[-] Cargo boost on routes
« on: March 18, 2013, 02:54:09 AM »
Can we begin to look at some cargo levels at each airport, and set a rate per measure offered?

In real life, most passenger planes would carry cargo, whether between small towns in Oz, to between major cities in Asia.

Be an interesting addition, reflect real life.
This could work well alongside passenger demand, and you can set the price.
The game would select the best price.
Other statistics assist that choice, overall service capacity, planes suitable.

Maybe even all cargo planes to lease in the future, again real Airlines.
great game thanks

Cargo will likely be part of the next major release.

Do you really think you are the first wiseguy to request something that obvious ?
Please go through old forum posts (including archives) to make sure the subject hadnīt been discussed and answered by Sami before.

Cargo has never been mentioned once in the past.

yet little do you know...

I can recall there was at least 3 topics about that, alongside with IFE and connecting PAX....

Cargo never mentioned as request in the past? Thatīs complete nonsense, it was requested and turned down repeatedly.
Or is this whole thread is a fake and your playing stupid with us? What a laugh.

If you enter the word 'cargo' in the search box, you get 10 pages of results : on the first page alone are references to threads devoted to  requests to implement cargo in the game, along with replies suggestions and discussion of the subject. I'd hazard a guess the other 9 pages of results tell a similar tale.

conclusion : some-one is having a laugh...

Sarkasm is a fine thing, but taken fully out of content, it is not clearly obvious.Not everyone knows you from your other posts.
I donīt think we should encourage noob spammers by re-spamming, especially in request forum.
To OP: If you tried to be funny,well, youīre not.Stop it.
Otherwise, get acquainted with the game first. Itīs challenging enough to master it with given possibilities.

Swiftus, you and I both know very well that sarcasm doesn't work when typed ;)

Just take good old swiftus sarcastically at all times and not at face value. It works for me. He has actually done some pretty serious stuff for the game too, more than most  :o

Why is my sarcasm level so interesting?   Seriously how could someone NOT come up with an idea for Cargo in a 5 year old sim?   The sticky in the Feature Request tells you to Search first.   I myself have had my own Cargo-based feature requests (where you simply add freight as a 4th pax type).  Unless someone wants to put a new twist on the idea, simply requesting that cargo be added to the sim is asinine. 

Sorry, but if in-flight entertainment, 'presidents clubs', or something equally similar come up, I reserve the right to be equally sarcastic.

And thank you Alex, I appreciate the remarks.  People who PM me know that I will always go out of my way to help people learn this sim.   My other goal is to always 'test' the sim through various scenarios (and I almost always fail).   After 4 years of playing, it is hardly fun dominating at LAX, ORD, EWR, LHR, HK, NRT........

Fun fact: AWS was designed to originally to run cargo airlines, but sami implement a pax model after a feature request to transport passengers instead.
