Got a new idea for SimAirline.net? We'd like to hear it.

Saab 2000

Post by Carlo » 18 Jun 2008, 18:17

I noticed that the SAAB 2000 simairline's chosen to use is really quite old and of poor quality compared to this one:

It's freeware and better, why not update the link?

Aaron has been out of town for a couple days, and he is trying to catch up. Within a couple days he will see this suggestion, and he will start to check out if this is really a better version. Thanks!

To my knowledge the Saab 2000 is only available at Swissair, and it is that model (BSMP).

You may be looking at the other model.

It's up to the Swissair Manager, Ali in this case to determine what is or isn't the best suitable aircraft for his airline.
In this case I imagine he just hasn't had time to test this one as he's extremely busy. Might want to shoot him an email about it though.

Nick, that is the same model we offer, but it is not linked from Avsim.

Are you sure that's the same model we offer? :?

The screenshots of the one we link to, well, either they're taken on a 486, or it's a totally different model (it looks like the most basic model I've seen. My AI models are more detailed than that one)

It says it is by the same people (BSMP). When I flew it it was fine, so I don't know what screenshots you were looking at.

Nevermind, my bad.

Oh and btw that BSMP model's pretty good, but that's about it. In VC view I have a pushback tug stuck to me no matter where I am, the sounds are laughable and the acceleration is crazy. Also it has a terrible time with the auto throttle, constantly adjusting and in PIO (should be AIO)
