The Airship Store - To Spend or Not To Spend Your Coins and Green Notes During Game Play
I have written this user guide to provide you with information in relation to the airship store. The user guide will focus on the different types of resource items for sale, how much it will cost you to purchase them and if you really need to spend your coins and green notes on buying them.

The user guide is for those of you who have been playing your game for a period of time, and have yet to purchase and explore the airship store and all that it will have to offer. The user guide will allow you to look ahead, at one aspect of your game, if you decide that this is for you. The user guide will also be for those of you who are further along with your game, have access to the airship store and would like to have a better understanding of the airship store, before you commit yourself to a purchase.

The Airship
The airship will appear twice a week, on Monday and Thursday mornings. You will need to have the Airship Dock (available from game level 9) building in place, located on the airport side of your game, so the airship can automatically dock with the structure. Once docked, the airship will remain on screen for 24 hours, during which time, you will be able to purchase resource items.

The airship will have a wide variety of resource items for sale, but they will come at a price. The amount you will need to pay will depend on the resources in question, the more valuable the resource items are, the more it will cost you to purchase them.

The Airship Store
To access the airship store you will need to select the blue and red round airship icon, which will be located on the left hand side of your game. Once selected, the menu will appear on your screen, along the top row of the menu, there will be five themed icons:

First Icon - Adventure Maps
There will be a selection of resource items for sale. The amount you will need to pay will depend on your choice, Excavation Map (16 single maps) - this will cost you 2,000 coins to purchase one single map, Excavation Map Set (16 chest sets) - this will cost you 5 green notes to purchase a set containing 20 items required for flights and Map Set (16 chest sets) - this will cost you 12 green notes to purchase a set containing 3 random maps.​
The excavation map sets can also be purchased through the game store. To access the menu, you will need to select the first icon along the bottom of your screen (the shopping trolly on wheels). Once selected, you will then need to select the eighth icon along the top row of the menu. The 16 map sets will be located towards the bottom of the menu, you will need to scroll down to see them, they will each cost 5 green notes.​
You will find more detailed information in the following user guide, Excavation Maps and The Plane Types Required To Undertake Flight Destinations, located in the airport city guides sub section.​
Additional Information
Above the row of five themed icons, you will find on display the total number of coins and green notes you have amased during your game. By selecting them, you will be taken to the bank where you will find three themed icons, Tokens, Coins and Airport Cash. Each of these options will have six items for sale, prices and quanity will vary considerably.​
You will also be able to obtain a bonus, which will be on sale at a reduced price, and sometimes you will be able to obtain a free gift item e.g. fuel catalyst, passengers and fuel. On very rare occassions you will be able to collect one free green note. My reason for mentioning this here, is to provide you with a more complete picture, as to the purchase options which will be available to you.​
Second Icon - Passengers and Fuel
There will be a selection of resource items for sale, Fuel (150 units) - 10 green notes, Tourists (100) - 8 green notes and Passengers (300) - 6 green notes. You can also obtain passengers and fuel during game play e.g. from residential and tourist buildings, fuel station, passenger and fuel drops from multiple guest planes, passenger and fuel gifts from your neighbours and fuel from space program flights.​
Third Icon - Game Bonuses
There will be a selection of game bonus items for sale, Inconvertable Coin (3 hours) - 8 green notes, Mystery Bonus - 8,000 coins (receive one random bonus), Mystery Bonus - 5 green notes, Golden Toad (instantly available) - 8 green notes, Alarm Clock (instantly available) - 8 green notes, Family Tickets (3 hours) - 8 green notes and Vintage Weatervane (6 hours) - 8 green notes. You can also obtain these bonus items during long term game play by e.g. completing flight collections etc.​
By selecting a bonus item for sale, a brief description will appear on the right hand side of the menu, which will give you brief information e.g. the function of the bonus and its working parameters. It is important you make the most of your bonus, during its activation period, some of these will only be active for a few hours.​
Fourth Icon - Space Program
There will be a selection of space resource items for sale, which you will need to use to power green, blue and red space flight vehicles, Main Stabilizer - 2 green notes, Powerful Explosive Bolt - 6 green notes and Quantum Leap - 350 green notes. These sale items are the most important, of all the resources, which go to make-up the fuel range for space flights. You can also obtained these items during game play.​
You will find more detailed information in the following user guide, The Space Program - How To Undertake Green, Blue and Red Launch Flights, located in the airport city guides sub section.​
Fifth Icon - Building Chests
There will be a selection of resource items for sale, Mystery Building One - 10 green notes, Mystery Building Two - 10 green notes, Mystery Super Building One - 65 green notes, Mystery Super Building Two - 65 green notes, Mystery Super Building Three - 65 green notes, Mystery Super Building Four - 65 green notes (you will receive one random building from each of these chests) and Duty Free Set - 1,000 coins​
These types of buildings can also be obtained through the daily mission, which will not require you to spend any coins and green notes. You will find more detailed information in the following user guide, How To Obtain Mystery Buildings and How To Obtain Mystery Super Buildings, located in the airport city guides sub section.​

