kmem is out

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting.  Very tempting.  I will have to think about this.  I would also like to hear from others about whether Gabor remembered to define each cargo ramp interdependently, so that the correct airlines can be assigned to the correct ramp.  Kind of odd that they chose to do this airport now, just as a major renovation is beginning, which will result in the terminal configuration being radically changed.  See http://www.flymemphis.com/modernization-images#Modernization-Current2017

I, too, tried installing KMEM just now.  I installed to the desktop (it's what works for everything else and where everything else is located), but it won't show up in the Airfields Extension folder.   I'm not smart enough for this... 😑

 

Edit:  Okay, maybe I spoke too soon!  Unlike all the other airfields that I installed (to the desktop, where the game is) that find their way magically to the Airfields folder, the MEM files were strewn about.  There was no "KMEM" folder in the airfields extension folder either, so I created on and placed all the files in it...success!  Now to redownload RT.

Fedex cargo hub [over 100 gates], ups[4 gates]and general cargo [16 gates]are defined separately

I know, lol.

However, I know MEM is a FDX hub, and most activity will come from that.  I just don't want to try all hours of the night trying to find the busy hour, lol.

2200, 0000 are quite busy with all the FDX arrivals (hint: use all 3 rwy for arr). You can also go with 0300 which will keep you hopping with all the FDX departures. 1200 should be a good mix though again mostly FDX

After seeing the RT schedule for KMEM my initial thought was a custom schedule was really needed. However, the closer I looked I found that Real Traffic accurately reflects the typical daily flight ebb and flow, although there should be more GA traffic. Realistically, the commercial flights are relatively light and the cargo flights are either feast or famine.

So, in my opinion, a custom schedule based on REAL flight schedules isn’t worth the effort.

Perhaps a holiday schedule would spice things up a bit?  I would imagine that FedEx, and the pax lines as well, add more flights between Black Friday and Christmas...

What periods seem to be the busiest for cargo ops?

Yep agreed.  No interest from my end in creating anything custom for MEM.   Airport is too slow.

3:00, 4:00, and 15:00 appear to be the big departure hours (over 50, but hardly any arrivals). 

22:00 and 23:00 are the busy arrival hours (again with very few departures).

There is no time period in the schedule where there are more than 10 departures and more than 10 arrivals in the same hour. As I said, feast or famine. @Avwriter, I don't think even holiday traffic will help spice things up.
