    Konichiwa! I'm pleased to share with you the latest in my series of real traffic schedules: RJTT - Tokyo (Haneda) International As with my other schedules, you'll get to experience a week of air traffic around downtown Tokyo. You will see what the controllers saw. Tokyo International, commonly known as Haneda Airport, sits between downtown Tokyo and Tokyo Bay. In 2018, it handled just over 87 million passengers, making it the fourth-busiest airport in the world. When combined with Narita, Tokyo is the third-busiest city airport system in the world, after London and New York City. Haneda serves as the primary base for both JAL and ANA, as well as Air Do, Skymark, Solaseed, and StarFlyer. This airport is, by far, a passenger airport. While most air cargo for Tokyo comes into Narita, there is a daily ANA cargo flight that visits Haneda. GA traffic is also very rare here. As always, every effort has been made to use existing Real Color aircraft and liveries. There may be a few white aircraft, but, for the most part, you will find Tokyo to be a very colorful (and busy) place! Like with my previous offerings, you will find, within the main RJTT-battlehawk77-Autumn 2019 folder, a folder for each day of the week, along with snippet file folders within each day to allow you a smoother and more robust traffic feel. Also included is a listing of the GA operators, a PDF taxi chart, graphic and text files of the traffic levels for each day, and a text file within each day folder of the hourly traffic breakdown. It is recommended to place the RJTT-battlehawk77-Autumn 2019 folder in your main RJTT folder, then copy and paste the files needed (after you back up the originals, of course). It is also HIGHLY recommended to review the included Readme file, as it contains important operational information, along with where you need to put the included files for best results. If you have any questions, comments, or notice any bugs, please feel free to message me here or on Discord. Sutekina tsuitachi o! -Gavin (battlehawk77) RJTT-battlehawk77-Autumn 2019-v1.1.zip

    Howdy, y'all! I'm pleased to share with you the latest in my series of real traffic schedules: KDFW - Dallas- Fort Worth International. As with my other schedules, you'll get to experience a week of air traffic in northeast Texas. You will see what the controllers saw. They say everything is bigger in Texas, and this airport is no exception. In the first half of 2019, DFW was the 11th busiest airport in the world in terms of passengers, serving just over 36 million people in that six-month span. In the US, it is the second-largest airport by land area, behind Denver. Dallas has been a hub for American Airlines since 1981. It accounts for over 68% of the airport's passenger traffic. DFW also serves as a hub for Boutique Air, Ameriflight, and UPS, while Spirit and Sun Country each have it as a focus city. Along with the hefty amount of passenger traffic, there is also a largo amount of air cargo that come in daily, including FedEx, UPS, and Amazon's Prime Air, along with a small amount of GA traffic. As always, every effort has been made to use existing Real Color aircraft and liveries. There may be a few white aircraft, but, for the most part, you will find Dallas to be a colorful place! Like with my previous offerings, you will find, within the main KDFW-battlehawk77-Autumn 2019 folder, a folder for each day of the week, along with snippet file folders within each day to allow you a smoother and more robust traffic feel. Also included is a listing of the GA operators, a PDF taxi chart, graphic and text files of the traffic levels for each day, and a text file within each day folder of the hourly traffic breakdown. It is recommended to place the KDFW-battlehawk77-Autumn 2019 folder in your main KDFW folder, then copy and paste the files needed (after you back up the originals, of course). It is also HIGHLY recommended to review the included Readme file, as it contains important operational information, along with where you need to put the included files for best results. If you have any questions, comments, or notice any bugs, please feel free to message me here or on Discord. Y'all enjoy! -Gavin (battlehawk77) KDFW-battlehawk77-Autumn 2019-v1.11.zip

    Dear Users, thank you for your reports on the OMDB schedule. We found some problems in the schedules and we are working hard to release a service pack as soon as possible. Gabor

    There will no doubt be another release from John soon. He's not available today, but I worked on the problem this morning and found the bug. Turned out to be a relatively simple (read "stupid") error which only shows up when large numbers of AI controls are sent via FSUIPC. In fact this error has been there for as long as the facility has existed -- so FSUIPC4 as well as FSUIPC5. It just happened that the error only causes a crash with a certain memory arrangement which of course changes with each build. Pete

