Airline Mogul Celebrates 50,000 Users!

Item 90 - 29 Jan 2012

Airline Mogul Celebrates 50,000 Users!

 

Airline Mogul

After recently passing its 6th Birthday, the celebrations were kept quiet as the milestone of 50,000 registered users was fast approaching. And after those six short years the milestone has arrived! The game first started on the 23rd of December 2005 with a small community of airline game fans who wanted to see a fresh approach to the genre. Since then it has steadily been expanded due to the hard work and determination of Airline Mogul's voluntary staff, the very many users over the years and those who have helped keep Airline Mogul running by supporting it with paid tokens. 

 

Progress on development of the game has always been at a steady pace, building a reliable game for everyone to enjoy, one of the biggest achievements of the game to date is the launch of the ever popular private worlds. Allowing users to play with their friends, co-workers, classmates, and other AM players has been a hugely successful addition to the game and continues to evolve to this day.

 

As part of these celebrations the staff at Airline Mogul decided to start it off by sharing a massive 2,000,000 tokens! Each existing user will receive approximately 40 free tokens to their account in the next 24 hours to allow them to join a new world, or add one of those ever useful premium features. 

 

New and Improved Features

We will also improve the Aircraft Search feature to allow some greater functionality, and improve the visuals of the game by including some aircraft photos. Making a choice about an aircraft has never been easier, and with deeper integration with the aircraft market, it will make it easier and faster than ever to add a new aircraft to fleets. To start of 2012 we also released the long-awaited Reduce Terminal feature, and as the year progresses we aim to release Hotswap, a new Statistics Centre and some updates to the Maintenance of aircraft. Hotswap is currently under test and is expected to be released very soon.

 

Scenario Based World

Airline Mogul has always been reliant on the free time of the members of the community to contribute, we add to our staff pool occasionally and are ever grateful for all the work past and present players and staff have done for the game. As a recognition of this community spirit around the game, we are going to try something a little bit different. The first scenario based game will be created in the next 72 hours, where a group of only 50 users can join a pre-configured airline and work towards one of three goals. This exciting and challenging world will provide a new experience for those that have played Airline Mogul many times before and promises to bring a new dynamic to the game. In order to make it that bit more competitive we are also offering a prize of either a €25 voucher for Amazon or €45 worth of Paid Tokens. Those coming second and third will also have their pick of AM prizes. 

 

So after reaching this first significant milestone I hope you will join with us in celebrating the achievement. We would like to thank you for playing Airline Mogul over these years and being a part of it. We look forward to what our 6th year brings and we hope you will get some fun out of it too.

Gates Improvements

Item 82 - 31 Aug 2010

We are delighted to announce the improvement of the gates pages. This improvement has come based on user feedback as well as additional feature implementation. What you can look forward to now is the ability to see City and State names for all airports in the database where these are available.

We have also taken the time to re-design the header on each gates page to better communicate the base system in Airline Mogul. It should be much easier now to identify how many bases you can create and the link between Home bases and Foreign bases.

The importance of locating airports using a variety of methods is also supported. You can now view airports by their IATA or ICAO code by using the search box on the top right of each page, or click on a City, State or Country name or flag to view airports in that area. We have also added the functionality to provide "Wildcard" searching with ICAO codes. A search for EI* will return all airports in Ireland for example, since every Irish airport is prefixed with EI in its ICAO code.

Please take a few moments to familarise yourself with the updated pages and hopefully you will be able to make full use of the improvements we have made.

It's fully functional, it shows what it needs to show and it's green, so it's probably cool. Have fun with the new features, and don't forget to let us know if it doesn't work for you.

Login Re-Opens for 24 hours of testing

Item 59 - 4 Oct 2008

We are happy to re-open login, and allow users to experience the fresh looking Airline Mogul. It has been in the pipeline for over a year, when myself (StephenM) asked a member of staff to start work on an interm design, with a view to create a totally new design. This started with a new logo, then the change to the green design. Now we have this wonderful design that replicates the modern developments in website design.

On a second note, the Aircraft Market has been completely re-worked with 10 times the previous code, to allow for greater convenience and features for users. There will be a number of extra updates for this feature soon.

Finally, the long awaited launch of Pivate Worlds. These allow you to create a world that you want, from a selection of Countries (Greater than 50 airports) or Continents. Following on you also get to choose a map from a pre-defined selection.

As we are opening to publicly test features, we may have to close login at any time to fix major errors. We hope that within the next day or two, all bugs will have been resolved and normal gameplay can continue.

Thank you for your patience.

There will be a period of downtime on Saturday the 4th of October 2008 between 13:00 UTC and 15:00 UTC approximately. During this time the website will not be available, and a placeholder page will be shown instead.

