Craig Phillips is to be quite honest a master, when one has created a programme of such magnitude that it is used across the globe you will poor you heart and soul into it.

Hi Craig. Thanks for making such a great program.

 

I have a question about usage, and this one shouldn't need a patch to answer. I'm trying to use ASE to create .air files for use with tower trainer. It creates the planes fine and I can load the scenario in tower trainer without issue. The problem is that none of the planes that I intended to be moving at the start of the scenario are able to move. Tower trainer thinks they're all "parked". For aircraft at the gate that's no problem. But I also included a couple of planes moving on taxiways, one that's supposedly just landed and is rolling out on the runway, and one on about a 4 mile final approach. But all of these aircraft, including the airborne one on final, are all "parked" and can't be moved unless I give taxi instructions. Is this just because tower trainer is more geared towards starting with parked aircraft where as ACSim is intended to be used with aircraft in flight? If you want I'll send you a PM with a link the scenario I tried to make.

 

Thanks in advance.

TWRTrainer doesn't support the notion of an aircraft starting out moving on the ground. Aircraft start out either parked on the ground, or moving in the air. And even the ones that start in the air are just going to be flying along at their [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned heading and altitude. If you saved the air file while an aircraft was on final or in the pattern, it won't "remember" that situation when the air file is loaded later. In other words, TWRTrainer air files only contain aircraft position info, not behavior info. air files are not designed to allow you to freeze and resume a scenario at any point while it's running.

 

You can certainly create a scenario with an aircraft starting out having just exited a runway, but in order for him to get moving, like you observed, you'll need to issue a taxi instruction.

Did you ensure all the ESE Specific fields were filled out?

 

That usually throws up errors if they aren't.

When I tried to save an ESE file... I got this error (details):

Where are you trying to save to? Does it happen all the time, or just this once?

 

Craig Phillips

 

Saving to my local hard disk under 'C:\atc\training scenarios'. And everytime. I didn't have all the fields filled out for the aircraft like Rahul pointed out above. Going to fill them all in and try again and see if it still throws the error.

Are you attempting to load a scenario and re-save it? I was able to create an aircraft with just a callsign and a position, and saved successfully. If you are attempting to load a scenario, would you be able to send me, or upload the original scenario?

PM me your email and I'll send you the original.

Attempting to create a scenario here where an aircraft will stick to its filed TAS.

 

In ASE I set both the filed airspeed and ground speed to 300 (yes i realize its ground speed, but it should be the same with no wind in a simulator session).

 

One aircraft at 5000ft, one at 10.000

 

When i open the situation file within Euroscope, the lower aircraft shows a groundspeed of 202, and the higher aircraft a groundspeed of 222.

 

Is there anything i can do to have the aircraft stick to their ASE speeds upon loading?

 

The speeds need to be spot on for the estimates to stick for a given scenario.

Best regards

I think the speed differences are due to the different systems interpreting the speeds given by ASE. I think both ACSIM and TWRTrainer treat the speed as Groundspeed, whereas Euroscope treats the speed as IAS. If Euroscope does use IAS, it would result in higher Groundspeeds at higher altitudes. The only way I think to get the same groundspeeds at different levels is by trial and error, unless you know the math computation the Euroscope uses. Sorry I cant be of much help.

It might well be a bug with ES, i´ll see if i can dig up some more information.

 

I don't think it's a bug, but an intended feature. I shall do some testing between the release and beta versions after Christmas.

 

Merry Christmas

Hi Marcus,

 

How do you want it to show. I can't find a way so it is attached to the callsign/datatag so you can see DAL123/Q or N1234/A flying on the radar scope.

If you add a new aircraft (via the new aircraft window and click on the aircraft sign next to aircraft type) and call it C!72/A or A320/Z etc, it will show in the flight plan as the correct aircraft equipment code (in Euroscope but not sure with VRC but presume it does. If you do add a new aircraft it will need some performance data created but you can just copy and paste this from a similar aircraft in the scenario file once saved.

I just found a way to make it so. If I first save the scenario as a Euroscope file, I can go into the .txt file and amend the PERFAC section to the equipment suffix I want. This way, it keeps the performance information of the originally selected craft. Then, when I open the scenario in ASE, the aircraft with the equipment suffix is magically there and can be saved as an .air file. It works for me.

Hello Craig and all people, how are you doing?

I need to know how to work the traffic circuit at sweatbox.

I didn't found any way to take of and enter downwind after.

Another question is about helicopters. How to set the performance to start the climb with low speed and maintain speed below 120kts?

Thank you for all!! Happy new year!
