The big question remains; time, effort, and funds - vs. market feasibility.
has an edge, in that; even though another developer has already produced
that type of aircraft, they can still pick up the same customers
, because of Accu-sim.
This is great for A2A, great for us, and actually, great for the other developer as well. Because it forces the standard within the whole community up a notch.
Now, given those factors, there is a market for those who would rather not fly with Accu-Sim, simply because of the added realism. They would rather just Ctrl-E and just fly, at the end of a work day. That is fine, and if they desire, they cann still have the A2A bird, without the Accu-sim. However, this market is in the hands of the rest of the payware developers circle. So, in this category, popular aircraft that have not yet
, or not recently
been professionally produced, will reign high in the list of "options" that a company like A2A might pursue.
Something like Rare Bear? Love the idea, but there isn't a market.
Precious Metal? Sorry, same problem.
Another Bearcat? Well...maybe, but it would need Accu-Sim.
Sea Fury? In the opinion of some...we're still waiting
So get this
guys...you know of an aircraft that you would love to have produced??? Doesn't seem to be a big market for it? Here's what you do:
1.) Find 20 Likeminded people
Then find at least 10 of those people willing to INVEST.
2.) Collect $100 investments from each of those 10. (With their understanding that they may never see a thing from it!)
3.) Contact a company that has a standard of professionalism and quality that you desire. (could even be a freeware guy/guys) If they are not bogged down with current projects.
Obtain his address, or paypal. Don't tell them why.. Send them $1,000 - With a description of what you are looking for, and a list of the first 10 customers. He'll either accept, or send your money back. If they take your money, without response...they must not have been as professional as you thought. Try, try again!
If you can manage the above, any developer might take the request seriously.
Best of luck!
