I've been working on an airport

All the live-long day.

I've been working on an airport

Just to pass the time away.

Well, I haven't worked on it that much. I didn't have a chance to touch SimCity at all this weekend because I was away from my computer, but I have some screenshots of the my first attempt at building an Airport. I'm trying to design it in the style of the Hong Kong International Airport, however I doubt it will be as complex.


I'm building the new airport to replace the pre-built International Airport I downloaded a while ago. It was nice when I needed it but it is way too small now, and there are two brown boxes that pop in and out randomly. Also, when I first downloaded a lot of Airport stuff, I was intimidated by the number of pieces I would have to put together to form a whole but I've got more confidence now so I'm giving it a short

Old Airport (Regional Airport)


New Airport

I'm far from finished, I still have a lot to figure out to get the right look. I also want to try to build my first sunken highway to run right in front of the airport, but that will be another update. Does anyone know if there are diagonal jetways?




Thanks for visiting! More Updates Soon

Cool terminal. One quirk: a real terminal wouldn't have that RJ gate at that inner point - it would be a food court or atrium area or something. Awesome work, though. It looks like the USS Enterprise. :)

Awesome! Keep in mind, though, that i started building my airport last june, and it still isn't finished today.

There are no diagonal jetways, but there are non-orthogonal diagonal ACE-VLT pieces that have extrusions to allow jetways to be installed. Keep in mind though that the orthogonal pieces are not angled 45' but actually the same as the FARR pieces.

Great airport, but it's not as realistic as it could be. For example, because of the parallel terminals if one plane malfunctions while taxiing out, it will block all the planes behind it on the center aisle.

I'm creating an airport right now, and your design has inspired my international terminal & concourses. I look forward to seeing the completed airport :)

One other thing. I think it would be good if you built some sort of access road the airport instead of on a straight Avenue. You know, with looping ramps and parking structures much like a real airport.
