  1. 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.
  2. can all of you experiencing these problems type .aircraft in your vPilot window and paste the screenshot of the Aircraft window here?
  3. The very large Mode C and IDENT buttons on the top of the vPilot window next to the connect and flight plan buttons🙂
  4. I have replied to you privately via email.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. It can take up to 24 hours for everything to sync up. Have you completed your P0 exam in myVATSIM?
  9. Prefiling is super convenient when you are preplanning and using something like pfpx or simbrief. Everything prepopulates and you hit send. Then you can just connect and call up atc without having to use the flight plan window. I find that a bit more clunky than using prefile.
  10. Those are likely being added back in by the website for clarity. As far as ATC goes, the hyphen is not recognized or input into the system in the real world. The controller would see CGLKT. Therefore the more modern clients on VATSIM do not allow for the hyphen.
  11. I can't confirm it, but all the requests are currently handled by one person. Give it a couple of days and if it has not been processed, try emailing pilot training,
  12. if the freeware developers create the models and paints then I don't see why not. The issue right now is that the legacy models and paints from FSX P3D do not work with MSFS and thus must be made new. Once that happens, there is no reason on our side that they would not be able to work on VATSIM with a new VMR
  13. Yes, that’s why you need to constantly be monitoring your flight 🙂
  14. do note that you can use time compression on VATSIM in uncontrolled airspace. you can even use it in controlled airspace if the controller allows it. Reference VATSIM CoC B9
  15. you can send your suggestions for events to the local facility events coordinator and are welcome to try to arrange groupflights with other pilots. However formal events have to be submitted by either a vACC staff or the staff of a partner virtual airline.
  16. vACC's are all controlled by the divisions and regions. So one does not just start a vACC. If you are interested in providing ATC in a certain area and there is no local vacc, it is likely combined with another one. Best bet is to send an email to the division director in that area and they can point you in the right direction.
  17. As far as I'm aware there is not addon that allows for this in the FSX Default GPS. You're probably going to need a new gauge or other replacement here. I don't know of any freeware offhand
  18. https://www.flightsimulator.com/august-27th-2020-development-update/ In short, simconnect performance bug should be fixed once the Microsoft Flight Simulator update goes live within the next 7 days.
  19. The more traffic online that has to be rendered, coupled with weather and scenery can easily overwhelm your system during busy events. So that is likely what caused it. Incorporating Microsoft Flight Simulator would have nothing to do with your local frame rates.
  20. It doesn't need to be. We have been in direct communication with them all week about the issue.
  21. No reason to feel upset or betrayed. Microsoft and Asobo have been very good about working with us and are well aware of the issue. We have been in constant communication about it and hope to have a resolution soon.
  22. Traffic should be injected at any level, but you would only want to see VATSIM traffic. Selecting group would then remove live AI traffic and MSFS multiplayer server traffic, leaving you with just VATSIM traffic. Unless there has been further changes, this is how it worked in testing.
  23. Remember that pilot ratings are completely optional. You can still fly on VATSIM and in events with a P0. The new pilot ratings are meant to challenge you to pursue further knowledge of the content above what was contained in the legacy P1 rating. The knowledge needed for that rating was the equivalent of today's P0.
