  2. Here's the next update for STB for Prepar3D V4, major changes in bold: · Further content updates (airline logos, aircraft and airline configuration files) for Just Flight TrafficGlobal. · Major upgrade of the STB Date-Time architecture to support 64bit values and multiweek schedules. The latter provide schedule repeat periods of TWO, FIVE and EIGHT WEEKS in addition to the default. · Dates now presented in US format (e.g. Month Day) when the local Windows culture is set to US (or any other culture that uses the same convention). · Added the schedule repeat period value to flight details dialogue and show both local and Zulu schedule times when tracing is set to verbose level. · STB is compiling all traffic files starting with ".BGL", rather than those that are ".BGL” exactly. · Bug fix: When determining the width of the airline logo column, the AirlineLogoWidth setting is always used rather than column properties saved to the settings file. · Bug Fix: Null exception caused by STB AI Observer · Add a small margin to the airline logo width column to ensure it displays correctly. · Added exception handling to the methods that handle callbacks from Simconnect that would otherwise fail silently. · Force integer division to double precision where the result can be -1 > 0 < 1, to avoid underrun. The multi week schedule support turned out to be a huge piece of work, essentially requiring a new approach to the concept of time in STB which took quite some time to get done. We need a more flexible approach when displaying date/times, so here's an example of what you'll see with a multi week schedule: Flights that occur a week or more away include the full date and time, while those from tomorrow up to a week just include the day name. The other big change is support for the US style date format, and any other cultures that present the month before the day name. In other words, looking at the screen shot you will now see "Sun Jun 25 06:24" instead of "Sun 25 Jun 06:24". The format is automatically set by the culture your Windows PC is using. Given the amount of change, I'd like to run this update as an open beta. Please download and install, and please share your experiences whether "good", "bad" or "everything's fine" You can download the update from here: http://bit.ly/2JFmf9m STB-DS isn't available quite yet, that should be here in the next few days. Many thanks Simon

    Great can't wait, long time ago I purchased London Control, excellent training base but lacked the eye candy of TowerPro. It was good training and helped me to get a Tower licence on vatsim. 😎

    Help with KLAS Extension

    I am truly hopeful this is one annoyance that the new version will eliminate. Perhaps a check of which version, Plain or Pro is installed and then a default for that directory. I have to say this has caused harm to FT's reputation due to the confusion surrounding installation for new players. It sets a bad precedent in my opinion and gets many people off on the wrong foot. It is high on my "Wanted" list.

    Downloading Tower 3D Pro problem

    Purchasing from Steam directly seems to be the answer, the "add a game" tab within Steam still requires a 10 to 15 digit product code which I dont have and does not appear on BMT paperwork. Hi Wayne, at least BMT respond to emails but cannot help as they are only money collectors, not product distributors. Now they tell me!!!!! Asked for a refund and was directed back to "feelthere.zendesk" (who as you may remember are not responding to emails until Monday morning). My fault for purchasing on a Friday from the US. Hmmmmmmmmmm. I also "Assumed" that the system was automated, like PMDG, ORBX, NAVDATA. FSPILOT, etc, etc. My fault NEVER assume. I am trying to remain calm and the response on this site is helping. As I have a registration key, all I need is the product code. Or is that breaking the rules"?? Mike.😎

    FSLABS A320 & FSUIPC Problem

    Not initially, as we don't know hat to look for. The default logging will show whether FSUIPC is running okay. Be sure to close the session, after observing your problems of course, before getting the log -- there's more useful information at the end. How do you "generate a new FSUIPC INI"? That file is created for you and maintained via the FSUIPC Settings. There's nothing that can be set in the INI which will stop FSUIPC settings opening. The FSUIPC install is correct if the FSUIPC entry appears in the menu. There's then nothing else to it except the DLL itself in the Modules folder. I've really no idea how you "regenerated" the INI file. You can edit it or delete it, but I don't understand what you are doing. Pete

    ALASKA AIRLINES

    Just for the record: I'll make an analogy for Tower3D Pro with another 'niche' game of mine, Out of the Park Baseball. Now, OOP as it's known has been around since the early 90's and has grown over the years bit by bit, each year a new release with varying amounts of progress and new features. It now has an official MLB and Players license which opens up all sorts of capabilities like doing justice for the Negro Leagues, etc. For someone looking for a detailed simulation of being a General Manager and/or Manager of a Franchise, real or fictional, there is really no other game in town. Yet, on their forums posters get all bent out of shape about matters they have very little ground to stand on protesting. Seems to me Tower3D Pro is in the exact same boat. I don't know of any other ATC simulator that does all that this game does with the support we enjoy. Now, some of you may laugh at that statement, but REALLY... stop and think about it. Where else are you going to go if you want a detailed ATC game? Hmm? If there is a better alternative, don't you think many of us would be elsewhere than this board discussing and tactfully expressing our desires for features and improvements?? Folks who open their mouths and spout off before they really take in the situation with this game really need to adjust their attitude. Do all of us get frustrated with the pace of progress from Vic and Co. and Gabor as well? You Betcha. Would we all rather see monthly releases of patches and upgrades to existing versions of the game and the individual airports? You're damned right we would! However, most well-adjusted, mature individuals here temper their content, questions and comments in the knowledge that FeelThere and Nyerges have limited resources of time, money and manpower to apply to Tower3DPro. More importantly, we understand that continually "whipping the horse" to go faster will eventually result in him lying down rather than going any faster. There is always the risk of killing the golden goose, so to speak. So, let's all be careful not to over-do it when it comes to vitriol and hard lines getting drawn in the proverbial sand. Making demands doesn't help our cause, and may actually hasten a quicker end to the life of Tower3D. /rant off

