  1. How did this thread get to 3 pages from an original post that provided no proof but ‘their word’ that what happened....happened?. just wondering.
  2. Totally understand, I used it for my streams too, this is a screengrab from one of the streams, disregard the 'Zulu time' and 'Flight board' text, that was added by me(overlay for the stream) It alternated from Arrivals to departures(top left) with the white bar telling you which was being displayed.
  3. Air Manager V3 costs 65.00€!, Just download Virtual AWOS its free👍
  4. Andreas is right, no survey needs to be done, the system logs who connects in with what simulator/client. VATSIM did get over 1300 connections at one point last weekend I believe and not a single FSINN user was needed for that, so....
  5. In Windows 10 you can set volume levels for specific programs/apps and route them to different outputs. First make sure vpilot is running. In Windows search type 'sound' or 'sound settings' to get to that page, once there, there should be an option down the bottom for volume control 'App volume and devise preference'(it'll have an icon with a volume slider). Once you click it, the page should change to all the programs you've open and their individual volume level and audio output, make sure the vpilot slider is NOT all the way to the left.
  6. Wow, developers, can you feel the love? Just know that most of us believe in and love you all -- and know that everyone involved in our hobby owe you a tremendous debt of gratitude. Sorry Don, My choice of words was harsh, I meant that with all the parties involved it could take only one to be not interested in the issue because in the grand scheme of things it's a small issue effecting a small number
  7. The issue is with the model data, not the ability to be able to have a tower view using a proxy. Take Euroscope for example, does the aircraft data issue lie with Euroscope solely? or vpilot which is used for the .towerview command? or is it the client the pilot is using(xpilot, SWIFT, xSB, FSINN..etc)?. Each developer will have to firstly care about the issue, then diagnose and action it. Will that happen?, doubt it. Lots of aircraft look like tie fighters lately floating around with no gear. I actually asked an aircraft to confirm his gear was down before realizing it's a data is
  8. I too agree with Gabriel, tower view in my opinion is a must capability. Since the release of the new pilot clients the aircraft data is all messed up using the euroscope proxy server, some don't show their landing gear and some don't even show up full stop. I think an exception should be made for controllers wanting to use the observer mode in the pilot clients so they can utilize a towerview. I know the whole 'resources' argument is going to come up but we've multiple aircraft at anyone time flying long haul in uncontrolled airspace who are using resources without even interactin
  9. There is no country no matter how little there is ATC provided that doesn't not fall under some bureaucracy(Division/vACC) etc etc. I don't believe anywhere is 'opensky' anymore. Which is a shame.
  10. A 'live ATC' style system for listening in on active ATC would be great but isn't possible yet. You'll need to connect in your sim.
  11. How do you figure?. CPDLC provides position reports on a text basis instead of the use of HF/VHF to send them via voice. And who wants to sit on a position on VATSIM sending text messages to each other?. The occasional text pilot is one thing an entire position using only text, no thanks.
  12. You're not, I use vNAS's Oceanic tools v3 when I do Shanwick, it has a seperate, outside of Euroscope GAATs Map which moves the a/c data block on it based on position report timings and a position report system. I only use euroscope for the text box.
  13. So?, that is not the VATSIM BOG fault, someone takes the time to take and type up then publish the minutes. its up to the membership to go and read it before giving out about some lack of notice. Darren's main complaint/point is that they haven't set a date, well.....they haven't so how can they give a 14 day notice?. They'll be given a 14 day notice once the decision date for the AFV release date is made "... via VATSIM NOTAM system".
  14. Darren, VATSIM posts Board of Governor meeting minutes which a easily and publicly available for viewing >>>HERE<<<, as per the last meeting(BOG_2019-Q2_1); 3.3 Adhoc Votes Since the Previous Meeting To remove SquawkBox, SquawkBox747, SquawkBox for Fly!, XConnect and FSInn from the Approved Pilot Clients. To remove ASRC and SPARC from the Approved Air Traffic Controller Clients. To remove SquawkBox, FSInn, AVC and ASRC from the Approved Voice Software. To note the above changes as revision 1905. The effective date of this motion is to be preceded by a period of
  15. The understanding that VATSIM is a hobbyist network, has been lost along the way. There is currently a somewhat unreasonable push to make VATSIM an exact reproduction of national airspace systems. The best thing that has happened to VATSIM recently is the FOIA request denials from the FAA regarding airspace, letters of agreement, SOP's, and internal procedures. Hopefully this reduction in real world information will lead to a more relaxed approximation of national airspace systems, and not a word for word reproduction. The network exists because pilots want ATC. It's undeniable that th
  16. VATSIM goes through phases where certain 'phrases' are common in the community, pilots used to "request shutdown clearance" once parked. The one that I find common nowadays is pilots not knowing the difference between a Flight level and an Altitiude and say things like..."P[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ing flight level 4000 feet". I think if they hear it enough and its not corrected by ATC they percieve it to be correct. I don't hear "As filed" that much in Europe.
  17. No need to, simple forum search on past posts indicate that. Nobody is forcing you to get a 'Modern' flight sim, you're trying to force the community to keep the status quo because it suits your personal needs. Nobody is forcing you to purchase new aircraft with FMC's and probably new scenery. You mean the hard working volunteers who give up ther personal time to help make this hobby progress to the benefit of the community as a whole?. It is working, thanks to the skill, hard work and dedication of the developmet team volunteers, its been tested and p[Mod -
  18. Please elaborate. Please don't. This guy is out to troll people, dont fall for it . Arthur seems to not be taking the upcoming demise of FSINN well https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=78853&p=533519#p533519 He's an FS2004/FSINN user who wants to keep the status quo, yet does not take part in the spirit the network was founded on, ATC and pilots interacting and working together as evident by his own admission. May the network roll forward with the much needed updates and not be held hostage to people like this any longer.
  19. When did you join VATSIM and begin flying?, 2009?, sorry to burst your bubble but this was not the 'beginning'. I joined in 2003(which was still not the 'beginning') and there was plenty of both, maybe not in your part of the world but thankfully the world doesn't revolve around you. People won't always agree with your point of view, don't try hide your frustration behind an accusation of bias. Don't wonder too hard, people have varying work shifts, personal lives, personal prefences of scenery purchases, there is usually a miriade of reasons non of which may reflect on a
  20. Great logic *clap* *clap*. Good luck connecting and using your 'radar' with FSinn once AVF is released, bye bye . This isn't a job, I hope you realise that, you do realise that don't you?.
