Tower 3D pro HELP!! - how to download new aircraft liveries/airlines

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.. a quick question, I have installed Tower 3D Pro, but my problem is, I have no clue how to download new aircraft liveries/airlines. For example, I currently am stuck with the default airline, and I want to add real airlines into my game instead of the defaults, so if you know how to do this, please respond, because I see people playing the game on youtube and they are controlling real airlines like lufthansa, delta, southwest and I wanted to know how to add those airlines into my game as well

Edit: details to subject line to reflect the question

You have to purchase real color of the airport you have purchased to see those liveries at that particular airport as well as real traffic to see the real schedules at those airports. The nice thing is that you only have to purchase real traffic once. Unfortunately you have to purchase each real color for each airport you control at. A trick I have done is that I look at the liveries excel chart that @Pedantic G (Gary) has created kindly to see which airports have which liveries. It's a great tool to have and that he keeps updated for the community. For certain US Airports most liveries (e.g.. southwest, delta, United, AA, etc..) are available for almost all airports and so not every US real color product is required in order to load them for playing. You can find the real traffic and real color products for purchase on the feelthere website or on steam if you have the steam version as well. Hope that helps!

Just to add to Ashtons post, any RC you buy will transfer over to all airports, so the best idea to save money is to buy an RC pack like LAX or JFK for the US, or EDDF for europe. This will considerably reduce the amount of packs you need to buy

I have the steam version as well @Nolan Sanders. No, you need to purchase the real color packs for the airports not the airports themselves to obtain liveries as well as the real traffic package. You can only purchase airports from Steam. Steam does not sell real traffic or real color packages. You can access the Feel There web page via here: https://www.feelthere.com/

Once again... You need; Real Traffic and any of the Real Color Airport Packages to obtain the liveries for airlines in those packages. (Hence why I suggested Gary's list for liveries so you can see which airports you want to purchase to obtain certain liveries. You can get the list via here:

Once purchased, Feelthere will email you the download links for the installer as well as the registration key, click the link, run the installer. (Make sure you install as Admin) The installer will present you with a list of options for installation. Make sure you click the steam version (for me, it says Tower 3D Pro Steam Version), that will automatically install the correct path to your steam game folder. Make sure you install the real color packages first, then the real traffic to finalize the download. (Every time you update an airport or real color package, you always need to re install the real traffic package or else you will see white planes instead of your purchased liveries!). Reach out if you need anymore assistance. 🙂

No, there is a Livery AddOn (Real Color) for every single airport, because with every new airport DLC at least one new Livery (as far as I can tell) is added. This leads to the fact that many Liveries are included in several different Real Color Packs. So it is not necessary to buy the matching Real Color Pack for every airport DLC, because most of the liveries might be included in other packs already purchased. That depends of course on which and how many packs have already been purchased. The Real Color Packs add the Liveries to the Real Traffic AddOn and can be used independently from the airports. Real Traffic and all Real Color Packs are not available in the Steam Store, but can be used for the Steam version of Tower!3D (Pro).

...this is only true if Steam is installed in the default directory and not, as it is often the case, on e.g. an extra harddrive for games.

I personally would install Real Traffic first, but I see no advantage or disadvantage in the order in which you do it. Maybe @ashman99 knows more than I do, which may well be the case.
