  1. If you need to download the installers again you'll need to go to your download URL's provided in the purchase process from BMT. You can contact them with your purchase information if you need them to create new URL's. If you have the installers then as crbascott said run the installer and during the process it will ask for your information & code. Just ensure you install them into the game folder within Steam.
  2. Don't believe I said they were purchased via Steam either, simply that they were not available. per the OP: "I went to put it into steam through the code button and it said invalid. If someone can help with this that would be appreciated." Since RT and RC are not available through steam you cannot redeem their product codes that way which was what I interpreted the query to be needing to download them again to the new computer. Always a chance of being wrong though 🙂
  3. I didn't think the Real Color and Real Traffic DLC's were available in Steam. Those DLC's are downloaded from the URL's provided from BMT Micro. At least none where available in Steam when I last bought anything, only the actual airports.
  4. If you want to turn right you dont do it from the left lane or you will likely interfere with other traffic. Applications and so on loosely stated need their own lane to route information on. Playing locally that information is just on your computer so no big deal. If you want to play with a friend than your router / modem needs to know what to do with that traffic when it comes in. So using a site like portforward you can figure out where in your router to go to in order to tell it to route that port number to your local IP address. Otherwise when the traffic comes in it stops.
  5. Hmm, it has been a long time since I tried to send planes down P, I believe I got one to go that route by having it hold at P after it was on ER on its way to the ramp. Then telling it to take ES to whatever I needed. I could be wrong as it has been a while but I do recall getting one plane on it but decided it was too fiddly and required to much precision and perfection to make it work. Dont recall if I have it doing it on a video or not. Curious myself now. There are some routes that do not seem to want to work very well, consistently or accurately. That string of commands is pre
  6. As other said this is not normally a function within the game. You push it back, then once it is ready to go you give it taxi route commands. Comes down to how you want to play and you operate within a work flow to keep track of what is happening. I thought about putting those commands in up front but decided I didnt want to re mod the game every update 🙂 And after that it fit within my workflow style very well as I may push a plane back from the gate to get it in the lane but wont move it for a few minutes while other traffic clears out. Makes it much easier for me to assess potenti
  7. As EliGrim said you can give partial routes then finish it once the plane is closer. At some airports where the plane will either fail to find it or accept it sometimes that is the only way to "force" it to find what you are asking. In some cases giving minor final instructions will have the game fill in a reasonable front end. Such as you want it to take A > B > C >D >E >F >G > GATE. Give it D > E > F> G and see what the game does for A > B> C as it may come up with what you need or something acceptable.
  8. Not all of the DLC is created by the game dev's to be fair. And the game itself is out of support so not much sense in changing things for it at this point. The new version in development though..... ... .. dot dot dot 🙂 I made a video about installing DLC and walked through the process and still get a number of questions on how to go through it so I am not absolving the issues just that at this point, and even a year + ago it didn't make a lot of sense to go redo it all when they are working on the new version. Depending on how simple it would be for them to have it scan for your game
  9. Hmm, yeah if you clicked to download the file from the email you received then the file should be in that folder you set it to download which is apparently not the windows download folder. When you run the installer it will prompt you for the install location. If you bought the game from Feelthere directly and installed it to the default directory then you should not need to change anything and can complete the instillation. If you bought from Steam or changed the directory the game is in then you will need to change everything except the final folder or two so that the installer is lo
  10. Lots to play with in here, love it. Not sure I'll have time to finish a file and play it but great work!
  11. Yup, like I said I am aware of that and have played a number of proper ATC games to manage that. But the point is the game currently routes planes in a fashion that is not in line with what you posted. So in that set up we can receive error's for jets flying up behind prop's etc. If we are receiving aircraft well ahead of when we typically would if this was "real" then give us some options to deal with it. Otherwise we don't need to worry about all of that and cut it out of the game. May not be quite as fun doing that though so giving some options to handle aircraft may be a decent compro
  12. Exactly, I've played some games like that and it is a ton of fun but with Tower / 3D the planes arriving on perfect approach 20 to 30 miles out is not quite right. We have no real options to put them in patterns (I dont count the downwind runway one which leads to separation problems for landing / departing planes) or anything stacking altitudes or to really guide them in so we are responsible for separation errors on things we cannot properly manage with the limitations 🙂. At best we send them off to departure again for them to route in later or we manually turn them to another runway or tr
  13. That is something I think I requested for the next version. Not necessarily that we are able to issue those commands as ATC would handle most of that before handing over to the Tower but in this game all planes arrive lined up 20 + miles away from the airport when in reality there are waypoints and flight paths you all are taking to come in and getting on when leaving so having planes coming in like that would be nice as an option if we are going to take some of approach control away from ATC. Would make multiplayer a little more dynamic giving the other guy something to do on departur
  14. There is a sticky thread where all the custom schedules are listed if the authors consented if that is what you mean.
