Mudspike Air Cargo

I remember it well - the YC-14, if I’m not mistaken - which was competing against the YC-15 as the USAF next main transport, supposedly to replace the C-130. Never happened, of course.

I remember being quite disappointed, as I quite liked it.

Edit: d’oh! says it on the side - twice! :unamused:

She’s got huge…inlets!

Not a fan of the Cherubashka either, I take it.

Despite the ugly contract from yesterday morning where I lost money (or more correctly - damage), I managed to pull in about $35,000 flying a few more trips, which officially tips me past the point where I was on July 22 when I sold the Norway operation and moved to Mud Lake. Not only do I have more cash, I have a more valuable aircraft…so altogether I’m probably 100K better off than I was…but it took a lot of cargo hauling to get back to where I was…!

As well, Overall Reputation is sitting at 32.20, up from 24.2 when I sold the Norway operation…so we are getting closer to that 40 goal…!

…and for those wondering…I’m going to try to run this company as a single pilot / aircraft operation. Yes, I know I could hire AI pilots and get another plane and make more money faster…but I’m seeing how far/long it will take to build this company up from a Lone Wolf standpoint…

It’s just me…and the dog…

Total $428.00 AUD

Luckily paying in Australian dollars hides the true cost! It’s paying for itself already!! :slight_smile:


#168

With AUD…you just move the decimal left one space right? Right??


#169

In the AH1 days I could get up to 100% rep within a few days. In AH2 I think it will take a lot longer.

If @Bogusheadbox manages to get the Aardvark program back up and in the National Budget, then yes, pretty much.


#171

Alrighty then…let’s give this back country stuff a whirl again…this time 1U2 up to 2U5…a Forestry Service strip about 163 nm northwest of Mud Lake…

Looks like a fun little trip…!


#172

Made it in just fine…


#173

Wingroot mounted engines are so under appreciated unfortunately…


#174

Interesting. I think it’s your distance and airport size settings (i.e. lower than mine) that’s giving you the density of activity that I’ve not seen. In my case I get long distance relocation flights and little ability to chain things. More flying required to see if that helps.


#175

I find it’s nothing unusual to have relatively few jobs on offer. It can depend on many things, though.

When I started a company a week or so ago, I found I had about 10 outbound jobs and not a single inbound. I’ve had similar issues with AH1, but Duncan (AH dev) wasn’t able to come up with a reason for it.


#176

@Agent_X20 AND @Brix - I haven’t tried it, but if you move the job settings slider in options and then hit the jobs refresh button - does it instantly change the jobs available? I’d try it, but I’m not home…


#177

I’m fairly sure you have to wait for the current jobs to expire or for the next day to roll around to generate new jobs with the revised settings.


#178

Yes, that’s the case. Unless you buy a different aircraft, when it should supply new jobs for that aircraft.


#179

Back to “work” this morning…
