Sami, is it too late to add a few more early bird aircraft for the upcoming 1950s GW?

I missed the Cargo Test GW.

But I think significance of the Cargo is that it runs on the new City Based Demand engine.  So hopefully some fine tuning will bring City Based Demand forward a few steps.

It would be great if connecting flight feature was present (or added) in the GW.  That was the basis of many overnight cargo carriers (FedEx using their hub in Memphis.)

The plan is for it to do so but the test Worlds has not been with that function but Much can have happened over the last year.

1. In real world, cargo airlines and freighter aircraft can fly between as well as carry cargo among different countries that they don't have any relations with, and is apparently a large part of some of those airlines' operation. Can we expect similar lifting of restriction in the cargo game world?
2. And one more thing I want to ask about the previous cargo test gameworld is that, in real life generally cargo won't care how many stops they have made along the way before they reach their destination. Is this same as the way how the previous test game model tech stops, or do they follow some other different pattern like the one for passenger in AWS?
3. Would be nice to see Super DC-3 in the game.
4. As 1950 is only 5 years after the WWII, can we expect to see an exceptionally large quantity and exceptionally cheap DC-3 available on the used market?
5. How about aircrafts produced in late 1940s like Avro Tudor and Handley Page HP.81 Hermes? Avro Tudor ended production in 1949 but it should be something to be available in UM, the Hermes was still in production in 1950.

I tested it in the cargo test game, and cargo load factor was not affected by either the too small penalty or tech stops. While passengers were rightfully deserting my plane.

Only Sami knows, but I fear it's too late for parametring new planes in such a short span of time.

In the 1950 scenario I believe the choices of aircraft to buy will be slim . I anticipate a scarcity of DC 4, and DC 3, C46's as well . It will be way too early for convairs and DC 6's….so having as many choices as possible for the first 5 years of the game is paramount ( in my opinion). There fore  A SNCASE Languedoc would help alleviate the need of bidding up the DC 4 prices to astronomical levels. It's not that good of an aircraft , but it has a better renege then the DC 3 and carries more pax. Anybody thoughts on this …Sami ?

Actually the amounts of C46s, DC3s, CV-240s and Vikings are endless. Plus, pax demand is rather small in the first few years. Outside of the top airports, you wont need aircraft bigger then a DC3 for the early years leading up to 1955ish.

From the mid 50s onward, the aircraft choices open up.

OK Great I was afraid that the DC3 and DC4  being aircrafts of choice would be prohibitive …I would be stuck getting DC2 . I would rather use the Martin 202, 404  then the convairs, but don't remember when they were delivered. I assume if the convair 240 is available so will be the Martin 202.
Still it would be nice to try out the languedoc …better then some other a/c available 
Thanks for replying !

The Connie is not a bad plane, but in AWS it is less desirable than the DC-6 due to speed and size. I would expect new orders for the DC-6 and Connie to be near identical in this game, with the Connie winning out with airlines that need the 1649's range and the DC-6 winning out where speed and capacity are prime needs.

The TU-114 was a beast before the changes were made to it. Now it is average at best and the slow production rate severely limits its usefulness. But, if you can get a supplier to help you with it, it tends to be less popular and you can get an acceptable number of frames pretty quick.

Just noticed that this rebooted GW2 is scheduled to start before the current GW2 has finished. Is that an oversight?

Planes in early games.
Well, if you don't like what's available pick what will suit your future plans so you have airport slots booked, lease on shortish leases, and replace as demand or newer types come up. You won't loose much money, you will have slots, at least on one end of your target routes, so maybe 2 aircraft to replace your longer routes with faster flight times.

Have to start it already now since weekend is the midsummer here and won't be here weekend (other option would have been to push it forward with a week).
