#508371 Hello! I've just made the move to xplane and have done a few flights on vatsim already. I've tried fiddling around with the settings but I don't seem to be able to receive the "chime" such as the one you get on vpilot when an atc sends a Contact me message when entering their airspace.

Am I missing something or is it just not a feature?

#508389 As Josh pointed out, this is not a built-in feature. However, the utility linked below will make a sound (when turned on) for any private messages you receive along with text messages from ATC or on UNICOM that contain your callsign.

This is just the type of plugin that I've been looking for! No longer do I need to tab in and out every 5 minutes to check I'm not breaking the law 8)

Thanks and happy new years to you all!
