  1. I do plan to do something like that for a different game mode down the road, but thats very down the road
  2. Hey folks, Although I originally planned to have OC worlds only run occasionally, due to the continued quarantine due to the Corona Virus I have decided to run OC II right after OC I is concluded. I think the 15 year timeframe with 5 minute days is pretty good, so I'll keep that. As for what the challenge is I want to put that up to a poll, as well as the time period. I would like to hear your feedback on these options as well as your general feedback about OC I. Do note that for technical reasons, the dates in game would be increased by 100 years, so 1975 would be 2075 for instance. This is because there is currently no way for me to limit aircraft by world, so instead I'm just copying certain planes to the future to model that restriction. Because I recognize that the time frame that you want might be different depending on what the challenge is, I have put those two polls separately.
  3. It goes by seniority of airline not membership, the game doesn't keep track of who joined when. So if your airline is older it would get it.
  4. Most likely, the way alliances work is that when a leader of an alliance leaves it gives the ownership to the most senior member of the alliance. To fully delete an alliance from the world everyone will have to leave at which point it will be deleted
  5. Yeah, I dont like releasing timelines anymore because I always break them. Unfortunately I've been running into some issues with connecting flights that are putting me behind atm. Its one of those things that I don't want to give up on but I'm afraid I might have to. Depending on when/if I do will change the timeline.
  6. That is actually planned in the near future
  7. I think thats probably the problem, which is unintentional. I'll work to make it so that if you're the only airline in your country (or maybe like up to 3) then it will just use the global average.
  8. I am working on creating a limbo mode as part of the anti-cheat system (basically a mode to allow to me 'suspend' an airline such that it doesnt affect other players or generate income or cost anything and is restorable at any time), I might be able to enable people to enable it themselves as well that might achieve what you're looking for. Alternatively I might implement a way for you to 'hand off' an airline to someone else to run it for a bit.
  9. 5th Freedom flights are planned for the future but are not a part of the sim yet.
  10. No, but try wiggling the slider around, sometimes that fixes the UI
  11. Yeah, I am planning on moving it there, you should be able to make the lie flat seats wider than 23.
  12. Hey Folks! Today is the one year anniversary of AirSimWorld going live. It was on this day last year that World A I first went live and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank of y'all for sticking around. I would especially like to thank @Gibus and @erroneous for supporting the project on Patreon and @Peter Marxen and @monchichi for making a one time donation. This project would not be possible were it not for your support. I would also like to thank all of those that have stuck around since the very buggy early days, I realize that the sim was hardly playable at some points and I appreciate all of y'all sticking around. To recognize this, I want to honor the 10 oldest players that are still active (have logged on in the past 2 weeks) by giving them a Veteran status on the sim (as of right now that includes all active accounts created on or before 6/20/19), which both makes them stand out on the forums and discord (do let me know your discord username as I dont know all of y'all on there), and gives them the same perks as the second tier of Patreon for life (including access to early private builds and the cosmetic Patreon perks coming in 0.3). These people have stuck around through many of the unstable times on the sim, including some game-breaking bugs that have seen many leave the sim for good, I appreciate you sticking it out and providing me with valuable feedback along the way. I hope to announce new veterans every year, so stick around. Without further ado, here are the people receiving veteran status for the 1 year anniversary in the order of their seniority: @G.J. (Joined 3/12/19) @sk0step (Joined 3/12/19) @Saip (Joined 3/15/19) @Ryan_D96 (Joined 3/17/19) @frequentflier (Joined 3/19/19) @dragoon20005 (Joined 3/21/19) @AndrzejSzymanski (Joined 4/7/19) @Air Australia (Joined 4/20/19) @Mutation (Joined 5/18/19) @Erik (Joined 6/20/19) Its also worth mentioning that both @KJS607 and @Gibus (Previously @Gibus Airline Group) would have satisfied this criteria, but because they are staff members they already receive those benefits, and should they retire they'll become veterans as retired staff members. With that done a couple of announcements: Staff Changes A few changes to the staff are in order as well: First, as @Northern has been MIA these past couple of months and attempts to reach him have been unsuccessful, he will be retired as a staff member and become a veteran. He was an important member of the data team in the early days and his contributions to the sim will live on. Secondly, I am happy to announce that @Gibus has been appointed as a community moderator. We ran into some moderating issues on Discord recently and Gibus was great in helping setup the bots to help with that, so I decided to keep him on as a broader moderator on the forums and discord. Private Alpha Build I'm still working on finishing up the private alpha build of 0.3 which should be available shortly. Those of you who are eligible to participate will receive instructions by a PM from me here on the forums when it is available so please be sure to keep checking your PMs in the coming days. As of right now, the following are the people who are eligible All Patreon supporters All staff members All veterans @Peter Marxen and @monchichi who will receive access for 0.3 as a token of appreciation Overall this has been an awesome experience and I'm glad to have all of you here to enjoy the sim and watch it grow. Here is to more years to come! EDIT: Forgot to add a few things: 1. There is now a new role for 1 year, 2 year, 3 year, 4 year and 5 year members that will be given to you automatically when you reach those goals on the forum and have logged on in the last 14 days. You will maintain your last role even if you dont log on for 14 days until you logon at which point it will update to whatever role is appropriate at that time. 2. Open Challenge I has been sped up to 5 minute days as scheduled, this change will take place after the next day change.
