Devblog #11

Good day, dear tycoons! The very last news are here!


If you missed somehow: we successfully finished a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Thank our great backers 150% were raised! That was an amazing and inspirational experience.

Short answer: “It’s not possible at the moment”

We are getting a lot of requests for late back, beta access etc. Unfortunately this not possible at the moment. We got a very straight answer from Steam: it’s not allowed to sell Steam keys before release. So as we will not start the second crowdfunding campaign somewhere (we will not) we are not allowed to distribute Steam keys. If you have any ideas please share on our forum or twitter.

Beta Test

The beta test was started after the Kickstarter campaign. We don’t have dedicated QA so it’s hard to overestimate testers’ contribution. Again: Thank you for helping to bring closer the release date.

Some facts about the process:

Players launched the game last month
Game sessions
Tickets in the bug tracker
Bugs fixed
What is going on right now?

We are working on the next major update. It includes:

  • Schedule returned. Operating airport with simultaneously on-demand and scheduled flights (good base for GA😉). The player will be able to choose what type of flight will be accepted each ramp. Together with that, we do some refactoring for flights’ templates and generators.
  • Fuel Service Management. Fuel companies, different types of contracts and supplies’ time management. We will implement similar management for each service. Though Fuel Management is one of the most complex. Also, the general control dashboard will be implemented for all services and airport operations.
  • Bank loans. Not that big feature but highly requested.
  • Content updates. Minor model tweaks (like new DC4 with galley door etc.) and improving PAX animations.
  • And last but not least: bug fix.


One little pre-announcement in the end. We are going to take part in several expos this year. So if the virus and selection boards will let us participate we will be glad to see you in our booth: the freshest build and the devs in the flesh. We will provide more details later. Stay tuned!

Real Welders.

Hi аll!

Sky Haven goes to Kickstarter! Subscribe not to miss the start on

We will show something never shown before and you will understand why it is taking us that long to make the game 😉

You probably know our team have been working on airport tycoon Sky Haven for several years. We have come a long way. This was pretty hard but interesting and exciting path. Now time has come for the next step.

The game grew up and many features were implemented and a lot of features to be done. We want to share the experience of the game now and together with your thoughts and feedback polish the gameplay to its fullest.

Project complexity is challenging but we don’t want get rid of its core features. We love the game and believe together with the community we can make it.

What’s next

A lot of updates. Last year we kept in a secret a lot of our work because we were not sure if we can make it and didn’t want to let you down with empty promises. Now we confident that we can. We have already done almost all the path and with your support we will make the great game.

Devblog #9


It looks like intervals between our devblogs are becoming increasingly larger instead of smaller.

Well, the bigger the project, the more ends you have to tie and more work to complete for each next step. We will try (again) to issue next devblog faster than in 5 months.

What we did in all of the time that has passed:

  1. We finally got Airlines (more details below)
  2. Roads and Traffic:
    • All the vehicles now make turns correctly(almost every time).
    • Because of correct turns, we had to remake roads and taxiways. They are better now.
    • Auxiliary snapping for roads and taxiways. Highlights and rulers assist in making a great road system.
    • Tooltips and highlights are shown when a road cannot be placed. It’s easy to understand what interferes with road construction.

3. Services :

    • RAMP Service – After Flight Check. Agents inspect an airplane after arriving.
    • ULD cargo load is (almost) done: special load vehicles and LD3 cargo units. Now the airport will be able to take in heavy airplanes.

4. UI/UX:

    • Vehicles’ deployment on the selected parking. It’s possible to determine the parking option for each unit. E.g. the player may want to have Fuel Trucks closer to the Fuel Station or Buses closer to the gates, etc. Now you just place a Parking Lot in the position you want and buy the vehicles you want to have on it. If you miss, just re-attach your unit to another Parking Lot.
    • Different cursors help to understand what mode you are in: bulldozer, traffic link, etc.
    • Outline for a hovered object. We got tired of missing objects we want to click on when choosing objects and vehicles. Now we have a cute outline for highlighting them to solve that problem.
    • Tooltips. Many tooltips for everything. We will add this feature that the player could get information about any object or UI element. 