And Downtime Again

Item 57 - 9 Sep 2008

Greetings again players.

apologies but we must announce that there will likely be downtime this Thursday between midnight and 4AM (EST, GMT-6). This will allow us to install many important security updates on our server. This may improve the load slightly as well, as it does involve a few bug fixes to our database software.

Apologies again for this extended downtime, it was planned to go with the downtime for the prior upgrade however the updates needed were more extensive then initially thought (Whoops. Our bad).

Good luck all, and thank you for your patience.

Air Elbonia, StephenM and the rest of the staff.

Downtime Coming

Item 56 - 29 Aug 2008

Greetings again all. Apologies but there was a snafu with our upgrade request which caused it to be delayed until This Friday (Today or close to it). Between 10am and noon (EST, GMT-6), there will be a relatively brief downtime as a hardware element is upgraded. Later in the afternoon (between noon and 6pm EST, GMT-6) there will be another period of downtime (2 hours or less most likely), as some core software elements are updated on the server. This should improve performance and reduce the lag.

Thank you all for your understanding and patience, apologies again for the delay and late warning.

Server Lag

Item 55 - 22 Aug 2008

Hello all,

I know several of you have noticed some server lag of late, and we have been working actively to try to improve the code to reduce this lag. We have made some notable gains (particularly noticably in pages related to fleets about two weeks ago). We've emerged from talks with our consultant about what our best route is for hardware improvements to help cope with the load put on the server.
As such, we've made a tenative schedule with our host to perform a server upgrade on Wednesday the 27th for some time between 15:00 and 21:00 Zulu (that's 3pm and 9pm Greenwich Mean Time, for those not acquainted with aviation time). The server will be taken down for a period of between 1 minute (highly improbable) and a couple hours (if something goes horribly wrong). We're expecting it to take about an hour to two hours, but cannot make promises as such.
We'll keep you informed of any major changes to this schedule. During any downtime periods where a game-day would normally advance, the day will not advance and we will make no rushed pretense to make up for it. We will attempt to manually kick off the free token script if need be however.
Thank you all for your patience. Air Elbonia, StephenM and the rest of the AM Staff.

Updates Come With Drawbacks

During testing of updated administration systems for Multiworlds there was a fault with user details. We are immediately restoring 8,000 user details using database backups.

Update

After a previous error, we have re-opened Login. This error has effected World #3 and users that registered on Airline Mogul after the Multiworlds Launch. If you registered at AM after the launch of Multiworlds, please notify Staff Email using the email address you registered with.

