Hello guys. The old feature request for this was outdated and had no votes, so I contacted a mod and was able to remake it!
What is it?
This feature would allow VA owners to submit a livery design to the devs and have it implemented into the game.
How would it work?
Here’s a possible system for this feature.
In order to have its own custom livery, the VA must be IFVARB approved and have at least 10 active pilots. The staff of the VA would then design a livery and submit it to developers. When the developers have approved the livery, it would be “painted” on to a maximum of 7 aircraft that the VA chooses. The VA could also choose a maximum of 2 special liveries.
In order to access these airplanes, pilots would have to enter a password set by the VA before flying. This would prevent cloning and trolling. The pilot would also have to be at least grade 3 with a working IF Pro account.
How do we get it?
You. Smash that vote button! We need this in IF, it would make the VA experience so much greater!
I like the idea but don’t agree with almost anything you put in the “how it would work” portion regarding restrictions of who could use the livery, how many aircraft they are on or the pilot requirement.
VAs typically try to resemble the actual airline they are trying to replicate as much as possible. Even if this were a thing, I don’t believe any VAs would want to do this. Maybe a VO? Like an IFATC livery? Other than that I don’t see any practical demand for this feature.
Maybe, but there are successful made up VAs. Such as Global Airtours, who I fly for. also the reason IRL VAs are more popular is because it is more realistic to fly for them because people don’t like flying generic planes. This would change that.
But IRL things like that don’t happen. IF is a simulator. Why would there be ghosting? People can fly an American 777 anywhere they want and it doesn’t hurt anyone. For example IF doesn’t have the Fiji A359. I really want it for real routes but your idea suggest only Fiji VA people would get it. I don’t see how the whole community getting another livery would hurt anything. Whenever IF adds a livery it doesn’t cause problems
