  1. Hi Daniel, since there are two fields where one could expect the callsign to be in Simbrief, just let me check you are using the correct one: The one in the yellow circle is the ATC callsign and also the login you have to use for Vatsim. This can be identical to the airline+flight number combination like in my case here but it can differ - you can put there anything you want more or less to for example simulate an "operated by" flight - simbrief usually fills this automatically with airline+flight number. When I look into the statistics I see you did all your flights with regist
  2. @Stefan Loos is it possible that you had a typo in your callsign (either in simbrief or when loggin in) and due to that the fpl wasn't connected to your online session? That's the reason in 99% of the cases I so far came across. Numbers in the wrong order or the classic "DHL instead of DLH". 😉 Since you asked "what info" - screenshot of the pre-filing page and of vatspy would definitely help as a first step to narrow it down. Cheers Michael
  3. Hi Stefan, I think we need a bit more info - I just tried it myself and it worked perfectly fine: Cheers Michael
  4. Hi Daniel, additionally there is no "picking up the flight plan in the client" - the only thing you do there is that you copy whatever there is in the system for your callsign into the fields of the flight plan box in the client so you can quickly make small changes and not have to insert all the details again. From ATC side it cannot be seen at all if you do that or not. There simply is a single flight plan in the system for your callsign and if you login with that callsign we see it correlated to the target we see for you as well as in some lists. So even if you depart VFR we still see
  5. Hi Mats, I think this is the drop-down you are looking for - here you select the aircraft type you are using yourself: Cheers Michael
  6. Hi Daniel, I don't really see an issue with your intial IFR FPL but deciding to depart VFR with later pick-up but it might have been a bit of "what to do with the FPL" which might have led to ATC telling you to re-file VFR. Overall you wouldn't even need a FPL in most cases for VFR but now there is this IFR FPL and you said you wanted a pickup later - so somehow a Z FPL - did you already know when and where to join your original plan? I personally (on the controller side) would have just switched your FPL to VFR and depending on the circumstances even deleted the route as it would ha
  7. Not familiar with Gatwick but I'm rather sure this was some misunderstanding and the controller actually said something different. There are some SIDs with a 5 but all have letters afterwards as they are per-runway - in such a case just ask him/her back about that part. Maybe it was "number 5" or something about an inbound at 5 miles out or the QNH (1015 or 995?) or something totally different like joking with you if you had been disconnected several times before?... Likely can only be clarified but the persons involved or someone controlling EGKK. 🙂
  8. Hi Ori, can you maybe give us a bit more of context? Where was this - approaching an airport? enroute? during clearance? It could be a SID or a STAR you have been cleared on - those usually consist of a waypoint name and a number and potentially a letter - but without context, this is all guesswork. Cheers Michael
  9. Hi Bob, you can observe all over the world - just load a sector file for the area/airport you want and login as an OBS. For the UK (without having first hand done it) it seems you can get it here as there are several controller packs listed: https://community.vatsim.uk/files/downloads/category/15-euroscope-controller-tools/ Cheers Michael
  10. Hi Justin, just set it to "Group" as you don't want to see actual "other traffic" but only vatsim traffic which is injected directly by the pilot client into the sim. The model matching is still lacking as there are not yet the necessary ai models available to for example display B727s or A340s etc. in the different liveries. This should improve over time. Cheers MIchael
  11. Hi Kirk, just set it to "Group" as you don't want to see actual "other traffic" but only vatsim traffic which is injected directly by the pilot client into the sim. See also: Cheers MIchael
  12. Hi Rob, have you cross-checked your password? If I remember correctly the server connection isn't case-sensitive but the voice connection is which can lead to such issues that it looks like you have the correct password but in fact it's incorrect. Give it a try. Cheers Michael
  13. The problem isn't the icao format - the problem is how it's currently implemented. I hope this will soon change - and I hope by now the developers know about it...
  14. Ok, so at least from SimBrief side there is the confirmation now that this change was intentional (https://www.simbrief.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=8020#p8020): No need to inform anybody else it seems...
  15. No, the "problem" is that the Vatsim PreFile page you show is no longer directly linked from the vatsim.net mainpage but a new myVatsim page which uses ICAO style FPL format and put this data into the old field which now is hardly usable until our software is updated. See also this thread which sadly has moved into "what is a correct callsign?" topic (which is also valid but wasn't the intention of the original poster). We still lack ANY announcement from official side why this was obviously rushed out without even developers like @Ross Carlson not being informed about it. Simbrief jumpe
