  1. Tower!3D Pro - KLAS Terminal_E Issues

    Just to be sure, I have confirmed that no Terminal_E gates will accept arriving aircraft. I created a simple schedule that included 14 VRD flights and none of them ever arrived. Again I believe this is tied to the direction parameter I mentioned in the KJFK thread - http://forum.simflight.com/topic/84614-tower3d-pro-kjfk-terminal_4-arrival-issues/. I've attached my log file in case it is needed. Craig output_log.txt
  2. I just ran a session at KLAS and noticed I was not getting any arrivals at Terminal E. As best as I can tell, there are 14 gates assigned to Terminal_E. I started my session at 19:00, and noticed just a few planes at Terminal E. Looking at the log ASA621 was at E5, VRD483 at E10, and VRD919 at E13. Theoretically, that leaves 11 gates available. However, every arrival that was to park at Terminal_E got a no free terminal message: At 18:49, BAW275 a 744 failed to arrive because of a no free terminal message. At 18:54, WJA1352 a 73H got a no free terminal message. At 19:01, ASA620 a 73W got a no free terminal message. At 19:35, WJA756 as 73W got a no free terminal message. There are obviously open gates, so there must be something in the way that these gates are defined (?possibly termlimit?) that is keeping them from being used. I'm hoping this is an easy fix and can be added to the SP for KLAS. Thanks! output_log.txt

    It should. http://forum.simflight.com/topic/84471-list-of-issues-klas-post-sp2-feelthere/
  4. Nyerges KPHX Just Released (Updated)

    Yes, on the BMT site we are still only seeing sp6v2. Looks like sp6v3 has yet to make it there.
  5. CUSTOM (REAL) Traffic #4 -- KLGA !!! FREE to the Community!

    Hey Joe, I noticed in your terminal file you have the following entry: Terminal_GA: GA,EJA. Unfortunately this doesn't work. You can't combine GA and airlines in a terminal entry, it actually keeps the GA flights from appearing. You'll see error messages like "Airplane dropped, no international terminal: N12345". I ran across this issue when creating a contest schedule for Tower_MP Discord server community. In Real Traffic, it looks like Gabor moved the EJA flights to the gaandlocaltraffic file instead of the schedule file to alleviate this issue. Craig
  6. I am finding a similar issue at KJFK that I found at KLAS - http://forum.simflight.com/topic/84609-tower3d-pro-klas-terminal_e-issues/ After digging into some XML I suspected KJFK Terminal_4 would have a similar issue where arriving airplanes aren't using some of the gates. What I found is that 8 gates in Terminal_4 would not accept arrivals thus causing no free terminal issues. The gates are T4_40, T4_41, T4_43, T4_44, T4_45, T4_46, T4_47, and T4_48. I've attached my log file from a session I built to clearly demonstrate the issue. What I am finding in the XML is that these gates are defined as direction="0" instead of direction = "1". I'm not exactly sure what this means and don't know if it is intentional, but it keeps the gates from accepting arriving planes. Hopefully, the fix is as simple at it sounds. Definitely impacts KJFK and KLAS which I believe are both being worked on for an SP. IMHO, the fix for this issue needs to be included in the SP. Craig output_log.txt
  7. CUSTOM (REAL) Traffic #2 -- KLAS !! FREE to the Community!

    The results won't change - there is an issue with Terminal_E impacting arrivals. http://forum.simflight.com/topic/84609-tower3d-pro-klas-terminal_e-issues/
  8. Tower!3D Pro - KLAS Terminal_E Issues

    Hmmmm - it's probably not termlimit because I was able to get a 744 at each of the gates. Must be something else. Happy debugging! :)
  9. KLGA Issues #SimSmithDesign

    Kev, this is good work - I've noticed this issue too lately. Two suggestions to get this in front of FeelThere (instead of SimSmith) - a separate topic (as you mentioned) and log files ("no log no bug").
  10. LAS Southwest planes at terminal E?

    From what I've seen at all the airports is that any airline assigned to more than one terminal appears to use one terminal over another. And some gates are consistently used over and over. All of this is most easily evident at KATL. The sim engine determines actual gate usage, but I haven't figured out the method to its madness. It does, however, appear to be more sequential than random. if you are really interested on what is happening with your schedule, the output_log.txt file will show you exactly each gate that is used, how often, and what arriving planes are to be used for later departures. And, keep in mind, because the sim loads six hours worth of flights, gate availability (no free terminal) will be an issue no matter what schedule you use. Regarding Janet, you could create even a new code or modify an existing one (assuming you want to hear a callsign other than Continental). Doesn't really matter.
  11. In real life, runway 8 is not used for arrivals - even though the sim allows you to select it. Runway 17 would be a more realistic arrival runway in combination with 9R. And for what it is worth, the sim does not allow you to include a runway in taxi instructions (i.e., no back taxiing).
  12. Cannot move windows to other monitors

    How are you attempting to move the windows and what happens when you try? You should see a file called output_log.txt in your tower3d_data folder or if you start the sim using tower3d.bat you should have a game.log folder in the root directory. There's also an output_log.txt in the \Tower!3D Pro\mmwindow\mmwindow_Data folder that might have some information of worth.
  13. SP3 Tower!3d Pro

