[ok] UM brokers only buying minimum spec a/c
« on: January 22, 2023, 10:48:09 AM »
As the title says. In the modern times a whole lot of A359s are entering the market at the minimum spec with 0 variation.
Perhaps the brokers should consider that the higher spec'd variants might also be a good purchase?

Do you mean the aircraft that AI is buying from manufacturers, or AI is selling in thr market, or AI is buying from players?

Ordering new from manufacturers and then placing them in the UM at their own rythm.

Thing is, you end up with several, say, low-ranged A310-300s which are mostly useless.

Okay, not really a bug. But could add a small randomizer there to pick some variant of the choices. Maybe...

Well, I agree with my distinguished comrade here. Low-specs variants are nigh_on useless. There is a reason why most players go to high-spec ones (well, several, But just one : versatility). IA should take mostly only high-specs birds.

AI buying from manufacturers

Okay, not really a bug. But could add a small randomizer there to pick some variant of the choices. Maybe...

If the game were to simulate real world dynamics it would order in proportion to what gets bought most by customers. I.e. if the std vs the IGW variants sell in a ratio of 1:2 that would realistically also be the broker ratio.
Perhaps even more to the IGW variant given that it offers more versatility on the UM..

Also. Yay post 1000  :P

Adjusted, they now randomly order some of the variants.
