Airport Madness 3D: Next Update

I am working on another update. I just fixed the bug that stops traffic flow, once the player has achieved 150 or so movements.

I’m adding a feature that I call “auto-tag”, which prevents tags from overlapping. It’s does not do a great job of tag management, which is why it will be optional.

I’m also considering adding some bonus features into the game:

-Automatic go around for traffic
-Automatic stop / cross runways
-Auto taxi
-Matched arrival speeds
-Faster taxi speeds

I would like your input on how I might implement these features. I could sell them all as an in-app purchase and name them “ATC Tools”. Or I could enable these over time, as a reward. Or, I could simply add them to “settings”. Thoughts?

I am also looking into my options for “instant replay”, or at the very least, a screenshot of your game ending crash.
