Ever since the game got the update to “more realistic taxiing” (a while back), the point where we could no longer set specific pushback points, is where I took a break from playing the game (for other, personal reasons). I recently came back, and found that I cannot, for the life of me, get a good layout/flow for the taxiway on any airport I design. No matter my airport layout in relation to the runway with the ensuing taxiways, I will get massive pushback delays because the wait line to take off just grows quicker than it can shrink, which will block the pushbacks. Then, on top of that, I think there’s small bugs that have a random aircraft lose its place in the “queue” of when to pushback, causing me to get 14+ hour pushback delays. Am I just being too zealous with my build, using too many aircraft stands? Seems unfortunate to have to decide whether to have a dream airport design, or sacrifice 1/3 of that for 4+ parallel runways just to ease traffic flow, since we only have so much ground space to work with, coupled with certain building limitations.
I never had this problem before that specific feature change, removing the ability to set specific pushback points; so I find it extremely difficult to believe that this can all 100% be “blamed” on my airport designs. However, I recognize that it is a possibility! Any help, suggestions, general taxiway layouts/diagrams would be very appreciated! I am now just stuck in a design loop where I design, then I move on, because I know I will be sorely disappointed with the ground delays.
