  1. Not sure if this will go anywhere, but why not ask. Besides, 3D is all about pleasing the eye isn't it? Personally, I'd like to see Real Color stay up with the times and not be totally retro. As a result, what new liveries (I'm talking common and not special one-offs) would you like to see incorporated into Real Color? Here's a few off the top of my head: Spirit - yellow livery, introduced in 2014 ... would like to see at least one airplane type in the new livery especially when it's common to see planes in all three liveries at my local airport Alaska - redesigned livery was unveiled in Jan 2016 Air Canada - new livery was unveiled about the time Pro came out Rouge - Off topic, but need a RT fix. Their callsign is AIR CANADA instead of ROUGE. Swiss - what we have in the sim is the old "Swiss Air" brand if I'm not mistaken Frontier - new livery was introduced around the same time as Spirit in 2014. Craig PS - Good job on Frontier. I had it on my list (notice the strikeout) but then realized the A320 and A321 had the new livery while only the A319 is still in the "old" livery, which is probably realistic enough.

    Real Color "Survey" - New Liveries?

    Yep, this got no traction back in 2017 while now it seems there is an interest with Gabor seeming to be open to ideas like these. Maybe I was ahead of my time. 😉 Sadly, though, I really don't care anymore. 😢

    NEO AIRCRAFT - Community Input Required

    Yes, terminal/gate assignments in the Tower series thus far has been less than satisfying. The gate assignment granularity you are seeing at EGKK is similar to what was delivered in Tower!2011. As a matter of fact, all the Tower!2011 airports that have also been released in Tower!3D share very similar bland terminal definitions. However, with Tower!2011 we had the ability to customize airports (and airplanes) which I took advantage of to make more realistic terminal assignments down to the gate level if necessary. Sadly, we lost this modding feature with Tower!3D. Bringing back modding features is definitely on the wishlist for the oft-mentioned but who knows when next version.
  4. Yes it is updated in game - introduced in RC for KMCO. Check out this topic for more info: https://forum.simflight.com/topic/85409-new-liveries-with-kmco

    Tower 3d pro updates

    If/when RT or RC are updated, you have to re-download and re-install. If you bought them through feelthere or atcsuite, look for your original confirmation email for the download links.
  6. You contradicted yourself. You say it's not used and then describe when it is used. Bottom line - 26R is a valid runway and should be treated as such. If the developers implemented it to be used as a taxiway only then that should be made clear.
  7. @battlehawk77 created a custom schedule, not the airport. @707FAN, what do you expect him to do?

    NEO AIRCRAFT - Community Input Required

    Not arguing with you and totally agree about the release of the next version. I'm assuming 2020-2021 at this point. With that said, these RC updates will take time ... maybe 3-4 airports a year max. Since LAX has already been done I'm not sure it would be in the rotation for quite awhile. Based on that assumption, I shutter to think we'd have an RC update for KLAX before a new version of Tower.

    Another LAX release? I hope not!

    Throw us a bone Vic...

    So, what classes did you say you were taking in college? 😍

    Another reason why progressive taxi is needed. Anything over 6 taxiways doesn’t seem realistic or even repeatable by a pilot.

    Speech recognition Approach Command

    FeelThere stopped updating T3D Pro a little over a year after its release. Tracon!2012 is 7+ years old. You're definitely not going to get an update in this version and there has been no talk of any future versions.
  13. crbascott

    SPEECH ISSUES

    No disagreement at all. Cortana is not relevant to the game - as mentioned before it is just to verify that voice recognition works on your system. I never use Cortana on my system - so it is off. You need to have voice recognition open/available, but for best results while playing the game you should set the status to "Off: Do not listen to anything I say". You should also spend some time doing Speech Recognition Voice Training at some point.

    Atl big fix

    There you go guys ... exactly the answer you were looking for. 🤦‍♂️

    noob on schedule customizing

    Using a single arrival runway it is roughly one minute and 30 seconds - the sim enforces 5nm separation between arrivals (at the initial DBRITE appearance). As a result, in my experience the maximum number of arrivals you'll see in a hour using a single arrival runway is roughly 42-45.

    noob on schedule customizing

    I wouldn't say correctly, but it is somewhat close. Fixing gate definitions and other issues are definitely something needed in the next version.

