Product Update - Valve
Airline Tycoon Patch 1.20 Changelog
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Features:

- Trading of shares
- If you’re looking a quick buck, you’re in exactly the right place. Sell shares of your airline at a high price, invest in profitable competitors, or try to drive them out of business through a hostile takeover. But be careful: the market is in a constant state of flux! If you get too greedy and miscalculate, you could be operating in the red ... or even worse!
-- Trading of shares is available via the banker in the airport bank as well as the laptop in your office.
-- In the trading interface you will find information about the value of each airline, the distribution of shares and projections regarding the future of the company.
-- The Bad Bank acts as an additional participant. It buys the Tycoons’ shares and makes them freely available for all other participants.
-- If you own shares in airlines yourself or if some are available from the Bad Bank, then you can adjust the amount of shares to be traded using the arrow buttons.
-- The transaction is only carried out and made active with confirmation via the green arrow button.
-- Shareholders are entitled to dividends dependant upon the company’s daily profit and the amount of shares owned.
-- If a Tycoon possesses at least 75% of an enemy airline, then he can dissolve the company by using the red X button.
-- During liquidation, either all airplanes can be sold and the staff fired, or they can be added to your own company.
-- The trading of shares is only available in free play.
