    Alright guys. Mission accomplished. I have posted the schedule and have PMed Pete_agreatguy to add it to his list. Thank you all for your help through the entire creation of this schedule. Have a great rest of your year and I hope to get working on my next schedule soon. COVID 19 Density KDFW CUSTOM Schedule - ATC Simulators - The simFlight Network Forums

    Hello, so I decided to make a schedule for KDFW mimicking the traffic density during the COVID -19 Pandemic. This schedule is very light in the way of density with the most departures per hour being around 35. This is recommended for the beginner to the game or airport, or someone wanting really easy, casual, and slow gameplay. The project was started in April and I ended up taking a break in the summer but due to more time on my hands I finally finished it. I could not have made this schedule without the help of these amazing community members: Controller- Rouge, hexzed, 707FAN, bartccost, EliGrim, and crbascott. I would have been lost without them and their incredible help is what helped this project keep going. This was also a great easy schedule for me to start on and hopefully they should be better in the future. Thank you. kdfw_schedule.txt

    Will adding just one or two flights really make someone want to play those hours? I say stick to your principles and to the main point of the schedule.

    Well, credit given where credit is due Vic. We talked at length months ago about opening up the development process a bit more, and I think you have given the idea a chance. This is great progress in my opinion. My hope is that it helps the second version of Tower3D launch much closer to software entertainment that everyone is excited about and anxious to play. Look, at 56 I am more of a realist each and every day. Some aspects of ATC will not be included for various reasons, many of which people like myself don't understand. I am OK with that and am just glad we built a bridge between the community and you and your team. Here is to a better release and continued development. Cheers!

    This may be so, but FSUIPC4, the version for FSX was produced in 2006 and one payment gave users free updates and support ever since then. It was only frozen to future development last year. FSUIPC7 for MSFS has more in common with FSUIPC5 and FSUIPC6, the 64-bit versions, which themselves were a great deal of work, and the difficulties of the version of SimConnect implemented in MSFS made FSUIPC7 even more. I'm really more surprised that John has offered a discount at all. Not only that but the main price is substantially less than I expected (compare to previous version prices). On top of this, the facilities offered so far by the MSFS version of SimConnect fall well short of what was provided in FSX, let alone P3D, but because MS/Asobo seem to have pledged ongoing development (unlike FSX which died in development terms within 18 months) there will be continuous ongoing development too of FSUIPC7. Would you rather a discount on initial cost but an ongoing payment for updates? It isn't our policy to do such things. For the initial payment you automatically get the ongoing improvements and facilities. If you don't need or want to use the user facilities offered by FSUIPC then there's no need for you to pay for it in any case. Evidently you and the previous poster don't actually want or need to use those facilities, so you wouldn't buy it in any case. There's no need to post complaints. Pete

    It could be that this issue is created by an old bug relating to the total number of connections used by simconnect clients - this is an old issue known in FSX and has been confirmed over at FSDeveloper. ( Discussion, An improvement in the same thread). To check if this is the cause, you could try modifying the maximum number of clients (MaxClients) in the SimConnect.xml file. You could first try reducing this to see if you can provoke this issue to occur earlier, and if this works then you can set to the maximum value which seems to be 255. John

    I'm sure they won't release this kind of proprietary sales information. I don't blame them.

    @FeelThere Vic, thanks for the opportunity for input. In the wishlist topic I have already provided two posts with fairly detailed thoughts, a conceptual design, and examples. Among other things the main thoughts are to be able to differentiate cargo/commercial flights, implement regional carriers with multiple liveries, allow for special liveries, and expand terminal assignments to the gate level. My posts don't address domestic/international assignments but I would very much like to see this incorporated. Thanks!

    No no, it is actually done for a reason, which to be honest I cannot fully remember, but if you look at the specific settings of the flaps its actually quite interesting to see, that Flaps 4 and 5 are exactly the same - still they are seperated not only but a regular flap detent on the selector, but even a guard, over which you have to lift the flaps selector. Flaps 0 = Slats 0° & Flaps 0° Flaps 1 = Slats 15° & Flaps 7° Flaps 2 = Slats 15° & Flaps 10° Flaps 3 = Slats 15° & Flaps 20° Flaps 4 = Slats 25° & Flaps 20° Flaps 5 = Slats 25° & Flaps 20° Flaps FULL = Slats 25° & Flaps 37°

    This is also where offset conditions can help. With an offset condition, the offset (in this case, a bit in an offset) would be checked and if the condition matches (i.e. on or off) then the control is sent, if not the control is not sent. Doing this will automatically sync your switch with the VC panel switch after the first change, if not already synced.

