Air Show Ground Object Requests

Hey HQ, I'm about 85% done with my new map and there will obviously be an air show version. I'm taking requests for certain ground objects to be made. Some examples may include newer striped small tents, large tents, aircraft (airline/mil/GA, etc... may take longer), umbrellas, lines of people, lines/groups of cars, new announcer stands, port-a-john, lemonade stands, whatever you want that I can possibly make.

FYI, the ground objects will be inside the map release.

Some heavy static aircraft would be super cool! (i.e. open C-5, C-17, C-130, 747F, 767F, A310/A300F, An-225, An-124, A-400M) Also some newer military jets for static use would be cool (F-22, F-35, F/A-18E/F/G, T-50A, T-50(Pakfa), EF-2000, JAS-39, J-20). If you want civi, the new airliners (B737MAX, 777, 787, A320/321NEO, A350, A380, MRJ, CSeries, MC21, C919). Just considering the new stuff because it's been a really long time since anyone made ground objects for aircraft (tigershark is the last I can think of). Also for the heavies, we have maybe one open heavy to use as a ground object static so these would be great for more than air shows.

A few more options in terms of parking lots (cars) would be nice too. Just different sizes of those groups to fit parking a little better.

A line of Port-o-Potty's would be especially useful so I can put them next to the Vuelo Beach Pulled Pork Sandwiches tents :lol:

Also by the way, maybe not exactly an air show ground object, but more nice ATC towers would be absolutely glorious. There's like, 1.

Perhaps public transportation, such as buses and trams? Or possibly TV/News crews?

Judy the comm cart? ;) Or perhaps a new announcing stand?

Can it be made to be that ILS objects cannot be F6 style cameras?

What about non ILS becoming a F6 camera point?

I'm pretty sure it can be done so:

An ILS that does not function as an F6 camera, and

An F6 camera that does not function as an ILS.

What can be done with these?

Place an F9 camera for the primary viewpoint at show center.
Place multiple F6 cameras for other key viewpoints - Apron, Runway thresholding, raceways etc.
Replace normal F6 camera ILS etc with non-camera objects. Now the ILS works for pilots but does not distract from the camera cycles with F6.

This would give a lot of viewing flexibility and camera control.

Low poly taxiway and runway sign triangular prism thingos.

I can't think of anything more useful then those. All those times I get lost in large YS airports because of a lack of signs to point what goes where.

I already finished the 757-200, 777ER, F-16, F/A-18C, A-10C, and currently finishing up the F/A-18E/F and F-15E. I am actually focusing on large heavy aircraft at the moment. Probably gonna do the 737MAX, 787, A380, C-17, C-5, KC-135, KC-10, B-1. Afterwards I'll do the F-35 and F-22 but have cones with rope around it.

TV crew would be cool.

In my ground object pack (released last Christmas) I have a person in there (the object is a YSGP person) with a yellow shirt that is actually an F6 localizer which acts as a person on the ground with a camera 1.75m above the ground.

I was thinking about going some low poly taxiway signs but they seem counterproductive in a way.

How about crowds of people? Or small groups of people? Set some motions paths and bam real crowds.

I meant to mention the cones and rope around those but I forgot so I'm glad you got exactly what I was thinking on the money. The above would be absolutely perfect :D

Here's what I got so far, I'll probably post the rest in Current Projects. For now, these are just blanks; I'll paint them up a little later. Each are around 150 KB - 250 KB (maybe too detailed)? I hate to be cocky, but the dreamliner's engine nacelle exhaust is baller 8-)

Nope, from scratch.
