Prioritize Replacement of Lowest Condition Aircraft
« on: January 28, 2020, 11:42:08 pm »
I feel like I saw this as a feature a while ago during the replacement rework, but it appears it's disappeared, anywho, it'd be nice to see an option in auto-replacement where the system will build up funds to replace the lowest condition aircraft first, as those are more expensive and can lead to more losses from flight cancellations/delays, instead of having it always replace the highest condition aircraft that's under the replace threshold.

This is already the default unless it's not working as intended? :)

Though u might have problem if ur lowest condition one is the most expensive one and u have other airplane model which u do have money to replace, in this case ur money will be used to replace the cheaper model and u might then never have enough money to replace the more expensive one

In this case i would advise temporarily removing the auto-renewal, save up money and re-enable the auto-renewal again

Hmm...second thought...perhaps i should change the code logic to not replace any airplane if you have no cash to replace the lowest condition one. That way it will force ur airline to save up money to replace the oldest one first...ok i will implement that :)


Update: it was implemented and deployed yesterday night :)