    Hey everyone, Hope you are all well. I'm not a professional painter by any means but I have tried to use the paint kits and made some repaints for BA Cityflyer and others. They are by no means perfect but will do until a professional painter creates some. I will be making some more repaints aswell and will put any notifications on this forum so keep checking back or let me know of any requests and I will try my best but please be aware I am in no way a professional painter so there will be parts that do not correctly line up!!! For current repaints see below for my dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/v4vix6aalhs8ew8/AAAc-3sMDBd2tNOYGjkXHut5a?dl=0 Merry Christmas and best regards, CptAnubis 🙂

    It might also be good if the end of session session summery included average times during the session for runway turnoff to gate and gate to t/o clearance. Give us some way to gauge our overall efficiency. Andrew

    Greetings all, I have updated the Master File with Vs.14 to reflect today's release of the long awaited KDFW Airport and associated RC. Lots of new ones in there to support the RT and @battlehawk77Custom schedules he was hot off the press with today and as always any issues please let me know to rectify/investigate. Not saying that this one has taken a while to test and get right but when we started this American Airlines were still flying the MD's in their fleet (they retired these over 3 months ago!) and they were in the original RT schedule for the airport and therefore in the RC Pack. As these are now obsolete the RT was subsequently amended to remove the A/C type from the schedule and replaced with the A/C type that replaced these flights for accuracy in today's release version. However, as the 3 types look really cool in the Silver AA livery (MD80, MD82 & MD83) they have been kept in the released RC Pack for KDFW for those that may want to create a retrospective schedule. Also note that when you update your RT file this also now includes the amended KRDU schedule that removes the GA and Duplicate Flight issues raised by @crbascottfollowing the release of the airport a few months ago. Enjoy Gary

    I have the Logitech G430 - has nice padding around the ears and top of the head. The microphone is adjustable and somewhat bendable. For multiplayer sessions I would have the game sounds come out of my TV speakers and use the headset to hear my controller partner via Discord. Using the game PTT and a Discord keybind, the mic was used for both the game and partner communication. I never had anyone complain regarding the mic volume so I assume it’s good. We won’t go into the complaints about my controlling skills though. 😂 The beauty of the PTT/Discord keybind setup is that it wouldn’t distract my partner when the PTT key was pressed and I was issuing commands. Only when the PTT was released would my partner be able to hear me. The headset also has a mute button that I could use if I needed to sneeze, say “yes dear” to my wife, or the more common use - cuss! 🤣 So, all in all, I’ve been happy with the G430.

