  1. I've been away from this sim for a while running another one. After reading the release of the latest version, I thought this issue might have been addressed. I was really disappointed to see it's gotten no attention from the crew. It must be a real undertaking for the developer to make this realistic, because this is the phraseology used by controllers everywhere in the US. If you're a professional pilot or controller running this software, it's practically a show-stopper to use the voice recognition (which is pretty darn good!) and be forced to say it "wrong". It can certainly be
  2. I could not figure out why TRACON!2012 would not generate any aircraft for Ramona Airport (KRNM). I triple checked the SAN sector file dozens of times. I found an error in the "SAN - Before you Begin.txt" file that is included in the add-on package. The instructions say: 2. Copy the four text lines below and paste at the very bottom of the airports.txt file. MYF Montgomery Field CA US 32.81 N 117.13 W KMYF RMN Ramona Airport CA US 33.02 N 116.54 W KRMN SDM Brown Field Municipal Airport CA US 32.34 N 116.58 W KSDM
  3. BTW, the "airspace editor" is a really nice touch. It lets you guys to crank out sectors that are fairly realistic, but allows users, with very intimate knowledge of an airspace and how it is worked, to make tweaks that very closely represent real world. I am very grateful for that. TJ
  4. Vic, This is awesome news! I've recently started working the SoCal SAN Area again, and I really like it. REQUEST: It is really difficult to work a busy sector when the towers release their departures at the exact same second and without any request for release. For reasons I don't understand, it is uncanny how often the towers do this. I understand the sim does not currently support a "request for release" from the tower to the departure controller (as would be required in the real world), but that would be an perfect addition that would allow the departure controller to understa
  5. Well, like I said, "I started using . . . " and was doing it wrong. I was assigning the keys a prescribed "text block" and it would not take the ENTER key. I changed it to "multi key" macro and the ENTER works great! Thanks! I'm only using them to get the aircraft off the gates at LAX, so I have a pushback commands with runway assignments and taxi instructions each assigned to an individual macro key. I added one last one for "continue taxi". That way, I can work the regular ground and local positions without any problems and handle much more traffic. I've kind of automated the ram
  6. I can't figure out how to have the "send" command added to the macro shortcut. Nothing seems to work from a keyboard standpoint. That would be a nice addition to my macro. Any ideas? I never thought about simply clicking the flight strip. That would work just fine. Thanks!
  7. I have a keyboard "work-around" I've been using for a couple days now. I LOVE controlling with voice, and it works very well in this sim. But, "one-holing" a the ramp tower, ground, and local positions on both the north and south complexes at LAX at the same time with very heavy RealTraffic loads can be overwhelming. Simply put, you talk non-stop and if just one aircraft misses a clearance, it's a mess. So, I started using a Logitech G105 gaming keyboard. It allows you to record macro commands and assign them to anyone of several different dedicated gaming keys. The only thing I'm do
  8. This is probably not the answer you're looking for but you really should get the schedule creator program. It's very reasonably priced and it really adds needed realism to the traffic at an airport. I'm not a spokes person, but you'll be happy you did. TJ
  9. I have the same issue with B9, but I've never tried typing it. TJ
  10. BillA is correct. About 99% of the time, all SAN departures go all the way to the end. One notable exception is an occasional RJ departure to LAX. They almost always have flow times to LAX. Sometimes there will be a stack of departures holding short of 27 with an LAX-bound RJ taxiing eastbound on BRAVO towards DELTA. Sometimes, the tower will give the RJ a clearance to depart runway 27 at DELTA, so they can bypass the line at the end of BRAVO and make their flow time. Another interesting thing that happens at SAN involves extra large airliners taxiing from terminal 2 to runway 27. R
  11. Folks - Kingsman's post is correct and it's a good workaround to get an aircraft to taxi across an active runway without stopping and waiting for a separate clearance . . . for now at least. Using LAX as an example with aircraft landing on 25L and 24R and departing 25R and 24L. When an aircraft is rolling out after landing, issue their "taxi to the ramp via . . . " clearance. They'll acknowledge (and unfortunately come a to a complete stop on the taxiway after exiting the runway) and then begin their taxi. At some point during the taxi, if you want them to continue across the paralle
  12. I agree with Viper's comments. The whole idea of runway crossing clearances it to keep the traffic flowing safely. Having taxiing aircraft come to a complete stop before they will follow a command to cross an intersection is kind of crazy. It's also frustrating to see them come to a complete stop every time they exit a runway even when they have a clearance to taxi to the ramp. This would rarely happen in RL with a clear taxi clearance given on the runway. Of course, the AC would usually be switching to ground to get that clearance and would stop until they receive it. In the case of Tow
  13. I hope this is the appropriate place for this suggestion/request. If not, my apologies. We really need a command that allows runway crossing instructions as part of the taxi clearance. It really bogs down the flow when every aircraft stops at every runway intersection. While that is mandatory for all aircraft without crossing instructions in RL, it is very common to issue crossing instructions as part of a taxi clearance and it's done all the time in RL. My biggest issues involve aircraft landing at 25L and 24R at LAX. I would love to be able to issue, "American 123. Cross runway 25R
