Early used plane deliveries?
« on: January 28, 2016, 06:53:16 PM »
Is there a delay in delivering initial 2 planes on day 1? Bought 2 used DC6, received 1 but  no sign of the second. Cannot order more today as 2 ordered according to message on used a/c page. So, justwondering is the delivery spaced out over the first day, or has something  gone a bit wrong.

Appreciate any advice you might have.

You've ordered 1x used and 2x new DC-6s. Those new planes will be delivered in about four months.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was  pretty sure I ordered 2 used before the new a/c as I was  told I could not buy any more used a/c on day 1 which is what I expected from playing beginners world games a few times, but could order new a/c which I did. So this not make too much sense to me. If I did not complete second used a/c purchase as I thought, why was I locked out of used a/c market?
Thanks

You can make two orders on the first day*, so if you'd ordered 2x used planes you couldn't have placed the order for the new planes anymore.


* (2 orders for used planes, or 2 separate orders for new planes, or 1x new & 1x used  ... and the new orders can have as many planes as you like, since it makes no difference because money is limited and they are delivered much later)

Again many thanks. It still does not add up though. My first action was buy a used dc6, second action was to buy used DC6. Was then informed as expected I could not buy any more used a/c on day one, but I could place an order for new a/c (2 x dc6) which I did. When I went to schedule routes to the 2 used a/c only 1 was delivered. So, it really doesn't matter too much after day 1. It just makes me wonder how far down the road is my brush with dementia!

Excellent game with incredible support from yourself, and which I enjoy very much.
Thanks

To battle the dementia .. Had to check the logs for this: (times are our local)

28/Jan/2016:20:13:11  - Loaded Used Aircraft listing

28/Jan/2016:20:14:46 - View used a/c #103
28/Jan/2016:20:15:15 - Load the lease contract page for used a/c #103

28/Jan/2016:20:16:44 - View used a/c #340
28/Jan/2016:20:16:48 - Load the lease contract page for used a/c #340
28/Jan/2016:20:17:01 - Confirm lease deal on used a/c #340

= you didn't confirm the lease for the first plane there. (or at least the request never got through, so the plane was never leased)

I appreciate your efforts with this, but I seriously didn't mean to make you spend time on it - more than happy to say it was my error, and push on for the next 60 years or so, maybe even without going broke along the way  :)
