Start a new VA?

Post by KM6BZH » Sun Jul 31, 2016 4:02 pm

Hi people.

I want to start a new VA operating around SW united states. I have the ideas, but I don't know how to repaint the aircraft (how can I open .srf files? and more). Does anyone know how to repaint the aircrafts? I will be making a website for my new VA (no name yet). Updates will follow.

Update: The Name for the new VA would be "Cal-Air" in short for Californian Virtual Airline.

Just make sure that the name you choose for your VA is not the same as something already out there in the real world. Google is your friend ;). Looks like a good start so far, looking forward to seeing what you have in store.

There are plenty of tutorials on repainting SRF files here on YSFHQ, please do look around the addon creation sub forum for information and stickied posts regarding this.

*sigh* I wonder whether half the VAs that start will survive at least 1 year.

What if everybody had their own VA, and we filled the skies with a bunch of different liveries? :D

Good luck with this if it takes off. :)

But I think the server should be able to hold a few more packs before anything explosive happens. Have fun with this and all wishes to a successful and lengthy VA career. :)
