This applies to Boeing aircraft only Reading lots of topics on real color and the various Boeing sub model designation, I am suggesting that the sub models be dropped from the schedule.txt files. Each A/C type has basic models with variants for winglets, non winglets, long range, ER etc. i.e 772,77L, 737M, etc, They are all basic models on the same airframe. I notice that ATC Joe usually uses the basic models in his schedules. I have been using this method on all my home made schedules since Tower 2011. It would make it simpler for Gabon (sorry if spelt wrong) to make the RT aircraft file & the RC file & take away the problem with 77L v 772 as per the BA A/C in another topic. It would mean that if using a downloaded FlightAware file you would need to convert 73L etc. to 738 or as required. This is really a fairly simple search & replace operation. Think how much smaller the aircraft.txt file would be & the RC file would not have the problems with the BA livery or others. For information, Airbus has a similar designation for its models. the designation is 3 numbers designating model, engine, weight ie. A330-313. These are not shown in the Tower files. Please don't throw this suggestion out & for Craig, Wayne, Vic, Joe, & all the others that have valuable contributions to this site regularly, have a bit of a think about it. There I have had my rant for the week Kev M
