  1. Hey there, Use services like VATSpy to see who's online when you're ready to fly.

  3. I appreciate the Santa Claus comparison. I come from a game industry background professionally, and it's all too often that people expect a perfectly polished product straight out of the box. When developers state that they're going to continue driving updates into the product after release, that means they're dedicated to fixing the problems the consumers report. I expect this initial release to have some things that we, as flight simmers, do not appreciate or like but I also anticipate that they are very open to constructive, critical feedback so they can improve the Sim and create what we're looking for. I wouldn't be "afraid" or "worried" about this being behind the times in comparison to XP11 and I say don't worry because the developer has stated that they're committed to pushing regular updates to the sim. Ultimately, I'd say wait until August 18th to make your decision about the sim - remember, the videos being released by content creators and media are on preview builds, and they're still actively working on making updates and fixing bugs reported in the closed beta. I'm sure plenty of content creators are going to stream the new flight sim on release day, so if you wanna save your money until you can watch more content - you won't have to wait too long.

  5. Podcasts are pretty cool to do, especially if distributed properly and you gain traction. I had thought a VATSIM Podcast would be kind of cool as well, but I always think that filling up a 30-45 minute podcast with content that isn't repetitive is a pretty significant undertaking. If you can come up with the content, I personally think it's a great idea especially in the sense of proactive marketing strategy as podcasts reach audiences you normally wouldn't reach. Good luck, I say go for it! 🙂
  6. I appreciate all the interest in this role - we've received quite a lot of applications and I'm confident that with this application pool, we'll have sufficient to fill the open vacancies. The vacancy is now closed, and I am working through applications still. Everyone should receive a response relatively soon. Thanks again for your interest!

  10. Presumably, like any modern software you can control where it downloads/installs, and other games should not interfere with the MSFS installation.
  11. What Nestor said, unfortunately old posts were affected by the swear filter during a migration, this shouldn't be happening anymore though!
  12. Hey Corey, Up until yesterday, there was really only speculation about VATSIM's compatibility for Microsoft's new Flight Simulator. As we get closer to the release date, we'll have more information about how to use VATSIM with the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. Keep an eye on our Twitter and/or Facebook Page as well as here on our Community Forums for news and announcements related to MSFS. Outside of that, welcome to VATSIM! I've been flying for a few years now and I still love going up in a smaller GA plane, touring around different states and countries which is definitely something I recommend doing. Based off of what Microsoft has shown of the new Flight Simulator, the graphics are crazy and I'm sure there is plenty to look at for low-altitude VFR flying! As a new member to the network, I definitely recommend checking out the Pilot Resource Centre on our website, which you can visit by clicking here. There's a lot of really good information in the Pilot Resource Centre that'll help prepare you for your first flight on the network. Also, something I always recommend is that you ask questions! We have an active community here on our forums, and over 30,000 people in our Facebook Group and I'm sure there are plenty of those people who would be more than happy to answer your questions! Remember, Them helping you have a better understanding of how to fly on the network creates an overall better environment for them as well. Overall, welcome to VATSIM! We look forward to seeing you on the network soon. Thanks!
  13. I dropped about $120 on a Logitech Pro X headset, sound quality is great and the microphone has blue technology built in, so it's pretty good quality.
  14. Heya, I'd give it up to 24 hours for your account status to be distributed across the entire network.
  15. Congratulations to you both! @Zach Biesse-Fitton I know you'll do well!
