YSAS Survey/poll - What would you like to see more of?

Post by vandal » Mon Dec 05, 2011 11:09 pm

YSAS isn't just about airshows, even though it's in our name. We want to promote YSFlight online play, and do this by running online events.
So what would you like to see more of in YSAS? Or what would you like us to add?

A bit more information on the different events:

General Air Shows
Your bog standard airshow, 2 displays per-pilot with unlimited live multi-ship demo and limited and specially selected replays. Done on a different map each time to keep it fresh.

Themed Air Shows
A themed airshow at a map to match the theme. Pilots still limited to 2 displays with unlimited live multi-ship demo and limited and specially selected replays. All displays must fit within the theme. This will make people think about their displays a bit more as well as mixing up the aircraft used at airshows as most people choose to fly the same aircraft at each show.

Air Race (Red Bull style)
In the style of the Red Bull air races. pilots fly one at a time to post the quickest time on a course. We tried it and it wasn't a huge success. I personally put this down to the fact people didn't practice enough, there was no qualifying pre hand to pick only the fastest and the course was too spread out meaning it wasn't quick enough. Ideas for improvement, small course area, online pre-show qualifying as well as online pre-show practice sessions.

Air Race (Reno style)
Multi-lap, multi-aircraft races between extremely high performance aircraft on oval courses which range between 3 miles and 8 miles in length per lap. Pilots fly world war two aircraft and race each other. Again online pre-show qualifying as well as online pre-show practice sessions will be a must.

Point to point air race
Racing on large scale maps from one point to another. Not best for spectators but maybe with live streaming will be better?

Aerobatic competitions
Judges rate the skill of pilots performing aerobatic flying. online pre-show practice sessions will be a must to make this a success.

Display team competition
Judges rate the skill of display teams performing. Each team must have 2 or more pilots taking part and can be different or the same aircraft flown. No replays.

Stunt flying
What it says on the box, pilots will need to fly the stunt course with challenging obstetrical flying over, under and through objects. Fastest time wins, with high chances of crashing. Fastest pilot or the pilot who made it the furthest wins. Online pre-show qualifying as well as online pre-show practice sessions will be a must.

Addon show
Bit like an airshow, but pilots must show off their own work. From scratch made models to repaints. Awards will be given to pilots for different categories. Maybe make it an bi-annual or annual awards ceremony?

You know, we should make Scarecrow's airshow ideas come true:

-Airshows at stock maps to keep things simple(with airshow ground objects)
-An airshow every month
-maybe even that festival he was talking about last new years, with the black knights?

Just my 3 cents...

We have 365 days in a year, Add one every four years.

We also have about 10 or so ideas floating around.

We have many enthusiasts here who are capable of hosting servers, modding and just having a good time.

I think we can have one of each, maybe.

As far as I know, there has never been specifically a WW2/Korean/Vietnamese only themed airshow. So, i think it may be a good idea to have one.
