    Tower3D Pro resets computer at START

    1) Is this happening with only Tower 3D or other games/applications as well? 2) Have you done a fresh CLEAN install of Windows 10 yet to confirm it is not a OS issue?

    Screen resolution during rain storm

    There is another one but I cannot remember it. DOF is one of them to turn off though as it especially helps with liveries being easier to see :)

    Screen resolution during rain storm

    @jonas243 will have some ideas which helped me. There is a setting that you disable in advanced graphics but I cannot remember it off the top of my head. Jonas will know it 🙂

    @NMaggio do you have User Account Control active?
  5. 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 as well). 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 make your seperate 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: For maximum compatibility for users who wish to play your schedule on multiplayer; it is recommended you create "hourly snippets". Between 3-5 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. 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 recommend: Please provide a chart or table of your timetable (hourly is suggested) so that it 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.

    Tower3D Pro resets computer at START

    Is your Tower installation installed on a main directory ? i.e. C:\Tower 3D Pro?
  7. I don't always check the forum thoroughly. Others have contacted me as instructed on the main thread. I will add it later now that you have informed me :)

    d3d11.dll caused an Access Violation

    I would certainly recommend a fresh windows install as discussed on your other thread 🙂
  9. Question is in the title. Personally I don't enjoy ground as much as tower. Out of the airports to choose from though I would say I enjoy: KATL, KBOS, KJFK, KLAS, KLAX, KMCO and KSFO. I enjoy KLAX, KJFK and KSFO the most as ground. I really like the madness at KLAX using crbascott's custom schedule. The same goes for his JFK schedule. The layout is fantastic as well.

    Certainly try a fresh Windows install. You can create the Windows 10 install media tool here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10 Just make sure to: a) Make a note of your Windows Product Code (here's how). b) Backup any personal files you need to because reinstalling windows WILL delete your current files on your hard drive. c) Download your drivers prior to installing as you may need ethernet/wifi to connect online to update windows etc :)
  11. Edited developer notes to include recommendations of including hourly snippets to help reduce chances of loading issues within multiplayer.

    CUSTOM SCHEDULE for KPHL 20181107 V3.1 by Scout

    MP = Multiplayer. There are issues with how much the Sim can handle. I am unsure on the numbers. In order to get your schedule to load with traffic onwards from 1500, we had to create a 3 hour "snippet". We did not try prior as we wanted to play 1500 onwards. It's not your schedule at fault here. Just how much traffic the sim can handle. @crbascott, @jonas243, @hexzed or someone else may be able to shed more light than myself.

    CUSTOM SCHEDULE for KPHL 20181107 V3.1 by Scout

    There are issues with MP. You need to use snippets in order to play beyond 1400. Recommend 3 hour snippets for anyone wanting to do MP.

    Custom (REAL) Traffic #15 -- Barcelona v1.0 -- Fall 2018/19

    This is an airport but, nothing to do with Joe's schedule. I suggest making separate threads for these types of issues you are having. 🙂 it will help FeelThere identify them more easily and they may be able to fix them.
  15. Question is in the title. For me I play tower often on MP with a friend. I love boston with a northwest setup. I love the challenge in busy periods of getting the departures off of both 33L and 27, whilst keeping an eye on arrivals. I also love JFK with the diversity of traffic. I would enjoy EDDM more if the slow taxi bug wasn't present and we were able to shoot the gaps. I love the challenge of KLAS, especially if using 19's and 26's 🙂 You have to really keep an eye on the gaps leaving 2.5nm space for a departure on 26R. I love KLAX for the sheer number of flights and the diversity. Even though it is quieter than others, I really like controlling at KPHL using 35 and 27R for arrivals, 35 and 27L for departures. I think my favourite would be KSFO but only if we could control this airport realistically. Currently it is impossible to shoot gaps at KSFO using 1's and 28's without sending aircraft to G for takeoff clearances or instructing arrivals to go around in order to create a gap. So overall, I think I would choose KBOS, KLAS and KPHL as my overall favourites.

    What's your favourite airport to control as tower and why?

    Thanks for your shared experience. Keep them coming. Don't forget the ground controller options post :)

    Custom (REAL) Traffic #15 -- Barcelona v1.0 -- Fall 2018/19

    1 Use the Windows built in Voice Recognition training wizards to fix this :) (See this thread). You will be best posting a new thread for "LEBL related errors" so that Joe's thread provides support for his schedule only and not actual airport bugs.

    Custom (REAL) Traffic #15 -- Barcelona v1.0 -- Fall 2018/19

    Post the issues you are having here as others may also be having them. If there is a solution, they will be able to see the replies :) PS: If you are seeing a lot of white aircraft; that is standard for Joe's quality schedules.

    EDDM Taxiway Question

    Or just skip that taxiway and provide the next logical path :) It should still take that taxiway (assuming the link is correct in game). I haven't played EDDM in a while so cannot verify.

    You just made my day :)

    Speech Issue Tower3D Pro

    Maybe we should add this to the wishlist for the next version? ;)
  23. I would also recommend this.

    Circuit Traffic in Tower 3d Pro

    I've had major issues with the traffic pattern never doing what I want it to do (what an aircraft is meant to do). It is best to just give a missed approach or published missed approach aircraft a "contact departure" command and let the "departure" controller bring it around again. If you try to use the traffic pattern it causes mayhem with your other traffic because you cannot control the aircraft's speed on approach or it's height during the traffic pattern (crosswind, downwind, base and finals).

    Plane not holding short, crash...

    It's a repeatable bug ;)
