Hello All, After registering for Vatsim on 26/11/2013(yes, 6 years 364 days ago at time of writing) I've finally logged my first 10 hours after plucking up the courage to jump in at the deep end, I must say, its not as bad as it appears and generally controllers are great even when you make a mistake. So if you're a newbie thats found this post from one of the major search engines.. Just do it! Jump in!(after reading some tutorials!) Anyway, back on topic... I've noticed A LOT of the models of other aircraft display as the default, not the easy ones such as EZY/RYR etc i think i have these models from the AI Companion, though. I've read numerous sources online however I've not found a definitive answer on what the best model matching pack is.. The options I've found is the IVAO MTL and UT2... which, in your opinion is the best for model matching? - I'd not touch WOAI with a barge pole after the last time i had to completely uninstall FSX some years ago to get rid of 2 dodgy packages that corrupted.. something... so what would be the best alternative? the MTL looks amazing, but all things that do... come at a cost, i can't believe it'd be all that, for free. Thanks in advance for your replies, Adam McDowall
Starting a flight from KPHL to KEWR last night, I realized that my KPHL scenery does not agree with the runway and taxiway configuration used by Vatsim ground control. In particular, the real world runway 27L is longer than the runway in FSX. So, ground control asked me to use taxiways which are not in the FSX scenery for KPHL. I have a Navigraph subscription and the airport diagram does show these taxiways. Obviously I should update the KPHL scenery. But I have not been able to find scenery for KPHL with more recent taxiway and runway configurations. (Payware or freeware) (I am using FSX with SP1 and SP2 and Navigraph.) Any thoughts about a source for the missing scenery would be appreciated. (I tried Avsim and flightsim.com)
Hello all, I am new to VATSIM and have downloaded vPILOT for FSX Steam Edition, i am able to connect to the network and connect to the ATC and hear the ATC correspondence, however I am not able to see other online traffic, they all appear as default A321s in blank livery. I am also seeing the default FSX aircraft in the default liveries (Orbit, pacifica etc). Is there a way that i can disable this so i can see the other VATSIM users correctly? Thank you
