  1. Later versions of makerways.exe will create an f4.csv or f5.csv in your root folder of your flight sim. This is pulled from the com frequencies in your installed scenery files. This feature was added at my request by author Pete Dowson (FSUIPC). You could paste a single line from this file into your existing f4/f5 file or use the entire file to replace your original f4/f5 file which is a fixed database in the RC install download. In the download of make runways there is a readme installed that offers a layout of the fields of all the data files such as r4/r5 csv, the f4/f5 file and others including the format definition of each file type. I beta tested and worked with Pete on verifying the data. Frequencies are included in the scenery afd (airport facility data) files for each scenery.
  2. If you can install the downloaded rcv4 install file to an empty folder outside your current one, you should get a copy of the original c4 is the carrier file listing airlines and call signs. It may be called c5.csv. It will be in the rcv5/data folder. For reading it do not user a database application but just wordpad text mode but don't save anything with Excel, etc. It can corrupt csv files that rc uses. Here's what a notepad reading (etracted)would like like: '5123,filename,operator,3letter,callsign,, SAM,C_SAM,89th Airlift Wing - USAF,, 0 ,,SAM AIRWEGO,C_AIRWEGO,AirWeGo VA,, 0 ,,AIRWEGO PEOPLE EXPRESS,C_PEOPLE EXPRESS,People Express Airlines Inc - USA,, 0 ,PEX,PEOPLE EXPRESS ECUATORIANA,C_ECUATORIANA,Ecuatoriana De Aviacion - Ecuador,, 0 ,EEA,ECUATORIANA WESTERN,C_WESTERN,Western Airlines Inc - USA,, 0 ,WAL,WESTERN AIRLAN,C_AIRLAN,Air Atlanta Inc - USA,, 0 ,CRB,AIRLAN OZARK,C_OZARK,Ozark Airlines - USA,, 0 ,OZA,OZARK SHARON,C_SHARON,Sharon Airways VA,, 0 ,,SHARON AIRFIX,C_AIRFIX,Airfix Aviation - Finland,, 0 ,FIX,AIRFIX JETFLITE,C_JETFLITE,Jetflite OY - Finland,, 0 ,JEF,JETFLITE SUN AIR EXPRESS,C_SUN AIR EXPRESS,SunAir Express VA,, 0 ,,SUN AIR EXPRESS AMSTEL,C_AMSTEL,Amsterdam Airlines - Netherlands,, 0 ,AAN,AMSTEL DANISH,C_DANISH,Danish Air Transport - Denmark,, 0 ,DTR,DANISH DANU,C_DANU,Danu Oro Transportas (DOT) - Lithuania,, 0 ,DNU,DANU COURT LINE,C_COURT LINE,Court Line Aviation Ltd - UK,, 0 ,,COURT LINE REACH,C_REACH,Air Mobility Command (AMC) - USAF,, 0 ,RCH,REACH SPAR,C_SPAR,VIP Embassy Support - USAF,, 0 ,,SPAR
  3. Except for Win 10 this free Traffic Look application from Pete Dowson at https://forum.simflight.com/topic/66136-useful-additional-programs/ will show AI activity if that applies to your problem. You apparently have FSUIPC installed already but you can get that updated from: https://forum.simflight.com/topic/80977-updated-modules/ and be sure to read the notes to determine which version fits with the sim version you are using. This site has both updates and full versions. If you are using the one in the RC download it is very much outdated. You also should update makerwys.exe from that additional programs link. That new makerwys should be installed in your si folder. It will create an f5.csv in your sim folder to replace the makerwys.exe delivered with RC4. After you do that copy the f4.csv you currently have in your rcv4/data folder as a backup to a folder outside of your sim. Then run the RC scenery rebuild again. This new f5.csv is what RCs scenery rebuild will use copying it your rcv4/data folder as a new f4.csv. The updated makerwys.exe will extract the various frequencies from your installed scenery. Those frequencies determine if RC recognizes the airport as have tower facilities. You can check the airport comm properties by opening it in an airport editor such as AEX or the freeware Airport Design Editor available from http://www.scruffyduck.org/. Don't use the old AFCAD or AFCAD2 as these can possibly corrupt your scenery bgl files. Then back up your SEQM scenery file and open its bgl as a bgl direct open in airport design editor it will have a setting to examine various property tables including comm frequencies so you can check for appropriate tower and approach tables.for necessary frequencies. This is to insure the tower and ATC frequencies are in your seqm bgl file that you are using so RC will recognize seqm as a controlled airport. Here is a display of a traffic look table of running AI that will open outside of a running sim: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rgvs8o9rk1dhucf/Traffic Look Airborne.jpg?dl=0 Yes, it is complicated.