    Hello Everyone TL;DR-version: Here is a schedule for LFPG, from 16 augustus 2019 : LFPG-ADR Consist of a complete day-schedule and 4-day snippets starting every 2 hours, except the nightshift that lasts 8 hours. You have to have RealTraffic installed of course, just copy the 4 txt-files into your LFPG-folder, for the snippets, use the appropriate lfpg_schedule.txt Some remarks for the designers: In the airlines file, Air Next has the code 7A. Air Next ceased operations, and code 7A went to Tunisia Cargo ; XRC, 7A, TUNISIA CARGO, Express Air Cargo, Tunis In the airlines file, JAT Airways has been rebranded to AirSERBIA ; ASL, JU, AIR SERBIA, , AirSERBIA, Serbia In the airlines file, Air Chatham has the wrong code, it should be 3C not CV ; CVA, 3C, CHATHAM, Air Chathams, New Zealand In the airport file, Setif has the wrong code, it should be QSF ; QSF AIN_ARNAT_AIRPORT_SETIF_ALGERIA 36.10 N 5.19 E DAAS In the GA-file, there is an Air France Plane I couldn't find two planes in the planes list; the new A359-1000 and the E175S There are some bugs, most noticeable taxiway 1S, but that needs a bug report. Very nice Airport to play, the French really love numbering every street.... Question: is the RT-schedule the following planes look for Terminals in the game? I noticed that planes will first goto Terminal 2, not Terminal 1, but still prefer to goto 2A before 2J when I changed those around in the terminal-file. I Guess the priority is hardcoded in the game, not in the file. //END REMARKS I am crazy, so I give you this: RED= Heavies // WHITE= Normal Jets // GREEN= Small jets/props I would have loved that 1remoteS would have been after the rest of Terminal 1, so I could use it as overflow, same for padH, would loved to have used that as overflow for padQ. But it seems the game has another priority. pad G is the GA-pad, although I also let GA go to cargoI, in case of bigger planes Terminal 2J is mostly useless, It used to be the terminal for Joon, HOP and Luxair. But Joon and Airhop now use AFR flightnumbers, JOON being completely absorbed. I still use HOP in my schedule. But there are almost no small planes HOP uses into CDG, mostly E190. Most of the Terminal will not be used beacuse of that. I Noticed that when planes go to their Terminal, they first look if a spot is available for their size (e.g. a 737 going to Terminal 2K will first look if gates 7,11 and 17 is available before going to the lowest available gate) If a plane needs to go to a Terminal where all gates (available or occupied) are to small, it will randomly go somewhere (e.g. an Airbus 388 with padG as Terminal, will randomly spawn somewhere on a Heavy Gate, but if has 2B, and the two Heavy gates are occupied, it will not spawn, no available terminal) I designated ASL Airlines France as a Cargo-Airline, they have some passengers flights, but most of them seem to be cargo. Also, this day seemed to be Cargo-light. I didn't changed the GA-file (you can delete the AlphaFoxtrotRomeo flight yourself) As for the airport itself, Taxiway Sierra-1 seems to be not working, and getting planes from 08R to use taxiway ECHO is also problematic I suggest to let them hold short of TANGO, after which they will see ECHO 😛 ) At the Moment, Terminal 1U, and adjacent gates of 1T and 1V are not used, I think 1U is actually being rebuild? Also 2B is out of use. I still used them in my schedule, because I would have had a problem with all the AFR-flights TIP: if you play this, use 09R/27L for all flights that go to North European (start with an E, like EHAM), the Americas, East Europe (starts with U) and far east destinations. Have fun

    For sure the airplanes will be remodeled from scratch. Currently, we are running tests how many polygons can we squeeze with LOD without major fps loss. We plan to add the following animations: -flaps -gears -reversers -PAX doors -cargo doors In T!3D we use 2 pieces of 512x512 textures per plane. The new planes will receive 5 pieces of 2K textures and PBR. I think this will be the first thing that I can preview for you. What I saw is amazing already. Thank you Vic

    Version 9 is now uploaded 😊 This now includes the RC from the recently released LPFG (Paris CDG) and updated EDDM (Munich) RC, which should be out any day now to coincide with the SP on EDDM, kindly done FOC by Gabor @nyergesdesign. Just update your original link for EDDM to get this. I am sure @hexzed (Ben) will be running a new poll soon for the next one once he gets the OK from Gabor. Hopefully this will be one of the US Airports so we can get some of the updated liveries in the game, Southwest, Sun Country and Air Wisconsin for example. Some exciting additions to these releases, notably the introduction of the 787-1000 (B78x) in the LPFG RC in the Air France and United Airlines livery and the B789 in the new WestJet livery. Etihad liveries have also had a makeover to the new design. Also, for the first time, Gabor has found a solution to the bug bear of all Cargo fans in that they now appear without the dreaded passenger windows. There are too many to list so just click on the “Non Window Freighter Version” drop down in the comments field in the Full RC List tab. The bad news for all the custom schedulers is that they now need to update all their schedules to reflect the model changes! ☹ The EDDM RC update included pretty much all the forum requests consolidated by Ben and this also includes some more NEO models which include: A20N_km Air Malta A20N_ib Iberia Airlines A20N_lh Lufthansa German Airlines A20N_pc Pegasus Airlines A20N_sk SAS Scandinavian Airlines A21N_tp TAP Air Portugal A20N_u2 easyJet A21N_u2 easyJet As always, a reminder, PM me with any errors or admissions you spot or comments for future releases and don’t forget to download the latest updated Real Traffic version to take advantage of these models. The 738 Max (B78M) light issue reported by @alaskaGuy2018should be fixed in the RT update as well. Happy controlling G

