[-] Increase slot multiplier in HatF
« on: January 20, 2020, 01:10:49 PM »
Might it be possible please to take a look at the slot multiplier in HatF?

ATL and LHR are both nearly 96% daytime usage! ATL will never get any new slots despite having two further infra levels to expand to, LHR will get just 1 new slot at infra 9 (and 15 at infra 10). The game is only just over 50% of the way through, so dealing with inevitable demand increases between 1997 and 2035 will be extremely difficult and make for a rather lacking-in-fun gameworld going forwards.

For reference, current slot multipliers:

HatF - x1.5
AG - x2
TMT - x2.2
DotM - x1.75
TAoF - x2
EUChal - x2

Both the other epic GWs have x2, the only other other GW below 2 is DotM which is medium length, and max current daytime usage is a bit under 70%, but is fully integrated with the new system, ie new slots will be added as infra increases.

I agree, some airports are quite hopeless.

Another option, instead of making Infrastructure x out of 10, limited by year of the game world, make it unlimited, just a function of demand for airport services.  If the airport is hopelessly out of slots, just increase infrastructure without upper limit.

(But it would be much simpler to increase the multiplier, to be in line with other game worlds where slots are not a problem).

If this happened, it would make jumbos like the A380 and others largely useless, correct?  Additionally, the city-based demand system can have demand "taken" from LHR by developing further--there are slots at other London airports to take the demand, right?  This seems like more of the system working versus not...

Well, I never saw it so low. It's not only LHR. And what you say could be true, but if players decide to go big and Sami decides to release slots, that's gonna cause some issues.

The CBD you mention works only for cargo. Pax are still static, and anyway not all cities got plenty of airports.

Not to mention the large growth in demand from 2000 onwards...

The way things work, when you have a shortage of slots, people hoard slots more.

BTW, other airports are affected.  EWR, for example, that rarely suffers from lack of slots, is very low on slots in certain hours.

If only people could stop using classic scheduling... That would avoid 0500-0655 to be sold out even in tier 2 airports... ;D :laugh:

Oh, and also DHC-8 and F.50 on 4000-demand routes >:( FCO to LIN is worse than banking time in ATL...
