  1. Or is there is another setup which is missing to do in the sim to deactivate the Static ATC and by that avoid this situation

    You can reduce the simulators volume for voices to 0.

  2. I have these problems as well, my laptop can't handle more than EuroScope, AfV and TeamSpeak (Coordination) together. I tried several browsers, but I cannot open a single chart when providing ATC. Trying to get an overview via QuteScoop is also not possible. And yes, it is always CPU load and not my internet connection like I initially thought.

  3. Hello Robbie,


    please report such incidents to the respective Division/vARTCC via their feedback form on the homepage or via mail. Then they can try to talk with the controller and train him. You can also try to call a supervisor via the ".wallop " command in your client. We have these fantastic guys, who will try to help you. Please don't hate VATSIM because of some individuals!


    And please be invited to my ATC homebase Berlin Tegel (EDDT), so we can show you that there are excellent controllers outside the US, who will be pleased to offer you service.

  4. Hi Jon,


    1. here on VATSIM we are a little bit like the UK parliament: We don't name people publicly - at least not in a negative aspect - and we also don't describe them in a way that makes them easy to identify (things like the callsign, especially when combined with the route). If you think you need to report a fellow member, you can send it to the VATSIM supervisors if it is about the Rules or Division/vACC/vARTCC/FIR-staff if it relates to ATC operations. In your case, you could have used a ".wallop" to report a pilot that is not responding and causing a conflict. A supervisor could have investigated the issue, if he is monitoring UNICOM or not or if he is just taken a short break, which is allowed by the CoC.


    2. Yes, most RVSM airspaces use the east/west rule to define the level, however, there are some exceptions like Italy with North/South rule and even some airways with different rules, because it fits the traffic better. I cannot tell you if that is the case with J80. Flight planning is really complicated and sometimes people do mistakes. I hope your flight was still a great experience.

  5. Hello Luka,


    if you want to connect to other VATSIM users from your area or even want to become a virtual Air Traffic Controller, you might want to contact the vACC responsible for Slovenia: It is called VATAdria and you can find their homepage here: http://vatadria.net/


    Kind Regards,



    (former vACC Director VATAdria)

  6. Hello Jakub,


    it is possible to do that. All you need is to define all sectors at a detailed level, that includes all areas that a switched between the stations.


    If you view for example the Berlin (EDBB) area, you will see, that we have 3 _APP and 1 _DEP position. http://files.aero-nav.com/EDWW


    N_APP is our primary sector and has ownership for all APP areas if only alone. The other stations are defined on top of that. All you need to do is taking a pen and paper and to make a plan, for which sectors you need multiple ownership and in which order this should take place.


    If you are responsible for the design of Sectorfiles in your vACC/FIR/vARTCC, you should consider using GNG, as it makes not only the creation of multiple ownerships a little bit easier, it also keeps your NavData current for free with just a few klicks every cycle change.

  7. The server does only check if the callsign is currently logged in. Prefiling, just like ATC booking, is just a declaration of the intention to do something. If there is a conflict, we need to do one simple thing: Talk to each other. It seems that you have done that in the case you described.


    Maybe the next version of the FSD-software (FSD is the protocol on the VATSIM-servers) will have a something like that implemented if you ask the dev guys kindly (or even help them coding).

  8. You can use GSX on every flight if you want to, nothing except your planes movement is transmitted to the servers.


    However, you cannot connect as a Follow-Me car yourself. In this case, the plane and the Follow-Me would be recognized by the servers.


    I hope this answers your question.

  9. In my opinion, yes my opinion, let the aircraft land. He/she has already accomplished placing themselves on final without [Mod - Happy Thoughts]istance and are concentrating on wind & weather to get the aircraft down.


    Sure, I will let the aircraft land. But I will also try to make him aware of me. I do not expect the pilot to call me instead of landing his aircraft. But I will offer him the possibility to make his own judgment, whether he is capable of calling me now or after landing.


    Speaking for myself, I am mostly using the iFly 737 together with FS2Crew and it is easy for me to let my virtual Copilot tune the radio, so I can get a proper landing clearance. If you have a similar setup, fine, go ahead and call ATC. If not, also fine. Land your aircraft and call ATC after leaving the runway.


    ATC knows, that you have a high workload. Don't think a "contact me"-Message is an angry shoutout to discipline you. It is mostly a text hardcoded in the Client (At least for EuroScope) that mind sound a little bit harsh but is solely meant to inform you.

    The festive season is coming up and two of our students want to earn themselves a rating upgrade for Christmas. They get the chance to do so during their Controller Practical Test on Saturday, Dec 15th, from 19-21z.


    You can support them by flying from/to/between the Alps in the skyline of Ljubljana (LJLJ) and the plains around Belgrade (LYBE). Both IFR and VFR are warmly welcome to offer Urban and Zeljko the possibility to show what they are capable of.


    You can find sceneries in the VATAdria Scenery List and charts in the eAIP of Slovenia and Serbia. See you in the skies.
