Lately, I have been searching around the internet for realistic airline management games. Some are good, but cost money or lack a sense of accomplishment, and some are just downright boring and unrealistic.
My proposition, is that I make a discord server where people on the IFC can virtually manage their very own airline, Time will pass quicker than real life, so getting started would be easy. There’d be no signup, and no process to go through to be a member.
How it’d all Work:
The discord server will have some read-only channels, where users can only read messages broadcast by server admins. There would be one channel named “Daily Payment", where each airline would get their profits and expenses published for the rest of the server to observe and adapt to. This would allow for friendly competition within the game, and an addition of realism.
Another channel would be made with a list of purchasable and leasable aircraft, and in order for a member to purchase a certain aircraft, they will either message me on discord or submit an autosend form which will go directly to me (if you hate human interaction). Oh, and of course there will be a chat channel for general discussion.
Every day, I will give every participating member their active routes map where they can visually explore their routes.
There will be no slots at airports, but instead flights will have “license fees” which will cost more at different airports and depend on the aircraft size and other factors.
There will be NO money involved in this game, and I am purely doing this for fun, and because I think avgeeks deserve better management games. (Oh, and the game won’t end after a certain amount of time unlike some management games).
- Yeah! I’ll join this when it comes out!
- Sounds good but I like what I have already…
- Nope. Not my idea of fun.
Obviously this idea needs a lotta work, but I am asking you to vote in order to see if the community is interested or not.
NOTICE TO “FORUM POLICE”: This is not a VA or a VO. It is merely a game idea where there are no machines involved thus making the game more realistic. If you have any issues please PM me first so we can settle it rather than the report button being clicked, and no lessons being learned.
