Hello forum, hello Airlinesim
While the common way to fix issues is to send a message to the support, I would like to post this one in public, as I think it is an emotional topic from general interest.
First, thank you very much guys for this 80-ies world! The idea is fantastic and I absolutely appreciate it. But why in gods name and all holy did you remove not just the new plane types but also the old stock, that was pretty common and widely spread back then? In fact, this destroys all the fun I initially expected. I would rather have removed the Airbus ASeries 320, that apparently later killed all the DC-9, B732 or B727 which were in operation back then in substantial numbers. While I did not expected that the team would create additional types (think about Caravelles, Vickers Viscounts or similar), letting the already existing types remain in the game wouldn't have need a second of time but rather created a much more realistic 80-ies scenario.
I'm aware of the problem, that if hundreds or even thousands of used coalers are available on the market, it would lead to a few superlarge airlines in very short time, killing the game for the rest of the world. But that's unrealistic anyway, as in reality there were never thousands of them on the open market back then at any given time. Limiting the availability (let us say, no more than used 10 frames per type per week dropping into the market e.g.), would eliminate that problem.
I'm looking curiously for other oppinions!
BTW: fuel was dirt cheap in the 80-ies ;)
