  1. If the issue is that there isn't enough people willing to host this file, I would be happy to add myfsim.com to that list. If there is a need, please email me as I don't log on to the forums here very often. I can be reached at mtn1474 [//[ AT ]//] caseydiers.com. Please provide me with some sort of idea of what kind of traffic I should expect, but I don't think it would be a problem. I have hundreds of GB/mo of traffic that I'm not using on this server. myfsim.com I currently have roughly 4.5 nines of uptime over the past two years. (about 30 min down per year)
  2. Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here we go: My scripts which dynamically p[Mod - Happy Thoughts] the different servers locked on to vattastic and it brought my whole service down. further testing showed that net-flyer is also down. Can we please have http://data.vattastic.com/vatsim-data.txt and http://www.net-flyer.net/DataFeed/vatsim-data.txt removed from the server list at http://stats.vatsim.net/status.txt? Or do our scripts now have to check to see if those files are up before using them as well. I ha thought that whatever feeds the status.txt page was idiot c
  3. If you are controlling in the US, try here.
  4. These files are available for download, with instructions, here: http://www.myfsim.com/sectorfilecreation/vSTARSDump.php BUT, before you download it, note that this file only covers the US (or any airspace that the FAA maintains in their databases) as that is the only data that I have access to. So if you are outside the US (or its territories), downloading these files will be a step backward rather than a step forward. These files are updated with every airac. As with anything in life, be sure to back up the original files. If you have a problem with these files, they may re
  5. Please turn up the volume on your mic next time. As I indicated multiple times in my transmissions, you were about 2x3 meaning I could barely hear you and you were quite broken as well. Additionally, and somewhat more importantly, the attitude you indicate was not present. Thanks for flying ZDV and I look forward to seeing you next time! Sincerely, DEN_E_TWR
  6. aren't the Vatsim metars used by controllers the same as those available to pilots who choose to use Vatsim weather? pilots can chose to use other weather, but there will never be any way to force pilots to use Vatsim weather.
  7. Yes. Of course. When I said that, I was [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming that was clear to everyone. That comment was referring to earlier in the thread where I said that we confirmed that on the real world scopes they cannot see aircraft on the ramp on their scopes. So what I was saying was, the difference between real world and vSTARS could be precisely that. They can't see them in the real world because of the obstructions, and that isn't modeled by vSTARS. Good lord, making MSAWs is bad enough, if we had to input terrain or other obstruction info......
  8. Yes, that did it. It looks like it was the fact that the radar site actually sits below the airport by a couple hundred feet. So what was happening was that TDM wasn't activating. And therefore aircraft that hadn't filed a flight plan yet were showing up as primary targets only, with none of that other useful info. Bummer that we can't use the real elevation data for that radar site.. but... oh..... wait..... Ok, now I don't care anymore. Thanks all. Harold, I'll email you a link to the file with this fix in it.
  9. Yea, you might be right. BUT.... both of those numbers (as best as I can tell) are accurate. If you look at an topo map of the area around KDEN, it is a real mess. And just because it is below the actual airport, doesn't mean they can see ground traffic on their scopes. What with buildings and such..... Let me test a couple different set ups with this info in mind.
  10. I don't think so, but I will try it again to be sure. Now the order of events is a little hazy to me.
  11. Hah. Yes. I did that while testing and I guess I forgot to put it back. That is the site nearest to KDEN and I was trying to figure out why TDM wasn't working. I didn't think that was the issue, but was testing with the negative value. Doing so [obviously] allowed me to see the aircraft on the ground, but didn't seem to make TDM work at all. No, the radar site doesn't look down. The actual floor slope should be "0.459", just like the other one. And we have confirmed that the RW radar site cannot 'see' aircraft on the ground due to the slope, so I'm pretty sure that floor slope is acc
  12. As promised: <RadarSites> <RadarSite IsPrimary="true" Character="I" ID="IRO" Elevation="5269" FloorSlope="-4" PrimaryRange="60" SecondaryRange="120" ConeOfSilenceSlope="49.95"> <Location Lon="-104.67433" Lat="39.82334" /> </RadarSite> <RadarSite IsPrimary="false" Character="P" ID="PLA" Elevation="4991" FloorSlope="0.459" PrimaryRange="60" SecondaryRange="120" ConeOfSilenceSlope="49.5"> <Location Lon="-104.71858" Lat="40.296639" /> </RadarSite> </RadarSites> <RadarSite>-1</RadarSite>
  13. I'll post the radar site section here. Ross, is there some way I can get our whole file to you? I was wondering if TDM isn't working because maybe the KDEN altitude is incorrect? I don't know how to check that base file.
  14. Hello all, I've been working on sector files for the VATUSA's ZDV ARTCC. I am in the process of creating a new one for KRAP (the RCA_APP position) based on an image file I stumbled across online. Throught the help of Noah Bryant, I was pointed to a method for taking an raster image, converting it to a vector file, using a program called MapScan to Geo-reference it, and then spit that out into a program that created coordinates that can be pasted into a sector file. Here is a link that will help for those that didn't understand what I just said: https://www.msu.edu/~soaresyu/Sector_f
