  1. It would also be very interesting to know whether we can select from multiple viewpoints around the airport, or even create our own. Andrew
  2. Good choice. I have heard before that the wind leaving a sonic boom in its wake is a tell tale sign that the airspace needs to be cleared. Andrew
  3. Sorry to hear that. They either need to quit making them, or put their hearts back into. EGLL was spectacular, but since them the new airports have really gone down hill. Andrew
  4. Glad it worked for you. How do you like the airport. From the video, it looks like a nice, complex taxiway layout, but it also seemed to have a rather bleak appearance (even by Tower 3D standards). It that how it comes across to you? Andrew
  5. Click the "add to cart" button one time, then look down in the lower right corner of the screen and you will see a shopping cart symbol; click on that and it will take you to checkout. Very convoluted, but I guess that's how it works now. Enjoy. Andrew
  6. The bigger question is where things stand with the next version of Tower!. I would deduce that their relative silence in the last couple of months, combined with the slower pace of new DLC releases, means that they are "heads down" in the nitty gritty of completing it. Time will tell, I supose, even if Vic does not 😉 Andrew
  7. Not small by volume, but compact by scale, like KLGA. This sort of airport works very well, in my opinion. The cramped space makes for lots of fun taxi puzzles to work out. Andrew
  8. Wonderful news. Welcome back! Andrew
  9. I believe that Vic said Nyerges is working on something, but they have not said what. To my knowledge, FeelThere has yet to state if what else they have in work. Andrew
  10. As stated above, be sure to PM EliGrim Andrew
  11. Thank you!!! Problem solved in under 30 seconds. My son has been plugging a Nintendo Pro Controller into the PC for his Steam games and leaving it there. Unplugging it eliminated the issue. Feels good to solve something so easily. Glad I did not reinstall Windows. Andrew
  12. Well, the problem is back. Same as before. It affects the airport selection menu, and the start time selection. Cannot think of anything I did differently that would explain why the problem disappeared for a day, and then reappeared. If problems the website, as suggested above, are the issue, I guess that could explain it, though I do not grasp how the website configuration could affect menus in the game. For now, I'm just leaving it set on EGLL, but changing the time is a pain. Is anyone else experiencing this? I do not see this in any other game or software that I use. Andrew
  13. In the below referenced post, EliGrim said he would consider adding EGLL to Schedule Builder if at least 11 people PM him (EliGrim) requesting this. As I said, he will consider it; it is not a promise. Regardless, it is generous of him to even go that far, and if anyone else would like to see this happen, this is probably your only opportunity. Some time ago, he posted that he would cease adding airports to the builder, with the possible exception of EHAM should that ever be added. I brought up the idea to him of adding EGLL simply because this particular airport is so iconic to so many people, and it would really be nice to have a simple way to generate and customize schedules for it, especially with Schedule Builder's integration of Nyerges' Retro pack liveries. Anyway, please let him know if you agree. Andrew
  14. Interesting. I would have never put that together. Hopefully, its all over for good now. Andrew
  15. So far, it is a thing of beauty. Very much worth the long wait. Andrew
  16. Okay, now the problem seems to have gone away. I did not change anything that I am aware of, just left the computer running while doing other things. Now I am back and everything is back to normal. The only thing I can think of that is different is I cleared out some files from One Drive, but I do not see what that would have to do with TD!3. No files there were related to it. Weird. Andrew
  17. Well, I did not uninstall EGLL specifically, but I did uninstall Tower 3D Pro and moved the folders with the airports out of the T3D folder to my desktop temporarily. Then I reinstalled T3DPro and ran it vanilla with no add-ons, and got the same result. Then I moved the folders back in. I after many attempts, I did manage to select EGLL, and play it; it worked fine; beautiful airport. However, if I try to change airports, I basically just get a random one. I can find no way to control it. Very frustrating. Starting to think I will have to reinstall Windows 10, but I really dread that. Any ideas what could cause an effect like this? Andrew
  18. Something strange is going on with my PC and Tower!3D Pro. I bought the new EGLL and installed it as usual. Then I noticed that the desktop icon for it had disappeared (I do not recall if it was there immediately before installing, but It was definitely there the last time I ran the game a few days ago. I thought that was strange, but moved on and launched Tower 3D Pro from the folder where it is installed. It came up normally, but when I tried to select an airport, I am unable to. The drop down list seems to flicker when I select it, and I end up with a random airport from near the top of the list, usually one of the default airports (definitely no way to get down to EGLL which I would very much like to do). The runways selection also flickers when I click on it, but is not as bad and I am able to make selections. The drop down menus at the top (like settings etc.) seem to work fine. If I run the selected airport, it seems the game seems to work fine. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling and still get the same thing. Any ideas what's going on? Never seen it in 2+ years of playing this game. Other software on my machine seems to run fine. I am running Win 10 on a PC that I bought about a month ago. Andrew
  19. I know that you said you were done adding airports to Schedule Builder, but I was wondering if you might give consideration, in the spirit of the holidays, to adding the newly released EGLL. I know it's not EHAM, but it is an airport that many here have been anticipating for years. Either way, I very much appreciate you contribution to our hobby, It has added much enjoyment. Best wishes, Andrew
  20. EGLL just popped out of the pipeline. Go get it! Andrew
  21. It has been inspiring to watch this site/app grow over the last several months. Your contribution is a wonderful addition to Tower 3D, benefiting both the end users, and the developers as well (I am sure that quite a few of us will purchase the Retro Pack because you gave us an easy way to use it with every airport). Thank you for this generous gift, and congratulations on reaching 1.0! Andrew Jones
  22. No arguments there at all. I just meant that I would not want decorative eye candy to take away resources from the functional variety. Andrew
  23. Keep in mind that the current version is rather limited in its ability to handle this kind of thing. Notice that most of the included skyline are relatively generic and simplified. Vic has stated that adding more tend to have a big impact on performance. Perhaps the next version will be different in that regard, though personally I would prefer they keep their focus on the actual game functionality rather than on eye candy. Andrew
