    Hello again Controllers! At the beginning of the year, KJFK was my first public custom schedule release. Although it was received well I thought it was time to revisit New York and give it it's due by releasing 7 daily schedule. If that doesn't get you signing New York, New York I don't know what will! πŸ™‚ As always, my schedules are real and based on downloaded information from FlightAware. To avoid duplicate flight number issues a few flight numbers were changed. The schedules are full of passenger, cargo, and a few GA flights - enough to get you controlling like Kennedy Steve. The chart below illustrates the day-by-day commercial and GA traffic included in the daily schedules. For those that enjoy higher traffic volumes, Sunday and Monday are obviously the busiest days with Wednesday and Saturday having their share of fun too. The busiest hour is Tuesday at 08:00 with 92 flights (mostly departures), the busiest hour with balanced arrivals and departures is Monday at 17:00. The most arrivals you'll see in an hour is 52 on Saturday at 14:00. Each daily schedule file has the hourly breakdown to help you choose the traffic volume that satisfies your pallet. And what is a standard feature for my custom schedules, I've included snippet files for each day - optimized schedule files containing 3 hours of flights from the full schedule. For example, the snippet optimized for a 10:00 session start contains flights for the hours of 09, 10, and 11. What I've seen and experienced is that using a full day's schedule (Real Traffic or custom) causes flights to be dropped because of gate availability and delayed due to "no free terminal". By reducing the number of hours in the schedule, you can eliminate the dropped flights and get a richer more realistic flight volume experience. Attached to bottom of this post you'll find a zip file called kjfk_crbascott7.zip that contains: Common files to be used for each of the 7 days: Updated terminal file - kjfk_terminal.txtο»Ώ Updated airlines file - kjfk_airlines.txt Updated airports file - kjfk_airports.txt Reference file for GA/charter airlines included in GA traffic - kjfk_charter_airlines.txt 7 folders containing the daily schedule files (05-Sunday, 06-Monday, 07-Tuesday, 08-Wednesday, 09-Thursday, 10-Friday, 11-Saturday). Within each folder you will find: Full custom schedule file for that day - kjfk_schedule.txt Full GA traffic file for that day - kjfk_gaandlocaltraffic.txt Folders containing snippet schedule files (commercial only) for the hours 06 thru 22. I'd recommend unzipping kjfk_crbascott7.zip into your KJFK folder. It will create a crbascott7 sub-folder (to differentiate it from my earlier KJFK release) with the above mentioned contents. As always, please remember to backup your original Real Traffic files - the current version of sp6v9a is recommended. Feel free to contact me on this forum or Discord with questions, comments, and/or issues. ENJOY!!

    Wayne, here's a tranquilizer (i.e., explanation). The table is a history of the updates - not just the last update. There are actually FIVE entries for RT - but it's by design. Now lay down in the fetal position and count little baby airplanes until you fall asleep. ✈️😴

    Gabor just gave us (and we updated it already) a fix for the problem you mentioned. Now the heavies should be able to use all runways for takeoffs and landings πŸ™‚ Vic

    This was you in a different Topic. How can you say that other people should stop complaining or do their own game whilst you complained about stuff in so many other topics and even start complaining here about Atlanta. Second thing I wanted to say: It would be nice if you could start learning some things about grammar and punctuation so you can be better understood. Because sometimes I need to read your posts like three times to understand them! Cheers

    I play KPHX "often enough" (for someone loving JFK, that is). For me, it definitely leaves enough options for variation, like 8/26 for the northside and the 7s/25s for the southside, or 8/26 departure-only and the 7s/25s arrival only and vice-versa, or not using one of the runways at all, or closing down certain taxiways like S/T (due to the bridge being damaged)...

    Nice work Craig. Been a bit busy then! Will give this a go this week to see how many failures I get!. Interesting runway use today at JFK so will try this out with your schedule. Using 13L and 22L for arrivals and 13R for departures. Never seen this before and will have to watch the runway conflicts on this one! Cue negative points πŸ˜₯

    I've seen this before at other airports. The problem is that if you issue a hold short of a taxiway, it cancels all holds past that, including the implied holds at the runways. Using hold position followed by continue taxi doesn't do this.

    Ok, maybe Craig is correct that I do have OCD. On the current versions sheet there are now 3 versions of RT and it is doing my head in! Please fix. Or send me tranquilizers. Wayne

    Summer was a bit slow, but we took many steps toward faster releases so I certainly hope from September you will not have to wait a month for each release. Gabor's KMEM is coming up this week and we are testing EDDS at the moment. Thank you Vic

    Just to clarify Air Jamaica's info. KLAX does have a Compass livery but only the E170, not the E175. So if you want color you could change the plane for you own use. Also the updated KLAS has both the E170 and E175 and as Air Jamaica said KSFO has the E175. So if you plan to buy either airport in the future, you could get the RC file now for whichever airport you plan to get. There may be others, I do not have all the airports, so this info is only what I have. Nygeres Design was suppose to make a list for us, I haven't seen any mention of it yet.

