Belgian Airlines
#1
I created an xml for Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium.

I don't know the names for the colours by heart, so I just left it like it was. (it should be some blue (or yellow for the current color scheme))
I also don't know when they bought what airliner, so I just left it like it was. (I set the correct amount of airliners though).

About the destinations, I don't know where they fly from what airport (from Brussels [BRU] or Liege [LGG]).
So I set Brussels (main hub) to every destination and Liege to some destinations I thought were reasonable.

Also, I don't think they fly (flew) to Lille (which is just across the border of our tiny country). Maybe this was a 'departure' airport as well?
If somebody can aknowledge this, I'll add it in.



Thomas cook Belgium is as of march 2017 part of Lufthansa, but I don't think I can set that anywhere?


Up next: TUI Fly Belgium (Jetairfly)


No xml allowed? anyway, here is the code:

Thanks and for the colors you can use the ones here: http://www.flounder.com/csharp_color_table.htm

I will add this one to the game right away

If it is a merger, than we can add it to the merger file?

excuse me, but what do you mean by a merger?

edit: ok, I found the merger folder.

yes we add it to the merger file I guess..

It's kind of a complicated history though.. (at least I don't know how I would implement it).

Thomas cook airlines belgium was founded in 2001 (first flight in 2002) as part of Thomas Cook Group (travel agency, not an airline).
In 2003 Condor became part of Thomas Cook Group.
In 2003 JMC was rebranded to Thomas Cook (UK) (currently it's founded in 2008 ingame?).
in 2008 Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia (formerly MyTravel Airways(Premiair before 2001)) became part of Thomas Cook Group.
Wiki


edit:
slightly offtopic, but do you have by any chance a list of the countries each number stands for?

If you are able to read from a xml file, then you should be able to see it here: https://github.com/TheAirlineProject/tap...ntries.xml

If not I will create the list from the code :-)

Thanks, that's what I was looking for Smile

So, I did some new testing and altered the file a bit.

Few problems I still have:
  • If you start the company (AI or as your airline) in the era of the fist logo (2001-2012 in this case), it still displays the logo from the second era.*
    Am I doing something wrong?
  • The airline (as an AI) ignores the preferred aircraft and buys a Cessna. This is probably related to the game though, instead of this xml file?
    I'll post something in the suggestions forum to prevent from going off-topic in this topic.
  • The airline ignores the focus airports. Idem, I'll post something in the suggestions forum.
  • The airlines changed it's IATA code, is there a way I can implement this? (Also, both IATA codes have been used by other airlines)
*the logos are in the attachment.


As soon as I'm satisfied with this Airline, I'll start working on Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia. (and maybe updating Thomas Cook (UK) and Condor if I'm allowed and it's necessary).
I'll continue working on TUIfly if the Thomas Cook Group is Finished







Edit: Question about the merger file: how would you add a few airlines which belong to the same parent company, while the parent company isn't an airline (in this case a travel agency)?
Is this even possible in the current state? If not, what would you do with these airlines?

I could add it as subsidiaries to the first subsidiary created (In this case Thomas Cook Belgium), but this particular subsidiary gets sold in 2017..

Also, is it possible to change the airlines' names at a specified time?

Thanks for the airline and I will have to look into the things you ask about.

Edit: Question about the merger file: how would you add a few airlines which belong to the same parent company, while the parent company isn't an airline (in this case a travel agency)? That is not possible and we usually just create them as seperated airlines

Also, is it possible to change the airlines' names at a specified time?
It is possible in the xml to specify it, but I see that it hasn't been fully implemented in the current version (which I will look in to)
