After going on holiday for a few weeks i realized a (quite) vital part of simulating an airport was missing… Families.
Groups could also have a role in a later build of the game. I believe a smaller version of the current people in the game could denote children and if those children stay next to 1 or 2 adults throughout their visit to the airport it could class as a family.
In Britain families usually have the same last names but i’m not sure how international that is as i believe Icelandic people take their fathers name add son on the end and use it as their last. (Feel free to correct me Icelandic people.) But i’m sure that could be included. Children would also need realistic birth dates to be realistic.
The Families and groups would stick together throughout their airport experience; queue together, sit together, buy stuff together, etc, etc. A lack of seats next to each other could impact their mood as not all of them would be able to sit down and if one of the children in the group had to be searched a parent would have to be near them.
Anyway it’s just an idea that i don’t believe has been mentioned before.