The Preview Button
The airship store preview button (located in the bottom right hand corner of the menu) will allow you to look inside the following sale resource items, Mystery Bonus Chests, Excavation Map Sets, Mystery Buildings and Mystery Super Buildings. Although you will have no control over the contents of these chests, it will give you some idea of what you may receive from within them. It will help you to decide if the chest in question is really worth it. I would suggest you make use of this feature, it could save you from wasting your valuable green notes.

To Spend or Not To Spend Your Coins and Green Notes
As you will have seen from reading through this user guide, it can be expensive to purchase resource items from the airship store. On the one hand it will save you a great deal of game play time to purchase these resources, but on the other hand they will all come at a price.

It will be up to you to decide if you find these resource sale items exceptable, and if so, how much you are prepared to spend. There will also be the issue as to how often you are prepared to make a purchase. Whatever your decision, it will be important you do not rush into making a decision. It should be made from an informed position, and this can only be achieved, when you have all the facts to hand. The facts here are that many of the resource items for sale, can be obtained for free during game play, given time and patience. As to how much game play time and patience you have, is a matter for you to decide.

One thing is for certain, it is far easier to spend your hard earned coins and green notes, but not so easy to replenish them once you have spent them. This is especially true for green notes, which are hard to come by. Since you are relatively new to the game, it will be advisable to spend them, to expand the city side and airport side of your game during the weekend land discount period (this opens once every two weeks), rather than spend them on resource items that you can obtain for free.

As for the adventure maps, 2,000 coins is not an unreasonable amount of money to spend on each single map. If you do decide to purchase these maps, it will be wise to buy map destinations you are able to fly to, based on the type of planes you have in your fleet at the time. You will therefore need to ensure your planes are able to undertake flight destinations to given locations, before you start to purchase them.

Airport City User Guides
There are many user guides located in the Airport City Guides sub section, of the members forum, which will give you more detailed information pertaining to the space program, building chests and adventure maps. You should make sure to avail youself of these user guides, they are there to help you with your game.

Thanks Captain for these regular guides - I have yet to find one you have prepared that is not useful. I remember spending good money (well between £10 and £20) on the user guides for games. And you prepare the same type of information - for free :)

The advice on what to spend your (real) money on has to be down to the individual.

I see many people on this forum encouraging people to spend little or nothing on their game. That is great if you have the time to invest (but less disposable income). But time for many of us is expensive. The most interesting items in Duke Crookers store do not come free. 8 green cash for Vintage Weathervane is expensive (relatively to other game aspects) but the ability to speed up flights by 35% for 6 hours makes such a bonus good value if you do not have the time to use fuel catalysts regularly. And I have used Duke Crooker to buy Mystery Super Buildings for 65 green cash in the hope that a Planetarium drops :eek: And judging by the number of my neighbours with 6 planetariums - many others buy through the Duke too.

It is very important to consider what you can afford, and spend no more than that. But sometimes, buying green cash (but only through two weekly sale please) is a very good way of enhancing your enjoyment of this game. And Duke Crooker's store does have some very useful items, (y)

Many thanks for your post and for taking the time to express your thoughts. My apologies for not responding sooner, your post set me off on a train of thought, which made me revisit the user guide. I really do appreciate hearing from forum members, it is important to know what members think, I find it invaluable.

The decision to spend or not to spend should be made from a well informed position, which is one of the reasons why I wrote the user guide. I would hate for a new player to purchase a resource sale item, only to discover later on, they could have obtained it for free, given time and patience. As long as they have all the information to hand, through reading this user guide, they can then decide for themselves what is the right thing to do for their game.

Many thanks once again.
