Hi everyone! I am a huge TT fan (spent many many many many hours on it) and enjoyed playing all types of tycoon games.

A while ago, I have this idea of writing my own online airline management game with deep simulation and it is now live on http://www.airline-club.com :D

It's free for everyone to enjoy, would really appreciate any feedback and suggestions! As this is my hobby project, I plan to keep it open source and free.

My goal is to have a simulation good enough to generate data similar to real world's, while giving flexibility to simulate new outcome based on the dynamics of the conditions.

Several highlights:
- Deep simulation of virtual passengers behavior - they will have their own preferences : connections, price, flight quality, loyalty to airline etc
- Challenging gameplay - The game is very challenging, even as a developer, I am challenged all the time to improve my routes and rethink my strategy
- Compete with real players - The game is an open world with hundreds of players. There are airline alliance/code sharing and the community is very active
- Active development - The game is under active development. I am also planning on the first expansion to add space travel https://www.reddit.com/r/tycoon/comments/954zqu/opensource_airline_management_game_airline_clubs/
- Free and open source - The source of the game is open and I do not plan to monetize the game
- Friendly community - Check out the game forums at https://airlineclub.createaforum.com/

There are already 500+ players competing with each other in this virtual aviation world. Hope to see you there too!

This looks spectacularly detailed. Without having installed it yet, are there levels of difficulty? I'd prefer to be able to make the customers more accepting and easy-to-manage, essentially rendering more flights profitable and making the game easier.

Many thanks for your interest! And the good news is, this is a web-based game therefore you can start playing without installing :D https://www.airline-club.com

That being said, this is an opened and single game world shared with hundreds of players, therefore you are competing with real players so unfortunately difficulty level cannot be set on per player basis.


I have made the game relatively easy for starting the first few routes and if you have any questions/problems playing the game, feel free to ask me or simply visit the game forums for suggestions and help : https://airlineclub.createaforum.com/

Hope to see you in the game soon! :D

I have problems signing up to your site. After filling out all the fields and clicking on "sign up", the only thing that comes up is a text saying "recaptcha check failed". I already tried signing up with all the Firefox addons that could possibly block something disabled, but no dice.

As someone with an interest in aviation, this sounds like it could be fun! :D

hmm there was a report with the recaptcha problem as you have described (it's google V3 still in beta). One user disabled ad-blocker and it worked, however some others reported that there are still problems

Would you mind to use chrome to signup? Or use your mobile phone?

The recaptcha check is only done once on signup, once you have an account no further checks will be done therefore you can play on any browser afterwards!

Sorry about the inconvenience again!

Indeeed! And the players interaction are so much fun. There are airline alliances out there battling for dominance in various countries. There are good strategic play as airlines in the same alliance have code sharing (hence virtual passengers are more willing to take connection flight within the same alliance!)

Below is one of the flight network of the top alliance (unfortunately not mine, mine is #2 only ...)

I've tried all the ways you've suggested but still get the recaptcha check failed message every time. Is there another way to sign up you can suggest?

Woot Gratz!! USA is quite competitive, fight hard ;)

Have you joined any airlines alliance yet? On top of having some friendly airlines to fight by your side, you also get to code share with them and that would boost your ridership, top alliances also give extra bonus

Anyone up for an Alliance?

I remember how well we did in 'Trukz' for a while... and it was fun.

I would love to but I'm in one already :wink:

Make sure to coordinate with your teammates of which market to take down. The #1 alliance (not mine ...) works very effectively together and have a big lead now
