#497734 There is a video on youtube about Shanwick controlling that shows images of the software they use, might be worth a watch.

#499898 Half of Australia covered when on ML-KLG_CTR (Kalgoorlie) extending TRT (Territory) , PIL (Pilbara) and NUL (Nulabore). Finally got the lovely CPDLC working too :D

#500113 Nice setup Cathal, but i think i have something for VATEIR that you lads would love :D :D !!

I've been working on some Euroscope files to replicate the Irish system. I've pretty much overhauled the symbology, tags and lists and tiny bits of the sectorfile (for the coastline and EIDW STARS color) Here's a demo:

Main radar screen:

Ground radar:
Image

Detailed data tag (When you hover your cursor over the tag):
TAG Layout:
Warnings
Callsign | Next sector | Assigned SQK | Aircraft type and wake category,
Current altitude | Vertical speed indicator | Temporary altitude | Ground speed | Destination | Cruise level,
Sector exit altitude (XFL)| Direct to waypoint,
Assigned heading (will show the direct to waypoint if given a direct to) | Assigned speed | Assigned rate| Scratchpad,

Image

Tagged tag (when not hovering over tag):
TAG Layout:
Warnings
Callsign | Aircraft type and wake category,
Current altitude | Vertical speed indicator | Temporary altitude (if not the cruise level) | Ground speed

Image
When the assigned heading, direct to, speed and rate are set:
Image

Untagged tag:
TAG Layout:
Warnings
Callsign,
Current altitude | Vertical speed indicator | Temporary altitude (if not the cruise level)

Image

Now onto colors!:

Assumed (Aircraft you are tracking):
Image

Notified (Aircraft due to enter your sector):
Image

Non-concerned (Aircraft on the radar that will not enter your sector):
Image

Emergency (7700, SCTA, etc.)
Image
Image

Route display:
Image

I had trouble getting handoff colors to work in the sim. When a handoff is initiated the tag should turn blue.


Now for the lists:

I suppose this is all self explanatory, "SCT" displays the controller who is tracking the aircraft and "HOLD" is actually the holding list plugin.
Image

You can control the Holding List Plugin using the command line.
.hl show – to show the holding list
.hl hide – to hide the holding list
.hl add <point name> <callsign> - to add a plane to the list
.hl del <callsign> - to remove the plane from the list
.hl wait <minutes> <callsign> - to add a timer that counts down from <minutes> to 0.

Here are the images i based these settings off of: http://imgur.com/a/i2poC

Any chance you can put this up on VATEIR Cathal? Or should i just put it in the forums?

#500126 Nice job Eoin.

Does these pictures have anything similar ;)

VATSIM Topsky Plugin for Euroscope by Juha Holopainen

I really recommend checking out Topsky plugin by Juha Holopainen for Euroscope. With some tweaks it should be possible to port over to Ireland setup as well :). Ireland seems to use the B setup. Plugin has A and B setups. And for example Finland and Estonia uses A setup, and Sweden and apparently Ireland as well uses B setup. There is very detailed manual for developer as well to port it over. I can provide some further details on PM if you want :)

Best regards,
