I know that one of the main ideas of the game is to have all your ops. in time and green, but what about this kind of gameplay:
1.- In sandbox mode and without construction simulation active build an airport. The size you like, the topology and design you like.
2.- Check how much you’ve spent in the construction.
3.- Put the airport in operation with personell and airlines and try to get back to $0 in debt as fast as possible.
This is kinda a reverse-mode style of playing and mostly focus on the very design and layout of the airport.
I’m actually an architect and i like this kind of things hahaha.
Let’s see how long it takes to get to $0 with a fully built airport.
For example, in this airport i’ve been stuck in 25 something million red.
