  1. I understand this, but not sure posting a post like this on the forums is beneficial to any party. Instead, try submitting feedback at the facility (Division/vACC/ARTCC) where this happened, and they'll be able to deal with this in an appropriate way.
  2. Just had a look at mine again, and it looks like forward slashes are the way to go.
  3. Hi Edward, Though I can't answer your second question (I'm guessing you mean that the uninstaller in AppData\Local\xPilot isn't removing all of the files), I believe only the Alpha version (1.3.14 right now) supports X-Plane 11.50 with full functionality. You can download it on the xPilot website, selecting the "Alpha" branch under the download button. Regarding your CSL paths, they look good to me! Those are how I have mine setup and I have no issues with those. If you're using an older version of xPilot with XP11.50 then you won't be able to see any aircraft other than yourself due to a change of the way that aircraft are injected into the simulator in the new X-Plane version, and the way the older versions of xPilot do this is not supported from XP11.50.
  4. Hi Maks, You can find all of your stats in the VATSIM Statistics Centre. Go to your profile, and you'll be able to see a summary of your hours. For a more detailed view, scroll all to the bottom where it will show you when and on what callsign you gained those hours.
  5. Welcome to the network! You need something called "Model Matching" where the pilot client will be able to recognise what airline a certain aircraft is, and then place a livery from your files onto it. I'd recommend FLAi, which can be found here. They have a brilliant installation guide which can be found here. If you want to play about with your model matching rules or get an explanation as to how this work, checkout the vPilot documentation.
  6. VHF signal degradation! See the AFV guide here (section 5.3.2) that explains it, and section 5.3.3 gives you some scenarios and explains them using nice diagrams and graphics.
  7. In the UK AIP (ENR1.6 2.2.2.1.3), the conspicuity codes are defined as such; *7000 – VFR conspicuity code: when operating within United Kingdom airspace in accordance with VFR and have not received a specific instruction from ATS concerning the setting of the transponder. *2000 – IFR conspicuity code: when operating within United Kingdom airspace in accordance with IFR and have not received a specific instruction from ATS concerning the setting of the transponder. The UK differentiates between the conspicuity codes (something which, as far as I am aware, wasn't the case before February this year). The new revision of CAP413 (Radio Telephony Manual; effective 8th June 2020) includes a change to the phraseology too for leaving controlled airspace. Old: "BAW123, squawk 7000" New: "BAW123, squawk conspicuity" I think that with the changes, especially that the UK now differentiates between the two, then it is unfair to say that it shouldn't be used especially if we have the chance to simulate slightly more realism, without any difficulty whatsoever.
  8. Perhaps try disabling the TCAS on xPilot, and see if that helps. Aware that this was an issue with the new TCAS system.
  9. With the new system, if you wish to continue through the ratings, then you are required to hold the previous rating before progressing onto the next. For example, to train for a P2 you are required to have a P1. To train for a P4, you are required to have all of the previous ratings; P1, P2 and P3. ATOs have the freedom to train for whichever ratings they want for, and they will continue to have that freedom. The extra step will be in ensuring that the member they are training already holds the previous ratings, as otherwise the ATO will not be allowed to give out the rating. I have taken a look, however, at our registered ATOs and most of our VA ATOs offer only the P1-P3 ratings (currently the "VFR heavy" ratings), with only 2 offering P4/P5. In regards to your second question, of course they can use their existing material! Some of our ATOs have adapted some of their content to the new ratings, while adding to their syllabi in areas which the older ratings didn't cover. We don't mind whether the ATO adapts the current material they have, or if they wish to re-write their content and syllabi. We understand there are many ways to solve a problem, so as long as the result (in this case the compliance of the new Membership Certification Standards) remains the same, the ATO is free to write the new content as they wish. I hope that cleared some things up.
  10. It would still probably get processed faster than Ryanair 😂
  11. He means noone is paid for this. Everyone does this for free, and the staff give up their time for free to help you.
  12. Changes may take up to 24 hours to propagate to every VATSIM service, unfortunately!
  13. Have you recently reset your password? It can change some time for the change to propagate to AFV. Make sure you also pay attention to capitalisation of your password (if it includes it).
  14. XSB states it on their website that it will not support Vulkan (or any X-Plane experimental features that are in Beta) until XSB v3 is released. See the post here. If you wish to use XSB, you will need to use a non-beta version (i.e. a 11.4 version). Otherwise, you'll have to use X-Pilot for now.
