  1. This was certainly not picking on you, we have just recently resectorized/changed sector names and station IDs due to real world changes, after your update release. As far as I understood Jonas is working to get stuff on GitHub set up for actual new release and also having the client pull sectorization data right from GitHub - so we can update directly on GitHub and get updates "live".
  2. I have observed the same problem with the same pilot (well, callsign) as well.
  3. EDMM is e.g. broadly broken/outdated, even in the update Quotescoop data set. 🙂
  4. While Qutescoop is also the tool I use, it's still unable (like all the other tools I'm aware of) to remotely accurately display the complex sectorization structures we sometimes have in some vACCs. VATSIM lacks a central official sectorization database as "single source of truth" together with the required ruleset about which station covers which sector (in dependence of other stations (not) online) for all the tools out there to use, and a tool that's able to display the sitation in 3D, not just 2D. At least able to "think" 3D and state the right controller derrived from the active sect
  5. Hi, when a forum user subscribes to thread updates by email, that notification email is sent as MIME content-type "multipart/alternative" with a plaintext and a HTML version. The HTML version is "OK" (if you think HTML for email bodies is OK...), but the plaintext version that contains only a link to the new post in the thread has a broken link: The problem is that the parameter separator "&" is being HTML-encoded as "&" which is just plain wrong for an URL. Removing the bogus "amp;" makes the link work correctly. I guess you cannot directly do something about i
  6. The problem is not moving to ICAO format (quite the opposite - FINALLY), but doing so grossly uncoordinated without any public announcement with a reasonable pre-warning time. That gave a lot (most, almost all?) of developers zero chance to prepare their software for that change. And we now have to live with the fallout: etc. That was unnecessary. It's not that it was all too urgent now to rush this out in hush-hush mode... or am I missing something? "The real system"? Which one? The world is more than "the USA", even if VATSIM continues to ignore that little d
  7. BTW, I've found a page describing the underlying functionality, and how to prevent auto-repair for the demo configs... by separating them out into another "Feature" definition. Hope that helps: https://www.advancedinstaller.com/user-guide/qa-self-healing.html
  8. As a new EuroScope user, I wanted to remove all the demo config cruft in %home%\Documents\EuroScope to have a clean slate, and stumbled over the same behaviour. The mistake seems that those demo configs are declared being part of the "software installation" when Gergely creates the MSI package, so considered "vital" by the windows MSI installer self-repair functionality. The EuroScope start menu link is not directly pointing to the .EXE file but to a virtual application registration (that's via registry as far as I found out - not a windows admin/dev), and that makes clicking the start me
  9. This has changed, it's "super": http://www.faa.gov/airports_airtraffic/air_traffic/publications/at_notices/media/N7110.464.pdf EDIT: sorry to resurrect this thread, but "for the archives"... Best regards, Daniel
  10. If you are cleared onto the STAR (either by filing it or by being [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned by ATC enroute) you may not fly farther than this point, unless comms failure happens. It's the limit of your clearance. Best regards, Daniel
  11. There are slight differences in definition, my usage of QNE was more colloquial indeed: I was following this "common usage". Best regards, Daniel
  12. Actually, it's QNH 1014 which starts the FL60 regime, not 1013. Bites me everytime. Thinking is prolly: "yeah, at 1013 QNH=QNE, but if QNH changes to 1012, all my aircraft on 5000ft and FL60 had 1000ft separation, now suddenly don't anymore". I guess the 1 hPa is kind of a "buffer". But in general, Martin's perfectly right. Altitude = "x feet on local QNH", flight level = "x feet on 1013/29.92". If the controller sends you to an altitude, dial in the QNH/altimeter he gives you. If he sends you to a flight level, use QNE (standard 1013hPa/29.92"). Best regards, Daniel
  13. Sorry Antonio and thanks for getting back to me. Was burried in other stuff to handle and will write the email when I'm finished controlling EDMM_N_CTR. Again thanks for your help! Best regards, Daniel
