The Speed World is now open!
« on: October 16, 2020, 03:00:43 PM »

Welcome onboard The Speed World!

This scenario is a special theme game with a faster pace, at 20 minutes per simulated day, and a different setup compared to our normal games.

Settings of this game:
  • Time span: 1995 - 2020, at 20 minutes per game day.
  • Normal difficulty level / Short length scenario.
  • All airports globally and all aircraft models included.
  • The overall play duration of this game is about 4 months.
  • The geopolitical restrictions on additional base airports are disabled in January 2005. Additional bases may be opened at any airport in the whole world after this date. Before this the expansion is limited according to the standard sim rules.
  • The corporate tax rate is set to fixed 25% for all countries.

Special setup for the start-up phase of this game:
  • The initial passenger demand starts at very low levels compared to the era.
  • The availability of used aircraft is somewhat lower than in standard setup.
  • The amount of airport slots is very low at the game start. These will grow rapidly over the first game year.
  • The production rates for new aircraft are also lower than normally, but will grow after the initial phase of the game.
These are all non-standard settings for a new game but due to the faster pace we're adjusting the initial environment to be harder and slower to compensate to give a more meaningful sim experience. If the figures on for example passenger demand look alarming, don't worry, just expand your airline slowly based on what you have at that moment - the demand will grow.

This all means that the normal strategy and normally used aircraft types might not work for you. Do a bit of research on the HQ airport and don't be afraid to do a restart either.

Once we get going, feedback on the game setup is more than welcome at the forums.


If it has been a while since you started at early stages in a major AirwaySim game, here are a few reminders and tips:
  • The game clock is paused for the first day and will start moving after 24 hrs.
  • The used aircraft market will refresh several times during the first static 24 hour day (but you can only make two orders for aircraft during the first day).
  • There is a good supply of used aircraft available to begin with, but the used aircraft market will soon become limited and the popular aircraft types are sold/leased very quickly. Take care when picking the aircraft you plan to use and plan to order aircraft directly from the manufacturers.
  • New aircraft ordering will be available after the time starts to move (= from day 2 of the simulation), but it is of course always recommended to lease several used aircraft to begin with.
  • Be patient with the route sales figures since your Route Image grows slowly. Do not spend all your cash on planes at once, remember to leave a good reserve. It takes time to gain profits and there might be unexpected early problems..
  • Some popular airports will for sure become limited on airport slots soon. This is normal and you should use larger aircraft or other airports in that case. Please remember that slots are only available when the airport infrastructure expands.
  • The passenger demand will grow steadily during the course of the game, and is rather low at the very beginning.
  • Consider joining an alliance from early stages of the game, they are great resources for improving your game play (tips and help from fellow players).