Ridiculously Long Story

Item 48 - 2 Apr 2008

The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
Many races believe that it was created by some sort of God, though the Airlinianmogalese people of AirSimuline VI believe that the entire Universe was in fact sneezed out of the nose of a being called the Great Green StephenM.
The Airlinianmogalese, who live in perpetual fear of the time they call The Coming of The Great Multiworlds, are small internet surfing creatures with more than fifty planes each, who are therefore unique in being the only race in history to have invented the airplane before the wheel.
However, the Great Green StephenM Theory is not widely accepted outside AirSimuline VI and so, the Universe being the puzzling place it is, other explanations are constantly being sought.
For instance, a race of hyperintelligent pan-dimensional beings once built themselves a gigantic supercomputer called Deep Elbonia to calculate once and for all the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
For seven and a half million years, Deep Elbonia computed and calculated, and in the end announced that the answer was in fact Forty-two — and so another, even bigger, computer had to be built to find out what the actual question was.
And this computer, which was called the AirlineMogul, was so large that it was frequently mistaken for a game — especially by the strange ape-like beings who roamed the Earth’s surface, totally unaware that they were simply part of a gigantic computer program.
And this is very odd, because without that fairly simple and obvious piece of knowledge, nothing that ever happened on the AirlineMogul could possibly make the slightest bit of sense.
Sadly however, the critical moment of readout, just before January 1, 1986, AirlineMogul was unexpectedly demolished by the Admins to make way — so they claimed — for a new hyperspace bypass, and so all hope of discovering a meaning for life was lost for ever.
Or so it would seem.
These ape-like creatures, even those with digital watches or tiny green pieces of paper, have nothing left to do but sit back and watch as the Universe as they know it ends. For those creatures which are hungry, there is always the Restaurant at the End of the Universe:
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe is one of the most extraordinary ventures in the entire history of catering. It has been built on the fragmented remains of ... it will be built on the fragmented ... that is to say it will have been built by this time, and indeed has been -
One of the major problems encountered in time travel is not that of accidentally becoming your own father or mother. There is no problem involved in becoming your own father or mother that a broadminded and well-adjusted family can't cope with. There is also no problem about changing the course of history — the course of history does not change because it all fits together like a jigsaw. All the important changes have happened before the things they were supposed to change and it all sorts itself out in the end.
The major problem is quite simply one of grammar, and the main work to consult in this matter is Dr Dan Streetmentioner's Time Traveller's Handbook of 1001 Tense Formations. It will tell you for instance how to describe something that was about to happen to you in the past before you avoided it by time-jumping forward two days in order to avoid it. The event will be described differently according to whether you are talking about it from the standpoint of your own natural time, from a time in the further future, or a time in the further past and is further complicated by the possibility of conducting conversations whilst you are actually travelling from one time to another with the intention of becoming your own father or mother.
Most readers get as far as the Future Semi-Conditionally Modified Subinverted Plagal Past Subjunctive Intentional before giving up: and in fact in later editions of the book all the pages beyond this point have been left blank to save on printing costs.
The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy skips lightly over this tangle of academic abstraction, pausing only to note that the term "Future Perfect" has been abandoned since it was discovered not to be.
To resume:
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe is one of the most extraordinary ventures in the entire history of catering.
It is built on the fragmented remains of an eventually ruined planet which is (wioll haven be) enclosed in a vast time bubble and projected forward in time to the precise moment of the End of the Universe.
This is, many would say, impossible.
In it, guests take (willan on-take) their places at table and eat (willan on-eat) sumptuous meals whilst watching (willing watchen) the whole of creation explode around them.
This is, many would say, equally impossible.
You can arrive (mayan arivan on-when) for any sitting you like without prior (late fore-when) reservation because you can book retrospectively, as it were when you return to your own time. (you can have on-book haventa forewhen presooning returningwenta retrohome.)
This is, many would now insist, absolutely impossible.
At the Restaurant you can meet and dine with (mayan meetan con with dinan on when) a fascinating cross-section of the entire population of space and time.
This, it can be explained patiently, is also impossible.
You can visit it as many times as you like (mayan on-visit re-onvisiting ... and so on — for further tense-corrections consult Dr Streetmentioner's book) and be sure of never meeting yourself, because of the embarrassment this usually causes.
This, even if the rest were true, which it isn't, is patently impossible, say the doubters.
All you have to do is deposit one penny in a savings account in your own era, and when you arrive at the End of Time the operation of compound interest means that the fabulous cost of your meal has been paid for.
This, many claim, is not merely impossible but clearly insane, which is why the advertising executives of the star system of Bastablon came up with this slogan: "If you've done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe?”…

Alright, so much of that was ripped off or quoted from Douglas Adams, but in all honesty, the AirlineMogul Universe as you know it is about to end. With the end of this age, comes the death of the age system and the birth of Multiworlds. The game may be down for a slightly longer then average time as we drop in all the necessary pieces for this to happen. Many familiar things will be destroyed, modified, touched, or otherwise moved about. In fact, the pink may not even survive. We hope to have some exciting new surprises in the coming days for all, even some benign ones for those who don’t like big surprises. And, as all hope and cry, we hope the beta team here has helped us admins iron out all the real important bugs.
All that’s left is to sit back, relax, and don’t forget your towel. -- Air Elbonia, StephenM, Balint, and the rest of the staff here at AirlineMogul.

Multiworlds are Coming, with a Slight Delay

Item 47 - 25 Feb 2008

Welcome all to 1983!

Good luck, enjoy your starting aircraft in the BAe 146-100, as well as the slightly larger then average cash. We hope that this consoles you as we do our best to wrap up multiworlds by the end of this three year period [including, with luck, most of the bug testing].

Multiworlds are Coming

Item 46 - 25 Feb 2008

Thank you for journeying through the 1970s with us. The age will end shortly on the 24th of Dec, 1974, after that the clock should stop advancing. Please allow us 24hours to reset everything, hopefully this will be the last "reset" ever, at least in its present format. Following the reset, there will be the (now standard) 24 hour idle period for all players to get established on the same footing.
We will be stepping forward in time to 1983 for a quick 3 year round while some final work is done on multiworlds, both fresh code and de-bugging.

It is our fervent wish to have multiworlds out as soon as possible to keep everyone interested. Unfortunately, Stephen and Myself (Air Elbonia) fell a little short on getting it done by the end of this age.

As a consolation prize, for putting up with our slowness as well as a 3 year game, the starting aircraft for 1983 will be significantly better then usual. You'll find out what it is soon enough.
Thank you again.
Air Elbonia, StephenM, and the rest of the staff.

