ACEO won't be "ACEO" without real airlines. Since I really want it, I started to search on "how" it could be done.
First of all we know from Airline Design Contest that with some photoshopping, new airlines can be added to game. The thing was finding proper images of aircrafts with liveries from Top view.
Since I have played FSX and IVAO, I know they have huge opportunities. IVAO has at least 6k AI models from Cessnas to A380s all around the world. I just started to work but I managed to get this picture: This is A321 of Orbit Airlines from FSX
Now my question is, how it can be implemented to templates that devs posted on Airline Design Contest? This A321 picture can be used for many other ACEO templates with minimal changes since game is 2D?
Also does anyone still have Airline Design Contest pmd file? I couldn't find it anywhere and I want to do some try-errors
