Love what the future of this game holds. Looking at the catering truck in the picture in Dev Blog 132 I have one small complaint.

There’s a turnaround service being provided from the left side of the aircraft. All services should be provided from the right.

I agree.

We hope to deploy Alpha 31 on default as of this Sunday, and Alpha 32 concurrently on the experimental branch.

We have a few technical limitations in regards to servicing doors and where service is being provided which results in a few unrealistic combinations throughout the game. However, this is a tycoon game and not a simulator… so there’s that. Also, we’ve done quite a lot of research and it’s not always a 100 percent solid case for services being delivered on the right, as can be seen in this schematic below. There are also several cases where large aircraft, A380, A330, 747 and more where alternative service doors are used (on the left) not only due to the fact that multiple vehicles may occupy the primary doors but by chance.

Anyway, that’s just an explanation to why service on some aircraft is being provided from the left. :slight_smile:

Will all of the vehicles on those charts ever be added to the game?

I guess only the Toilet truck is missing @dewitjur?

edit: oh and water truck it seems

vacuum? Air conditioning?

Depends on time, budget and community will. After these new services are added I think we need to prioritize other stuff, as will be detailed in the next dev blog. I can however see us quite easily adding lavatory service in a not too distant future. But as I said, this game is a tycoon game and we have quite a few services now, but lacking other important features which need our attention now.

In my opinion, would be better to add a second stair to the left side for quicker passenger boarding, and have the service trucks on the right side only.

I tend to agree with this also. There were lots of relevant ideas last year during the vote for new items. Will there be a new vote in the near future following the implementation of the last selectionned items ? (Pretty sure it was mentioned somewhere but can’t remember ^^’).

Yes, we will host another round of voting, but this time we’ll enforce a few rules around the size of voted features… :stuck_out_tongue: … I think we’ll do a new round that’s dedicated solely to smaller implementations. Might be difficult for players to understand what counts a small one from a development resource perspective but we’ll simply have to pick and choose once the results are in.
