  1. Code of Conduct section A17 The first sentence is a general ban on recreating flights, the second is the specific callsign reference. Both parts need to be considered
  2. Only basic copy/paste unfortunately, however most of it was likely information contained in our Pilot Resource Centre. Take a look there, and if you'd like to learn a little further you can always get help through one of the many Authorized Training Organizations that provide pilot training! Welcome to VATSIM!
  3. You could create an alias for it to be something like .cm or similar, and put whatever text you want it to say.
  4. Also, unless VATSIM changes their current server setup this cannot happen. VATSIM clients do not pull from the live server, but rather via an automatically generated status.txt file which shows the location, altitude, etc for each connection. That is only written every so often, and can only be accessed to update a display program at a corresponding rate. To get live data, you have to be physically logged into the live server
  5. Again it's important to know what model of B738 you're referring to. If it's a default-type model, or a payware which models the systems more accurately. Presumably based on your questions of "from GPS to NAV" it's a default aircraft system. In that case, you would want to switch to HDG hold once you're pointed toward the intercept point (usually as Mark said it 2000ish AGL and 10 miles, but check the charts for your particular airport). You would then verify that you're receiving the correct station on your NAV1 radio (via the Morse code IDent or the displayed alphanumeric code if you hav
  6. Are you trying to follow the ILS to land maually, or perform an auto-land with the ILS? Navigating via the ILS is relatively straightforward, however if you're trying to let the airplane land itself it requires a more complex aircraft and sometimes special procedures depending on the aircraft you're using.
  7. Disregard, I RTFM'd again and realized there was an all in one for elevation data.
  8. That's an interesting program that I hadn't known of before. Just a question I have that hopefully you can answer Andreas, for the GLOBE data do I need to download each tile for the world or get the consolidated source file?
  9. Haha shameless plug (but seriously it's leaps and bounds better than what XSB offers "out of the box" especially for newer members. If you did not see any messages, and did not receive an email to your registered VATSIM account (check SPAM just in case) then it was likely either a timeout with the client or server you were connected too. If you were disconnected by a supervisor then you would have received an email stating the reason why your connection was terminated.
  10. It is frustrating to fly and be doing "what you're supposed to" as far as monitoring and transmitting on UNICOM...while dozens of other people are not. However, I'd submit that you should make yourself an example instead of being part of the problem. This (people not transmitting critical flight information) is something the network is currently looking at, currently transmissions are not required by Code of Conduct...but that is subject to change. Will voice UNICOM help? Maybe Will there probably be people who abuse it? Definitely Unfortunately we see people "forget" the purpose of U
  11. I am currently part of 1 that requires the flight time, and another that encourages it for "bonus points". It is interesting, but I have to say I find it takes away from the realism rather than enhances it for me.
  12. In the message or command line type .msg (callsign) (message) and it will then open a new chat if I recall correctly.
  13. Actually following up on what Ross put...what are you trying to use as your PTT? If I recall there are some keys that won't recognize as PTT due to conflicts in the SIM/computer.
  14. One common issue that brings this up is 1) do you run P3D as an admin, and 2) is vPilot similarly set to run as an admin on launch (or is launched as an admin manually). Also, and this may be unnecessary to ask but are you tuned to an active ATC frequency? Voice is only permitted to tx on ATC frequencies as the controller "creates" the voice room during our connection process. So no ATC, no voice as it stands currently.
  15. Many addon aircraft set their "default" frequency. I believe Majestic uses 118.600, and it's either Aerosoft or PMDG that uses the 128.300.
  16. That's what I figured it was, but wanted to clarify. As you already seem to be aware all of those are against our rules...so when they do happen a .wallop is of course the preferred option, however barring that if you're able to docomeent the evidence I outlined and forward it to us we're happy to take a look at the incident after the fact when it's such a severe breach. As I said this is a serious concern for the entire Supervisor department, and those caught engaging in such activities are handled appropriately.
  17. Zain, While I know it's very frustrating to have to experience this, it is one of the hazards of doing anything in a multiplayer world while broadcasting. Believe me when I say it's not something unique to VATSIM, but that we do take it very seriously. "Sniping" is a top priority to address for the Supervisor team, and leads to serious consequences very quickly for the person who's doing it. That said, unfortunately while we do do our best to always have coverage there are times when nobody is available to provide supervision, we're working on it...and bringing in people as we can to try to
  18. Just added it to the Anchorage ARTCC discord, seems nice except it doesn't handle SUP (or presumably ADM) ratings. It changed my rating from I1 to OBS.
  19. Just curious if you are aware of (or if it works) the ".comm1 xxx.xxx" command to have vPilot, SB etc tune your primary frequency for you? Some a/c I've noticed it does not work all the time because of different system modeling, but if it does and you have time to type a reply...you could easily change frequencies and check in properly instead ([Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming that you're using voice of course).
  20. I never once said you were "freeloading" or "stealing" the event. I completely agree with you that it's what VATSIM is supposed to be about...ATC controls and Pilots fly. My concern was primarily in your wording, which does make it seem, apparently incorrectly, that you were taking credit for organizing the event. I've routinely seen a group flight of 5-10 pilots organize and contact ATC facilities to request ATC staffing, and at least at Anchorage we're more than happy to accommodate that with a bit of notice, typically for that size group we'll try to ensure at least CTR and APP is staffed,
  21. I understand that this is a groupflight, however as I said I find it to be extremely rude that you decided apparently at random to choose this date/time to fly into PAJN, which just so happens to be during an advertised event for our ARTCC. When you say "A Groupflight event is an event organized by pilots and VAs, and as long as the event is clearly described and promoted as a Groupflight event, obviously no one would entertain the idea that we somehow provides / organizes the ATC coverage in Alaska. I would like to know how you can then claim in your original post that there will be "event" A
  22. Hi Muxi, I find it a bit concerning that your post seems to allude that you have organized this event for the community, when the Alaksa ATC coverage is in fact due to an event sponsored and created by the Anchorage ARTCC to encourage flying from PANC-PAJN in a "crossfire" situation. While we're happy of course for any traffic that arises, it's a shame you seemed to think it was ok to misrepresent your role in organizing this event. In case anyone is interested in a shorter run, event details for the official Anchorage ARTCC event can be found at https://forums.vatusa.net/index.php?topic=85
  23. Have you tried contacting the VA staff directly or through the contact us form on their website? I managed to get at least to that far (contact us form) and didn't seem to be any errors.
  24. viewtopic.php?f=132&t=78028 is a great place to start, as I see your account is still very new. Give it at least 24 hours, and if it's still not working let us know. The majority of connection "errors" however are attributed to either logging in before the servers have updated with your information, or the wrong CID/P[Mod - Happy Thoughts]word (spaces, extra characters, etc).
  25. You're welcome! Glad you got it sorted out. Windows has "always" (circa Win7) been funny about how programs interact.
