Is there any any logic to the display of the aircraft type and wake category with the plugin?
Having essentially ported from VCA, I note that any string within the filed a/c type is also displayed, and somewhat limits the UK wake category.
i.e. if someone has filed A319/L or H/B77L/X the plugin will display A319/L/M or H/B77L/X/H respectively. (doesn't fit nicely in my 7 character box)
The only method to get a correct display is to remove the other bits the person has filed, to just leave the correct ICAO code.
EuroScope itself seems to be able to ignore the FAA equipment code that people file, but this part of the plugin doesn't.
Maybe this will all be fixed when VATSIM finally moves to the ICAO flight plan format?
P.s. Good Work!

Recently while I was controlling as EGKK_GND and EGKK_DEL I have encountered some problems regarding radio communication. Pilots are complaining that I am not responding to them, the thing is I wont be able to hear any of the transmissions from the pilots until and unless I transmit to them after that I will be able to hear the transmissions from them and again after few minutes the problem started again.

i had my very first session as S1 at Edinburgh today and had a lot of fun, thanks to all the pilots that flew through and my fellow controllers online in Tower and APP.
I had one problem though, only in euroacope I could not hit T. Euroscope would not acknowledge my T key at all. It was fine on other software. I carried on regardless, just some of my text messages were a bit funky, like “Axi sand 21 via A L G” 🙂
I hope someone can help.

Guys. I am aware of the new SIDs at some of our airfields (eg FRANE at EGKK). In VCA we have codes such as '.vca s ' that allows sqks to be set and '.vca i ' that sets initial altitudes for SIDs. But there is obviously some code that allows each SID to be assigned to a runway. What is it? Info is a tad light here. Thanks

As most of you know we used to run a controller Live Stream series called "Behind The Scope", this is where controllers would live stream on our YouTube channel. We are bringing this series back tomorrow night (2nd December) at 1800z. The plan is to run this every two weeks between 1800z and 2100z on Sunday evenings with around 2 or 3 controllers streaming in that slot. If you would like to stream, please get in touch by sending a ticket to marketing.*We have enough controllers for tomorrow*
Members wishing to stream must be:
S2 rated or higher;
A UK home member in good standing.
To ensure that the streams are of sufficient technical quality, members wishing to stream should also ensure the following:
Access to an UPLOAD speed of at least 2500 Kbps (2.5Mbps) - test my speed;
Hardware capable of streaming 720p at 30FPS.
