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.

In addition, when requesting any aircraft change to Enter Final for 31R or 31L there is no button to do so if using mouse. 
 

voice recognition is not an issue