    The extensions folder and its subfolders are added by Real Traffic and Real Color.
  14. Help with settings in Tower 3d Pro

    In doing a little research I found there are two sets of voices/voice services on Windows 10. The voices (SAPI5) used by Tower!3D Pro can be found by bringing up the Speech Recognition Control Panel and looking at the Text to Speech tab. In my case, I have David and Zira installed and both voices are used in the sim. There's another set of voices that can be found by going to Control Panel Settings, Time & language, Speech. I have the same voices you have plus a few more. Apparently these voices are used by Windows Store apps. Theoretically you can get the Mobile voices to work with SAPI5, but it involves hacking the registry. I'd like to hear a few more voices, if I ever get brave enough I may give it a try. ;)
  15. Bugs at KBOS past Tower!3D Pro SP3

    Looking at the log files, in the case of both UAL2400 and JBU2369 there was a RUNWAY command issue after the LINE UP AND WAIT. I don't know if this was an attempt to get them to move or what actually got them stuck, but found it interesting nonetheless. ... UAL2400 RUNWAY 15R LINE UP AND WAIT UAL2400 RUNWAY 15R UAL2400 RUNWAY 15R CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF UPON REACHING ALTITUDE 3000 CONTACT DEPARTURE ... ... JBU2369 RUNWAY 33L LINE UP AND WAIT JBU2369 RUNWAY 33L JBU2369 RUNWAY 33L CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF UPON REACHING ALTITUDE 3000 CONTACT DEPARTURE ...
  16. Custom KJFK flight schedules

    Joe and others base their schedules on real life data, so despite their efforts they won't get you anything like that. The above session more than likely used a maxed out schedule created by the Scheduler Creator tool. If you are looking for volume and don't care about data recency, then it is what you are looking for. http://forum.simflight.com/topic/76191-tower-schedule-creator-24-v1-released-includes-cyyz/
  17. Adirs Panel

    To my knowledge, the ADIRS cross doesn't do anything for anybody. Right click, hold, and drag the data tags to move them. Enjoy!
  18. KLAS loading problem

    I believe the installer defaults to the Tower 3D folder and not Tower!3D Pro. If you didn't change this you'll either need to move the files or reinstall to the correct location.

    SP2 on the outside but definitely SP3 on the inside. :) Much improved arrival flow at all airports - single runway, parallel runways, crossing runways, three arrival runways ... you name it! Well done FeelThere team, well done!
  20. Every system is unique ... as soon as you begin installing software, updating drivers, etc. you've made it unique. This software needs admin rights. Right click on the tower3D.exe and select Properties (see attached image), then select the Compatibility tab, and then check the box for "Run this program as an administrator". Then click OK or Apply. Run tower3d and the click yes at the prompt. This fixes the speech issue for most folks. The manual statement you reference is incorrect. Ignore the part saying "using the left-mouse button". FeelThere is aware of the issue (http://forum.simflight.com/topic/82888-pro-no-pilot-voices/?tab=comments#comment-499927) , they just haven't updated the manual yet.
  21. LEFT SHIFT controls voice. When clicking test speech you should hear something. Have you tried running the sim as administrator? You never answered that question. You asked, "Why doesn't FeelThere have these answers"?? They actually do if you read the threads. But, keep in mind, your system is unique. And because of that you're problem may be unique. If you continue to have issues, you should follow the instructions in the SPEECH ISSUE thread as previously suggested..
  22. Well, I guess Mom was right after all! ;) In creating a schedule for a contest on Tower_MP using the Over-Ocean Operation Procedure I noticed I didn't get any traffic after midnight. To confirm this I ran a session at KBOS starting at 23:00 using the real Traffic Schedule. A few planes that were delayed arrived after midnight but nothing that was scheduled to arrive or depart ever spawned. In the attached log file there are timestamps beginning with hour 24 and 25 so something tells me there could be a time calculation issue. When starting a session at 00:00, the first flight that spawned was at 00:21. Normally the the sim grabs a flight around 15 minutes before the hour to start with. Again, looking at the log file it appears there are some strange timestamps. Thanks for looking into this, Craig PS - In the 23:00 session, I increased the speed to 16x and deleted the planes to get past the midnight hour and see what would happen. in the 00:00 session, I quit the session before handling any planes. output_log_2300.txt output_log_0000.txt
  23. Feel There BF Sale

    Yes, atcsuite.com is a FeelThere site. I haven't run across that ad but I'm curious if it applies to Tower!2011, Tower!3D, Tower!3D! Pro, or everything?
  24. KLGA Released for Tower

    And don't forget about the other regionals and airports Skywest flies for Delta, American, United and Alaska. Express Jet flies for Delta, American and United. Compass flies for Delta and American. And there are a few others that fly for multiple airlines. What IATA's do we use for these guys? Additionally, I was under the impression FeelThere wanted to stick with real life codes. Again, I feel confident FeelThere can solution this. However, it will require an SP and/or changes to RT/RC. So, then it becomes a matter of priority in this or the next version of Pro.
