Well exciting news, the final piece of the 3wire puzzle is coming together nicely. That piece is the zone selection algorithm that chooses which zone to be activated. It may not make much sense now but it is very important. By creating a method that constantly monitors which zones are nearby we are trying to offer input free flight, meaning, if you land on a wire anywhere you will be arrested no matter the situation. With the system we have it should not be necessary to intervene with 3wire, as you did in the old FS9 versions.
I've also been following the release of a few new carriers, particularly the Alphasim Su-33 package with the Admiral Kuznetsov. While only for FS9 at the moment, I'm sure if they make a FSX version then it will work perfectly with 3wire. In fact I have made a change to 3wire to accommodate a feature of the Russian carrier. More on that later though ;)

I've been working on the manager and I've added the ability to extract position data direct from FSX. This means the manager will enable you to create zones in much the same way as the old 3wire - easily! I have been doing it by hand up to date and its been a tedious task.
