Strange AI behaviour, allocating employees to terminals

Hi All,
I have an airport that works perfectly, with GA, Small and Medium aircrafts.
GA and Smal are Teminal 1, Medium Terminal 2.
At this stage, the button “Automatically allocate employees to a terminal on arrival” is ON.

When building Terminal 3 for the Large aircrafts, and after defining this area as Terminal 3 (while the workers are finishing it), the AI suddently sends a large number of employees to it, totally screwing the operations in terminals 1 and 2 (which then totally lack the necessary personal, therefore putting a stop to perfectly well going operations.

Clicking on an employee does not allow it to be assigned to a specific terminal, neiter is this an option when hiring that employee (a feature that would be good, I think). So setting the “Automatically allocate employees to a terminal on arrival” button OFF does not help :0)

So, questions:

  • At what time do you folks define a new terminal ? When it is totally built, when it is beein constructed, other ?
  • Did you findemphasized text any mean to force AI allocating the employees where you need them ?

Thanks for your time :0)

Ideally you would define the terminal area ahead of bringing any flights to the stands intended to be part of that terminal, otherwise it doesn’t matter.

I am not sure exactly what you mean here, we don’t have any AI allocation but instead it simply tries to distribute the employees as evenly as possible amongst the different terminals.

Thanks Olof.
If you try to distribute evenly, then I see where the problem is.

For the future, it would be good to be able to individually allocate employees to a given terminal.
In my last airport, I have a total of 711 employees… For 24 GA, 24 Small, 20 Medium, and 16 Large aircrafts’ places… out of which at least 200 are useless, and should be fired.

Only that… I cannot do it “blindly” :0)

BTW, is there any place in this forum where you can place suggestions ? I did not find it yet :0) And there are quite a few things that “drive me crazy” in the game, but I guess you must receive tons of these.

Thanks for your time :0)

Press T to activate the terminal overlay. There you can click on the Staff and Vehicle Icon to set a specific number of staff/cars to the terminal.
That’s the way how you can manage this manually.

The autoamted equal split is when you hire new staff.

There is a feature voting section: Feature voting - Airport CEO Forum
