You say the AI should define for itself when to buy what airliner, yet you're giving it all these parameters?
If you're telling the AI exactly to buy what airliner, how many airliners and when it should buy them, how should the AI define its needs?
If you say buy 10 airliners this year, but the airline can only afford 1 because you competed very well on its routes, why should it buy 10?
Ok, you say it should take a loan, but it can't earn enough money to repay the loan.
And then comes the next order that it can't afford.
This either makes it very easy to defeat AI, because it puts itself in an incredible debt and thus it's game over for the AI.
Or it makes it impossible to defeat AI, as it gets the planes for free..
I really think we shouldn't tell the airline at all when it should buy how many airliners.
The airline should feel its economic environment and adjust to it.
It looks at its preferred routes, checks the distance, demand and the optimized frequency and then checks what airliners are best for that mission.
This will give a much more organic feel to the game as the airline won't always do the same.
I added the param for replaceable, but I forgot to add one important thing.
This param gives the possibility to completely ignore the input if the airliner doesn't have enough money or he thinks that he can't profit from it:
I just re-read the thread I posted.
Sorry, i forgot this one.
