  2. I've thought about making a controller client that is specifically for tower, but I realized that it would still need a radar screen, since many towers have a radar, so why not just make the radar clients support tower view? Which is what I did with vSTARS, and what Gergely did with Euroscope.

  3. ATC are there to serve the pilot that is their number one job, they are not the authority of the skies, if you are unable to accept anything ATC is "offering" you, then say so.

  4. "Irritating"? "Irritating""!? That song freaking slaps, dude. 😄 I hum that tune on almost every approach. Kidding aside, Tobias has got it absolutely perfect, there isn't a single thing to add. I personally found my learning curve to be quite interesting: There is a huge bump on the first handfull of flights, as compliance with ATC instructions adds a whole new level of workload you will be completely unfamiliar with if you've only been flying offline. That's why it's imperative you are able to efficiently manage your workload aside from that when you go in, as in, fly an aircraft th

  5. Connecting as observer is fine, especially when you do it for learning purposes. The COC states that being connected as an observer for "excessive" amounts of time is not allowed, but in practice, as long as you don't keep the connection unattended or use vatsim as a "screensaver", you'll be fine. Observers are not visible to others as traffic or active ATC (though some clients do list observers as such), so you're not disrupting anyone, even if you move / fly around. You are essentially invisible. The only thing to keep in mind is that an observer connection still uses bandwidth and server ca

  6. Hello Patrik from one newbie to another! I totally understand your concerns, i was concerned too my first flight, which was only this week... 7 years after creating my account. My biggest advice as its so fresh in my memory.. pick an aircraft which you know like the back of your hand. you know where each switch is and what it does.The Zibo Mod for example is as complex or as easy as you wish for it to be. There are some excellent guides out there on how to effectively control it, if you're not experienced already, however the FMC within the mod is simple to program and use so

  7. answer to number one if you are operating a shared cockpit flight with someone else then it is advised that one connects as an observer onto the network. answer to number two no your account will not be suspended if you are a newbie. we were all once in the same position as you. just take your time and ask questions if you dont understand anything a controller might ask you to do.