Age Nearly Over

Item 37 - 22 Dec 2007

The age will formally end at 12:15AM EST [or so]. Thank you all for playing, the game will be down for about 24 hours as we retune the games economy and implement a massive alteration to how some key data is stored. Apologies again for the early restart. This next age will be started in the 1970s, by popular demand. A copy of the top ranking countries for the game, as well as for each continent, will be snagged and posted in the forums.
Next age will feature some extensive backend modifications, as well as improved one-way route logic and a slower game economy. Again, it will be a five (5) year round.
In other news, work on finishing up multiworlds is going very well of late, we hope [and present it looks like can achieve] to launch this new feature sometime mid-January.
Thank you all again for playing AirlineMogul in the 1950s, apologies again for the inconvenience this premature reset may have caused.

Birthday Once Again

Item 36 - 17 Dec 2007

To co-inside with the 2nd Birthday of Airline Mogul we have decided to organise a reset for the 22nd of December. This will mean the new round will start on the 23rd of December, 2 years since Airline Mogul first opened. This is to be done for a variety of reasons, people have said the game has gotten saturated and would like a fresh start. This next game round will be a 5 game year round.

The reset will allow the first stage of Multiworlds to be released. In this we will introduce the following;

  • An activation email for all users to cut down on multiple account issues
  • Provide more information on registering about the steps to starting in Airline Mogul, along with details of when to login
  • Allow the next stage of Multiworlds to begin.
  • Allow for several adjustments designed to slow the game pace down.

The game will be reset and to a date not yet decided. We will use the date from the poll on this issue located here.

Item 33 - 11 Oct 2007

So. Terribly sorry, once again, for the buggy restart.
We've fixed all the bugs we could find (with your help at finding them). Nothing serious should be left in that bug category, that we know of. We've re-resetted and extended the time until the game starts by the time lost due to the bugs. Sorry, we shouldn't be seeing a repeat though. Best of luck to all in the 1950s.

D'oh!

Item 32 - 11 Oct 2007

Apologies for all the bugs, we tried to test out as much of the files that were updated as much as we could, but obviously we missed a few important details.

Because of this, We will re-reset the game within 1 day when we have the major bugs (and hopefully most of the minor ones) fixed.

Please take this opportunity to help us make the game as bug free as possible by reporting all bugs in the forums (big or small), try not to have too many repeated threads though. Sorry again from the Dev team. We are trying to fix the bugs as fast as possible.

Nearly Ending

Item 28 - 28 Sep 2007

Greetings and Salutations again from the admins. This is to inform all players that the game will end on Dec 24, 2007 in-game, meaning we're at about 10 realtime days left. When December 24th is reached (or shortly thereafter), the game will be closed down for a day to two days (We will do our best to keep it to under 2 realtime days), During this time this age will be cleaned out, a few backend things will be straightened out and tested. We will be heading back, way back in time for the next age. We hope you have enjoyed this age, and look forward to seeing your return with the next age. This Should be the last time we ever need to shut the site down to end ages. Thank you again for your loyalty to our game, enjoy the last few days until reset. See the forums for more details.

Dedicated Server Online

Item 27 - 15 Sep 2007

Big News!!!

Item 26 - 13 Sep 2007

Alright. we've got ahold of a dedicated server, the files, php, mysql, and such seem to be set up properly at the moment. the last thing (it appears) is to properly transfer over the domain name and an "up to date" copy of the actual database contents. This is likely to happen within the next 24 to 48 hours. We hope this transfer can go smoothly, with no loss of data or the like. DURING THIS PROCESS THE GAME WILL BE FROZEN/OFFLINE. When taken down, we hope to have it back up in a relatively short period of time, but of course. life is a crazy thing some times so i make no promises other then we will be working on it as fast as we can. After this server move, terminals should be introduced shortly, a few bugs patched, and an update to view_routes. Air Elbonia/StephenM and the rest of the Admin team thank you for your patience when this process begins.

Support Us

Item 25 - 31 Aug 2007

We now offer the ability to donate to Airline Mogul. After the game downtime that peaked in mid-August we have decided in the future we are to move to a dedicated server where we can offer multiworlds and less problems that occur with a shared server. To do this however it will be a 2000% increase in our costs, and so we will not be rushing out any time soon! If however you would like to see this move take place sooner you can support Airline Mogul by donating via PayPal below.

Item 23 - 20 Aug 2007

Site Issues (Largely) Resolved. It appears the site is stable and back to its old self now. As the date was (earlier) reset back a month when it initially looked like it quieted down, the present date will be left alone. All appropriate logs, however, are being monitored and appear to be reporting thusfar the problem being fixed for the time being. Air Elbonia and the Admin Team.

We will sort it out as soon as possible, apologies to all for the half-playable state the game is in at present and the inconvenience. We will likely reset the in-game calander to Dec 1 2003 when we return the site to its normal (mostly) stable self again. Air Elbonia, StephenM, and the Admin Team.
