Ahhh… DEL, not SYD I originally suggested for the next airport.
I don’t see any big issue for this airport as I feel we all need a big one after the beautiful SXM.
However, I suspect the devs have to do plenty of things before we make DEL in the game.
A320 series rework and A321 model, that is a big thing. I am unsure if there are many A321 operators in India but there are plenty of them in nearby regions (such as China, Vietnam…)
Many new destinations in Southeast Asia, China, as well as some in Korea, Japan and Middle East. I suggest all of them to be Regional destinations…
Aircraft movement improvement. I am not sure how planes will land, taxi to the gate and depart… There are four runways so I am really curious and managing them would require more assistance from automated management (tower manager I guess?)
Performance… It is a pity that we cannot use all the four runways in IAD and I do wish to see everything in DEL to be included in the game. But performance is deemed an issue why we cannot have the full IAD. Considering DEL is larger than IAD, I wish to see how devs respond to the challenge.
The biggest airline in India which is Indigo operates A321s , The second largest which is Air India has started taking deliveries of A321s and Vistara also operates A321s.
Rest we all know that Delhi airport is often called by plane spotters as the A320 haven.
And about performance…I personally dont mind if the games size and processor requirments are increased by a notch.
I think that maybe for performance, there could be a toggle-able setting for the full airport, so lower end devices have a small version, and higher end devices have the whole thing. Thoughts?
Sounds unfair to lower end devices…and maybe also difficult to create this but sure if its possible and accepted by the lower end device users.
I did think that, but then, as I used to be a lower end device user myself, I did suggest it before for bigger airports, and some friends have done as well. It would have to come down to what people want.
Whenever they implement a wind factor for runways maybe they’ll add a runway choice option
But just because an airport has multiple runways doesn’t mean they use all of them at the same time
Earlier in this forum ideas like optional runway configuration are widely discussed.
However, this is considered somewhat complicated for devs to make it a thing. So we can only expect that to be a norm for a very long time, sadly.
If you think about how the game mechanics work. Turning around the airport for a different runway configuration requires the coding essentially to be not quite doubled, but significantly increased and the devs are not comfortable withi that and the potential impact on the game
