Two more Bugs for client 6.6b

Two problems I discovered with the new client 6.6 Problem 1) - Start up the client, - select fly book flight, - enter the amount of fuel you want and start the flight, - kill and restart the client - the client remembers the amount of fuel we entered we previously and when the flight ends we are not...

Maybe we could do something with competition, flights that have a shorter flight time could get a competitive advantage over flights that have longer times, but if your late your reputation gets a hit.

I would think the time should be based on the times based on the original flight times in the database, and should only apply if the flight is late, most passangers will be happy if they are early.

I just checked this myself, the client clearly says 'STEP 3: enter amount of fuel to be added'.

I belive it was changed to work this way with the new 6.5

My votes for the next things to do to the client are:

- Refueling stops,
- More flight information in the PIREP (landing speed, repuation changes),
- Automatic suspending of non officer pilots who crash.

Actually the hours and miles are only there on your personal profile page not the page that lists all the pilots in the airline, although it does show rating (which to me is more valuable) and you could add up the miles from all the flight logs. I am not opposed to adding these, but what I think wou...

Adding engine type may be useful, as piston engines are less reliable and cost more to maintain than turbine engines and FlyNET could take advantage of that to calculate maintenance costs or when failures happen. Not certain if we need range though.

Not too sure about the landing fee, just another expense on the flights that lowers margins but does not really change things much. An parking fee sounds more interesting but like to hear more of the details.

What is the advantage of putting an aircraft in storage? There is no cost if you leave them at your primary hub and don't use them.

He is right, if you click through to the pilots info page it shows the rating which reflects number of flights but does not show the hours or distance. You could make your own web page which has all your pilots signature images which is what the CBFS does. http://www.cbfsim.org/cbfsimv5/cbfsbb/viewt...

I agree that a loan based system would be better. Maybe to encourage new pilots to join other airlines before starting there own we could limit the amount they can borrow based on how many flights they have flown. (perhaps 1 million per successful flight).

There are a number of pilots here who like to start a 10+ hour long haul flight and once they are up to cruise alt they will go to bed, not watching the console at all until sometime much later when they wake up and land the AC, I would hate for those pilots to get some sort of bonus for that kind o...

SnakeBite, I assume that you are referring to the 'first flight officer', 'flight captain' ranks that appear in the signature image, and you are correct, its totally dependant on the number of flights minus any penalties. While this is not realistic I do think its fair. For most flights the challeng...
