  1. They need to parse the new data feed. There are solutions - the virtual airlines just need to implement them. Cheers!
  2. Is FSUIPC installed and working with FS9? Cheers Luke
  3. I hope I am jumping the gun a bit here but given that there's been complete silence both on the forums and to my e-mails regarding access I'd like to throw a few things out there for you to consider. I have been very critical of VATSIM's technology development ecosystem over the years. I've been significantly less active over the years for two reasons - one, my life has moved in different directions and online flight with ATC isn't a priority for me, but most importantly you have been doing things way, way better than before for the past year or two. I don't want to understate it - there
  4. What's worse is that the "new" data feed (even from v2 to v3) removes certain important fields that breaks applications, including our own. Some of us have been warning VATSIM about this for several weeks and months without any official response only to be told to email someone (which says something about the importance VATSIM gives to these forums ... and by implication our feedback). We need a structured text feed like JSON ... what we do NOT need is something that removes critical data fields and complete radio silence from VATSIM when we point this out in advance. Luke
  5. Looks like the v2 feed went down as well... and I'm broken because the controller position got removed. 😞
  6. Does that mean there has been a bug filed against FSD? I'm not sure how adding lat/lon to a data feed for a few dozen controllers breaks things whereas that field for over 1,000 pilots does not. This is an important feature for me, and I'll need to stick to the V2 feed for now. Luke
  7. Is there any update or status from VATSIM on this? It's getting close to blocking a release of mine, or I'll need to code against the v2 data feed. Cheers! Luke
  8. I'd be curious to hear how many Virtual Airlines actually have this model, and have maintained it for several years. I used to see it some years back (joinava?) and the forums seemed full of repositioning requests when there was a shortage of a given equipment type and all of the 772s were in SXM for some reason. 🙂 Given how little outreach PMDG seems to have done, I question how much uptake their is going to be. That being said, you can't see for sure until you see it. Cheers! Luke
  9. I think where I'm getting to is that if a specific aircraft is in a place outside of the VA's schedules, that's entirely the pilot's issue, not the virtual airline's. Cheers! Luke
  10. Sorry, how does the second sentence imply the third? FWIW, PMDG doesn't appear to have reached out to any Virtual Airlines I am a member of. Cheers! Luke
  11. It would be exponentially simpler to just have the lat/long plus the range (which is already in the feed) and do a simple distance calculation rather than a lot more data pushed to the clients and a more complicated algorithm. I don't need perfect sector boundaries, just way to filter the ATC list. Why was it removed? Cheers Luke
  12. To determine controllers potentially in range of a pilot when flying, as well as plotting them on a map. Cheers! Luke
