Airline fleet modding updates in 1.0-14

Hi,

Modding will have two updates in update 1.0-14.

First a "isSpecial":true variable that can be added to liveryData.json indicating that a livery is rare and should not spawn as frequently as the standard livery, current ratio is 33% (might be adjusted later on). This is only applicable if the airline has a multiple liveries of the same aircraft type.

Secondly a "fleetCount":[] variable can be added to the mod.json file for each airline. This array of ints must be exact same length as the fleet type array otherwise it will default to 1 for each aircraft type. This will make aircraft types with a higher count spawn more frequently. Below airline has one A319, two A320 etc. Note that indexes must match!

   "fleet":[
      "A319",
      "A320",
      "A321"
   ],
   "fleetCount":[
      "1",
      "2",
      "3"
   ],

Just so you know, existing mods will not be affected so this is completely optional.

Let me know if any questions :slight_smile:

If somehow this topic gets lost tomorrow I can’t foresee the chaos that is going to happen so for the sake of this community let’s hope :slight_smile:

A surprise, but a welcome one to be sure!

Just a quick question: with regards to fleetCount, is it a ratio or a cap? As in, if there is only one aircraft type (say, a Cessna 206) and fleetCount is set at 1, does it mean it’ll always spawn flight requests for Cessna 206s, or does it mean we can only have 1 Cessna 206 flight planned / offered to us?

my question is how are you guys so awesome! :heart: :clap:

It is a ratio between the aircraft types. So if you have two aircraft types with 1 and 10 fleet count it will spawn the second aircraft type 10 times more often than the first. I hope that makes sense. :slight_smile:
