    I've had a virtual meeting with the associated virtual parties that are affected, and we have come to the decision that since we are such short staffed at LAX that only 1 controller is responsible for tower and ground operations, normal departure sequencing can be "tossed out the window" for the foreseeable future 😁

    I also think this is a great idea, thank you @winsaudi. This way, we can make Real Colors more flexible and it will be more beneficial for the Community. We can try it out wuth the next airport. I will send the new airport's Real Color list here, then you can make your wishlist. I would like to maximise the number of new liveries to 10. The deadline would be one week for making the list. I hope this system is acceptable for everyone here. Gabor

    Yep, moved to the area about 10 years ago and this is what got me hooked into aviation. It first started with - I wonder where those planes are coming from? So, I stumbled across the amazing FlightAware and FlightRadar24. The first step into making this a hobby was buying camera equipment and plane-spotting at Founders Plaza at DFW airport (which I highly recommend) where they broadcast air traffic control communication between the tower and pilots. This naturally led me onto the awesome LiveATC which eventually morphed into an interest in commercial airplane travel logistics. So, onto the next step. I was "slightly" over 30 so that meant a career change was out of the question, as a result I did the next best thing. This is when I bought Tower!2011 (25 total airports) and later Tracon!2012 (7 total sectors including 1 self-created). I stubbornly did not make the Tower!3D plunge until the release of Pro ... had to have voice. It was tough to wait, but I'm glad I did. In the quest for more realism I became interested in multiplayer, so I selfishly created the Tower_MP Discord server to hopefully make this happen. Little did I know that this would become a vehicle to play the sim with people all over the world. Mind blown! And now we are on the brink of the next version of Tower ... a version that will take the franchise to the next level. I'm at my station, with headset on, and ready for my shift. Let's do this @FeelThere! 🙂

This would minimise the likelihood of white planes turning up in custom schedules that the cleaver people in this forum put together for our use and for those of us that put together our own schedules but are not brave enough to publish!. I know that there are probably a number of these lists floating about in various forms but I have put together the attached PDF files in what I hope is a more professional looking format, giving an overall consolidated view by regions of the world in an easy to read format that I hope will be of use to some of you. I have produced this with the permission of Vic (FeelThere) and Gabor (Nyergesdesign). Special thanks to @VenturaGuy101 who sent me the original list which inspired me to produce my own version of this and also @crbascottwho sent me his file to cross reference to hopefully ensure this is as accurate as possible. Also thanks to Gabor at @nyergesdesignwho provided some of the information I was missing. There are 2 files, one of which is in a printable A4 format for the UK, European & ANZAC controllers on the forum and the other one is in Letter format for controllers based in the US who may wish print and use this detail. The aim is to release updates to these files as and when new Real Color files are released by Gabor, either as updates or to correspond with new airports being developed. Also with the current Back to School sale a good reason to purchase some Real Color Airports to fill any gaps you have. I know I will be! Hopefully all is clear but please feel free to PM me with any questions or if there are any additions or errors that you spot for me to update.

    Hello again Controllers! At the beginning of the year, KJFK was my first public custom schedule release. Although it was received well I thought it was time to revisit New York and give it it's due by releasing 7 daily schedule. If that doesn't get you signing New York, New York I don't know what will! 🙂 As always, my schedules are real and based on downloaded information from FlightAware. To avoid duplicate flight number issues a few flight numbers were changed. The schedules are full of passenger, cargo, and a few GA flights - enough to get you controlling like Kennedy Steve. The chart below illustrates the day-by-day commercial and GA traffic included in the daily schedules. For those that enjoy higher traffic volumes, Sunday and Monday are obviously the busiest days with Wednesday and Saturday having their share of fun too. The busiest hour is Tuesday at 08:00 with 92 flights (mostly departures), the busiest hour with balanced arrivals and departures is Monday at 17:00. The most arrivals you'll see in an hour is 52 on Saturday at 14:00. Each daily schedule file has the hourly breakdown to help you choose the traffic volume that satisfies your pallet. And what is a standard feature for my custom schedules, I've included snippet files for each day - 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 because of gate availability and delayed due to "no free terminal". By reducing the number of hours in the schedule, you can eliminate the dropped flights and get a richer more realistic flight volume experience. Attached to bottom of this post you'll find a zip file called kjfk_crbascott7.zip that contains: Common files to be used for each of the 7 days: Updated terminal file - kjfk_terminal.txt Updated airlines file - kjfk_airlines.txt Updated airports file - kjfk_airports.txt Reference file for GA/charter airlines included in GA traffic - kjfk_charter_airlines.txt 7 folders containing the daily schedule files (05-Sunday, 06-Monday, 07-Tuesday, 08-Wednesday, 09-Thursday, 10-Friday, 11-Saturday). Within each folder you will find: Full custom schedule file for that day - kjfk_schedule.txt Full GA traffic file for that day - kjfk_gaandlocaltraffic.txt Folders containing snippet schedule files (commercial only) for the hours 06 thru 22. I'd recommend unzipping kjfk_crbascott7.zip into your KJFK folder. It will create a crbascott7 sub-folder (to differentiate it from my earlier KJFK release) with the above mentioned contents. As always, please remember to backup your original Real Traffic files - the current version of sp6v9a is recommended. Feel free to contact me on this forum or Discord with questions, comments, and/or issues. ENJOY!!

    Hello again Controllers! With KLAX being the most played airport in the Tower series thus far, I figured I was long overdue in releasing a custom schedule. And of course, it's not just one schedule but 7 days of chaos and Southern California fun. 🙂 As always, my schedules are real and based on downloaded information from FlightAware. To avoid duplicate flight number issues a few flight numbers were changed, but no animals or movie stars were harmed in the making of the schedules. The schedules are full of passenger, GA, and cargo flights - enough to easily fill up the shortage of available gates. The chart below illustrates the day-by-day commercial and GA traffic included in the daily schedules. I've also created a custom terminal file that should more accurately represent the gates and terminals currently used at KLAX. Additionally, I've included updated airlines and airports files - primarily to handle the widespread GA traffic. And what is a standard feature for my custom schedules, I've included snippet files for each day - 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 because of gate availability and delayed due to "no free terminal". By reducing the number of hours in the schedule, you can eliminate the dropped flights and get a richer more realistic flight volume experience. Attached to bottom of this post you'll find a zip file called klax_crbascott.zip that contains: Common files to be used for each of the 7 days: Updated terminal file - klax_terminal.txt Updated airlines file - klax_airlines.txt Updated airports file - klax_airports.txt Reference file for GA/charter airlines included in GA traffic - klax_charter_airlines.txt 7 folders containing the daily schedule files (10-Sunday, 11-Monday, 12-Tuesday, 13-Wednesday, 14-Thursday, 15-Friday, 16-Saturday). Within each folder you will find: Full custom schedule file for that day - klax_schedule.txt Full GA traffic file for that day - klax_gaandlocaltraffic.txt Folders containing snippet schedule files (both commercial and GA) for the hours 06 thru 22. I'd recommend unzipping klax_crbascott.zip into your KLAX folder. It will create a crbascott sub-folder with the above mentioned contents. As always, please remember to backup your original Real Traffic files - the current version of sp6v8b is recommended. Feel free to contact me on this forum or Discord with questions, comments, and/or issues. ENJOY!!

    I was thinking, what airport doesn't get much love in this game? St Thomas immediately sprang to mind. What starts off as a relaxing morning in the Caribbean quickly turns busy! To liven up the schedule, flights used are from TIST, TISX, TDPD, TTPP, TUPJ, and MWCR My schedule has 44 airlines that fly into St Thomas including cargo, and charter flights and also General Aviation flights. I have split my schedule into individual hours (which I highly recommend) so all flights are more likely to arrive and depart correctly, or if you prefer you can load the entire day in one go. Please refer to the below graph for your preferred times Installation Instructions 1 Please back up the existing TIST folder, before doing anything else 2 Please download both the “tist_airlines.txt” and the “tist_terminal.txt” from the dropbox link below and over write the existing files in the "Extensions\Airfields\TIST" folder. This is important, I will explain why in the notes. 3 Select the folder corresponding to the hour (or full day) you have selected, and download the “tist_schedule.txt” and the “tist_gaandlocaltraffic.txt” from the dropbox link below and over write the existing files in the "Extensions\Airfields\TIST" folder. Any questions on install please ask Schedule Notes The airlines.txt and terminal file is a must as I have customised a lot of cargo, regional and charter airlines IATA and/or ICAO codes that do not appear in the original Real Traffic file. If these files are not used, my schedule will not work to its full potential Reasons for this customising is so that; 1 Airlines cargo subsidiaries, and cargo feeders (eg Cathay Pacific Cargo, Wiggins Airways) can be assigned to cargo terminals 2 Regional airlines (eg Skywest, Republic Airlines) which operate for several mainline airlines (sometimes multiple mainline airlines at the same airport) can be assigned to the correct terminal for that particular mainline airline 3 Charter airlines that have no real world IATA code, can be assigned to a terminal if required ­-------------------------------------- This custom schedule will only work properly with the latest Real Traffic version -------------------------------------- I have designed my schedules on the basis that all Real Colour packs have been installed If not all Real Colour packs have been installed, the schedule will work but you will not get liveries on all aircraft In addition to this some airlines in this schedule have no liveries associated with them at all and will appear white, this is a limitation of the game and not something i can change -------------------------------------- I have adjusted a lot of callsigns to reflect the correct pronunciation in real life, so will need to be pronounced differently to what you may be used to with the default real traffic -------------------------------------- Any questions in regards to these notes, please ask Apart from that, Anmize ou byen!

