Tower3D: a few questions from a newbie

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  Just discovered this product and have about 5 hours of playtime in so have a few initial newbie questions that I haven't been able to find via search. Apologize as i'm sure they have been answered over the past few years but did my best to search to no avail.  TIA for the help and looking forward to diving into this game more

  • Is there a way to upgrade from Tower3D to Tower3DPro? Any credit for the $30 already paid towards the Pro cost of $50?
  • How can I change the transparency of the various radar windows as well as the tiles screen? despite having a fairly big monitor, the 3 windows obscure a good part of the tarmac.
  • Is there a list somewhere of all the various commands that are allowed in the command window? Struggling to find the right syntax to use to give a taxi route but telling the plane too hold at the last ramp prior to entering the runway or terminal. 
  • Is there an add-on or dlc that gives you the ramp IDs on the ground radar? I've seen screen shots that show it but maybe it's only available on the Pro version??

Hi @koohead

1. I´m afraid there´s no way to "upgrade" the game. It´s a different product. 🙂

2. There´s no way to reduce the transparency, but there´s a multi-monitor option where you can put the adirs, dbrite and strips windows on the second monitor and leave the first one for the main view. 

3. This might be of help: 

4. This feature is not an addon. Do you mean you can´t see real world airline callsigns or no tags at all?

Thanks for the reply! Understand about Tower3D and Tower3DPro being separate products.  Thx for confirming.

Multi-monitor: I believe this is only available for the Pro version??

Manual: Again, can I assume everything in the Pro manual is available in the non-Pro version as well? Obviously without voice capabilities.

With regards to #4, what I mean is the tags that show the Runway ID and exit/ramp IDs, such as 8R or 8L for the runway, E2 or E12 for the exit, D or C for the ramps themselves. In some screenshots i've seen the radar shows these tags, but I can't figure out how to display them in my game?? (again, non-pro version).  Not a huge deal...I found a map of KPHX online, but would be nice if it were displayed ingame.

Unlikely but perhaps there is the possibility of a refund as a gesture of goodwill. Otherwise T!3Dpro is just in the summer sale at Steam.

A little self-advertising (even if the rameus manual is without question ecxellent)

well dang. wish I waited a few days.  I'm assuming if I go the steam route I'll have to repurchase the DLC specifically for Steam as well??? Specifically KPHX? I'm not seeing real traffic and real color on steam so hopefully what I already have will work for the steam version?

Thanks for the link (great work by the way, love the disclaimer that it is not for real world use!). I see this is labeled as voice commands. Would all these same commands work as typed txt?

Any DLC Real Traffic, Airports etc, should work if you go the steam route, you just have to make sure they are installed into the Tower folder in your Steam directory and you are good to go 🙂

Ok yes, that is completely different. I don't think anything can be done unless you get the Pro version.

Since I cannot see any taxiway labels on your screenshot, I doubt that all commands will work even in the non-pro version. But this is only a guess.

At least I can confirm the statement by @Controller- Rogue:
