KMCO - Real World Schedules & Scenario Fun
Ripskin posted a topic in ATC SimulatorsI created 2 full day's schedules from different days for a change in dynamic at the airport and used them to create some extra options for some fun. Real Traffic is required but Real Color is your discretion. I have links to videos of each schedule to save space vs large embeds. Disclaimer: I was taking notes for fixes and ensuring the schedules were working so while I'm not great at the game this is lower than my usual "standard" of play quality. :) Likewise a few fixes were made after the video's. 12/31/2018 I figured with it being New Years Eve a number of people would be heading home and this turned out to be true with quite a busy period of early morning departures. Sadly not a lot of GA on the holiday Video showing an hour of play from this schedule. Download here 2/2/2019 A typical Saturday with busy in / out traffic. Reasonable number of GA flights. Video showing an hour of play from this schedule. Download here For both schedules I've done a fair amount of testing and believe I have fixed all of the schedule conflicts and issues if any are found just send me a message and I'll fix them. I have not looked at fixing the white planes at this time. Extras: I have felt that KMCO can handle more traffic than it currently see's and decided it would be fun to play that. So I took both of my two schedules and merged them together for a... Double traffic schedule: I did go through and advance by one flight number duplicate planes following the same routes etc similar to the original schedules that had a few departures and arrivals back at the airport. This also means more periods of the day are active to keep things rolling instead of a slow late evening. Video showing an hour of play from this schedule. Download here Scenario Play: For the first few here I wanted to focus in on some things I have done privately and as most people have experienced while flying which add some fun as written into the schedule with some basic guidelines for play. As such I have created two scenario's for weather related fun: Scenario 7am through 8am: Video Showing this scenario Bad weather has been in the area around MCO, at 7am a storm starts to move in. In an attempt to get in / out before the weather arrives a number of planes will seek departure and arrival prior to the airspace closing. At about 7:10 the airspace will close, departures remain active until about 7:12am. Planes en-route will be held in a pattern by ATC and not released into MCO control until the weather clears. Departures are able to push roll to staging but are not allowed to depart and must wait in staging areas. There is a route open out of the area but MCO must share it with all airports. If any plane is released into MCO airspace the tower can then depart a plane as it is MCO's turn. The weather pushes out of the area and the airport is free to resume normal operations at 7:30am. ATC will pull planes out of their patterns and queue them for arrival. Scenario 8pm through 9pm: Video Showing this scenario Weather is still in the area around MCO this evening however the impact is primarily with other airports. A number of airplanes must divert to MCO due to weather at their destinations. This will create a small spike of planes routed in and then later in the evening a spike of departures as they all head out to their intended destinations. Download the scenarios here Configure the airport how you see fit but mix it up and replay seeing what works best but most of all enjoy. The morning period is going to be the more hectic and demanding as it is peak departure time for the schedules and you will have to stack up the planes in an area attempting to allow flowing traffic without blocking major paths. Typically planes must still have a route to return to the gate if needed so keep that in mind. The second period is still active for that time of night but the activity comes and goes specific to the added traffic which was only a few planes. I adjusted these planes in the schedule to set destinations in the reasonable area to divert to MCO though I did not adjust their source. I also adjusted their flight number advancing it by one to avoid duplicate issues but you can identify each as they arrive and then depart within the regular schedule for the evening. The goal I set was to have as much of the schedule COMPLETED as possible by the end of the hour as a gauge of performance. I have more scenario ideas for the next airport I will be making schedules for which hopefully will not take too long. If you run into any bugs or problems please let me know and I will go correct them. The schedules were made in Excel so for the most part fixes are fairly easy to process. I hope that you enjoy and happy controlling!
Vote for next airport schedule
Controller- Rogue posted a topic in ATC SimulatorsGreetings everyone, I am thinking of creating some new schedules over the next few days, now is your chance to vote on which airport you would like to see a new schedule for. Complete with: GA traffic Updated terminal file Updated airlines file Cheers 😁 Rogue *Edit: Added KPHL to the list*
dan_b posted a topic in ATC SimulatorsI've just started working on my first schedule, (JFK June 4) I'm noticing some flights not showing up when testing even after checking terminal and Real Color listing. Is there something I might be doing wrong or is it simply a case of too many flights for the game to handle? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Boeing designations, schedule & Real Color
707FAN posted a topic in ATC SimulatorsThis 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
Hello Tower Community, I have started a new series of schedules for KLAX, based on the recent real life schedule. Already I have been making a lot of schedules but I didn't know how to make a schedule for KLAX where the spawning of arrivals would not be a problem with a 1 minute seperation, and that is really needed if in need of approx. 60 arrivals in an hour like in real life. Thanks to crbascott who made some time to explain to me how I should build a correct schedule on KLAX, I started with a new series of schedules (plan is going for 12x a 1hr:15minutes schedule) of which 3 are already finished at this moment. I'm totally happy to share it with you guys if you wanne play new schedule(s) on KLAX. What do you need? Tower 3D the game (duh) Nyerges Real Traffic A backup of your Nyerges KLAX_schedule.txt AND KLAX_terminals.txt (we have to overwrite them with custom ones for these schedules to work) High spirits (be prepared for high dense traffic) The schedules: 1) KLAX 10.30.2017 - 06:55am to 08:10am (difficulty overall 6/10) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1PG3_GlUhHDOWY5Y196bnhYSW8/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=_UmPPFy1Vao 2) KLAX 10.27.2017 - 07:55am to 09:10am (difficulty 6/10 at start and ramps up to 12/10 at end, yes 12/10... you read that correctly) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1PG3_GlUhHDVXE0UjMzS1Z0ZEk/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=-9qtBmbOkAc 3) KLAX 10.27.2017 - 08:55am to 10:10am (difficulty 7/10) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1PG3_GlUhHDV3NBM2NYTTRuWjA/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=W2QAzfAClco 4) KLAX 10.27.2017 - 09:55am to 11:10am (difficulty 7/10 at start and ramps up to 9/10 at end) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1PG3_GlUhHDdXBBUXZCWGxBa1k/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=JVlGkihoXA4 5) KLAX 10.30.2017- 10:55am to 12:10pm (diffuculty 7.5/10 on average) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1PG3_GlUhHDdEdSZ1NRUWJfYTQ/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=uFa6HNNfMbo 6) KLAX 11.01.2017 - 11:55am to 1:10pm (difficulty 7.5/10 on start towards 8.0/10 at the end) https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1PG3_GlUhHDcnBscmFHMF93aGM/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=cy_1V7tQKFA 7) KLAX 11.02.2017 - 12:55pm to 2:10pm (difficulty 7.5~8.0/10 on average) NOTE: For this schedule you need to remove the line IOS, 5Y, SCILLONIA, Isles of Scilly Skybus, United Kingdom from the klax_airlines.txt and replace it with GTI, 5Y, GIANT, Atlas Air, United States https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kWW00nhM-PqIeNixjuT9kH8WCWXNMuM3/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=CQdvoYPxbVY (duplicates have been removed from the schedule before posting to google drive) 8) KLAX 11.03.2017 - 1:55pm to 3:10pm (difficulty 6.5~7.0/10) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1oNQttBGqV6QuIU1kYjo8spT1B_MUAymL/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=tRYyvaVCrWE 9) KLAX 11.06.2017 - 2:55PM to 4:10PM (difficulty 7/10 at start and ends with 20 minutes of 9/10) So far this schedule is the one I enjoyed most https://drive.google.com/file/d/11OlQs1YVopljFS9fqZXwL9DIRD3LSdLj/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=gEpC80gnzMI 10) KLAX 11.10.2017 - 3:55PM to 5:10PM (difficulty 7/10 at start towards 8/10 at the end) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1E_owUZ40nPovSM4bpk4K-yoc4xuuNsJ_/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=UQcyTfz-kEs 11) KLAX 11.13.2017 - 5:55PM to 7:10PM (difficuly 7.5/10) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yCZcPJIno-q3PyvayFQ4pn18hBdwWL3-/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=Bd3aVpcouws Bonus Stage #1) KLAX 11.06.2017 - 08:55AM to 10:10AM (difficulty 8.5/10) https://drive.google.com/file/d/187MvHjRz8z47_fsw9kDPj3_uf0z2cG6e/view?usp=sharing Youtube gameplay video: watch?v=VeVgHJ1TSA8 You NEED the terminal.txt file included in the .zip files for the schedule(s) to work (based on the latest real life KLAX terminals setup by crbascott). Each schedule comes with its own terminal.txt so don't forget to make a backup of your original nyerges or custom terminal.txt and afterwards overwrite terminals.txt and the schedule.txt both for each seperate schedule! I will continue making schedules to complete approx. 12 hours of KLAX and will edit this post to add new finished/tested schedules. I will not post new schedules as reply to this topic to bump it up each time there is a new one so don't worry about that. Thank you for your time and I hope you will enjoy them, Carda1972 Edited on 11.16.2017 : Added the schedule from 6PM to 7PM
