    Airline Tycoon
    Work in Progress


    Hi everyone, this is a side project i'm making to hopefully learn new stuff (and i already did). This is also the first time i finally make good progress in a game.
    There are several reasons i decided to make such game:
    - There is almost 0 games like this
    - I was inspired by other people online browser games
    - I wanted to improve my programming skills

    Now i'm not sure this can be called a Tycoon, but you'll se below in this post :p

    Now about the game:
    - Airline Tycoon will be completely based on GUI, no 2D - 3D stuff. It will be 100% free
    - Probably it will be open source once finished(or stable)
    - In this game you create your own airline, you can choose between ~50 (or more in the future) different cities of different countries around the world
    - There will be lots of different aircraft.
    - Live constantly changing world, with AI airlines.

    Current Progress:
    - Flight "calculations" - 90%
    - Repair/Sell functionality - 60%
    And that's it there is still lots of work to do.

    Feel free to comment on what you think about it.

    This looks really cool. One question though: is the gui style you currently have only for prototyping?

    Well, except the franchise with the exact same name :)
    Besides that, I wish you good luck as this is a very fun genre which I enjoy playing.

    Looks promising

    Will you be able to choose some destinations as your 'safe haven' or like, settle your company there with maintenance, pilot education, administration and such?

    Well, you will have head quarters, which will give some advantage and bonuses when your sircraft pass there. There will be something like "services" where you will be able to set things like in-flight ervices and for example seats quality.. Now i'm not sure if i'll make pilots (but i probably will) this would add more strategy since you'd have to pay salaries and etc.
