History and the Future game is now open!

29.07.2022 - 18:10
 

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: 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:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The initial aircraft selection is rather limited due to the game start year! Majority of the used aircraft are war-surplus planes like DC-3 and C-46. But there is also a somewhat good selection of longer range and newer planes available. The more modern piston props and first-gen 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.
  • 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!

New Beginner's World #2

22.07.2022 - 22:02

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

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=405#game405

 

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.

Schedule of next AirwaySim games

12.06.2022 - 09:45

Here is an update of the plan of the next AirwaySim game worlds:

The upcoming games will follow the standard rotation pattern where a new Epic length game starts soon after the previous one ends, and we have always three of these worlds running in parallel. Also The Speed World has proven to be popular scenario with modified rules from the standard games, and this scenario will also continue with a new game after the current one ends.

Upcoming game worlds at AirwaySim

  • History & Future: 1950 to 2035, one of our three main epic-length games, play duration 1.5 years. Opening in late July.

  • The Speed World: 1995 to 2030, a fast-paced game with special rules (no geopolitical restrictions), duration 6 months. Starts approximately in first week of August.

  • The Modern Times: 2003 to 2035, a medium-length game with standard settings, duration 8 months. Starts in late August.

  • Beginner's World: 2015 to 2024, the easy scenario, starting once every month, duration 2 months. Starts usually a few days after the previous one ended.


Changes to these plans are possible, and the exact starting dates for each game will be announced separately.

Stay tuned also for development updates on our long-term update plans on new interface and features.

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.

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.  :)
