    AviationSIM - free browsergame

    Hello guys,

    before starting with the presentation of our project I better introduce myself. My name is André and I am one of the owners of the future browsergame called AviationSIM. Hopefully I am allowed to post this here. At least nobody answered to our mails for one month.

    As the name already indicates it is an aviation related browsergame. So in general it is up to you to lead your own airline. But we also offer you the opportunity to create and manage other service providers such as groundhandling, catering or maintenancefirms.
    Any of these different companies are interdependent. No airline can exist without a maintenancefirm as every airplane needs to be checked regularly. Same goes for the airport which cannot exist without the groundhandlingfirm.

    The game is free to play. You will not have to pay for anything. Everything is permanently available without costs.

    Referring to the passenger system we have thought of multiple aspects that should be included into the calculation. So it depends on following things: price, season, weather, service, duration of flight, cabin, image etc.
    Every passenger has different preferences and can choose his/her individual flight fitting to her/him. Furthermore every passenger can change at airports in order to continue to his final destination.
    Consequently it will be possible to organise codeshare-agreements or even feeders (bringing passengers from small airports to bigger ones). Delays and annulations will also be features of our game.

    When playing a maintenance firm you are responsible for every airline that lets check/repair their aircrafts in your hangars. There will be different sizes of hangars so that you cannot automatically repair a 747. You better specialise in checking aircrafts of one or two certain types because you need to have spare parts for every different type in your depot.

    As an owner of a groundhandlingfirm you need to keep track of the ongoing traffic on ground. It is your task to emplane aircrafts with either cargo containers or the passenger's luggage. Moreover you have to get the food on board, to push back the plane etc. Everything needs to be planned dead on time.

    By the way: We plan the feature which allows the player to create or manage an own airport. This will come later on as an update.

    However, everything needs a contract - be it an airplane, a codeshare-agreement or the entrance of an alliance.
    That way you can easily interact with other players worldwide.

    Ok, enough talk. Let´s come to first screenshots.
    First Screenshots

    The game's release is in winter 2011. It will be available in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Romanian, Vietnamese and Polish. More languages are not excluded. It just depends on more volunteers speaking either German or English fluently so that they can get the game translated into any language. Every translator gets a free premium account for half a year and a reference in our credits.
    Don´t get us wrong - premium is absolutely not necessary. Every features is available without paying anything. Premium is simply necessary to get more decorations. Furthermore you can create more than one company when having a premium account. We will also create a professional airline logo for you when you have a premium account.

    We also got a trailer:

    Official Trailer


    If you got questions feel free to ask them. We will answer them as soon as anyhow possible. In the meanwhile you can follow us on Facebook.

    With best regards,
    André

    I must admit, this does sound very promising. My only disappointment is that we have to wait until the winter to try it out!

    I remember a similar game (or 'simulation') from a few years ago, which had to be paid for, and I recall it had a very complicated pricing structure. You paid over the odds for the initial game and I believe the makers wanted payment for all future updates.

    @Deano: Thank you very much. I assume our webprovider got problems sending mails to "foreign" providers. However, thanks again.

    @T5: I completely understand you. We need to attract attention so that as many people as anyhow possible can contribute their ideas and suggestions. The game is for for players and therefore the players should decide what they want to play.

    So, you need to wait anyway. We´ll keep you updated (if we are allowed to).

    Sounds good André, looking forward to it. Is this something like "Airline Manager"?

    Hi 27vet!

    Sorry for replying that late. We did not get email notifications...

    To answer your question:
    Yes, you can manage airlines, but that is not all. To get a brief description of what AviationSim actually is you can read our wiki introduction:

    introduction

    There you´ll even find more information about our game which I just cannot repeat in this topic. It would take too much time to describe everything we will offer you in the future.
    However, if you have questions...just raise them.

    Just some general links:

    Hello aviation fans!

    Here we are again. Right now the theoretical concepts, databases in general etc. are terminated so that we can finally begin programming the game. Therefore we engaged 7 programmers. So hopefully we should do great progress soon.
    But there is still something else...we need your help!

    As you surely know a bad maintenance of any aircraft will lead to an increased possibility of failures, delays, flight cancellation or even (in rare cases) to a crash. In order to realise this feature we need a list of failures that may appear under certain circumstances. Unfortunately we are no engineers so please be so kind and share your knowledge in order to let the game be as realistic as anyhow possible. We appeal urgently to all aircraft mechanics, engineers and maintenance workers out there: help us please!

    You will be rewarded with a free premium voucher of 150 AS-Coins (1 month) if you can help us! For more information about our premium system please see our wiki.

    Anybody interested may simply send a private message to me (in our forums only) or an email to info@aviationsim-game.com

    Thank you in advance for the great support of you guys! It is really appreciated a lot!

