Very helpful,thanks a lot BobI’m not sure I understand exactly what the first question is asking but I’ll try ...
when a Visa Centre is positioned next to a building with pax waiting to be collected, nothing happens initially. If you tap the dormant visa centre, anything within range will be collected and placed directly into the terminal (only enough buildings will collect to reach max terminal capacity and it will leave some buildings uncollected if that is the case). This costs nothing but is great if your range is 5x5 as one tap collects them all (or as many is needed to fill the terminal) so you don’t need to tap each separately.
A contract is (from memory) only available once the terminal is full and all collectible buildings are “greyed out”. Tap the VC and choose your contract. All buildings within range will immediately collect and store in the Visa Centre. Each building will auto collect as long as the contract is running. You can decide to transfer those pax at any stage (even while the contract is running) and they will all move into the terminal - AS long as the terminal is not full. You only need one free spot and everything in the VC will move across.
Let’s assume you do that as soon as you start a 3hr contract and your first transfer is 5k pax. You cannot do another transfer until your terminal has been reduced to at least max pax -1. The VCs will continue to collect until the contract completes. Once the contract ends, you can’t start another one until the previously collected pax have been transferred to the terminal.
