Remember - we're talking about England... 😁

Very true... you can get wind coming at you in all directions at all times of the day. Interestingly looking at the average stats for the last 16 years its not far off! 🤣

Not so different from where I am. (Unsurprisingly, since EDDH and EGLL are just 400 nm apart.) This is purely the effect of earth's rotation working uninfluencedly above a flat oceanic surface and the proximity of London and Hamburg to the ocean.

Requirements List input now closed

Will compile the final list and then post what I have sent to FT to review and hopefully agree to devote a resource to work with me to produce and SP

SPF1 Displaced Threshold Changes to Runway 09L & 09R - HIGH IMPACT
SPF2 Rename YA2 and Y1 to N11 and connect to start of Runway 09R - HIGH IMPACT
SPF3 RWY 27R at A10E Exit Point - HIGH IMPACT
SPF4 Move Hold Point on A3 to stop conflict - MEDIUM IMPACT
SPF5 Alpha Taxiway Hold Points onto 09L/27R and 09R/27L -HIGH IMPACT 
SPF6 Add new link (SN1) between S1 and N1 - LOW IMPACT
SPF7 Pushback Fix on 5 gates onto Bravo correct release position - LOW IMPACT
SPF8 Tower/Ground speech feedback where some people hear "Detroit" - LOW IMPACT
SPF9 Check Calm Weather Settings - LOW IMPACT

Will keep you posted when I hear anything on this.

All,

Once you are able to download the SP released yesterday by FT (don't ask me why you cannot as I have nothing to do with that side of it), these are the changes made based on the SP fixes I sent to FT on 29th March.

SPF1: FIXED
SPF2: FIXED
SPF3: UNABLE TO FIX PROPERLY SO LEFT ALONE AS MINIMAL IMPACT IF COMMAND TO TAXI TO TERMINAL/RAMP/APRON GIVEN IN "TIMELY" MANNER AND THIS REALLY ONLY IMPACTS LANDINGS ON 27R AND A HEAVY GOING TO A11 ETC PASSING A HEAVY AT A10E.
SPF4: FIXED
SPF5: FIXED
SPF6: FIXED
SPF7: FIXED
SPF8: FIXED
SPF9: ALL OK SO NO NEED TO CHANGE

Other issues found in testing and fixed: Pathing improvements and some gate push back issues fixed in cargo area and other gates bordering taxiway Bravo in addition to SP7 above.

Enjoy when you can

The Runway 09 holding points look better, I will test later (although I have still not had suitable wind direction)
However Runway 27R holding points look the same

First test with Runway 27R operations (arrivals), departures from 27L
It is now possible to stack three aircraft at the N2 and N3 holding points, plus an aircraft can still pass on taxiway B
The pushbacks all look vastly better, no more unusual spinning, passing through terminal buildings or ready to taxi on the grass!
The missing name for Link 35 is a great help
The correction to Stand 313 is also a great help, just a shame Stand 357 could not be added

Hold points on A4 & A5 have moved closer to the runway as far as possible without looking stupid and too close to the runway and it enables aircraft to pass by on Alpha without stopping (unless you try and stick a heavy off of these intersections which I do not believe is realistic anyway).

I am sure one missing stand is not going to stop your enjoyment of the game! 🙃

In any event make the most of the SP guys and girls as there will not be another one... 😉
