[-] Time before an aircraft must be scrapped
« on: February 08, 2014, 02:30:19 AM »
Before the new accounting system was introduced it was ok for me to scrap aircraft after a maximum of 35 years.

However, now with the new system we should be make sure to fly it 25 years to get the maximum amount of tax out of it - so the best marker and the forced last marker for flying an aircraft is just 35 years. Why's that? Why can't this be 40 years or 45 years?


So, my request is to raise the limit from 35 years an aircraft must be scrapped to 45 years.

I agree.  No point in having an arbitrary limit, although the escalating MX costs will kill your dreams of keeping your comets alive until the end of GW4 curse :)

I actually wanted to fly Starliners until 2020 to skip the rescheduling.

Of course I thought about that. I mean, I was awake and in front of AWS like 22 hours since last Saturday. If a nuclear explosion would destroy sami's server I would be able to rebuild the gameworld 1:1 just out of my mind!1111

35yo is the current design limit there, and no plans to change it as it would have no real benefits but would change rather many smaller things
