Limit on bases allowed
« on: August 07, 2010, 03:45:41 AM »
I think a limit should be placed on the amount of bases an airline can open.  I know of several people playing in my alliance have had problems because of this issue and I also had the same problem in a previous game.  Perhaps maybe one new base per game year.   ;D

  There is a limit on the number of bases that you can open and a time limit on how often. Currently it is set a 1 HQ and 3 bases and it takes 18 months from opening your airline before you can open your 1st base and then 1 more year after each subsequent base to open the next base. There is also a minimum number of ac required before you can open a base.

And the maximum number of aircraft you can operate at base airports are 70.

Gentleman,
The posts are from 3 years ago. Is this still valid:

a) 1 HQ + 3 bases
b) 18 months from opening your airline before you can open your 1st base
c) 12 months after each subsequent base to open the next base
d) 70 is the maximum number of aircraft at base airports

Thanks in advance.

Tks Lemon.

By the way, B checks include A checks. Do C checks include B & A checks?
If yes, it makes sense to have C checks on the last week of the month.

Or am I missing something here?

All checks include lesser checks.

Thanks Lemon. Last one:

Say the C check (which includes A & B checks) was on a Monday, say also that the B check is set-up for Tuesday, and say this is the last week of the month.

a) Would the B check not be performed because it had been done the day before, during C check?
b) And if not, then is it smart to concentrate all C check dates (either by delaying the C check and/or hand picking planes for lease) on the last week of the month, and then setting-up the B checks on the same day as the C check? 

For info I searched the forum and can't find a clear answer.
Thanks in advance.

It is smart to not micromanage the checks--just let them happen, with exception to the D-check every 8 years which is long and expensive.  It is 6 one way and half a dozen the other.

 :D

Got it. I manage Manitoba, a regional airline carrier with HQ in Kobe (UQB), Japan, level 4 airport. Opened on 25th of May 1979. 62 Airports served with 49 (small) planes. Turning at about 3 million a month in net profit. Every penny counts!

Stay well.
