    Looks awesome! I got Tower3DPro only a few days ago and am really enjoying it.

    Can we expect different controlling positions (tower/ground/clearance) with AI to take over the positions we didn't choose?

    Unfortunately we are not there yet to answer questions. We hope to announce the project officially in the not too distant future. The best way to get the news is by signing up to our newsletter (it's also a good idea because we sometimes run some exclusive newsletter only sales too).

    I think the electronic flight strips are flexible and can be customized by each facility so I don't think you'll see just one FAA/European version. If you do a search, you'll see several companies offering EFS solutions. Hopefully, @FeelThere will implement a configuration that is sensibly feature rich after researching the technology available today.  

    Additionally, one of the challenges for @FeelThere in this version is the battle between screen real estate and functionality. From the videos, the EFS displays are a full screen themselves. Not an issue for those of us who have multiple monitors. Hopefully, @FeelThere will provide appropriate functionality based on available screen real estate (versus designing everything with the single screen user in mind). 

    We are testing a few solutions for this. @crbascott is right; this is a full screen application itself so we have to come up with something that works on single and multi monitors as well. We have something that will likely solve it but that feature is among the ones that we will try to keep secret for a while 🙂

  3. Dear Folks,

     

    We just released the SP2 for the EMB v3.
    Existing customers can download their plane using the same link they received during the purchase. If your link is blocked (most of the time it's caused by the anti fraud system) please contact BMT Micro and sort it out with them. 3rd party resellers will receive the new files in the upcoming days.

    Besides of many small issues the main topics to address by the SP are:
    -AT behaviour at speed constraints
    -VNAV descend speed problems
    -several visual bugs
    -P3D5 installer -note: the glass effect wont be installed for P3D5, you need to do that manually from A2A's website-

    Please leave this announcement without comments.

     

    Thank you

  4. I fully agree. For racing I used VR and now I could hardly race without VR (I really wish I would have time for that thought)... I tried VR for flying and while it was very close to the real thing, I couldn't keep flying that way for the reasons above; I had to find keyboard commands, my throttles, etc. So IF we add it for Tower I think I will be the first main tester and for surely (anyone, wink, wink) come up with some solution where you can keep the goggles on and no need to peak out to the keyboard.
    There are several things we keep hiding about the next Tower development but one of the major thing is to support such a hand free experiences.

    Interesting discussion, please keep it coming.

  5. Interesting thoughts. I so wish I could post a screenshot of a current version (indeed our marketing team would remove me from my position for sure) 🙂
    We are not there yet to let me comment resolution, etc, but VR is a very possible option. More and more simmers are using it and once you try it there is no return. Indeed it shouldn't make the non VR users less important so we will try to make both version as best as possible.
    Re: wish list. I think I posted it somewhere some statistic about the fact, majority of the requests made our list and most of them got high importance in our internal to-do list.

    Thank you so much Folks

    Totally agree and vote for functionality over graphics “eye candy” especially since we don’t know yet what the minimum and recommended computer requirements are going to be for Tower XX.  Some of us that are not gamers may not have the higher dollar computer equipment (processor, graphics card, etc.) that would be needed to support intense graphics at the possible cost of the simulation's functionality or slowing down the simulation.  As an ex-military controller I love the game for its challenging game play therefore super graphics are not all that important to me.  In fact, I usually don’t have much time to look at the graphics in detail since I’m normally concentrating on the ADIRS and DBRITE most of the time (normally I try to keep myself pushed to the limit of my controller abilities).  I further believe the new game should be developed on the basis of it being an actual ATC simulation and not just another video game.

    Indeed it has an "actual ATC simulation" version however with a pricetag of an actual ATC simulator 🙂 
    However I see your point. We will try to make the new version scalable so lower end computers can hopefully run it.

    CYYZ came out for tower 2011. Is there a possibility that we will see it before they come up with the next version? I hope so. It's my favorite airport.

    It really depends how fast can we crank out the currently developed airports and how's next Tower will come along.

    Oh Vic,

    Now you have ruined the wildly incorrect guessing game some like to play! 🤣

     

    You know me; sometimes I just pop up and ruin the game 🙂 Possibly I'm not the most popular kid around the block 🙂

    I don't know how this forum works as I'm fairly new but on other game forums I've been on, most members would never allow facts to interfere with speculation. 😀

    Welcome to our forum. This forum is a bit different from other forums. Sometimes you will see us fighting on things like classmates, but most of the times this is a very friendly place. 18 years ago when we launched our group called FeelThere, the community was there to help us and we are trying to be here for the community as well. We don't try to act like "big guys" rather engage into friendly conversation and games. You will see lots of teasing, sometimes personal jokes as well as many of us know each other for a very long time.

    Please be part of us.

     

    Thank you

  10. Dear Folks,

    Thank you for the excitement, it means a lot to us.
    From us the next is KEWR and KIAD, EGLL in the pipeline and one surprise airport ( 😉 ). KORD is prepared for the next version as this current version likely could not handle it. As far as we know Gabor is working 2 interesting airports as well. 

    Thank you
