New Beginner's World #2

27.02.2024 - 14:10

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

Join here: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/?gView=480#game480

 

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 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.

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.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Remember to read the AirwaySim Manual to learn more, and join the Discord chat to meet other players!

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. This game will have the same custom rule as the previous Modern Times game, and there are no size limits in growing the airline outside your HQ airport.

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.
  • 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).

Game setup:

  • Time span: 1992 - 2035
  • Speed of the game is very fast, at only 10 mins per day.
  • The game starts with 100-200 computer-controlled airlines already present in the simulation world, each with 2-20 aircraft in operation. Your task is to enter the existing airline market, find the potential markets and try to beat not just the human competition but also the AI!
  • You can only open an airline in Europe or North America, but you can fly to any destination around the world.
  • There are no real-life geopolitical restrictions when opening additional base airports but your bases must be within the same continent as your HQ airport.
  • The smallest airports are excluded from the game, and the amount of airport slots is limited at the other airports.
  • All aircraft models are available.
  • Your start-up capital is made fully out of loans.
  • Amount of airport slots is very limited at the start, no airport is higher than infrastructure level 3 / 10.

Migration to new server completed

07.12.2023 - 12:29

The previously announced migration to the new server has been now completed.

Please let us know if there are any unexpected errors or if some page/feature does not work normally after this transfer.


Migration to new server

30.11.2023 - 10:06

AirwaySim's web services will be moved to a new server hardware next week.

The preliminary date for the move is Thursday 7th December (in the afternoon EU time), but this might still change. During the move you can expect a short (< 1 hr) downtime of the services, with games being paused at that time.

This change is part of the general all-around upgrading and rationalization of company's server hardware, and also brings in more computing capacity to the backend services of the simulation.
