So, Virtual Tower View isn't coming back?

I read somewhere that the latest version of VRC (1.2.4) does not support Virtual Tower View -- that to use it I have to revert to 1.2.1.

 

However, it is not clear whether this is a permanently dropped feature or whether it will be returning. The option to "Start Multiplayer Session" is still in the menu.

 

Will this feature be coming back or has it been abandoned permanently?

Cheers,

It has been abandoned permanently, for a variety of reasons, the biggest of which is the fact that the multiplayer code was not written by me ... it was provided to me by the author of Squawkbox 3, and it is not in a form that is maintainable by me. Plus, it only worked with FS9.

 

I *may* at some point release a version of vSTARS that allows you to connect FSX as a tower view, using the vPilot code.

do you have any similar plans for vERAM?

 

No, because I was thinking I wanted to make a tower client out of vPilot, but I quickly realized that such a client would need a radar scope since many cabs have a radar console, so I figured the easy thing to do would be to add vPilot's FSX integration to vSTARS. I could do the same thing for vERAM, but I'm not sure how often anyone's going to want to cover center airspace with one or more ERAM screens while also covering local control at an airport visually with FSX.
