  1. I think you intend to follow the policy as written but am confused by your wording. Essentially if it is so busy that we need a ramp controller, then it will cause confusion for pilots and increase controller workload if they have to use another frequency. Remember that if you do not cross couple, pilots will not be able to hear each other on the separate frequencies, which can lead to lots of step ons for the controller and cause a loss of situational awareness, and if you do cross couple to mitigate that issue, then you might as well have all aircraft on the same frequency. So the idea he
  2. Fair points to be sure. We did submit this policy as approved to all division directors for review and comment by their local facilities about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Something that has never been done in VATSIM’s history of policy writing, and something we will continue to do in the future. Not all policies are going to be agreed upon unanimously, but we do want the membership to have more input on the direction we take our network now and in the future. As far as top-down ATC goes, it’s something that was heavily debated but the underlying point that drove the policy the way it did was to pr
  3. SCX (Sun Country) does some flying for Prime Air
  4. The description has been updated to reiterate the request to not fly without a slot.
  5. This list is maintained by the developer of simaware and is completely separate from VATSIM.
  6. The Cross the Pond Team generates them and assigns them to the routes pilots get prior to the event starting.
  7. Yep. C_152 is not a model in MSFS. vPilot defaults to the Generic Airliner Quad Engines Asobo 00. Not sure why it did not for you. To fix this problem please copy and paste the following into your default model window, then hit apply and ok. Generic Airliner Quad Engines Asobo 00
  8. Still a lot of unknowns here. Did the Center Controller clear you for the Approach? If so, continue onto the Final Approach fix and he should clear you for landing or handed you off to the tower if online around there. If not, ask him if you're cleared to land, he may have been busy with other aircraft and forgot. If not, then ask the center controller if you are cleared for the approach.
  9. If you do not have an Approach or Center controller online, then you should contact the tower a mile or 2 prior to the final approach fix or about a 5 mile final. If you do have Approach or Center online, you should be with them already.
  10. The test resets after an hour. Log back into myVATSIM and you should be able to take it again.
  11. It's a lot of fun and gives you a great opportunity to visit small airports and do GA operations. I just wish they would update the airport codes to 2020 🙂
  12. Make sure that you have your audio control panel on your aircraft set correctly. It's possible that the functionality doesn't work correctly in the MSFS planes, due to the simconnect variables they use, but we would need to further test that to be sure.
  13. As an update. We are in discussion with Asobo about this issue. Please keep the bug reports coming!
  14. Check all of your router / modem settings to ensure that you don't have a problem locally, otherwise check with your ISP.
  15. Looks like an issue between your computer and your ISP.
  16. Have you checked that there should be aircraft next to you by using a utility like VAT-Spy or simaware.ca? If so and they are still invisible, please type ".aircraft" (no quotes) and take a screenshot of the window that pops up and post it to this thread.
  17. You need to enter in an aircraft type code in the box below as opposed to just selecting a recent aircraft. The recent aircraft list will work once you've connected to the network for the first time as a timesaving method, but honestly I just type my callsign and aircraft type in each time and don't use that feature.
  18. This is a Microsoft Issue and nameplates for VATSIM aircraft do not appear above other VATSIM aircraft. There currently is no way to change this. Microsoft is aware of the issue.
  19. can all of you experiencing these problems type .aircraft in your vPilot window and paste the screenshot of the Aircraft window here?
  20. The very large Mode C and IDENT buttons on the top of the vPilot window next to the connect and flight plan buttons🙂
  21. I have replied to you privately via email.
  22. Everyone. The question has been answered. No need to continue to have heated debates here. Let’s all take a few and cool off. Thanks.
  23. That's a whole other issue. The TCAS and traffic maps do not pick up VATSIM traffic as they haven't been programmed to do so. This is a good topic to submit to zendesk.
  24. Interesting as I've never had that happen with a vPilot update. Perhaps instead of doing an auto update, uninstall vPilot, download the update from the website, and reinstall vPilot from that update. Not as easy as an auto update, but it would be helpful to know if that caused you the same problems.
  25. It can take up to 24 hours for everything to sync up. Have you completed your P0 exam in myVATSIM?
