AirwaySim receives high scores from beta testers
« on: January 06, 2009, 07:33:05 PM »
AirwaySim has been tested by a group of couple hundred beta testers over the last months. This full scale beta testing has been the final step before the release of AirwaySim and it is soon ending and the software will be published during the upcoming weekend.

Before the testing ended we held a survey to all of the testers to get their opinions of AirwaySim after their experiences during the beta period. All of the replies to this survey are from the beta and pre-beta testers only (ie. not from developers) so they represent the actual opinions of the persons who have played the game and seen it "in action".

Here are some extracts of the survey questions:

    * After playing the beta please give an overall grade for AirwaySim
      1 - lowest, 3 - average, 5 - highest

      1: 0%
      2: 1%
      3: 7%
      4: 58%
      5: 35%


      => Average score 4.3


    * Does AWS have enough in-game features available?
      1 - not at all, 3 - could have some more, 5 - plenty of features

      1: 1%
      2: 4%
      3: 28%
      4: 45%
      5: 23%

      => Average score 3.9


    * Rate the AWS game user interface - ease of use and layout
      1 - lowest, 3 - average, 5 - highest

      1: 0%
      2: 2%
      3: 18%
      4: 57%
      5: 24%

      => Average score 4.0


    * With your knowledge of aviation, how realistic would you see AirwaySim?
      1 - very unrealistic, 3 - average, 5 - very realistic

      1: 1%
      2: 6%
      3: 28%
      4: 53%
      5: 13%

      => Average score 3.7


    * If you have played other airline games (online or regular) - please give a grade to AWS related to the others in the market.
      1 - worse, 3 - similar, 5 - better than any other

      1: 1%
      2: 3%
      3: 11%
      4: 18%
      5: 56%

      => Average score 4.4


    * Compared to other airline games rate how much more likely, or unlikely, you would be to play AWS?
      1 - highly unlikely, 3 - no opinion or either game, 5 - much more likely to play AWS

      1: 3%
      2: 3%
      3: 10%
      4: 21%
      5: 52%

      => Average score 4.3


We also asked several other questions but these were just a few examples of the answers received. The beta team has also sent valuable feedback to us and we shall continue to develop and improve AirwaySim according to these comments. Also here a public thank you for the pre-beta and beta team for their help in the development process!

As you can see from the survey questions above the feedback and opinions of AirwaySim have been extremely positive. There is always room for improvement but we are very happy about these results and are confident that the general public and all you airline fans will also like AirwaySim and use it as your preferred airline simulation game.
