Tower!3D: AI interrupting the readback

Hey there,

first off I want to say that Tower!3D (Pro) is a really nice game and a lot of fun. However one small details quite annoys me: the AI pilots keep interrupting the readback.

What happens often in-game:

  • Me: "TAB148 continue taxi"
  • ANG351: "ANG351 requesting push and start"
  • TAB148: "continue taxi, TAB148"

How it should be (imho):

  • Me: "TAB148 continue taxi"
  • TAB148: "continue taxi, TAB148"
  • ANG351: "ANG351 requesting push and start"

Playing rushhour in LAX is getting quite annoying to me, because I never get a direct reply from the plane I'm talking to. There is constantly someone interrupting because he wants a pushback, or is ready to taxi, or inbound for landing :(

Is that intended behaviour? If not, can it be fixed?

 

PS: sorry if that issue was discussed before, I couldn't find anything in the forum.

I don't always wait for replies, but I seem to get replies pretty regularly.  I don't always wait for requests before giving instructions either, so sometimes I see the following:

Me:  UAL918, Runway 27, Cleared to Land
UAL918: Runway 27 cleared to land, UAL918
UAL918: Tower, UAL918 with you, runway 27.

When it gets really busy it'll occasionally take a while to catch back up, and it's not uncommon to hear pilots speaking to me when I pause the game for minutes on end.

It's also important to remember that when playing single player you are responsible for both Tower and Ground. I find that most of the "interruptions" are actually from aircraft calling the opposite frequency from the one I just gave a command to, example:

Me on Tower: "TAB148runway 1 cleared for takeoff"

ANG351 on Ground: "Ground, ANG351 ready to taxi"

TAB148 on Tower: "Clear for takeoff runway 1, TAB148"
