You’re taking me way off topic. My point was, that I would like to see IF have a higher ratio of designers to developers. Something, that is clearly very low at the moment, as the game design doesn’t follow almost any of the basic design rules—for example, very relevant usability GUIDELINES (🇺🇸 for Captain America 🇺🇸). You started it.
For me as a designer, the forum and IFATC just aren’t enough.🚦It’s like reading the traffic rules, after you’ve driven a car for the last 3 months without knowing anything about driving. However, it is super useful if you are serious about IF, like all of us in this topic are. But the game mechanics don’t influence a good behaviour or following of the rules in the GAME, of those who simply don’t know, until a controller sends them “Check help pages”.
Tell me, how many people you think first watched and read all the #tutorials, trained offline for weeks, and then followed every instruction, when they started flying online ✈️ and learned everything about ATC, and passed the IFATC tests, so they can control the towers, without compromising others experience?
Well, I’m one of them. Just defending myself here against the distinguished knights and lords with no vision and guidelines that clearly don’t work perfectly in a PAID GAME (I’m talking about the server with 90% of the players, the one this topic is about, kinda relevant since they’re the ones financing IF, not talking about the forum anymore btw).
I love your passion for aviation and insults, but it would be so much more useful if you used it in KLAX TS1, instead of attacking those who actually do and try their best. I know Americans are very good at war and killing people, and not just in the US, but this is a peaceful game, so the argument is irrelevant for me.
❤️ Just gonna throw in this 22 year old design article for your inspiration:
PM me to request ATC on TS1.
Maybe time to start OpenIFATC @Alex_Kellagher? Public Slack group? I love your idea.
