Game too slow
« on: April 21, 2010, 12:28:30 AM »
Hi Sami,

35 mins is way too long, I thought 30 mins got the highest vote in your survey. This makes game longer too in real life and after a while we loose intrest.

At this pace I dont feel like playing, too many players, too slow game time.

Any thoughts

I agree, 35 makes it just a little too long.

3 1/2 hours a week was good, overnight you might get two, maybe three weeks game play so once you went off to bed you could come back the next day and you had some decent progress. The extra 35 mins per game week just make it drag on a little.

I have to agree, 30 minutes is long enough and makes it easy to calculate timings.

25 is good... 15 (speed game) would be even better... but I think 30 is best.

It was most likely boosted to 35 so the servers can compute all the info.
(and by that I mean sami might be working on connections :D )

35 it'll be.... ;)     Not because of the servers, but to try new things. (and actually, to topic starter, the slower the time the less time it needs to management per day - many people have stated that it is sometimes too time consuming.

Building on what Sami said, I am happy with the 35min days, so far.

It helps because Im on vacation currently and don't need to login as much. Plus, it was a big plus at the start of the game because my internet went down for nearly two days...


So.. for me its a good thing  :P 


Thank you Sami!

well Sami, I think we have a easy decison then  2 game worlds identically (1 X 250 players=30 mins) and (1 x 250 players =35 mins) people have choice, All happy in shot incl you credits keep rolling LOL.

Any comments/suggestions on that idea :)

Strongly agree, I used to manage over 500 planes in one game and that was painful... especially one night I was receiving over 100 planes at the same day.....

Perhaps time to introduce different server times as follow:

Speed game: Day changes every 20/25/30 minutes
Normal game: Day changes every 35/45 minutes (perhaps even every 60 minutes)

The survey indeed concluded 30 was the most popular and I think those people votes should be respected in the form of "30 minute" servers

Thats your problem as 500 is exceptionally high. Most players in the game stay between 60 and 200 which can be done quite well in 25/30 minutes. Also people often play in multiple scenario's which adds up to that. Its space time continuem actually.... If you have two airlines you can only spend half your time on each of them. So I think it's up to players own descretion to start up a second, third, fourth or even a fith airline... but don't come here and cry for another additional few minutes couse you can't cope with the time your airlines ask from you.

Nothing personal ofcourse... but just what I experienced myself when having four airlines. (for me that was too much)

35 minutes is good for me. NO way on any longer though. 45-60 is rediculous, such as the proposal by another player. Shoot, I might forget to play at that slow rate of progress.

IMHO 35 minutes is 5 minutes to long. The earlier games were always 20-25 min, which was great! Then 30 min came around, which was good. But now, with 35 min? I'm not complaining about it, but I'd rather have 30 minutes.

Yeah, now that I think about it 30 min would be better, but then there are the issues sami mentioned above.
