Country Relations Update Collection Thread
« on: January 11, 2021, 09:30:07 am »
Country relations exist in this game and they do have some impact. Of course big influential countries like the USA areon friendly terms with half the world, but I see a lack of attention to other, smaller or less important nations. Therefore I would like this to be a thread where we can discuss possible realistic updates to the relations of some countries based on how they operate in reality.
Since I am portuguese, I would like to make my own contribution with my own country of Portugal:

Current relations:
  • Spain - Close (3)
  • UK - Friendly (2)
  • Germany - Friendly (2)
  • France - Friendly (2)
  • USA - Warm (1)
  • Italy - Warm (1)

My suggestions would be that EU countries should at least have Warm relationship with each other, therefore including Portugal, and friendly relations where there are big portuguese communities such as UK, France, Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg. In Addition, portuguese speaking countries have strong ties with Portugal, from those Brazil being the closest. Finnaly there are large portuguese communities in some other countries such as Venezuela and Canada. Therefore I would make the following sugestion:

  • Spain - Alliance (4)
  • Brazil- Close (3)
  • UK - Friendly (2)
  • Germany - Friendly (2)
  • France - Friendly (2)
  • Luxembourg - Friendly (2)
  • Switzerland - Friendly (2)
  • Angola- Friendly (2)
  • Cape Verde - Friendly (2)
  • Macau - Friendly (2)
  • Mozambique - Friendly (2)
  • Sao Tome e Principe - Friendly (2)
  • Timor Leste - Warm (1)
  • Guinea-Bissau - Warm (1)
  • Venezuela - Warm (1)
  • Canada - Warm (1)
  • USA - Warm (1)
  • Italy - Warm (1)
  • Austria - Warm (1)
  • Belgium - Warm (1)
  • Bulgaria - Warm (1)
  • Croatia - Warm (1)
  • Cyprus - Warm (1)
  • Czechia - Warm (1)
  • Denmark - Warm (1)
  • Estonia - Warm (1)
  • Finland - Warm (1)
  • Greece - Warm (1)
  • Hungary - Warm (1)
  • Ireland - Warm (1)
  • Latvia - Warm (1)
  • Lithuania - Warm (1)
  • Malta - Warm (1)
  • Netherlands - Warm (1)
  • Poland - Warm (1)
  • Romania - Warm (1)
  • Solvakia - Warm (1)
  • Solvenia - Warm (1)
  • Sweden - Warm (1)

Share your proposed updates for any country you might have more detailed knowledge off and let me know if this change would be too much.
Cheers

I like this idea and it would also be interesting to have better relationships between countries with the same language. I know it is probably hard but groups like:

Portugal, Brasil, Cabo Verde, Sao Tome, Angola, Moçambique (IRL TAP Portugal favors these countries)

Spain with Latin America Except Brasil. (irl Iberia)

France, Senegal, Cote Ivoire, Mali (irl Air France)

UK, Nigeria, Kenya

Regarding demand, I think I've read that there is no table, so no chance to influence demand between same language countries.

Thanks! This is helpful. I think even tho bloc is hard to implement i might still use it to initialize some relationship, like putting all EU countries to have warm with eachother

Why just warm? I feel like the EU countries are more than warm with each other, in fact it could be seen as an alliance.

But to put it better, instead of the EU it would be the ECAA (European Common Aviation Area). That's the EU and allied countries such as Serbia, Norway and Iceland.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Common_Aviation_Area

In the game you see airlines starting bases all over the world, in real life that wouldn't be allowed. They're only allowed to start bases in their home country or countries that their country has an alliance with, such as the ECAA. Outside that, some countries if the relationship is good enough might allow a base however only for flights to their home country or alliance.

PS perhaps a small bug. Romania is set as No international connection. That's false, Romania is a part of the EU and the ECAA and therefor does allow for international connections. It has the exact same conditions as all other ECAA countries.
