  1. SP 3.1 FOR TOWER!3D PRO HAS BEEN RELEASED

    I'm also getting random errors in the game with planes not spawning into the game --- I built a schedule with 5 departures and 5 arrivals at LAX and only 3 of them spawned on each side. Something is definitely wrong. You shouldn't get "no free terminals" messages at an airport with 50+ gates and only 5 aircraft scheduled to depart. Here is a separate example of PHL with a log -- around 1430 GA aircraft were entering the schedule to arrive and depart. The game never loaded a single GA flight, the GA terminal had no planes populated, however the log shows the game just kept pushing out "no free terminal". GA terminal only had GA on the line, all aircraft in the GA file were verified to exist in the airplane model file. output_log.txt

    Awesome. Only thing left is for the developers to fix the terminal problem preventing incoming flights and this airport will be legit

  7. One bug and a suggestion

    Two items that should help you out..... For the H1 -- It's not a bug, it's direction. I've included the screen cap of H1 at LAX and the nearby G taxiway on the left. H1 permits taxi eastbound towards 25R. The nearby G taxiway is basiscally at 90degrees to all other routes that meet it so it allows turns to the right or left to go on H as needed. Easy to remember -- H1 is built as a highspeed for 7R (i.e. why it's shape is similar to H3 which is also a eastbound taxi only as well.) So any smaller jets such as (Skywest, BUG, Lakes Air, etc) that get off on H1 you need to issue them a taxi for H - J - B - (then whatever subsequent) to get them to the terminal. Remember, H ends and J gets picked up, so if you only tell it H, the system says "well great, you want H, but H can't go left, so where next?" You don't need to give H1 to get the plane going when they're already on H1 at that point . To pair this with your 2nd question, go here : http://www.airnav.com/airport/KLAX Down the right side is the Airport Diagram (pdf). Highly recommend saving the link to the page as the ground chart gets updated. Print it out or put it on your second monitor when you play the game. Easy to reference when you need to make a callout that is not listed.
  8. Suggestion For LAX

    If something does not accept voice command you can still use the bar at the top of the game and click the destination for the plane. Incredibly rare to have to delete anything in game
  9. Air Collision Alert for two aircraft behind each other

    Hey AJ, You referenced the ASAP fix for this penalty bug. Whats the ETA on this fix?

  11. CUSTOM (REAL) Traffic #2 -- KLAS !! FREE to the Community!

    Appreciate it. Keep grinding.
  12. Turned on the field lights for a night session at PHX and a runway color error exists. I have clipped in a couple pictures to show the issues. (Thx to pilot BAM who's home airport is PHX for the confirm on the colors) 1. Runway lights -- In game -- Red band up the center of the runway, entire length. Real colors at airport should be white edge lights, no band of lights up the center and only white lights in the center of the runway are those that mark the high-speed turnoffs and less-bright center line. The only time a permanent red center line would be a conflict-situation where the lights would change, but in no case should ALL runways be permanently red.
  13. PHX airport error - Field Lights Wrong Colors #NyergesDesign

    I think the post is being missed here. The picture at is rwy 9 at BOS. There is no reason to have red lifhts on the runway when there is no incursion issue AND yes at the ends of runways there are red lights in the direction the plane is FACING. Not where the plane is sitting for departure. In my image the plane is lined up on rwy 9 for departure...for no reason would a set of red lights be in front of the departing jet unless it was at the far end. And yes, pull up Boston, put the field lights on and multiple runways have full length red lights. I just didn’t clip the picture for every single one as one picture advises of the issue
  14. PHX airport error - Field Lights Wrong Colors #NyergesDesign

    It’s not a different issue. It’s runway lights that are red which is the same thing as the topic was started on
  15. PHX airport error - Field Lights Wrong Colors #NyergesDesign

    All runways at Boston are covered in red lights. Add it to the list.
  16. PHX airport error - Field Lights Wrong Colors #NyergesDesign

    It doesn't affect the sim, but it's an error and should be changed
  17. CUSTOM (REAL) Traffic #2 -- KLAS !! FREE to the Community!

    Please see above conversation. the issue is being review and fixed. Thanks.
  18. CUSTOM (REAL) Traffic #2 -- KLAS !! FREE to the Community!

    Going back to check the files today. Give me a little while today and I'll find out what's up. I have an idea of what it probably is. Fix is on the way.
  19. Taxi Problem On PHX

    Cargo landing 25L can easily be sent to the cargo ramp with F-G4-H4-H -- I used it multiple times in my last video, works every time.
  20. Gameplay Reference Cards

    What's going on everyone. I was reading through the forums the other day and quite a few people referenced not knowing many of the "REAL WORLD" airlines being used. I personally know them, however, I even still get tripped up on some of the more 'regional' airlines bought out by the big giants. Also, the Tower3Dpro manual has commands all over the place which are hard to reference when playing the game. I'm here to help you guys. I put together 2 reference cards (links below b/c the forum allows only bite-sized uploads) -- 1.) A organized commands list by departure stages and arrival from air to ground ----- 2.) A reference card covering almost all of the currently available airlines in the game. They are alphabetically listed AND include a picture of the tail (because ATC is not just reading a screen, it's SEEING your target on the field when possible. I did find some extra airlines rolling around at LAX this evening, and had to include those on the lower row of the table. ((Both cards, if you wanted to print them, should be printable on a landscape layout. I'll update both cards with future posts as new commands and airlines become available. ---- ENJOY!!!

  21. Steam on Big Screen TV

    Well...to put in perspective ....good computer gaming monitors on average have a response time of 1-4 ms. Trying to match quality between a large tv and an avg gaming monitor is not exactly easy. And computer monitors are measured in ms response for Black to white and back to black pixel change. Tv’s measure how many frames can be displayed per second. Not sure of the science in matching those but ...I think it speaks clear that most pro gamers do not use TVs anymore these days bc your quality goes way up on computer monitors —games are built on computer monitors not Large TV screens so naturally your better experience is w the comp monitor. Will the game run on a TV...sure. Will you get the same quality.....maybe? W a game as slow as tower it may not matter bc you’re not talking a high-FPS game like call of duty or something. Can’t speak about quality of a computer based site like Steam though since I don’t know their back-end build/design but I’m sure like any other site it’s optomized for your average computer screen size. That’s just coming from web design background work that optimization rules, and experience/performance changes when you change view area.
  22. Terminal Info

    When you call an aircraft and give landing clearing the terminal lights up. Unfortunately the game does not provide a definitive gate on where they are going until a terminal clearance is given. Best way to learn terminal locations is keep playing the game and remembering where airlines park until the developers fix the terminal/gate system.

If edits are made, notations will appear below with the date the edit was made and what was changed** EDIT : As-of 12/15/2017 -- Terminal file was updated to move EJA away from the GA terminal and moved to Terminal A as developers altered game files that prevent GA traffic if EJA is at a GA Terminal line.
