New Beginner's World #1

31.03.2021 - 06:42

A new Beginner's World #1 scenario is now open!

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=361#game361

AirwaySim has always two concurrent Beginner's World scenarios running (BW#1 and BW#2). They both use the same settings and same time frame.

Our beginner game series is aimed for all newbies and other players wishing to test different playing styles in an easier environment. Duration of one scenario is always approximately 60 real days. The scenario runs for ~10 game years with a speed of 25 minutes per day, and all of AirwaySim's main features are included in these scenarios.

When a BW scenario ends, a new one will start within a few days. The two scenarios are running in parallel so that there is always one BW scenario start every month.


The Speed World is now open!

26.03.2021 - 12:00
 

Welcome to the latest Speed World game!

This scenario is a special theme game with a faster pace, at 20 minutes per simulated day, and a different setup compared to our normal games.

Settings of this game:

  • Time span: 1995 - 2025, at 20 minutes per game day.
  • Normal difficulty level / Medium length scenario.
  • All airports globally and all aircraft models included.
  • The overall play duration of this game is about 5 months.
  • The geopolitical restrictions on additional base airports are disabled in January 2005. Additional bases may be opened at any airport in the whole world after this date. Before this the expansion is limited according to the standard sim rules.
  • The corporate tax rate is set to fixed 25% for all countries.

Special setup for the start-up phase of this game:

  • The initial passenger demand starts at very low levels compared to the era.
  • The availability of used aircraft is somewhat lower than in standard setup.
  • The amount of airport slots is very low at the game start. These will grow rapidly over the first game year.
  • The production rates for new aircraft are also lower than normally, but will grow after the initial phase of the game.

These are all non-standard settings for a new game but due to the faster pace we're adjusting the initial environment to make the initial growth period of the airlines slower. If the figures on for example passenger demand look alarming, don't worry, just expand your airline slowly based on what you have at that moment - the demand will grow.

If it has been a while since you started at early stages in a major AirwaySim game, here are a few reminders and tips:

  • The game clock is paused for the first day and will start moving after 24 hrs.
  • The used aircraft market will refresh several times during the first static 24 hour day (but you can only make two orders for aircraft during the first day).
  • There is a good supply of used aircraft available to begin with, but the used aircraft market will soon become limited and the popular aircraft types are sold/leased very quickly. Take care when picking the aircraft you plan to use and plan to order aircraft directly from the manufacturers.
  • New aircraft ordering will be available after the time starts to move (= from day 2 of the simulation), but it is of course always recommended to lease several used aircraft to begin with.
  • Be patient with the route sales figures since your Route Image grows slowly. Do not spend all your cash on planes at once, remember to leave a good reserve. It takes time to gain profits and there might be unexpected early problems..
  • Some popular airports will for sure become limited on airport slots soon. This is normal and you should use larger aircraft or other airports in that case. Please remember that slots are only available when the airport infrastructure expands.
  • The passenger demand will grow steadily during the course of the game, and is rather low at the very beginning.
  • Consider joining an alliance from early stages of the game, they are great resources for improving your game play (tips and help from fellow players).

Welcome to join the latest AirwaySim airline game!


The Speed World opens this Friday

24.03.2021 - 09:07
 

You requested it, and here it comes: A new round of the special-rules Speed World game starts this Friday at AirwaySim!

This game world has a faster pace than our standard games, this time at 20 minutes per each day. The game starts in 1995 and ends in 2025 and the overall play duration is about 5 months.

All airports globally and all aircraft models included.

The first 10 years of the game will follow the standard rules for airline expansion, but in January 2005 the whole world will be opened for new base airport expansions.

The scenario opens on Friday March 26th 2021 at 12 UTC (that's 8am in NYC and 9pm in Tokyo).


Airline Generations game is now open!

26.02.2021 - 14:00
 

The Airline Generations game world is now open, welcome!

This is one of our three concurrent epic-length airline sim scenarios, starting in the 1950s and running all the way into year 2035. An ultimate challenge for virtual airline managers!

This game world follows the standard settings for long AirwaySim games:

  • Time span: 1955 - 2035, at 30 minutes per game day.
  • Normal difficulty level / Epic length scenario.
  • All airports globally and all aircraft models included.
  • The overall play duration of this game is about 1.5 years.

