  1. Save yourself time and hassle and give my custom LAX schedule that I wrote a couple months back a try. It's FAR more complete than the developers original schedule and is loaded with GA and cargo (which you didn't get in the original). All the instructions are in the README file for deploying the custom schedule, terminal file, airlines, etc. PS --- VIR73 that you showed in the picture doesn't even fly to LAX anymore. VIR73 is now a 747 service from Manchester to Orlando.
  2. What schedile are you using—the developers or a custom schedule you made or picked up from someone?
  3. The 2nd picture is pre-service pack. You need to delete the airport and re-add it
  4. You can't add. It's all developer driven. And good luck getting them to re-model anything for you or texture something for this game -- it's not going to happen. Developers have already stated they are making no more alterations to the game.
  5. Seems like you installed your RC in the wrong folder. VIR73 working for me just fine at MCO.
  6. Good catch. Schedule file is updated in the dropbox. Please re-DL the file.
  7. What Virgin 747’s are you referring to? What airport are you referring to? I pulled up all Virgin 747’s that have been given w a liverry and all appear w color as intended.
  8. You should consider upgrading your PC. 2GB graphics cards are pretty ancient for today’s specs. Average is 6-8GB graphics cards these days. You should also upgrade your memory. 16GB Ram is min I would ever consider these days for efficient use. I run 32GB of ram currently and an 8GB graphics card on one PC and an 11GB graphics card on the other. Graphic games need graphic power.
  9. Look at the "EDITS" in the original post. This was already referenced earlier when I put out the files that it was changed.
  10. This is my home airport. I was on the ball with this one. Too much knowledge not to get it out day 1.

  12. I agree. Liveries are definitely not correct. You should have wheels on the body of your aircraft
  13. Acting smart? It's basically READING the schedule and KNOWING what's in the game.....let me lay it out nice and easy for you .... Texture pack 4 - Assets/Resources/airplanes/Textures/A330_eq.jpg (the ONLY time TAME has been entered as a livery) Schedule says -- UIO, JFK, 332, EQ, 550, 08:39, 12:00, 1, EQ JFK, UIO, 332, EQ, 551, 12:00, 12:32, 1, EQ 330 livery DOES NOT provide a livery for a 332 in the schedule. Result = WHITE PLANE Texture Pack 4 - Assets/Resources/airplanes/Textures/B773_ms.jpg Texture Pack 12 - Assets/Resources/airplanes/Textures/B738_ms.jpg CAI, JFK, 77W, MS, 985, 15:56, 12:00, 1, MS JFK, CAI, 773, MS, 986, 12:00, 19:37, 1, MS 773 livery DOES exist, 77W does NOT exit. 77W = WHITE PLANE Texture Pack 4 -- Assets/Resources/airplanes/Textures/A332_ar.jpg (the ONLY time ARGENTINAS has been entered as a livery by the developer) EZE, JFK, 330, AR, 1300, 08:37, 12:00, 1, AR JFK, EZE, 330, AR, 1301, 12:00, 16:03, 1, AR a livery in the pack for an a332 does not put a livery on an A330 jet. ==== WHITE PLANE Texture Pack 3 -- Assets/Resources/airplanes/Textures/B788_dy.jpg // Assets/Resources/airplanes/Textures/B77L_dy.jpg Texture pack 4 -- Assets/Resources/airplanes/Textures/B788_dy.jpg Texture pack 8 - Assets/Resources/airplanes/Textures/B789_dy.jpg CPH, JFK, 788, DY, 7011, 21:31, 12:00, 1, DY CDG, JFK, 789, DY, 7019, 21:21, 12:00, 1, DY OSL, JFK, 788, DY, 7001, 20:49, 12:00, 1, DY LGW, JFK, 789, DY, 7015, 20:13, 12:00, 1, DY BOTH 788 & 789 exist in the packs and in the schedule. AND in the picture below, both models wear the livery they should. If you don't see DY livery, then you obviously have an issue with your game and you need to review your files.
  14. What about them? You're asking the same question over and over again. As stated by both myself and Scott, if the planes livery has not been released by the developer or is not packed for JFK, the plane is white. Doesn't matter what airline it is, it's the same concept.
  15. I write my schedules based on what is currently being flown into the given airport the schedule is based on --- this is the same thing as any other schedule I write. If the livery does not exist from Nyerges design, then the plane is white. This is the same concept that has been talked about in 100's of threads for this game since it began.
  16. No flight tracking websites offer anything close to what you want.
  17. Plan is as follows— EDDM next. Orlando is ready for immediate release as soon as the airport comes out from the developer. SFO is 85% written and will include TWO versions—daily general version and one w/ GA insanity. I have ATL and SAN written as well, but they need testing. Stay tuned

  19. This was already referenced. It's always best to read other posts about the same airport to not jam up the forum with duplicated posts.
  20. On it. Video is up. Massive schedule post, airline file remake, terminal file clean up, along with cargo and loads of GA coming up shortly.