5. Optimization:

    • A lot of new content was added: Airplanes, Fuel Trucks, etc. Some of those things we had shown on Twitter, some things not yet. 
    • Huge optimization on memory distribution and performance. The game is becoming more and more complex, but we try to keep the FPS and requirements within reason.  
    • Over 300 commits starting with “Fixed” or “Improved”

New services coming very soon:

  • Water supply 
  • Lavatory drainage
  • Ground Power
  • Pushback Jet Bridge


Now the player gets all flights from the Airlines. They are different – they have different demands, fleet, and passengers. The airport can work with limited airlines simultaneously. Of course, this limit can be increased with research and airport development.

Each airline has tiers of cooperation, At the start, any airline provides a limited amount of flights – Tier 0 flights. To reach the next level (Tier 1, Tier 2, etc) the player has to schedule all current flights and meet specific demands for the tier: apron services, terminal services,  rating, passenger traffic, etc. Each airline has different requirements based on its type (International, Domestic and Discount).

The airport now can be “wide” or “tall”  (yes we love 4x games 😉 ). Focus on work with specific airlines and become the main hub for them. Or try to work with as many airlines as possible. Or find a comfortable balance.


We are not ready to announce a specific date. But definitely, Early Access will be this fall. Fall 2019.

Devblog #8

Hello tycoons! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

This year was very busy and fruitful. We put together the first playable build and showed it at Gamescom. And we are still dealing with feedback 😂.

We have long discussed and thought in what form and when to release the game. But, thanks to the work after the exhibition, it became clear that in its current form this would not be something that we had originally conceived and could deceive the expectations of many. Therefore, it was decided to move the release to 2019.

We are announcing this now because until the last moment we were not sure. However, this will definitely benefit the game.

Much has been done since the last the devblog. Much more to be done.

Last updates:

  • New UI. Our goal is to make the game intuitive. Now the player sees all the income and expenses on the screen. If any aircraft or vehicle has a problem, a specific icon(badge) appears hovering that aircraft or vehicle. In addition, every day the player can see a daily report with a detailed description of income and losses.

  • Parking. Now the vehicles are in the parking lot. You can see what vehicles and how much space is left in them. If necessary, you can transfer equipment from one parking lot to another. At the same time the garage remains in the game, in it vehicles are serviced and maintained when the time comes. A progress bar in the window of each vehicle shows how much time your vehicle has left before it needs to be serviced.

  • The refueling service now consists of two types of buildings – Fuel Storages and Fuel Stations. Storages are responsible for the amount of fuel at the airport, and Fuel Stations for timely refueling of Fuel Trucks. The progress of refueling is now displayed in real time in the Fuel Station window.

  • Linkin park. Parking link. Each parking lot can be connected to certain ramps. Thus, specific ramps can be serviced by specific parking lots. Thanks to this, the player will be able to prioritize service and optimize logistics on the airfield.

  • Negotiations. Yes, now the player can negotiate changing different parameters of the transaction before signing it. At first, there is little that can be changed, but by improving his negotiation skills (yes, research), the player will be able to adjust more and more contract parameters.

  • Speed. We slightly changed the speed of the game and added another speed. Now, on the one hand, you can see how everything moves smoothly and realistically, and on the other hand, if necessary, you can quickly fast forward time. Even at the fastest speed nothing breaks down and works as it should.

What’s next

    • First of all, we will continue to work on the stability of the game and prepare for release.
    • Even more interfaces and tools to manage the game.
    • Implementation of the new services at the airport: Water, Waste Management, GPU (ground power unit), Pushback (!) and others.
  • Something secret that we are working on, but for the time being we are not revealing it.

Devblog #7


Couple weeks ago we showcased the game at Gamescom in Köln.

The special build was made for the exhibition. Most of them are about gameplay convenience. Such as building-to-road snapping etc. But also you can check out a new traffic system.

Devblog #6

Hello folks!

We hope our frequent devblog does not bother you 😉

If you still didn’t know, we have important news. Sky Haven’s Steam page has been launched! You can find all the important updates and discussions there. We still issue devblogs although not as often as we want, but at least we answer quickly on the steam community forums and our website forum.

