[July 2023 update]
Now that my CYYJ Victoria is released, I’m once again looking for feedback on what airport to do next. Please let me know if you are aware of other developers working on Canadian airports, what is expected to release soon, what is missing, and cast your vote for what you would like to see next. I Would like to identify airport targets that would be in demand, that are either not done or being worked on by anyone else, or exists in much inferior quality - and definitely not anything that’s already available on MSFS Marketplace. I prefer International/Regional airports that have jetways and can accept at least smaller airliners like 737 or ATR42 etc. Let me know what you think…
BTW I’m also open to the idea of making a US airport, provided nobody has done it yet, especially if it’s scheduled flights to Canada.
I’m open to suggestions regarding what are the most demanded airports that have not been done by anyone else and are not in the development currently by anyone, or are available in poor enough quality to be largely ignored. Naturally I would like to avoid unnecessary competition with other fine scenery developers by working on the same area, but rather work towards covering more Canadian airports instead, so we all win.
I was going to proceed with work on CYQB next, however a fair quality freeware was just released this month that clearly uses on-location photos for texturing, which I don’t have. So I don’t hitnk it’s worth it to do CYQB now as I may not be ablt to offer a large enough gap in quality to warrant the asking price.
I’m sure some of you are in the loop of who’s developing what - I’d appreciate any advice. I will contact some developers directly, but I’d like to narrow down my options before I do.
Some options I am considering:
- CYYT St. John’s
- CYYC Calgary
- CYAM Sault Ste. Marie
- CYWG Winnipeg
- CYEG Edmonton
- CYXX Abbotsford
- CYXE Saskatoon
- CYQT Thunder Bay
I haven’t thoroughly checked if they are available from someone, but on the first glance they weren’t available from most respected developers. Anyway, let me know what you think!
