[-] Introduction of "floorspace"

So, we all know the airplane config wizzard: you can select between different seating options. a std seat counts as that many hd seats, a premium seat is like 3 hd seats, etc. etc.

Problem: the problem is, that the available space is calculated by the maximum seating in HD seats. which is technically fine for all those aircraft that are used by ryanair and  smartlynx (where at 5'7'' you feel like asking for getting your legs chopped off). the problem comes particularly with longhaul-aircraft that are not certified for that many passengers, most of the time because raising the exit limit brings about new exits... which is extra cost and maintenance and weight.

Proposal: now limiting the total passenger number by the exit limit, or "maximum seating" seems fine. but when determining how many seats of particular kind can be put on the airplane should be calculated by a "floor area" value.

imho: this would bring about a lot more realism than analysing some aircraft checklists for absolutely precise climb rates (which is nice too, but maybe not as productive in the sense of making things appear real).

This is already planned and a/c data exists too already, and I believe an existing thread of it too. So this one's closed as duplicate.
