This is my very first posting here. I’ve only recently installed Infinite Flight on my iPad and I’ve been having a great time flying around. I know that 3D airports are relatively brand new in the sim. I was wondering if the Infinite Flight development team is open to 3rd party content?
I won’t call myself a professional 3D designer. But I do have a 3D file for Bangalore’s Kempegowda International Airport. I designed it in SketchUp. It is textured with default materials just to show a more complete pic. The terminal design is fairly accurate. Textures are generic. Would this be of any use to the development team? If so I am more than happy to do more airports in India.
Wow you have some fantastic skills, as of now the devs won’t be taking any 3rd party content (they will work on 3D buildings internally only). The sketches look incredible so well done, you could save them for later when maybe the devs accept designs made by community members, though do note we are not sure if this is likely to happen. :)
Not sure if the IF team can do anything with that model but having been to VOBL so many times can say that looks so accurate and amazing! Would love to have it in the sim. But again no clue if devs can do anything with it.
Thank you. My offer for this CAD work still stands and if anyone at Infinite Flight wants to use it. I am more than happy to hand over the CAD work. Default textures used for other Infinite Flight 3D airports can be used too.
As mentioned in my opening post, I’ve used SketchUp for these. I’m unsure as to whether models designed in SketchUp can be used in Infinite Flight. But I have done a few models for people for FSX in the past.
I am more than happy to do the 3D design work for other airports as well. My main interests will be in airports I have a personal connection with like Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Mangalore, Mysore, Hubli, Chennai and Kolkata. But always happy to do more.
I feel at the moment Infinite Flight will continue with more basic modelled structures and specific major landmarks at airports like at SFO, LAX and LHR. Hopefully in the longer future your great work may make it into the game dependent on its 3rd party initiative, I’d definitely support you if it does!
Amazing model! I hope for you that IF are looking for some more 3d devs, you would make a great addition to the team.
As far as I know, in the current release, the 3d buildings don’t support rounded terminals, like Bangalore’s wave-shaped terminal.
Awesome work once again!
Thanks, and thank you for that unusual bit of information. I was not aware about the odd shaped buildings as being a problem. I hope this is something that can be changed in future as Dubai will be the next on my radar then for a more accurate terminal building.
Though in comparison, Bangalore’s terminal is still box like with only the canopy being a wave.
