  1. Apparently the oft-discussed and not so secret mods made by @WildCardare now publicly available. From what I gather, all one has to do is private message @WildCard on this very support forum. Based on this, I would have to assume that @FeelThere_Vic fully supports the mods and distribution channel/mechanism. Not sure if there will be support topics for bug reports, enhancements, new features documentation, etc. We'll see. Exciting times!

  3. Yes a bit remiss of me to download and not say thanks. Works well with some nice peaks and troughs, well done.

  6. I am nearly finished a full schedule for Friday 05 July 2019 As above, some flights commence at KLAX, and that will resolve your 99% issue The program then usually commences about 10 minutes before the start time you selected, which allows you to build up a departures stack (if appropriate for the time selected) I found in the original Real Traffic schedule that there were two warnings NO FREE TERMINAL Usually means the program has not included a flight as all the stands are in use However the flight may be included later I would be more concerned by DROPPED, as the incoming flight will not be included As an aside for American / Terminal 4 / Terminal 5 In the original program (terminal) files there are not enough stands I assume you have created a spreadsheet to ensure there is 30 minutes between flights on a stand, by aircraft type You can then also use the spreadsheet to inspect for duplicate flights, the original Real Traffic schedule had two!

  8. This is an old version of my tower3d.rec file. The game hasn't been able to handle commas in the commands since v3.0 (end of 2017) Try EliGrim's updated one at

  9. No need for an apology Vic. We know it's hard to keep track of all us knuckleheads. 😁

  10. I got around the takeoff trim problem in my home cockpit by a small change to the aircraft config file, which I had previously posted on this forum (see copy text below). I have not experienced the trim switch issue because I used FSUIPC to assign the standard trim up/trim down commands to my yoke trim switch, which gives me realistic operation. ------------------------------------------------------ I use the E195 exclusively and have spent a lot of time playing with config settings for a better rotation. The two issues for me were the reluctance to unstick at Vr, requiring too much positive trim to achieve rotation, followed by excess pitch up once airborne as result of higher trim setting. Recently I tried a different approach, looking at the contact points. I reasoned that moving the contact points for the mainwheels forward might help. Bingo! In the aircraft config the standard settings are point.1 = 1, -9.0, -9.0, -11.75, 2300.0, etc. point.2 = 1, -9.0, 9.0, -11.75, 2300.0,etc. My modified settings are point.1 = 1, -7.0, -9.0, -11.75, 2300.0, etc. point.2 = 1, -7.0, 9.0, -11.75, 2300.0, etc. This change has no effect on visual appearance. It simply makes the aircraft more willing to rotate at more realistic (lower) trim settings. Where previously it required up to +5.0, I was able to reduce takeoff trim to +2.0 with a smoother rotation and better transition to climbout. I have not found any adverse effects from this change. Usual disclaimer - make a backup of config before editing. Once off the ground the contact points have no effect on flight dynamics, but the lower trim setting avoids the excessive nose up pitch change after lift off. Landing characteristics are unchanged, but it seems to have a slight benefit of allowing the nosewheel to be lowered more slowly. ------------------------------------------------------------ I always suggest making a copy of the original config file as a fallback before making changes.

  11. I now realise why there were so many posts about KLAX and some of the issues I had not visually noticed that some of the B747 that were using Terminal TBIT, were actually Cargo aircraft! Hence why there were so many questions Ironically, later Real Colour packs have corrected this However some still appear to be missing for use with KLAX (hopefully I have time to submit these to Pack 1 update) as they use the same ICAO code As a result the allocations to TBIT were excessive, but splitting and removing the cargo (to use Terminal GA) has resolved some of the issue Sadly as is common with many international aircraft diagrams, there are long layovers which result in a tow to and then from a remote stand I also have several airlines that have a Real Colour for KLAX, but there are no flights within the Real Traffic file Such as Aer Lingus (EI) and Norwegian Airlines (DI) I have not been able to figure out why I have then moved on to Terminal 1, which is predominantly SouthWest Airlines (Real Colour also allows for Air Canada Rouge and VivaAerobus) I noticed very early on three duplicate flights and two more that made no sense Again, some of these flights would block the stand Thankfully there is a great source in the USA (bts.gov) that provides very detailed arrival and departure information, it is shame the UK does not have something similar Sadly the flights are listed by registration, no details of aircraft type, but this is easily resolved However with a little time and cross referencing to the Real Colour Master List this was resolved Again, due to stand blocking some flights had to be removed, but it was far less than the original Real Traffic file As as aside, I swapped to Friday 05 July 2019 / Saturday 06 July 2019 Data before 2018 was patchy, so I went for Summer 2019
