Hello all and wellcome back to my journal!, let me start by thanking all the coments that you have made!
On a side note, i have changed the rendering mode of my SC4 deluxe to hardware mode in order to take some of the airport's pics with better shadows from the planes, but i have a integrated video card that dosn't work well with SC4 so i guet tons of small video card crashes that make the gaming experience imposible, so you will notice a difference in the pics of this update.
Now this will be the largest update till now! brace your selfs for lots of pics!
Ok lets start by taking a global look of the ariport! Hampsterdam international airport is a middle traffic airport, so is not as big as other airports out there
Lets start the aiport tour by taking a look at the entrace, Hampsterdam is a very green city in many aspects! so in order too reflect that the entrance to the airport is acomanied by a park
in order to make space for the park with out compromising the parking space needed for an airport this big, parking has been made underground, and underground pasages have been placed, for those using the parkins lots, now also there are parking for more "temporal" usage for those cars that only go for a moment to the airport, and an entrance for taxis
Also in this area we can find the Air traffic control tower, with its own parking space for workers.
There is also a cargo entrance, we start the tour of the different terminals here
This part of the airport is shared by the international gates and the cargo storage areas These gates are part of terminal B.
Here we se the were terminal B and Terminal A (with the bigues gates) merge
Terminal A houses the gates for most of the A380's so those gates manage a lot of traffic
Now we head to terminal C, this part of the airport manages local (nation) traffic, and so it mostlly is used by smaller planes.
Terminal C also manages smaller crafst that are accesed by walkways rather than gates, mostlly used by private corporations and rich sims that can rent or buy them.
Hampsterdam's international airport also has parking for emergency vehicles (and plains) and hangars for smaller planes.
There are a good amount of taxiways that allow for management of several plains arriving and leaving
Now we take a look at the runways, Hampsterdam's international Ariport, has 4 runways, 2 for local and 2 for international flights,
(2 mosaics coming up!)
we firts have a look at the 2 international runways , these are 2 9/27 presition runways with lenghts adecuate for high traffic
Now we take a look in to the 2 national runways, these are 2 36/18 non presition runways for smaller plains but do manage some traffic
(btw CA stands for civil aviation! and that is the logo totally fictional)
Tho Hampsterdam's Airport is small compared to other cityes airports, its an important one never the less, so it atracts may comercial activities to thes district of the city, one of the most common is tourism, so you can easylly find a hotel near!
Also some office buildings can be found, mostlly near some hotel, and dedicated to international buisness
All these buisness and also the residents that live in these parts are a good source of customers for all kinds of shopping centers, malls and smaller shops.
Such an active comerce demands for many type of products, some high- tech factoryes have made this distict theyre home, making products for export and also to sell to the comerce of the city (being the shops near one of their most important clients)
But not only comerce and industry are alowed to develop here, also some residential areas have apeared.been constructed, tho big buildings have a height limmit of 20 flors in order to avoid any kind of accidents.
Proposals for development!
Proposal A.2 150.
Due to the high number of clients present, moving in and out of the airport, some commerce has been developed in the entrance near the airport park, some complaints from the local residents and from tourist that feel there is too much comerce, and from the shop owners that see too much competition, a proposal to buy these lands and put them to a different use is being debated, Please make your opinion heard!
A.) Buy those lands and demolish all the buildings to make room for aditional parks! let the green expand!
B.) Leave some comerce, not all.
C.) Bohooo bunch of cry babys! a little competition never hurt any one!
Thx all for visiting! hope you like my airport!
Cya all in the next update.
