  1. Great initiative guys, I will try to make it. ❀️ Has it been 5 years now?
  2. Ooooooh I understand. I see he has made another topic on this, let's try to find a way!
  3. John, why are you unable to use Euroscope? You are of course open to using whatever client you want, but vACC's are not required to, and the vast majority do not support more than one software. I do not know anyone in Europe who uses VRC anymore, as Euroscope is the most used. Remember that you are expected to have updated files and be able to work off the local procedures set forth by VATUK and VATEUR, without it impacting coordination with other controllers or pilots. πŸ™‚ If you are able to solve that with VRC, you're good to go
  4. [Moved to vPilot support]
  5. Best of luck with your S2 exam, @Steffan Dawe! Keep your head cool and try not to stress, keep it simple and stick to your training. Can't wait to see you on a tower frequency in the future!
  6. Good luck and congratulations everyone!
  7. I will forward this to VP SUP for clarification, but as I see it now, here are the points you should follow: - Having real world NOTAM's is okay as long as they are operationally possible and relevant to the network. Things that cannot or should not be simulated on the network shall not be included. - NOTAM's regarding incidents, accidents or other real world tragedies are not possible to simulate on the network, and shall therefore not be included. This also includes NOTAM's that might cause severe operational impact on the network/inhibiting users from flying.
  8. If my "short" memory serves me right, this topic was about having real world NOTAM's in the ATIS'es, not about A(17) in general. And that implied that there were something in the ATIS policy stating that you cannot have incident related NOTAM's, which I was actually curious to know since I cannot remember reading that. Pulling in other A(17) violations here isn't really relevant... EDIT: I see I read Tobias' comment incorrectly. I thought he meant that there was something in the ATIS policy which included real world incidents, not pulling in A(17) seperately. I stand corrected. πŸ™‚
  9. This is a feature implemented due to the way X-plane handles information and aircraft handling in low-fps environments. You can read more about it by going to the link below. https://www.vatsim.net/news/important-information-x-plane-users
  10. Where is that rule, @Tobias Dammers? I can't remember seeing that in that rule..
  11. Hi Michael, I moved your post as you posted in a developer section. I also updated your title to be a bit more explanatory. πŸ™‚
  12. Yes! If able, file a flight plan and then request to save the controller some workload (a benefit of being online, instead of the controller having to fill it out), but you can just request it too. πŸ™‚
  13. Raiane, please refrain from duplicate posting announcements. πŸ™‚ If you need to change anything, you can edit your post after the fact. I have hidden your previous announcement, thank you!
  14. Congratulations, Liam! Best of luck in your new position. πŸ™‚
  15. This seems to happen when you have used your virtual audio cable output as your AFV output, close AFV and then changing your main output.
  16. It is up to you (or your local division policies) if you want to simulate NOTAM’s which can be simulated on VATSIM. The policy referred to above is in regards to NOTAM’s which cannot be simulated on VATSIM (G/S Unservicable, radio frequencies out of use etc). Closed taxiways, runway usage or other operational NOTAM’s that can be simulated are not in breach of VATSIM policy, as long as you are not interfering or inhibiting people from flying or Enjoying the network. πŸ™‚ Notifying of NOTAM’s that you can and want to simulate is okay. πŸ™‚
  17. Not anymore, per the 27th of August 2019, FAA formatted flight plans are no longer accepted, and flight plans needs to be filed in an IFP (International Flight Plan) format, in order words, ICAO all over the world. πŸ™‚ I am not sure how easy this process would be to implement on the network, it might be hard coded in FSD... I know some people active on the forums which know a lot more about this, they will probably tune in soon. πŸ™‚
  18. Hi Charles! Did you change your password recently? It takes up to 24 hours for the information to be propagated to all the servers. Try waiting 24 hours and see if the problem persists. πŸ™‚
  19. This is what the CoC says about it: The last iteration of the CoC had the word "should", so people thought it was optional. But here you see that if another pilot may benefit, UNICOM usage is mandatory. πŸ™‚ A good practice is to just do it all the time to get into the habit. It's like using the blinkers on your car; other cars don't always benefit from you doing it, but it's good to do it all the time so you remember to do so when you come across a situation where other cars benefit πŸ™‚
  20. To clarify, announcements on designated UNICOM frequency (122.800 or other where applicable) is only mandatory where it may benefit another member. If you're flying alone with no aircraft in 100nm vicinity, you're not required to do so. But if there is a traffic impact, you are. This is an amendment to an old rule which encouraged pilots to use UNICOM; Now it's mandatory where stated previously. It takes time for everyone to get familiar with that change. πŸ™‚
  21. Petter, I have already tried to help you, but you are not willing to do the things I recommend and that I know works. You cannot request help, be stubborn and refuse to do the things you are recommended to do, and then complain that you aren't getting any help. This community is great and very helpful, but please; don't waste other people's time like that. Thank you.
  22. This looks amazing, not gonna lie..
  23. Tricky question... Usually, if a supervisor is online he will contact you as soon as possible (you can check if one is online by going to e.g. vattastic.com and navigate to the ATC tab, and look for people with a SUP rating under 'observers'). Although we aim to be online 100%, that isn't realistic for a voulentary network. If there is a serious offense made, gather all the evidence you can, including callsign, timestamps, chatlogs etc. and email it to [email protected] In this particular case though, I would not have disconnected as he is not allowed to, but I would gather
