Anders,

For the project I am working on, I am using PROJ4 (which has bindings for a variety of languages) which does my map projection and geodesic calculations. The great thing about this is that it not only projects the map as a conic (or anything else) but it also deals with the antimeridian (180W/180E) problem. Something you might want to check out when you get to that point.

Eoin,

What plugins are you using to create the button bars and flight strip bay? I am an avid EuroScope user and I am always looking for ways to "pimp it out."

Any chance you could share your setup (files) ? Looks pretty nice!

Ah there you go! Thought it was Euroscope. Would appreciate that link when it becomes available - ES isn't optimal for this kind of procedural control.

#497635 It is only made for the North Atlantic as far as I know - but it isn't finished yet. But you can look up the description on the VATSIM-UK forums.

#497653 Morten is correct, it is only for Shanwick/Gander for now.

I've also begun working on a third version of it. Especially the map will be significantly updated:

I was lucky enough to have an image of the real system (though a bit old) posted in the VATSIM UK forums to give me an idea of its looks :)

Anyway, the link to the system is http://oca.vnas.net
But like Morten said, it's only for Gander/Shanwick controllers, so if you aren't on any of the two rosters available or have any online time on either of the sectors, there is absolutely no point in even trying to register - you will be rejected, as I don't want every one to have access ;)
(Not meant for you Sebastian, as I know you are rated for the position - just trying to save me for some work :p)
