New ATC and Airport Operations Application Testing

You can assign several ICAOs, or use 2-3 XMLs and reload them.

Regarding ATCModel yes you need to add it in takeoff and landing. You can put an exclamation (!) mark before it and will prevent that model to use that runway. E.g. !A321

How would I use more than one config.xml?

He meant that you can create yourself a few copies of the config.xml file and store it in a separate folder.

Hi Frederico

I've had a CTD several times now when asking taxi permission (default ATC). I can ask, but instead of an answer, I get the CTD. It only happens after a longer cockpit preparation (20 min. or so); when I seek ATC's persmission rihgt after starting the sim, everything works fine. Oh, and it happened to me on airports that are not configured in the config.xml.

P3Dv4.5 HF 2.

Kind regards

Michael

@fio thanks for reporting. Yes the user aircraft ATC code is being re-worked. I will try to fix it in next build

It seems ATCAPI will gives me about 5~10 FPS cost and micro shutter after 10~20 minutes after loading in.

If I change the ingame time, even as 5~10 min, the AI will refresh and FPS gain back, but again in 10~20 minutes it will shutter again.

And the 1.0.0.4 will eventually give a Stackhash CTD after about 40~60min

ATCAPI is very light on FPS. 
 

regarding the CTD you could turn the Debug On, <Debug>1</Debug> and check.

Thanks

+1 for me too. That would mean Aerologic, Fedex and Lufthansa Cargo would have a preference to land on 25C at EDDF while the Asia freighters and AirBridge Cargo typically  land on 25L.

That would be a really nice feature if its feasible. 👍

I will try to include this in the feature list. The main issue with this variable is that it can't be read via PDK or Simconnect? I will need to scan the cfg files for this.

I'm not sure if it's a Simconnect variable, but it is for sure something that is listed in the cfg files. 

It is under the individual repaint variable [flightsim.x] sections in the cfg files. Under "atc_parking_code"

Hi, 

After a long break period, I'm back to P3d and i try use new version. 

I have guestion about v 1.0.0.4.

1.

If i understand correctly i can use only one airports, so if i fly to another, can I repleace XML file for them and reload during flight, to asign setting for this specific airports? Eg i start from EPWA to EGLL, i set runway asigned for this, and prepere XML files for EGLL. After takeoff i repleace it and reload for ARR airports - is this works? 

2.

ATC Model. Shuld i asign this for takeoff line and landing? Egz. for EPWA for takeoff usualy rwy 29 is for takeoff and 33 for landing - exept for heavy, they use 33 couse 29 is to short. I will asign B788, B788 or other heaviest for 33, and others light and medium for 29 (B737, E170 etc.) 

For landing almost all, landing on rwy 33, sometime aircraft lands on 29, but not havies. Can i make exeption ATCModel for landing to egz some thing like this ATCModel=!B788

Today I will test this version. 

Thank You for this greate app. 

Regards 

Grzegorz 

I have had two test flight and I have two CDT - flught from EPWA - LSZH:

1. ATCAPI.dll - error.

I made flight from EPWA to LSZH and everything was going ok, I took off, then i reload xml for LSZH and landing without any problem. But on gete during preparation CDT without any sign...

I use v. 1.0.0.4

Thank You 

I will test it and report back. 

Could You check if my configuration in XML as I share,  every thing is ok? 

Best regards

As my system and my test, only by disable the ATCAPI add-on could gain my FPS back.

Rather than just low FPS, it's more like a mirco-sutter, it might due to conflict. While I can't test all possible combnation, I tested it's still lag without using AIFlow&AIGround. But to test AI, I always keeps UTL on.

I'm also noticing this, but only at bigger airports like Amsterdam. I doubt it has something to do with ATCAPI, but will test this as well. The FPS are around 28-35 when starting up with AI, and after 4 or 5 minutes they drop to 21-25

Ok, I can confirm that ATCAPI gives an FPS loss for me as well.  As far as I can tell it starts losing FPS as soon as the first arrival is on final.   FPS loss is about 8-10 FPS  on Flytampa Amsterdam  (going from 33FPS to 24/25FPS).  Disabled all my other addons, and ATC API seems to be the one causing the loss...