  14. Thank you Antonio! Will send you an email within the next few hours with the details. Best regards, Daniel
  15. Hi, can anyone refer me the names and email addresses of the persons to contact at Peru FIR (SPIM) and La Paz FIR (SLLF) to kindly request ATC coverage in SPIM/SLLF for a World Tour fly-out/enroute? On our inbound leg to SPIM I've mailed (for SPIM) Luís García (Events & PR) Roberto J. Duboc (FIR-Chief) without any reply. Are they still in charge? As the VATSAM homepage is down, I have no contacts for SLLF. Can anyone help out? Best regards, Daniel (VACC-SAG World Tour 2006 ATC coordinator)
  16. Hi, can anyone refer me the names and email addresses of the persons to contact at VATBRZ to kindly request ATC coverage in SBCW/SBBS for a World Tour fly-in to SBGL? I've looked at www.vatsim.com.br which is completely in a language I don't understand, and the only thing looking like a staff page listing was "Equipe", a link which doesn't work. Thanks! Best regards, Daniel (VACC-SAG World Tour 2006 ATC coordinator)
  17. Hi Pablo, thanks for getting back to me. Things are resolved, I've contacted you guys in your forum. Please consider publishing a generic role email address like [email protected] or something like that to make you contactable via email. Subscribing to (slight exaggaration) half a thousand fora of specific VACCs is a bit... you know. Best regards, Daniel
  18. Dear collegues, I'm looking for email addresses of the following VATMEX staff members, to mail them details about a group flight departing MMMX end of next week: Alejandro Luna (Events) Erick Salgado (Events-[Mod - Happy Thoughts]i) and perhaps also: Diego Acevedo (FIR-Chief MMEX) Carlos H. Munoa (FIR-Chief MMID) Unfortunately the website http://www.vatmex.org/ gives no way to contact them... not even any role-based email addresses like [email protected] or so. As a suggestion it also would be good to have at least some essential information in English too. Can anyone help out? Than
  19. Well, the problem might be that you're considered a persona non grata by many folks. And no mentor wants to work with you anymore because of your regularily shown attitude, which is also the reason why you were banned from the SAG forum (after a longer list of other sanctions applied, e.g. revoking your Mentor status). You remember? So what you are talking about is not a generic problem of the VACC-SAG or it's management, it's your very own personal problem that you are socially incompatible with many folks - and this is a problem YOU have to fix, not anybody else. Nobody here is paid to d
  20. Which VACC? According to the VATSIM member database, you still belong to VACC-SAG. You hold a STU+ rating which is exactly what you should have. You haven't done your APP Checkout, so there is no basis for any rating upgrade. Stop spreading FUD. Regards, Daniel
  21. Actually I'm really missing the ability to rotate the data tag via keyboard. As someone who is lightning-fast with they keyboard, it takes me virtually lightyears to grab the mouse for something like that. As APP I rotate the tags to 8 or 2 position depending on which runway I planned (and told the pilot) the aircraft. That takes me about 0.3 seconds to do while updating the templevel, but will take me 2-3 seconds doing it with the mouse. That's a problem when working very busy APP. Looks like I will be using ASRC when working busy APP (events) until this is in VRC... :-Z Best regards
  22. Since our only NavData source (navdata.at) is still at AIRAC cycle 0513, it doesn't make much sense to bring up new procedures into VATSIM-effect... especially if the changes include modifications in where fixes and waypoints are (I don't know wether that's the case here for Southampton and Bournemouth STARs). Best regards, Daniel
  23. Am I the only one who absolutely hates this "press release" style (not specifically here, but here even more so)? Sorry Neil, but this is no business here were "quoting VIPs" in marketing/PR "press release style" is the right way to bring a simple message across. Explaining what VATUSA is in the VATUSA Forum is also a bit... erm... We're not playing BS bingo, do we? Best regards, Daniel PS: my apologies if this style was meant as humor EDIT: fixed typo
  24. Very nice... but how could pilots have known that in advance so to plan a trip? SCNR... a little plug for a centralized booking system.
