Base cost odd?
« on: June 27, 2015, 11:49:42 PM »
Why is it that a small base will cost $500k and a medium base is like $1.2 million but a large or extra large jumps to $8 million and 8.5 million. The price makes no sense what so ever! Any ideas ?

Extra large should cost a lot more because you can earn a lot more with long haul - but you are right, the big jump should be from 3 to 4 not from 2 to 3.

What makes even less sense is you can't use large planes at a medium base. Which forces you into the next tier. I could debate all day the size of a DC9-15 as large but the game says it is. I think the cost structure needs to be looked at

The jump between levels 2 and 3 is intentional since the respective difference in possible profits and potential scale of operation too is very large.

level 1 bases should be dirt cheap, btw. Level 1 planes are really toys that don't make a lot of money. I find level 2 & 3 properly balanced. Level 4 could be slightly costlier, as said by infinity.

Ok I understand the need for profit but a jump of 7 million dollars between the two is a little extreme. Nor is there any where in which we can see which type of planes can be used in a medium base vs large. If the definition of which planes can be used is based off the classification of large plane vs medium or extra large this would seem unreasonable because a plane can be deemed large and hold 80 people. In respect that's not really large at all, if large is deemed a capacity over say 100 then this system would make sense.
