Guys I'm out.
No Boeing or Airbus means there is no party for you.
Version 1.3 has some benefits, but I feel the game is developing in the wrong direction.
Almost nothing has been done to make "a different approach" doable in the game. In fact, since ABCBA routes were no longer allowed the game lost a lot of it's value, especially if you did operate an airline with small planes.
With game worlds which might take up to a real life year I think the game will lose even more of it's volume. Game play has suffered and you can only run a profitable airline if you do he "standard" way of things over and over and over again. Wether you start in Barcelona or JFK it doesn't matter, the strategy is almost identical.
Don't you dare to try something else, like running an Airline in France using ABCBA routes with just 30 seater AC's. And you now even get penalized if you dare to run a 45 minute frequency.
Low coast carriers, Freight, Executive, Small regional airline.... these are just some names of ideas placed in the feature request topic many many times over the recent years. Nothing has been done to satisfy the needs of those who want to do something else for a change.
I'm done with 1450 order backlogs because the game started when any other decent manufacturer closed it's production line (read, Saab2000 and MD90 in MT5) just short before the game started. The result... frustration among a lot of players who are FORCED to go along in the order backlogs because the game offers no good alternative, let alone supports players to do something else then the standard way to play the game.
I do not find it thrilling to open an airline any more and do the same stuff over and over again. Now that I go on Holls for 3 weeks (to Switzerland and the UK) I decided that there was no room for AWS during my vacation, simply because running the same stuff over and over again does not satisfy me any more. Last few years I had my iPad or Laptop with me on Holidays just for AWS. I even looked up for hotels with good free WiFi and comfy sofa's so that after a day of walking and making photo's I was able to relax with looking at my airline while drinking a Guinness or something else of that black stuff.
Perhaps I'll get back in the game in three weeks, just to annoy some players witch in my perspective have grown too big. I hope I can get some joy in forcing someone into bankruptcy by rioting
an airport, given the current climate I think London would do
It's nothing personal against any player or Sami, it's just frustration of not being able to "play" the game and explore the hidden secrets of AirWaySim.
