    Hi guys, Is there a possibility (In an existing script) to change the color of an airlplane tag? Sometimes it is hard to read so I have continue change the position of the tag by mouse.

    The new version is now live on NuGet. It's 3.1.4-beta so you'll need to make sure you have "Include Prerelease" checked. To access the screen data for a CDU, declare an instance of PMDG_NGX_CDU_Screen: ' Declare a PMDG_NGX_CDU_Screen variable for the CDU ' Pass the base offset address to the contructor Private cdu0 As PMDG_NGX_CDU_Screen = New PMDG_NGX_CDU_Screen(&H5400) This example code shows a number of different ways to access the text and other info: Private Sub CDUExampleCode() ' Call RefreshData to get the latest screen contents ' (Connection must already be open) cdu0.RefreshData() ' Use Powered property to know if CDU is on If (cdu0.Powered) Then ' Use the ToString() method to get a string of the whole screen. ' Use the optional overload to pass a dilimiter for the rows. ' E.g. Here we pass CRLF so we can display the screen in a text box: ' (Use a fixed size font like 'Consolas' or 'Courier New') Me.txtCDU.Text = cdu0.ToString(vbCrLf) Else Me.txtCDU.Text = "No Power" End If ' To get a single row of text use the Rows array: ' e.g. Row 3 (Index 2 - Arrays are 0 based) Dim row3Text As String = cdu0.Rows(2).ToString() ' To get a the data in single cell of the CDU use the Cells array on the row ' e.g. Row 3 (Index 2), First Character (Index 0): Dim R3C1Char As Char = cdu0.Rows(2).Cells(0).Symbol ' Or as a string: Dim R3C1String As String = cdu0.Rows(2).Cells(0).ToString() ' You can also find other data about the cell: Dim R3C1Colour As PMDG_NGX_CDU_COLOR = cdu0.Rows(2).Cells(0).Color Dim R3C1Flags As PMDG_NGX_CDU_FLAG = cdu0.Rows(2).Cells(0).Flags ' To avoid accessing the row everytime, you can hold a reference to the row: Dim row3 As PMDG_NGX_CDU_Row = cdu0.Rows(2) ' The same for cells: Dim R3C1Cell As PMDG_NGX_CDU_Cell = cdu0.Rows(2).Cells(0) ' Example of iterating through all rows: For Each row As PMDG_NGX_CDU_Row In cdu0.Rows Dim rowText As String = row.ToString() ' do more work Next ' Example of iterating through all cells in a row: For Each cell As PMDG_NGX_CDU_Cell In row3.Cells Dim cellChar As Char = cell.Symbol ' do more work Next End Sub Let me know if you need any more help with this, or if there are any problems.

    I would hope the next version would bring us into the 21st century from an ADIRS/DBRITE/STRIP perspective. ASDE-X and comparables are a vast improvement overs ADIRS (and they appear to include all kinds of colors) :). The move is to digital strips and I think what we should have something that is much more flexible and sophisticated. The DBRITE is not as a big player in Tower, but for TRACON and ATCC I'm sure there's some modernization that can be implemented also. Agreed - that's why the ask has been made to allow for more than 2 controllers.

    @ Sky King and winsaudi, In order to prevent misunderstandings and unnecessary communication, it is not a question that Tower3D automatically colors the aircraft about arrival or departure, but that there is a possibility for novice controllers to give them a colored tag. Controllers who have more experience and do not find it realistic ... do not use it. Simple as that. If we are talking about being unrealistic ...... In the tower view you can see the lens flares in the morning and evening by a low sun. They are never perceptible with a human eye. Only by a camera. I also asked the developers for the lens flare as an option in the graphical setup. Because that is very unrealistic in the towerview. If someone loves that, give him/her the opportunity to select this in the graphic setup. They are all suggestions to think about to improve the fun of this game. Sorry, simulator Regards, Leo

    I agree. Simultaneously controlling departures & recoveries from 2 or more runways at a busy international airport, plus ground ground, ramp control and clearance delivery all at the same time would be unrealistic. ;)

    Are you using version 3 of the DLL with NuGet? If so, I'm adding support for the PMDG CDUs in the DLL. They are a bit complicated to use because of the way the the data is stored (3 bytes per character). The dll will simplify things and give you a nice .net array for the cells. I'll let you know when it's released (probably late tonight or tomorrow), but you'll need to be getting the dll from NuGet. Paul

