Do heavies use 16L / 34R for departures, though? At the moment, the sim isn't sophisticated enough to do conditional runway assignments based on aircraft type, although I'm burning to get that added in. Another place with a similar problem is Philadelphia.

As an aside, I've landed on 16L / 34R in a 777-300, and it was rather harrowing, haha. We seemed to drift for half the runway, too, which may have contributed.

Hi there --

I hadn't even thought about this one, but it looks like it gets decent traffic, so sure, I'll consider BHM for inclusion.

Note that it won't be any time soon, though, as Copenhagen will probably be the next freebie, and I also have a lot of features to add.

As always, I offer fast service on new airports for $100, and you are welcome to use this space to coordinate with others if you want to split it.

If you can raise some vocal support on the forum, I will also consider escalating BHM in the schedule. No fair cheating and creating a bunch of forum accounts!! :-)

PANC traffic update request and question by atccheif to /forum/general

jlink 1 point

Ok, lemme get back to you in a day or two.

Regarding HOW, I used to fly to every airport in the world and write down what I saw out the window. But that bankrupted me, so after I got out of debtor's prison I created several spider-like robots to climb the fence and photograph everything. But eventually I was caught and went back to prison, serving multiple sentences in the US, UK, Canada, Sweden, and Thailand. After that I switched to drones, but got in trouble for airspace violations and went back to prison yet again. I'm actually writing this to you from prison now.

(Actually, I made all of that up.)

I have a few different methods, none of which are perfect. Ultimately, I may start paying FlightStats for bulk data, or something like that.

Traffic update for Philly by northland to /forum/general

What I really want to get in with ATC-SIM 2.0 is more runway logic, so that Dash 8s and such get assigned short runways such as the N/S one at Philly but heavies have to use the longer ones.

"Cleared to intercept" means the plane is not within the cone or triangle shaped area outside the approach end of the runway that it needs to be in to issue a landing clearance. However, the plane in question will keep moving forward until it does enter that area.

Say goodbye to 14L/32R at O'Hare & 14R/32L changes to 15/33 in the Spring by jlrwi to /forum/airports

jlink 1 point

Thanks for sharing. This marks the beginning of the end for another part of the original Douglas field. Of course, the old triangle layout doesn't make sense in today's world.

I once had a dream that all the runways were east-west. That was probably due to me seeing what is now 28R and two taxiways from the tollway, but it's interesting that it's coming true.

14L/32R always seemed like an accident waiting to happen to me, with the embankment down to the highway at the arrival end of 32R.

Once upon a time I lived in Arlington Heights and the two 14/32s brought air traffic nearly over my house. In those days, there was gooey black soot from the exhaust over everything, making windows hard to clean. As a young child, the "flanged" sound of jet engines fading in and out often put me into a trance.

I once went to Germany from 14L and Japan from 32R.

Cannot land at MCO by squeakmail to /forum/atc-sim

jlink 1 point

It does sound like Paul is beginning his approaches too close to the runway, although if 2,000 works for him at LHR then it should work at MCO.

The test is to see how high the planes are as they approach the threshold. If higher than, say, 200 feet, then it means the approach needs to be started from farther out.

Cannot land at MCO by squeakmail to /forum/atc-sim

jlink 1 point

Must mean you're not lined up as well as you think, or not within the "cone" area at the end of the runway.

I typically advise people to begin their approaches from farther out when this happens, and then start bringing it in closer once it starts working.

And you're definitely at 1,000 feet? What does the confirmation box in the upper right say after you issue the command?

Maybe approach the runway more diagonally and go for a localizer "intercept".

"Mysterious" violation seconds? by av8nut to /forum/atc-sim

Yes, it's a legitimate problem. It has to do with the old style arrival path programming & the various screen resolutions. If these bad things "line up" all together, like the "Swiss cheese" explanation of crashes, then arrivals will cut across the corner and the player will be unfairly"dinged".

New & revised airports don't have the problem.

Several new landscape overlays were added over the weekend, including Incheon this morning, and the arrival path revisions are ongoing as well.

Thanks, Roy, for the report. I'll put something in to re-center the overlay when the screen changes -- hopefully later on today or tonight.
