Hello everyone. Please read it’s not 3D building related.
I was on a flight - LFPG / FMCZ - and thought it’d cool : you have to wait for the passengers to be boarded, tanks to be fuelled and cargo to be loaded.
Time of completion will be chosen by the player or skippable.
What do you think?
Not bad idea but as I am bit older person. I would like to see improvements on aircraft performance, handling, cockpit, navigation, simulating engine fails, navigation, cabin decompression…etc. yours good idea but dev won’t have time for everything. Either we get bling bling bells and whistles or real flight simulator
I like where you’re going with this. Hopefully, this topic isn’t a duplicate. Allow me to ask, do you mean perhaps a feature that can suggest realistic load factors/fuel load/passenger amount before your flight? I think that would be useful :)
I love this idea, even though it will just be a “virtual information” that comes up, it will make a sense of purpose during those awkward “so, what now, just exit…just like that?” iddle moments after parking to gate - after a hard earned landing. So “lonely” and sad.
Plus, if it becomes a procedure (that you can choose) it’ll remind some of us (er…me, lol) that your plane do have passengers and cargo weight to consider, and do need gas to run on - it’ll be great like in real life to have pax and cargo weight assigned at random by IF and that information pops up for the pilot. Exciting pre-flight calculations and virtual profesionalism awaits.
Allow me to elaborate: I meant maybe information assigned to you depending on route and aircraft and not just the load factor we already have implicated on the sim. For example: “Suggested for Boeing 767-300, RJAA-RPLL: 115 pax., x amount of fuel, etc.”
Apologies if my wording threw you off earlier or if this isn’t what they meant at all.
I like the idea, but feel it a bit redundant as it is just a timer as people board. It would have to be optional as in real life boarding can easily take 30 minutes. Most people don’t want to be waiting that amount of time. Even though I try to fly realistically I often don’t have enough time to sit around for half an hour for everyone to get on.
I can see the appeal if we had 3D ground vehicles etc, but unfortunately we don’t have that, and it most likely won’t be coming soon.
