[-] Clicking "Money" links to income statement
« on: April 09, 2015, 03:21:55 AM »
I'd have expected it to go to cash flow statement instead, because that actually tells you about cash...

Always gone to the income statement from that, as long as I can remember... So not really a bug, but could be changed perhaps

Thing is, the income statement is useful more often than the cash-flow statement, at least for me. Most players are used to it.

I notice there are 2 buttons leading to the same screen : money & the amount of money just below. One could be branched to the cash-flow, but we need at least one still directing to the income statement. It's too useful to be given up.

Sorry, not liking the change. I heavily used the cash link to access the income statement. I really have no use for the cashflow statement in day to day operations...

Keep it at income statement. Most useful of the financial pages.
Cashflow and balance statement are rarely needed.

I'm quite happy with the change. It's much more logical that clicking on cash takes you to the page where information about cash flow is.

Rohit, if you want to see how your airline is doing, you need the income statement, not the cashflow statement.

Cashflow statement is not actually of any use in day to day operations.

I don't think you've been active since the accounting change, so you've yet to see how this change is rather poor from a game play and UI perspective.

I can only second the complaints. Cash flow page is useless for management, it is only a detail page that one needs to access every now and then and not nearly as heavily as the income statement.
Sami will be able to easily see that from the page views.

Amen. Cash-flow is useful on certain circumstances(like preparing the 11th September). Income statement is always useful. That's why having seperate uses for both buttons(the "money" label and the real number below) did seem optimal to me. Game is getting a clickfest with this setting.


EDIT : thanks for doing it. It's now good for everyone.
