that used to be a hot topic like around 2000, which a lot of IT companies outsource their coding to India/China or places with cheaper labor. Though it might sometimes be counter-productive to do so: https://www.quora.com/Is-outsourcing-to-India-useless-Is-it-counter-productive-Have-american-companies-stopped-outsourcing-to-India-Is-there-any-difference-between-outsouring-to-small-companies-vs-outsourcing-to-bigger-firms

Not saying that outsourcing is going to be gone completely, but there are reasons that IT companies in the North America expanding their development teams in the US and Canada like all the major companies: Amazon, Google, Facebook etc

So for IT, it's not the same like some manufacturing jobs which really could be moved to another country for good. Software development requires good education, and highly educated workforce could be relatively cheaper in some countries, but not by a lot when all factors are accounted for.

thanks for the explanations

Do the total interest charge makes sense in this game right now?

For the interest rate i was simply doing (total interest / borrowed amount) :P

Is APR people use for mortgage too? i know people use that for car loans

ah sorry I was slacking off and didn't check forums

Welcome to the coding world!

Coders make good money kekeke

I would say u can learn from online resources. I would suggest perhaps Java to start as it's the most popular and has most online resource available.

If you do decide to become a programmer then u can consider Computer Science in college. It makes decent salary and usually has reasonable work hours. ;)

Im not a loan expert here the rate we listed indeed in not APR

But im not sure if 5 years loan has much lower interest rate than 1 year lean? can you please explain it?

For example, if someone takes a $100 loan, and the 1 year rate is 10% and 5 year rate is 15%. I would supposed that the on 1 year term the total amount to repay is $110 and on 5 year term the total amount to replay is $115, it is true that on 5 year term, on average only $3 per year on interest, but at the same time the borrower really just getting $20 loan on average per year over 5 years period?

It's complicated. ur competitor might have a better alliance network/higher loyalty.

And also different passenger types have different price sensitivity...so u really have to do it trial and error

Under Development / Wish List / Suggestions / v1.3 planning :)
« on: April 25, 2020, 12:22:54 pm »
Hi All!

I have started working on V1.3. Currently on the list:

1. Flight search system - Something that looks like an online portal that let you search for flight ticket - but with in-game data :)
2. Capital city charm - Airport around capital city will be marked with this new charm. Increased demand between capital cities among countries
3. ???

Thoughts? Ideas?
