  1. If a pilot wants to step away, you can either put 'AFK' in the fourth line or you could just dwell lock the aircraft to make a mental/visual note that he's not there. I do this often at work when I need to descend an aircraft and it has multiple point outs that need to be done. I put in the lower altitude and highlight "dwell" the aircraft. I then throw the PVD's on everyone that I need and wait for them to approve my automated point out. Once it is done, I descend the aircraft to the lower altitude.
  2. Why not just beat the FAA to the punch? Just have the icon turn on automatically when the aircraft switches to the frequency? That's the plan for the wi-fi icon any ways when data comm comes online in a year or so. This way we know a pilot is tuned to the frequency and can be reach via text if he isn't listening.
  3. I don't know anyone who runs with the portal fence displayed in my area. But from what I've been led to believe. Eventually, there will be a white box in the same line with the aircraft id that indicated whether an aircraft is data communications capable. Below that is the Visual Communications Indicator and below that is the Track control tag. From what I gather, they are trying their hardest to make everything that is displayed on the EDST displayable on the Radar screen as well. In the next couple of months, automated point outs will be introduced. I haven't gotten to play with th
  4. Unfortunately Vatsim doesn't have flight data processing like the NAS does. When we QU FIX CID in the real world, the flight data program knows what fixes are left of the aircraft's route as well as where the aircraft is located in time and space. So when you try to shortcut someone using AM CID RTE SOMEFIX it doesn't know what to do with it. In the real world, we had to do what is it called a 6-7-10 amendment where : 6 was the reference fix AIR230050. 7 was the time you wanted to enter into the computer for it know when it was at the fix. 10 was the route... You had to put
  5. In the Real World, we have electronic strips allowing us to access all active and proposed flight plans for the air fields we provide IFR service into and out. The flight plan system for each ARTCC will [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ign a beacon code to all it's departure airfields automatically. When we get a call asking for an IFR clearance off an airfield that we provide service, we will issue the clearance and then create a track as a visual reminder that an aircraft at this field has been given a clearance and we can not issue any other IFR clearance into or out of this field, ie. one in one o
