  1. I bet you the next person with the same problem is gonna love you for finding this thread with such a detailed description of the solution 🙃
  2. Final thought, but it'll only really be an option if you run vPilot through headset and everything else through a separate audio device. For the vPilot headset, access the same options window as picture two in my link above, and enable "Loudness Equalization", this is supposed to even out spikes and dips in volume, though I don't know how well it deals with this level of contrast.
  3. I've seen a lot of people struggle with this, yet I've never heard it. You could always try these settings for your AFV device, I don't know if it will actually help, though: https://imgur.com/a/R74pSjw
  4. We live in modern times, with restricted characters on our simulated 1980s computer architecture. Navigraph has a filtering feature on top of the list of charts for your selected aerodrome, so with some of those endless STAR-lists for certain European airports, just start typing in the first few letters there and it'll filter down to only relevant charts. Like so: https://i.imgur.com/utbrEEW.png In Europe, most of the time , your STAR will be named as the last point on your route plus the number-letter identifier. Exceptions exist, like here in the UK where you still find some nam
  5. Yes, as it does everywhere else anyone in this thread so far has mentioned. The discussion is not whether or not it is a thing, but whether it should available as an item in the Flight Rules-dropdown in the VATSIM clients. And IMO (and everyone else's it seems, happily), it shouldn't. SVFR is a clearance you get on the spot when your VFR flight is halted by less than VFR conditions, specifically to enter/exit the controlled airspace around an airport (CTR, Cl[Mod - Happy Thoughts] D, etc). It's not a set of rules you plan an entire flight under. We don't need that option, but Y and Z would be
  6. None of the current datafiles include controller info/ATIS. Email sent.
  7. This is the right answer, and how it's done in VatSca. I'm more in favour of our 10h/6months than I am in a monthly requirement though, as it's easier for people with busy lives to skip a month or two without falling out completely. A 30-60 minute check for inactive controllers is all that should be needed on return, unless more severe lapses in competency is found by the instructor.
  8. This is how it is in the real world too. If you've been out more than a few weeks, someone needs to sit with you when you're back. A mandatory 30-60min session with an instructor to pinpoint holes in one's knowledge is the better option. It fixes the issue of not knowing what's going on, as well as incentivising people to A; Don't go inactive, and B; don't get a refresher unless you actually mean to put in a few hours. Humans are notoriously bad at checking their own shortcomings, so the external input helps everyone in having a better time. As for quantifying it, I like my vACCs vers
  9. Ideally that should be selectable as the default in options, I reccon
  10. I fail to see how removing the dialog box and replacing it with ambigous buttons over a larger area requiring more "hunt-and-pecking" with the mouse is an improvement.
  11. You don't decide how others use the network within its rules. You're not the spokesperson for simmers who've been simming for many years, just because you've been simming for many years. You're promoting poor radio dicipline,which is a lose lose situation for everyone involved. Poor RT is completely unnecessary, makes you sound like a buffoon, and increases the chance of things going wrong. It's also much faster and far less frustrating to use correct RT, as it reduces the need for people to say again. The seconds you think you won by cutting words, you've lost twice over in confused
  12. VATUSA using VATBOOK? Preposterous! In the states I generally pick departure airports where ATC has been on for less than 40 minutes, that normally gives me cover out. Depending on the length of flight I can use the same logic for the destination, or the controller could have been nice enough to put a log-off time in their remarks, there could be an event going on, or it could be a place like ZBW or ZTL which seem to have more controllers online for longer more often.
  13. Great stuff figuring it out and posting the solution, too often googling problems sends me to dead threads with the same symptos but no solution. Some of the things Microsoft is doing with Win10 is driving me nuts, it's clear that they want to replace the old property window system for managing settings and admin stuff, but what they end up doing is putting half-complete user interfaces that restrict functionality and reduce the ease of locating the old property windows, while it's clear that some settings can only be accessed forcing through the new UI and finding the old window. Really
  14. Andreas, while you're working on funding ACARS for Martin's airline, could you find room in your budget for FlyBe as well? Would make my life easier!
  15. Hm? What do you mean "possibly"? I wasn't really arguing anything, just spreading the word that you can find pretty much all of European charts (IFR) in one place with one sign-in for free from an official source, and I quoted you specifically since you expressed frustration of the lack of a German AIP. It's not lacking anymore (hasn't for years), the next time you come across someone requesting free charts for Europe, you can let them know EAD Basic is an option As for actually doing E/F code routes on the network, that for me falls under the "depends on the person"-umbrella. After some
