    Why no Airports or Malls?

    Is an Airport and Mall prefab planned for the game?

    They're big.

    Big prefabs won't load correctly in Rwg, and are REALLY hard on computers.

    You have to remember, this is a game that is 100% 3D Voxels. It's not a flat 2D game like GTA-V or Battelfield. The bigger something is, the more CPU calculations are required to project it.

    I just came across a MASSIVE and I mean MASSIVE ShamWay Foods Manufacturing plant for the first time in my last RWG. This is easily as big footprint wise, if not bigger, than a small rural airport. The town I grew up in had a small airport that serviced single engine planes. I can tell you the entire thing was smaller than the Shamway foods building minus the runway.

    We have skyscrapers that have probably close to a hundred rooms in them and thousands of blocks. A small airport wouldn't even be as big block count wise. The ground level foot print seems to be the main problem.

    If someone wanted to get creative, they could certainly create this and export the POI, the MAIN issue I see with these being hard to implement is finding enough flat land in RWG to place the runway. The rest of the building is not that hard to create given the enormity of the Shamway foods plant and skyscrapers already in game.

    Any large airport simply wouldn't make sense unless you are in a city that would support such a structure with its economy.

    True. There are different sized airports. Not all of them are the size of O'Hare.

    And you could do a small mall. Or maybe like a shopping center type strip. Those aren't big either.

    Something like this is a "Mall" just not 3 stories, with a water park, theater, and hotel rooms sized mall.

    I would definitely like to see a clothing store with associated loot in some towns. That would be nice vs. raiding laundry baskets.

    Yeh both small airports and strip malls have been done. I thought we were talking about full malls and big airports.

    Airport:

    ...and there are probably a dozen strip malls.
