Took a few airlines to get things going but my third attempt and I seem to be trending to the right direction. Didn't bankrupt myself right away. My losses are thinning each week as my company image rises. Selling more tickets, I think when I get to ~80% or so pax capacity on my routes I'll be firmly in the green.

Do I wait until that point to start raising my prices? Do I stay aggressively priced until my pax capacity is that high or is there a company image/route image total I should target before raising prices?

Do you have some cash lying around and can't think of anything worthwhile to do with it?

Here's an opportunity! Buy us some Russian crap and get paid a handsome profit when you sell them to us.

How does that sound? We are looking for as much as 50-100 frames.

Contact the CEO of Alice Inc. today for the specifics !

Ive just read this topic, and strongly agree with any of the points made. I tried to mentor a few players earlier, but kinda gave up because without fuller knowledge of the world and market, and without the ability to actually make significant changes I always felt unable to help very much.

Mentors should be given more trust and get to see more information about the gameworld atleast, if not being able to directly open routes and buy/lease planes to explain end help newer players.

Game talk - The Speed World / Re: Shall we re-run The Speed World?

Alternatively, I'd suggest when CBD for pax is ready we rerun the Speed World as the first game world with CBD for pax to test it all out--the accelerated speed will make it much easier to tell what is working/not working and help make things more competitive with more players/interest/etc.  I think it would also be a good place to relax the UM rules so it's not "who's online the most" as instead of 3 aircraft per week max with 2 per day, it could be modified to be based on max DELIVERY of 3 aircraft per week--if I have the cash I can order 15 used aircraft today, but the delivery schedule will be 3 per week for the next 5 weeks.

I think with only 87 players left towards the end game (from 200+ in the beginning), it is pretty clear that there was a waning interest. Similar to some opinions here, the game is too fast that it is almost like a race for time. It might work better if you can only open a base in the same country.

I think this world would have potential with a few changes. I think normal basing rules would help, to reduce spam. Additionally, 15 mins is just to fast, 20 would be a good middle ground.

I also think a longer gameworld, maybe 40-50+ ideally would get more interest as players would get to build up their airline rather than race against the gameclock to spam out schedules. I would personally join a say 1980-2035 speed world, even if it were still 15 mins, if enough players could remain active to keep the competition up.

If the world is a spamfest where there is little to no competition from day one the waning interest would likely repeat.

Announcements / Re: AirwaySim Changelog

European Common Aviation Area model added

A new significant feature has been added today to all game worlds, apart from History and the Future game. This feature expands the model of common European aviation market with the agreements made recently in the real world.

As you know the European Union member states have been able to freely expand their airlines within the EU states but these ECAA agreements add new states to this common market even though they are not EU members.

Updates
  • ECAA model added.

  • The ECAA member states act like they'd are full/normal EU member states in regards of base airport and expansion selections.

  • Each of the additional ECAA member states (12 in total) join to the system according to what has happened in the real life. The agreements are signed around 1999 to 2010 and become active between 2002 and 2020 depending on the state.

  • Enabled Dashboard news for all of these political developments. The news item is posted when the agreement was signed in real life, and then a few years before it becomes active and on the date the agreement is active.

  • The member states in the ECAA agreement and when the treaty has taken force:
    • All EU member states (enrolled automatically when they join).

    • Norway in December 2017

    • Iceland in December 2017

    • Albania in December 2017

    • Bosnia and Herzegovina in December 2017

    • Kosovo in December 2017

    • Macedonia in December 2017

    • Montenegro in December 2017

    • Serbia in December 2017

    • Georgia in August 2020

    • Moldova in August 2020

    • Switzerland joins in June 2002 [n.b. not actually an ECAA member but a similar agreement is in place, thus modelled within the ECAA scope for simplicity]

    • Gibraltar in September 2006 [n.b. not actually an ECAA member but a similar agreement is in place, thus modelled within the ECAA scope for simplicity]

  • Expanded the Manual's Base Airports chapter with explanations of the exceptions to the basic rules: https://www.airwaysim.com/game/Manual/Office/Bases/#Exceptions

    I played the first one but not the second one. It just moved too fast for me to keep up. An entire game month happens while you sleep.
