New Website
#1
As you all can see, we launched our new website today.

If you find any issues, or have ideas for improvements please let us know. Wink

The tutorial section of the website will continuously be worked on as new features are implemented in the game.

Looks a bit 90's to me.

Well, you asked for it so...

overall personally i would just slap a wordpress theme on a wordpress install.

Ok so

Why the depressing grey? How about airline/sky light blue? How about taking inspiration from real airlines websites?

Homepage
Changelog on the homepage? Maybe it's a thing with alphas but few will read this. Just keep the changelog on its own page.
Replace download on itch to download via itch ( not everybody knows what itch is and some might not understand coming on a website to have to download on another).
The tagline is ok, could be better but it's ok. The font is terrible thought.
That "spayed cloud" background for the plane is terrible, instead of needing it you should use a background more suitable for the plane.

The game
imho features should be on the homepage rather than the changelog but either way:
Don't switch sides all the time, in fact i would avoid boxes altogether.
Really boxes with shadows are very 90s.
Could possibly be renamed features.

Tutorials and tips
that's a bit long, i'd just use one or the other.

Devblog
not everyone is familiar with the term, i'd just name it blog

FAQ
dem boxes again.
I'd use dropdowns.

Really i'd just look at the major games websites and major airlines website and just try to emulate what i can via a popular wordpress theme ( check the themeforest best selling ones of the week/month) with a high amount of excellent quality ratings.

You did ask for it so i hope you won't track me down to murder me ( well i'm using a VPN anyway ).

The website can wait for now but eventually it will be important for conversion, aka for people who come to it to actually download the game.

That's just a very quick look, but if you're willing to improve things i can take the time criticize more deeply XD

But really getting some kind of pre-made template and modifying it would go a long way.

Please don't murder me yet, i need to play the fully released finished game before i die, thank you.

I see your points. I'll take a look at what improvements are possible tomorrow. (it's getting late here now)

I just went with the colors from the game. Wink

I did take a look at some other game sites actually. But we don't have the graphics to show to do it that way.
I was thinking about creating a full screen banner for the home page later on, but that's going to take a while.

That's why i would advise to just use a wordpress template, such as https://themeforest.net/item/avada-respo...me/2833226 ( just the top selling one with the most sales and positive reviews, that particular theme is cheap enough for what you get and wordpress itself is free )

This way you just need to tweak things around rather than building everything from scratch.

I can give a hand if you need.

Homepage its okey. Design is made to resemble the look in the game, make it have its own value.

But for meta seo its bad. you just make url/page.html not include dir. maybe can you make as url/dir/page example http://theairlineproject.net/tutorial/tr...uting.html
url is made to resemble a website one page, but each page has its own element

and for faq, you can make with accordion style. It will make it easier and not have to read 2 times as shown now.

Overall, the current website is better than the past!

Thank you so much for update!

I like the look of the new website and that it reflects the look of the game :-)
