Are you guys planning to add random events to the game? Typically any sim would have some kind of random events happening, like earthquakes, wars, or personnel strikes, events that may affect the work flow of an airport? What about weather? Will there be any random weather effects, fog, snow blizzards etc.? This would definitely add a nice touch to the game.

I think there are only real-world events in the game so far as wars and stuff is considered. Of course flights can be delayed randomly due to technical issues and airport traffic reasons. I think weather is not considered on its own at least right now. Who knows what features will come later. Remember that in an airline simulator weather will only affect how flights are cancelled or delayed so you wouldn't actually see any graphical effects!

Their was a thread about this suggestion. I believe it also covered Aircraft accidents due to poor Maintainence, delays due to weather etc..

Also an interesting thought is the service factor, what if our airlines get a star rating for service (similar to the SkyTrax system).. the lower the service stars, the worser image, thus lower LF on your flights. Of course Price can also be given a rating, so our LCC's and cheapo airlines don't miss out on the game due to slack service... just a thought.   :)

I like the weather idea, and I think, EVERY NOW AND THEN! if an airlines maintainence is slightly dodgy and there's a strong wind or bad storm (Such as when the A340 Air France crashed in Toronto) a plane is brought down  ;D

And there should be a graph which say how many crashes have happened during the years, and the top 25 airlines for crahses (if that many have crashes  :laugh:)

Do you think this topic should be moved to "Feature Requests"

Probably a good idea as thats what it is  :D

Concord crashing, and all the other major (and minor) events would definitely add realism here.

And we ALL agree... "The more realistic, the better!"  ;D
