type request addition

Post by Jerseyvirtual » Fri May 29, 2020 7:37 am

Hi there,
Just wondering if you could add the following aircraft to the servers

Eclipse 550NG https://store.x-plane.org/Eclipse-550-NG_p_593.html
Epic 1000 https://store.x-plane.org/Epic-E1000-G1 ... p_941.html

many thanks

Looks like the E1000 is already in the database but the Eclipse 550 is not. So feel free to submit it, just make sure you have good numbers and a good reference.

Silly question Joe it’s probably staring me in the face. How would I request it.

Also I can’t seem to find the E1000 anywhere under manufactures etc to order or lease one

To submit a new aircraft go to Database -> Aircraft in the platform then select 'Add New Aircraft' from the options.

I took a closer look at the E1000 in the DB, its marked as prototype meaning it has not been delivered yet. But checking Wikipedia it says the second delivery happened in may, so I marked it as available.

Looking at the data you entered, the Dry Operating Weight and Zero fuel weight are equal, meaning it cant carry any payload. I am sure that is not what you want so if you can find the maximum payload (excluding fuel) it would make the aircraft useful.

What we need is maximum payload, but we can estimate it based on DOW + pax weight

When you order from the Manufacturers list, the delivery of the aircraft should be instant.
