Please attach a picture of the gate(s) you are talking about which will not allow the heavy reverse. Thanks

EGLL Airport Operations / Briefing
1.6 Taxi Procedures
1.6.1 Ground Ground Movement Restrictions
1.6.1.1 Restrictions to Large Aircraft

Point 3 :
All B747-400 ACFT on TWY Z must be under tow


Taxiway Z
Stands 611, 612, 613, 614, 615 and 615
As a result B747 on Taxiway Z have to be reversed out on to Taxiway S

So what you are saying is that in the game the Aircraft DO NOT fail to pushback, its just that in the SOP's 747F's SHOULD NOT reverse back, they have to be tugged to S from Z! (and I thought I was Pedantic!)

As has been said before you cannot make any gates in this version of the game Aircraft specific (you can make it a light, medium or heavy but again if you make it heavy anything up to this can park there) so to get to this level of detail (and I am sure EGLL is not specific to this) is pretty much impossible to do. You could I guess force ALL aircraft in these spaces to be tugged to S but having spent many hours with the developers sorting out pushback issues in this version at many airports this would be pretty much be a mess but will raise it with them but it would be ALL or nothing as cannot limit to 747F only, so in theory its correct for all other aircraft 🤔

Also, when you comment the other side is "basic", what are you expecting?

In my edited version of Tower 2011 EGLL, I have split Terminal 6 (Cargo) into two
Taxiway Z does not permit B747
Equally, if you observe Heathrow airport B747 on Taxiway Z are very rare due to this restriction, as it ties up a tug for a long time

So you are comparing 2 different games then? In this version (Tower 3D Pro) it is split into 2 as Terminal_Cargo1 and  Terminal_Cargo2.

If you don't want B747's to be in Taxi Z for extreme accuracy then just move the airlines with B747F in them to the other one. Simples

I thought the original question was the person wanted to know why the developers couldn't divide the cargo terminal at JFK into two different terminals instead  of the one large that we have now.

That was I understanding, I could be wrong and wouldn't be the first time.

It was the question over a year ago! (and we all know the answer to the original question).

So Charles, you are not going mad, just the rest of us (well me in particular)
