I'm all in for a silly game world.

Soviet era to 1991 with Soviet planes only and can only operate in Warsaw pact countries.

The supersonic idea is great but it would have to be only for a super quick gameworld.

Concorde + Tu144 challenge

That would require some very creative 7 days 7 planes scheduling abilities. Definitively not for beginners. Would be fun, but onlyfor a handful of players : good places for those birds are scare.

Soviet planes only would be fun, but Warsaw pact only would give very, very few bases. USSR can comfortably support only 2 "classic" airlines plus one regional, and the other countries only one, usually low-medium. Or with a serious buff.

indeed a simple "soviet steel challenge" would be interesting. Now, what era?

Regrading the period with most soviet planes, this is probably 65-85. Early jets, but also useful props as the Tu-114 and Il-18. 65 as start date could probably give enough time to gear up for the spike. Now, if it's the usual 10 years, only the 1st, lighter spike would be in-game, so it should be ok.

But this would require some digging in the all-planes file to be sure / to have the best choice available.

Yes, 1965 sounds about right. But I guess the game world could end in the early 90's with the fall of the USSR. Or you continue it with Russian/Ukranian aircraft...but maybe that would be a bit long.

Or maybe a gameworld without Boeing and Airbus. See what alternatives we come up with.

Why not 1960-1995?

This covers the heyday of soviet/russian planebuilding.

...and given the reality that Aeroflot was the world's largest airline in this period means you could inflate demand across the global system and/or expand the base options to other communist countries beyond Warsaw pact that used to just buy Soviet planes (i.e., add in China, Mongolia, North Korea, Vietnam, Cuba...but also allow scheduled flights to the West and developing world.  I.e. you could do Moscow to London or Moscow to Luanda and have enough demand to make the world competitive and interesting (just no ability to base in London). Sami would also need to adjust some game realities so that a route like Moscow-Havana would be a "rock star" route with 2,500 pax per day.

Tu-114 vs Il-62? Doesn't go much further than that, in the 60s/70s. Maybe a bit limited, no?

I was thinking more along the lines of Tu204 for MH and IL96 for LH.... not the 60s/70s..

I would prefer to complete our server move first, and hopefully it is done by end of the month. After that it is the time for a mini-challenge again.

Nearly a month since the server upgrade was complete... any timeline as to new mini challenge and the format?

How about a WW2 (Aug 1945) to now GW  ;D

To get around the issue of lack of choices, flood the market with surplus DC-3 / C-46 (as it happened in real life) , buff the availability of DC-4 / B-377 / L-049 Constellation / Il-12 / Saab 90 etc, and also push the launch date of planes launched in 1945 - 1950 a few years forwards?

Any chance the new GW3 (Modern times) will have passengers on City Based Demand?

GW3 will end in 32 days.

That's a definite no. There will be a round of test scenarios etc. first, and some of the mechanics will need fine tuning & fixes first (in cargo).

Since the GW3 is ending soon, and restarting soon (hopefully), could there be some adjustments made to this new GW?

Since the update to Infrastructure will not likely be ready, can we at least have the traffic level capped at 2 for all the airports, and let them grow as the traffic grows?  (instead of some airports starting at 10 on day 1, even though there are no flights).

Can the economic model be adjusted to fix the "no growth" problem in the US (and a snail pace growth in Japan and Europe)?
300% growth from 1998-2036 should be the target.  I documented in another thread 140% growth between 1998 and 2017.

Also, I am not sure how it fits with the overall CBD scheme, but I wonder if China could get a tiny bump to the starting base.  There is decent demand to China in mid 2030s now, in current GW3, but I think it should kick in earlier than that.

The plan is to finalize the airport expansion model for GW#3, and roll it out to other games too after that.
