#112303 Understanding delays

Posted by Banff on Yesterday, 11:24 in Community Support

Just a tip. If you want to hide which airports you're flying to and from, you have to add more blur. I'm sure most people can see which airports in India you're flying to :-)

#112224 151 Aircraft in less than 2 weeks

Posted by Banff on 15.08.2018 - 15:51 in General

The company in question has been reported, but there's no cheating involved.

Without knowing all details, this is a case where a player has been compensated by AS because the server accidentally deleted some of his airline(s).

So no worries.

#112201 Also Time to say Good Bye

Posted by Banff on 14.08.2018 - 18:28 in General

It's been a pleasure. I am ready to welcome you back any day. And thank you for contributing to AS in such a positive manner.

I wish you a great journey :-)

#112012 Announcement: New game world this Friday!

Posted by Banff on 03.08.2018 - 08:39 in General

There's is usually no official time, because launching a new server isn't an every day thing. Sometimes everything works like a charm, sometimes there's some issues.

But anywhere between noon and late afternoon is the most common thing, if I remember correctly.

#111831 Time to say Goodbye

Posted by Banff on 27.07.2018 - 19:06 in General

All the best Christian. You have always contributed greatly to the community with a good sense of humour. It's a loss to see you go. I'm sure you'll be back one day.

I'm interested in Tianjin Sky :P

#111830 Private Gameworlds - The mystery

Posted by Banff on 27.07.2018 - 18:59 in General

Thanks! Makes more sense now, I wonder now if some rich nerd would ever pay just to have the world to himself and create one super dominating airline :P

If I recall correctly there's a server with 2 players on. But haven't checked for a while.

#111779 [EN] High Capacity Shuttle Routes

Posted by Banff on 25.07.2018 - 20:32 in General

I run 747-800 between DXB-DOH and SHJ-DOH, due to slot congestion. It's pretty much a loss every flight (a full flight gives +10.000), but some flights have as much as 270 connecting pax. So I'm doing it for connections, not for money ;)

#111650 Some questions before getting my first ever company started

Posted by Banff on 21.07.2018 - 18:19 in Community Support

Are you using an old bookmark? Try to clear history/cookies and not use book marks. Find AS through Google or type the adress manually in your browser.

What Free Slots? PEK 1% CDG 1% ORD 2% JFK 2% LHR 3% Sea 3% Atl 4% PVG 4% FRA 3% LAX 7% After only 7 months and with at least 3 airlines with around 1000 or more aircraft and growing exponentially plus several more at 500+ the game world should already be on the great thread of opportunity post.

Well, if you compare with the past, it's pretty amazing that you still have an opportunity to schedule flights to Pek or LHR after 7 months. It might not fit your wave, but its possible. I still remember when older servers were launched, PEK was full within a week or 2.
It might not be perfect, but it has improved.

I also like the low Agex. Makes my competitors suffer ;-)

#111323 Is this cheating?

Posted by Banff on 07.07.2018 - 11:04 in General

I have censored the company names. Please don't mention names in the future.

It's a way to obtain a larger part of the shares. Whether it's legal or not is not my decision. But if you send me a ticket number, I'll see what I can do :-)

#111305 Indian Airports update needed

Posted by Banff on 06.07.2018 - 07:56 in General

OK cause I think we haven't heard about it... But you must include verifiable sources for every airport, not just Wikipedia data, but official airport or aviation authority data.

Johannes knows about it, and he has most likely been in touch with Martin. I've seen some correspondence at least.


#111255 Concorde Game Server?

Posted by Banff on 03.07.2018 - 20:44 in General

It's an exclusive private server.

#110967 Abrupt change in stock price

Posted by Banff on 19.06.2018 - 08:43 in Community Support

Something must have happened... you have gone from a 2,483,479$ profit, to a 8,791,862$ loss. That's a change of -454%. Your return on equity has gone from 7,7% to -25,5%. You should try to post a screenshot of your finance account. Rubio's suggestion might be realistic, as it looks like your company lost around 9.000.000$.


Posted by Banff on 15.06.2018 - 21:16 in Hoover

read the above comments they "expect" it to become more difficult to play, it looks like they are adjusting demand and AGEX to hit a target average load factor

I hope they won't push it to 60-70% LF to "purge" the world of bad and unsuspecting players

I am thinking of building a cash reserve myself

Just a wee bit of advice... rethink your strategy if you are struggling now. My % is rising, without me doing anything at all. It's at 93.8 now.

#110846 Missing Airports

Posted by Banff on 11.06.2018 - 09:02 in General

I'm pretty sure that the reason is, that Airlinesim only include airports, which has regular commercial service (daily etc.)

But I may stand corrected.


Posted by Banff on 07.06.2018 - 18:58 in Hoover

Hmm. If you won't listen to Matth, I don't know who should tell you...

Imagine that you had 2 Hoover servers. Same AGEX.

Hoover 1 has a slow increase of pax, and therefore a demand of 50.000.000 pax right now.

Hoover 2 has the complete demand from the beginning - maybe 75.000.000 from day 1.

While the demand is controlled by the AGEX, then the slow increase of pax influences how many pax that the AGEX controls...

That's how it works.

#110625 Succeeding on an old server

Posted by Banff on 03.06.2018 - 17:22 in General

Just leave it as it is. Eireann is not obligated to tell. Anyhow I'm sure the reason why people are curious might be the possibility of multi accounts.

Eireann, would you mind pm me your in game user name? In that way we can avoid accusations about multi accounts in the future.

#110467 Compra de aeronaves

Posted by Banff on 29.05.2018 - 05:16 in Foruns AirlineSim em português

Moved topic to the Spanish forum.

Edit: And no reason to make 5 posts, with the same question. :-) 

#110167 Introduction of new aircraft types

Posted by Banff on 17.05.2018 - 08:27 in General

The data is up! The pages are no longer blank! Happy days!


Thanks for the update. The dev team has received the data, and will do their best to prepare an update as quickly as possible. But it might be a little while yet. But it's on its way :-)

#110023 Traffic rights question

Posted by Banff on 05.05.2018 - 12:21 in General


Thanks for the answer. That means I create that new subsidiary in vane? I will never be able to set flights to outside EU starting outside France?

Correct. You can fly from UK to Italy, Greece, Sweden and so on.. But not outside European union. If you want to fly longer than EU, it can only be from France.

#109955 My competitor vanished!

Posted by Banff on 02.05.2018 - 06:04 in General

Server and airport?

#109781 What is the real purpose of ORS?

Posted by Banff on 24.04.2018 - 09:47 in Community Support

Easy way too determine whether a route has competition or not?

#109765 People Ignoring you.

Posted by Banff on 23.04.2018 - 20:32 in General

Since last Monday, I have gotten 49 new IL offers at Hoover. Without counting, I'm pretty sure I have around 100 waiting IL's and 30 accepted. And how many personal messages have I gotten? 1(!!).

I simply do not have the time to check every single airline, which applies. Then I couldn't do anything else. And accepting all of them would be a waste of money.

One of the airlines I decided to check out, had one weekly flight from an odd destination. And it didn't even hit my wave. Would have been a waste of 25.000 every single week.

From other servers, I can say that a reasonable IL offer with a message has 99% chance of success. Even companies made yesterday. But no contact usually end up with a decline.

#109704 Demand, pricing, and monopolies?

Posted by Banff on 21.04.2018 - 07:22 in General

It seems like you have a high maintenance ratio. Utilizing your aircraft's better will allow you to lower your prices if you wish. Looks like your CS1 has almost 6 hours on the ground. Way too much.

#109360 New Islamabad Airport

Support@airlinesim.aero as usual, please.
