Distance in Search mode
« on: November 08, 2020, 01:31:35 pm »
Is it possible to show off the distance between two airports when we make a search? So we can realise suitable airplanes?

I agree with this suggestion.

Currently when I'm investigating a route, I look it up on GCmap to see it's distance. This has the disadvantage that GCmap shows the distance in miles while the game uses kilometers, so I have to convert miles into kilometers first. Then I sort the planes by range and draw a line at the route distance so I can pick the best plane below the line.

You can see that in plan route screen too? or do u not have a base in one of the airports? :)


I understand it might be the case you just want to see details of an airport pair that you dun current have a base.

Though the 2 current search functions : tickets and history, will not be a good fit, as there's no guarantees that there will be result for those 2 operations.

I think you are probably asking for a 3rd search function which you simply do search on 2 airport pairs and get to see some basic info - demand, distance, existing service provider etc. I think it will be cool if we can put some extra analytic info in there too, though this will be a new feature that requires quite a bit of effort, I will keep that in mind :)
