    EasyJet new and old livery

    Hi it is possible to do that by changing the code in the "[icao]_schedule.txt" file for the specific airport you want to see the diversity. You would need to look up the code from the "[icao]_airlines.txt" file. In the schedule file the code is in this format: For example: Taken from KLAS and looking up the codes in the airline.txt file you can see that WN is Southwest and OO is Skywest. I would assume that the code for the different liveries will be different but I am unsure. If it is the same airline code for each livery, then I'm afraid it will not be possible to select which livery is used and it will probably be just random. PS: Highly recommend the use of custom schedules: http://charityalbumman.blogspot.com/2018/08/tower-3d-inc-pro-custom-schedules-list.html hmmm no Ben yet - He must be a asleep :D

    Real Color "Survey" - New Liveries?

    I think the new Alaska livery has been implemented from what I have been seeing in the pro challenge testing; hasn't it? I'll try to come up with a list when I find time. I'd love to see Jet2.com Holidays livery at LEBL The old Easyjet livery at LEBL / EDDM Are you wanting just liveries? Or can we list aircraft also?

    Agreed. Good news to hear the use of more modern graphics; which look promising from the screenshots above. I am eager for FT developers to start the next version.

    Tower!3D Pro Steam Crashing

  6. Edited to reflect a better description ;)
  7. Did you try a continue taxi command? Also was there another aircraft on a taxiway behind this aircraft attempting to pushback? I know the sim struggles to push an aircraft back if the path behind is blocked (doesn't have to be the taxiway directly connected to the gate - it can sometimes be the taxiway behind if it is close enough - linked with the aircraft collision zones.

    EGKK Crash

    The good old "have you tried turning it off and on again". In your log above avast was preventing something. Glad it's resolved.

    NEO AIRCRAFT - Community Input Required

    Hmm, will take some time out next week to look at this and come up with some ideas.

    Absolutely agree.

    EGKK Crash

    Try adding the game to the AVAST safe list and re-test :)

