  1. Hello, Got a question about the "Route Description" section on page 230 and page 231 of the Euroscope User's Manual v3.2.1.20. I am running several Sim sessions with my students. I have found that the ability to pre-define a route has been immensely helpful in managing all the aircraft from the instructor side. Especially with long and complicated SIDs/STARs and even some RNAV approaches. However, I am noticed an issue that I need some clarification on, in regards to the routing description section: I have defined an entire star from the entry fix (transition) to the last fix be
  2. The Winnipeg Flight Information Region (CZWG FIR) is hiring! We are seeking leaders in the aviation community who are team-orientated, well organized, and p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ionate about Air Traffic Control, VATCAN, and VATSIM! We are accepting applications for the following positions: Saskatoon Facilities Group Lead Moose Jaw Facilities Group Lead Thunder Bay Facilities Group Lead Facilities Lead positions are granted to controllers who possess a rating of C1 or higher, who are specifically familiar with the operation of facilities within their group. Each Facility Lead
  3. I'm [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming that Euroscope retrieves its metar/weather information from VATSIM, who retrieves its weather from a number of weather sources (most notably, the NOAA). Is there a way to change where Euroscope gets its weather from? For example, would someone be able to retrieve their metar and weather directly from a weather source, such as the NOAA? It would eliminate the middle man.
  4. Yes, I know about just using the Sweatbox servers. And I do use those when I'm only teaching one student at a time but if you have multiple students online at once and/or have multiple pseudo pilots, the sweatbox server just can't handle all the information that needs to be p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ed between everyone, so Gergley created a separate FSD server that comes with your Euroscope install. It's all explained in his wiki page: http://www.euroscope.hu/mediawiki/index.php?title=Starting_a_simulator_session My original question stands: How does a student connect SAFELY to the FS
  5. Quick question: If I'm running a Simulator Session utilizing the Euroscope FSD server on my computer, how does an external Euroscope client (i.e. student), connect safely to my local Euroscope FSD server to be able to see all the simulated planes and everything? Thank you!
  6. Thank you. Yes, I saw and read through that post earlier. Sounds great. Would someone have time to walk me through how to get that set up on wordpress? I was having a little trouble with that. I'm not very good with this kind of thing, coding, etc.
  7. To bring to life an old post: Has anyone been able to use the VATSIM SSO on a wordpress site? I'm trying to get it working but I am just terrible at this kind of coding...
  8. A word about equipment codes to Canadian registered aircraft pilots and Canadian Air Traffic Controllers, Equipment codes are just one of the MANY VITAL PIECES of information in your flight plan that are used and consulted by Air Traffic Controllers to determine the appropriate level of service that controllers are able to provide you, based on your equipment type. For example, if you file the equipment code "/S", that tells the controller that you would be unable to fly an RNAV (GNSS) approach plate into an aerodrome and therefore, they would not be able to authorize you for that appr
  9. Congratulations, J-F! I look forward to working with you.
  10. Would the difference in port numbers make a difference? I see Euroscope port TCP #6810 while the VPilot port is #6909. I'm not a networker so I'm not sure what impact this has on the connection but thought I'd share my discovery.
  11. Well this is very strange, indeed. Can't seem to get this working. I can connect to the network using VPilot if I "Connect as Observer" in the connection pop-up menu; but that of course means I would have two connections to the VATSIM network at the same time(Eursoscope and VPilot), which is a no-no.
  12. Thanks for all the info. Andrew. How are you connecting your sim (P3D) to the network? Are you going into the multiplayer section or just setting up a free flight? I must be doing something wrong because I still don't see aircraft in my sim.
  13. Hello, Ross Carlson has released his Vpilot 2.0 BETA which boasts a tower view option (command - .towerview). Does anyone know if this would be possible to work with Euroscope? More specifically, would this work to connect P3D v3 multiplayer tower view to Euroscope through VPilot .towerview command? Thanks!
  14. To revive an old post... Has there been any further development on this, Gergely Csernák? I'm not so much concerned with the circles but rather with the curvature of the earth. Believe it or not, years later, I'm actually working on the same sector file that Mr. Rob Killins worked on back in the day. Since we are dealing with a sector north of the 49th parallel, lines can get skewed very quickly, especially over large distance. For example, I'm trying to draw a specific line that stretches over 1200 nm in the north. Because of the curve of the earth, the line should actually a
