FSPAI is taking over medium bodies
« on: February 11, 2020, 01:40:00 PM »
According to first previews on his FB page, Missi is working on B73X/A32X mixes. Since there is almost zero chance for FAIB upgrades, I assume that FSPAI will be obvious choice if the PBR and all other new features will be implemented.

Painters choice at the end of the day. Missi's models will still be payware and the FAIB models are still good, so some will not be willing to paint on a payware model, especially if the only thing missing is PBR.

I agree regarding painters choice. However, with all these new upgrades and improvements AIG team has performed on old AIA and TFS models, why FAIB was left behind? Something is wrong with Erez's permission?

I have a feeling most of the usual painters will continue on the FAIB models. PBR or not.

As has been stated, FAIB is freeware and while it may be rather inexpensive I can't justify spending money just for having an AI model in the sim. While yes, newer models are being produced and put into service, there are still substitutes available in the general family that can be used to fit the role. I think most painters will follow along the same route except for those who have either previously purchased payware models or intend for payware to be their primary bulk of AI addons.

It's nice to have a payware option and considering that MSFS 2020 is on the horizon, it makes sense to have someone like Missi who will update his models to the new sim, assuming that's possible.

We are lucky to have any active AI modellers in the scene payware or freeware. Payware models are better than no models.
Given how complex and time consuming modelling (to a high standard) is nowadays and all the features that are expected to be included, its going to be very tough to find anyone willing to do that for free going forward.
I think its fair to say that with FS2020 the bar is only going to be set even higher.

Well if I knew people would be painting the planes I would most likely buy the medium body FSP planes. But if no one will be painting them it would seem like a waste of money to buy them.

We'll just have to wait and see what happens when they come out. No painters have made definitive statements on whether or not they'll paint on Missi's new models.

Right? After doing some model conversions for personal use, I've learned just how complex of an art it truly is. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. We're lucky that people built models for free to begin with!

Anything Missi makes I'm open to paint on, doubt many others will though to be honest