  4. Check the weather options via FSUIPC's main menu to see what is set. I haven't used FS in quite a while. I last used hi-fi sims ASE for FS9 and all was OK. I used the paid version of FSUIPC but it should spot the installation of ASE and enable the weather options even in the non-paid version. For your startup default flight choose the fair weather theme to give it something to chew on. Also refresh the AI to insure the weather is initially running after a flight is loaded.
  5. There was a freeware utility I do not recall that allowed you to space out approaching traffic placing them in a holding pattern queue. This allowed aircraft in the take-off queue to interweave with those on approach reducing the take-off queue back-up. I think there were two versions. One jogged the incoming aircraft at high speed which I found distracting. The other was more subtle. These were under fs9 but there may be versions fir FSX. Anyone recall the names?
  6. There is an f4.csv in your sim folder. Backup your f4.csv in your RC/data folder and copy the one in your sim folder to your rc4\data folder. This version in your sim folder is made by makerwys from your scenery files. In your sim folder there is a file called runways.txt created by makerws.exe. That is a very large file which is a log of what makerwys has performed. The last entry section for your airport of interest is the one that has priority. Use a text editor (not notepad but winwors and search for I think "airport ICAO" until you get to the last one or two sections (two sections for an add-on and one for original scenery) until you find the last entries for that ICAO.
  7. In the main general options page for FSUIPC make sure the option for a multi-line menu is set. I have not "flown" for some time but I recall that was a common setup problem.
  8. makerws.exe puts r5.csv into your FS folder. In the batch file that runs after makerwys.exe rc continues by copying files into rcv4/data at that time renaming r5.csv to r4.csv. In rcv4/data check the csv files time/date to insure the batch process completed its work.
  9. SIDS and STARS are loaded during you planning stage before you create your .pln or other file. You select the SID within your planner Where the SID required is runway dependent just select the correct waypoint of entry or if not known select waypoints common to all runways. You appear to be using the navdata updates already so that should update your procedures in your flghtplan database If you are using current charts and that chart library in in the same AIRAC cycle then those procedures should be close to your charts. Unless you plan to dictate your arrival or departure runway delete any runway specific waypoints and just choose the waypoints that are in line with the expected departure or arrival directions for transition waypoints. All of this needs to be accomplished in your flight planner before exporting your plan into RC. You could also pit common points into your nav equipment if so allowed. Just choose in RC the procedure method to allow the freest method of navigation to satisfy ATC demands. In the planner I use, it allows me to edit the plan produced before export. It is FSBuild by Ernie Alston on simmarket.com. I use Aerosofts NavdataPro update system which updates myplanner and FMC databases so they are in sync. (There is only one charge for all the formats you require for that one AIRAC cycle. .
  10. Airspeed indicators that use pitot air inputs also use that static ports pressures to subtract from the ram port pressures to get the net dynamic air pressure relating to air speed. Check your barometer/altitude readings when this happens. How about control surface (wing) deicers. Are they on?
  11. https://www.aerosoft.com/us/flight-simulation/flight-simulator-2004/sceneries/1677/mega-airport-amsterdam?c=362 The current specs are through Win V7. Contact Aerosoft for help: It does run through Win 7 SP 3 as I recall. They also have the scandanavian airports collections but they don't list shipol. It could be my Schipol was included in one of them. I would try Aerosoft support first to see if they will install under later than Win 7 versions if that's what you have.
  12. The only problem I have see with some of these packages is they do not render traffic soon enough for FSUIPC to report to RC especially parked aircraft ready to effect departure patterns.
  13. MS offered Combat Sim as a separate flight sim many years ago after FS9 was released. The aircraft and other items shared some of the same properties.
  14. With current FSUIPC that includes the menu display funtion so no need to install advdisp dll. I am not sure in the free fsuipc license included with RC contains he function to turn the display on and off. If you look at the advanced user guide for fsuipc in its folder you can assign a hot key to toggle it on and off, however as soon as ATC "talks" it will reappear. There is also an RC function called IFR training that will turn off the menu display as I recall.
