    New Airports For Tower 3D Pro

    I have said it many times and will probably add it again when time comes for suggestions. Please, please add better surporit for GA airplanes. Traffic patterns and such. Its one thing to have the big guys come in one after the other on a straight approach angle. Basically its all about "Cleared to land" and "taxi to parking". Thats not how it works on many airports, at least not the small and medium sized ones. You have Cessna 172s and Pipers Cherokees coming in from all angles that you need to calculate for a good flow and not to mention the patterns for traffic doing T&G. Thats where the fun begins and situations many controllers need to face every day. I admit perhaps this is nothing that happends on the worlds largest airport like KSEA, KLAX or Heathrow etc but on so many other airports. Mike
  2. Hi I would like to thank the team for a great Tower Product, I have had many hours of fun controlling, a huge step forward in ATC simulators. I just want to know if you will ever create a smaller single runway airport with more mixed traffic. At present I have a hard time to find motivation to control LAX or LAS by myself. A single controller for any of these airports would never happend in real Life so that puts me of a bit realism wise :) I hope next version of Tower 3D will expand even further in realism. Personally I would prefer smaller airports with much less traffic but much more features like gate assignments, controlling GA Aircraft on traffic patterns and such. Mike

    Pilot voices

    Oh, so you can have additional voices in Tower3D as long as you run Windows 10? Thats great news if true, I have long requested this feature. I agree it gets a little boring after a while with the same default voices and it just seem like an easy fix. I thought this was a limitation in Tower3D not a limitation in Windows version. Can someone confirm this and I will switch operating system at once to Windows 10. I own several Ivona voices and they would really add to the immersion. Mike

    With Tracon!2012, do you still need to vector aircraft on a 20 dregree or so angle towards the ILS approach before handing them off to tower? I beleive in real life for large commercial aircraft they dont really vector traffic that way, I have LAX long incoming arrivals from the east in mind. Please correct me if I´m wrong. Mike

    There are T&G aircraft in Tower since 2011?? I have never seen that. Could it be that its not part of the Nyerges real world schedule? I have only every played Tower with it. Mike

    Hi all I listened to some real world live ATC and realised civil ATC controllers deal with a lot more rotor wings than I imagined. Could really be a nice feature to introduce helicopters and all the challenges that brings to the next version of Tower3D. This in addition to local flights, T&G and overflights non of which I have seen in the present version would be very cool. Mike

    Would also be interesting to know what airport / airports we can expect for Tower 3D in the near future.

    Vic, you got the face only a mother can love :) hope you're not up to any monkey business with those Tower 3D addon airports. Mike

    Honolulu Tracon 2012

    Anyone tried the Honolulu addon for Tracon? I just got it yesterday and am trying to figure out a good strategy. Obviously its both PHNL and Molokai. - Aircraft landing Molokai, should they be directed towards a fix for ILS clearance rwy 5? cant get them to accept any ILS or Visual approach clearance, a least not for rwy 5. - Aircraft departing PHNL towards the mainland US I guess 16000 feet clearance is about right and have them fly their complete SID. Once reachng altitude I just hand them over to Honolulu center? - Aicraft departing PHNL towards any of the other Hawaii islands, about what altitude should they be cleared? I guess like 8000 or so? If so I guess they should remain on your frequency unti leaving the airspace boundy? Any good stratefy for them? Thanks for any help. Mike

    Russellfire, you are not the only one with requests in this crowd. What if everyone with an airport they want would keep bending Vics and the teams ears, they would have no ears left to listen to our request with :) just a thought..

    Command bar to 2nd monitor?

    Hi Cant figure out how to move the command bar to my second monitor. Radars and strips no problem but what about the command bar? Would be nice to have my primary monitor without anything but the actual Tower view. Mike

    Now that SP2 is out...

    Vic for sure a smaller airport, any smaller airport. Browsing through the Tower 2011 offerings I really like Key West. the only problem is that it might be too small with too few aircraft movements. It sure needs some T&G and local operation to be entertaining enough. If Key West is not an option for some reason then please do an airport like Raleigh, Honolulu or Portland, although big in size at least they are somewhat manageable for one person. Come to think of it, Raleigh migh be the perfect option! My vote is for Raleigh! :) Mike

    [Tower!3D Pro] Manual and question

    When an arriving aircraft call you up, do you normally clear them to land right away. I dont know if this is correct procedure, but when they call me up I tell them "XXX enter final RWY XX" just so they know I am there on the freq but I cant clear them to land so early on in their approach. Normally in real life I guess your would say something like "XXX contuinue approach" and later on when they are closer to the airport and you know its clear you would clear them to land. I listen to KSAN live ATC the other day and it actually seem like the controller clears them to land basically right after beeing called upon every time, I dont understand this, if you clear someone to land can you minutes later clear another aircraft to takeoff on the same runway? In other words can you have a cleared for takeoff and cleared to land valid at the same time on the same runway as long as their is correct separation? Mike

    Now that SP2 is out...

    Cant understand how you guys manage large airports like that. KSAN works ok for me controlling both ground and tower but everything above that just jeopardize "safety" too much for a one man show, I guess thats why they have more than one controller at larger airports IRL. Tried KLAX yesterday and four runways with 100% traffic, no way :) So pleeeeease Vic just one mid size payware addon airport in the future is all I ask for to compliment all those beasts of airports you talked about previously like KATL and KLAS. Mind you, I will throw in a bag of chips and a beer of your choise to sweeten the deal, call it a bribe if you will :) Now did I hear KSNA :) ;) Mike

    Graphics settings

    I unchecked the "Depth of filed", fantastic result the surrounding is sharp even when the camera moves :) The only graphical issue for me now are the aircraft textures. I have the real color and real traffic addons and those airline logos are not that very sharp at least not on my system, and the aircraft themself look kind of blurry as well. Has anyone played around with any Nvidia setting outside of Tower3D itself? Mike
