New Beginner's World #2

22.05.2022 - 17:33

A new Beginner's World #2 scenario is now open!

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=401#game401

 

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.


Support ticket system back online

26.04.2022 - 06:50

We had some issues with our email systems recently, and thought they were all good and fixed, but apparently the support ticket system (from "Contact Us" page) had still some issues after our recent server migration.

These are now fixed, and everything should be operating normally. If you have recently contacted us, you may expect a reply shortly.

Issues with our email systems

16.03.2022 - 12:17

We have noticed that our support ticket system and other emails have been unreliable for the last few weeks.

If you have tried to contact us, and have not received the automated ticket activation or other reply from us, please contact us directly at support (at) airwaysim.com

The issue is now fixed, and you might also now receive all the status updates, credits order receipts and other similars what might be in the delivery "backlog", so you may receive suddenly multiple emails from us, but it is just the system catching up of any undelivered news we may have for you - apologies for the delay in delivery.


The Speed World is open!

24.02.2022 - 17:08
 

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 30% for all countries.

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

  • The initial passenger demand starts at low levels compared to the era.
  • The long-haul passenger demand is extremely tiny at the start-up, but will increase over time. You should start with short routes.
  • The availability of used aircraft is somewhat lower than in standard setup.

This special setup is made to make the initial stages of the game a bit slower, and to let you start with a perhaps different strategy from the usual.

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 next Thursday

20.02.2022 - 18:28
 

The winner of our poll for the next short game is The Speed World. This simulation scenario will open on Thursday February 24th at approximately 17 UTC.

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

The setup of this scenario follows a similar theme like the previous Speed World rounds, but with a few twists. The biggest change is that there is only very minimal longhaul passenger demand at the start of the game. The longhaul passenger demand will increase when the game progresses during the first years. The number of used aircraft available at the start of the game is lower than usual.

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.

All airports globally and all aircraft models included.


Server downtime today

12.02.2022 - 15:40

We had a rather long downtime on our servers today, but now we are back online!

The reason for this outage was an unexpected problem in the server operating system upgrade process.

This task had been well tested before it was started, and the exact same upgrade had been performed to two other production-use servers at our disposal (which use the same configuration), and naturally also by hundreds of others people worldwide before us, so the full expectation was it would also work within the normal 5 minute timeframe here too. But for some unknown reason the process failed for us and left the servers unreachable (it appears to be bug in the operating system upgrade process).

This failure triggered the need to start troubleshooting processes for the upgrade which took over an hour, but this path also unfortunately seemed to lead nowhere, or it would have taken considerably more time. After this we made the decision to proceed with a total rebuild of the server environment, which took another few hours, but luckily went without problems since this is something we're prepared for and have a pre-planned procedure.

All systems should be now restored, and no data loss at all should have happened, and the simulations have resumed from the point they were left at in the morning when the upgrade started. Please inform us if some system isn't operating normally.

Sorry for the prolonged downtime - that's very unusual from us as you might know.  :)

The Modern Times is now open!

The Modern Times scenario is now open!

This game lets you take control of your airline in the present and future era. You will begin after 9/11 when the airline business starts to recover again, and can manage your airline all the way until year 2035. In this game world we will exceptionally try out a new custom rule for the airline expansion, and there are no fixed limits in growing the airline outside your HQ airport.

The basic settings are:

  • Time span: 1998 - 2030, at 30 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 8 months.
  • Special rule: There is no "aircraft based outside HQ" limitation - you may grow your airline larger than in the regular games (but the normal real-world geopolitical basing limitations do still exist)

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.
