Hello everyone.

This modding community is growing all larger for each day. Private people work on their free time to bring the community awesome mods to enhance and perfect an simulator which already can seem obsolete in some peoples eyes. This is great! people even get educated in areas like graphics works, coding, 3d modelling, foreign languages etc. I have myself learnt allot since i joined the Lock On community, mostly in the graphical part as some people may have noticed. With this said i will go straight to the point. There is a little catch with having alot of modding groups wich i think can be quite annoying. Sometimes you need help in the mod making and for instance there is only 1 guy knowing how to accomplish what you are trying to do. So you have to google the net to find a website which he is at, join a forum, find a email adress and hope he replies. This can happen quite often, so in teh end you end up beeing a forum member at loads of forums which you rarely visit. Imagine these 2 people that are in contact with eachother about this thing actually work parallele to eachother on the same forum but in different mod groups. The only thing the other part would need to do is to make 2 clicks and post a post of what he wants to know to the other part, or send a PM. Another advantage with having a global mod site is that the community wich admires the work of the induvidual modders and mod groups doesent have to track 10 websites to get a status report. Alot of information can be found at this great forum, but elts face it. Some mod threads are rarely updated, and when they are updated there is always some armchair pilot at home that is making idiotic comments about it. Having a forum with loads of dedicated modders that help eachother would raise the knowledge base between us all through the ceeling over night!.

 

So my question to everyone out there now is....

Is this an idea worth pursuing? I offer hosting of files on my domain, I have allready started on website and forums. The only thing that is needed is the interest from the community to ahve something like this. I know that mod groups have their own websites allready, and they can still keep them. But i still think it would be better to have everyone at a more local location rather than spread out like crazy over the net. Working close together will increase the quality and quantity of mods, and fast! . When the DCS series simulators comes out i think this will be even more attractive.

 

Here you can see the site and the site idea: http://www.virtualavia.com/site

 

And here you ahve the forum layout that i thought of: http://www.virtualavia.com/site/boards

 

You can read a short text about the concept on the first page of the website.

Hope this awakens interest in people.

 

Best Wishes

Shaggy

Hope this works out Shaggy, seems one of the most sensible idea's in a long time, no more searching etc, and will hopefully bring everyone together to share problems etc, even though I am not a modder I think this is a wonderful idea.

EDIT: Would it be a good idea to link to Lockonfiles.com as they are another major site where Lockon / FC / DCS is concerned.

Remember the 346 Fire Fighters, Medics & Police who died on 9-11.......

 

Selective memory is a wonderful thing, especially when certain posts simply disappear into the ether never to be seen again, unless I have a copy of the original post copied and pasted into word documents and saved .... just in case :)

Am I an abusive idiot ?

 

Due to physical incapacity my Wife types my post's for me

Thank you guys :) .

@ BrumTx

 

I link to Lock On Files and Virtual-Jabog32 because they are basiclly the most common websites to find mods on. For instance Tigrous smokewinder mod you can find there, Bezcels various weapon pod mods you can find there. My Mig-29 Skins etc..... That is why i choosed to link there. Though maybe i will move those link into a bigger page of links and not have them on the main page.

 

If you guys have any tips or requests about what should be changed and how we can make the concept better, feel free to tell me :)

Maybe im impatient, but maybe i also wrote this thread in the wrong section, and im afraid if I don't spam this thread a little it will slip away un noticed.

This is a very good idea!! I hope that the modders out there will come to realize that something like this is need. I say this as one of the people who looks for help all over the place. I get very few replies, just the same people who are always there to give of their time to help out. A site such as yours, would maybe bring any questions or help to more ears. That in itself would be worth it. Newbies can't learn if people who know how don't help out. Yes, and there is the consideration of RL for modders. Sometimes RL more than not will take them away from helping even if they wanted to and that is realistic and very understandable as RL should take precident over sims. and modding. Therefore your idea is totally going in the right direction. Spam if you have to as I agree with you that this is very important to the community. Cheers and Best of Luck. I hope your concept gets embrassed by the modders.:):thumbup:

Thanks rattler That was the energy boost i needed from a couple of days of work, I will soon post my first status report for a project on that site.

@ the rest of the community. Head over there. Post some tutorials if you like, Send a PM to me if there is any other forum within the boards you think is needed. Media and media editing i think is just as important in this business. How to edit pictures/videos, creating signatures, animated pictures, how to edit/work with a track etc....... Its all about what the community wants.