    FSLABS A320 & FSUIPC Problem

    Thank you Pete. Should I enable any special logging in the fsuipc.ini? I did learn something new yesterday. While going through the painful process of elimination of various add ons, I eventually generated a new fsuipc.ini, resulting in fsuipc not opening while even in default airplanes, so maybe something is astray with my fsuipc install, or maybe even simconnet. i couldn’t open fsuipc window with any airplane after regenerating fsuipc.ini, and eventually copied my backed up ini back to the modules folder, and all airplanes but FSLABS worked fine again. Too strange. Unfortunately my support ticket and forum entry with the developer have not yielded much ideas/support. I’ll likely update to Prepare3d in 3-4 months and will have an opportunity to start new, I was just hoping you had any ideas. All the best, Pete

    Downloading Tower 3D Pro problem

    Yeah i know how that time difference feels! On the bottom left when you open steam, there is add game. If you click on this there is an option to activate product on steam, this may be where you put your registration key? I'm not 100% sure as i bought mine directly from Steam
  19. Hi Fabio, Any plans to add FSL airbus functionality? pAnmAn

    As hexed said real colour is attached to the VX(Virgin) so it will show up as an normal Alaska flight just with a Virgin livery, also there is only an Alaska A320 livery in KLAS and KMCO RC at the moment. Having too many Alaska A320's right now would be unrealistic anyway, it's hard to say for sure but its a safe bet the majority are still under Virgin liveries.(that is why you are seeing the VX code)

    LuaToggle Clarification

    Yes, that's one way to run a plug-in. Correct. None of the assignable Lua controls other than Lua <name> and LuaDebug <name> actually load and run a plug-in. they are all designed to talk to or affect the way a running plug-in acts. There's no point in toggling a flag from one state to another n a plug-in which has just been loaded -- it might as well simply assume such a toggle in the first place. Yes. Scripts intended to remain running can be loaded via [Auto] sections, or by macro, or by other Lua plug-ins, or, still, by assignment to a Lua <name> control. The difference between a plug-in designed to stay running and one which just does something and terminates is the presence of event functions which tell it to wait for something to happen -- like a flag being toggled, or an offset changing, and so on. If you want to assign a key or button to a plug-in which just does something and exits, but you want it to do somethnig different each time, use the parameter value when assigning to Lua <name>. That's passed to the plug-in as the variable "ipcPARAM". Pete

    Downloading Tower 3D Pro problem

    Hi Ben, thanks for the heads up, yes BTM sent me two emails, neither contained a download link. I emailed BTM only to be told go to Steam, or contact feelthere.zendesk.com , which I did and They referred me to the note on "Feelthere"web page about "Steam"download. Whatever that is! I have a steam account but cannot find within it anywhere to download this program. Yes I have checked spam mail repeatedly, no joy. Ben, just noticed you are about 3 hours ahead of me could explain why I am not getting any response. When I am awake and functioning everyone in the US is asleep and vice versa. Now of course its the weekend and I dont expect much to happen until Tuesday moring Brisbane time. Again thank you for the reply and moral support. Safe landings Ben Regards Mike.😎
  23. Hi please try use Locked View for avoid jitter but im pretty sure that as you told before in P3D > 4.2 it is much better! . For Sound On and sound off i check but i ll fix it in next bug fix update soon. For Flaps and landing gears i think you dont see because starting from ColdAndDark it is not supported. There are a lot of varibles custom for every plane , but i m adding more vars every build i release 😉 F

    The IATA is linked to the livery, so it will display the Virgin livery (just with the Alaska ICAO and callsign)

    Thanks, I should have checked that. I haven't worked SFO for quite a while. Just for clarification, does a VX A320 flight pick up an Alaska livery or a Virgin America livery? Kev M

    FSC 9.75 and PCAviator (answered)

    Thanks, Volker. I hadn't set the "Follow" option, so missed your post (above). Now rectified. I've managed to add FSC to the new Aerosoft database site (no problem there) ... but the D/L link is still 9.7.0. I'm sorry, but I'm a little confused (easily done at my age!!) ... is 9.75 available for P3Dv4 - or is my current 9.7.0 the only/latest version that is able to work with P3Dv4 (for legal reasons)? Thanks for all your help! Adam.
  27. Hi Pete, Is my understanding below correct? If a key assignment is made using Lua ScriptName under the FSUIPC Key assignments tab, then when that key is pressed the Lua file ScriptName is loaded and run. In contrast to this, if a key assignment is made using LuaToggle ScriptName along with a Parameter field entry (flag number), then when the key is pressed the associated flag value is toggled, but that is all, the script ScriptName is not loaded and run at that point due to the key stroke. So if ScriptName is to detect and process the changed flag value, [e.g., by using event.flag( ) ], ScriptName must of previously been loaded and run such as by listing it under an [Auto] section in the FSUIPC.ini file. Thanks, Al

    Help with KLAS Extension

    I did manage to open the pictures, and it looks like you have extension folders inside extension folders inside extension folders😋 As @crbascotthas said you have installed incorrectly I assume you have downloaded the klas airport as well as real traffic? Your folder needs to look like the pics below, the best idea may be to just cut and paste the files into the folder, depending on how confident you feel on doing that. Otherwise as said above, delete all what you have done and reinstall from scratch
