Highest number of players

MT8 is now in the record books.  The highest number of players in a game world: 653

It didn't work with 600.. certainly won't work with more. So frustrating.

Like I have said before, a full game world with the whole world and the massive modern day demands can support 1000+ players I'd reckon.

Having something around 300 players in such a game would be nonsense.

There are various limits that the game world hits at various times:
1. Limits of aircraft on the UM
2. Limits of what production lines can produce
3. Slot limits at slot constrained airports
4. Overall passenger demand

There is not a huge difference between 600 and 700 players.  Eventually, the gameworld loses players as some players take up more of the limited resources above.

In theory, all these resources could be indexed to number of players in the game world...

692 already. I have no doubt as I saw we had full players in MT7. As there's more players, of course MT8 is going to be full soon

I think 700 is a little ridiculous, I mean there's 1000+ orders for the A318-A321 series, and 700+ for the 737's currently available. This reduces growth to almost nothing, and entirely hands the game to players in big airports who can grow the fastest.

I seem to recall that in one of the previous game worlds (MT6?), the production line accelerated to something like 40-47 per month.  I am not sure if it was really working, since the system can display only up to 31 day slots.  But I think the production lines should really accelerate, to accommodate all the orders and all the players...

It is only going to get worse, now that the UM is getting empty, and players have money...

It's not actually that big of a problem. After 10 or so game years more regional jets are available and ~100 or so players have quit. I did very well in MT6 with MD90s.

I'm in the US with three competitors and dozens of others flying in but it hardly feels crowded at all. Demand is growing faster than it can be filled and slots trickle out every day so there's plenty of room for all of us. Find your niche and think outside of the A320/737 box.

I am excited for when the PAX demand is finally met - the ability to setup bases in a couple months may spur a whole new round of competition, particularly as those airlines in slot constrained airports try to break-out.  If fuel also jumps, we may see the first wave of bankruptcies for this world.
