It's not a problem to show it but I am more worried about the graph becoming unreadable.
How about this?(1) Display the amount of each class of seating for the route within the total capacity bar (the green one).
(Users should still be able to mouse-over each part of the green bar to view exact numbers of total C/F class seats on the route)(2) Display prices for each class of seating, for each airline.
The only thing is that seeing the prices is a bit too much. I mean, seeing how much seats there are for each class is a thing, but seeing their prices. If you could do that, there will be a competion just based on prices and not any more on company image, that would not have an importance anymore.
I agree; to make it a bit more challenging so certain routes don't become micro-managed fare wars, how about displaying a range
of the competitor's fares? How about making the size of the range vary with the number of people you employ in your Route Strategies department?
i.e... the more Route Strategies people you employ, the smaller the price range that is displayed.. hence, you gain a more accurate picture of competitors' prices if you spend more resources on your OWN company
something like this, for example...
This way, you are striking a balance between realism and challenging gameplay: the system doesn't tell you exactly how much the competitors are charging, but it also makes the game a bit more competitive because you have at least some
idea of what others are charging.
