Re: Rank System Upgrades

Just had an idea, rather than having minimum x1 flights or minimum ratings for flights. Flight hours are always reduced by sim rate and number of flights is reduced by the rating. So if you need 10 hours and you fly them all at x1 you really need 160 hours to advance. Likewise if you need to fly 10 ...

Re: Rank System Upgrades

I agree that simpler is better. Sam after reading your post I think selecting aircraft types for advancement is unnecessary. I do think there should be a way to not count a flight when there are major penalties, maybe rather than reseting the rank clock on just crash it would be reset on crash, wron...

Re: Rank System Upgrades

I have pretty much finished the rating by rank code and am turning my attention to the automatic promotion rules, and I want to get them clear before starting. My current idea is a long the lines of: Number of flights: (0 - 1000+) Number of hours: (0 - 1000+) this would be a 'standard hour, distance...

Re: Temporary Charter Flights

You can do that, when adding the route select 'Limit Flights' at some number, after that many runs it is automatically deleted.

Edit: Oh you want the pilot to be able to do that, humm, how many others would find that useful?

Re: Automated Pilots

The idea is not dead but keeps getting pushed back. You would think with me working from home I would have more time to code the site but it seems I have less. That hour on the train with no internet every work day was great for getting things done, now with the increased usage on the site taking mo...

Re: Outbound packages

Well in the case of LTFM since it was manually entered and did not come from one of the sims, its size was not set so it was still 'private/military' which does not get the larger packages, but it does have a lot of 40kg packages. I just changed the size to 'International' so it should start getting...

Re: Outbound packages

Well Joe isn't that what happens with any package if the flight isn't flown? I guess the concept would be the same if a package is flown or not regardless if it's picked up at that airport. Yes, you could think of a stricter time frame and/or fee, specifically for packages picked up at a diff airpo...

Real World Airline Name Rule

One of the longest standing rules on this site, from before I was even involved, is that your not supposed to use the names or trade marks of real world airlines without there permission. This is because as a small site we don't have the legal resources to fight any sort of action that an airline wi...

Re: Buying out other airlines

I had forgotten about that how-to post on mergers, I have just removed it to not give anyone any ideas. I have merged some airlines on request from the CEO's but I am being much more restrictive on it, generally allowing it if the value of the two airlines is less than 10B and if above that the rich...

Re: Buying out other airlines

I am sure there are many on this platform whose goal is not to 'win' but to build a great airline, for whom a buy-out would not be welcome.

Re: type request addition

What we need is maximum payload, but we can estimate it based on DOW + pax weight

When you order from the Manufacturers list, the delivery of the aircraft should be instant.
