In the warning message is said that those new airports are available from r5346, but we are now with 0.4.8 by r5863. I think there is something wrong.

0.4.8 was a featureless release, with no new features. It was just to fix bugs. That's why. There's nothing wrong. Born Acorn 15:24, 9 October 2006 (CEST)

0.4.8 is in a different SVN branch - 0.4 branch where bugs are fixed, but no features are added. The latest version of this branch is r5862, but these new airports are only available in the trunk r5346 onwards. Bruce98 15:53, 9 October 2006 (CEST)


Helistation: I think it needs a design change. Hangar and building should be side by side, like the helistation. Then the taxi to the hangar would only take one tile, and the size would only be 2x3 tiles. As it is, why would players build a helistation when they can build a helidepot and 2 heliports instead? -- PMB

Because you can not build more than 2 airports in the city and also can not adjoin several airports.

It's better to talk about this kinda stuff on The Forums. Born Acorn 10:59, 29 October 2006 (CET)

Introduction dates

Is there a way to change the dates of introduction for these airports? I'd like to have the commuter airport available sooner (1964 so I can use it with my DC-9s), and in a normal 1950 start I've already got a tremendous airport network by 1983. 67.149.28.67 12:57, 3 July 2007 (CEST)

No, unless you can find or make a newgrf that changes it. Zojj 17:39, 3 July 2007 (CEST)

Fast Planes And Crashing

Does operating a fast plane (Concorde, Dinger 1000, FFP Hyperdart) from a small airport increase its risk of crashing over the normal 5%? 67.149.28.67 14:30, 20 July 2007 (CEST)

Takeoff / Landing direction

Aircraft taking off (Yate Haugan) and landing (Yate Aerospace YAe46) in opposite direction.

On the International Airport (and possibly other multi-runway airports (untested)), planes take off from the northern runway and land on the southern runway. Pretty neat, but there's a quirk: they take off in southwesterly direction but land in northeasterly direction. In the real world, this would never happen - both because of safety reasons and the fact that planes will always want to take off or land into the wind.

Would there be a way of changing this?

Subtitles of the images?

Hi all, there are subtitles for every image, but they are very small. By suggestion is a subtitle like on the Wikipedia? I change it in the template. See --XZise 16:47, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Airport queue counter

I am currently playing a game on a huge map and my most important airport is operating on its capacity limit with many aircrafts circling around it, waiting for a landing permission. I suggest a queue counter that is shown in the airport's information window.
