#517124 Surprise!
AccuMap v1 is out in the wild and available to all Windows users!
Our MacOS version is still in development and will be ready for download before Cross the Pond Eastbound 2017!

Special thanks to all of our developers, contributors, and testers for making this possible!

You can download it from our website here: http://accumap-project.com/
If you have any issues, feel free to send them to us also via the website.

Happy simming!

Please note: There are still some small issues with the app, but it's nothing that makes it unusable. Besides, we have a bug report tool for everything :)

#517129 Looks very nice.

A little bit of feedback, even if I've only spent a few minutes with it.
I'd much prefer it if I could set it to display aircraft callsigns and airport ICAO codes without me clicking on them. It's also hard to tell between an upper control station (Such as Eurocontrol) and a normal one. http://i.imgur.com/lXubOIe.png For some reason, here Croatia and half of Bosnia-Herzegovina appear to be different colours from the rest of the FIRs, despite them not having any other ATC on. Could it be related to the fact that Zagreb covers its Balkan neighbours? I'd also like to be able to see which positions are on at an airport without having to click it.

For me, something with the design of VatSpy, but a better back-end would work perfectly. For now I'm going to stick with VatSpy, but I look forward to seeing the progress that this makes.

Great job!,

Hope this gets a good push by VATSIM so the general community population know about it.


Oh it will.

Great job!

Eoin - would you be able to PM me your email address or alternatively chuck an email my way at g.lindahl (at) vatsim.net?

Thanks!

Well that didn't take very long lol
Two hours after the announced release we have our very first "it's nice but..."
You just have to love it. And we wonder why people are hard pressed to create apps for us.
Well, congratulations to the authors of this project and thank you for taking the time to create something new for VATSIM.
Oh, and I haven't bothered to download it yet so it would be nice if you could make everything that is blue, red, and everything that is red, blue.
And green! Yes, green. We need more green! I can't imagine ever using it unless there is more green! :mrgreen:

Thanks again guys. Really.

#517140 Congratulations to Eoin, Jacob and the AccuMap team!

These guys have brought a new spanner into the works with accurate FIR Boundaries which is something that most products lacked in the market.

I've been following this project for quiet some time now and cannot question the commitment and time they've all put into this project.

A long road ahead for the team but I think we all look forward to seeing what develops.

#517141 Looks great, well done! I agree that showing aircraft callsigns on the map would be a great addition. I would also love to see airports with some indication of which positions are staffed at the airport (ATIS, DEL, GND, TWR.)

Feedback and constructive criticism is what drives development. You cannot create something in a bubble, feedback is important. I commend people that take the time to write concise feedback so that developers can understand what the user is seeing. Its a great start and I hope development continues (I just downloaded and starting to play with it now).

#517166 Feedback is very important for us in the AccuMap team. above all we are still learning ourselves and all of our developers are in school which makes it even harder. Thus our feedback system at http://accumap-project.com/problem is critical for all users in order to make it a better experience. We also thank everyone who has already submitted feedback or who have just downloaded the application.

For some reason, here Croatia and half of Bosnia-Herzegovina appear to be different colours from the rest of the FIRs, despite them not having any other ATC on. Could it be related to the fact that Zagreb covers its Balkan neighbours?

Joseph, the reason for that is that we have setup the sector layout for Zagreb but not for the other FIRs, as we setup the sectors for it's neighbours it would be a lot less confusing.

set it to display aircraft callsigns and airport ICAO codes without me clicking on them [...] see which positions are on at an airport without having to click it

These two points are on our consideration list and may come in the future.

#517168 Back to topic!

I installed AccuMap last night and liked it. I echo what Paul and Ross have written. It would also be nice if you could add VATBOOK-data (if you need help, let me know) and also a flightplan-/route-search with vroute and FlightAware. This would upgrade it quite a bit. It would also be nice if there was an easy way to import friends-lists from other programs. Maybe I did not install the right files, but the routes of all planes are shown as simple great-circle lines and not their flightplan routes. Maybe you can do something about it.

I primarily use Qutescoop, because I get a lot of stuff there: online-status, ATC-bookings, flightplans.

We can all see how much dedication, time and effort has been invested into this program, I applaud you for this! Keep going, you are only at the beginning of a great thing.

#517185 I can't seem to remove the installer file. The first time I removed it from my desktop and refreshed my desktop, it went back with this not-existing icon. I can remove it how many times I want, but it still gets back after every refresh. Even after a PC restart it's still there.

What can I do?

EDIT: I'm logged in as administrator on my PC, but it still says I got no permissions to do anything with this file.

In regards to VATBOOK integration, it is definitely something we are looking into as there seems to be a lot of demand for something like this. The routes of all planes are just great circle mapped at the moment, the reason being that we do not have a current AIRAC data source (Navigraph?) to allow us to map their current flight planned route. Also performance is a key factor, and it would need to be thoroughly tested first. It may be on the horizon, but I can't make any promises at this stage.

Is it just me or does the screen move really slow? It's not smooth at all.


If when you pan the map, there are slight jitters, that is normal (for now), but this is slowly being worked on as updates progress.

That's a weird one and it's to do with your computer settings/permissions. I'm afraid I don't know a fix, but you can try re-booting into safe mode and try deleting it from there as suggested here. Other than that, I have no idea (sorry).

Safe mode seems to have fixed it. Thank you for the suggestion.
