CUSTOM (REAL) Traffic #4 -- KLGA !!! FREE to the Community!

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon all,

My name is Joe.  Thanks for checking out my custom (REAL) traffic schedules. 

You can find me at https://www.youtube.com/c/ATControl playing this game.

 

Happy to announce that I have completed my 4th full day custom-schedule release -- featuring NY - LaGuardia International Airport (KLGA).  This is being offered for FREE to the community. 

**Be sure to check out all my prior custom schedules for KLAX, KLAS & KPHL!

CUSTOM SCHEDULE #4 -- FULL day action from Philadelphia (KLGA) from November 17, 2017.  A full day of flights.  

**GOAL -- To create free-flowing, user-friendly, yet highly realistic flight timetables  --- AND eliminate the gaps (you won't have any gaps of >3 minutes)

 

If you do not have the files at all -OR- need the updated files, you can visit my Dropbox and pick them up. 

**Please check back for edits to these drop box files.  If edits are made, notations will appear below with the date the edit was made and what was changed**

DROPBOX -- KLGA Custom Traffic #4 -- 11-17-2017LGAnew.thumb.png.2b781eb5de869cc15c044bfee6559cf8.png

*********************
Features of this Custom (REAL) Schedule :

---Over 1150 Commercial Flights (correcting developer flight schedules with real times and aircraft types)

---Over 40 General Aviation flights ranging from small prop jets to your elite level Gulfstreams, Dassault Falcons, Learjets, Hawkers, Cessna's and more
  -- Plan accordingly for smaller jets and their take-off and landing speeds
  -- Increased difficulty with a compact airport 


*********************
Terminal Re-assignments -- On Saturday, December 9th, LaGuardia will go through a terminal re-assignment for many airlines in prep for the modernization project to be completed at KLGA.
   -- This custom schedule includes these updated gate locations so you can play what WILL happen in the real world
   -- Delta will now encompass Terminals C & D
   -- JetBlue moving to Satelite Terminal A with Alaska (flying as Skywest)
   -- American, United, Air Canada & Southwest now out of Terminal B


As KLGA is the baby of the 2 New York airports, do not expect long-haul jets, cargo planes or anything international for that matter.  Still a fun airport
with many flights in a compact space.


((Please be aware that some liveries may not show up on certain models of jets due to the way the developer decides to make their game.  At the current time
I have requested updates -- We'll see what happens))


// Proper use of this CUSTOM schedule //

1.  ALWAYS make a folder on your computer, in an easy to find location, and COPY all files from both FEELTHERE folder
    and your source folder (ex. Steam Folder).  Schedules are in BOTH places and must be updated in BOTH places for it
    to work.  

2.  Once copied, Navigate to the airfields of BOTH folders.  Delete out your klga_schedule.txt file, klga_terminal.txt file, AND 
     klga_gaandlocaltraffic.txt files.  Replace them with the custom files.


HAPPY CONTROLLING !!!

I put the three new files in the LGA Extensions folder after deleting the original ones but the loading hangs up at 63%. I don't have Steam for T3DPro. When you say "source folder" what are you referring to other than the LGA Extensions folder?

Does it make any difference whether it's Windows 7 or Windows 10? I'm trying it on the Win 7 computer instead of the Win 10 setup I have.

I've never used Dropbox before. So the actual files have to be downloaded with the blue button in the upper right corner? I was copying the web page and trying to paste that in the folder since it said "txt" but it still doesn't answer the larger question. Other than the airfield folder where do they go? Exactly?

Only difference is you don't get both male and female voices in W7.  Windows 10 gives better speech recognition and extra voices.

Yeah just DL the files to your computer and then replace them with the correct folder locations

Thanks, Joe, that did the trick. Opening the 1900 scenario, I saw right away the change with all the Envoy flights in front of the tower. You're right about Windows 10 being superior with this sim. I find the speech recognition much better than with Windows 7. The distraction dealing with that problem is monumental when things start ramping up. I just finished the 1900 scenario on Windows 10 (the one in your video) with 100% traffic for 1:22 of in-game time and only had four wait penalties, no go-arounds and no conflicts. I don't think I could have done it with 7.

Like hartleecub I don't have T3DPro on Steam, just the downloaded  version from FeelThere so where are the 2 locations to update the three files? (i.e. the FeelThere folder and the "source" folder?).  Haven't got LGA yet but trying to do your LAX one Joe?

 The two-folder step was confusing to me at first when he mentioned the source folder but I only had to put the three files in the Airfields KLGA subdirectory. It works great and is a very nice improvement.

Thanks Joe,

I just moved the 3 relevant files to a spare folder & copied yours back into the Tower3D! Pro\Extensions\Airfields\KLGA folder.

Worked straight away. I DON'T have the steam version. Just the old FeelThere downloads.

Joe, this morning I started the KLGA 1900 scenario with your schedule and ran it for over three hours. It's tremendous. Right before I quit, I had exhausted all traffic at 100% - arrivals and departures - and only had two wait delays. No conflicts and no go-arounds for 1190 points. The clean screen lasted for about 5 seconds before a new arrival popped up but by then I'd had enough and called it a day. Do the delays count for both departures and arrivals and is it 15 minutes that triggers one? Using runway 4 for departures only and 31 for arrivals only is a real challenge. I had a couple of airplanes that were unresponsive to further taxi commands after they landed but don't remember who they were. You do great work.

Mike
