  1. Yep, sadly with the game's flaws you have to sacrifice reality for playability. That's why what I used to think was a sim is now just a game.
  2. Yep, they are only operating on the east side right now due to the lower traffic levels. Actually, If you want to try and replicate real life this is from the KDFW D-ATIS - "ALL ACFT LNDG RWY 17C EXIT LEFT AT P2". They take the high speed exit at P2 and then take the P, ES, JS loop. Not sure if the game will handle this left exit very well though.Plus, this game doesn't recognize a high speed exit as all planes come to a stop. Regarding 17L landings, it would be best to post a log file and then we can determine where the issue is and if there is a possible solution. More than likely it is a bug. I have my doubts it will get fixed but if it's airport related maybe there's a slim chance. During the interim you could try just issuing a TAXI TO TAMP VIA ER command and see what route it draws. Then as it approaches P, try sending it around the loop.
  3. Yes - anyone and everyone with the non-Steam version has this issue.
  4. For each Real Color pack there are two files. So, no, don't remove either one of them. For KPHL, you are looking for airplanes_texpack02 and airplanes_texpack02.manifest. Note: the number in the filename could just be 2 instead of 02.
  5. Also, you never want to buy from atcsuite.com because you always have to pay full price. Feelthere.com has occasional sales. Caveat emptor.
  6. Heathrow or the next version? Which one would you really like to see?
  7. Yep, there's a lot of unrealistic workarounds one can do. But as these have kept keep adding up what was once a simulation has become just a game. Until something changes? What is possibly going to change?
  8. If you start a session at 05:00, the game looks back approximately 15 minutes to find a departure. If there are no departures between 04:45 and 05:00 it then fast forwards to the first departure. So, to directly answer your question, nothing happens between 05:00 and 05:50.
  9. @EliGrim My statement was definitely not addressed to you. As @Pedantic G mentioned, I was referring to the current state of air travel. My stance on community developed freeware schedules/tools is “you get what you get and don’t throw a fit”. So, what you do and when you do it is is totally up to you and you should not be pressured. Sadly, there are members that aren’t appreciate of what people do in their spare time. I’m definitely not one of those, and although I’m disappointed you would think I would call you out, I’m going to chalk it up as a translation issue.
  10. @Braf123456 - its amazing what you can learn when you pay attention. @mjkerr - Braf didn’t include the game in the subject line (who pays attention to forum rules anyway) but he’s talking about T!3D which always starts with a departure. Since you mention Heathrow, your experience must be from T!2011 which in this case is not applicable.
  11. Actually now that I think about it, @EliGrim's schedule builder tool might be the best option until traffic volumes return to normal. Although, sadly, this may take much longer than we'd all like.
  12. He better had started on it a few months ago, because using current flight schedules is going to suck! Today, EKCH only had 27 departures and 27 arrivals for the whole day according to FlightAware.
  13. Let's hope there's enough air traffic at some point to make building realistic custom schedules a worthwhile effort.
  14. Not questioning the flights - just the timing/duration. A 1 hour 50 minute "round trip" is not possible.
  15. Are you sure you are downloading and saving it in the correct location? For Steam, the default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Tower 3D Pro\Extensions\Airfields\OMDB For non-Steam, the default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\FeelThere\Tower!3D Pro\Extensions\Airfields\OMDB If your installed location is different, you'll need to find your Tower root directory and go from there.
