This would be useful if someone taxied into your runway and they need to change your approach, and on TS1.
Totally agree on this. When I am controlling, people frequently either line up for the wrong runway or hold short the wrong runway. Having this command for both tower and ground would be a big help!
I usually give a go around, “enter straight in correct runway” or “follow instructions” command. Most of the time this works for me. But yeah this definitely would be useful, it’s happened a lot of times to me.
I do use the pattern instructions on tower to redirect them to the correct runway too. However I think sometimes people think I just misunderstood / made a mistake. Most of the time if I keep reissuing the pattern instructions they eventually comply. I also use “wait clearance before landing”. Of course there are a bunch of people that just want to do what they want to do and no commands (on training server) will help.
I don’t think “follow instructions” is available on training server. I think that now exists only on expert.
Ground is tougher since, as tower, there is nothing other than “hold short” to redirect people. I presume some set of people really think they are holding short the right runway and I am just trying to tell them to be patient.
In reality I am trying to tell them this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_akwHYMdbsM. :)

“Yeah. How would he know where we are going?”
