Rental Planes

Post by Bastoska on Thu May 22, 2014 8:03 pm

So I see GI has added another avenue to entice us to spend green cash. Welcome the rental plane. Now you can fly to any destination that you don't have a aircraft for by buying a one-time flight silver rental plane. Obvious that GI wants us to spend more real money with this latest update, but it does present some interesting possibilities.

I think it's quite annoying, when you accidentally hit the button, you'll spend your greenies on a flight you don't want. I'd rather have seen a confirmation option.

Besides that, it's really expensive, 3 greenies for a flight with a jet? I don't think I'll ever use this option.

Oh, I'm sure I'll use the option accidentally. just like fixing the largest planes. I've clicked that one several times.

Thanks g! for another worthless 'feature' to spend the greens.

Hi,

That is the reason why I have not updated to this version, well, until the next event. Will it be the UFO event?

Some more verified information on rental planes;
They will drop items available at the location with what seems like the normal rate.
They WILL NOT credit your flight count towards the next skill level for the destination. In other words, rental planes will not count as flights made to get "stars".
My rental planes seem to jump past the flight acceleration points. Not sure why you would waste fuel catalyst on a one time rental, just noticed it while I was accelerating my own jets.

The rental planes are silver planes, so they are faster then your normal planes. The don't jump past your acceleration point, they are just earlier there then your normal planes.

Yes, they are silver planes. Specifically I had regular planes that were due to reach their acceleration point in 1 hour and 47 minutes. The rental plane that I was also flying was due to reach it's acceleration point in 1 hour and 49 minutes. When I went back into the game to accelerate my jets that were less than 30 seconds away from their acceleration point, the silver rental was already past its point. I own a sliver giant, and have had no problems accelerating it when I need to, so the rental planes did not act like normal silver planes for me.

More verified results with the rentals. Rental flights will count towards your weekly total on the world map. Between cheaters and those with large amounts of green to spend, I don't see much chance for the average player to make the top ten.  pale

Thanks to this rental planes-update you can't see which flightitems are needed for each destination, I mean this:



There used to be an icon (or two) of the needed flightitems, but it's all text now. I hope GI will change this back to how it was and make the flightitems visible again.

It's clear in the English version "......do not require fuel, passengers or flight items". The rental flights don't use any flight items from your stores, only green. Destinations for which you have available planes will still show required fuel, passengers and flight items.

I think Cosmo meant that you can't tell what items you need for a given flight with a *regular* plane if you don't already have that type of plane available - that's good to know if you want to stock up on that item before you have the planes to fly to that destination.

Yeah, that's exactly what I meant, but I know GI so I'm afraid they won't change it back...  Wink

^^^^^ Cosmo, after re-reading your post I understand what you meant. Looks like we need to create a thread showing what items are needed for which location. Shouldn't be that hard to do.

Update - Rental planes are now counting as flights completed to a location for awarding of stars. Simply put, you can buy your stars now.

Already the fourth time I waste precious green bucks by pressing a rental plane by mistake. Sad

Lack of confirmation for sending is really getting annoying...

And I'm sure that's completely on purpose. GI is all about getting you to spend greens.

Your wish has been granted. If you select a rental plane you now get a confirmation window to asking you if you really want a rental plane. Guessing it was included with the baggage hall update.
