Schedule of next game worlds
« on: July 28, 2009, 04:59:26 PM »
As you can read from our previous announcements we have been working on updates and improvements to our system for the past months. Now the version 1.1 of AirwaySim game engine is nearing completion and is already being tested on our servers.

The update will consists of a completely new aircraft ordering system that is more realistic and also more flexible to the user than before. The loans system has been also updated a bit and changes have been made elsewhere in the aircraft functions and features too. You can read the full list of updates from our forum (see link below).

This updated game engine will be briefly tested before it will be put to action. At this time we estimate that the next game worlds will begin on this Friday (31-Jul) evening (European time).

The planned game worlds will be:

    * World similar to current Air Travel Boom game world. Skill level: Easy.

    * 1-2 game worlds with a single continent only (North America or Europe only). Skill level: Hard.

    * Demo game with limited features.

Very cool Sami!

how about those hard worlds we could have:

1) North America- as stated
2) Europe- as stated
3) one or two of the harder continents like Africa and/or South America

and what about time line?

I still am hoping to see a very early age of flight 1945-1960 perhaps?
just curious.

Thanks again Sami! Keep up the great work.

Hi Sami,
           what about one game including Europe and all the mediterranean area like north Africa and Middle East?
And the time line could be starting in the 80s up to 2000

Is there any idea of what hour things might kick off tomorrow?  I'd hate to miss the start.

I'm working until 8pm (UK time) so I'm wondering if I need to drive faster on the way home  ;)

As said there already, in the evening EU time. No exact time in hours/minutes, don't know that myself either... And you do got 24hrs time before the game clock starts ticking.

So these new games will be using AWS 1.1? If so, I can't wait to try this out!

One will be similar to ATB as mentioned before. But it is unknown about the others. Don't worry, the games should start in more than 4 hours time...I'm guessing.

Oh no!, Im on a summercamp! I dont have much time to dedicate to the computer!

Could the start be delayed until all current games end?

That would be great, thanks!

LOL Filippo, I think we do not even need to vote on your proposal... There is so much desperation in the air now, there is a good chance of bloodshed if that were put up for voting...  ;D

But a general question:

If the new world opens today and the clock starts 24h later, will we be able to make all arrangements already tonight (routes, a/c)? I would like to know when I should reserve a few hours for this. Thanks.

Denis
