    How To Create A Members Alliance Group and How To Join A Members Alliance Group
    I have created this user guide for those of you who have been playing the game of Airport City for awhile, and are planning on setting up a members alliance group or joining a members alliance group. This user guide will take you through the process, and help you to decide which of the two options is best for you.

    How To Create A Members Alliance Group
    To create a members alliance group you will need to purchase the 'Airline Alliance HQ' building, available from game level 10, the purchase price is 50,000 coins and the construction time is 12 hours (you can also speed up the construction progress by spending 500 coins). It can be purchased from the store, airport buildings and can only be placed on the airport side of your game.

    Once the building is solid and live, you will then be able to open and view the menu, by clicking on the Airline Alliance HQ building. The menu has two clickable buttons, the first is labelled 'Alliance' and displays the name of the alliance, the progress bar, the number of alliance reputation points, the number of alliance members in the group, the group ranking and the total number of passengers carried. The second clickable button is labelled 'Views' and displays the group members, the number of stars they have, the number of passengers they have carried during the week and the option to visit each of their games sites.

    Since your alliance is newly created, and you are currently the only member, there will be no useful information displayed. You will only be able to have a maximum number of four flyers in your members alliance group at first. You will therefore need to be selective, who you accept, will be based on the number of passengers they are able to carry across a week and how many alliance tasks they are able to complete. This is dependent on a number of factors e.g. the number of planes they have in their fleet, the types of planes they have in their fleet, the number of residential buildings producing passengers, the amount of fuel they have stockpiled, the amount of flight items stored in their warehouse, how much land they have to grow their city and airport and how much game time they spend per day and/or per week playing their game.

    To help answer some of your questions I would suggest you look at their game sight, which will give you a good feel for their game. You should also look at their signature page, to find out the game level they are on, the number of star skills they have and their hearts level status. All these are small pieces of the same puzzle, which form a much larger and clearer picture.

    Those who wish to join your alliance may be relatively new to the game, which means their passenger carrying capacity will be limited at first. But, with the passing of game time, this will increase. It is also possible that they will have left an existing alliance, the reason's for this will vary, and are looking to join a new alliance. All these things you will need to take into consideration when deciding who to take on-board your alliance.

    I would strongly suggest you only accept players who are forum members, if you accept non forum members, you will not be able to communicate with them through the members forum. The members forum has a section called 'Airport City Alliances', which has two sub-headings. The first is labelled 'Alliance', this is where you will create your alliance thread and communicate with members. The second is labelled 'Alliance Questions', this is where you will post any questions you or your fellow flyers may have.

    At first it will be difficult for your alliance to earn reputation points, this you will find frustrating, as does all who travel along this road. It will be many weeks, perhaps a few months, before you finally earn your first point or points. Once you have earned enough alliance reputation points, by collectively completing the weekly alliance missions and being ranked, you will be able to invite more forum members to join your group using the alliance thread. The progress bar in your menu will indicate when you are able to invite more players to join your group.

    The more members you have, the more passengers you will be able to carry, the higher up the alliance ratings table you will finish and the greater the rewards will be for your group. By clicking on the blue 'information' button, you will see that the size of alliance groups will vary. Some groups will have upwards of 20 members, while other groups will have as little as 4 members, and all those alliance groups in between.

    Ratings League Table (Top 100 Alliance Groups)
    To access the ratings league table you will first need to select the square rostrum icon, the 7th icon along the bottom of your game screen. Once selected, you will then need to select the rectangular icon, (gold in colour), the second icon along the top row of the menu.

    The alliance ratings league table has two clickable buttons, situated on the right hand side of the table. The first is labelled 'This Week' and lists the top 100 alliance groups and their passenger figures for the current week. The second button is labelled 'Last Week' and lists the top 100 alliance groups, their passenger figures for the previous week and two reward chest's earned for finishing in the top 100.

    I would suggest you spend some time looking through the alliance league ratings table, especially the button labelled 'Last Week'. It will give you a good idea as to the passenger numbers required to rank in the top 100, the types of rewards you will earn and the reward items stored within them (the first reward chest will contain a bonus, fuel and passengers, the second reward map set will contain a random purple map or maps, the number will depend on where your alliance group finish). The following lists the top 10 place finish:

    1st place finish - Golden Alliance Chest (the chest contains a Quantum Leap bonus, 300 units of fuel and 300 passengers) and Alpha Map Set (the set contains 12 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    2nd place finish - Silver Alliance Chest (the chest contains a Sky Captain bonus, 150 units of fuel and 150 passengers) and Beta Map Set (the set contains 4 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    3rd place finish - Silver Alliance Chest (the chest contains a Sky Captain bonus, 150 units of fuel and 150 passengers) and Beta Map Set (the set contains 4 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    4th place finish - Silver Alliance Chest (the chest contains a Sky Captain bonus, 150 units of fuel and 150 passengers) and Beta Map Set (the set contains 4 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    5th place finish - Large Bronze Alliance Chest (the set contains a Golden Dice bonus, 50 units of fuel and 50 passengers) and Gamma Map Set (the set contains 3 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    6th place finish - Large Bronze Alliance Chest (the set contains a Golden Dice bonus, 50 units of fuel and 50 passengers) and Gamma Map Set (the set contains 3 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    7th place finish - Large Bronze Alliance Chest (the set contains a Golden Dice bonus, 50 units of fuel and 50 passengers) and Gamma Map Set (the set contains 3 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    8th place finish - Large Bronze Alliance Chest (the set contains a Golden Dice bonus, 50 units of fuel and 50 passengers) and Gamma Map Set (the set contains 3 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    9th place finish - Large Bronze Alliance Chest (the set contains a Golden Dice bonus, 50 units of fuel and 50 passengers) and Gamma Map Set (the set contains 3 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)
    10th place finish - Large Bronze Alliance Chest (the set contains a Golden Dice bonus, 50 units of fuel and 50 passengers) and Gamma Map Set (the set contains 3 random maps to Airline Alliance destinations)

    Please Note - it will not be possible, or even practical, to list all of the reward chest's and map sets here, for the top 100 alliance groups. For further information, you will need to access the alliance ratings league table.

