Re: Fuel Consumption Rework

Thanks for the suggestion! Aquantis!

The fuel consumption as of V1 is simply a parameter to balance the game, it really does not really reflect any real fuel usage

The problem tho by following realistic data is that we will need something else to balance the airplane performances, while the current operation cost model is pretty straight forward, the easiest way is to manipulate the so called fuel consumption to achieve that.

Simply put, fuel consumption as of V1 is simply a "cost to operate".

As for V2, we will need some substantial change to the "cost to operate" model if we want realistic fuel consumption. Honestly I have not put too much thoughts into that yet :)

Then go put some thoughts into it. Right now the fuel consumption is way wrong and it's a pain in the ass.

And yes, it seems like users do want realistic fuel consumption. At least I do.
