shro: Living dangerous with your flightradar24 signature, Greta might throw one of gazz's hand granades your way  :D

Wonder how many more years before "flight shaming" leads to "game shaming" ... hopefully Sami has been secretly
collecting everything on locomotives to bring us RailwaySIm  8)
Or maybe he'll just let our company image drop if we don't plant enough virtual trees per available seat/mile  ::)

what the hidden sense of removing demand pie chart from airport info ?

now it is impossible to search for new base carefully - because we dont know whether it is suitable or not.

it's not impossible. I still do a route planner for the first 2 pages from the new airport (before opening) just to check it's suitable..

Like the changelog said, it's obsolete and not needed anymore. The division shown was the airport's base statistical value and was not directly comparable to the demand / route type proportions actually calculated by the system. And with possible future updates it's even more unnecessary to be shown.

It was still quite useful though. To know if an airport is mostly domestic, will have decent LH, etc. Especially if choosing an airport to start a GW, when you can't look at the route planning and see what's there, and especially if you're not a longterm player who has an ok idea of what demand exists.

Never saw an airport that said 100% domestic have any international routes though for example.

how should I check whether airport is basically suitable for me ?

make hell of clicks via route management ? just to find out that there is no LH demand ? instead of just looking into piechart ?

Indeed, it will be highly missed. We fanatics know pretty much which airport is suitable (or not), but casual players will be having a hard time. I understand that it won't matter at all once city based demand is implemented...but it isn't yet! So please, can we have the pie chart back?

RuneF

Yea this makes the already clickomania game more clicky, i do apriciate the research part burt now its getting a bit to much. I dunno if the CBD system is planned as whatever airport can get lh or domestic depending on who starts to fly, or fly where, how much, but that isent so logical compared to the real world. Then u got to add stuff as financial forces, gov intencives, infrastructure etc. Removing it now before that is the scheme i think is premature.

The pie chart was a useful guide for finding new bases (even if not "perfectly accurate").. where I'm based, not such a big deal in 1988, but in larger markets, and when the EU opens up, I'd better prepare some "Cortana... next airport" preset commands! Sorry to see that go.

I am not a fan of eliminating the minimum 0.05% interest payment on money in the bank. Since AWS does not model things like airlines with wholly-owned subsidiaries, owning (or partially owning) other airlines and support organizations (regionals, Delta Ground Services, LGS SkyChefs, etc), stock prices (with buybacks and dividends) the base interest payment allowed for a substitute way for an airline to "park" its excess cash.  My current airline has around $18 billion in free cash with my only liabilities being balanced due on aircraft purchases. A real airline would be doing something with this money. Taking away that 0.05% is a big step away from reality, in my opinion.

DanDan

Sami, hope you are all well (even if possibly flying less)!

Wanted to check if we can have a 747-400M for a future GW ppplleeeaassee? Would be really a great addition. And maybe a correction of the whole family in regard of fuel consumption.

Plus, any idea on when we can expect the new seating model to be implemented?  :-[

Can we help with any? Like sort out data for the 400M?

groundbum2

I couldn't tell from the demo screenshot, but I hope the underlying route changes allow

x easy 7 day scheduling, ie create a route, say EGLL/KLAX, then assign it to an aircraft group that presumably has 7 planes in it
x allow cargo and pax loads, including LH/LC/LS splits, to be different for each leg
x ideally put a route into a price "group" such that a group could have a % +/- from default pricing
x possibly put routes into aircraft groups such that a group could contain spare aircraft to cover B/C/D checks..

If the route changes don't make 7 day scheduling embedded in AWS then I'd have to wonder what the benefit is for the player?

DanDan

x data for inbound/outbound flights stored on different levels, so that one can sort easier for load factors (especially on assymetric services).
x possibility to group flights/routes (its annoying to change H/S/L splits or blocked seats when you have to do everything 7 times!)

groundbum2

I didn't see slots on the screen, I presume it's there somewhere..

I may be having a bad brain day, but after the update forcing everyone to login again, I'm not seeing anywhere to check a box for a cookie to remember I'm logged in. So if I check the site again 6 hours later, I have to login each time.

The 'permanent' login is on by default when using the full login page. If you check the "public computer" checkbox then it gives you only 1 hr session (which extends if you are still online after 45-50 mins).

But at the header's quick login dialog there is no space for the checkbox so it only gives you the non-permanent login.

(==> login for example from the front page or airwaysim.com/Login/ to get the permanent session)

sanabas

That'd be it. First two times I logged in from the forum header, because it's always the forum page I open. 3rd time I went to the actual login screen instead to look for the permanent button, and so it's now staying logged in.
