#285973 Fifth Freedom Flights

Posted by Lord Corner on 29 December 2020 - 03:58 PM in General AE Discussion

Hey all,

 

I was wondering if it is possible to add fifth freedom to the game rules, just like the open skies agreements? Would be nice I think.

 

Considering the current rules, is it possible to make flights within europe as US airline? Well with Fifth Freedom it should be possible.

 

I know updates to the game are rare to be seen, I was just wondering.

 

Hope some of you like the idea, too.




#285835 Benefits of scraping?

Posted by Lord Corner on 15 December 2020 - 09:53 PM in New Players and Questions

The only benefit I of scraping an aircraft that I see is that your competition won't be able to use it to make money. 

True, the scrap Price has never offered me a better option in the past six years. The only advantage is, especially when you are a big airline, that the plane is no subject to the ever-growing Monster Airlines

#283430 Can't set flights in US (R0)

Posted by Lord Corner on 25 June 2020 - 01:50 PM in General AE Discussion

The age old unable to create short haul routes bug. Although it's unusual for it to happen with an airline with "only" 1300 aircraft.

and what is considered "short haul"? just tried a 500+ mi route, doesn't work either

The age old unable to create short haul routes bug. Although it's unusual for it to happen with an airline with "only" 1300 aircraft.

so this is mainly related to the airline size? because I've got competitors with much bigger fleets still adding short haul routes...

#283348 Can't set flights in US (R0)

Posted by Lord Corner on 17 June 2020 - 02:08 PM in General AE Discussion

Hello all,

 

I was just trying to start setting flights after buying a s*** ton of used DC-6 (now have 1,083 of them on idle). I tried PIE - PGD severals times, then other conncections from PIE. I have enough slots, runways are long enough. Why can't I assign aircrafts to the rooutes then?

 

TIA




#282153 Pay for AE

Posted by Lord Corner on 15 April 2020 - 11:38 AM in Suggestions and Feature Requests

Yeah, but who pays for Youtube premium, its kinda the same thing

 

But I feel as though this has brought up and interesting question; development has stopped, thats unquestionable, some patches essential here and there but no new major updates, and the reason I came to play AE was that it was free and had an interesting community forum aspect. What if instead of a paid-"AE premium" there is like a kickstarter or a dev fund for development of AE 2, improving on what AE does well, Expanding the gallery and forum aspects, and reworking the slightly failed press release section, and overhauling the browser game to make it seem like its not a text-based game from 2002.

I'd be in with all I can give




#281978 Shared Gates or Slot instead of Gate-Lease

Posted by Lord Corner on 08 April 2020 - 04:58 PM in Suggestions and Feature Requests

That's another positive thing I haven't though of, nice :thumbsup:




#281968 Shared Gates or Slot instead of Gate-Lease

Posted by Lord Corner on 08 April 2020 - 01:28 PM in Suggestions and Feature Requests

Delete if already asked. But I'd like to have the option to share gates with a certain airline. Most of the time you only use 1 of 50 slots. Quite unfair to other airlines which would like to operate to the airport also.

 

The ultimate version would be to only lease slots, not full gates (which more likely depicts reality)

 

Also shared gates would make alliances or similar agreements more realistic




#281967 It could be R8 1930-2020

Posted by Lord Corner on 08 April 2020 - 01:23 PM in New World Requests

R1 and R0 are already about 9 months long so..
And I highly doubt anyone would play the full length at most just the start since there’s no world between 1930 and 1950

I'd definetely play full length :D




#281966 Offer unused planes for wetlease

Posted by Lord Corner on 08 April 2020 - 01:18 PM in Suggestions and Feature Requests

no.

you'd still be able to play the current version though, no forcing anybody




#281965 Pay for AE

Posted by Lord Corner on 08 April 2020 - 01:15 PM in Suggestions and Feature Requests

What if the AE team made consistent updates but it costs like five dollars so they can make money. There is a few year long gap between big updates, if this game was five dollars maybe they would get things done because they might get paid more. I think if we can get most of the community to pay the game would be saved and updates would be common practice.

I'm currently (every once in a while) working on a document depicting how AE could become, if everyone who is willing to would spend like a dollar a month to make constant updates possible.

 

I think the reason people play AE is because it is free

Maybe one could separate the "Pay-Version" in something like "AE Premium"
