Coming soon: vatSysServer

Soon a major change will come to the way vatSys works. Working in parallel to Ross’s CRC project, is a server project for vatSys. 

This server will see all flight data, radar, alert and coordination processing move from the client running on the users computer to a centralised server where all data is synchronised and distributed. Users will no longer be connecting directly to FSD.

Divisions will be able to create and edit profiles that run on the server to define local data. These “partitions” - effectively processing islands for each division, will be a very realistic emulation of Eurocat / TopSky architecture. Peer to peer, visibility points and even callsigns will be a thing of the past. 

The current client will remain in open beta until eventually cutting over to server. I encourage those developing profiles to continue, as they will be useable with just a few changes on vatSysServer. 

More soon.

Let's hope someone from Europe will chime in with a new client 😄
Jake, do you see any possibility in developing other/newer variants of TopSky? ie. the ones used in Europe (COOPANS, FINEST, etc..)

Yes, eventually.
Once the server is up an running the client is effectively just a GUI which makes emulating different HMI’s much easier. There are a one or two things that are missing from server still that the modern topsky has, but yes down the line
