Tower!3D Pro - KDFW - Real Traffic Issues

Recommended Posts

You knew this was coming didn't¬†you?¬†ūüėā¬†With KDFW being my home airport, having worked and volunteered there, you knew I had to lovingly¬† ūüė欆scrutinize RT/KDFW¬†to make sure it met the standards of realism.¬†Overall, I'd say good job but I would like to make some suggestions to @nyergesdesign¬†for some improvements as I do feel an SP will be needed.

Terminal Assignments
AIJ - Interjet is an international carrier and needs to be reassigned to Terminal D. At KDFW, all international flights (excluding Canada) arrive at Terminal D (and gates B1-B3) in order to go through customs. 
AMF - Ameriflight is a cargo part 135 airline and should be moved out of terminal D (they have no commercial passengers) to a cargo area on the west side (their headquarters are actually located there)
ANT - Not in schedule and needs to be removed from the terminal file
BTQ - Boutique Air flies out of the Corporate Aviation Terminal (GA?) and not terminal E 
 

Real Color
Skywest actually flies as an AAL regional carrier at KDFW. It looks like Skywest is included in the RC for KDFW but I assume is it the same generic livery?  @Pedantic G? 
 

Schedule (this is where the SP is definitely needed)
In looking at the flight volume (which is very low, especially when compared to @battlehawk77's schedules) I found a major discrepancy between the number of arrivals and departures. In doing a deeper dive, I noticed two major gaps where there were no departures and only arrivals. This would point to a data problem versus the airport being shut down. The gaps are between 10:53 - 12:15 and 12:49-13:51. This is well over 2 hours of no departures during relatively busy time periods.
As a result, I would suggest an SP to fix this gap in departures in order to provide a fully playable schedule.  

Again, an improvement by the ND team (no duplicates this time) but I would say further research and quality control is needed. Thanks!

Hi Craig, yes it is in the generic livery. Makes it cleaner across all RC packs

Thanks - that's what I assumed.

Sorry, not buying that one. Clean across all RC packs is not the current modus operandi, but it's definitely the easy way out in this case.
