Next game world, Friday 29th
« on: October 22, 2010, 01:45:14 PM »

The next game world of AirwaySim will begin in a week, on Friday 29th October. Approximate starting time is in the evening of European time, about 16.00 UTC.

The world will be titled "The Jet Age" and scenario time frame is the early years of jet powered aviation; starting in 1960 and running time is approximately 20 years.

Has a "difficulty" level been set?

I've decided to lose the "difficulty level" measurements from the game descriptions since they are a bit meaningless. All of these full worlds (200-500 players) can be considered "normal" difficulty; where both experienced and newer players can survive.

Weren't 80's and 90's games way more popular when you conducted the recent poll?  :-\

@NorgeFly - sometimes you gotta let the guy in charge do what he wants to do!

@Sami - is this still going to be on 1.2 or is it going to be on 1.3?

Hey, was just asking! Was just surprised to see the next world be a jet age game given that other eras were more sought after... Sami of course can do what he likes  ;D

I will not be a part of this game.  I really hope that there will be something special in store for it, though!

Ok, in 1960, ORD was open but DFW, IAH, IAD were not. JFK was called IDL until Dec 1963(would  be odd to name an airport after a living US Senator in 1960). BWI was called BAL Friendship.

Since it's an earlier date, pax demands are lower, so max. 300 (about) I'd say.

I am still also planning to add 1980s world after 2-3 weeks, which then hopefully would be the last of v.1.2. Depending on very much though how I can get started with actual work on 1.3

So it will be an early 80s like DOTM or late 80s like TMT2?

I want the later one, please :P

For the 1980s game I'd prefer 1980-2000.

I would very much like an actual FULL game. Who would want a game which lasts anywhere between 30years (1970-2000 or 1990-2020) to 100years. Why not?! Lets do the whole life of jet airliners. 1955 through to 2055. Modeling future proposals.

But if that is to much of an ask, then my second wish would be a game that begins in the late 80's through till 2050, modelling ALL varients of the A380, cargo planes, and two and three legged routes. For instants, a flight from Piarco Intl to Gatwick via Miami Intl, or TTPP to WSSS via OMDB.

...and with each leg, picking up more passengers instead of just refueling.

Everything you just requested, is something that will come in future versions. They are not coded yet. It's not like Sami chooses from a list, which features to include in this game world, and which on the next. Each game world has all the features that are ready.

Gamew worlds with cargo, A-B-C routes and so on will come when the features are coded. So no sooner than when 1.3 is out.
