Excellent work! Hope you get time to do the 737 and A320.
Psst thats supposed to be a secret 😀
What kind of features would you like to see in the A320 and B737?
I mean the 737 already has a lot of switches in the overhead, would you like as many in the A320, too?
re: features for the 737/747 A320
Enable the Idle cutoff levers/switches to kill the engines, and facilitate engine startup, would be very nice.
Thanks for the excellent work!
Sadly I can’t shut down the turbo-fan engines yet, but it will come with the default Aerofly FS 2 eventually I think
Excellent mod! Keep the Great work!!!
Nice work, is this the first AFS2 addon? 🙂
I think so, yes.
Technically its not an add-on its a modification.
Hi. Just purchased FS2 and think it’s great with VR. Can you tell me if FS 1 aircraft downloads work on FS2 please? Thank you.
No they don’t work for the Aerofly FS 2. There are quite a number of changes in the aircraft definition files as well as the aircraft 3D model and textures between the FS 1 and the FS 2. Currently there doesn’t seem to be that much demand for custom Aerofly FS 2 aircraft, otherwise a lot more people would have contacted me by now. So I better put my time into improving the existing default aircraft where a lot more users can profit from.
Ok. Thanks. Disappointing though.
Well Aerofly FS 2 aircraft are more complex also in respect to the 3D models and textures, that’s why there are new file formats. Downward compatibility would slow the Aerofly down, that’s one reason why its faster than its competitors. Best is to have one version that works and just change the conent a little bit to make it work in the new version. Its not that much work to export the 3D model and textures again and make a few changes to the aircraft definition.
Thanks for your reply again. Are there any helicopters likely to appear for FS2 soon.
Well we have seen screenshots of the Robinson R22 from IPACS quite some time ago and according to an interview they gave (don’t have the link anymore) they are definitely very interested in that field but currently not as many users are interested, sadly. And I can’t release the Hughes for the FS 2 because I don’t have the original 3D model files… :/
Hey there, awesome to see mods already coming out!
I have a few questions on .ttx files. I’ve mapped custom texures on other games through .bmp files.
Usually I know the specific size that those are supposed to be. Would there be a place I could find that for aircraft in FS2?
Would the af5-makemap tool work with FS2? I believe it came from an older game right?
I can get the art side nailed down but putting it all together will be a major pain for me lol. Any ideas/input?
Hello and sorry for the late reply (Christmas…)
No, the af5-makemap only works for the Aerofly RC 5, RC 7 and Aerofly FS 1 but not FS 2.
But you might want to check out the Aerofly FS 2 SDK which has just been released: https://www.aerofly.com/aerofly_fs_2/sdk/
I don’t know if its possible to create replacement textures yet…
They should make this for iOS do they?
I’m afraid I can’t though, there is no way to inject new aircraft setups into the mobile devices afaik. And you wouldn’t be able to start or stop the engine anyway at this time on mobile.
Thanks, the handling is great.
