Quote from: MuzhikRB on September 02, 2018, 04:09:44 PMfor pax - yes, companies do not invest by thmeselves.but usually it their lobby who does - like lufthansa peer in FRA or HON terminal there.But if i am not mistaken companies invest in maintenance and cargo handling facilities at the airports.that what we can play around, meaning not always FRA should be cargo hub but any other nearby airport where player will biuld cargo facilities to handle heavy cargo
Quote from: gazzz0x2z on September 03, 2018, 07:53:21 AMGoing even further(and probably too far given the scope of the game, but I'm still throwing the idea), airports could have a "business" factor, which would be zero in BVA, low in ORY, and strong in CDG. Maximum would be for LCY only.

Quote from: wilian.souza2 on September 03, 2018, 01:36:07 PM(.../...)- Route image should be calculated with respect to city connections, not airport connections. It won't make sense in CBD to connect some city to London via Heathrow, have a hard time building up route image and then have the same hard time building route CI if you opt to make a second flight to London via Gatwick.
Quote from: wilian.souza2 on September 03, 2018, 01:36:07 PM- This way, all the cities would have some international (short or longhaul) demand to anywhere in the world. This demand would be grabbed by larger airports nearby and this would help emulate the effects of connecting flights.
Quote from: wilian.souza2 on September 03, 2018, 01:36:07 PM- Airport runways shouldn't be changed; the fun of this game is to simulate real world's airline's operations in airports from the real world. The ability to change runway length would descharacterize this aspect and make the game less interesting because of this disconnection with the real world. Besides, finding out which of the hundreds of the airports in AWS could have their runways extended would be an overkill. It's not worth it.
Quote from: Mort on September 02, 2018, 05:55:07 PMAble to handle the A380; quite an important part of a lot of airport's history is building facilities that can handle an A380.Whether this is best modeled as a specific airport attribute is a further question - should it instead be an 'unlock' at a certain higher infrastructure level? Kind of how it works with allowing large and very large (at levels 3 and 4 if memory serves?)Would this be a good extension/replacement of the current aircraft size categories - runway length is obviously not the only limiting factor?
