Extending San Francisco

I think that combining Southern California and San Francisco would be too much for our current devices to process, so our best bet (for now), is to have the current/(possible) new regions with a SoCal size.

The green border shows how much should the region be extended:

There are several airports in the extended region, some which aren´t included in the original region:

We may have to wait for the PC port to have that.

Good Idea. The NoCal region is to small I think

Indeed it is.

Combine Southern California and San francisco

It would be too big for our devices to handle right now.

This will be a good idea and the San Fran region is small so this is nice.

Indeed, I had to make quite a lot of turns on my FPL last time to be able to reach cruising altitude las time.

That shows how small San Fran region is.

What app is it that shows the picture of the extended area?

I used Paint to highlight the area that should be extended, based on a screenshot of the Infinite Tracker app.

Nice topic man. Thanks for the effort you put in it

Definitely support this! I feel like there are too many regions that do not have alot of room to move about especially with the number of pilots flying around. San Francisco and Carribean region are 2 examples. Great idea!

The Caribbean is quite big, I´ve never had any space problems while flying in there.

Honestly think Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic should be added. But back to the topic at hand, Great idea, look forward to more expansion ideas from you.
