Airport Road Connections

Description
Enables multiple road connections on all three in-game airports and allows road vehicles to use the airport base roads for travel. (Beta version: Play at your own risk.)

Usage
Modded airports are shown with a blue dot in the game interface. This mod will duplicate the 3 base-game airports so you should see the old airports alongside the new ones. Place the modded airport as usual and attach roads wherever the airport base roads come to an end.

Airport road connections:
  • Small: 2 connections (one new on air-field connection) (also removed end year on this airport for testing)
  • Medium: 3 connections (two new)
  • Large: 3 connections (two new)
Where possible, the entry road has been shortened to allow some flexibility in placement of the airport. Note that this also creates a small limitation on attachable street sizes.

Caution: creating through-routes on airport base roads may result in traffic jams at your airport.

Known Limitations
  1. Not all road types can connect to the airport. Airport base roads are small. Some of the larger roads will not connect directly to the small ones after shortening the entry road into the airport (which this mod does). You can resolve this by building a longer entry road first with small road types and then changing to big roads.
  2. If you build additional structures within airport property lines it may become impossible to demolish your additional construction without also destroying the airport. This is mostly an issue for the small airport since it becomes possible with this mod to place roads and bus stops much closer to the apron/taxiway areas. I recommend creating a save point prior to building any overlapping construction, placing additional construction very carefully, or having boatloads of cash on hand to rebuild. Patience helps as well.
  3. As the old saying goes: “If you build an airport in the forest, sooner or later you wind up in trees.” And it’s true… sometimes existing trees manage to find their way onto the tarmac or apron after construction. No worries though! Just make a save point, keep a steady bulldozing finger, and don’t blow all your cash on building the airport because each tree removal costs a whopping $10.
  4. Adding terminals may require temporarily demolishing some connecting roads. This will *always* be the case if you connect to the terminal road directly (the road in front of the gate buildings) and then add terminals later. This is similar to adding tracks to a train station that already has two road connections though so I don’t consider this something that needs fixing. Think of it as part of the cost of re-developing your airport.

This mod does not
  • Allow you to place bus or tram stops on airport base roads. Screenshots illustrate the closest I’ve been able to get.
  • Allow upgrading airport base roads to include bus lanes, tram tracks, or catenary.
  • Allow connecting to the middle portions of airport base roads (where the road does not come to an end).

@rb58nl any help you can provide with testing would be appreciated!

Has the problem been solved? I would like to use to MOD but without problems

@pew_pew_pokes_q_q I have no idea. That's really really weird behaviour that I've never seen before. How many save games have you seen this with?

Also I just noticed something, after going back into the Mods that appear in the list of a save point I have, the Airport Connections Mod is completely gone. It doesnt even appear in the list of my saved game. But when I go to the menu, and try starting a new free game, the mod appears. What is happening during saved games that removes this mod? Even though it works and functions as intented at the starte of games?

I build an airport, at the beginning of my timeline, around 1950. I was able to use the mod, added roads to the airport of any size I wanted to connect to it. Later on, after deleting roads connecting to it, the road connection function stopped working, additionally when trying to build other airports as well, the mod stopped working. Even when changing an existing airport from passenger to frieght the mod stopped working, even trying to use small roads matching the airport roads did not work. Is there a fix for this?

@Woozie, @Gerbilskij,

TL;DR: Maybe can fix but probably not fast and possibly not feasible (not sure yet).

Thanks for your interest and letting me know of the issue with other mods. I posted a detailed response in the "Troubleshooting" discussion thread if you want to know the background here and why it's not just an easy fix. I'll be sure to update if I can contribute to a good solution either through updates to the mod or otherwise. Thanks for the comments.

@nate.wilson I found there is conflct with this mod and "Small street with sidewalks"
(http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=797740166) .
Can You make this mods compatiple? Maybe it is possible to move a connection in airport files 0.3m up? :D Maybe U can add 2 points - one for not modded small street, one moved up for modded one?
