Help with Real Color

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am new to the Tower 3D Pro world and so far, I absolutely love the sim. However, I cannot get the Real Color add-on to work (TIST, KLAX, KPHL bundle). I have spent a few hours looking through the forum for help, but mostly what I find is related to installations done with Steam, which mine is not. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game several times with no change to the RC problem. The sounds are fine, but I'm getting tired of looking at white tails. I've also installed everything in the order suggested (T3DPro, RT, RC), started the game in Admin mode (the only way the sounds will work), and verified that the airplanes_pack1 and airplanes_pack1.manifest files are in the Extensions>Airplanes folder.

What am I missing?

Ken

did you change the install directory, to make sure it installs in the "pro" folder. I believe the link is still installing in the non-pro file path by default.

 

Mine install and work fine, i install in the same order as you and all I change is the install path.

Do you see the following folder? C:\Program Files (x86)\FeelThere\Tower!3D Pro\Extensions\Airplanes\Texturepacks. This folder is where Real Color needs to be installed. If Real Color installed corrected you would see this folder and several airplane_texpack files.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction guys. The installer was putting everything in the Tower!\Extensions\Airplanes\Texturepacks folder instead of the Tower!3D Pro file.

Unfortunately, now the game hangs at 27% on loading. I guess this means the files went to the right spot - now it just doesn't know what to do with them. Any suggestions?

Got it to work! Thanks Craig and mc16v for your help.

For anyone who runs into the same problem, here's how I overcame it:

Start with a fresh install of Tower!3D Pro. This means making sure the folders where it was originally placed are deleted from your hard drive. Verify that T3DPro is working.
Install Real Traffic. This one has the right path to start with, so it will end up in the right folder. Verify that RT is working.
Install Real Color. The installer for this does not have the right path, so make sure the path is pointed to <YourComputer>\FeelThere\Tower!3D Pro\Extensions\Airplanes. Do not add the Texturepack folder - the installer will do that for you. Verify that RC is working and enjoy. Hope this helps any other newbies that run into this.

An intelligent installer from Nyerges Design would be nice, as would a presence on the support forums.

Ah, but what do I know. You'd think I believe in unicorns and fairies by the way I'm talking.

That is good news Gabor, about half the traffic in this forum concerns this topic.

Any chance of an update to 2017 schedules for Real Traffic?

Yes, there will be updates, but there is no specific release date yet. I think it will be available when the next airport will be release.

How about making these downloadable from the Nyergesdesign web site? We all have our license numbers so why not? PCAviator seems not to post updates ever.

You should be able to use the link from your original confirmation email. That's the way to get any update (core sim, airport add-ons, RT, RC) related to Tower!3D Pro.

tim86,

That's the one add-on I didn't get as I got the 3 RC packages separately, so a snapshot of my directories won't help.  However, the 'usual' cause of white aircraft is that the RC was installed to the wrong folder.  The smart installer (see the graphic posted August, 3 above) works as long as you select the correct option and your T3D is installed to its default option on your C: drive.  If you have installed T3D elsewhere you need to change the RC installation folder to match.

Thank you for your remark. We already fixed the install rout of the installer and we fixed a livery on LAX. The RC bundle is also updated as it contains the LAX. The updated isntaller is available on FeelThere, ATCSuirte and Nyergesdesign websites. You can use your original keycode for the update.

Where can I find these updates? I bought 3d pro, real traffic and real color on the Atcsuite site.

Air Jamaica,

I quote a reply to a very similar question that you asked in another thread:

"You will be able to download the new installer from the original download link what you received after the purchase.
The new installer works with the original activation code."

Why do you keep asking the same question?