Game play related settings specific for this scenario:

  • All players who finished the previous scenario with the same name (ended recently) can join this new game with a 5 Credit discount (saving the initial joining fee)!
  • Please remember that this game follows the standard and real-world setup for the economy and political rules. The expansion outside your own HQ country does not become available until the 1990s and onwards.
  • The initial aircraft selection is very comprehensive, and there are many options to choose from in different aircraft size classes in both new and used aircraft. Majority of the used aircraft are "good" models such as Convair 240s or Douglas DC-6s, but you can still also find many of the wartime surplus DC-3s in the mix too if you're looking for a cheaper aircraft to start with. The modern jets are just about to enter service and those will be initially only available from the manufacturers as new aircraft.
  • Despite of the good used aircraft selection, the total number of available aircraft is lower than in a standard setup. New aircraft will be the main choice after the first days. And with them you might see long waiting lists - this is part of the game. Acting as an aircraft broker might be an interesting idea too.
  • The amount of airport slots is higher compared to the History & Future game world, but still major airports might be eventually out of capacity.
  • The initial cost of airport slots is higher than previously to slow down the initial rush to grow.

If it has been a while since you started at early stages in a major AirwaySim game, here are a few reminders and tips:

  • The game clock is paused for the first day and will start moving after 24 hrs.
  • The used aircraft market will refresh several times during the first static 24 hour day (but you can only make two orders for aircraft during the first day).
  • There is a good supply of used aircraft available to begin with, but the used aircraft market will soon become limited and the popular aircraft types are sold/leased very quickly. Take care when picking the aircraft you plan to use and plan to order aircraft directly from the manufacturers.
  • New aircraft ordering will be available after the time starts to move (= from day 2 of the simulation), but it is of course always recommended to lease several used aircraft to begin with.
  • Be patient with the route sales figures since your Route Image grows slowly. Do not spend all your cash on planes at once, remember to leave a good reserve. It takes time to gain profits and there might be unexpected early problems..
  • Some popular airports will for sure become limited on airport slots soon. This is normal and you should use larger aircraft or other airports in that case. Please remember that slots are only available when the airport infrastructure expands.
  • The passenger demand will grow steadily during the course of the game, and is rather low at the very beginning.
  • Consider joining an alliance from early stages of the game, they are great resources for improving your game play (tips and help from fellow players).

Welcome onboard the virtual airline world at AirwaySim and good luck!

Brexit in AirwaySim

27.12.2020 - 09:14

Brexit, UK leaving the EU, seems now to be really actually happening.

Just a quick word to our UK users to let them know that this does not have any effect in their AirwaySim user accounts or costs of usage. The price of AirwaySim Credits is the same regardless if the user lives in EU or not (the taxation rules for UK customers will change after UK leaves the EU but this will not change the prices of the Credits for you).

The model of the Brexit to the simulation itself will be thought after it's clear what the new rules and regulations in aviation actually are.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2021!

24.12.2020 - 13:11

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all virtual airline managers at AirwaySim!

 

This past year has been exceptional in many aspects, and many of us had to adapt to a new world. Many of AirwaySim's plans for this year also changed, but rest assured, AirwaySim will continue to evolve and be with you also in the future.

A big thank you for everyone who have participated in our simulations this year, and hope to see you with us also during 2021!

Be sure to subscribe to our Facebook page for the latest updates, and join our Discord chat to meet other AirwaySim's airline managers.

The traditional holiday discount code is also here again: The code XMAS20 will give you a 15% discount from all Credits purchases until Dec 28th 23.59 UTC.

Dawn of the Millennium scenario is open!

18.12.2020 - 12:00
 

Dawn of the Millennium game world is now open, welcome!

Dawn of the Millennium starts in mid-1970s and takes you through the financial turbulence of 1970s and early 1980s, then towards the growth period of 1990s, and finally reaching the difficulties faced by airlines after 9/11. Overall a very interesting period to manage your airline!

This game world is part of our mid-length scenario series, and follows standard settings for AirwaySim games:

  • Time span: 1975 - 2007, at 30 minutes per game day.
  • Normal difficulty level / Medium length / Standard rules.
  • All airports globally and all aircraft models included.
  • The overall play duration of this game is about 8 months.

Game play related settings specific for this scenario:

  • All players who finished the previous Jet Age game world can join this new game with a 5 Credit discount (saving the initial joining fee)!
  • Please remember that this game follows the standard and real-world setup for the economy and political rules. The expansion outside your own HQ country does not become available until the 1990s and onwards.
  • The initial aircraft selection is very comprehensive, but the vast majority of the used aircraft are still the early first generation jets or even piston-engined models. Typical for this era, there is a big selection of different models and manufacturers to choose from (a total of 60 different aircraft fleet groups are represented in the initially generated aircraft batch!) - why don't you try something different this time? ;)

If it has been a while since you started at early stages in a major AirwaySim game, here are a few reminders and tips:

  • The game clock is paused for the first day and will start moving after 24 hrs.
  • The used aircraft market will refresh several times during the first static 24 hour day (but you can only make two orders for aircraft during the first day).
