Cities: Skylines Airports DLC Steam

The Airports expansion for Cities: Skylines is now available on all platforms. A free update is also included that brings new features for everyone to enjoy.

For those interested in getting the game’s latest expansion, it is sold for $12.99. Key features include modular airport buildings, airport progression systems, public transport to and from the airport, and connecting cargo terminals to the larger airport complex.

Improvements to the airplanes’ AI have been implemented as well. The developers have added more variation on how the airplanes choose a path. Moreover, the bug that has caused airplanes to circle endlessly above your airport has been resolved.

Trains and passenger ships also bring in more passengers than before. Furthermore, they’ll be coming in and out of the city less frequently. These changes can help reduce unnecessary traffic.

New Features

There is a free update, and one notable feature it brings is the ability to replace trees on roads and pedestrian paths.

To do this, you simply have to go to the Landscaping menu, search for the tree that you want to use, and select it. Then, click on a tree-lined network that’s already established in your city to apply the new tree.

Aside from that, you now have the option to buy or sell soil. This new feature makes landscaping and developing airport areas so much easier than before. It is worth noting that you can still store soil as you would before this patch.