    noob on schedule customizing

    Actually what happens in the sim engine is slightly different than what @ac455 describes above. Arrivals do not get deleted - the "no free terminal" error just means that at this point in time there is no gate available. The engine will continuously check (originally it was every 15 minutes but was improved to check every minute or two) to see if a gate frees up. If you look at a log file, this is evidenced by the many "no free terminal" messages for the same flight. If/when a gate becomes available, the arrival will spawn. After you press start (and not at pushback) is when the internal tracon (as FT likes to call it) determines the departure scenarios for each flight in the schedule (up to 8 hours). If there are not enough gates available to handle all the departures, then a departure could get dropped and you'll see a message like "Airplane dropped, no declared terminal". A departure could also never spawn if the tracon makes it dependent on an incoming arrival. You'll see these flights in the log file labelled as "Restarter airplanes". Again, this is done in the loading process so you'll see this "early" in the log file. The more flights that are loaded at the beginning the bigger the chance for some to not appear. That is why I was the first custom schedule maker to provide schedule snippets to combat this issue. Now most other custom schedule makers do the same whether they call them snippets or not. As they say, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". Also, as an FYI, you do not need to run tower.bat to get a log file. After your session you'll find a log file called output_log.txt in the tower3d_Data folder.

    Tower 3d pro updates

    You need one or more Real Color packages if you want realistic liveries.
  19. There have been a few folks here on the forum and on the Discord server who have had issues with RT for Tracon now that Tracon!2012 SE has been released on Steam. We've determined that he current installer (Tracon2012rt-sp2.exe) does not install the very important schedule.txt file. I believe the included zip file also has a RT for Tower!2011 installer, but it doesn't install the schedule.txt file either. We's appreciate this being looked into. Thanks! Craig

    Tower 3d pro updates

    What version of Real Traffic do you have? Do you have A Real Color package? You need both for realistic liveries.

    Real Traffic for Tracon!2012 - Installer Issue

    @TKBuffalo - I have that "tit" file on my machine too and it looks like the RT schedule. You'll need to install the RT files though for everything to work correctly.

    Real Traffic for Tracon!2012 - Installer Issue

    @TKBuffalo - I think if you copy and rename it to schedule.txt you may have what you need.

    Speech recognition Approach Command

    @pete_agreatguy - I'm going to disagree with you. The above command is not really applicable to a Tower controller as it is something that would be issued by the final approach controller. @raad - Tracon!2012 requires a plane to be within 30 degrees of the runway heading in order to accept the ILS approach. So based on that I would assume that's why FT implemented these as separate commands. I'm not aware of way to edit/customize commands.

    SP2 FOR TOWER!3D PRO HAS BEEN RELEASED

    This SP2 topic is an old post. FeelThere is not doing service packs for the base engine any more - stopped almost a year ago.
  25. Now that KJFK has been chosen by the community for the next RC pack to receive an update from Nyerges Design, we must put together a list of liveries that we would like to see added. Requests must be for "standard" liveries and not one-off special liveries. To be clear, these are only requests. Nyerges Design has the right to choose what will or will not be included in the update. To verify your livery doesn't already exist for KJFK, please use the Master List maintained by @Pedantic G found on the forum at https://forum.simflight.com/topic/85934-tower-3d-pro-real-colorsaircraft-master-list-by-airport/. To submit your request, please use the following format. Only one livery per post please. Airline (ICAO/IATA)1: Aircraft Type (ICAO)1: FlightNumber1: Link2: Other RC3: The above is fairly self explanatory and is being included in order to prove that a real flight for the livery pertains to the airport. 1Airline, aircraft, and flight number are required. Real Traffic files can be used to help supply the valid codes. Airline codes are included in kjfk_airlines.txt. Existing aircraft types can be found by looking at kjfk_airplanes.txt. Additionally, new/existing ICAO designators can be found several places on the web. 2It is recommended to provide a link to an actual flight using the livery from a valid source (ex: FlightAware, FlightRadar24, etc.) to help prove the legitimacy of your request. 3Other RC is not required but helpful to tell Nyerges Design that this livery already exists at one or more other airports, but is not included with KJFK. If you plan to submit more than five (5) livery requests, you are welcome to use the attached spreadsheet. The fields and requirements are the same. Please keep this topic clean and post legitimate requests only. There is no need to post a duplicate if someone has already posted a desired livery. If you have any questions, feel free to send a direct message to @crbascott. The deadline for request submissions is October 21, 2018 at 23:59:59 UTC. After the deadline, a consolidated list of validated requests will be provided to Nyerges Design. RC_KJFK_Livery_Requests.xlsx