    Kind regards,
    André

    There are so many different "snags" the list is almost infinite. I will send you some that I can think up next week (ones that I have personally experienced how about that?).

    Dear Avisimmers,


    The day has come! Today, we proudly present the beginning of the alpha test!
    You may ask what we mean by that. Well, it's the first time you are able to actually play the game and you're all invited!

    The application form for the Alpha test will be released at Sunday 15th at 18:00 CET until Wednesday 15th at 23:59 CET.
    We will chose 100 testers after having reached the deadline. So, be sure to be registered on our portal site. In order to apply for the Alpha test, you need to have a valid account there.
    There is no more time to waste if you haven't registered an account yet.

    Testing will take place in German and English and there is no guaranteed participation!
    Once we pick you as a tester, you will get a personal e-mail with further information and instructions.

    Just go for it and take your chance: To the application form

    See you soon,
    Your Avisim-Team

    @27vet: Is that problem still unsolved? Did you try to recover your password? What is your username/mail. You may contact us at info@aviationsim-game.com

    Hello Avisimmers

    From now own, you still have 3 days to apply for the closed Alpha test (15.02.2012 23:59 CET).

    The what? Get more information here: Alpha test is about to begin!

    Right now, we already have 2200 registered users and more than 300 people who applied for the Alpha test - meaning you theoretically have 33% of getting picked in the draw!

    Make sure to not miss this huge event in the project's development and help us improving the game!

    So long,

    André thanks for your reply, I have been so busy at work that I hardly even visit the forum these days. My company is moving into a new hi-tech building in July/August and I have been doing training on the building automation systems which will continue till late this year. I will do as you say to recover the password....I'm not sure if I will be able to help test the Alpha version but I am looking forward to your product and hope I can help in some way.
    Cheers
    Ralph

    Hello Avisimmers

    On an emotional level, the whole team has invested lots of blood, sweat and tears into the project and we know that you, fans and future users altogether, cannot await the game to be released.

    The time has come today to proudly present you the eagerly anticipated start of our Alpha test on 27 July 2012. As you may imagine this date is of incredible importance to all of us.
    Why? Because it embodies a game that is far advanced in development with the core features being completed.
    Once the Alpha test begins, the chosen testers and the team will work hand in hand to find and solve game related problems. Only that way we can provide you a perfect game, or in other words, a sophisticated, realistic and entertaining simulation of all time.

    Oh well, from a philosophical perspective we could say: It will not last any longer than it already lasted! But nothing lasts longer than it already lasted, isn't it?

    Anyway, back to reality. We now have 3.500 registered users and more users are highly welcome! That's the link to our portal page on which you'd need to register for playing the game from the very beginning: http://www.aviationsim-game.com

    Due to the unexpectedly high demand we will most likely start with 2 separate game worlds, Bravo and Charlie, each offering at least 3.000 accounts. Be one of them!

    So long,
    Your AviSim-Team

    Hello Avisimmers!

    As usually we want to provide you with information concerning AviationSim's developing progress.The closed Alpha test is in full swing and our diligent participants report bugs like mad!
    We just advanced to the second phase (of 4 in total) of the Alpha test. As you see, we are eagerly working on the project every single day.
    Be assured that we, just like you, cannot await the release to happen! However, first class simulations need their time and developing them is not a piece of cake.
    Therefore, we would like to thank you all for your patience and encouragements which help us to keep going!

    The amount of total users on our website is slowly but surely reaching the magic 5.000 mark.

    You will be rewarded at the end of the day, that's for sure!

    Keep up the patience just like we do!

    So long,
    Your AviSim Team

    Hi there dear AviationSim fans and those who want to become such

    It has not been an easy time for both, you and us. We have mentioned 2 release dates which had to be postponed again and again. We have surely stretched your patience a lot. But you still held faith with us. Thank you so much!

    And here it is, the reward for your patience. We proudly announce the 28th May 2014 as the release date of AviationSim’s public Beta!

    Our extensive Alpha test has shown that we have really developed a challenging economic simulation. For that reason, we will start with 2 game world – Bravo and Charlie.
    Bravo is a complex game world intended for those who really want to experience our full level of difficulty. Charlie is a somewhat easier game world for those of you who have not made experience in aviation or in such difficult browser games yet. Each game world can accommodate not less than the incredible number of 5.000 players.

    In the beginning, you can choose between scheduled airlines, charter airlines as well as regional airlines. We will then develop and integrate the following company types as time goes by.

    There are only a few days left until you can grab your hands on the game. Be ready and anticipate the long awaited day!

    Register now and be one of the very first players!

    We all are very proud of what we have accomplished and we do hope that we can infect you with our AviationSim fever.

    Your AviSim-Team
