  1. No, he did not! Thanks, that's a far easier solution than I was expecting. We were both under the impression that connecting in observer mode was supposed to stop the aircraft appearing to anyone regardless of callsign, so we just assumed this wasn't working properly either because of a limitation in MSFS or as a result of using YourControl. Thanks again, Filbert
  2. Hi all, I did a shared cockpit flight on Vatsim the other day, using YourControl. It worked incredibly well, except for the fact that vPilot showed two aircraft on connecting, even though one of us was connected as an observer. So basically, my instrument panel was obscured by his aircraft, which was inside mine. The only way of getting around this was to change "Maximum aircraft to display" to 0, which of course meant seeing no other traffic. For those of you unfamiliar with YourControl, it requires each of you to spawn in on the same stand with the same aircraft and leave multiplayer of
  3. Well this is what I'm trying to work out. I do find it stressful being 'unable', but the question is whether it upsets the controllers and generally spoils the experience for everyone or whether it's just seen as par for the course. I suspect it varies from one controller to another. Yesterday, on approach to Frankfurt, the MSFS navdata was missing the transition I was cleared for. I requested a different one 'due to incomplete Navdata' and, after a bit of discussion between the centre controller & the approach controller, I was re-cleared for the one I requested. Neither seemed too p
  4. When your refer to the S bend as a base leg, it sounds much more manageable somehow! I suppose it doesn't matter if I'm not pinpoint accurate on the virtual waypoints as long as I adhere to the altitude restrictions, follow the shape and end up pointing at the runway...?
  5. That's really good to know. This is true. I think I would have done that with most procedures, but I decided the S curves between LAM and the ILS were beyond me without some kind of lateral guidance!. Very helpful replies, both of you. Thanks for your time. All the best, Filbert
  6. Mr. Casey is probably right. But at the same time, the A320 NEO with the A32NX mod is so close to being really good that I can't help but fly it! 😉 If the navdata is complete, it's perfectly possible to do a full flight in it from cold & dark to shutdown with everything working flawlessly. The 78X & 748 are a different matter though. That's good advice and I think that would work with the majority of approaches. The reason I didn't do that on this occasion was that I just thought the S-turns between Lambourne and the ILS would be beyond both the capability of the FMC and my own
  7. Hi all, I've been simming for about 20 years but have only recently taken the plunge and joined Vatsim. I'm finding it hugely enjoyable but also a tad stressful, because I'm so used to the predictability of offline ATC add-ons that the workload when flying online is taking some getting used to! I've moved over wholesale from P3D to MSFS recently, and consequently from the FSLabs A320 to the A32NX. I've tried to go back because I miss the FSLabs buses a lot, but P3D looks and performs so much worse that I just can't enjoy it anymore. Anyway, I was on a flight the other day from EKCH-E
  8. Hmm. I've just noticed this forum has been inactive since May. I'll try posting this query elsewhere!