    I can understand wanting the 8 hour continuity in the game flow. I am that way when it comes to immersion. But unless Vic can come up with a solution on the next version with the whole available gate issue, I really don't see the point. It is dragging down the rest of the game and the overall experience. I am pretty confident he can come up with a better way. I think it was just a result of choices made last time around... unintended consequences if you will. I will be interested to see what Vic has in mind for this next version- actually pretty excited when thinking of the possibilities, regardless of how far away release is likely going to be.

    Yep that gate has bugged me for ages, F7 I believe it is. Sometimes it just sits there, and sometimes it spins, depending on which aircraft it is. The funny thing is that a year or so ago, I actually flew out of that gate on an international flight, and the plane actually did get stuck temporarily ( no spinning, thank God); apparently someone forgot to refuel the pushback truck or so the captain jokingly claimed over the PA system. Very strange when life repeats a simulation. Needless to say I had a private laugh about it πŸ˜‰ Andrew

    I did a little searching and couldn't find a post for this specific gate, but gate issues are not uncommon. I'm sure that is what Joe was so "politely" referring to. An SP for KATL is long overdue, so if/when it is worked on I'm sure they'll include this in the items to be fixed. Thanks for the post.

    All, Near the middle of this post you will find an invite to the Tower_MP Discord server. Tower_MP is a Meeting Place for the MultiPlayer community of ATC Suite enthusiasts. Using text and/or voice chat you can: search for multiplayer playing partners, schedule a multiplayer session, communicate with your partner controller during a session, ask questions of the community, share tips & tricks, share custom files, and hopefully have some fun! Creating this server is an attempt to build a community that will hopefully enhance the enjoyment of the ATC Suite simulators. Upon joining the server you will have full non-administrative access to all text and voice channels. Most of us are going to be new to Discord, so there will obviously be a learning curve. But, necessary adjustments will me made as we grow as a community. You may use the following link to gain access to Tower_MP: https://discord.gg/Q9dvrWg I hope to see you there! Craig Disclaimer: Tower_MP is not associated, affiliated, endorsed, or sponsored by FeelThere and its partners. Additionally, please refrain from using the FeelThere support forum for Tower_MP specific discussion.1 1 For the record, Vic is very supportive of the idea but I still felt a disclaimer was appropriate to avoid confusion.

    The Lua package for FSUIPC and WideClient is installed automatically for you in the FSUIPC Documents sub-folder in your FS Modules folder. It consists of the general introduction to the FSUIPC Lua facilities, a reference guide to the FSUIPC added library functions, and an extensive set of examples, some useful right out of the package. In this post you will always find the latest update, which will often be more up to date than the one installed automatically for you. Download it here: Lua Plugins Package This now contains: * the LuaFileSystem (lfs library) documentation * the new display library for WideClient * details of the gfd WP-6 and DIO facilities * the terminate event. * the ext library for handling external programs and windows--now extended with Shell, Keys and Message facilities. * the mouse library. * the new wnd library, for WideClient only * wideclient ButtonScreen functions ipc.setbtncol and ipc.setbtnstate * ipc.setowndisplay for speparate named, positioned and sized displays for each plug-in (FSUIPC only) * event.Lvar for monitoring named gauge variables (L:Vars). * ipc.SetFriction and ipc.RestoreFrictions, for manipulating SIM1's frictions in FSX/P3D * DynamicFriction.lua example added, courtesy Bob Scott. * Colour (red/white) parameter for the ipc.display function * event.textmenu for intercepting application screen text messages and displaying them locally, and also for displaying copies of application screen menus locally. (FSX SP2 and Acceleration only). * A full set of mouse events in the event library, with an example "mrudder.lua". * com.gethidbuttoncount for FSUIPC4 and WideClient * wnd.bitmap for displaying bitmaps (WideClient only). * event.offsetmask for events on bit changes within offsets (not FSUIPC3) * ext.hasfocus for testing which program has the current focus * ipc.get and ipc.set operate across the WideFS network (on the one workgroup) (This needs WideClient 6.999z1 or later and FSUIPC 4.958 or later) * com.connected and event.comconnect, to detect HID device connectio status. (Only in FSUIPC 4.971b and later, and 5.121c and later) * Updated event.textmenu facilities, and a word-wrapping option in wnd.text (Both only in WideClient 7.145 and later, FSUIPC 5.13 and later for the textmenu). For FSUIPC's Offset references, if you don't need the whole FSUIPC SDK, the offsets documentation is included in these two PDFs: FSUIPC for Programmers (the offsets list is at the back and applies to FS9) FSUIPC4 Offsets Status (Also FSUIPC5: applicable to FSX, ESP and P3D1-4) If you are interested in using the USB / HID / Joystick facilities you may find this little utility helpful too. It scans your USB connections and lists lots of details for attached HID devices: HidScanner Have fun! Pete
