This is an update to my previous remote stand challenge (Challenge: remote stand only airport) but with new rules and stuff for A34. Because you don’t when you start out in limited money mode get remote stands, I give you 3 options to start out with:
You start out by building a GA airport and then research remote stands as soon as possible without having non remote commercial stands before remote.
100% non remote start
Basicly you start out by building a normal airport and keep it that way untill you get remote stands and then convert to that.
50% remote start
I have seen talk on the previous topic ( Challenge: remote stand only airport) about having the boarding desk far from the gate, but having a walkway to the stand instead of having a bus. I do not find that actually remote, but while you dont have actual remote stands yet so i will allow it at the start.
For 2 and 3 this only applies for small stands and before you unlock remote stands, you must as soon as you can get remote stands in R&D.
Requirements: 10 small stands, 10, medium stands, 3 large stands (minimums, so you can have more but not less). Extra points if you get airport of the year.
Well, what are you waiting for? Get building!
Edit: you start with $2,000,000
Edit 2: and yes you must have all turnaround services (deicing not included if you don’t want it)
Edit 3: I give you till the end of April to build your airport. Then I will create a poll (idk how actually so plz tell me) containing all airports submitted to this topic for you to vote on the best airport.
You may add the optional “challenge” of having Jet A1 fuel service, and Ramp Agent turnaround.
Isn’t that just a given for every airport?
How do you compute the points?
Maybe 1 per small, 2 per medium and 3 per large stand and -(12*years+days) time passed until goal was reached +cash/1Mio at that day?
The balancing was just made up and need to be re-thinked…
But how many “extra points” (compared to that) you get for the award?
What does the winner win?
lol i said extra points as a bit of a joke, the winner does not win anything exept that everyone else says they are the best builder
Yeah, I got it after I read the other thread.
If the winner wins nothing, the loser looses nothing.
How’s everyone’s airports coming along?
here is my airport so far, 12 small stands + 6 GA:
executive area is not much, will work on it more later.
transit systems .
the main terminal.
The open air terminal looks interesting, odd how you send the incoming baggage to through security too.
I would personally recommend a corridor for the terminal, as it allows for further expantion.
For medium and large planes I plan to wait for A35 and have them as separate terminals from one another
How’s everyone’s airports coming along?
nice bus terminal you got there!
haha, that’s a cool challenge, imagine running an airport filled with big remote stands!
Think of all the buses and parking lots you’d have. At least the boarding can be done across multiple floors.
With the vehicle path finding that would not really work. There will be huge pileups even if there were many different paths they could take. Not that that is a problem for a normal airport.
Since you are an expert, how many busses do you reserve per remote stand?
And is it still needed to build a footpath to guide “lost” ramp agents back?
I usually have 1 to 1 needs, so I always have exactly what I need to run the airport at full capacity all at the same time, so I have 1 bus per medium stand, 2 for the large and 1 per small, but I use 1 drop off point for 2-4 small stands, and 1 bus stop per medium stand, and2 per large stand, also, I don’t think a path for lost ramp agents is needed, that bug has been patched I think by now
I am running on 100% PAX, seems you then cant do medium with 1 bus.
I also use 100% pax, but it’s been some time since I have used a medium remote stand
Do multiple arrivals bus stands work? Does it not just replace to which ever you most recently assigned? Curious to know as I usually do same with the 2 bays for large stands as mentioned.
