  1. Eli, Tried it last night - Wow I was overwhelmed with Flights. I will continue to test. I like the warnings, like so many planes, or exceeding maximum. I made a few mistakes, and the system warned me. Nice. I will let you know after a deep dive into tonights flights into TIST. Great interface - looks very official.
  2. Been playing for a couple weeks - love the game - I think I have 8 DLC Add-ins now. I use Multi-screen for the ADIRS - but I have yet to see a tutorial on what the 3 symbols. next to the Multi-screen ICON is the Crossed Arrows. I push it and it changes color, but cannot see any noticable action on the scren. Also the Tup and Tdn arrows. I thought may font, but cannot also see any information. I went back and looked on-line and in the forums. Even watched Youtube - can't see any reference to that. I was hoping it could help rotate the ADIRS display. But nothing. If I missed in the help, please let m e know. I have yet to play multiplayer, so maybe it is related to that. Thank you in advance
  3. Sorry, reread my post - found that 8x12 is 20 contacts. Still works the same. You could put some more wires and have alternative functions for other purposes.
  4. I have been using Tower3d Pro for 2 weeks. I have purchased six DLC airports. Love the SIM. Like so many, I don't like using the Left Shift button for Push To Talk (PTT). I looked at Keyboard Macros, registry hacks, etc. I have a background in electronics, so I went hardware. I took an old (NEW) Wired USB Keyboard apart. They use an XY matrix to push contacts for each key. The module that runs the keyboard is about 1"x2". It has 16 contacts (8 x 12). I was able to find out which pads operate each key. With some experimenting I found the Shift Key. So plugging in the "SECOND" USB Keyboard, I hooked some wires to the contacts, and "IT WORKS". You can probably use any old keyboard. Each will have some type of contacts. So I plan to make an actual PTT BUTTON like controllers use. In addition, I could hook up a foot pedal as an alternative. I was going to hack an Arduino for a HID (Human Interface Device). There are quite a few articles on how to do this.. I work for an I.T. company, and we have dozens of space keyboards. Our local Microcenter sells cheap keyboards for about $4.00. Just thought if anyone wanted to try this, they can. I am sure now I figured this out, FT will probably include an alternate Key on the next release. Oh Well Just want to contribute to the community that brings me so much joy. Sorry for the lousy job, but this was a "PROOF OF CONCEPT". I will clean it up and post a better picture. Maybe I'm taking this hobby a little to serious. But I love it!!!
  5. If I download the KRDU file again, and use my unlock code, would I then automatically get the "UPDATED" version? Just wondering.
  6. I undestand that people say "Released updates". I purchased KRDU last week. Is there an update that should get? Is there a place for updates for each site (I have 6 DLC's). Sorry if this has been asked before. Thank you for the community for helping newbees.
  7. New to Tower3D Pro - Want to thank you and your team for the effort on keeping up with requests, and releasing fantastic products.  Look forward to future releases.

  8. I am fairly new to Tower3d PRO - I have been reading the forums. I pulled data from the tower3d.rec file, and put it in a chart. The advanced users will scoff, but I needed a guide so I could find all the commands that are recognized. Hopefully it will help newbees like me. I wanted to know how to "Vacate Runway". If this list exists somewhere else, please let me know. Great Simulation - First and Best Voice Command SIM I have ever used. I have Tower3d Pro and am on 6 DLC Airports Tower_Voice_CMDS.txt
  9. Here is the link for the "TOOLS" that adds new voice commands:
  10. I saw a posting that someone wrote a mod that added additional commands to the Voice Commands. Not sure if those are authorized or not. It was mostly taxi instructions and the lot. Also I have been reading about custom schedules. Since I love GA aircraft, I was thinking to loading schedules for GA aircraft, instead of the "BIG TIN" Airline aircraft.
  11. Have Tower3D Pro - Love the game. I have bought airports - Having the best time of my life. Do you ever allow Outside Beta-Testers? I would love to help improve the product (Not that the product needs must improvement) - I hear that some runways and/or gates don't work. I am sure as with any software-product, you beta-test until you feel it is "GOOD ENOUGH" for commercial sale. Just wondering. Also I plan to add the command.mod file, to allow additional features to be used. I made a suggestion for more GA/Military traffic. Is there one Airport that has more GA and/or Military traffic? Thank you for a wonderful product.
  12. New to Tower3d PRO - Have used other sims. 1. More GA traffic - Love it when I can see local small aircraft - Pushing "BIG TIN" is fun, but love the little guys 2. How about Military Traffic.. Would be fun for a fighter, C5, C130, etc. Probably more an ART thing 3. Select Time of Year - Summer vs. Winter traffic - shorted daylight hours 4. Speak back from Landing Traffic - Sometimes we forget a plane landed - need to move them off runway 5. Trouble moving aircraft to alternative runways - especially blocked or busy runways 6. How about discount for multiple Airport packages (I have bought 3 already) 7. Simulated Emergency (Engine out, blown tire, pilot injured) 8. Ability to assign different "HOT KEY" to Voice Command - Left Shift is not always convenient (Mouse Click, Right Click, etc) 9. Notify is a plane is in "LINE UP AND WAIT" mode - letting us know. (Gets busy with one-man operation) or waiting for "CONTINUE TAXI" 10. If there any talk about having a Central Server which can connect 2 or more users for Multi-user. I have no-one I can use a Multi. I can open my router ports to use networking to facilitate multiple users. 11. Is there any way to SECTOR the runway, so that you only handle "WEST TRAFFIC" or "NORTH TRAFFIC" Best Simulation I have used...Love the Voice Commands. Was overwhelmed by traffic on KDFW -
