  1. Sidestepping the wishlist for a moment, considering the rather "confined/focused" feel of vERAM and vSTARS as is relates to their facility files, visranges, etc., as it relates to Supervisor duties are there plans to increase functionality there? VRC is simply out of the box boom it works, whereas with the other clients I can't readily hop across the world to check on a target. Or would you suggest we just look to VatSys for now?
  2. Make sure your selector switches on your radio stack in the plane are set correctly for receive and transmit and power. VPilot reads those states to determine what it needs to do. If there is a mismatch then it won't work.
  3. When you say crisp and sharp, do you in reality mean high detail? If so then you'll likely need to get third-party scenery add-ons, because with FSX being A.) As old as it is, B.) Designed for 32-bit software and thus encountering the 4GB memory limit, and C.) Designed to be processor-heavy and not GPU-heavy, there's only so much that vanilla FSX can do in terms of its textures not looking like mud. Additionally, remember that the textures are designed to be viewed at altitude, not up close at ground level. Same idea as when you zoom in too much on a picture and it turns pixelated. I'm
  4. vPilot only facilitates the proper network connections for shared cockpit / observer mode: http://vpilot.metacraft.com/Docomeentation.aspx#shared-cockpit You also have to go through the setup process in your flight sim client to set it up as well. Here's a few videos explaining it: ***Please note though, only use the vPilot observer mode when you're working with another pilot as the primary user on your shared flight. If you connect by yourself in observer mode as a way to "observe" and not show up on the network, Supervisors may start contacting you in regards to an ina
  5. Hey Baruch! Here's some old info I found through some forum searching and checking of archive.org http://web.archive.org/web/20070421000957/http://users.adelphia.net/~jbartosh02/vat_faq.htm#V-2 (Scroll around, other good ancient info there too!) Another source I would suggest is the first few BoG Meeting Minutes from 2001: https://www.vatsim.net/meeting-minutes/bog Hope it helps!!
  6. My understanding is it's so that the Oceanic controllers are simulated with the appropriate text radio range by the network. That's exactly why. The network gives _FSS special range handling to enable the controller to do his job.
  7. (Disclaimer: citing US regulations here, may not apply in ICAO-areas) From the AIM as of 11/10/16, section 4-4-10, "Adherence to Clearance" paragraph g: And from FAA 7110.65 section 4-3-2, "Departure Clearances" note at the end of the section: So, in summary, if ATC told you to climb and maintain FL270 for whatever reason and your cruise was FL350, and you had a step climb coming up, hate to sound harsh but you're not going to make it. You're going to have to wait until ATC gives you the next climb instruction, because you were told to climb and maintain the stated altitu
  8. So you're wanting like what you have in real-world GA aviation, where the cabin intercom is voice-activated but the radio is PTT. Ok, here's how: 1. Get in a teamspeak channel with the pilot you want to be able to talk with 2. Have your teamspeak audio set up as voice activated 3. Make your mute microphone hotkey the same as your push to talk key for your pilot client Now, when you key up to talk to ATC, you'll automatically stop going out in your friend's ear in the teamspeak channel with you. Hope it it helps!!
  9. Jamie mentioned there was something acting up with it, I'll give him a shout to chime in with more information.
  10. Have you observed this error with VRC?
  11. Then get something put together with other interested pilots on the network. As long as it does not violate the VSOA policy you should be fine. For reference:
  12. Rather off-topic, but as a friendly suggestion I would like to caution you against using the title Supervisor and/or the abbreviation SUP for what you described, only because it could lead to confusion possibly on the network. I would recommend TMU (Traffic Management Unit) instead, which I have seen used elsewhere.
  13. SEFG is the FIR, SEGU is Guayaquil Airport. See here: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=68441
  14. As you said, and as mentioned here: viewtopic.php?p=509864#p509864 I would recommend running some queries against the url0 datafeeds. You could have it search for a specific CID and callsign fragment combination ([Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming they entered it right, i.e. DAL and not DVA) and store that data as it finds it.
  15. Hi Juergen, If you were forcibly removed from the network by a supervisor or administrator, then that SUP/ADM would have sent you an email stating why. I would recommend reviewing that email and if you are still confused, contact that supervisor to see what additional information they can provide you. If you feel the supervisor acted improperly, you can always contact the VP of Supervisors, Tim Barber, at [email protected]
