    What addons should this newbie get?

    Welcome. There's plenty of freeware / demo options available to choose from to enhance your experience: Scenery: https://www.freewarescenery.com/fsx.html (demos also available on UK2000 or various other sites, it just depends where you wish to fly) Aircraft : AVSIM / flightsim websites or if you prefer older classic ones search for Dave Maltby. (who produced payware quality), Weather: freeware http://www.plane-pics.de/fsxwx/home.htm or http://www.fsrealwx.net/ Vatsim AI: And finally to remove those white planes and see what everyone is actually flying - http://flai.bvartcc.com/ Hope this helps

    Red headset on the voice communications box

    Hiya Gabriel, Ever since the launch of AFV, the use of the old voice servers are not to be used. To fix this, simply disable the XMT, RCV VOI/TXT, write whatever you'd like in the 'server' and 'channel' column (e.g. "novoice"), then click Prim, RXC TXT and XMT TXT. RCV/XMT voice should be left unticked, as we're using the AFV standalone client to enable voice communication 🙂
  6. Every time I load up and try to connect to any position since the AFV launch, I get a RCV VOI red headset and nothing in the XMT VOI I have tried using different servers to connect but I have the same problem every time. Any ideas why?

  8. Hi all! So, pretty much a total newbie here, new to flight simming (well, may as well be) and completed my first VATSIM flight last night (thanks again to London Control, the fear of PTT was real). But in navigating EGBB and even EGNX, it became clear that my default scenery was simply not up to scratch, and the fact that every single plane I see seems to just be a pure white Boeing or Airbus, well I need me some addons to add to the experience. Since I'm new, and wanting to put my money towards a decent joystick, before I plunge into paid addons I want to just look at improving the experience through freeware. Lordy there's a lot of that about. So I ask the sage and wizened of VATSIM UK, what freeware addons should I get to really start getting a feel for all VATSIM can offer me, just to make sure I get completely hooked 😄 For reference, I'm using FSX Steam Edition. Many thanks!! Tanox *Edit* Just realised as well, in terms of the weather, is FSX's "real-world weather" good enough to work well with VATSIM or should I be looking at a weather engine?

    Thanks for the links. They contain very useful information. Peter Many thanks for the pointer, but I don't want to install 2000 liveries and 1.9Gb of files. I just want a couple of helicopters. 🙂 I might see if I can extract it/them from the download. Peter

    thanks Gary, pleased to hear about RDF and fully understand ‘as real as it gets’ approach to not having a euroscope comms room of aircraft on frequency. Jim

    Jim, The RDF plugin should work with new voice very shortly, the dev has my full attention this evening to get it integrated. We wanted to try and get people out of the voice room world into real VHF radio just as everyone asked for, we thought giving you a who you can hear list was against that plan 🙂 RDF plugin all the way? Cheers G

    atc-software UKCP - API Not Authenticating

    UKCP appears to be up and running for a number of users. If you're having trouble then go ahead and delete the key completely (from Core and from your EuroScope folder) and generate a new one at https://www.vatsim.uk/ukcp.
  15. Hello Again! Another event, another screenshot competition - this time held during our upcoming Scottish Sunday event. Since this is the first event held on the new Codec (something which you can't really showcase in a screenshot) we are allowing entries of short videos. If this proves to be popular then we can consider allowing video entries for future events. The rules are similar to before: Each person may get no more than 3 screenshot/video entries per event You may only enter screenshots/videos taken during the specified event You may not enter screenshots/videos taken by someone else Video entries must be an MP4 no longer than 1 minute, with a maximum resolution of 1920x1200px, and a maximum file size of 512MB Please send your entries, or a link to a google drive folder containing your entries, to ben.wright@vatsim.uk - entries will close at midnight on Wednesday the 23rd of October. Good luck...

    I'm having the same error, i was thinking that it might be to do with where the .json is stored?
  17. William Grimsley

    atc-software UKCP - API Not Authenticating

    Yes, already done that. I deleted the key from the ES folder and replaced it with a new key; same error.

    Go to your core dashboard, delete the old key completely, download a new one :)

    pilot-software vPilot and Helicopter Model Matching

    Not sure what you're using for model matching Peter but FLAI ... http://flai.bvartcc.com/ ... is free, brilliant and it also includes at least one helicopter model to match (there may be more but I can't remember). I've not seen hovering large jets for some time 😁

    Audio for Vatsim

    no problem setting up the new audio on vpilot and euroscope, however had some difficulty staying connected, perhaps due to server overload? Once level of users on line reduced, system worked very well. Missed all aircraft facility logged onto my frequency comms box, although last aircraft calling was useful. As audio is currently standalone was not able to have aircraft calling being circled on europescope for identification. Small points vs excellent new system . Can this new system be used for sweatbox related comms? Aircraft showing ok on PC navigrapgh displays but not on navigraph ipad displays since changing to new audio!

    Hi everyone, I've been having an issue for ages now with the UKCP. I have tried completely removing the plugin and .json file which authenticates the plugin, but every time I reinstall it, it comes up with this error: This means I'm not able to use the plugin correctly (squawks won't assign). Any ideas? Thanks, Will

    Did you try adding the last station and remove it again as per above?
  27. I recently switched from FSInn to vPilot and discovered that the model matching for the FSX family only looks in Simobjects\Airplanes. It should also look in Simobjects\Rotorcraft. Then I wouldn't see hovering 747s on the taxiways! Peter

    Audio for ATC

    I flew bit more and the audio worked fine on it then tried to control on ground but could only hear the last station which I flew which was the EGAA App. The Client says that im on EGBB_GND with the frequency 121.800 but I cant transmit to EGBB GND aircraft and I cant hear them only the aircraft talking with EGAA APP
