  1. This is ludicrous. I could fly the default FSX 737 and you wouldn't know, outside of maybe the equipment suffix but it'd be a toss up between default 737 or simulating deferred FMS. I'm much more experienced and I know how to use the tools, or lack thereof, the default 737 has. There are many pilots on this network that can say the same. There are also a lot of pilots on this network with the NGXu, Zibbo, whatever, and they have no clue what they are doing and usually end up destroying an event. The plane a pilot chooses doesn't matter so much as the skill of the pilot. The same is true for th
  2. Well, the reason I thought "easy mode" or whatever you want to label it, is because it is my hope some of the less realistic, ease of use VRC features would also be available when controlling a radar position with vSTARS or vERAM, not just ground or tower. Personally speaking, I have zero desire to use the current version of these clients because it is more complex than I want to be. In my opinion it was fine for them to be more realistic because VRC existed for those not wanting that, but with the eventual retirement of VRC those people are left out in the cold. I opened up vSTARS to rem
  3. I'll be a little blunt, this is disappointing. I do not like using vSTARS and vERAM in their current form, I'm not after the most realistic environment. I have no ambition to be a real controller, I do it on this network as a hobby for entertainment. While I understand the desire to trim the fat from the projects you maintain, this also feels like a move that says we either have to be uber realistic or gtfo. For me, if the mentioned changes to the clients don't mimic VRC enough, I'm unfortunately out. I really wish VRC would just be open sourced, but I know that's been shot down in the past.
  4. You can still use FLAi if you have it, there simply won't be anymore updates and it can't be re-downloaded. It should be suitable until a replacement from somebody else comes about.
  5. The new ICAO flight plan use to let me leave my alternate blank if I wasn't filing one, today it told me that field is required. I just typed in NONE, but this field shouldn't be required. I'm not sure about the rest of the world, but in the US a domestic flight planned under domestic rules can remove the alternate based on the 1-2-3 rule (121.619). There are other rules and OPSPEC for this, but the most basic of basic 121 rules regarding alternates is that we can remove our alternate provided we have the right weather forecast. I send RW ICAO flight plans without an alternate all the time. Ca
  6. I've been using the new prefile since it launched, I'm enjoying it! I use the ICAO format for the 121 airline I work for in the US, so it's nice to have somthing familiar. I'm flying out of China today and they use meters, VATPRC asks that pilots file in meters so my release is in meters initially with a step climb to imperial when I leave PRC. The prefile import didn't read the meters or speed in my flight plan though, could this be fixed? I pasted my ATS strip in from PFPX. Here is the first part of it, I assume this is the part that gets read by the importer for speed and cruising alt
  7. My ISP provided modem was giving me headaches and showing a lot of uncorrectable codes and they refused to fix it, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and I bought my own modem. I've been connected to Vatsim for about an hour and a half and not a single AFV disconnect. So it wasn't the router, my settings, W10 update, it ended up being the modem. I will say it does seem that AFV is awfully sensitive.
  8. There is a button in the upper right that says "Process ICAO FPL". You can paste your ICAO flight plan from PFPX or Simbrief and it puts everything where it needs to go. Pretty intuitive in my opinion.
  9. Did anybody do anything server side to AFV at 8-21-2020 around 1900z? I was mid flight on a long haul and suddenly was able to make it about 45 minutes without any disconnection from AFV. Much better than the usual disconnect every 5-15 minutes. It returned for a few minutes and then I went another 40 minutes without a drop. It unfortunately came back after that.
  10. I've tried both ethernet ports and no luck, and I have the latest driver. With what seems to be "many" people having this issue, I'm thinking it's either a common router setting conflicting with something about AFV, or something that changed with AFV (if anything did). I did a long haul over the Atlantic with no issues and the next day started experiencing this and it hasn't stopped since. My only change was a Windows update.
  11. intermittent Now that I am back from vacation I've been able to take a look. I can see the heartbeat and everything seems fine, the disconnects seem to happen when I get a flood of SSDP traffic, I presume for uPnP, or DNS query traffic in between the heartbeat. There is traffic from AFV to me, and then the SSDP/DNS traffic, and then traffic from me to AFV, but that seems like it is the vPilot reconnecting as the time since first frame resets at that point. It happens mostly with SSDP traffic, sometimes DNS, and once it happened with nothing else going on. So for some reason the connect
  12. Ok, I was able to find the TCP traffic as well, nothing unusual that I can see for voice or the FSD server.
  13. I'm trying to analyze packets on my network to see if there are any issues, I was able to identify AFV traffic using UDP port 50000 but there is too much TCP traffic to make a clear determination as to what is Vatsim/AFV. Am I correct to assume AFV is only using UDP? I had no issues with the traffic I could see while experiencing disconnects.
  14. Out of curiosity, what build of Windows 10 are you on? Did you update all the way to the new 2004 version? I only ask because you're saying this is happening on a new system, and it has occurred to me this started happening after I pushed through the new 2004 update. If you're on W10 Home v2004, I wonder if there is something going on with that version that the AFV Team can chase down.
  15. Same issue, sorry for not posting in the appropriate forum.
