Tower!3D Pro: Turn Base Now/Pattern is 12 miles?


Recommended Posts

Is there any function to shorten when an aircraft turns to final if in the pattern or told to go around then enter the pattern? Because "close approved" or "enter left/right pattern" or "enter final" will take them to a 10-12 mile final.. which is silly and wouldn't happen unless instructed to. 

Is there a turn base leg now function to instruct an aircraft to turn inbound to the runway? Or a way to shorten their circle in the pattern to 3 or 4 miles.

Unfortunately I have not found a way to do that.  You can tell the plane to turn left/right ??? degrees, or turn left/right heading ???, but when you do that the state changes from state_pattern to state_flyaway and the only thing you can do is send the plane to departure.

You could propose a change in the pattern to be 3nm instead of 12nm. I would not think this would take much except to have to wait for the next service pack.  Unless the programming needs the 12nm to line up the plane for the runway. A longer wait would be a wishlist item for the next version to include an additional command to turn base leg now.
