atc-discussion Sector files / EuroNAT plugin for Euroscope

Recommended Posts

Michal Fira

Dear Shanwick Controllers,

 

Yesterday, Kieran uploaded clear sector-file for Shanwick, please make sure that this sectorfile is our current sectorfile and there will be no further updates unless it is needed. Additionally, for those who likes having NATS being displayed we have found recently the plugin written by Michael Freudeman. I have given it go and it works really well.

 

http://nova37.com/euroNAT.zip

 

Plugin instruction is here:

 

 

 

Installation Instructions:
1. Download and extract the DLL and wp.mdb together to any folder. Preferably a Euroscope one.
2. Open Euroscope and go to: Other SET > Plug-ins ...
3. Click the Load button and find where you extracted the DLL and click open.
4. Select the Plugin from the top menu and move 'Standard ES radar screen' from the Forbidden to draw on type list to the Allowed to draw on types list by selecting it and using the left arrows button.
5. Close the Plug-in dialog

Usage:
.natoptions
Opens the options dialog box.

.natrefresh
Force a refresh of the NAT data from the web.

.natshow <east|west|all|none|gui>
Toggle showing of east/west/all or none of the tracks, 'gui' opens the options dialog.

.natopt <linestyle|letters> <<dotted|solid|none>|<show|hide>>
Toggle styles for the lines and show/hide the NAT letter designators.

Mouse-over a WP to show its' NAT info.

 

Topic of the plugin is to be found here; http://www.nyartcc.org/bigapple/threads/9628-NAT-Plugin - please do not hesitate contacting the author of the plugin with comments/bug reports.

Best Regards and have fun!
Kieran and Michal

Hi K&M

 

If you've only just found this plug in then I'm sorry I didn't link to it before.

 

I had a problem, which I reported but never got a reply. http://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=52750#p453060

 

I haven't used it since but it might have been a coincidence as there were other reports of the IP address file being changed by network problems.

That seems to be a bug that was reported separately around the same time regarding an issue with the server list Phill. Are you certain that wasn't just a coincidence?

Evening Kieran,

Missed that bit  :rolleyes: skim-reading forum posts doesn't always pay off!

 

In that case, I'd bet that you're right about the coincidence. I'd be surprised if ES plugins had the ability to modify that file.

There is an updated version out there somewhere... not sure if it's made it's way onto the site yet.

The version sent to the CTP controllers has the new fixes and GOTA in it, unless it's super secret and not to be shared I can upload it for you. Kieran?

I think I generated the CTP one from an existing update. I'm sure Michal/Simon have a version, so they can probably update it if that file is appropriate.

The sector file is, as far as I'm concern, complete and ready to be published! However, I'll have to speak with @Anders Moen and the respective "sector file-team" (that is @Harry Sugden) first.

To answer your question, Claire; I think it's just around the corner. :)

I believe that has to go through the RTS system, if you are looking for sessions. Pure theory can be arranged 'off the record' (unofficially) on the VATUK Teamspeak server ;)

In case that someone is interested, I have used 2016's CTP-files and current EGGX-files to create a more up to date .SCT and .ESE for Shanwick and Gander.

You can fetch it here: LINK

      Hello all,
      I was finding a more realistic way to give out PDC's via text. I thought of using these two messages:
      .pdc1 .msg $aircraft $dep PDC: $aircraft CLRD TO $arr $deprwy via $sid INIT ALT: $alt squawk $asquawk ATIS $atiscode NO READBACK REQUIRED. If you're happy with this PDC, please verify by replying to this message, saying: "ACCEPT".
       
      If they reply with 'accept' then I send out this second message.

      .pdc2 .msg $aircraft Thank you, $aircraft. Contact $callsign on frequency $com when FULLY ready to push and start with stand number, ATIS info, aircraft type AND current QNH
      I preferably wanted all of the important information from the second message into the first message. However, I discover that euroscope has a word limit as to how long your messages can be.
      I'm wondering what you guys think of this procedure. Are vatsim pilots very responsive? As well, is there a way to automatically send out the second message by a somewhat means of detection from the pilot when he/she says 'accept'?
      I hope what I just said makes sense. 
       
      Many thanks!
