Its so hard to control there. I need to find information on traffic flows because I think CTR is handing me some aircraft way too late and departure just flies everyone thru your approach corridors all day every day lol

I've had similar issues, not sure if it's me not understanding the airspace, or something up with the sim, but I can't wrap my head around this airport, I find MIA easier!

There is definitely something up with the handoffs from CTR. I have tried all sorts of sector combinations, and it always hands off late... Way late.

Sometimes CTR even puts them on the approach and never gives them to me. And departure really needs to have a ceiling under the approach corridors. They have SFC to 150 around the entire map. They constantly climb aircraft into my corridors and I get CAs and can't pass the facility in career mode. I wonder if the real world MCI has the same airspaces that the sim has.

I think MCI is pretty close... But some terminal facilities have a "look & go" SOP where the departure controller can climb aircraft through the arrival space if there are no traffic conflicts. Perhaps that explains the map in MCI? 

On a side note, I just experienced MIA CTR not handing off inbounds as well... So maybe there is something that can cause this behavior is all facilities, albeit more frequently in MCI.
