As tested the separated secure zones in this thread, I’ve extended the tests towards multiple terminals to see if that works.
Note, as in the separated secure zone thread, this airport ‘design’ is purely for testing purposes.
Ok, let’s not keep you waiting, to what I have seen so far IT WORKS!! At least for the separating of buildings part and all based on separated secure zones. There is still some work to do as terminals as a setting/building/designation/etc are not part of the game yet. You can also have check-in desks in separated buildings by assigning the baggage bay to a stand and a check-in to the baggage bay, then PAX will check in at the right ‘terminal’ (thanks @jasperwillem for this addition). But bus/car stops and subway’s cannot be assigned to a terminal building yet and buildings cannot be assigned yet as a terminal. But there is a start and with the separated secure zones you can make a creative start with multiple terminals, looking forward to new designs!
I have created a setup with four ‘terminals’ and a centralised check-in building
The top left terminal has 3 security zones and 4 stands, the others all have 1 but that could easily be multiple as well. The principal is all the same, if you keep the secure zones separated and the security stations connected to the correct stands, it all works like a charm!
As you can see I have almost all stands occupied
And the PAX are moving to the correct building, security desk and stand
I’ve not have any delay so far, will let it run for some time to see if it will keep up. But so far I’m a happy bunny, will update here if I encounter any issues in the upcoming tests. Will probably also add some remote stands as well, to see if that works all together. Will keep you posted.