    Just made a video, excuse any quality. Operational errors or any other thing. I haven't done any recording in a very long time so things might not be good quality. Also, there might be a ton of operational errors made, but this is just how I handle it. I wished to record some of my gripes with the airfield too, but didn't get a chance to record some. (there are some at the end). Here's the URL to the video, it's still in processing at time of posting. https://youtu.be/FAoh0aQhSNg

    The full stops and any other separators are there to differentiate between the passenger and cargo versions of the airline as well as between the different regionals. I initially changed the ICAO, but due to possible double ups I have been trying this instead. The reason for this is so that the cargo airlines go to the cargo terminal, and the passenger airlines go to their correct terminal. In turn the same for any regionals, eg Republic Airlines operating for American will go to terminal 8, Republic airlines operating for Delta will go to terminal 2, etc Hope this explains everything 🙂

    Really enjoying the schedule so far! So neat to be able to play my home airport at the same time as I can watch the actual flights come in on FlightRadar. Thanks for the hard work!

    Word on the street is that a week's worth of JFK schedules (like the ones already available for Barcelona, Orlando, and Gatwick) will be developed after testing is completed on Boston schedules. 😉 Something to consider. 🙂

    @Kim @EliGrim Look up in the KBOS airplane file whether you have the CS3 (BCS3) aircraft in the list. Copying it in from another airport's aircraft file did the trick for me.

    Nope, definitely not via the game engine. The recorded loop indicates it was done using an overlay or some other software. Cool visual effect if you're into that, but if he can get the snow to stick to the ground I'll really be impressed. 😀

    I've listened to LAX Tower on LiveATC quite extensively. If a controller needs to change an instruction, the phraseology I've heard consistently is: "Callsign, taxi via Hotel Papa, hold short of Runway 25R" "Callsign, amend instruction, taxi via Hotel Tango, Hold short of Runway 25R." Taxiway Papa was recently renamed to Taxiway Juliet so you won't actually hear Taxiway Papa anymore...just saying that they use "amend instruction" in the real world.

    Hi, all your assignments and controls are stored in your FSUIPC5.ini file (in your modules folder). Take a look at that file. The format of the entries is described in the FSUIPC5 manuals. Comments are added automatically so that you can see what your assignments are. If you are using the 'profiles in separate files' feature, then you will also have an ini file for each profile. If you are going to edit it, make sure you take a copy/backup first. Cheers, John

    Hi Flew the same scenario as Ray, from stock egll to stock eham, no add ons except Aerosoft 319, AIM OCI (100%) and RC4. Crashed on approach to eham, approximately 40mins flying time. No problems taxiing, or take off. Hope that’s of some help Regards Q

    Hi Ray, you can try this version (v5.5151b): FSUIPC5.txt (its the dll - download & rename to FSUIPC5.dll). I've added the total ground AI at offset 02A2, and airborne AI at offset 02A4, both 16-bit (U16). No filter by airport I'm afraid. You can get the distance from you in the readable offsets previously mentioned, but only the first 96 each of airborne/ground. Cheers, John

    If you're brand new it can seem a little hectic. But its not too bad. Do it a few times and things will be smoother. Also you don't have to get fancy with lengthy commands and adjustments for routing etc. Start simple and grow from there :) Also if you watch any of my vids you see I am far from great at this lol. TIST is fun because of one runway making things difficult but I love a well laid out airport with tons of traffic. I believe I have played both of the TIST schedules but cant recall the other one, Hexzed's I played a few times recently and it was good fun!

    Not sure if it useful but these are the layouts for the "icao_schedule.txt" and "icao_gaandlocaltraffic.txt": Never understood why the layout was chosen this way personally. A lot of inconsistency and illogical coding in place. i.e. The use of iata and icao codes - why not just stick with one across the board ... and ... arranging the arrival and departure times the opposite of the airport codes.

    What would really help would be the use of "expedite" for getting slow-taxiing planes off the runway in time for the following plane's safe touchdown....! ...or some speed control for planes on approach? Still good fun though!

    If you added a new plane to the airplane file, then all you'll get is a generic white aircraft. The airlines files is pretty much the same for all airports, with some exceptions. Having extra airlines in there doesn't hurt anything. PS - You and @shyguyseattle should get together. You seem to be like twins separated at birth.
