FSAirlines - a fresh new start!
Hello to all Pilots and Virtual Airline Managers,
as you might have experienced in the last few months we, the FSAirlines Team, did not manage to provide the support & communication that we would have liked to.
This was due to all of us starting new jobs in our "real lives", which took up the time we would have needed for our daily FSAirlines tasks.
Although it is not an easy task to run a big platform like FSAirlines in part-time, we still love our virtual airline manager and are planning to make it a lot more awesome in the future!
FSAirlines is far from dead!
We are glad to announce our measures which we are going to set in place in the coming weeks in order to improve the overall quality & user-experience of FSAirlines:
Automated handling of "Cheated-Flights"
"Cheated-Flights" can be caused by a multitude of problems. In most cases the corrupted flight-data is not intended by the pilot or airline.
Still the number of flights marked as cheated go into the hundreds every month and need manual actions by an admin every single time.
In most cases the required action could have been determined & executed by an automated script.
We are happy to tell you that we have already written this automated script, which is currently being tested on our beta-system and will soon be active in the productive system.
Democratization of Airport / Aircraft-Type edit-requests
Another time consuming admin-task is the review of new airports/aircraft-types or the editing of existing ones.
We are going to introduce a community-vote system for such tasks.
This means, that edits to our database are (dis-)approved automatically when a certain amount of pilots (from different virtual airlines) vote for/against it.
This will lead to less delay between a change-request and it's realization.
New website & crew-center
For the last few months we were working on a completely revamped FSAirlines website & crew-center.
Finally we are in a stage where we can present you the hard work.
The new system improves the overall user-interface and usability of FSAirlines.
You can check out the new system at beta.fsairlines.net/crewcenter.
your FSAirlines Team!
