  1. Are there any news/updates regarding FIR sub-sectorisation? (just curious 😁)
  2. If you want to know for sure which language(s) is/are used IRL... have a look at the respective AIP. Specifically referring to France it says: and
  3. Dunno who must do the "first step" regarding full implementation of the ICAO flight plan format (specifically metric values) then, VATSIM or the pilot client developers.
  4. To my knowledge both vPilot and xPilot don't have implemented the ICAO flight plan format, yet. An (interim) "workaround" is to pre-file a flight plan via https://my.vatsim.net/.
  5. I don't have ServInfo on my PC, but if it retrieves its weather information from the NOAA then there might be the glitch. There have been some recent problems with the NOAA servers.
  6. MSFS2020, from my knowledge (might be incomplete, please correct if necessary), isn't able to handle the spacing, either (still "old" FSX based SimConnect). XPlane 11, however, can do. That's a "crucial" point when it comes to 8.33 kHz spacing on the network. Wondering how they manage that on the "other" network...
  7. Hi, not of that importance, however wondering where to find the minutes for the BoG meeting on January 16, 2021 (Q4 2020) ? Nothing in here, yet.
  8. SSC is the IATA code for the Concorde. You need the ICAO type code which would be CONC.
  9. The fact nobody else was reporting an issue maybe simply means they retrieved the ATIS via text? However, it's nothing we (as users) can do much about right now I'm afraid.
  10. This is most probably a VATSIM-side issue as it affects all types of simulators & pilot clients.
  11. @Mike KaminskiYour above linked list doesn't seem to be up-to-date to me. It misses registration marks that were introduced in the last years (like Jersey/ZJ, Guernsey/2 or Isle of Man/M), and also "simplifies" the way how they're allocated in the different countries. I suggest this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_aircraft_registration_prefixes
  12. Hectopascal (hPa) is the standard altimeter setting for Europe, exempt very few U.S. military installations (like Ramstein/ETAR or Spangdahlem/ETAD) which report air pressure in InHg.
  13. Hi, whenever submitting a message via the text console (in X-Plane) it won't appear on the notification panel. It does appear in the external main app, and also all other types of messages work normally (ATC, broadcast etc). Using version 1.3.38.
  14. The intent of this thread is about evaluating possible ways to encourage members to use voice, or at least receive voice, whenever possible while connected to the network. It's not about excluding anyone.
  15. Simply enter the ICAO code of the FIR you're looking for in the search field. This will change the FIR/ARTCC tab. Principally the same procedure how to change the airport tab.
  16. Making /r (receive voice) a "standard" would be a good compromise IMO as it obviously serves both sides (pilots and ATC), and this possibly could also encourage pilots to switch to /v (voice only). However, I do think to completely "abandon" /t (text only) is no option either.
  17. Very nice... thanks for sharing the colour schemes! 😀 I manually copied the colour & font values to my VATSpyConfig.xml.
  18. Hi, I noticed on several occasions Vatspy does (sometimes) display a wrong departure airport on startup (i. e. a departure airport that is not specified in a flight plan). This "issue" normally resolves itself after another data reload, but still strange somehow... See the two screenshots below: LILK (Cascina Costa) was shown as departure airport, although there was no traffic and the departing traffic at LIMC (Milan-Malpensa) had filed a correct flight plan (checked on Vatspy, too). After the data reload it's back to normal. I've seen similar at EIDW (nearby EIAH wa
  19. Hi Andreas, this sounds like a good compromise to me. Thanks for pointing out! Nevertheless I hope filing "true" Y/Z flight plans will be possible some time in the future.
  20. Hi all, what's the (current) "standard procedure" to file Y and/or Z flight plans? Right now, it's not possible to file such flight plans directly neither from within the pilot client (in my case xPilot) nor within myVatsim (flight plan prefile). Of course I can e. g. file an IFR flight plan and write as first part of the route "VFR", however I consider this a not really ideal "workaround". Any thoughts?
  21. 👀 https://docs.xpilot-project.org/#/user-guide?id=text-message-console
  22. Just tried with beta 8, and no problems here: If there's no submitted flight plan this option is greyed out (logical since the program doesn't know the departure or arrival airport).
  23. Hi @Ross Carlson, I noticed in the beta 4 it's no longer possible to change the map fonts for staffed & unstaffed ATC. You can open the font selection window, but after clicking on "apply" nothing happens.
