So I am on my way home and I have an idea for a new product that could add another level of realism on top of existing.
The idea is a product to allow 2 users connecting over a network, to simulate pushback, and other tug movements.
Imagine signing in on vatsim and being able to request a tug, you exchange up info, and tug is able to push aircraft from the gate.
Now imagine landing with no hydraulics, if a tug is online, a controller in theory could dispatch it to move the aircraft, rather than requiring the player to disconnect.
Now to implement wide adoption, have the pilot side utility free, but make tug side paid, or sell pilot side client as commercial and/or apart of the new smartcars.
It's just an idea, I know the 717 has a pilot to pilot connection, but wasn't sure if that could be easily reversed engineered for a project like this.
For those who might use it, what do you think?
