VATSpy Update v1 DOWNLOAD [Beta]


Recommended Posts

Bring that to VATUK (you're much more formal lol) and see what they think.

 

I do need from somebody in VATCAN the data for the Sept Iles sector of CZHZ/YQX Center if possible.

 

Today, updated the Vienna FIR to also display Slovenia's coverage.

I haven't looked at the data file, but wouldn't a quick "Hack" sort of way of doing it be putting "LON_N" as the prefix in the data file mean that it always comes true when "LON_N_CTR" comes online?

 

Just a thought.

 

Cheers!

I'm not a controller in Moncton but I do have the CZQM/CZQX sectorfile if you are looking for coordinates, I can upload it if u like.

 

Also, is it possible for when CYXU_APP signs on that the CYHM_APP bubble pops up as well. Because CYXU_APP controls CYHM when he is not online and vice versa. keep geting pilots who dont know and depart without clearance. Just wondering if it is possible, no luck so far trying to figure it out. Thanks

AFAIK I know, it isn't, an approach sector can only light up one "ring". The easiest is probably to do what we do in Sweden, write in the controller info what the sector covers, for example

 

Stockholm Control

Covering ESSA,ESSB,ESOW,ESCM,ESSU (Afis)

 

or

Sweden control

Providing terminal service for ESMS and ESMK up to FL285.

 

 

It's not failsafe but it's something anyway.

I've posted it on the UK board but not much comment so far, also David is in NY (where Irene is approaching) so this development will most likely wait a while for that to clear up (it's after all David doing all the work here, I'm just being annoying and commenting on errors ).

Oh, no worries Johan, understood, I am aware of Davids mention earlier of IRENE.

We only ever get the tail end (to coin a phrase) in the UK and have no conception generally speaking, in reality of weather of such nature.

Same here in Sweden, but (like the UK) we think we do get horrible weather because every year the Swedish trains plunge into chaos: "Oh my, it's snowing, this year again ?!". It's been like that for the last 3 years now I belive. Just like the UK completely shut down when there suddenly was snow, from what I've heard at Heathrow the BAA said a few months earlier that they didn't need around 200 people and laid them off. The only problem was that these people were the ones who were supposed to clear snow when requiered, and we all know how it went when the snow came .

 

But then again, in London there rarely is snow and when it falls it's not that much, but Sweden (at least the north parts) have snow every single year, and still they stand there every year going "no we weren't expecting this extreme weather" .

David,

 

Just out of curiousity, I use VATSPY solely as a pilot trying to keep tabs of other pilots and which ATC are online. I have downloaded Updatev1 and v1.1 as well as the two files in Aaron's post concerning Canada.

 

What should I install? I'm [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming v1 and v1.1 in that order, but the Canadian downloads also? There were two downloads there, one just was titled VATSPY and the other FIR Boundaries or some such name.

 

I guess what I'm asking is this stuff for controllers more so than pilots or both equally? What will I see different if I install and will the installs change the preferences I already have set; i.e., color of land, caostal borders, water, etc?

 

I'm not very computer savvy and it took me a long time to get VATSPY to look the way I wanted it to. I'd hate to have these updates "overwrite" everything I've done and have to start from scratch just to see new boundaries.

 

Thanks

Randy,

 

Your color profiles are stored in a different file.

 

VATSpyConfig.xml which not either of the 2 files provided here

 

Cheers!

Thanks Rahul.

 

Yeah, the two versions are completely independent of each other. However, 1.1 includes v1 and is newer, so you obviously should install that. Install instructions are located on the first page.

And quickly, I realized I screwed up a few things.

 

Oh well...

 

VERSION 1.2 IS AVAILABLE!

 

V1.2 is the same as V 1.1 with a few more airports in Canada/US and a fixed boundary for CZUL/CZYZ.

 

Available HERE

 

OR

 

An installer that will automatically update the files is available HERE, courtesy of Jorge Rojas.

There is one thing about the Baltic Control 132.32 - on one hand, it is like UIR as it covers 4 FIRs, but on the other hand the UIR status is somewhat misleading to pilots, saying it covers the FIR above FL245. Really, BALT_CTR is providing service down to the tower/ground when there is no respective ATCos online. So, probably it would be better to define it as a FIR - if I understand correctly, there is the same thing with ENOR and LDZO.

And while we are at it, here goes some more regional airfields:

EVAA|Aizpute|56.697045|21.629099||EVRR|0

EVBA|Griva|55.889732|26.460370||EVRR|0

EVCA|Cesis|57.324444|25.323611||EVRR|0

EVEA|Jelgava|56.672833|23.680634||EVRR|0

EVGA|Lielvarde AFB|56.779444|24.855833||EVRR|0

EVIA|Cirava|56.737992|21.359913||EVRR|0

EVJA|Kuldiga|56.941619|21.990931||0

EVKA|Jekabpils|56.534923|25.888729||EVRR|0

Added for next update. I'm leaving it like an FSS though for time constraints, due to the fact that it's easier that way.
