Hi,
As the name suggests, this server is dedicated for aiplane builders (me one of them) but its not possibel to fully make use of modern airports and modern airplanes. Can I ask for some thoughts to be given to this server...plz.

Thanx

Well the last plane introduced is Darwin700 in the year 2042. My suggestions are as follows:

1) Start 2030 - 2060.(All planes and airports types in ottd can be utilized)

2) Planes never expire.... (for classic plane lovers).

3) Train lengths reduce to 5 tiles...(as lev4 would have come in and people would rush to long pax trains for easy money.whereas 5 tile trains should be sufficient for resources needed to expand towns)

4) Disable funding new industries.(stopping people from building lumber mills).

I am sure someone else can come with better ideas than what i have put down.

Well, your ideas are not that radical and I consider they`ll have a good impact on the server. Altough 5 length is a bit harsh. The modifications that I agree are as following:

Start 2030 - End 2080 (there has to be some time for slow players too, in case they want to play. Basically, it doesn`t affect anything else since server has autorestart, and it also restarts when you win)

Planes never expire

Train Length = 6 (It`s kinda hard to operate with 2 wagons. The whole purpose of supplying vanishes)

Disable funding new industries

The modifications will also be posted in the news. Thank you for proposing them and in case you have any suggestions, don`t hesitate to tell us :)

Changes were made to attract more pple to this server and make more interesting, although, in my opinion, some tweaking is still required (number of 4k cities to be increased for example.)
 As far as serevr 3 goes, thats one THE most popular server, so any adverse change might deter regular players.
Thats my opinion though...

Update.

I think there is room for improvement (a much needed one too).
Competition is hamperred by low numbers of 4k cities, on average there are about 5 or 6 to start with and these are quickly taken up by players on first come first served basis.Very often new players visiting the server, with intent to play, leave soon, realising there is "no more room."
This situation can be overcome in two ways:
   1) A bigger map, like 2048x2048 with lots of  bigger cities.
   2) Removing the noise limit.

Thats my opinion, hope to see others ideas too.

i just played there and i agree on changing the map a bit

the towns are just too small. most players will have a hard time there

so why not increase city size a bit
and lower noise limit (like the halved noise limit on k4)

please review the points here, we play for 5 years and got 170 points, 6 years and got 150 points, compare to other server it's little bit unbalance, so far i know this server is the easiest server yet highest points for fast server.  ;)

I think its time to "Up the bar" a bit. I suggest target increased to 1 billion, and perfect score of 900.

Well its the same on all servers, that you build your network and then just wait till you reach the goal. Its also a fact that building an airport network is the quickest one, as the server name suggests...you get exactly " what it says on the tin". Surely if one want to do more than just sit and wait, there are plenty of other servers with varied options.

that's why i said easiest server yet highest points, and that's my reason said this server isn't fair for the other players. i think reduce the points is the only way.

but

please review the points here, we play for 5 years and got 170 points, 6 years and got 150 points, compare to other server it's little bit unbalance, so far i know this server is the easiest server yet highest points for fast server.  ;)

me, too.

and higher goal, 1 Bill for a little bit longer games.
maybe a little less aircraft limit, 150.
I think then is the server more ballanced with the others...

And how can i suggest my opinion for a new Big Goal Server? ;) Server k4 is to small for me :D .... lol
