Hmm, sounds tempting :) But I need to recover this lack of sleep first :)

Last night Neil and I had a multiplayer (AND multimonitor) session at KPHL and at one point we decided to switch runways. It was fun to re-route airplanes from their designated runway to the other end :)

No no, If we let you sleep first, then none of us will have a sporting chance :-)  

 

P.S. So excited :-)

Or worse yet, he may have gotten into that bottle red wine he was talking about, and now he can't remember where the button is.  Tsk tsk tsk.  What are we going to do with you Vic?  I suppose he is now in a drunken stupor having crazy nightmares about booting up Tower3DPro, and discovering that Harrison Ford has landed on the taxiway.  Oh wait, that was in real life...  Come to think of it, that would actually be a pretty cool Easter egg for the game.  Any chance of including that Vic?  Nah, I guess he will probably save that idea for "Tower3D: Celebrity Aviator Edition" :-)

I'm alive (and unfortunately sober :) )
We are uploading the files, you can already start updating your Nyerges RC and KSAN add-ons those are uploaded. Once KJFK is up we will make the whole thing alive.
We will release it on ATCSuite.com first and about 10 hours later on FeelThere.com

Thanks for the jokes it keeps me awake (and I can work faster when I laugh... :) )

So far it looks great.  A couple of notes.

1. I noticed that the .exe is labeled identically to the standard version.  Would it not make more sense to name it Tower!3DPro.exe?

2. While I see how to change the runways, I have not yet found a way to change the wind direction.  Is there a way to change it manually, or is it always random?  Have not tried it yet, but does the wind actually affect aircraft performance?  Will pilots complain or refuse to land if assigned a runway with a tail wind?

Looks like all the Real Color has to be upgraded also.  I installed them and none of the graphics line up properly.  Tails look ok, but the Fuselage graphics like windows and names do not

THANK YOU, Vic and team.  You kept your promise and I am sooooo excited to try this out.  As with any software, there may be bugs, but I will take time to note them down for LATER so that you all can get a rest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Loving the pushback feature.  I expect this will be very nifty at KATL where taxi allies lead to both the north and south runway complexes, and getting departures pointing in the right direction will be critical.

Or a smaller airport for that matter, an airport where it is realistic (...or at least more realistic than KLAX, KSFO or KATL) for one controller to do both ground and tower operations for an entire airport. Tower 2011 had Key West as an addon, I would not mind that airport. Seem like a perfect balance.

Is anyone using voice recognition yet. I've not got that far yet. What's the feedback on it. Having never used it on tower 11, is it easy to set up.

Russell

The best part is; theoretically you don't have to set up if you have Win 8 or Win 10 :)

You cannot change the wind. In random weather it changes (sometimes). There are typical wind direction and we used a statistic ho many times the wind differ from it. Please don't expect sudden wind changes, it's a sim not an arcade game :)
Yes, the pilot will start complaining about tailwind :)

The t3dpro voice is just gibberish until the end and then the words are heard, but my t3d voice works just fine. No aircraft calls are displayed in the command line for t3dpro, although I can command aircraft with the mouse. Seems like I had this gibberish problem with t3d but don't remember the solution. Win7-64 bit.
