  1. This is because vPilot does not scan MSFS for installed models. That's only done for FSX and P3D.
  2. Have you tried running vPilot as an administrator? I'm wondering if some sort of file permission issue is blocking vPilot from detecting the sim.
  3. It will always show MSFS for all users, so that's not an issue. Is it feasible for you to reinstall FSX? Not sure how much work that would be for you. I think you should be able to reinstall it over the top of the existing installation, without the need to completely remove it first. That should save you from having to reinstall add-ons. I'm not 100% sure though, never having done so myself.
  4. vPilot finds your simulator(s) by looking in the registry to find the location where you installed the sim. It then verifies that that location actually exists and contains the FSX.exe file. If it's not finding your installation of FSX, then the appropriate registry entry is missing, or it points to a folder that doesn't exist or doesn't contain FSX.exe. Did you manually move your FSX installation to a different location on your hard drive?
  5. It's pretty likely that there will be a tool to create video maps from sector files, as there is now for vERAM and vSTARS. It's also highly possible that there will be a tool to generate video maps from AIRAC data.
  6. Except when you're doing Elvis impersonations, right?
  7. Nobody can answer this for you. It all depends on what's important to you, because both sims have their strengths and weaknesses.
  8. I think (hope) you meant that it doesn't exclusively cover LGA.
  9. "Commercial Airliner" didn't work?
  10. Then I don't know why it would reject the CRJ as the default model. I suggest you choose some other model and see if it accepts that. Maybe try "Commercial Airliner" ... that's one of the default aircraft that comes with P3D v5, and I think it's in v4 as well.
  11. No need to be so strict ... there is room for humor on the airwaves, and it happens all the time in the real world. Some controllers even welcome it. Some controllers even instigate it. You just need to pick your moments. Obviously don't be wasting air time on a busy frequency. As with everything, there's a right time and a right place.
  12. If you look in your P3D v4 installation folder, in the SimObjects folder, then in the Airplanes folder, do you see a folder called Bombardier_CRJ_700?
  13. I'm not saying you should, I'm asking if you did. What do you have set as the default model in your model matching settings in vPilot?
  14. Did you remove any of the default models that come with P3D?
