  1. The airport Atis won’t tell you who to contact but the controller personal atis could say what their area of responsibility is. Also navigraph frequencies are based on the real world frequencies which currently are not fully supported due to channel spacing in the sims. Best thing is to wait for a contact me if you are unsure who to contact when in the air. On ground You could always connect to one and ask and he will politely suggest the other frequency or keep you if you are on the correct frequency.
  2. Velocity is just faster position updates in x radius around you as I read about it. It has nothing to do with landing rates and to add different landing rate monitoring programs will give different results.
  3. Pilot rating is separate from joining a VA. I would suggest you read the associated documents for the pilot ratings and that only authorized training organizations can issue a rating just like you train for ATC.
  4. Vatsim works fine just that the old data feed has been deprecated and any program or website using that has to be updated to work again. Now some programs might become abandon ware and you will likely not see an update for those.
  5. You don’t need to put anything if your remarks cause it is already present in the icao aircraft string when it comes to equipment codes. Controllers will put in something like cpdlc: LOVV for example or logon LOVV. Best thing as a pilot is just to say cpdlc capable and send a request to the logon code. With any luck you get accepted and instructions will come through cpdlc.
  6. In Europe it is quite common. Outside of Europe not really. The only plugins providing hoppie interaction are for euroscope which significantly limits in client based interfaces. If it is active they should report in their controller atis. However since other networks also make use of hoppie it can be a bit more difficult to know if you only look at the hoppie acars log or in an addon.
  7. I think volanta and simtoolkitpro for that matter rely just like maps on the feed. So if they were created with the old feed they would have to be updated.
  8. the upcoming position update frequency is already something that could hit users negativly during big events with a lot of AI. now add ground vehicles. it would be stutterfest for all. i dont really like that.
  9. would be nice to have CPT highlighted in a different color. same perhaps for VA events held on vatsim.
  10. As a sidenote. I feel the majority of the changes happened after AFV was introduced. Now some of these changes are the result of increased competition. We can globablly classify these as being AFV and the upcomming position frequency updates. Some changes are necessary due to technology being to old and patched together, we can see the FSD as being in here. The main goal would be to have a network with very little hiccups which is also easy to scale and modern. Now some changes happened due to a new image vatsim wanted to create. I would classify the new website layout, forum and tagline
  11. Simconnect for anything but p3d v5 when it comes to fsx related sims is not able to handle the spacing. Msfs not sure, xplane not sure either. We could tune everything in the pilot client and the problem would be solved but that lacks immersion. Cause we do not want to drop support for older sims.
  12. 150 nm is pretty far for approach to contact you. for frankfurt you will likely be with langen radar however there are multiple langen radar sectors. see https://vatsim-germany.org/pilots/aerodrome/EDDF .
  13. Vpilot will inject the aircraft around you in the sim. this is irrespective of which sim those pilots are using. vatsim does not use the microsoft servers but has their own servers which handle the aircraft. if i am connected to a server in the UK i can see traffic from all other servers as well.