    In your opening post you said you had a RTX2060 Super but later you posted that you have a RTX2080 Super. Is there a typo or have you changed your graphics card? It's significant because there is a big difference in performance and you are running a lot of addons. You say things are perfect when you don't move the controls, but the delay in rendering the external view during the takeoff run in your video was for the entire 8 seconds that view was selected. This is not normal. Your fps were around 21, but something in your system is restricting graphics performance. As a comparison, my own setup has 2 outside view screens running from a GTX 1080ti and to render an external view takes about 1 second. I use the E195 v3 exclusively. In my post on November 20 I suggested monitoring your CPU and GPU workloads and temperatures when the fps drops are occurring. This could help to show what is happening.

    What @hexzed means is that the times are in the column for arrivals and not departures. You tell the game from line 411 to line 572 that all departures should start at 12:00. Over 160 flights within one minute is a bit exaggerated! 😉

    You can start typing, just the initial part, and the list moves to the first control starting like that. I never have trouble that way. What exactly do you have in mind? Pete

    Hi John, I'm starting to understand how FSUIPC7 works with Linda and VRI MCP Combi. For those who use MCP Combi with FS2020 & A320neo, binding these Functions to the three Knobs and to three Buttons can simulate Push & Pull function Engage_Managed_Speed_Mode () -- PUSH SPEED KNOB ipc.control("68066", 2) end function Engage_Selected_Air_Speed_Mode () -- PULL SPEED KNOB ipc.control("68066", 1) end function Engage_Managed_Altitude_Mode () -- PUSH ALT KNOB ipc.control("68067", 2) end function Engage_Selected_Altitude_Mode () -- PULL ALT KNOB ipc.control("68067", 1) end function Engage_Managed_Heading_Mode () -- PUSH HDG KNOB ipc.control("68065", 2) end function Engage_Selected_Heading_Mode () -- PULL HDG KNOB ipc.control("68065", 1) end

    I think the FSLabs Axxx series of aircraft have re-purposed the rotor brake control with various parameters for different functions. There is plenty of information on how to use these aircraft with FSUIPC over on the fslabs forums.

    Ah, I think the "functionality" you can check is just that it connects to MSFS okay, that the Logging works, and that the interface for FSUIPC applications (its main purpose, after all) is all working okay. Those things are free in any case. Maybe the wording on the sales page could be clearer. Pete

    I noticed that the newest version for the master list says that united has the new livery on the 787-8, and I just checked by playing the airport and the United 787-8 still has the old yellow gold looking livery in the game Tower 3D Pro. and was just wondering if u have ran into this problem with the release of KIAD

    Dear Folks, This IS the time 🙂 During the Tower!XX wishlist we received so many requests for changing the schedule editor. Currently we are thinking about something like this: type/callsign/subcolor It means you could set the type, the airline who flies it and a special livery. Would it be OK? Would it be useful for the regional airlines flying for many airlines? The subcolor could be a cargo livery as well. Please note the callsign would remain the same but you could add any number of liveries this way under the same airline. When you set up the terminal instead of assigning an airline you could assign any livery into any terminal (so you could create for example international or domestic "liveries" by copy paste and send them to domestic, international or cargo terminals) Please give us your input, this is the time when we can make changes. Please get your answer short and clean and with some examples. Thank you Vic

    John, I have seen this for years even in apps that I write. The only thing I can suggest, which you may already be doing, is to check the window state before saving the window coordinates and if is is minimized to the tray don't save the position. The other thing I have tried is to get the combined screen size at app startup and if my window position is not within those boundaries I reset the position to 0,0 or 100,100 or similar. Seems to be a Windows issue that's been around a long time. Just my 2c. James

    John, Thank you for your tip to decrease the flight control response. It made MSFS flyable for me. I presume msfs was made with new controllers in mind, e.g. the honeycomb has a 180 degree control turn. However, a lot of controllers, e.g. saitek have only 90 degrees. Thank you, your tip and program have saved my flying!! Gert57

    Please try the attached simple lua script. Save it in your FSUIPC7 installation folder, then open your FSUIPC7.ini and add the following to the [Auto] section: 1=Lua tbmLights (change the '1' to the next free number if you have other lua's auto started). This only controls the TBM 3-way lights toggle. You can add further controls and/or keypresses for your other actions as you wish, or set those up via the UI assignments panel. Let me know how it goes. tbmLights.lua This just adds a 600ms delay between sending the landing lights toggle and sending the taxi lights toggle (on your button 12 release), which seems to do the trick. I'll look into allowing you to specify a delay for button and key assignments made via the UI.

    First off, this is not a request for support, it's simply a HELLO and a thank you! It feels great to be BACK in here after years of being 'on the dark side' in XP11 and without FSUIPC. I gave up on Microsoft sims some years ago when I defected to XPlane, but now I have FS2020 installed and can once again return to my trusty companion that is FSUIPC, and have it do all things properly:-) I nearly fell off my chair when told I could buy this again for FS2020:-) Pete Sir, you have been around for as long as I can remember. You and I probably don't like to remember just how many years that is:-) Returning to FSUIPC is like 'coming home' for me, and even better to see John's name there also! GREAT to be back! And thanks to ALL concerned in keeping this truly GREAT product alive and kicking.

