What do you think of a payware Fouga Magister?

Recommended Posts

I think this is one iconic, bad-&@($* aircraft. I really think it deserves a HIGH QUALITY payware. What do you think? :)

Aha. Didn't know that. Can it be edited? I just dug it up and put it here. We obviously do not have intentions to infringe anyone's copyright. May Jim or any other mod take care of this? have my apologies.

I tried it. It's very outdated, well freeware quality. Definitely not up to modern standards and definitely not as enjoyable as a good payware.

Hmm, well if you reject to the idea, it will be a long waiting. Hopefully, others think differently. Perhaps one of the devs would take it as their next project. I'm sure a lot of people would love to get a high quality version. The freeware has a 2d cockpit, well 3d, but the entire panel is just one low quality photoreal texture and it looks awful, so how can you say it's "good enough"? heh..

It's good enough because people have spent their spare time making it without ever expecting monetary compensation. It could have even lower resolution textures and it would still be good enough. Do you understand what I'm saying here?!

On a personal note, I think this airplane is of very good quality. You usually don't get photoreal with western freeware.

Mr. Bjoren, I understand perfectly what you mean, but that's not the point of the discussion. There's freeware and there's payware. Only in VERY rare occasions a freeware is as good (or better) than the payware. In this occasion, the freeware will definitely not surpass or equal a 2014+ payware. Also, the tone in your posts is harsh for no reason.

Disagree. Most Russian freeware is better than tons of payware...

The problem you are up against is a fairly basic one. While you obviously like this plane that does not necessarily mean that enough of the payware buyers out there are going to agree with you to make it worth a developer's time to build one. The amount of time and effort required to research and build a high-end model has to be balanced against how well that model will do in sales. You might get lucky and someone will do a reasonable rendition for a reasonable price, but I somehow doubt you will see any of the big names making one.

 

Milviz would be your best chance given their lean toward military aircraft and reputation for quality, but I would not be holding my breath on that possibility.

You guys are off-topic. I only asked if there's a demand for it or not. It's a simple question.. I'm not looking for lecturing on the scale of development because I'm already educated on that. :)

 

With that said, I appreciate your replies.

No demand here. I had a (payware I think) version for FS9/FS2002, but didn't fly it to often.

 

Still with so many aircraft being done over and over, would be a nice change of pace.

Just a failure to understand why people want payware offering after payware offering for a freaking flight simulator, nothing more. Just for a few 3D switches, bump maps and some underused features.

Especially since I very much doubt that people ever fly the very last $ of value out of any payware model (except the PMDG or Q400 crowd maybe).

 

But alright, back on topic. As Robert said, Milviz could maybe do one someday.