    I doubt it will be. Too big. Taxi instructions would be a nightmare given the sim is limited to 6 taxiway instructions.
  13. Hi I've created a custom schedule and from testing it I am getting a lot of "=> ***** close cross incoming range" errors in regards to arrival aircraft. I did some initial research and found this topic but there is no set solution. I know this issue is to do with arrivals only. And that it is related to crossing runways - I personally am unsure how the sim calculates how an arrival is granted permission to spawn. I have uploaded the log file and uploaded a spreadsheet to help better understand what could be the issue here. Situation: Airport: KLAS Runway Setup: - 26L active (all arrivals) - 26R departures (commercial mainly - 1z Janet and 1z GA departure) - 19L departures (GA only) - 19R arrivals for GA that are transferred from 26L NOTE: I cannot make 19L an active as I require commercial aircraft only on 26L, which we cannot implement currently in schedules. If we activate 19L as well, then commercial aircraft will spawn on this runway which is something I want to avoid completely. All arrival aircraft spawn on time, up until SWA6885. This arrival is NOT the first one with the error messages "=> ***** close cross incoming range" but it is the first one that is considerably late. Onwards from here, 72% of arrivals from this point are delayed considerably. DAL2832 is the first aircraft to get the error message, followed by (in the order shown): DAL2832 - scheduled at 12:27 to land around 12:34 (spreadsheet contains this data) - between DAL2832 and SWA6885, there are x4 arrivals that spawn with no such error message SWA6885 SWA6448 WWI93 (GA) ASA1410 SWA3552 SWA541 AAL2456 N18ZD (GA) DAL1097 SWA378 UAL462 RSP137 (GA) What is happening (time stamp wise): @ 12:27, DAL2832 [arr] spawns on app to 26L > Lands @ 12:34:58 (on time) --- Between 12:28 and 12:37 all arrivals spawn on time & all departures spawn on time (i.e. pushback) @ 12:33:01, N93124 (GA) lines up on 19L & immediately starts her takeoff roll @ 12:34:07 JSX108 (GA) lines up on 19L & immediately starts her takeoff roll @ 12:34:55 JSX108 (GA) has taken off successfully @ 12:35:25 PWA454 (GA) spawns on app to 26L > Lands @ 12:46:55 (on time) @ 12:35:59 PWA454 (GA) begins her turn onto final approach for 19R @ 12:37:00 SWA5742 (arrival prior to SWA6885) spawns on time on to 26L > Lands @ 12:43:58 (on time) @ 12:38:00 SWA6885 attempts to spawn for the first time (denied with error "***** close cross incoming range") --- There are x4 attempts between now and 12:38:36 with the same error for SWA6885 @ 12:38:36 SWA6885 attempts again to spawn onto 26L - Even though there is more than 5nm seperation now to SWA5742 - There is also no GA landing on 19R or departing 19L - However PWA454 is on app to 19R - not sure how far out (I will assume 46 mins - 38 mins = 8 mins - So probably about to turn onto finals [basing upon the 7 min approach]) --- @ 12:41:19, I believe PWA454 turns onto finals for 19R as log state changes from "FINALRUNWAY" to "STATE_INCOMING" @ 12:38:51 LXJ528 (GA) lines up on 19R & immediately starts her takeoff roll --- SWA6885 is continuing to try to spawn @ 12:39:55 LXJ528 (GA) has taken off successfully @ 12:40:00 Now SWA6448 tries to spawn on time without success and the same error message -- PWA454 on 19R app. is now (00:46:55 - 00:40:00 = 7 mins odd) therefore about 13-15nm out from 19R -- SWA5742 on 26L app. is now (12:43:58 - 00:40:00 = 4 mins odd) therefore about 6/7nm out from 26L And so forth ... Why aren't these arrivals spawning when there is plenty of separation? It cannot be due to crossing runways because 26L and 19R or 19L do NOT cross according to the ADIRS radar. FORUM.xlsx 1st_attempt_log.txt
  14. EGKK doesn't use 26R as a main runway in reality. The only time they do is on a night shift when there are no heavy aircraft due in or out for maintenance on the main runway, 26L / 8R.
  15. Hi all, I think it is best we have one place for a complete list of those custom schedule's already developed (and future ones). Therefore I have created a blog post (linked below) which I will keep up-to-date with the aid of community developers. Complete Custom Schedule's List PLAYERS: Support is provided on the airport timetable thread by the developer (i.e. the link found on the table on the blog post above - "Complete Custom Schedule's List"). DEVELOPERS ***IMPORTANT***: When you create your own custom schedule post on the forum, please make sure to include "CUSTOM SCHEDULE" in the title along with the airport ICAO code so it is easy to identify. This also allows your schedule to appear in the "complete list" link on the blog post above. Not required but HIGHLY recommended: To achieve maximum compatibility for users who wish to play your schedule on multiplayer; it is recommended you create "hourly snippets". Between 3-6 hourly snippets should suffice, depending on the number of flights within the time period of your schedule's hourly snippet. For example; create your schedule, provide the full timetable "schedule.txt" but also provide hourly snippets: 0600-1000, 1000-1400, 1400-1800, 1800-2200 or similar depending on the flow between those hours. These can also overlap as well; e.g. 1000-1500, 1400-1800 and 1700-2300. Why do this? It helps prevent long loading times and loading issues; i.e. a schedule not loading and players getting disconnected (see here for an example). Not required but recommended: Please provide a chart or table of your timetable (hourly is suggested) so that it is easy for users to pick a time slot to play. If you have any new schedules, either PM me the link or DM me it on the Multiplayer discord server so I can update the blog post. If you would like me to add special developer notes to the blog post (or amend what I have stated already), please feel free to PM or discord DM me and I shall happily do so.
  16. Added: @ATControl -- Joe's EGKK @Ripskin's KMCO
  17. KLAS would have been my vote but I'd love to see an update for KBOS with regards to RC.
  18. Added @battlehawk77's EGKK weeks worth schedule :)

    There hasn't been an "official wishlist" request by FeelThere yet but I am also eager to know the answers you seek :)
  20. Well done on completing this. Even though I don't own Gatwick; I am absolutely sure it will be the same high quality as your other schedules.
  21. pete_agreatguy


    Looking forward to a few surprises by the sound of it. Shame the main product and dlc don't have the same level of support.
  22. pete_agreatguy


    Okay, once the pro challenge is completed (on short finals now), I'll do it :D ... If I get to 3 hours though and I don't beat it - I'm quitting game otherwise I'll lose what sanity I have left.

    noob on schedule customizing

    Not sure if it useful but these are the layouts for the "icao_schedule.txt" and "icao_gaandlocaltraffic.txt": Never understood why the layout was chosen this way personally. A lot of inconsistency and illogical coding in place. i.e. The use of iata and icao codes - why not just stick with one across the board ... and ... arranging the arrival and departure times the opposite of the airport codes.