    To keep pace with the market, the needs of the majority of users and make the best use of time, we have decided to end STB development for the older simulator products, including: Prepar3D V1; Prepar3D V2; Prepar3D V3; Prepar3D V4.0 through V4.3; Microsoft Flight Simulator X (in all forms including Steam Edition); If one of these is your simulator, you can continue to enjoy and use STB as it stands today and we recommend you install the latest updates relevent to each version. STB will continue to be available for purchase on the older platforms, however I won't be making any more changes to the software, addressing defects and support will be limited to know issues. That said, I may still publish content updates (for example airline logos and flight codes) as the various AI packages available continue to evolve. Prepar3D V4.4 is our fully supported platform for STB, and I expect resolution of bugs and new feature introduction to be focussed here. Many thanks, Simon

    @Braf123456 is correct. If FT keep publishing airports with the same faults then customers are going to walk away from this product (as is evident in other threads). I personally think that the latest airport, EDDS, is the worst release yet. @FeelThere @FeelThere Ariel Is it really your business plan to keep dumping airports for T3D onto the market with so many acknowledged problems? Saying that such game engine deficiencies will not be fixed until the next version of Tower yet still releasing airports is disrespecting your customers. Is that a great plan for sales growth and an expanding customer base? I think not. Wayne

    Ariel, to be honest: If the sim engine accepts an instruction to vacate left onto a specific taxiway, but then decides to totally ignore it and vacates the aircraft onto another exit and even in another direction, said sim engine is pretty droppings-like, and it doesn't leave much ground to build trust on when you want us to buy the next version. I'm not talking about deliberate shortcomings that you condoned to getting the product out and refinancing the temporal (= monetary) investment you took to create it. Nobody expects you as an indy company to beat the big guys in the game market. But when your product accepts user input then it has to follow said input. (Except "pilot error" in this case is explicitly wanted, but then it has to be random, programmed that way - and you have to communicate that these errors occur intentional like the technical issues for planes in Tracon.) What do you think would players say about Microsoft's Flight Sim, if turning the dial for the altitude resulted in making a 180° turn? You already have done many things to improve the game, and I really appreciate that. Compared to the original one I bought a year ago, many things have been improved. But leaving flaws like these exiting bugs in doesn't leave a good impression when you want us to buy the next version that you're already investing time (and money) in. If aircraft touch down and creep to the next exit, I can live with that. If aircraft creep to their assigned exit at taxiing speed, I can live with that. That's the way you've constructed it to make it work. I can live with the pushbacks not being realistic (within a minute? oh, come on...). I can live with limited freedom at giving instructions. You found a solution to make it work, in general. That's okay. But NOT taking the exit that it was assigned is sloppy programming. The year-old issue with the spinning Deltas that fail at finding the leading link at Kennedy's M and MA ramps after pushback is sloppy programming. Sorry to be that harsh. But functionality has to ... well, function. It's okay, if you don't find the error without asking for more input from users and need more time. I'd totally accept an update that would only extend logging functions for those specific issues, and I'd gladly try to help by submitting more logfiles, if you need them. But accepting "defeat" by saying "we can't do it any better" is something that I'll definitely remember before buying the new version.

    Wayne, here's a tranquilizer (i.e., explanation). The table is a history of the updates - not just the last update. There are actually FIVE entries for RT - but it's by design. Now lay down in the fetal position and count little baby airplanes until you fall asleep. ✈️😴

    I know you are all about realism, so for a more realistic experience I would suggest using 26R for departures and having arrivals land on 26L - they'll take the A6 exit all day long there.

