ES v3.2.a(r25) Departure List Sequencing

Hello Everyone

 

Since I use r25 there is the possibility to use the Start-Up flag "ST-UP" in the departure list. (Same place as "PUSH", "TAXI" and "DEPA") My problem with it is that it is sorting aircraft, receiving the Start-up flag, to a higher priority than aircraft already pushing.

 

Is that intended or just something which has to be resolved?

 

Because when we use it also as coordination between DEL and GND stations, it messes up the sequence in the list.

E.g. if DEL cleares the aircraft he sets the clearance flag. Once the pilot then calls for push,  DEL set's the Start-up flag in order to visualise to the Apron/GND controller that the aircraft has reported ready.

This allows to hand over aircraft by "monitor Apron/GND on xxx.yyy" with a clear sequenced indication to Apron/ground which aircraft is ready and which not. (Without needing to set something in text. --> Text does not sort automatically, but the flag does, which helps.)

Hi Florian,

From what I can remember (someone may proove me wrong), the order of those is determined by the order in which they recieve the first status update. So that would mean that in this case DLH is #2 because he was se to ST-UP before the SAS was set to PUSH.

It is correct that the order is determined by the sequence you assign the flags (e.g. Push at t1 becomes #1 and the next becomes #2), but if you look at my picture, the St-UP flag was set later than the PUSH flag and it jumped into the sequence before the PUSH, because it seems to have a higher priority.

 

It is a pretty annoying thing if you have 30 a/c on the ground and the sequence continuous to jump like that.
