So I’ve checked the box to enable realistic international flights. In the hope to also connect some medium stands to the international zone. Next tot that I’ve enabled medium flights to large stands. But is it only me, or does it depend on the contracts, but I get no, none, whatsoever international flights for medium size planes. The checkbox of let medium sized stands use large stand is also kinda useless, seen that all large planes are automatically international flights.
I’ve my airport located near Tromsø, Norway, it is fairly North of the map, but not unreachable. But it is kinda solved. I’ve now added another Airliner (SkyFly) and I get 1 medium international flight now. So maybe more to come, try to get some extra airliners, but these flights sure don’t grow on trees.
If it is the location I choose, which depend my limitation, which would make sense I guess, this somehow needs to get explained better when choosing one. Like for example in CS, you can see on each map how much connections there are and what kind of resources, something simple could be done to explore the amount of regional, national or international flights there are in that area.
Is this true @Olof ? Does the location change the flight availability?
As jasper says it does indeed change availability. There are multiple things weighing into the flight generation but I agree that a well rated medium sized airport in northern Norway should get some international flights. What is the spawn rate like now?
Would there be any viability in an option to allow players to create their own destination tables for the game to draw from, rather than just assuming connection to the nearest large country. I set up an airport on St Helena and am finding the destination options less than realistic, especially as there should be no domestic flights at all.
So I’ve 5 airliners now, only 2 of them spawn large aircraft. 3 of the airliners (including both large plane spawners) each spawn 1 international medium flight at a time. So only if the first offered flight is completely finish, a new one gets spawned.
I don’t really care if its low or high at this point, meaning, I’ve chosen this location, so I accept the characteristics of it. But when choosing a map, you get these characteristics presented, only there are things like atmospheric pressure and humidity that don’t do anything for the gameplay. Information about flight demands would be useful in my opinion.
Here is the screenshot, but as I mentioned before, there could be some additional information about flight demands.