    Just for the record: I'll make an analogy for Tower3D Pro with another 'niche' game of mine, Out of the Park Baseball. Now, OOTP as it's known has been around since the early 90's and has grown over the years bit by bit, each year a new release with varying amounts of progress and new features. It now has an official MLB and Players license which opens up all sorts of capabilities like doing justice for the Negro Leagues, etc. For someone looking for a detailed simulation of being a General Manager and/or Manager of a Franchise, real or fictional, there is really no other game in town. Yet, on their forums posters get all bent out of shape about matters they have very little ground to stand on protesting. Seems to me Tower3D Pro is in the exact same boat. I don't know of any other ATC simulator that does all that this game does with the support we enjoy. Now, some of you may laugh at that statement, but REALLY... stop and think about it. Where else are you going to go if you want a detailed ATC game? Hmm? If there is a better alternative, don't you think many of us would be elsewhere than this board discussing and tactfully expressing our desires for features and improvements?? Folks who open their mouths and spout off before they really take in the situation with this game really need to adjust their attitude. Do all of us get frustrated with the pace of progress from Vic and Co. and Gabor as well? You Betcha. Would we all rather see monthly releases of patches and upgrades to existing versions of the game and the individual airports? You're damned right we would! However, most well-adjusted, mature individuals here temper their content, questions and comments in the knowledge that FeelThere and Nyerges have limited resources of time, money and manpower to apply to Tower3DPro. More importantly, we understand that continually "whipping the horse" to go faster will eventually result in him lying down rather than going any faster. There is always the risk of killing the golden goose, so to speak. So, let's all be careful not to over-do it when it comes to vitriol and hard lines getting drawn in the proverbial sand. Making demands doesn't help our cause, and may actually hasten a quicker end to the life of Tower3D. /rant off

    Welcome back Mike1960/shyguyseattle, I see you have failed to follow the plentiful, friendly advice given to you by several members of this forum. How can I make this clearer so that you can understand? 1. Please accept the viewpoints of other members, particularly when they provide evidence backing their comments. 2. Please be polite. 3. Please do not call other members liars, or heavily hint at such an accusation. 4. Please stop having childish tantrums. 5. Please enjoy the friendship of this forum and the great advice given by some very knowledgable people. 6. Please contact the developer privately if you have a major beef with one of their products. If you cannot do all of that, please do us all a favor and go and rant elsewhere. All the best dude, Wayne

    @Mike1960, you may want to consider the words of Mark Twain I posted above. You've duded me a couple of time, said I was wrong, showed the entire forum disrespect, asked to backup your erroneous claims with a link, and have subsequently remained silent on uninformed claims you were willing to take to the Supreme Court. I believe you owe me and the rest of the forum an apology. Note: I wanted to take this message private but it said you couldn't receive private messages - so here we are. I assume that is because you are new or don't meet an age requirement. By your actions I have to assume the latter. Again, I'd ask that you calm down. Please remember this is a support forum and not a chat board for ranting and ravings. Thanks!

    You're a little more tolerant than me - I can live with it because I have no other choice. Sadly though, it negatively impacts some airports so much (KSFO and apparently EDDS are prime examples) that it now has to be considered when deciding on any (if any) future purchases. FT has been responding next version to "general" issues for well over a year and drew the line in the sand with the last official update of Pro in March. Food for thought, you can only dangle a carrot in front of someone for so long. ☺️🥕☹️

    In light of the new liveries/models that will be added to RC for KLAX I asked @nyergesdesign if other custom schedule makers in the community could get in on the action. He responded very positively to the idea and stressed that we should "work this out and continue making the game better". His key point being we'd all need to work together. I definitely appreciate Joe for opening the door to this opportunity. Obviously Joe's input is important but I would also like to hear from all the current schedule makers' thoughts on this concept. This is only the first step, we can work out the details of how later if there is unified buy-in. Using Pete's list, I am including the known custom schedule authors. Again, I''d like to hear your thoughts and obviously the community is welcome to chime in as well. Thanks! @ATControl -- Joe @hexzed @jonas243 @bcooley66 @Controller- Rogue @crbascott

    This was you in a different Topic. How can you say that other people should stop complaining or do their own game whilst you complained about stuff in so many other topics and even start complaining here about Atlanta. Second thing I wanted to say: It would be nice if you could start learning some things about grammar and punctuation so you can be better understood. Because sometimes I need to read your posts like three times to understand them! Cheers

    Hi Paul, I'm usually opposing the idea of Early Access or beta releases, but I'm also opened to try it once. It could be very helpful by getting feedback from the community but I'm afraid it could go out of hand quickly once we reject a feature or we lock the development at some point. 99% of our community is friendly and really patient and helpful to us, a joy to talk to but every once in a while we got so much hostile attitude from certain members that is really ruining our days. So it's really a risky decision and as much as I would love to try maybe this is one of the case where a "no" makes more sense. Please let us sleep on it. Vic
