Help Build the Library

Here are some key areas where we could use some help:

Contributors

It goes without saying, we always need new contributions, so if you think you have something that would be good in the library, have a read through these guidelines for contributors and then use this form to contribute your work.

Tweakers

We need people to review and tweak objects to improve them.  Perhaps you think a certain object could be improved – maybe it could be more detailed, maybe the texture could be better, maybe it could be duplicated and altered to make an alternative variant.

Documenters

The descriptions of items, which are shown when browsing the contents section of the website, is very sparse in many cases. Sparse descriptions are not helpful to scenery authors, as they have to rely on the screenshot which may not always give full information about an item or how it is used, so these descriptions could really use some love.

Livery Creators

Bertrand Augras’ jet and GA aircraft collections are specifically designed to share a single texture across a large number of aircraft.  If you think the library is missing a livery from your favourite airline then why not take a look at the texture used by his aircraft and make up a new one?  In the case of his jet collection, making one texture will give a new livery to 17 aircraft.

Optimisers

The library needs to be continually reviewed for efficiency – Texture size, polygon count, even the incorporation of texture sharing if appropriate.   We could really use someone who is willing to take on some of this work, to make the library better and more efficient for everyone.

Translators

The installer can always do with more translations, so if you are fluent in English and another language, please get in touch. The current list of high priority translations and missing translations is here, but even if your language is not on this list, we would love to have your hep!

How To Help

If you think you can help in any of these roles, please contact us using this form.

Alternatively, if you have the technical expertise, we manage and maintain the Library on GitHub, so we are able to accept pull requests. If you do intend to work directly on the library, please get in touch first on GitHub so we can coordinate efforts.
