In this case it had been snowing and we are, as a test, running a terrain texture change to whiten the ground when it snows. It’s just for test and does makes the ground look kind of weird.

Yes, a taxiway can be as narrow or as wide as you want it. We will probably implement something later on to allow aircrafts (and indirectly airlines) to discover the width of you taxiways and generate some kind of approval score based on that.

Hi Olof,
If I was to build an airport as shown in the second photo of this post:

If I replaced the white square (over bridge) with a crosswalk, would the new system allow it?
It looked like one of the test airports had something similar.


#229

I’m not sure as to what exactly you mean, could you circle the area for me or highlight it?


#230

This area:

#231

You could build that as a terminal and build service road inside (like the tweeted airport) but then passengers will then just walk across.

There is also an issue with the cargo bays as staff cannot walk over taxiway. There needs to be walk-able connection leading to the room. Otherwise, really nice airport! :slight_smile:


#232

Thanks. Never got a chance to finish it.

So could I build a concourse as far away as I wanted (and connect with a service road) or can it be only a single road gap between the 2 buildings?


#233

No, passengers cannot walk on service road, only inside terminal and on sidewalk. So instead you should remove that piece of service road and make it terminal instead.


#234

I see.
Thanks for the info.

Just waiting for the game now so I can use it.

Not sure if you have enough check-in desks / security checkpoints :slight_smile:
Depends on how many aircraft you want to do simultaneously, but i remember reading somewhere that you need about 1 checkpoint per medium stand to be on time.
I also saw in the videos that contracts often ask for 2 check-in desks for a flight


#236

One of you said that you can make taxi ways any length you like. Is there as suggested taxi way length?


#237

Would say 3 width for GA and 5 width for medium jets.


#238

The challenges of designing such a large airport as your first airport for a game that has not yet released.
Imagine the number of contracts that I would have to sign to keep this airport full throughout the day.


#239

Well each contract can contain between 2 and 20 flights or so :slight_smile:


#240

Well each contract can contain between 2 and 20 flights or so :slight_smile:

How do YOU know that? :thinking:


#241

Is there collision detection or a way to prevent planes from. Using taxi way if there is insufficient space for the wings? On the largest test airport it looks like the aircraft wing will clip the terminal building.


#242

Well i dont. The 2 and 20 arent exact numbers, but i wanted to point out that 1 contract gives multiple flights.

What? You dont know the videos by heart? Pfff :stuck_out_tongue:


#243

Well i dont. The 2 and 20 arent exact numbers, but i wanted to point out that 1 contract gives multiple flights.

Well from gameplay videos we saw 2 and 6 flights per contract but never 20… So it might be known by only developers and… beta testers… who… have been… playing… the game…

Ohh my :open_mouth:

Lol now you’re reaching

Reaching for … the truth?
