  1. Wow, this looks amazing! Good job!
  2. Might have been a problem with the dataserver. Issue should now be resolved ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Welcome Andrew! First, are you able to properly connect to the network? If so the client will display a yellow messaged with something like ยซconnected to network...ยป. Do you get that, or a red warning?
  4. No is the answer. ๐Ÿ™‚ https://vasops.vatsim.net/ Application guidelines is under "apply"
  5. Hi Andreas! We are currently building a brand-new website, which will replace the existing one. The new one will be tailored to the 16:9 aspect ratio, thus updating the current one is not a priority. ๐Ÿ™‚ remember, you can view the new events calendar by going to https://my.vatsim.net/events
  6. I know they are very much aware of it. I personally believe that we fall short here as a market minority. Also, "fixing" IFR and the navigational issues is a much larger task than fixing a commonly requested minuscule feature. I know Navigraph is aware and talking with Asobo, and I am sure they'll come up with a solution to this, but unfortunately, things take time.. I would very much recommend the A320 mod though, there's finally airway implementation coming very very soon and plenty of bug fixes and new features coming every release. VATSIM is a spotlight partner, one of the support
  7. Welcome to the network, Christian! I've talked to countless people having the same concern you currently have. While it's understandable in a network with people across all age groups, you have nothing to worry about. People sometimes like to make jokes about the "squeakers" on the network, being unprofessional, 'noobs' and what not. The reality is that it's the "squeakers" who are one of the more professional and knowledgeable groups on our network. The new generation's ability to suck in information from the internet gives you a huge advantage over the older generations who struggl
  8. I don't usually wander into the AVSIM forums, but I read through your posts. You have many valid points, but it's easy to judge the simulator based on what you see at the current stage. I agree, the simulator at its current level lacks a great deal you would expect to have when flying on VATSIM. However we who fall under the "hardcore simulation enthusiast" have always relied on third party development to get up to par with our standards. Yes, MSFS have had a rough start, but with time the bugs and flaws will be ironed out, and I have no problem seeing that this very easily might become t
  9. Hi Andreas, While there's not much light shed on it, a lot has happened within ATC training since this post was created and the training hotline existed. Back then (2010) a month was an incredibly long time to wait, and its purpose was to deal with inefficient mentors and instructors, or very inefficient training systems. However, in a decade VATSIM has grown exponentially, and so has VATSIM Scandinavia. As of right now, there are a vast amount of people in queue for training in Norway. With all of the staff and mentors doing this on a voluntary basis, it doesn't really matter how m
  10. You can change your email, but you cannot change your password unfortunately. I am not sure how long it will take to fix, but I will *try* to remember to update you once it's resolved. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, can you just confirm that you are viewing the page in English and not translating it to another language?
  11. Hi, and welcome! You wonโ€™t get full access to your profile before you complete the course. Can you wait 20 more minutes, then see if you still canโ€™t access the course? This is an issue we have currently, we will try to look into it! Sorry for the inconvenience.
  12. You have to do that, otherwise that might interfere with VATSIM's injection, and also create confusion as to what is VATSIM traffic and not. Set Multiplayer to "group", and AI traffic to "off". ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. Short answer; not yet - continue using 122.800. Long answer: Down the line, the plan is to implement local CTAF frequencies. However there is a multitude of problems and issues to resolve before that can happen. Firstly, CTAF frequencies for all airports in the world would need to be documented, structured and implemented in AFV, which is a colossal task. Secondly, those frequencies would need to be shown in the clients in an organized and easy-to-understand way so that everyone, including complete beginners understand which frequency to use. Without that, the whole purpose of
  14. Hmmm, it might be a problem with MSFS SimConnect integration, if I recall correctly this is a known problem. There might be a workaround, but official support is uncertain at the moment..
  15. Hi, Ostap! I have forwarded this to our web developers, and they will take a look at it as soon as they have time. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sorry for the inconvenience!
  16. These things happen, don't worry! Being new to the network is daunting, and you're BOUND to make mistakes. However you're in luck - because making mistakes does no harm here! We have all been new, and we have all made mistakes (even though some don't like to admit it). You'll find that as you gain more hours and experience, you'll start to make less and less mistakes; but you'll never be "perfect". ๐Ÿ™‚ Only thing I can say is: Welcome!
  17. Looking for an event? Every week, VATSIM Facilities from around the world host some really amazing events for VATSIM Pilots and Air Traffic Controllers to participate in. We want to keep you all up to date with how you can stay informed about our events, and as such we have a home for them on the social media platforms you love. This forum is no longer the main platform for finding events as we have transitioned to a dedicated and more organized platform for our organizers. You will however still continue find events from unofficial partners and groups here! Finding VATS
  18. In this forum you will find information about events and group flights from all around the globe! NOTE: If you are an Events Coordinator or marketing representative from a VATSIM Region, Divison or subdivision, you should only post events through the myVATSIM platform. If you haven't yet got the permissions to do so, contact your vACC/FIR Director. For our official and unofficial partners, you are more than welcome to post here! When doing so, please conform to the event posting requirements. The marketing team will only promote events from our official partners and facilities,
  19. Hey, make sure you're capitalizing correctly! Passwords to the voice servers are now case-sensitive. ๐Ÿ™‚
  20. Hello Alessio! I'm sorry you're experiencing this. I have notified our network tech team, and they will be investigating it as soon as possible. Hopefully it will be fixed shortly! Welcome to VATSIM!
