[-] new scrapping algorithm
« on: January 27, 2014, 04:42:37 PM »
I'm currently trying to find an MD-88 and thus going through all aircrafts in the system... and I see so many aircrafts at an age of 11 that have been scrapped! ... I mean... that cannot be true ... I would want to buy them now. Why haven't they been transfered to storage? ... ok, I see, if an aircraft is very old, you scrap it... if there are hundrets and you cannot sell them, that might be a reason too... but ... in real life, I don't think airliners are scrapped so quickly if they are not even 12 !! ... don't you think you should keep them around a little bit longer? ... maybe the price could go down a little bit instead of scrapping them?

Maybe we can create a sticky forum where people can announce that they are interested in a plane type to avoid scrapping...

I am planning a change to it where the scrap broker would actually put the plane for sale after player scraps it .. but only in certain cases, to avoid a/c shortage of the "popular" models in such early-scrap cases.

(note that scrapping rules were already previously changed and a 5 yo plane with 30% condition is no more scrapped when the player goes bust)

good idea... maybe even a page on which you can register what you'd like to buy... my problem was always, that I didn't want to buy 1 or 2 aircrafts and then in the end not being able to buy more... but with this it might be easier to find ... let's say 30 aircrafts from 10-14 with 5.5 years to next D-check or something like that...

Condition was 4%. It was scrapped 2005-06-08 so well before the changes were in effect.   (after the changes the broker would have repaired it = what you requested is already in force actually)

thats great... and I hope that will bring us a lot more possibilities to use old aircrafts... they aren't that bad at all... sometimes the prices are stupidly high (because we have the huge maintenance costs, that doesn't work together -> in real life, it may be ok to pay that much, but not with the maintenance in the game) ... but if you can buy them from other airlines, it's a great business
