Game talk - Airline Generations (GW #1) / Re: Demands drop

Actually, the 757 fleet is in operation, the A320 fleet has been idling. I made a plan to replace the B757 with the A320. I was about to get rid of the 757 right before my funds started to deplete like crazy. Thanks for the warning tho.

This would certainly take the hassle out of selling a fleet and removing the misery of getting scrap prices at the same time.

I would think that the offer price would have something to do with the appeal of the plane as well and these attributes would adjust the offer somewhere between fair value and scrap. For example(s):
1. Age of the plane (newer plane is closer to fair, older closer to scrap).
2. Economic viability of the plane type based upon year (A brand new DC-6 in 2010 might as well be scrap). Could be measured by number of years since production line closed.
3. General popularity of the type (could be measured based upon production line queue, proportion of planes under 10 years in service vs for sale, new production price indicator, etc.)
4. Number of planes being sold at one time (the more you sell, the less per each you get, as it's that many more than have to be "placed" by AI brokers). Note to do this one you'd want to do a look back over a few years to prevent players from selling 5 per game day/week/month to get the higher price.

As the offered value approaches scrap, there could be a limit where the broker would decline to make an offer or specific attributes where the broker would decline to make an offer.

Then there's the consideration of plane flipping - brokers doing cheap sales could end up buying it back for more. Perhaps a minimum holding period would be helpful here, though, airlines with brand new planes coming off the line that they can't afford to pay for could be a good use for this...

Oh man. My company is deep in red due to the attacks on September 11, 2001. I did not see it coming the pax demands tanked. :\ Lesson learned. Be sure to have a lot of cash for cushion before September 11, 2001. Damn. I am not giving it up until the greedy mega banks take my company over.

You have 4 fleet types and are paying a big penalty for it--park your A320 or B757 fleet and your expenses will go way down immediately.

I'm going to go ahead and beat a dead horse again.  None of this will work with the underlying "fair market value" numbers being based on a static value versus one responding to actual market conditions.  I bought Il114 in HaF for ~$5m that had a "fair market value" of $10m.  Even if the value were something in between scrap value and "fair market value" it can be used to print money (or in the Il114 case, basically own/operate it for free for many years) and abused just like the asset-backed loans can be exploited today.

I like the idea of clicking a button to sell it immediately to a broker, but unless the brokers are smarter than they are today it's not going to work as intended.

i think it is a quick fix. dont care much about the prices, but implementation should be rather a small thing to do and would help with erroneous purchases and such. i think that it should be close to scrap price somewhere, or the "minimum minimum price" you were able to offer for on the used market... but since you cant do that anymore, it would at least remove parking costs and give a token amount.

I don't mind the idea - and it seems like it would be fairly easy to implement. The one point I would raise is it should only be an option for say planes with a certain condition (>80%?) and less than 6 years old or something. The thing I can see happening is a lot of people auto-dumping planes right before the first D-check. So alternatively, maybe the plane would need at least 2 years before the next D-check to be eligible?

Also, if people can auto-sell past year 10, no one will scrap, and instead will sell. Now maybe that's a good thing (personally I think it would help the UM a lot).

Just a few thoughts to consider, but overall I think it's a positive idea.

there's much higher priority items we've asked for... is my opinion.. in a world where AWS needs more developers working on it..
