autower 2.3.0 is out

Recommended Posts

Hi all,just wanted to let you know that I've just finished version 2.3.0 of autower.In case you don't know what autower is -- it's a little addon that generally fixes the tower views in FS9 (moving the tower to the correct airport, and if possible positioning the tower view to the real-world position).For those of you who already use it, here's a summary of the most important new things:- For airports which do not define a tower position in the AFCAD (or define it wrong), you can now conveniently modify the tower coordinates in autower's configuration instead of editing the AFCAD.- Closed runways (as defined in the AFCAD) are now honored. This affects the calculation of available runway numbers, and thus (indirectly) the tower height for airports which don't have explicit tower altitudes. This affects more or less 500 airports in the stock configuration.The newest version and corresponding source code is available at https://christoph.rosenkeller.org/fs/autower/ .As always, if you find any bugs, or if you have questions or suggestions for improvement, please let me know.CheersChris

Default tower view has been quite a pain to me and I'm very happy to know about your add-on. Will try it today.Thanks :(

This time when I clicked on the link above it worked. But before I got the ops web page that said the link was not there. Must have been a hippcup.

Hi everyone,first off, thanks for the kind words! It's motivating to see that this little thing is deemed useful ;-)I hope you don't mind downloading yet another new version... I recently ( http://forum.avsim.net/topic/352529-more-than-999-scenery-layers/ ) realized that autower was not always correctly determining the scenery layers when parsing scenery.cfg -- it may have missed some layers because it was limited to 999, or it might have gotten the ordering wrong in some unusual circumstances (if you want to know the gory details: I was relying on the number contained in the section name itself (e.g. "Area.542"), instead of using the "Layer" attribute, as FS itself does.In any case, I have fixed these issues, so the shiny new version is now 2.4.0; as always, binary and source archives are at https://christoph.rosenkeller.org/fs/autower/Also as always: if you have any trouble or suggestions concerning autower, let me know.Cheers,Chris
