  1. @MJKERR I was able to download and install the service pack.
  2. The next airport was announced to be Istanbul (with it's eight gazillion taxiways from A1A until T12).
  3. The thing is: It does not always work. When I control DFW, I always try to get landing aircraft take the route from 17L via ER, P, ES, JS, A, K to the ramp. It never works. Not even when I let them hold on ER short of P. The route is simply unusable. The only route the game engine accepts is crossing both runways at either ER or A/B via P. The same goes for the taxi route from the MA ramp to 22R at JFK, when you try to make it A, W, C, E, FB - it's never accepted although the number of steps is below six (the only route accepted, however, is B, W, C, E, FB, although it is longer...).
  4. LTFM? Really? Unless FT offers a wayfinding update for the game, I don't see how to make a landing on 34L going to apron 3 work with the limitation of six taxiways per route.
  5. Thank you for voicing what I was thinking! When I saw the video and the screenshots, so much seemed to be off balance somehow, but I couldn't pinpoint what it was. Also, when I take this video as a reference, the terminal building seems out of proportion, especially regarding the height... (The terminal can be seen from the 21:00 mark.) It is barely higher than the vertical stabilizer of the Japan Airlines Dreamliner, but it seems twice as high in the screenshots.
  6. Not so different from where I am. (Unsurprisingly, since EDDH and EGLL are just 400 nm apart.) This is purely the effect of earth's rotation working uninfluencedly above a flat oceanic surface and the proximity of London and Hamburg to the ocean.
  7. Remember - we're talking about England... 😁
  8. @MJKERR I don't know what was actually used, but streamers and Youtubers often (if not mainly) use OBS Studio (so do I for personal use) which is open source and free.
  9. I won't disagree with you on that point. (Then, again, it might be easier to adapt in case the approach procedure changes, but that could also be achieved by changing parameters in an xml/ini/config file...)
  10. The 3° glideslope is not carved in stone. London City Airport (EGLC), for example operates with a 5.5° glideslope, which means that aircraft start their descent out of 2,000 ft at 3.4 DME. The ILS Y approach in EDDF is 3.2° descending out of 5,000 ft at VAGUL (13.9 DME). Might have something to do with that.
  11. Which is why KEENE2.DFW and KING8.TTT demand an immediate right turn heading 240° and TGATE3.DFW initially turns right towards ELLVR before joining a 130° heading. For a tower controller this is a challenging task to stack the departures without conflict, but it seems possible.
  12. I guess he means taxiing eastern departures from the cargo area and terminals B and D to 17R/35L and 13L as well as western departures from the GA area and terminals A, C and E to 18L/36R and 31L via taxiways A, B, Y and Z.
  13. If you want to operate KLAX realistically right now, you should also set the traffic volume considerably lower... 😉
  14. Oh, I just got another idea. How about an airport that's (almost) exclusively GA? Like Teterboro (KTEB) or Denver Centennial (KAPA)?
  15. That's interesting, because before I wrote the post, I looked up departures and arrivals from Sunday at Flightradar24 and saw WK131G landing on runway 28 at 21:30 and LX147 landing on runway 34 78 minutes later (which, of course, is in no way critical, but left me with the impression there might be a rule, because if runway 34 is in use, why would you open runway 28 for smaller jets, especially with this volume?).
  16. Issues are definitely the late turnoffs from the landing runways 14 (after ~2,400m / 7,825 ft) and 34 (after ~ 2,080m / 6,825 ft), especially with GA, RJs, mediums and 75s. I'm not sure whether the 28 can be used for landings for RJs and mediums while simultaneously landing on 34, or whether the 10 is usable for medium departures. Other than that, the layout seems less complex than EKCH. Other airports like LIMC, LIML, EDDB, or LGAV have layouts we already have in the game. Or would be overwhelming weaker hardware, like LIRF, or are too complex for the game, like LTFM (the new airpor
  17. And PANC doesn't seem so busy, might be relatively boring without the effects of frost and snow, I'd think. I think LSZH has an interesting layout and operation schemes. And it's a quite busy airport.
  18. In that case: EDDH. 😁 EDDL is rather boring, except it sees some heavies (in particular: an Emirates 77W to OMDB, and an Iran Air Airbus 330 to Tehran ), too, despite its longest runway being just 9,842 ft long. (I took my very first flight from EDDL on an L-1011-500, flight LT900 to KMIA.) To be honest: I'd love to see SundAir's livery in the game...
  19. I am completely at a loss... I'm working on a custom schedule for Newark and found that all 73Hs from American (and United, but I'm still trying to figure that one out, so disregard that for a moment) turned out white (I have updated RealTraffic to SP6V27, and I own all RCs, including retro). The funny thing is that the 73Hs from American work perfectly next door at Kennedy! And there's also no mistake made in the schedule. Here's an example. Flight AAL1388 arriving at JFK: (PHX,JFK,73H,AA,1388,05:55,12:00,1,AA) Flight AAL2505 departing from EWR: (EWR,CLT,73H,AA,2
  20. Switching to OnSlowSpring was really a grrrrrrrrreat idea... Downloading KIAD (131 MB) using a 100 MBit/s line takes more than an hour (at ~ 25 KB/s). Awesome. I mean, I'm older, but I was glad leaving 56k modems behind at some point...
  21. One airport where that works perfectly is ... St. Thomas. Which makes the fact they didn't implement it in Heathrow even more puzzling when you realize it's one of the airports that the basic game comes with...
  22. I don't own EGLL, but one thing strikes me as odd: Both runways definitely have a displaced threshold, and I wonder why FT did not design it as such, especially when it was no problem to use a DT back in the early days of the game when KJFK came out (remember runways 22R and 31L)...
