OpenSource Livery Templates

I’m still hoping for this to happen but it might happen BUT…since next update is about new liveries on each compatible aircraft looks like we might have to do that too as it could be close

Well we have a regulatory bodies here for ATC, Airport Editing and VAs, we can just add one for liveries.

Totally agree with you! We most probably going to need to wait for Project Metal in order to have such a feature, but I’m not giving up, and I’m waiting it with all of my heart!
Regarding what you said at first, I did not mean that at all, sorry! I just wanted to say that it do not holds quite a priority at this time, because the game doesn’t have the software needed, but with Project Metal, this thing may be posible!☺️

I’m going to ‘‘revive’’ this, as I really want to add our custom liveries, let’s go :D

Just an idea…

Have custom liveries usable in solo mode only. That way they can be stored locally on the device and not interfere with other users experiences. And maybe have a small number of very high quality user created liveries that are approved by staff and then implemented for use in online mode.

I’m not any kinda developer so this probably wouldn’t work.

Clearing a vote for this, I had the same idea a long time ago but don’t know why didn’t I look for the topic here!

I would love to see this be implemented!
I think the most practical way would be a category on the IFC for user liveries, where the files could be uploaded for iOS/android. With that a specific replacement livery would be selected to depict the closest ingame livery to the custom one (i.e someone makes a Delta Skyteam 738, it would appear as a standard DL 738 to anyone who doesn’t have it downloaded)
In addition, an IF sanctioned group, similar to the IFAET could be created to internally approve liveries and provide support. And then all liveries produced and approved would be released to the IFC for public download. However as a caveat a user may create a livery for personal use that would not be allowed to be shared via IFC, but would be only used privately, or via direct sharing between users ( a couple of examples being custom personal liveries, low quality reproductions, fictional VA’s, or certain copyrighted liveries)

This would obviously take a lot of work to implement, but it would really open up new possibilities and help further diversify the portfolio of liveries in Infinite Flight.

I don’t have a technical opinion on the subject, that’s why I’m wondering why it’s so expensive to do this ?
What are the differences with IFAET ? airports take data and it’s a cost too.
If the liveries are so voluminous, Is it possible with the metar project to optimize size even more ?

I think the key is to be able to only download the liveries you want, reducing the amount of liveries that need to be rendered on the user-end

Liveries are becoming really annoying for us and for devs, we need some kind of solution, many users are stopping playing IF, and some of them because of the liveries, many countries have really outdated or missing liveries such as Iberia, Aeromexico, Avianca, Tam, LATAM, LAN, Copa, Transavia, ETC.

We really need them.

Completely agree, it would be super good, for example in my case that I am from Colombia, we only have Avianca, we would love to have Viva Air, Wingo and among others. I know about design and I would like to support the development of Liveries, they should at least share the aircraft templates with us and we start with the creation and then they approve them and then add them.

With this we would help each other a lot: Satisfying the user and helping you in the work of creating liveries. Think about it, it would be a good idea.

Bumping this topic, we need this feature! I tried editing an Air Transat A321, it isn’t the best, but I’m sure with practice, we could all make custom liveries!

This flight sim will become just like RFS quality wise. In RFS, lots of people make and add liveries and most of them look absolutely horrible. I like whats happening currently, devs make high quality liveries instead of a million community contributed ones.

What do you think curently about the quality of airports (surface, taxiways, gates…) ?
Because they are made by contributors from IFAET. We can’t compare at all RFS and IF.
I’m in favor of IF Livery Editor Team. Many liveries are missing.

That’s a special team of people doing the airports and stuff like that. In the topic, there wasn’t a mention of a special team of IFC members doing it. Plus, IFAET members would have been selected if they can model airports well so having a bad airport is unlikely.

@Dr3ambigg3r just to think if GAF had their own livery.

Well they sure do miss a few things as well 😅

Those are small mistakes. If you have played RFS, you will know how bad most liveries are.

But isn’t IF’s goal to be realistic as possible? Yes small mistakes, but the KLM Orange Pride one sure does get on my nerves.
