History and the Future game is now open!
« on: July 29, 2022, 06:08:47 PM »

Welcome onboard the History and the Future scenario!

This is one of our three concurrent epic-length airline sim scenarios, starting in the 1950s and running all the way into year 2035. An ultimate challenge for virtual airline managers!

This game world follows the standard settings for long AirwaySim games:
  • Time span: 1950 - 2035, at 30 minutes per game day.

  • Normal difficulty level / Epic length scenario.

  • All airports globally and all aircraft models included.

  • The overall play duration of this game is about 1.5 years.

Game play related settings specific for this scenario:
  • Please remember that this game follows the standard and real-world setup for the economy and political rules. The expansion outside your own HQ country does not become available until the 1990s and onwards.

  • A couple of airports (Johannesburg, Moscow SVO, Helsinki) have been "unrealistically" adjusted to have been opened already Jan-1950 to allow them to be selected as HQs.

  • The initial aircraft selection is rather limited due to the game start year! Majority of the used aircraft are war-surplus planes like DC-3 and C-46. But there is also a somewhat good selection of longer range and newer planes available. The more modern piston props and first-gen jets are just about to enter service and those will be initially only available from the manufacturers as new aircraft.

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).

Welcome to join the latest AirwaySim airline game and have fun!
