New Aircraft Page - Issue?
« on: May 04, 2012, 04:36:07 PM »
Just started - ordered two used aircraft.  Went to look at new aircraft page, and it won't let me look at options, saying only two aircraft mey be ordered the first day - just takes me back to the type list page.  However, if I go in via Aircraft - Production lists, there is an airline which has 6 x 737-200ADV on order.  A bug, or another issue?

Cheers

The rule is that you cannot have more than two orders each day, not two aircrafts. The 6 * 737-200ADV are one order, so it is ok.

That's my understanding too, but to not even be able to see the page is a bit annoying - it would be good to be able to look through pricing etc in preparation for when we can order more a/c.

Just curious, how can they afford to by 6 727-200 Adv's right from the beginning. Don't we all start with $5 Mill and a poor credit rating?

correction: 5 in the first 3 days ;)

I have 5 a/c, 1 is an L1011, and the other 4 are 721/2/2Adv. Easy to get... [if I say what I'd like to say I am likely to get banned, so I will not say it ;) ]

cheers

No, he was thinking that why someone could BUY SIX 727s in the first day.

There were none. There were airlines who had LEASED up to TWO 727s (as new) in the first day. (plus perhaps an odd single used plane, but certainly not six in total and not bought either)

I would have to agree, the 727-200Adv are very easy to get..

I grabbed 2 from the used market, and already put an order for a new one, and I still have about 2.5 mil in the bank ;D

I think he means 737's.  There was an airline that put in a lease order for 6 on the first day plus leased 1 craft from the used market.

I myself leased 1 from the used market and put in a lease order for 3 737's.

OK, well that I did not look, and may be possible since 37 is cheaper.

But have to note that $5 mil in 1978 is quite a bit of money - this world has easier startup setting moneywise, but on other hand plane production rate and slot counts are not that high.

So, we have reduced slot numbers again? No longer the 200%?! Thank god*!!!!

Not really. There is the standard pattern the slots follow, as usual - a gradual and fast growth from a tiny amount to a larger number than in reality or v.1.2 (200% comprared to it). But then I have a game specific variable to control global amount of slots, and in previous Dotm it was 1.4 (or 1.3?) while now it is 1.0 (= (slot amount)*1.0 ). So lower than in previous world of the same title.

I agree.  It would be helpful to still see the new a/c order page, particularly at the beginning of a game.
