THE MoTIS AIRCRAFT DESIGNATION SYSTEM
First let us explain that we are a total concept design group who designs every aircraft that we make from the bottom up. What this means is that we are in the business of flight simulation as real world designers using this fantastic simulator to create and test and fly aircraft that can be built in the real world.. We are only focusing on designing never before seen concepts and have had great interest developed in the MoTIS mission and our ideas and designs by real world sport pilots and aircraft builders. MoTIS to our current knowledge is the first Commercial Freeware/Payware total concept design group on the net! We see our selves as following in the path of a Boeing aircraft company in the fact that we're producing never before seen designs from our design staff. What this means is that every single aircraft on our site was designed and developed by our staff. i.e.. they don't exist in the real world as of yet. This to our knowledge has never been done on a consistent bases by one developing group so we have been very careful as to how ,when , and what we developed so that we may have long life and not be just some fly by night group that surfaces and in a few months is gone with the wind, so to speak. This area of design has been very challenging in that there is no real rule book as to how to developed, process, and gauge what will be a good or great FS design. So we have had to developed our own rulebook and this brings us to the goal of this explanation page.
MoTIS has had to create a very different aircraft designation system then seen and observed by other design groups and even our real world brothers. The main reason for this is that our designs may never become real world aircraft but we must design them with the potential to be. You see if we were to really build them we could lets say ' make the M1, M2 etc., but this is really very impractical in our opinion as so many things in the FS world of design change each time a new FS upgrade comes along.. So if we were to create a lets say M1 and then two years later the system platform changes then we would never be able to keep up with the upgrades as far as starting with a base prototype i.e the first model and then building up. You see in the real world the planes change but not the air or the ground i.e....the stuff you fly the airplane into.
So this brings us to our aircraft designation system. We call it the 2D design trials..
2D design trials sample paper prototype photo for our recent RoYAL HoNEY.
What the 2D design trials are all about are, doing all the major work for a design on paper then making our first prototype on paper, and changing the paper design until we get it perfect after which the first design we put into our CAD software has been altered several or even hundreds of times!
The amount of times that we change the original 2D paper design then becomes the number for that aircraft.
An example of this is the M22. the M22 was started on paper and changed 22 times to get it right. Now the M is pretty obvious. It means MoTIS, so the M22 means the MoTIS 22nd design for that specific aircraft type.
The M also as it stands by it self and means that this is a standard non-military and non-specialty aircraft.
The specialty lettering: As we are unable to predict all the ways that we might need to describe a particular aircraft we need and use the specialty designation to label aircraft according to our design needs so we will not list them all but we will make you aware of where they are and what they mean as they relate to a specific design.
OUR BASIC PRIMARY AIRCRAFT LETTERING SYSTEM
OUR BASIC PRIMARY AIRCRAFT VARIANT LETTERING SYSTEM
B = SECOND VARIANT
This is a name given to a special aircraft that may or may not have a variant and is a totally freeform designation applying to that specific aircraft in question.
MNSF-T6 RoYAL HoNEY
M=MOTIS and the NSF =NUCLEAR STRIKE FIGHTER
IN THIS CASE THE T6 STANDS FOR THE TRIPLE 6 AND NOT THE 6TH 2D PAPER TRIAL NUMBER..
THIS AIRCRAFT IS A VERY SPECIAL DESIGNATION AND ALL SPECIAL DESIGN DESIGNATIONS ARE SPELLED OUT WELL...
Here's a sample of how it works:
1.The M22 AIR TAXI
M=MOTIS AND 22 IS THE 22ND PAPER DESIGNS WE CREATED TO COME TO
THIS FINAL MODEL THAT WE BUILT IN G-MAX OR FSDS.. AIR TAXI IS THE GENERIC NAME.
2.THE MF-1A DEMON RYDER
M=MOTIS AND THE F = FIGHTER CLASS, SO MF =MOTIS FIGHTER CLASS
1=AIRCRAFT PERFECTED ON ORIGINAL FIRST 2D PAPER DESIGN TRY
THE A =THE FIRST VARIANT.
M=MOTIS AND THE O = ONLY, MEANING NO MORE WILL BE DESIGNED BUT THIS ONE OF THIS CLASS , MO= MOTIS ONLY ONE BUILD ,THE X= EXTREME , AND THE 3 IS THE TIMES IT WAS ALTERED IN THE 2D PAPER TRIALS.
4. A SPECIALTY AIRCRAFT- MSN-1
M=MOTIS AND THE SN = THE NAME OF THE SPECIALTY DESIGNATION, IN THIS CASE SUPER NOVA, AND THE 1 IS THE TIMES IT WAS ALTERED IN THE 2D PAPER TRIALS.
==WE THINK YOU GET THE PICTURE ==
THE AIRCRAFT GENERIC NAME
This is the name that we give the design which is the name that the general public will call it. i.e. the true name that the aircraft will be known as in the world.
Example: The Demon Ryder or RoYAL HoNEY.
THE LOGO DESIGNATOR
This is a neat and added bonus that we add to our aircraft to give them flavor and character.
That's about it we hope you understand our reasoning and have fun flying MoTIS designs...
