    I'm Having Trouble With Real Traffic for EGKK

    If you still have your original purchase email with download link, try that first. Every time a new add-on is released, you need to redownload RT, as they update it with traffic for the new airports.

    They certainly do have variety. For me however, the real pleasure of controlling different airports in this game are the actual airport layouts. Heathrow's is pretty unique. From a quick overhead glance, one might just see yet another large airport with two parallel runways in the spirit of EDDM; there is a lot more to it, however. On the one hand, it has a two-way perimeter taxiway, like KJFK, which is very good at keeping planes on the ground out of each others' ways. On the other hand, it has a fascinating terminal layout that seems to combine the parallel concourse layout of KATL (terminal 5/2) with a sprawling central hub system (terminal 3) more akin to KORD or EHAM, and then throws in an additional satellite terminal (4). for good measure. This would make it a very worthy addon. Andrew

    I do hope so. I get the feeling that EGKK has been pretty popular. I can only imagine that the demand for EGLL would be even greater. Andrew

    Updates for tower 3d Pro

    Vic you are clearly a skilled politician who knows how to answer the tough questions. Have you considered running for public office? I would ask if you could confirm that development has begun, but I won't since I am sure that you would answer, "That depends upon what the meaning of 'development' is." 🙂 Andrew

    Updates for tower 3d Pro

    Sorry, Craig. Did not mean to start a fire. I may have been too specific/presumptuous/optimistic in my statement. Probably I should have said "planning stages." My point was that Vic has repeatedly, and over a long period of time, iterated that FeelThere firmly plans on developing a new version. Ariel has also recently made sevearal mentions of adding users' requests for new features to a planning list. Andrew

    Updates for tower 3d Pro

    If you mean software updates, not really. The product was patched several times, but development is now considered complete. A new version is said to be in the very early stages of development. However, paid new add-ons are being released every month or two. Vancouver (CYVR) is expected in the very near future, with Dubai and Melbourne to follow. Andrew

    I've heard of rumours of an edited "pushback" code

    Open you main Tower 3D folder. Open the file Tower3D.rec Add the following text in the logical spot: #airplane1; PUSHBACK APPROVED, EXPECT RUNWAY ;#runway1; VIA ;#taxiway1;#taxiway2;#taxiway3;#taxiway4;#taxiway5;#taxiway6 #airplane1; PUSHBACK APPROVED, EXPECT RUNWAY ;#runway1; AT ;#taxiway1 #airplane1; PUSHBACK APPROVED, EXPECT RUNWAY ;#runway1; AT ;#taxiway1; VIA ;#taxiway2;#taxiway3;#taxiway4;#taxiway5;#taxiway6 If desired, you may also add one more: #airplane1; RUNWAY ;#runway1; VIA ;#taxiway2;#taxiway3;#taxiway4;#taxiway5;#taxiway6   It gets rid of the cumbersome "Delta 2143, Runway 26L. Taxi via Echo." Now you can just say "Delta 2143, Runway 26L via Echo." To me, at least, this is much more intuitive. Enjoy Andrew

    KJFK RC Update

    Exactly. The individual RC packs are customized to represent the airline/airframe inventory of specific airports, but they frequently overlap with other airports. If, for example, you own the packs for, EDDM and EGKK, then you will have pretty good coverage for LEBL even if you do not buy its dedicated RC pack. Andrew
  10. To be fair though, it should be possible to use it in the game, and this does appear to be a bug and not deliberate on the part of Feel There. After all, it appears that 26R was intended to be functional, since it shows up as a select-able active runway in the menu when starting the game. Andrew

    Atl big fix

    Iv'e been asking for this for nearly two years. KATL could be a great add-on if they would fix 3-4 items holding it back. This was one of the first add-ons released, and many other airports have been patched, some multiple times, but for some reason, KATL never seems to get a turn. It's a real shame. Andrew

    EGKK Users - plz reply

    I'll bite. It is a relatively small airport, but the terminal/taxiway layout is complex enough to be interesting, and makes for a nice flow to and from the runway. Yes it actually is possible to shoot gaps, within reason. The first exit seems well positioned to get planes off the runway with reasonable efficiency. Andrew
  13. Glad to see that you have worked out a practical way to do that. If you are looking for a challenge, perhaps you could try something similar with KSFO? That airport has the biggest spacing problem of any available. Andrew
  14. Click on the link you just posted. After the new page opens, click on the "Download" button in the upper right corner of the page. No need to sign in if you are downloading direct to your PC. Andrew
  15. Nice job Joe!. Just had a great session at 07:00. As you said departures and arrivals very well space. Andrew
