But we do not want pods where you cant see the sunrise and only sleep there in the night.

A example is Alterlaa in Viena not commie but great architecture. so ill post pictures.

Elevator shafts are isolated by elevator doors. Also they have escape stairs that look like like isolated by doors.

It would mostly fine (though i know at least one case when during fire in highrise man escaping fire fell unconscious exactly in the door frame of the stairwell, blocked door closure and smoke sucked into stairwell cut off escape for many people. Dead.)

Those are three to five stories. In an urban context, they're mansions.
They've likely been subdivided into more, smaller units for rental by now, but that's an adaptive reuse to respond to demand and would happen to any large single unit in the same situation.

They have DC-6's and C-46's in their fleets as well as some more modern planes I'll be wrenching on. They use older planes because they handle the brutal Alaskan weather better I hear. What am I in for as an aviation mechanic?

Make sure you know where to find everything he could potentially ask you. You don't need to know everything by heart but you gotta know where to find it. Don't be afraid to take your time to explain something. As for the flying portion you just need to remember to explain everything you are doing like you are teaching a braindead student. The actual maneuvers should be pretty easy since you've done them all plenty of times before. Now just from the other side.

When compared to trucks trains are more cost and space efficient for national shipping, yet there are hundreds of thousands of semis on the road each day doing cross country shipping even though it's more expensive. Is there really any reason for it beyond Amazon and other logistics companies just not wanting to interact with cargo rail companies despite it being cheaper then hiring truck operators? It just doesn't make sense from an economic standpoint in industries where razor thin savings tend to be treated as a big deal, and that's before we get into the environmental side of this where these type of companies love to do things just for the sake of looking greener.

Thread about /n/-related games.

I figure that Cities in Motion 2 is the best management simulation for urban public transit. You're only tasked with handling public transit, not any other city element. You can use buses, trolleybuses, trams, metros and boats. You get a plethora of different street types that include bus lanes, medians that can be used for tram ROW, one way streets, expressways. You define transit lines including timetable (albeit time passes fast so you end up running trams every hour, essentially you just define frequency), and every passenger has a start and end point and will interchange between modes of transport, so you can have connections and feeder services. Traffic can obstruct your transit services if they're not segregated, so hou must take this into account.

It's not without it's flaws, but I'd say it's the most complete transit management game there is with the most realistic traffic simulation.

>- i tried transport fever and its... nice. line management sucks though and its missing the mod support i have grown to love in cities skylines (yes "scripts", not assets)

TF really has morphed into the 'virtual model railroad' type of game. Which is a shame, because the game actually has a ton of mod support internally. Especially the second game.

If you want something more in-depth game wise - I am using a mod called Extended Gameplay Two in the second game. Once you set it up correctly, it starts to be pretty goddamn challenging. At least as railroads are concerned.

You can manually assign CO's to projects outside of their range. That range is just for auto assigning. You can also set CO's to a tool in the side menu that allows you to assign multiple CO's simultaneously with drag boxes. As for building speed, it's gonna suck early on since you won't have that many workers or vehicles. Honestly I think they need to make road and rail construction faster since that takes ages with how slow the pavers, rollers, and track layers are. For roads just make sure you have actual busses working for the CO to get as many workers as possible on site. For rail, only use the EDK-300; every other track layer is a waste of time and resources.

How does one determine when crossing a canal should be done with a bridge going over or a tunnel going under? I ask because of pic related, which likely cost over a billion more then it otherwise would have because the government wanted a fancy bridge that went over the St Lawrence seaway rather then making a mile long tunnel going under the seaway followed by a 2 mile low to the water bridge like the Victoria bridge.

>d. Class III outboard open sampans which are made of non-metal, less than 10m in length overall and are fitted with a petrol outboard engine of power not exceeding 12kW;

Does that mean I can just buy this and sail around the harbor? Is there any maritime traffic rule to follow? What to do when a container ship or a cruise ship come close?

Anyone here skate around? I was curious about getting a board and riding between the places I walk/cruising on the weekends, there aren't any threads on skateboarding I can see ?

what you want is a cruiser board. a real skateboard the wheels are going to be too hard and tiny for the sole purpose of traveling. cruisier boards a slightly bigger, dont have to be, and have slightly bigger and softer wheels to make traveling easier hence the name cruiser board. longboards are for complete faggots. if you push mongo you are a clown.
