Hangars: A long time dream of many players. I see only 2 concerns. First, as mentioned by Thorne and others above, if they are a pay-for service, there is a concern about losing planes when you don't pay the rent. This one is easy to fix. If you don't pay for a given month, the hangar page shows a big old lock on the door, maybe with a sketcky looking repo-rat outside. The server keeps the data as long as your main (free) account exists and you can get back into you hangar at any time just by paying. Solved.

'solved' but not user friendly at all.

Imagine someone gets a crazy idea and says "Hey i just got my top tier plane! i think i will try out my old CR-4p for a while just to see how far i have come!" they stow away thier high tier plane and go out on in the CR4P for a while, only to come back the next day and see their newest plane locked away

said person also may not have enough money at the moment to open it back up and will be stuck with the tier 0 plane for weeks.

Solved: Just tell folks what's going on via some text in the UI.

Says here that your rent is paid up until Upheavalardalis the 12th. Thanks!
To continue using this fancy-schmancy hangar after then, your next rent payment [is due by Delphanus the 26th]/[will be drafted on Delphanus the 26th]/[will be paid by a generous benefactor].

Better solution: "Ya can get yer plane outta here, but I'm not taking that there plane of yers 'til ya get yer rent paid up." (Would you like to junk your old plane and accept the stored plane instead?)

Or both.

When in good standing, Calvin's.

When payment is overdue* - Lynx's.

*As in, the Hangar Credit you pay real money for has run out.
