    Speaking as a 70 year-old now, we need all the help we can get. Frankly, without ES assistance I would find it quite impossible to control an area sector at all!🙁

    Yes and I would’ve - in the the past - been the first person to suggest that and argue against this. But even with the descending arrow, I have had to remind people on many occasions of the fact that the agreement above is descending FL160 via VATON, students and rated controllers alike. Either people don’t read and drill in Procedure Changes, or they have an obsession with all agreements having a level by point. There are controllers, for example, who I have heard say (every time) “descend FL80 level by LAM” out of habit rather than necessity. I’m of the opinion now that given most controllers - me included on sectors I don’t know as well - do rely on EuroScope as, at the very least, their reminder and otherwise simply the gospel... these arrows might go some way toward encouraging correct usage. As it has always been, if no agreement shows then you would 1) check/know if there is one, or 2) coordinate unless tfc is at cruise. In addition, it’s up to students to take the initiative and potentially reduce their training length by learning agreements and thus seeing the cascading time saving effects across their controlling. But it can’t be forced on VATSIM! I will also continue to point out to people where agreements haven’t been used correctly hopefully in the nicest way possible, as I did the other night without a fuss.

    Useful Harry - however playing Devil’s Advocate, doesn’t this take away from controllers learning their sectors and the agreements therein?

    Hi all, I've been working to trawl through the agreements in the sector file to introduce more of the arrows to indicate that an agreement is climbing/descending (rather than level by the point shown), so you should start to see more of these with an update to 2019/05 when it's out. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, the first few were introduced in December, and are as shown in this procedure change post. (And also here:) [If you're not seeing them, you might need to expand the width of your Sector exit point name column to 6 rather than 5.] As they are rolled out, I'd quite like to know whether people find the fix name useful at all. They're perhaps advantageous in that they give you a rough idea of where the transfer takes place, but I'm of the personal opinion that they might look better as simply an arrow in order to differentiate completely from those agreements that are actually level by. What do you think?
  13. That's a quick fix, but let's try and address a real fix too! What frequency is priming up when you log on with that callsign? In the sector file, we've got 119.000, which is the closest possible to the real world 119.005. If you're not using that, then the 'Select active APT from active sectors' won't work correctly. 🙂
  14. Brilliant, thanks Fraser!
  15. Under general settings on Euroscope there is an option, 'Select active APT from active sectors.'. If you disable that, you should be able to manually select EGNS in the arrival/departure select dialog without it constantly removing your changes.
  16. I'm hoping someone here can help... When I log in as EGNS_TWR, I am unable to view the departure/arrival lists, as when I open the "Active airport/runway selector dialog" and choose the EGNS (or any other airport) "DEP" and "ARR" on the left, then click "OK", nothing happens. When I re-open the dialog the airport is not selected, even though i just selected it and clicked "OK". If I log in using my observer call sign (PLM_OBS), I am able to select the airport and it stays selected, showing me the METAR and any aircraft in the lists. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Peter P.S. I am using the "Generic SMR" profile in one instance of Euroscope and the "Generic APP" profile in the second instance connected via proxy, if that makes any difference(?).

    No Traffic on EGKK SMR

    Hi all, Newbie question but I'm just starting out on looking to join the controller community but whenever I try to observe what happening on the ground at EGKK, I'm unable to see any of the traffic that I expect to be there from what shown on Vattastic (and what I can hear happening over the radio). I believe that I have setup correctly as if I use the combined profile for EGCC, I can see traffic on both the Radar and SMR views, I just don't seem to get anything for EGKK with either the combined or SMR specific profile for EGKK. Have I missed something stupidly obvious in the setup process? I'm using Euroscope 3.2 and the 2019/01 UK Controller Pack R. Mark
