Hello fellow Airlinesimmers,
Hans82 and I have already spoken about a new potential gameworld in another topic, but now we made some real plans and I am excited to share that with you.
First, the name. We will call the new Gameworld Svalbard. This is the Norwegian island which contains the most northern airport in the world. It sounds nice, is easy to remember and it is related to Aviation.
Second, the settings.
Dynamic turnaround times: On
Nighttime ban: Off
Ground network: On
Double slots: On
Used aircraft: On. Only modern planes with a maximum age of 7 years will be available on the used aircraft market.
Interlining with your own companies: On
Real airline names: On, but we really stimulate being creative with your airline name
Traffic rights: On
Third: The amount of money you begin with.
We have decided that all players start with 30 million. That would make a good start possible, but still be legitimate and not overpowered.
Fourth: The amount of holdings.
All players are allowed to have three holdings in the beginning of Svalbard. This limit will go up once we are further in the game.
There only should be one holding per airport.
In the Eu, USA and China you are only allowed to have one holding.
Each holding may have two subsidiaries, but those two subsidiaries have to be in the same country as the holding. Also, a subsidiary may be found at an airport where another holding is already based. For example: You have a holding in Frankfurt. You may have a subsidiary in Munich (where in this example another airline is based), Berlin Tegel or any other German airport you like, as long as you have max two subsidiaries. Also, this means that when you are based in Frankfurt, you cannot open a subsidiary in any other Eu country, so no subsidiary in Vienna, Zurich, Brussel or anywhere abroad.
You may not open a holding at a (smaller) airport where you will not fly from. So, opening a holding at Niederrhein in Germany and creating a subsidiary at Frankfurt so you can fly from there is not allowed.
Fifth: The price.
The price will be 20-15 euros, depending on the amount of people who will join Svalbard. The first payment should be for three months, so 60-45 euros. The fourth month will be 20-15 euros each month.
If you are still interested, we would ask you to write down your top 8 hubs you would like to operate from. Post that in the comments. Hans and I have a spreadsheet with a list of everyone who wants to join. Once we have enough members, we will fairly hand out the airports so everyone will have hubs they like.
If the server opens, you will have to start in one week. If you don’t your reservations will be cancelled and others can change their hubs to one of yours. If you have a good reason why you can’t start in one week, we will make an exception of course.
We have to tell that the minimum amount of people have to be 18. If we receive this number, we will buy the server. If we don’t reach that, we most likely will not continue with Svalbard. So please, join us
We already have three members, so we need fifteen from now.
If you have any questions, please ask us. We are always ready to answers.
Hans and Julius
