    All advanced users were once new, so i hope they wouldn't scoff. Anything that helps out other users is fine in my book 🙂

    Yes, that's certainly possible. What I should be doing is using the Windows "Send to Compressed Folder" option as that creates a universal zip. I like 7z but that's just a personal preference, so I'll switch back to regular zips now. Thanks for pointing this out Simon

    I have been using Tower3d Pro for 2 weeks. I have purchased six DLC airports. Love the SIM. Like so many, I don't like using the Left Shift button for Push To Talk (PTT). I looked at Keyboard Macros, registry hacks, etc. I have a background in electronics, so I went hardware. I took an old (NEW) Wired USB Keyboard apart. They use an XY matrix to push contacts for each key. The module that runs the keyboard is about 1"x2". It has 16 contacts (8 x 12). I was able to find out which pads operate each key. With some experimenting I found the Shift Key. So plugging in the "SECOND" USB Keyboard, I hooked some wires to the contacts, and "IT WORKS". You can probably use any old keyboard. Each will have some type of contacts. So I plan to make an actual PTT BUTTON like controllers use. In addition, I could hook up a foot pedal as an alternative. I was going to hack an Arduino for a HID (Human Interface Device). There are quite a few articles on how to do this.. I work for an I.T. company, and we have dozens of space keyboards. Our local Microcenter sells cheap keyboards for about $4.00. Just thought if anyone wanted to try this, they can. I am sure now I figured this out, FT will probably include an alternate Key on the next release. Oh Well Just want to contribute to the community that brings me so much joy. Sorry for the lousy job, but this was a "PROOF OF CONCEPT". I will clean it up and post a better picture. Maybe I'm taking this hobby a little to serious. But I love it!!!

    With "Cache" I just wanted to make sure that not only the Temp folder is meant. Also the temp files belong to the cached files. Hence the confusion. Please note: Whatever you do, you do it at your own risk. To delete the files after uninstalling the DLCs (via uninstaller or the DLC option in the Steam Client for the Steam version), you can use a software like CCleaner or WashAndGo (or an alternative, personally I'm not a fan of both programs), or you can delete the files yourself. To do this I would first delete the contents of the Temp folder (Windows-Logo + R, %temp%, OK). Afterwards the prefetch files (Windows-Logo + R, prefetch, OK), but here only the files that are related to Tower!3D by their name. Finally, I would perform a disk cleanup (Windows-Logo + R, cleanmgr, OK) and make sure that the DirectX Shadercache is deleted if the option is available. Now I would reboot the PC and reinstall the desired airport DLC, then Real Color and then the latest version of Real Traffic. If that doesn't help you would have to go a bit deeper. But you have to find out for yourself. I want to avoid, that e.g. a faulty translation or a lack of knowledge on my part causes damage to your PC.

    I am fairly new to Tower3d PRO - I have been reading the forums. I pulled data from the tower3d.rec file, and put it in a chart. The advanced users will scoff, but I needed a guide so I could find all the commands that are recognized. Hopefully it will help newbees like me. I wanted to know how to "Vacate Runway". If this list exists somewhere else, please let me know. Great Simulation - First and Best Voice Command SIM I have ever used. I have Tower3d Pro and am on 6 DLC Airports Tower_Voice_CMDS.txt

    You should always use offsets if you can. Reading LVars is very slow compared to using offsets. Only use LVars as a last resort, when there are no offsets or controls (events). I think you can control the door using the PMDG custom controls (events). Send events using FSUIPCConnection.SendControlToFS(). There is an enum for the PMDG controls to make this easy. I think this might work: FSUIPCConnection.SendControlToFS(PMDG_737_NGX_Control.EVT_DOOR_FWD_L, 1); I'm not sure of the parameter though (I don't use PMDG). It might be 1 = open, 0 = Closed. Or the parameter maybe ignored and the door just toggles whenever you send the control. You can test this out for yourself. The enum PMDG_737_MGX_Control contains the other door commands which you will see on the popup when you type the "." after it. I can't see any way to do this. If the PMDG aircraft loads a flight plan into the FlightSim you might be able to get the destination airport from offset 0x6137. Declare as a string of length 5. Paul

    The guidance panel on the E175 E195 is very hard to see and use, unless you zoom it in. most all flight sim aircraft either have a pop up under vehicle instrument panel or a right mouse click on instrument to open it up then undock the instrument to move it around. my hope is Feelthere will consider and make the guidance panel more user friendly.

    I wonder? Has anybody heard? What's the hold up? Those mysterious questions in life that never get answered, but are asked repeatedly ... especially on this forum. 😂

    Hi, I am a person who just downloaded and bought DFW airport for my steam version of Tower 3d Pro from Feelthere.com the airport was obtained through some minor technical difficulty that I later got solved. But I bought real color for DFW and it didn't work. no matter how hard I tried it just didn't work. I have bought the item 3 times now thinking it will fix it twice from feelthere.com and once from ATCsuite.com. I don't know what the problem is and how to fix it. Any help will be welcome Thanks -Propilot
