[-] 787-10
« on: March 30, 2013, 02:28:50 PM »
Found this image of a Boeing press briefing
Guess the 787-10 can be added...

With this a question comes to mind: can the modern times be either made longer or, shifted.
I mean, the CSeries, A350 and from MT8 the 737MAX and A320NEO arrive a bit late. This will be even worse for the 787-10 and eventually the 777X (which will fly in 2019 for the -9 and 2021 for the -8)...

I think the game should last till at least 2025...

Starting date used to be later few games ago, but it is 1995 now to keep MD-80/90 production lines open.

It really should last to 2025 or so, but it would be 30y game with current starting date. Faster days would keep the duration short enough, but that ain't an option according to sami.

Well I'd rather make a REAL use of 73M, A32N and 781 than the MD80...
For crying out loud it is the MODERN TIMES... Not the 1995 times...

I have to agree with you, especially with these new models added lately. 2000-2025 would be the best option in my opinion, starting date being the final one of DOTM.

Personally I'd like a 1955 to 2030 game, but I guess that's not an option.. for now. :)

Stretching MT to 2025 would be great, maybe with 25 minute days? Meicci, do you know why Sami didn't think of this as an option?

If I could choose I'd say 1999 to 2025, the '99 is to keep the mad dog fans happy and the 2025 is to keep me (and others :D) happy.
30 minute games, would be great, it would make quite a difference over all those years and it would also make calculations easier.

Just my two cents...

Everyone knows... Sami's too greedy ;D - just kidding ;) -

He said that for all the calculations and stuff his server loads were too high with 30 minute days, I think...

The -10 variant is quite preliminary in my mind (even no preliminary data`), so cannot really add it for now.

Maybe an idea not to archive this one, as more data becomes available...
But what do you think about the timeframe we are also talking about?
