Hi Everyone,

I run Roman Airways, the Italian flag carrier on R0. 

I was perusing the used aircraft market today and came across 24 Boeing 707-320B's for sale. It being 1965 and 707's being the aeronautical equivalent of gold dust, I bought all of them. 

However, when looking at the aircraft details, something caught my eye. 

Instead of the usual Pratt & Whitney JT3D's, the 707's I bought have 4 United Technologies PW306B's...With a fuel flow of 10,000 instead of 35,000 for the P&W's. 

I...I don't know how this is possible. I checked the aircraft's history, but they were bought by an airline that was then subsequently deleted. 

What...What should I do? I'm aware that it's unfair to have 24 707's with vastly improved fuel flow compared to other players. Did another player somehow hack the game to get this? 

Photo proof attached. 

 

Have a nice day!

I have figured out how this exploit works and will be reporting it to the developers. Please do not ask me for details, and please do not cheat.

I think -- and I could be entirely wrong -- but I think I know how the original owner pulled this off.

I also suspect if I tried to verify my suspicions then I would be banned, as I imagine the original owner was.

I suggest you just scrap them.

I tested my theory and I was indeed entirely wrong. I'll try a few other things to see if I can replicate this.

Okay, maybe I wasn't totally off base. I think I've figured it out, but I need to test it out.

In the event I find the exploit, who would the best person to contact be? Yuxi?

That's odd, and definitely an advantage. But nothing like running a spam line like Alpha Waffle does.

Ha! Sure enough, in R0, there are also a bunch of VC.1 Vikings for sale with PT-6As.

 

I was scrolling earlier, saw the PT-6 model and thought "What? PT-6? On a plane that old? Huh." and then went about my day.

 

Turns out it was indeed the same person who modded the 707s. What a coincidence. I'll buy them all and scrap them.

Oh wow, and a bunch if Il-14s of various flavours with PT-6s too. That's so funny. Scrapped!

It seems this person did more than I thought. I'm going through my planes and finding many of them have very wrong engines. Tu-114s with PT-6s for example. Not cool. Cheaters suck.

I really can't overstate just how little your opinion means to me.

Now that is odd. Which world/airline is this?

That's really interesting. The game has safeguards to prevent ordering aircraft that aren't yet available... at least, it doesn't seem to be possible in the same way that adding different engines is possible.

 

How strange.

 

I wonder if Yuxi will read this thread before banning me when he sees all the illegal nonsense I've been up to. It's purely academic, I promise.

I've never posted in all my years here, but I have to add my voice to this. I'm in the same world (S4C) and the Zamperlair has several aircraft that have not been released yet. A321NEO, A321LR, A330-800, A350-900, B787-9, etc.

Heck, the world is currently in 2011 and the A321LR doesn't become available until 2018.

… and yet you bothered to reply. 

You may be less of a cheat than Zempleair, but you are nonetheless a cheat.

I think when the world first starts, the used aircraft marked is populated with 5 of every aircraft type. I noticed that in this round of S4C there were even some that weren't able to be ordered yet. I don't have screenshots, but I remember seeing planes like the A320neo, 777X, 787 on there. So, if they have small amounts of these new aircraft, that might be where they got them from.