It took a bit more time than anticipated for all the goals that were achieved:

  • Multi-unit requests – DONE!
  • Catering – DONE!
  • New UI – many many windows and elements – DONE!
  • Even more optimization and debugging – in progress 🙂

In addition we added luggage unload and transportation (“bulk” type) from airplanes to terminal. Awesome coop of Belt Loader and Tugs & Dollies. Also tons of small fixes and improvements: ramps with mount, registration numbers on the aircrafts and many, many other fixes. Good job Real Welders.  🙂

What we are doing now:

  • Runway as a checkpoint: proper use, minimum interval, departure and arrival queues, etc.
  • Queue corridors. As game a lot about queue systems this is a very important feature.
  • Traffic system on apron. You can notice that all the vehicles move in the center of the roads and can pass through each other. Time to fix this. 

Also we going to publish a new video next few weeks. Some issues have to be fixed before that and we will introduce four services (luggage, passengers, fueling, catering) working.

Devblog #5

Hello folks!

We hope our frequent devblog does not bother you 😉

If you still didn’t know, we have important news. Sky Haven’s Steam page has been launched! You can find all the important updates and discussions there. We still issue devblogs although not as often as we want, but at least we answer quickly on the steam community forums and our website forum.


In this devblog we reveal a bit how interaction works with airlines.

There are three types of airlines in the game:

  • Discounter
  • Domestic
  • International

The types determine the main focus of an airline. E.g. some discounters have privilege class, but mainly they are lowcosters. Or International airlines can make domestic flights with a small airplane but mainly they use big planes for long haul flights. Discounters need few services, but a fast turnaround. International types, on the other hand, need many different services and are more focused on quality. Domestic airlines can combine options of the other two.

Each type of airline tends to use specific airplanes: wide-bodies for international, narrow-bodies for domestic and discounters. Also some domestic types can have small airplanes often and medium sized planes are usually popular with discounters.

One more difference in passengers. Discounters’ passengers don’t require much in the airport. Just some snacks and drinks and they won’t be upset much if they won’t find any. Domestic airlines have more demanding passengers. Also they have business and 1st class passengers that want something more comfortable than a snack booth. On the other hand they pay more. Finally International airlines have even more bizarre passengers, including VIPs. They require lounges, luxury cafes etc. After passenger leaves, he or she rates the airport. Rating is very important as it defines how current and new airlines will cooperate with the player.

Airline Hub

when scheduling and performing flights of a specific airline, the player gets “relationship points” for that airline. When there are enough points, new relationship level is unlocked. Each level offers challenges and benefits. Challenges consist of rating, common infrastructure (e.g. total number of gates), dedicated infrastructure (e.g. number of gates dedicated to the airline). Benefits make up more flights to the airport. Finally an airline could decide to make a hub in the airport. This will bring even more flights and passengers but also it will impact gameplay with strict requirements.


Buses attracted our attention again. Some bus drivers didn’t want to deliver passengers to gates.  Sometimes they even drove them directly to the garage. We have to work a bit on their navigation and motivation.

Fueling mechanics and fuel supply are almost in the final stage. Now fuel station has max amount, replenishing speed etc. If it is necessary, fuel trucks can refill their tanks. Of course all the parameters are upgradable via research.

All the vehicles now know their place on the ramp. It’s important because we plan to add even more services so there has to be order on the ramp.

We polished the look of the game. Lighting system was highly improved.

Instead of catering we decided to implement baggage handling. As it is more important in airports.


  • Multi-unit requests (still in progress).
  • Catering.
  • Even more optimization and debuging. As project grows we have to pay attention to this more and more.
  • New UI! It’s time to change prototype interface to something more fancy and convenient. However it’s still not final.

See you in the next devblog! Coming (we hope) soon!

Devblog #4

We are glad to welcome you back to our irregular blog!

Much has happened since the last letter. First of all we took part in a conference – DevGAMM Minsk 2017. We are eager to share some interesting videos from Game Lynch (one of the events on the conference) with you. We all had lot of fun and useful feedback. Many new weird bugs as well.