    Hi, I got this fixed. Turns out that has been my fault all along. DOH!!!! I used the Microsoft speech engine speech dictionary to add words to help with recognition thinking (stupidly) that it would help with the computer better understanding what I was trying to say when using London Control ATC Sim. The readback didn't affect LC as it uses a different system for pilot comms. These were mostly airlines and sector names with a few numbers. After going demented trying to find a solution and many, many uninstall/reinstalls I came across by chance a post on a website, on an unrelated issue, that suggested to someone that the entries in speech dictionary might be an issue. I deleted all the words I had inputted and now everything works. Did not think the TTS engine would be using words I put in and confuse itself. Completely threw me as it wasn't happening with Tower3D. Moral of the story: Don't dabble in the unknown. Useful if somebody else has similar issues. Redwood Three Seven One. WHOOHOO! Thanks and sorry.

    It isn't a control, but a Hot Key, configurable on the FSUIPC Hot Keys tab in its Options. Are you saying that doesn't work in FSUIPC6? Pete

    Yes, of course. But as I said, the batch files (and shortcut) are only there as a convenience, you don't have to use them, and you can adjust them to your needs (i.e. remove message or splash screen). For all other flight sims, FSUIPC was an embedded dll and so always closed with the FS.

    I think that would be unreasonable. There is no point for that and imagine a worldwide traffic where you need to add all reg codes. Thank you Vic

    Hello, I have been creating schedules since I purchased the game. Mostly I try to do real schedules, but in the "new world" we're in, there just isn't enough air traffic. I decided to create a fictional schedule for EKCH and make the airport more challenging. (Giving credit where it is due) I started with Eli Grim's schedule maker creating the base and then started editing. I edited: city pairs, airlines, flight numbers, and times. I wanted it to not only be challenging but also have a good variety of airlines and aircraft. I own quite a few of the RC packs, including the RETRO pack, so you will see some of those airlines / aircraft included as well. Airlines and aircraft in this schedule come from various RC packs, not just EKCH. You will see airlines that do not normally fly into EKCH throughout this schedule. Part of the challenge I wanted was to have more arrivals than could be handled in an hour on 1 runway (especially with a variety of jet and prop aircraft). I leave the challenge to you to decide the best course of action to handle the traffic! Remember to backup all your original files before overwriting any. I did edit some airlines to be more phonetically friendly (example: changed ABEX AIR to AIRBORNE) . But feel free to use your own airlines file if needed. I also included "power hour" files for each hour as I feel you get a better experience using those snippets instead of a full schedule. I hope you enjoy this schedule as I am going to create one for PHNL next. Let me know if you find any errors or have any suggestions. Thanks! ~Erick OneNothing Custom EKCH v1.0.7z

    I'll need to let John investigate why the installer identified your install as a Steam one rather than MS-Store, but meanwhile, with my MS-store version the BAT file it generated contains this: :: MS Store Installation: start MSFS with FastLaunch cmd.exe /C start shell:AppsFolder\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App -FastLaunch Maybe something similar will work for you?

    Paul/John, just want to offer my remarks on the pricing... I've ALWAYS thought the pricing is actually insane! Pay once, get improvements/updates for ever - MADNESS I SAY?!?!?! You have always provided such excellent and highly responsive support for the product(s) over the years and it is an absolute necessity for most serious simmers. Having to simply pay once for each platform version - and with discounts for newer platforms into the bargain - I think you are one of the best and truly most important, add-ons we have. I'm off to purchase the MSFS version, having been beta testing as soon as it was available, even though I personally won't use it much myself for a long while. I maintain/buy/support all the versions of FSUIPC as I am responsible for the BAVirtual ACARS tool, and even though mostly MSFS isn't quite ready for prime-time virtual airline flying, I have to be sure the ACARS tool works for the members that use it. It does and for that I'm grateful. Seems such a small price ANYWAY for something that improves the sim experience so much. Keep up the amazing work and kudos to you both for being so on top of this new product even with its almost non-existant and fluid SDK.

    I second that! Gate level seems like a must for most on the wishlist. I know not every item on the list will be used but Gate level not being added in would be a big let down especially since it sounds like ideas are trying to be implemented.

    @FeelThere the proposed approach seems simple (possibly not the most efficient and clean design) but to directly answer your question I think it should allow us to: ~ eliminate the need of bogus IATA/ICAO codes ~ differentiate cargo/commercial ~ implement regional carriers and multiple liveries ~ allow for special liveries ~ distinguish domestic/international flights for parking purposes. That checks most boxes for me. However, hopefully the terminal file will be much more granular (gate level is a MUST have item for me) than the example you provided.

    Hi Chris, no, you are not alone. The time-limited license previously provided expired on the 31st October. You need to download the latest installer and re-install, as this includes an updated time-limited license valid until 8th November. John
