  1. This tutorial will show controllers how to properly set up a tower view with the FSX/Prepar3d multiplayer tower cab and not just a camera angle. The result will be something like this: Picture from ENGM on a slow morning Requirements: FSX Deluxe, FSX steam or Prepar3d Minimum vPilot v2.0.1.2 - http://vpilot.metacraft.com/Download.aspx Minimum Euroscope build version (3.2a(r12)) - http://www.euroscope.hu/installbeta/changes.html AI Model pack (WOAI, UT2, UTL, etc.) Notepad/Notepad++ Setting up your simulator tower view: In your simulator start a multiplayer scenario as Air Traffic Controller, select your airport. (Date, time and weather are irrelevant at this stage) When you have set your preferences, DO NOT start flight/scenario. Select save scenario/flight and name it something smart. i.e. ENGM_TWR, ESSA_TWR. This way you could have multiple views predefined for different airports Exit multiplayer. From “select flight/scenario” screen, select your tower flight, load it and check that your tower cab is positioned at the correct location and altitude. If location and altitude is correct, move on to get viewing, if not continue below. To correct location and altitude go to C:\Users\*username*\Documents\FSX/Prepar3d. Or wherever you have saved your flights/scenarios. Open your ENGM_TWR.fsxml / ENGM_TWR.flt (filetype depends on simulator) or similar in notepad. Search for “Simvars.0”. In this simVars section you’ll find: Latitude= Longitude= Altitude= These are the interesting values. If your lat/lon location is wrong change it with these values. (Get tower position from AIP, google maps etc. Set the altitude to match the tower height. I use Slew to get correct altitude. (Use the same number of digits). If you put your airplane inside the tower you can read of your preferred altitude. I prefer to place my cab on the roof of the modeled tower. This is to prevent looking through the models walls, with the artifacts that could bring. For ENGM I use Altitude= +001000.00 When all data is changed, save file and exit. Setup complete Get viewing Start your simulator, load the previously created tower flight/scenario, set wanted time and weather (or use preferred weather generator). Start Euroscope. The proxy server shouldn’t be a factor for tower view, but if you want multiple instances of ES make sure the proxy is started. Start vPilot in vPilot command line type “.towerview”. vPilot should now show the message “Connected as observer”. This trough Euroscope, and is therefore not a dual connection to VATSIM. That’s it. You should now start seeing planes on your airport and in the skies around Nice to know: In vPilot type “.debug” to get a debugging window open which will show you any error messages. Typically “Model not assigned for ABC123”. In vPilot type “.aircraft” to show a window containing information about all planes loaded in the sim by vPilot. Error message “Model not assigned for ABC123” can mean several things: You do not have any aircraft matching the plane. Solution – install model and livery. At the time there might be a bug/error in Euroscope that prevents the correct packets being sent if the pilot uses FSinn as pilot client. Solution – no solution yet, awaiting Gergely. Model matching in vPilot should be automatic, but if any doubt I recommend “vmrgenerator” to generate a ruleset based on your installed models.
  2. Euroscope and vPilot

    I've seen other people online with ES radar on one side of the screen and a view from the tower on the other side of the screen. With the new vPilot update just out does anyone know if this is possible, if so how do you do it? Thanks in advance /Fredrik
