Crap, just seems like such a good idea. Any word on a fix?

@Dirkels. It seems the mod is not working anymore after the performance upgrade. I get an error message and CTD.


Error Message says:

Construction configuration error
Terminals are not properly connected!

@Zappierchimp: I will look into it as soon as I can find some spare time.

Could you consider making a small version of this? Like one with the styling of the older small airport?

I think the real need is always for extra landing runways. The game is not very efficient in separating aircrafts in the landing pattern, so for a mega hub probably 3 landing runways would make more sense.

You would then have very scaleable options: single runway airport, normal two runways, modded 2-runways, 3-runways, mega hub.

@Dicapitano: Thanks for you feedback, currrently working on your SUPER-HUB airport, although currently only with 4 runways ( 2 on each side). Do you feel that an extra landing runway is realy needed? Also I was thinking about 4 bus/tram stops (2 at each terminal), 10 gates ( 5 per terminal) and 8 tracks in an undrground train station.

Tried 6 gates per terminal but that did not seem to work well together with the bus stops (terminals not properly connected error) it still functions but I geuss the distance between bus stops and far gates gets to big.

Suggestion for next mod: a two/three dirt runway airport than is available from 1935 to 1955. And a 2-3 paged runway airport that goes 1955 to 1985.

The one runway airports are far too limiting to develop any meaningful air network until the multi-runway ones become available in 1980. Would be cool to be able to build a hub airport with DC-3s and DC-6s flying in and out of it...

Also, a SUPER-HUB airport with many runways and integrated train, tram, bus stations from 2010 onwards...

With the (hopefully soon-coming) performance upgrade, you can take a huge map and build a really meaningful and profitable plane network conneting all the cities through a few major hubs.

Played again for a while...

... I think the mod now is at an ideal stage. With the extra taxing nodes the takeoff runway has way more capacity than the two landing runways combined. Even if you stop an aircraft just before the takeoff run, and let the airport be filled up, it will still quickly let all planes take off and go back to normal operations.

By far the highest capacity airport now. Two of these, one opposite the other, make a super hub airport with huge route coverage.
