Culture and tourism

Probably should add the 3D building…, but it will be hard to get ATC accent for every country.
I liked your idea tho. :)

It’s not required :)

The voices we have now are provided by IOS and Android so they have no control over it. As for the radio with music it can lead to a lot of copyright stuff. Plus, airplanes aren’t cars. Airplanes can’t tune into KIIS FM.

most of the time people create a feature because they want it in game, its only a suggestion :)

Certainly a great idea! It would help boost the realism, but it would probably require lots of research.

Great idea. I hope to see some of this soon!

You see that in real live you do not have radios in the planes, they would interfer with the comms between the pilots with the ATC


Anyways, the idea of improving the cultural inmersion is great

Meh, sure I guess I like what your saying, to incorporate the feeling of culture because that will make travel more interesting… definitely something to go more in-depth about, though it will require effort to implement what you are saying…

yes also other feature request like cars, boats, writings. On buildings you can see the writings in different languages, different types of car, boat.

WoAh, that involves a lot of detailing to implement that! IF won’t be capable to do that yet!

You can actually already do this with some accents. But IF uses the TTS voices provided by Apple and
Google which means they can’t edit the accents. It would be noce though!

Please, no. This is a flight simulator, you can’t listen to music in the flight deck. Well, actually you can but you most certainly shouldn’t.

I don’t think there’s a need for so many negative comments! I personally think it’s a great idea! However I’m not sure how/when/if it would be added.

If you don’t like some features, eg. The radio, then don’t use it 🤷‍♂️

It’s a unique feature request, it’s good to have people thinking outside the box :)

That’s assuming you can turn it off. It is a good idea, maybe

Great ideas! I personally think that even more improvements to the maps will greatly improve cultural immersion. Adding boundaries to maps has already done much of the work. The next step in my opinion would be to implement terrain maps, night lights, and maybe for it to point out some interesting places such as famous national parks, wonders of the world, etc.

AI traffic can also assist in cultural immersion. For instance, heavies at JFK would imply that New York is a massive globalised city, whereas small prop planes at Lukla reflect the mountaneous terrain nearby. More liveries will also go a long way to help.

Also, the definition of cultural immersion can vary from person to person. For me, it is the geography the people have inherited (given all of us are AvGeeks so this might be the same for most of us), and so I favour better maps and map depth (terrain, satellite, etc.) over music (still important but it’s something you can listen off Spotify).

I think it is safe to say we will be seeing more of these developments come through in the coming years. It is inevitable. Thanks for the post.

Hi. Feature requests can only have one request per post. Thanks!