  13. Hey folks, since it seems like people have a bit more time now due to the corona virus (stay safe y'all!), there seemed to be an interest in a shorter, faster challenge world. So here it is: World Open Challenge I (OC I): Start date: January 1st, 2045 End date: January 1st, 2060 (the whole world will only last about 25 days) Starting cash: $25,000,000 World Speed: 5 min/day (45 min/day until 1 year anniversary announcement (Tuesday)) Sim rules/difficulty: Minimum wage increased to $10 per hour, no new planes after 2050
  14. There are a couple of things at play here, first, is that employee satisfaction doesn't raise immediately so it can take a few quarters for the changes to be reflected, a significant portion of their satisfaction comes from their effectiveness, which heavily depends on a number of other factors (including effectiveness of their co-workers (pilots for instance wont be satisfied at their job if the maintenance people are bad at their job etc.), scheduling of your airline etc.). But generally speaking, give it time before adjusting it too much in order to see the broader effects. Also, keep in mind national averages play a much bigger role in satisfaction than industry averages.
  15. 5th freedom flights are planned for a future update
  16. I mean, for building facilities I dont see any reason why you wouldn't be able to have facilities outside your home country. You're currently allowed to build terminals in other countries and when the facilities update rolls around I dont plan to restrict you from building lounges or maintenance bases in foreign countries (indeed this often happens IRL for cost saving purposes, ie American Airlines maintenance base in Brazil). Hubs aren't an official thing in the sim anyway, since hubs dont really exist formally, a hub is whatever an airline says it is, as far as opening things like offices and stuff there are no plans to prohibit it in other nations. As far as stopover flights, when 5th freedom flights get implemented you wont be required to have a 'hub' in order to implement those flights.
  17. Most of these are already planned in some form or another, with the exception of 4 and 9. For 4, this might be implemented for some sort of a role play game type which I'm looking into for the far future (although I dont see how that game type wont be patreon-only due to the amount of technical resources that would be required to run it) and would have things like evolving political situations, economic crises, groundings etc. that require you to more actively run your airline. For 9, the goal of this sim has always been to create the most realistic experience and political restrictions are realistic. Delta can't just go and start flying between NRT and SYD, which is why you can't do that in the sim. In the case of Virgin, they have international subsidiaries that are incorporated in other countries, and that is something that will be implemented in a future version but its still a separate company legally speaking.
  18. I mean, there is no set value but yeah, $1000 should be high enough
  19. Sure, although for now if you set it unreasonably high pax wont pay that much and it wont impact your IFS score (only things pax use impact IFS score).
  20. I honestly havent thought too much about it yet. It's something I'll look more into when I start to look to implement it.
  21. To be fair one of my goals is to stop the exponential growth...
  22. You might want to contact @KJS607, he's in charge of all the data. He's the easiest to reach on Discord (link at the top)
  23. An ability to transfer a schedule is coming in some form in 0.3
