Question for Southwest Airlines Classic Downloaders

Recommended Posts

Captains,I noted that the Southwest Airlines Classic livery available on our download server has a rating of 2.5 stars while the other four available liveries have ratings of 5.0. As the artist responsible for this livery, I'm curious as to what it is about this particular paint that has earned it this rating. If you've rated this livery less than 5 can you please let me know what leads you to this rating. I'd love to have a chance to address any concerns you have about this one.Thanks.

Pete,I for one find nothing wrong with the Southwest Classic livery. I put my rating of 5 in there to help you out :) Are you going to do any of the special liveries for Southwest?

Jeff,thanks for the rating. My real reason for the posting is not to raise the rating but to determine what if anything is incorrect that earns this livery a lower rating. As for additional SWA liveries, there are a slew of them waiting to get on the server. Most of the 700 based SWA liveries are done and a few 400/500 series liveries have been applied to the 600/700 and will also be made available.

My guess is that people just like the 'other' southwest paint better for aesthetic reasons. I for one LOVE your classic. Dresses the new bird up just right!sg

I can see nothing wrong with the paint at all that would warrant a 2.5 rating.Perhaps it was a booboo? I know I didn't vote when I downloaded it - I will return and do so - perhaps that would help.

I second the "booboo" option! :)I'm having a hard time understanding why any of your planes deserve anything less that full score. You've done a lot of repaints on the PMDG airpark and all have been top notch!CheersAndy

I think people might be rating based on much they like the aesthetics of the livery, rather than the quality/completness of the repaint. Please don't do this folks - even if the livery is ugly as sin on the real airplane, you should rate it based on how accurately it's reproduced for the NG!!

Maybe some bored people with all the holidays just rated all planes 1 a few times?