    Ratings League Table Placements - if you study the ratings league table carefully, you will realise there is very little difference from 2nd to 4th place (Silver Alliance Chest and Beta Map Set), from 5th to 10th place (Large Bronze Alliance Chest and Gamma Map Set), from 11th to 50th place (Medium Bronze Alliance Chest and Gamma Map Set) and from 51st to 100th place (Small Bronze Alliance Chest and Omega Map Set) in terms of the rewards earned.​

    How To Join A Members Alliance Group
    The alternative option will be to join an existing members alliance group. There are a number of advantages to this option. First of all, you will not need to purchase the Airline Alliance HQ building, which will save you time and money. You will also not be starting from the beginning, but joining what may well be an established alliance group. The alliance group may well finish in the top 50 on a weekly basis. It is also possible you could join an alliance group that may well finish in the bottom 50 on a weekly basis. There are no guarantees, sometimes it is just a question of luck which alliance group has an opening.

    The type of members alliance group you will be able to join will depend on the number of passengers you are able to carry across a week and how many alliance tasks you are able to complete. Some alliance groups are hard-core, requiring new members to carry high passenger volumes, while other alliance groups are more relaxed in their game play and will look at the long term potential of a new alliance member.

    The game level you are on will be of importance, and will come into play, during the decision making process. If your game level is, let's say in the 20's, the chances of you joining an members alliance group, whose's members game level is in the 70's and finish in the top 50 each week, will be pretty slim. The gulf between your game and their games will be far too great. An alliance group with members closer to your game level will be far more appropriate, and will stand you a far better chance of joining an alliance group.

    It will be of great help if you are neighbours with some of the alliance group members you are looking to join. It will make the transition, into the group far easier, if you are known to them and/or to the owner of the alliance. You will be more likely to be taken on-board, if you already have a shared gaming relationship with them through the sending and receiving of gift items, posts, private messages and space program flights.

    Weekly Alliance Group Mission (Flights)
    To access the menu you will need to click on the onscreen icon, located on the right hand side of your game screen (the round icon is blue and gold in colour). Once selected, you will find two tabs on display, the first is laballed 'My Tasks' and the second is labelled 'Alliance Progress'.

    With the first 'My Tasks' tab, you will find three flight destinations, the number of flights required to complete each of the destinations and the planes required to undertake the flights. Each flight destination will have its own clickable picture stamp, which will display information for each of the flight destinations in question. You will also have the option to change one of the flight destinations for free, only once in a week, after which it will cost you 20 green notes (please note, by changing the flight destination, your progress will be lost).

    With the second 'Alliance Progress' tab, the menu will be displayed in two halves. The top half will display all the members in the alliance, the three flight destinations for each member, and a picture stamps for each of the destinations. The bottom half will display the progress bar, showing the number of flight tasks that have been collectively completed, and the amount of rewards earned for the alliance:

    10% flights completed - reward of flight simulator bonus (this increases the experience you receive for completing flights by 10%), plus 2 alliance reputation points
    30% flights completed - reward of golden hat bonus (this increases the experience you receive for completing any action by 30%), plus 4 alliance reputation points
    50% flights completed - reward of first class bonus (this increases the income from flights by 50%), plus 8 alliance reputation points
    70% flights completed - reward of maintenance check bonus (this reduces the chance of a plane and helicopter breakdown by 50% for all flights), plus 12 alliance reputation points
    100% flights completed - reward of golden megaphone bonus (this increases the duration of all active bonuses by 10% for a week), plus 20 alliance reputation points

    Please Note - the following figures will not register on the progress bar - 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, 90% - therefore no bonus and alliance reputation points will be awarded, for completing these five percentage targets.​

    The number of flights you will need to undertake, to complete a destination, will be dependent on the destination and on your fleet of planes. The figures will vary, from as little as 28 flights to complete a destination, through to 364 flights to complete a destination.

    Once the week is completed, the weekly alliance missions will reset for a new week of alliance flights. The three destinations will change, but the planes will remain the same, until you upgrade your planes, during normal game play.

    Additional Reading Material
    Once you have finished reading through this user guide, I would suggest you read through the following user guide, www.airportcitygame.com/threads/alliance-map-destinations-and-plane-types-required.18632/. This will give you information, as to the different types of purple map destinations available, the different types of planes required to undertake the flights and the different resources needed to fly to the destinations.

  2. Hi @Captain WH Rollins !
    Very nice and informative post, as always.
    Just a (very) minor correction in the above extract: in fact, you don't need to purchase the Alliance HQ to join an alliance, just to create one.
    I don't have an Alliance HQ, but still belong to one...
    Looking forward to reading more posts from you!
     
  3. very informative

    With this user guide, a general editing of a number of paragraphs were needed and the insertion of a few new sentences, to provide more detail to the procedures of Creating An Alliance Group or Joining An Alliance Group.

    Since first creating this user guide, some nine months ago, I have only once re-visited this thread. With this in mind, I have re-written a number of paragraphs, making it more fluid of read, and have also expanded the first section.

    I have re-written quite a number of existing paragraphs within this user guide. I have also written and inserted two brand new sections, Ratings League Table (Top 100 Alliance Groups) and Weekly Alliance Group Mission (Flights). I'm pleased with the way this user guide looks.
