just a few ideas for travel

-the ability to access peoples bazaar, through a laptop
a bit like online shopping, you can "order" from their bazaar, and you will get it back when you come back to torn

-SkyMall
so the idea is basically, like in real life, you can buy things on planes, with some exclusive "on plane" items, that you can only buy on the planes, a swell as exclusives depending on the flight
eg a toy 717 plane, available on all the planes, or Duty-free alcohol, which could just be cheaper alcohol, only available for flights within the EU or what ever the boundary is for duty free,

other items which are only available flying to and from certain countries, like "in flight meals" for long haul flights, for an extra fee on your flight, which could be used to reduce your flight time a little or if you can bring it back from say china, it will add say 20 energy when you eat it.


- pay for headphones for the in flight movie
so say you are on a long flight, you pay to "watch" the movie, and it makes time fly, and makes the journey "seem shorter", reducing your flight time by a factor

-travel insurance
as medical items cant be used abroad, maybe allow people to buy travel insurance prior to flying
and different levels of cover
so basic: lasts for 4 journeys, reduces your hospital time abroad by 1/4
med cover: lasts for 6 journeys reduces your hospital time by 2/5th
premium cover: lasts for 10 journeys, reduces your hospital time by a half

I do not agree with purchasing from peoples bazaars while in flight especially since now you can not do it in the hospital why should you be able to do it on a aeroplane?

The skymall idea actually is pretty good with a little bit of work I can see that one actually being done. That you would be able to get items only available in flight and if you limited how much you could buy perhaps 5 and the items not always be in stock so to make the items a bit rarer. It would be a nice perk for people who travel. Though would you need space in how many items you could carry? Also would it only be for regular travel, would it work if you have a private island and a pilot? Would it work with the wind lines travel benefit? Would there be different items for the different modes of travel?

Also what would the items be?

i would say that it would work on any public forum for plane travel,so travel agency or business class ticket, perhaps using the business class ticket gives you different options of what to buy, skymall in real life is an order something and get it, you could do it from home a swell, but i was thinking more along the lines of the little things, they sell on flight, so toys, food, drink, more for the collectible sake than anything else, different things coming and going to countries would also be a thought, if you are flying from torn to a country you just have the TornAir merch, but flying back you could have,(china example again) Chinese food/drink/toys. as for limits, id say if you bought some on your way there, it would add to your travel item limit, weight on the return plane, but if you buy it on the way back, the weight would already be on the plane, so a separate item limit if its on the way back to torn for maybe 5 or 6 items.


for the items not always in stock, it could be the items are periodically removed from stock as the flight goes on because other passengers will be eating the food, and buying the products in the plane


a few ideas for items that i can think of off the top of my head
toy plane
travel pillow
travel blanket
fizzy drinks(soda)
travel sized crisps
bag of peanuts
a pair of wings(the little flight wing badges, apparently you can get them if you ask flight attendants nicely, they look cool)
vomit bag( this could be free)
again for some flights duty free alcohol, and for the others the alcohol could just be more expensive

some idea for returning items could be
small wavable flags, just one that you would hold in your hand, and people would try to collect them all
certain toys based on the area, that are just too "cheap" to sell in the actual country, like airport mementos, like in london it could be like a plastic big ben toy, or a London eye toy, and chinia it could be the Great wall of china,

more unusual items could also be addded for differnt places

another thought, this is a bit like the movie, but you could sell alcoholic drinks on the plane, like in plastic cups, so each one with take off some time from flight because you're drunk, so it doesnt seem that long, but if you get too drunk you get restrained by aeroplane security, and jailed landing back in torn, or the other country for the reason " harassing aero plane staff" or "creating a secuirty alert"

I like the SkyMall idea, I always think some of those products seem interesting (a waste of money though!)

the laptop idea is nice.
maybe the ability could be balanced, with a random msg "..you forgot to take your laptop" (something like that?)

those things you suggested (special items brought on planes) would be nice also as random events (having to trigger the shop first)

the faster headphone travel-time thing is good also.. especially as just a rnd event.. that and other stuff >:)

Skymall idea is great! You could alternate it (the items(s)) based on destination.

perhaps, such as in real life, players could pay to board with extra luggage? I'd prefer to see this require point useage over cash, tbh
