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.


New Beginner's World #2

24.12.2020 - 09:51

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

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=350#game350

 

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.


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).
  • 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).

Free expansion in The Speed World

05.12.2020 - 10:03

The Speed World game has now no more restrictions on your airline's base airports, and you can now expand to any airport in the world.


Server maintenance on December 1st

30.11.2020 - 11:19

The move to the new server is expected to happen tomorrow, December 1st, at about 08 UTC and it will take about 1-2 hours. During this time all AirwaySim services will be unavailable.

Update: The maintenance is now complete!


Preliminary information - Server maintenance

29.11.2020 - 13:04

AirwaySim's web server system will be upgraded soon. We're moving the services to new dedicated web servers which will provide a bit more speed and resources to our needs for the future.

During the upgrade all games will be paused and website will be unaccessible for approximately 1-2 hours. The update is planned for the upcoming week (30th Nov - 6th Dec) but the exact date will be announced once all preparations are done.

We will continue to use the same ISP and same datacenter as we have for the past three years, and this upgrade is simply a switch to a more up-to-date hardware.


New Beginner's World #1

23.11.2020 - 20:13

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

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=348#game348

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.

Yahoo and Twitter social logins to be phased out

17.11.2020 - 16:22

Due to upcoming changes to the technical systems of our website, the social login integrations for Yahoo and Twitter will be soon removed.

You will still have the option to login using AirwaySim account's own username/password combination, or the social logins from Facebook and Google.

If you are one of the ~30 users who have used Yahoo or Twitter logins in the past please make sure a) your AirwaySim user account has a valid e-mail address and b) you know the password for your AirwaySim user account. (Visit the My Account page to make changes)


History and the Future game is now open!

13.11.2020 - 17:00
 

Welcome onboard the History and the Future scenario!

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 the 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 last week) 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.

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.

New Beginner's World #2

23.10.2020 - 18:09

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

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=346#game346

 

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!

16.10.2020 - 15:00
 

Welcome onboard The Speed World!

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 - 2020, at 20 minutes per game day.
  • Normal difficulty level / Short length scenario.
  • All airports globally and all aircraft models included.
  • The overall play duration of this game is about 4 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 be harder and slower to compensate to give a more meaningful sim experience. 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.

This all means that the normal strategy and normally used aircraft types might not work for you. Do a bit of research on the HQ airport and don't be afraid to do a restart either.

Once we get going, feedback on the game setup is more than welcome at the forums.


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.

  • 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).
