Check my math for me, Sami
« on: April 21, 2009, 05:23:45 PM »
Further to no planes being available on restart...
I would like you to explain this to me:

Startup cash: $4,000,000.00
Available Loan: $1,560,000.00
Total: $5,560,000.00

767-200ER used lease pickup price: $5,950,000.00
Shortfall: -$390,000.00

And yet at 22:00 of the original day, these planes were leased.
How is that possible?
By the way, the second 767-200ER that was there was over 6 million to lease.

The price for the 767's is not the same for each individual plane .....

Engines, weight, age, condition all affect the price. Even with 100% same specs the prices of individual planes may vary quite much, let's say 20%.

Yes, I agree... however, these were two specific planes that I attemped to lease - and could not because of the price.
Obviously someone else was able to somehow, because they both disappeared off the used list prior to the end of the startup day.

They were the only 2 767-200ER's on the roster.

Well, I guess there is no answer coming on this... so I have no choice but to believe that somehow, certain players had access to more money than most of us - for whatever reason.
If there is no technical explanation available, the practical one applies... how else can you look at it?

You probably had to pay CEO salaries like I did before I even knew the game had a surprise restart. Don't you just love surprises  >:(

No, the same thing happened with me. I even purposley bankrupted and couldn't pay for a 767. The only one I could afford was one with a range between 3000-3999. (can't remember and can't be bothered to look.  :-[) Being based in Johannesburg, it really irritates me now that I can't fly as far as I want.  >:(

One of the first things I always do when the game starts is drop the CEO salary to nothing.
The second is take out the maximum loan.
The third, buy aircraft.

After that is done, start your routes and marketing campaign.
That's my procedures anyway.

Just thinking, but was manually restarted by Sami, could it have been possible, that those players who had a better credit rating than B could have had it also after the reset? So that the bank credit ratings wouldn't have been changed for some reason? This could explain, why others got more money.
