New Beginner's World #1

22.05.2020 - 11:43

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

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=331#game331

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.


Asia Challenge scenario is open!

09.05.2020 - 10:00
 

The Asia Challenge game is now open: Join here!

This game focuses on Asia and Oceania: Only airports and routes in that region are available for operations. You can freely expand your airline in this part of the world since there are no restrictions on where to base or expand your airline (full open skies).

The basic settings are:

  • Time span: 2010 - 2025, at 25 minutes per game day.
  • Normal difficulty level / Short length scenario.
  • Airports only from Asia and Oceania.
  • All aircraft models are included.
  • The overall play duration of this game is about 3 months.

Game play related settings specific for this scenario:

  • Fuel prices are fully customized and will not follow the real historical developments at any stage.
  • Additional base airports are customized: You may expand your airline to any available airport in the game (no political limitations). The maximum 10 bases per airline limit is valid.
  • Alliances are available to be formed from the first day.
  • 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.
  • The airport slot numbers follow the new and updated slot system with slot releases happening only when the airport expands (apart from the first game year).

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).
  • There are plenty 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.
  • 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

19.04.2020 - 09:54

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

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=326#game326

 

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 Jet Age is now open!

10.04.2020 - 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 Moscow (SVO) and Dubai (DXB) are already open at the start of the game to ease the HQ airport selections and game start.
  • The used aircraft market is deliberately very dry from jet aircraft, and on the other hand at the new aircraft market some of the traditionally popular piston aircraft are already out of production. You will need to start with older 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 not follow the real historical developments.
  • The aircraft production rates and amount of airport slots are higher compared to the standard "realworld" setting.
  • 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 60s-80s.
  • Achievements can be earned normally from this game.
  • The most popular aircraft groups at the used aircraft market upon game start are this time Douglas DC-6, Lockheed Constellation, Convair 240/340/440, Ilyushin Il-12/14 and Douglas DC-7.

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).
  • 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.
