UK Controller Pack
The official controller pack for all VATSIM UK positions. Where there are no specific profiles for airports/positions that are used for training, controllers may use the Generic profiles provided within.
Specific Profiles for:
London (Area) Scottish (Area) Birmingham East Midlands Edinburgh Essex - Stansted and Luton Glasgow London Heathrow London Gatwick Manchester Thames - London City and Biggin Observer Group Session Installation instructions are contained within the pack: unzip the controller pack first, then within the 'UK' folder inside will be a README file (PDF format). Please read this carefully before moving the pack into the appropriate location.

The Sector File <- Download Link
You can also use the auto-download feature of EuroScope to obtain the latest version.
Found a bug while using the new sector file? That’s anything from an auto-handoff that doesn’t work, to a missing position, to a misbehaving agreement… Use the EuroScope department of the helpdesk!
Alternate ownerships for observing/mentoring
It's possible for mentors to get the correct sector ownerships without needing to select a primary frequency. Just go to Other settings...Sector ownership setup, click 'select all' and select 'Mentoring TWR/APP' from the list. For mentoring on LON_*_CTR (or SCO_CTR) you will need to select the relevant 'Observing LON_*_CTR' option instead to specify which sector(s) you are interested in.
The LON_*_CTR can also be used for observing purposes rather than mentoring, but this requires a quick edit of the UK.ese file to tell Euroscope what your log-in callsign for observing will be. (E.g. HS_OBS.) Open UK.ese in Notepad or another text editor and the line to edit is at the top and clearly indicated. There's also an 'Observing London FIR' option that will give you ownership of every sector in the FIR, regardless of who else is online.
Adjacent airports shown when using the General Setting 'Set active APT by owned sectors'
There is now an option to choose which departure airports to show, by means of a special runway 00 at '000A Show adjacent departure airports' in the Runway Selector dialogue. This mainly affects London and Scottish Control sectors.
Option 1, with a selected runway 00 on the right hand side (under DEP or ARR, or both, doesn't matter): the departure list will show departures from all airports within the sector, or immediately adjacent to it.
Option 2, with no runway 00 selected: the departure list will show departures only from airports for which you have top-down responsibility for TWR services. That is, only when nobody else is covering it. This is the mode of operation found in previous versions of the sector file.

I have attached some pictures to help explain the problem. My problem being, with aileron trim centered, my joystick calibrated and even the null zones all the same for elevation, throttle and rudder and they are all working fine, when i send my joystick to the centre so its fixed without me even touching it, my plane banks to the right and it is so annoying.
Picture 1= I'm having to apply a small amount of left aileron myself to keep the wings level (which is fine, you probs have to do this in real life to compensate for wind)
Picture 2= I let go of the joystick and the aircraft (PA28 Just Flight) just banks to the right, quite steeply, all by itself (and the yoke is in the middle!)
Picture 3= Eventually, it crashes if I don't turn left
Please help! I really need to get this sorted for any chance of completing the P2 course and flying normal GA.

I'm not a fan of the colours generally used in SMR files due high contrast and illegibility; I would love to customise and unify them on my own personal Euroscope. Specifically, I'm talking about the colours of the runway, taxiways, buildings, grass verges, etc.
Is it a case of changing options in the 'Symbology settings' or editing files in the Euroscope directory? Some help in this area would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
