Title: Correcting aircraft data
Post by: neez on April 06, 2021, 03:52:55 pm
Hey, as I heard some mumbling about a reset I thought I'd bring some things up regarding wrong aircraft data. There are several planes where some data should be adjusted:

- "Dornier 328ET" -> It's actually called "Dornier 328JET" (as it is a 328 with jet engines). Source: https://328.eu/dornier-328-jet/

- Embraer ERJ-Family: The "ERJ175" and the "EMB170-200" in game are actually the same plane irl. The Embraer E-Jet-Family consists of four models:
-- E170 (or EMB170-100)
-- E175 (or EMB170-200)
-- E190 (or EMB190-100)
-- E195 (or EMB190-200)
Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embraer_E-Jet_family#Operators
(in the subsequent modernised E2-Family, the E170 was discontinued and there are only three models: E175-E2, E190-E2, E195-E2)

- MD-11: The capacity in game is too low! The in game capacity is a 3-class-configuration. The max. capacity of the MD-11 irl is 410! Source: https://www.boeing.com/resources/boeingdotcom/company/about_bca/startup/pdf/historical/md11-passenger.pdf

- Boeing 737s: several of the classic- and next-generation-families have wrong seat numbers for max. capacity. They should be:
-- 737-400: 168 capacity
-- 737-500: 132 capacity
-- 737-600: 130 capacity
-- 737-900ER: 215 capacity
Source, p.5-7: http://www.boeing.com/assets/pdf/commercial/airports/acaps/737.pdf

- Boeing 737-700C we have in game is not really a thing. It's the same as a 737-700, just that it has a cargo door and seats can be removed to make space for cargo. Just 20 have been built, there is not really reason to have it in game.

Maybe this can be corrected for the coming resets!

NOOOOO! Why did you keep the totally unrealistic capacity for the MD-11!?  :'( :'( :'(

Why the EMB-195 (190-200) is not in the game?

It's an excellent aircraft!
