New Beginner's World #2

10.11.2021 - 20:10

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

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=383#game383

 

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 Age of Flight game is now open!

24.09.2021 - 19:00
 

The Age of Flight 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!

The setup for this scenario differs a bit from the other epic games since we start already in the year 1950. The aircraft selection is much more limited and you should use some cheap war-surplus DC-3s and similar to get going.

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

  • Time span: 1950 - 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:

  • The initial setup has been deliberately done with a low airport slot numbers and limited used aircraft supply. Be patient with the start-up phase.
  • A couple of airports (Johannesburg, Moscow SVO, Helsinki) have been "unrealistically" adjusted to have been opened already Jan-1950 to allow them to be selected as HQs.
  • 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.
  • Majority of the used aircraft are DC-3s, C-46s, Li-2s, added with some early versions of DC-6s. Start with short-haul flights this time?
  • 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!


The Speed World is open!

10.09.2021 - 13:16
 

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).

New Beginner's World #2

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

The Jet Age is now open!

27.08.2021 - 10:00

The Jet Age game world is now open!

» Join here!

 

This game starts in 1959 when the first jet aircraft have been just launched and the air travel is taking quantum leaps forward in technology. In The Jet Age game you can be a part of the glorious old days of the air travel and experience the variety of aircraft types and technological innovations in aviation. The game ends in 1991 just before the collapse of communism and other major changes in the world.

The basic settings are:

  • Time span: 1959 - 1991, 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.

Game play related settings specific for this scenario:

  • Some of the airport closed in real life in 1959, such as Stockholm-Arlanda (ARN), Moscow (SVO) and Dubai (DXB) are already open at the start of the game to ease the HQ airport selections and game start.
  • Remember that expansion to other markets outside your home base country is not available, since we are following the real historical geopolitical rules.
  • The used aircraft market consists of piston-powered aircraft, since the first jets have only just entered service. If you are lucky you might find a few Avro C102 or DH.106 Comets, but do not count on it. You will need to start with used piston aircraft and soon make the transition into new jets as you'll expand.
  • Alliances are available to be formed from the first day.
  • Fuel prices might, or might not, follow the real historical developments.
  • Cargo with City Based Demand system included (the passenger demand model still follows the older more static model). Please remember that cargo and passenger figures are rather low at the game start but will grow. Cargo is based on the real economy so it's very limited in the 50s-80s.
  • Achievements can be earned normally from this game.

If it has been a while since you started at early stages in a major AirwaySim games, 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).

The Modern Times is now open!

24.04.2021 - 14:00
 

The Modern Times game world is now open, welcome!

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.

The basic settings are:

  • Time span: 2003 - 2035, 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.

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!
