Additional feature requests for vPilot v2.0

This one is not precisely a feature request but I put it here:

Can you add the following two ICAO codes to the list of known airlines in ModelMatchingData.xml -

EPA (Donghai Airlines)

CCD (Dalian Airlines)

Thanks!

 

You can edit the XML as well. I've done it many times already. Use Notepad++ which is a free download.

It is not a good idea to edit the file, since it will be overwritten by vPilot when I update the data, and your changes will be lost.

 

Clarke, what changes have you made?

Clarke, did you see my previous reply, warning against editing that file? Your changes will get overwritten the next time I update the file.

 

B77F is already in the similar aircraft types list, so you don't need to add that one anywhere. (If it didn't end up matching a triple 7 model that you have installed, let me know, since that may indicate a bug.)

 

I'll add MD1F to the similar types list for the next update.

So, may be a bit late to the game, but I'll give it a shot anyway: Would it be possible to configure output per radio? So, for instance stating that COM1 goes to this sound card and COM2 goes to another? Obviously, it would be possible to set both to the same output/input, but for home pit builders, this would be a real killer feature I am [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming the change would be minor as you already know in the incoming data stream which of the radios is receiving the stream.

 

Thanks,

For such a feature to be complete, vPilot would also need to have two different PTT buttons configured and be able to *record* from the two different devices simultaneously. I'm not sure the VATSIM voice code supports that, but I'll check into it.

 

And that then raises the question of whether or not it is acceptable policy-wise to have two different users transmitting over a single user's connection.

 

Have you considered using observer mode for this?

CTAF Voice functionality in VPilot (As FSInn/FSCopilot do) please. AS this enables us Aussie pilots to be able to use a much more stable program and still use CTAF in uncontrolled airspace.

 

This has been requested many times, and my answer has always been the same. I will implement voice CTAF/UNICOM in vPilot once there is a method that is officially endorsed by VATSIM. A feature like that needs to be standardized on the network, not just brought about on the whim of a single developer. That way all users can benefit, rather than just the users of a single client.

 

To that end, I have recently drafted a proposal for an official voice CTAF structure and submitted it to the BoG. It was discussed in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=70437

Sorry if this already had been asked before but why v2 does not allow callsign with number prefix and dashes?

for example:

4X-CHM

 

I have updated the code to allow a number prefix. This will be available in the next 2.0 beta release, coming soon.

Ross, would it be possible to add the ability to connect to a user-defined voice room? Much like SquawkBox is able to? I know there's a lot of people out there on P3D who would appreciate this functionality.

 

No, I'm not asking for voice unicom..

Would be great if the main screen could be re-sized.

 

I tend to have vPilot on my lower EICAS which is too small to show the whole width of the vPilot form, even at max screen resolution, so I always have one side or another of the form hanging off-screen*. It would be useful if the form could be re-sizable and even better if the the ATC could be undocked?

 

Cheers for all your hard work!

 

Regards

 

Ian

 

* My Lower EICAS is a flat screen monitor that sits in a pedestal, so quite a bit of the desktop is obscured.

Hi Morten,

 

I'm running the monitor at its highest resolution but have to choose between seeing one end of the vPilot form (with the ATC list) or the other (with the radio information). It does resize but only to a certain extent so I still lose some of it.

 

Perhaps the radio info could be put above the ATC window so that the form could be resized further? I much prefer its single screen approach over FSInn's multi screens, but the lower EICAS is only so big.

 

Regards

 

Ian
