Airports Dev Diary #5: Free Update & Patch Notes

Hello to all my fellow city-builders! True to tradition every new expansion comes with a free patch full of goodies for everyone, and this one is no exception. Following the theme of creative freedom and customization, we have a few new features for you, as well as an update to how planes behave. So let’s dive in!

Improvements to PlaneAI​

Airports presented a great opportunity to improve how planes behave. We have added more variation in how planes select a path, which leads to the use of multiple plane stands, not just for the new Airport Areas, but also the existing airports. And if you’ve ever encountered the bug causing airplanes to endlessly circle above your airport, you will be happy to know that it is fixed.

But it isn’t just the planes that have had their behavior updated, as the improvements also affect other public transport options bringing in passengers from outside connections. Beyond passenger and cargo planes, passenger ships and trains coming in and out of the city are less frequent, but have a higher passenger count when arriving, reducing unnecessary traffic.

Replace trees on roads​

You can now replace trees on roads and pedestrian paths with any tree available in the game! To do so simply go into the Landscaping menu and find the tree you want to use, select it and click on a tree-lined network already placed in your city to apply the new tree. This is done per segment, so you can customize the networks you want with the many different trees. And the best part is this is free since the cost of trees is already included in the cost of the network!

And speaking of trees, the free patch includes 14 new trees by MrMaison everyone gets to enjoy and use! From palm trees to pines to grasses and bushes, there’s something for every map!

Buy or sell soil​

While we’re in the Landscaping category let’s look at some changes to how soil works! You still use and store soil as you landscape the terrain, but we have added an option to buy or sell soil making landscaping, and also creating Airport Areas, easier. No more running out of soil and having to dig a hole, or creating a mountain just to dispose of excess soil! Just click the new button in the Landscaping Info View active when landscaping or creating Airport Areas.

Service Vehicle Selection​

Pairing nicely with the new vehicles by bsquiklehausen is the option to select which city service vehicles can spawn for Healthcare, Deathcare, Fire Department, Police Department, and Garbage. This is set per service building and the menu for this can be found by opening the respective service building’s Info Panel. The button to change vehicles is found in the bottom right, but it’s only visible if there is more than one vehicle to choose from.

This doesn’t just work with the Content Creator Pack, but any custom vehicles you may be using.

As we prepare for the release tomorrow please ensure your seat is in an upright position and direct your attention to the patch notes below. Thank you for choosing Cities: Skylines Airports.

now can do that same thing you did for soil with other resources like garbage / water / power ? That idea has a massive potential ! I've always wanted to interact with the outside world more directly , not every city should have a power plant . It's one of the things the 2013 sim city did that was clever that I miss from it in other games . The truly modular buildings is another and I hope the airports in this dlc inspire more of that future updates .

I'm glad more features of mods are now being integrated into the base game, like the tree selector from Network Skins or the functionality of the Service Vehicle Selector mod. If we can buy/sell soil now, I hope we can do the same to utilities as well, like electricity or water/sewage.

The WR:SR did it nicely and it is a fresh game. I hope CS2 will learn from that game.

Question:
I've seen in all the trailers that grasses/bushes are grouped up forming clusters. In consoles, by now, we are not able to do this, as each bush takes a big space and can't be fit together.
As Im seeing them in all trailers and patch notes is for "all players":

In consoles, are we going to be able to do this in this new update?

Question 2: Trees' textures in consoles are downgraded (even in PS5/XSX), the new trees/bushes on this pack are going to be downgraded too?

Thanks in advance.
