Hi there! I know this topic would’ve suited the features category better but unfortunately I can’t post there yet due to my trust level most probably.
I lack programming skills but I have a very good lead on an add-on that could fulfill the wishes of realism enthusiasts that use IF.
IF Career could be an app or an in-game add-on that would come up in the pause menu (right next to Load and Calibrate), recording a set of info regarding the upcoming flight and registrating it as a task.
This would address Cargo & Passenger operations only.
Basically, after choosing a region and an aircraft - exclusively in pilot live mode - the user would activate this add-on telling them that they have a load of 20 pax and that they have to fly it from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur with a minimum flight time of 20 minutes.
The system would record a set of data regarding what the user is doing - speed, time, load, vertical speeds and so on and at the end the app or add-on would issue a report grading the user.
At the end of the flight, should they respect requirements, users would get XP points.
Later on, when IF will add engine start and shutdown or doors functions, the system could count those factors in too.
I know that the “careers” concept may have come up in the past but I am willing to actually think this concept through and make it real.
Let me know what you think and contact me in case you consider that we could create something interesting out of it, together!
