Review Heavy Maintenance Costs
« on: July 12, 2018, 10:44:20 PM »
I hope one day, the developers could revisit and adjust the prices for heavy maintenance.
It is very hard to fly planes beyond 20 years of age in this game because maintenance prices shoot through the roof. This is far from realistic as the manpower
cost per C or D check is pretty much constant no matter how old the aircraft is and manpower probably makes up the major part of the overall cost.

The other day I saw a documentary on public German TV on a 15 day C-check of a LH B747-400 registered D-ABVD, age 28 years. At the end, it is mentioned that
the total price was half a million Euros.

In GW1 (which has lower prices overall compared to GW2) my MD-11s (same tech gen as B747-400) are already at 1 milion USD at 5 years of age. I assume they
will develop similar to my DC10s, the oldest of which (23 years) already cost 3 million USD in 1995 prices.

I know this would be boring tedious work but it would make this game a lot more enjoyable and even take some pressure of the production lines.

Thanks!

Mike

Actually, not too much work if one could simply adjust the inflation formula of maintenance on a global scale

Was the Tristar's maintenance costs the culprit of your recent bankruptcy in GW2?  ;D

Anyway, I think the most important part to review is the time of heavy checks. 80 days for VL's. D-check is a bonebreaker - considering that I already showed a 747 D-check that was done in just 35 days

the maintenance costs are certainly way too high. a second dcheck shouldnt be the end of a planes lifecycle.

And all checks should be based on flight hours rather than calendar days.
