A request / Rant
Bob Bobface posted a topic in General DiscussionHello everyone. This post is mainly aimed at livery makers. I recently purchased the IXEG 737-300, and was at first pleased by the amount of liveries people have made for it. However, when I dug deeper I found that very few of my favorite liveries have actually been made. What frustrated me further was the amount of fictional liveries that were made. I may be alone in this opinion, but i have a flight sim for realism purposes, and it might just be me but flying in a plane with a fictional livery seems to just take something away from the whole experience. I appreciate that some fictional liveries are nice looking, and I also appreciate that it is difficult and time consuming to be a livery maker. However, an example of frustration when it come to fictional liveries is this: my two favorite Boeing 737-300 liveries are AirUK Leisure and Royal Mail (operated by Titan Airways). I appreciate that Air UK Leisure is a VERY obscure airline, so I can accept that nobody has make a livery for that. I will however include it as a request in the list below. But when I searched for a Royal Mail livery, the only one I could find was a fictional one based on Postman Pat. I almost laughed at this. It just seemed ridiculous to me. If you want to make a Royal Mail livery, especially if it is and continues to be the only one available for the IXEG 737, why ruin it by altering the aircraft registration to G-PAT1 or something like that, and "Operated by Titan Airways" to "Operated by special delivery service"? So that's my rant over, I'll now move onto something more constructive and list some liveries that is request. Requested liveries for the IXEG 737: Royal Mail operated by Titan Airways Air UK Leisure Thai Air Asia (There is already a livery for this, but in different colors to the ones I like. My request is for the livery with the mainly red fuselage and white vertical stabilizer). I'll attach an image. That's it! Thank you to anybody who has taken the time to read this, and a further thank you to any livery makers if they decide to take this on. Anyone is welcome to post anything in this discussion, even if you just want to let me know whether you agree of disagree with what I'm saying, or if you want to request some more obscure liveries. Finally, please excuse my user name. I don't like revealing my real name online.