  21. Towing is minimal. You are more likely to get an announcement inside the airport that your gate has changed and people walk to where the plane is gated. You only really see towing mid-day if there is a long break between flights (ie Fiji at LAX always moved out by the birds nest and sits there until the departing flight comes up and it gets towed back). Like I said in the prior post towing mostly happens for early morning rush at east coast airports where you have a lot of outbound early movements or late night on the west coast. Maybe at an airport like LGA or BOS that have inbound intl/dom and tow to the new terminal where departures of the same airline happen.
  22. Manually seeking out an N# for each and every flight on a daily schedule that includes 1000-2000 flights depending on the airport would be straight insanity. It takes long enough to write schedules w/ the current setup. The current method is just fine. Simply add a field to the schedule reader and you accomplish the same item. Code is changable -- time is money. No sense in adding in manual search and find. As a programmer in real life, it makes no sense to me to write that much code for something that could be done with a simple modify to the current code. I'm sure Vic and Gabor as programmers would also agree. Simple changes for mass effect.
  23. From a programming standpoint, here are your hurdles with the code -- (for the example I will use Terminal A as inbound and terminal B as outbound) -- 1. It would be easy to designate Terminal A for the arrival of the jet, however you would have to make sure that your Terminal A does not permit outbound movements of a specific airline once they arrive. You would also have to make sure that your code prevents the flight schedule system from spawning a flight in Terminal A for departure. You would then have to further code the allowance for a tug to push the plane out of that gate and stay attached and drag it to somewhere else on the airfield (such as airfields like LAX over by terminal 8 where United parks a bunch of planes that aren't being used). From there you would also have to make sure that your code allows for the jet to be selected for taxi at any given time (maybe a 30+ minute head start to allow time for the plane to be towed to another terminal). Your code would also have to be able to evaluate if there is gate space available to even tow the jet to where the flight will depart from, which means it has to be able to evaluate the schedule to see what other jets still inbound need that gate space. -- In theory there wouldn't be a need to really "park" a jet somewhere else on the airfield. As soon as the jet lands, pulls to the gate, spends a few minutes there, you could instantly give it tow instructions and tow it to the correct departure terminal. 2. As far as the theory of having more jets than gates at an airfield, I would say you will most likely only get that scenario at early morning hours at an airport (if on the east coast) or (late night (if on the west coast). Boston for example -- if you're at the airport 6-9am, you will see many aircraft being towed that were just held over at the international terminal side of the airport that were parked there overnight. As others depart during the morning rush, more are rolled in to fill gates instead of waiting for jets that would be arriving from other cities. Overseas, at an airport like Frankfurt, you see towing throughout the day, but remember that airport is sending jets all over the world, so towing there is a lot more active than in the US for the most part). To put this in the sim --- wow, no clue,, you'd need a very sophisticated code that is constantly evaluating how many jets are inbound and how many jets are missing an aircraft. You're not talking tons of jets either -- so the likelihood of having to tow something around is minimal throughout the day (aside from terminal changes, or rush hours). ***Based on your comments of 'parking' a jet somewhere on a taxiway -- I assume you mean aircraft that have landed for example -- i.e. not having to take them directly to a terminal and instead moving them around and letting them wait for a gate to open? This would be nice, but remember this would require you to do the following with your code --- 1. Tell us where the gate is AHEAD of time -- the game currently doesn't tell you where the plane is going until you give it a taxi instruction to the gate. I know this has been mentioned in the past but it's probably one of the more inefficient features of the game forcing you to taxi the plane by 'guessing' what side of a terminal it will go to, and in turn having to give a 2nd taxi instruction which is a waste of time. 2. Allow your code to be 'free' -- and by that I mean the code should not force you to taxi the jet to the terminal as soon as it lands. (ex. DAL23 taxi A-B-hold short of K --- nothing is said about a terminal) The code would have to be 'open ended' allowing the controller to put the plane ANYWHERE on the field they want and let it sit for as long as needed until the gate becomes open. With this, you would also have to relax your code rules to not force jets into a 'penalty' for waiting -- you would have to code to assess a penalty if the jet is late for a departure for it's next flight by not getting to the gate on time. -- take one step further on this you would also have to eliminate the lines that are drawn on the ground radar from having to find an endpoint at the terminal. It would need to be able to end where the plane wants to stop. Food for thought. Hope your coding team is up for the challenge.
  24. This is also not possible in this game as Tower does not support the “towing” of aircraft between gates. You wouldn’t accomplish anything by having a jet fly into one terminal only to be stuck there with it never being moved again (therefore blocking a gate from being used by an airplane that actually needs the space). I just see it as a bad domino effect. Put towing on the list for a future version of tower. Otherwise I would scap this idea at this point due to limitations of the game. I also agree that creating false ICAO and IATA codes prob isn’t the best idea
  25. Further clean-up work on the schedule today for a SWA flight. DL from the dropbox for the most current. Check the original post to be sure your DL is the latest date and time.
