dc-7 in new aircrafts not available
« on: December 23, 2014, 01:23:23 PM »
Hi all

I noticed that you can't order the dc-7 as new aircraft. However, the older dc-6 is still available.

Is that intended like this?

Many thanks

Depends on
1. If the production line was still open when the game started
2. If it was open - has there been a demand for a certain model to keep the production line open

So as an example - the DC6B could stay open until the end of the Game World if the demand was there...that is how the game is setup

Thank you for the explanation.

I can't confirm but I never saw the Production line of the dc-7 being open.

No problems

It may have already been closed prior to the gamer starting.
Weird that the DC7 line was closed but the DC6 line was open sill...but that is the game

Seems like the DC-6 line just got lucky - historically production ended in 1958, but in this case the randomness in the game seems to have stretched it out past 1960, hence it was still open for us to order from. DC-7 line seems to have been less lucky.

Yes when game opened, DC7 was already closed.  DC-6B was announced as closing and someone jumped into order some thereby extending it...till almost 1963 last I checked.
