[ok] Iraq War
« on: November 26, 2019, 12:23:05 PM »
Hello Sami,

the iraq war, imho:

1) there should be "news" about it (even though people dont read that anyway, but there is some about the berlin wall, increasing passenger traffic weirdly, but not a word about basically a country getting unplayable)
2) it seems random, that there is a vast number of wars between 1955 and 2020, but really only one is coded. therefore it should be warned about when people decide to base in such a country. (because people dont really get it: https://www.airwaysim.com/forum/index.php/topic,83178.0.html)

i consider it a bug, but if you want, you can of course think of it as a feature request.
below: the passenger numbers of "iraqi airlines" in GW2 - i doubt they will exist for much longer & the current news in GW2

We do need some warnings or news articles - this is my first time seeing the Iraq War in game and the implementation is very poor.

The game impact was a complete surprise to me and I feel very bad for the airline based in Iraq.

We just don't know what's going to happen. The world is rather unstable those days, and access to resources is more strategic than ever - a good recipe for that kind of unplanned changes in demand.

No, Iraq is the only country to suffer a war and be almost wiped out. Libya is fine.

How is this a bug or something to complain about? It's rather realistic seeing as Baghdad International Airport was being used as a military airport back then...

The whole Iraq needs a work over. It would be a cool challenge for any player but:

- No other airports exist in Iraq  in the game (Basra, Mosul, Erbil..)
- Only Baghdad's new airport is modeled, so prior to the 80s, there is no air traffic whatsoever in the game.

It could be a great idea if all major Iraqi events were programmed into the game but with a slightly randomized timeline:

0. Properly modeled air traffic from 1950s onwards with int. & dom. traffic demand
1. Iran-Iraq war in the 80s (reduced traffic)
2. First Gulf war (complete shut down)
3. Embargo period (no fly zones - very little traffic)
3. Second Gulf war (complete shut down)
4. Slow but steady revival of air traffic
5. Thrive of air traffic from the Kurdish airports (Erbil, Suleymania)

A player might develop Iraq and then slim down operations during the crisis periods (Leasing out the fleet?) then re develop
the network after the wars and with greatly increased pax numbers and int. traffic from Kurdish airports (perhaps keeping previous
route image levels as a bonus. Airlines stationed in Iraq could be given preferential interest rates (simulate state aid) as a bonus.

Anyways, there is always a lot one could do...never ending possibilities.....
