IPACS all the best, and wish that this sim will last for the next 100 years at least. But I don't count on Aerofly anymore, no more expectations from my side !!!!


    If the team brings some something new, maybe a new aricraft/helicopter, or a new feature they've promised years after years after years ago, yea, it's fine and I'll have a quick look.


    If not: " I don't give a damn " !


    So long and farewell, Aerofly :thumbup:

  • Aerofly, has been open minded releasing a helicopter,SDK and still here for support.

    That is why I hope they hear what people are saying and allow for the access to the sims textures.

    The feeling of true scale speed on approach before touch down or any other aspect of flying can not be beat in the flight sim world at this present time.

    With their background in true aero dynamic physics learned most likely due to the RC sim.

    Even though this sim is not new it just needs some polish and more users.