Look at this landing airplane, it’s a bit strange (may be it is because we still don’t have RWY lights):

Try to find the table with a game about airports:


Today we will talk about an airport zoning. All spaces in the terminal are split into zones: international, domestic, clear, common, etc. Some of these zones can overlap onto each other: Clean Domestic, Clean International, Common Domestic, etc. But some can not: impossible to have “Common International”.

Zones are formed by entrances and gateways. E.g. Security check has “Clear” zone on it’s exit, “Passport control” has “International”, etc. Of course there are several rules how to resolve instances where different gateways lead to different zones in the same area.

Zones determine which objects can be constructed. Duty free can only be in the “International” zone, Passport control – only in “Clean” zone, etc. However gates coulcand be placed in almost any zone. At the start you don’t really care about this. Only the most undemanding airlines will agree to work with you. But when you will want to cooperate with bigger companies, your airport will have to provide Security Checks and Gates in “Clean” zones. With International flights you will need Passport controls and “International” zones.

In a big multi-zoned terminal it could be pretty challenging to manage all the flows and gateways.


Thanks to the DevGAMM preparation we greatly improved game stability and polished a lot. When you demonstrate a game to a fresh audience, you want to have all the small bugs cleaned. Also Game Lynch and the showcase event gave us a lot of new ideas and inspiration.

We have improved our core apron management. The system known as “Ground Units & Landed Aircrafts’ Guidance” has been cut. We have new one “Enhanced-On-Land-Guidance” instead. It much more advanced and fast. New abbreviation for the system sounds much better as well.

A lot of small but important improvements in the interface were made. E.g. new fancy zone highlighting:

Do not hesitate subscribe our twitter. There are something interesting there: new remote ramps with “drive-through” for aircrafts(Twitter) or  super awesome take-off and landing. Checkout this video (Twitter).

May be we are forgetting something. Check out the gameplay video. Something interesting can be found:


  • First of all we will make an effort to post devblogs more often.
  • Currently we are working on a Catering system. It will be ready soon.
  • Each service can demand more than one unit. Especially for big planes. E.g. 3 or 4 apron buses.
  • All tech vehicles will have correct waiting positions near ramps. And smaller versions for ramps and runways will be added soon.
  • We will continue to make the economy system and other stuff. Now it’s time for us go back to development.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Devblog #3

Hi everybody!

Long time since we’ve given any word. We even missed(skipped) the September devblog. Though we’re still sharing a lot on our twitter. The tweet about this devblog will be #100 as a matter of fact.

First of all – important news: we are showcasing in the Devgamm conference which will be held in Minsk, Belarus. On the 17th of September we will show our first playable version of the game. So we will glad be to meet everybody who wants play and grab a couple of stickers.

Continuing on with the devblog – in the Design sections we reveal how passengers will get to an airplane within the game. In the Report sections is our first Gameplay Trailer! And in the end we share our plans and over optimistic time estimations. 😉


If you have subscribed to our twitter, you may have already seen all the ways for boarding and disembarking. We have planned implementation for all the following options:

  • Shuttle apron buses (done)
  • Walkways (nearly done)
  • Jet bridges. Simple and complex. With one, two or even three connections.

Also there will be several types of stairs including integrated ones (such as on small jet planes)

One boarding/disembarking option is never better than another just by default. There will be a demand for each type: discounters require simple and cheap means, internationals require conveniency for their passengers. It’s the player’s choice of how and what to work with.


Main result – we have a playable version. Hooray! Here is a short video:

Of course there is a lot to be polished here. Sometimes we find strange features or possible bugs. E.g. a passenger who can’t find the exit stays in the airport and live there forever like in the movie “Terminal”.


We will continue to polish and fix current features. Have you checked out our new current UI? We will make it even better.  Also we will work a bit on vehicle physics and make movement more realistic.
We continue to add new content based on the current core game. It means new services for passengers and airliners.
And last but not least! We are finally starting to sharpen the economy balance using not only pre-planned spreadsheets but also the real game.

Sincerely yours,

Real Welders Team
