anyone heard anthing about the next airport

Recommended Posts

Yes. 

They didn’t do it for Gatwick and I don’t expect they will do it for Heathrow but I would love to be proved wrong. Both SPEEDBIRD & SHUTTLE, after all isn’t it called “Real Traffic”?

Just tested it with,
 

FRT, FT, FIELD AIR, Feelthere International Airlines, United States
FRT, VL, VALUE, Value, United States

Value flights had FRT# (where # is flight number) and identified themselves as 'Value' with value liveries, 'Field Air' was unchanged with there own callsign and liveries.

So it is possible to do.

@WildCard that method would fix the voice callsign but unless @nyergesdesign does something in the manifest files of the RC pack to account for this, then one of those lines will result in white aircraft. Simply copying the .ba entries and also labelling them similar to “dot whatever fake IATA code” is used for the domestic shuttles would work.

Interesting, so you should be able to add

SHT, BA, SHUTTLE, British Airways, United Kingdom

to the XXXX_Airport.txt file to get the BA livery with the 'Shuttle' callsign and SHT tag. Then just need to update all the domestic flights in the XXXX_Shedule.txt file to use SHT and SH*T you can't, you need the IATA code 😇

So, going back to the original request by @andredragt to have the vast majority of BA traffic at T5 with just a few from T3, as in the real world, is it not easier to allocate just a small number of T3 gates in the airport coding only for BA? Such as:

Terminal 3: AAL,ACA........ etc

Terminal 3BA: BAW

That seems a workable compromise.
Now, how do you get the BA domestic flights to use the correct callsign SHUTTLE while still keeping  BAW/BA codes and not getting white aircraft?

I was able to do it with T!2011 by creating special airline codes and copying the existing livery. Not doable in T!3D. Should be getting customization back in the next version. 

But I’d prefer a cleaner solution. Gate availability and assignments had been a challenge in the Tower series thus far. Good luck @FeelThere.
