View Full Version : How Should Virtual Airlines System be
09-30-2001, 02:23 AM
I have read two or three articles about VA's that they are waste of time. If the sytem of Virtual Airlines Remain Like that. Then I think it is a waste of time.
I have seen Virtual Airlines there system is that First Signup, then they are on there own they just have to fly and report. I don't know why people waste there time.
I think an Airline System should be like this.
1. There Should be a Central website. Where people can come and register there Virtual Airlines. So there are no 2 VA's of the same name. And there sould also be a place where people can come and apply for job, so VA's can search through the list and get the person they want.
2. There Should be a Web Site where the Flight Plan's of the Virtual Airline's are made. Each airline should have a diffrent plan.
3. All the Airlines should be in one IP session so the game looks more realistic.
4. Airlines Should Have ATC's.
5. There Should be a Flight Sim Training School. Only the people approved by Training School should be allowed to Join VA's.
I think if there is a system like this. Peole will never say that VA's are waste of time.

Question: What do us people with lives, girlfreinds, and school/work do? Do we have time for this intergat crap? This is a hobby, like stamp collecting it is a hobbie. don't take it so serious, it is stress relif. I mean by all means I'm young, I have a girl, and friends. How do I manage school and starting my own company when I'm trying 2 keep up on my hobby? just wanted 2 ask.

I like the idea! But, no one will go for it. VA's are already too well astablished for it to happen.

Those are good ideas, but in most va's I've seen, alot of that does happen. There are some websites that list va's (including flightsimnetwork.com), and vatsim.com is an ATC place with a lot of VA's on connected IP's(i'm not sure one IP can handle that much). I don't think that will change people's opinions though.

oy oy oy....u shuld read my article....at least the part abt the VA's. I kinda agree with you....abt training. There shuld be some training....or knowledge....but not to the extent where they wont let u join unless u pass a test or something. You shuld have the "knowledge" on how to fly for them....but nothing special. Start out small and go big. Thats what practice is all abt.

Listen. If you want to go and implement all of that crap feel free. I can't wait to see how many virtual airlines will actually register their site. I know that I sure won't! What a waste of time. Plus some people don't want to fly multiplayer and in some cases don't have the time to, so IP's are totally worthless. I cannot be bothered with that. In a couple of weeks, there will be an Op-Ed coming out on Flightsim.com written by me about how I hate it when people want total realism and write in to me complaining that "that isn't realistic you should have landed on this runway if you were in the 777. What an idiot you are!" Tell you what, if you want total realism for yourself, go ahead, but I want no part of it so leave me out. It's a game people! You don't have to worry about angry, whining passengers who want to know why the plane isn't clean enough or why the flight attendant spilled hot coffee on them and ruined their best suit. Just shut up and fly!

I'm not as fired up as this post seems but I do agree. There are 2 networks now (VATSIM.org and IVAO.org) that have world wide multiplayer networks established where VA's do regular runs where there are people doing ATC. Many VA's have their web sites and treat them like a real business. Unfortunately some get on these network and think everybody is there for the same reason and expect truly professional ATC and piloting. Exuse me but I just want a multiplayer game with somewhat realistic weather, throw in some atc where needed, this is just a game to play with.
Honestly you don't need to control one plane when it has a pilot already with all kinds of navigational equipment at the ready to get him onto the best runway for his plane. I've yet to see a situation online where ATC was really needed. It's helpful at some points where the airport is somewhat busy (Atlanta and LAX).
My point is if you are a pilot don't get angry if an ATC doesn't know what he's doing and don't expect more than what you need, if you're an ATC don't get angry if a pilot doesn't understand what you want and don't get frustrated if he asks for more than you can give. Don't be afraid to say "I don't know".
Yes training is also available on both networks and many VA websites so it's available if you want it, but don't demand it because like the above message says this is for stress relief. We get enough of that in real life, we don't need it in a game too.