    EGLL has an efficient layout, with its double perimeter taxiways. Actually, KJFK is similar in that regard, and you can get a very rough idea of how EGLL will play by closing the 22/4s at KJFK, and using the 13/31s, only allowing intersection takeoffs from 13R/31L to make the length comparable. It's not the same because the terminals are laid out differently, and the directions of the outer/inner perimeter taxiways are reversed, but it give you a general sense of the flow. Andrew

    Ah, yes. I remember that one now. Doesn't it also apply to the AXIS... SET controls? There's another way around it though. Just do it like this: 20=CP(+3,2)2,1,C65706,10 -{ELEVATOR_TRIM_SET}- 21=CP(+3,2)2,1,C65706,0 -{ELEVATOR_TRIM_SET}-22=CP(+3,2)2,3,C66731,10 -{AILERON_TRIM_SET}-23=CP(+3,2)2,3,C66731,0 -{AILERON_TRIM_SET}-25=CP(+3,2)2,5,C66732,10 -{RUDDER_TRIM_SET}- 26=CP(+3,2)2,5,C66732,0 -{RUDDER_TRIM_SET}- (or, of course, with other unique line numbers)

    On P3D there is a function for that (SimConnect_RequestGroundInfo, not compatible with FSX), new P3D API. For FSX I create a bogus AI object and query the position at its position (kind of hack but working). For the later I still search a way to create an invisible AI object https://www.fsdeveloper.com/forum/threads/invisible-or-very-small-ai-object.442575/

    Another thing to look forward too is the introduction of some new tech for scaling logos. Airline logos come in all shapes and sizes, some fit perfectly into STB while others (many others) have to be scaled to fit at run time. Going forward I hope to start providing logos in higher resolution, so if you want to increase the size of the logos on your STB you can do so without compromising display quality. As described above, many logos are scaled on demand to fit into the dimensions required by STB. The original way of doing this which I've used since day 1 in 2008 is quite rough. However in the next update I'll start using the latest technology for scaling images that produces much better results. Here's a "before" (left) and "after" (right). Before is the original rough way of scaling, and "after" is the new technology. The source image of British Airways and Air France is around 250x50 pixels, which get scaled down to 100x20 in STB. "After", is what you'll start seeing from the next update, is just way better!

    Happy New Year Controllers! I've been making custom Tower schedules since I was introduced to Tower!2011 so I thought I would finally release a Pro schedule for public consumption. This 24-hour schedule is for KJFK and is based on very busy pre-Christmas traffic. All flights included are real and were downloaded from FlightAware. Note: Some flight numbers were changed to avoid duplicate flight number issues. The full schedule includes 100+ more flights than Real Traffic including a morning exodus and the typical busy evening found at KJFK. The chart below illustrates the hour-by-hour arrivals and departures included in the schedule. I've also created a custom terminal file that should more accurately represent the gates and terminals used at KJFK during this time period. And as a bonus feature, I've included 16 snippet files - 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 and delayed due to "no free terminal". By reducing the number of hours in the schedule, you eliminate the dropped flights and get a richer more realistic flight volume experience. The table below shows a side by side comparison of the Tower!3D Pro gameplay flight volume using my full custom schedule file versus my snippet file. The example below is for a session start time of 06:00. Snippet wins! Attached to this post you'll find a zip file called kjfk_crbascott.zip that contains: Full custom schedule file - kjfk_schedule.txt GA schedule file - kjfk_gaandlocaltraffic.txt Charter reference file - kjfk_charter_airlines.txt Updated terminal file - kjfk_terminal.txt Updated airlines file (no more REDWOOD) - kjfk_airlines.txt Folders containing snippet schedule files for the hours 06 thru 21. I'd recommend unzipping kjfk_crbascott.zip into your KJFK folder. It will create a crbascott sub-folder with the above mentioned contents. As always, please remember to backup your original Real Traffic files. Feel free to contact me on this forum or Discord with questions, comments, and/or issues. ENJOY!!

    Don't forget I am getting that with P3D4.1, and I cannot see any possible reason for it. It is bazaar. But life is too short. I will abandon my own calculations and awat L-M's addition of FR as a proper variable like everything else. Pete

    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.
