Program actions for the future
« on: January 27, 2012, 02:34:55 AM »
It might be useful to be able to program certain actions ahead of time.  Here are some things I can think of:

- Terminate lease on certain date
- Purchase leased aircraft on certain date
- Place aircraft on used aircraft market (including arriving aircraft)
- Perform C/D check on certain date

Sami has said no to placing arriving aircraft on the market for technical reasons: http://www.airwaysim.com/forum/index.php/topic,37210.0.html

I agree with the rest though, all would be good to have.

Well, the trigger could be set to take place after the aircraft is delivered.   If a functionality is created to get all of the above done, sending aircraft to used market would just follow the same functionality.

The programming actions would have fields:
- Aircraft ID (tricky one but could be resolved to something that exists for current and future aircraft.  Limiting it to aircraft about to be delivered, which exists on scheduling page) would be sufficient
- Date
- Time (well, the question is if it is to be triggered before other actions - aircraft deliveries, terminations or after
- Action parameters, if any (useful for sending aircraft to use market)

Thinking about the Time paremeter, it is probably unnecessary. 
- Purchase action could automatically take place before lease expirations get processed by the system for the day
- Sale action could automatically take place after deliveries of aircraft get processed by the system for the day
