  1. Hello again Controllers! Looks like we got an SP for KPHX so how about we celebrate with a new 7 day schedule? Yes, 7 days of fun and action instead of just an old boring one day schedule. πŸ˜‰ As always, my schedules are real and based on downloaded information from FlightAware. To avoid duplicate flight number issues a few flight numbers were changed, but no animals were harmed in the making of the schedules. In addition to busier than RT commercial traffic, I have included busier than RT GA traffic also. The chart below illustrates the day-by-day commercial and GA traffic included in the daily schedules. I've also created a custom terminal file that should more accurately represent the gates and terminals used at KPHX. Additionally, I've included updated airlines and airports files - primarily to handle the widespread GA traffic. And what is a standard feature for my custom schedules, I've included snippet files for each day - optimized schedule files containing 3 hours of flights from the full schedule. For example, the snippet optimized for a 10:00 session start contains flights for the hours of 09, 10, and 11. What I've seen and experienced is that using a full day's schedule (Real Traffic or custom) causes flights to be dropped because of gate availability and delayed due to "no free terminal". By reducing the number of hours in the schedule, you eliminate the dropped flights and get a richer more realistic flight volume experience. Interesting flights to/from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport include Rouge service to Canada, Condor twice-weekly service to Frankfurt, and of course the British Airways service to London. Additionally, there is a charter flight with an ICAO of JNY and a callsign of ROCK BAND. I challenge you to not sing Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin' when this plane shows up on the radar! 😍 Attached to bottom of this post you'll find a zip file called kphx_crbascott.zip that contains: Common files to be used for each of the 7 days: Updated terminal file - kphx_terminal.txt Updated airlines file - kphx_airlines.txt Updated airports file - kphx_airports.txt Reference file for GA/charter airlines included in GA traffic - charter_airlines.txt 7 folders containing the daily schedule files (13-Sunday, 14-Monday, 15-Tuesday, 16-Wednesday, 17-Thursday, 18-Friday, 19-Saturday). Within each folder you will find: Full custom schedule file for that day - kphx_schedule.txt Full GA traffic file for that day - kphx_gaandlocaltraffic.txt Folders containing snippet schedule files (both commercial and GA) for the hours 06 thru 22. I'd recommend unzipping kphx_crbascott.zip into your KPHX folder. It will create a crbascott sub-folder with the above mentioned contents. As always, please remember to backup your original Real Traffic files - current version is sp6v7. Feel free to contact me on this forum or Discord with questions, comments, and/or issues. ENJOY!!

  2. Glad you enjoyed it @pkorkala - still holding up after a year plus, good to hear!

    When did they start selling that? Seems a little redundant don't you think?!? πŸ˜€

    Tower3dPro - Runway alert on Intersection Departure

    Bottom-line this is another area that needs addressing in the next version as the current logic (non-programmed or bugged, take your pick) negatively impacts using real life operations at airports with intersecting runways - KLAS and KJFK are prime examples.

    Lol, no worries - had a feeling something like that was going on.

    Do you have a log file? Would love to see how the terminal file worked.

    Issues will only arise depending on the starting time you select and you must not have used the terminal file.
  8. I'm not seeing a BN2 in your tist_airplanes.txt file on Dropbox.
  9. The problem is that the schedule contains an airplane type of BN2 that does not exist in Real Traffic. It needs to be changed to BNI or BNT.

    KATL Real Traffic - No Arrivals @ 20:00?

    I brought this issue up over 2 years ago. Unfortunately, KATL needs fixes by both FeelThere and Nyerges Design but has not been touched since it was released.

    Take your time Braf - give it a good long look over. If you're familiar with Excel I'd recommend doing some validation (using VLOOKUP or similar functions) to make sure all your airplane types, airlines, airports, etc. are valid. Additionally, name the files per required to avoid user confusion. Good luck!

    Cdg schedule

    Looks like @Braf123456 has removed the schedule/files to do some needed cleanup work. The latest problem is another invalid plane type in the schedule - 722. I'd recommend using RT for now.

    This log shows you are still using Braf's terminal file. Since his is flawed, you must you the RT terminal file.

    Tower3D. How to manage arrival rush

    Actually, it is realistic under FAA rules. It is covered in FAA JO Order 7110.65 under section 3-10-6, Anticipating Separation. Landing clearance to succeeding aircraft in a landing sequence need not be withheld if you observe the positions of the aircraft and determine that prescribed runway separation will exist when the aircraft crosses the landing threshold.

    Tower3D. How to manage arrival rush

    Or sadly, delete airplanes. Philadelphia is a good example where arrival logic along with a 20 mile final needs addressing in the next version.
  17. All, Near the middle of this post you will find an invite to the Tower_MP Discord server. Tower_MP is a Meeting Place for the MultiPlayer community of ATC Suite enthusiasts. Using text and/or voice chat you can: search for multiplayer playing partners, schedule a multiplayer session, communicate with your partner controller during a session, ask questions of the community, share tips & tricks, share custom files, and hopefully have some fun! Creating this server is an attempt to build a community that will hopefully enhance the enjoyment of the ATC Suite simulators. Upon joining the server you will have full non-administrative access to all text and voice channels. Most of us are going to be new to Discord, so there will obviously be a learning curve. But, necessary adjustments will me made as we grow as a community. You may use the following link to gain access to Tower_MP: https://discord.gg/Q9dvrWg I hope to see you there! Craig Disclaimer: Tower_MP is not associated, affiliated, endorsed, or sponsored by FeelThere and its partners. Additionally, please refrain from using the FeelThere support forum for Tower_MP specific discussion.1 1 For the record, Vic is very supportive of the idea but I still felt a disclaimer was appropriate to avoid confusion.
  18. Yes, still live and active. You are definitely welcome to join the community now and play later - it is a great place to ask questions, share ideas, speak freely, and meet people from all over the world.

    Another reason why in the next version FT/ND should not intermingle the use of ICAO codes and IATA codes. In the case of the Boeing 787-10, the IATA code should have actually been 78J and not 781. But Real Traffic has never been perfect.

    LFPG - Paris CDG Airport is OUT!!!

    Yes, but as @scoobflight has indicated the links need updating.

    Why are the links to the airport proceeded with a leaving Facebook warning?

    LFPG - Paris CDG Airport is OUT!!!

    My review/thoughts based on @Nasder's youtube video: With LFPG, it appears there is less reliance on satellite images either by design or by necessity (due to cost/availability). There are some pros/cons to this, as there are no satellite/graphic overlay inconsistencies. However, the airport looks less real making it more game-like than simulation-like. The ground/land features appear to be very sanitized/bland especially the area surrounding the airport. Gabor excelled in this area at KPHX but LFPG is lacking. The buildings and terminals suffer from this same sanitized look - lacking texture which I've seen mentioned in posts on other forums. And, finally, the gameplay appears to be typical Tower!3D Pro fare ... bugs that bother some (like me) won't bother others. I've been flight siming lately and my bar for graphics is along those the lines of the default and freeware airports. Not sure if this game engine is capable of that yet, so I will continue to "patiently" wait for the next version.

    EDDM SP1

    Gabor said "is being released". He didn't say has been released. πŸ™‚
  24. Are you suggesting that Gabor has gone back and updated all the Real Traffic schedules? πŸ˜‰ PS - I already know the answer to this question.
  25. crbascott

    LFPG - Paris CDG Airport is OUT!!!

    Based on the video it’s the typical taxi and pushback issues that are ever-present in this version and most airports. Joe, are you representing Gabor in this thread?
