Don’t do them.
It really is that simple. You don’t have to do long-haul, and I certainly won’t. Likewise I can understand people who do want to do them.
But, what people should know is that it isn’t up to the devs to work out a solution for them to do long-haul if they don’t want to put in the hours. I have nothing against people getting up to cruise and then going to bed, but is it fair that centre should have to route other traffic around them? Also, this means Oceanic control won’t work at all?
This is why I want to request to the devs- please don’t encourage AFK flying on the expert server. It isn’t fair on everybody who is flying that they should have to route around AFK pilots, and the issues can could be caused if someone drops off or oversleeps. By all means let them do it on Casual or solo, but expert is designed to be realistic- going to bed for the night isn’t exactly that.
