Airplane Retirement in 2.3.0
« on: September 18, 2013, 06:42:19 PM »
First, thank you for all of your hard work making such a great game.  Been playing 2.3.0 a lot, my ONLY gripe is that from about 1995 on, the number of passenger planes available becomes overwhelming.  By 2018, there's 34 passenger planes.  I know there's been a lot of work to craft all those planes, but it's **** near impossible to quickly get the right airplane.

Not sure exactly where to trim, but old versions of the 737 (-100 - -400) would seem obvious candidates for retirement as -500-900 come online.  That much seems easy.

Not sure exactly how to rationalize after that, though maybe just having one version of the 747, 777, 787, A330, and A340 would certainly help.  Also the 767s also pretty quickly become hopeless, and probably should be replaced by a 787, though I have no idea how to do that modeling.   It would also seem that Airbus planes are a bit more efficient than the Boeings...Go 'Murica!
