3D ATC Tower On Expert Server

I don’t think any of our current expert controllers would prefer to have a limited line of sight, so I don’t know why this is only for the expert server? Second, the unneeded lag this would create is enough to say this would be a pretty horrible idea to implement anytime soon. Third, I’d really dislike this and never use it personally.


I don’t see how this would make sense on its own without 3D buildings. Feature to ahead of it time. I agree with @Trio

It would make it more realistic though, and how it has an irl line of sight

I understand, but I couldn’t add more viewing options because it was stated that you can only ask for one feature per thread and trust me, I have a lot of ideas for that.

Looks great, voted!

Later today I would edit it a bit more to fit what I was actually going to say, I was rushing the typing this morning as I had to attend school.

Maybe the view for controllers could be the same but to pilots you can see a tower? As in it would only be visible to pilots

Pilots can see the tower, yes, I forgot to add that, will do it later today.

As of 2015, there were 17, 678 commercial airports alone. This doesn’t include the countless GA airports that have a tower. This number is likely to have increased, so this still presents lag as a huge issue. Yes, seeing an ATC tower would be nice, but the costs outweigh the benefits.

Even if we got 3D towers for all of the airports in the game, I feel like ATC would turn into an AirForceProud95 video.



I agree with you, it would limit sight from the tower.

He is not asking for a physical tower building.
It is a request for a 3D TWR interior for controllers…similar to a virtual cockpit.

Oh I missed that follow-up, I really couldn’t tell from the OP

A nice fov feature would be nice or in the part where you see the list of aircrafts, click “Overview” and you will see an airplane, I want to add this but would this be asking for too many features??

What follow up?

It’s an allright idea. I think it would make the controllers view of the field realy hard. I dont think it would be a good idea personally.

Adding an FOV view and overview when you click on a plane though. @Luke_King-kong

Nice idea, voted (1 year later…)
