Add Concorde airplane
Hey, there unfortunately IF will not add the concorde see the staff response below but if you ever want to see a new aircraft added to IF be sure to check out #features :)
A note about Concorde
One of our top requests as you can see from the stats is the legendary Concorde. We are aware of this airplane’s iconic place in aviation history and we know it would indeed be an interesting and challenging addition to Infinite Flight. However, we develop all of our aircraft in-house. Due to the sheer number of developer and 3D artist hours that would be required to build the Concorde at the level of detail you have come to expect from us, we have removed this aircraft from consideration for the time being.
This wasn’t an easy decision for us since we understand it’s highly requested. To give a bit of context here, part of our in-house discussion was around the complexity of the back aircraft engineer panel. We can all agree that a static image of the panel wouldn’t be up to current standards. The next step is to decide what instruments are functional and here is the important part: even if they don’t move, they still have to be modeled, named, and mapped. All of this takes a lot of time, and we’re at a level now where we won’t be shipping low-resolution textures. Concorde may make an appearance in the future, but for now, we’re putting this feature request on pause. We will close the feature request so that votes can be used on other features. If in the future we feel our aircraft process is at a point where Concorde is feasible, we will reopen.
Check out this by the IF team. Feel free to vote for Aircraft you want in #features though!
I think something like the 737 Max or the NEOs would be a nice addition.
Hey guys, let’s keep aircraft discussions to their respective threads. Thanks :)
