New to the controller plugin, and I am assuming this is from it. However, The QNH they sent is for another airport. I am only working and only have active Manchester.

Turn off QNH updates in the UKCP general settings.

No worries, also just check you have none of the 8 boxes ticked for EGPF in the runway selection dialog box - having one or more of these ticked may be the reason you're getting a QNH update for EGPF.

I made sure all the boxes were unticked, however, I do not see a UKCP General Settings. Maybe I am just missing it?

EGPF/CC/LL are all special in EuroScope... During testing, we found that most airfields only give the plugin METAR updates if they’re active, but LL/PF/CC seem to do it regardless. We have no idea why sorry.

Something to do with the fact that the TMA MSL’s are based off these QNH’s?

Maybe - but it’s certainly nothing to do with anything EuroScopes api says it can be made to do. It’s a special case that appears to be baked into ES, maybe Craig requested something special for VCA, who knows.

Could it not be the UK Plugin's MSL display that triggers it? The plugin must be calling for those METARs to keep the display up to date regardless of airfields the controller is responsible for. (I'm just doing my logic speculation again! following Luke's idea)

No, it’s not the MSL display. I observed the behaviour described (where ES sends METAR updates to plugins) during experiments before I even wrote the MSL functionality and with all other plugins disabled. For some reason or another, ES just treats those fields differently.

We initially load MSLs by a separate call external to ES, we only hook into the ES metar feed (which is usually determined by active airfields), for updates as time progresses.

Theres actually no way in ES for a plugin to “request” a metar, it can only receive them when ES fires a METAR update event.

      Hi Guys, I had an issue yesterday on vatsim, I was doing the event in the LEIB closing parties for. EGKK to LEIB. I have recently just installed new hardware.(upgrades rudder pedals to be precise) however just after take off my computer took a panic attack and all my programs crash. In which I had no other way but to ctl alt delete and shut computer down through task manager as the pc was completely locked out. For whatever reason during this and even though my computer had completely shut down my vpilot didn’t disconnect from the network. There was literally nothing I could do. I have re installed the hardware and cured the problem and are under the opinion this was the issue as never before have I had it before. I reloaded my pc and it opened with no programmes showing as open. However to my surprise today I have a warning in my emails from a sup instead of asking me for an explanation in red writing in breach of code of conduct. If he had have asked me 1st I could have gave him that explanation. This occurred just after take off and I was in contact with the tower. I am all about the supervisors contacting me. To get an email just jumping to not even investigate has really annoyed me. I have flew a considerable umber of flights on vatsim since I started a couple of months back with absolutely  no issues. Seems like genuine circumstances aren’t considered, you are just guessed to have gone away without permission. I absolutely respect the code of conduct and every pilot, so if I was in your way yesterday again had no control and because my pc had to be shut down I thought clearly it would have disconnected me form vpilot so apologies if that was the case. Though as you can probably tell I am Not pleased about the warning. Maybe sups going forward when they have issue is to ask 1st of all the issue. The computer crash was a disaster for me too. Everyone who flies on here knows, you don’t set up a flight and waste all that time in the pre flight getting everything perfect to not fly your flight. The sup says he tried to connect me through vpilot but again due to the situation I didn’t get any messages!

      Hello Everyone,
       
      Hope im not out of place saying this but it is something that i have noticed during my training for Vatsim ATC.
      Each mentor ive had has insisted on using a certain way for giving taxi instructions, for example
      "BAW001 taxi holding point J4 Runway 08R Via J"
      Now due to my line of work at EGKK i listen to ATC all the time when working, and the way every air traffic controller issues taxi instructions is, 
      "BAW001 taxi J hold J4"
      Many a time just 
      "BAW001 J J4"
      Due to me hearing this all the time IRL, i have been making the "mistake" of using this way of instruction on the network and being told by the mentor that it is incorrect.
      Im just wondering if there is a specific reason that it is done this way on Vatsim and it not the same way as IRL.
       
      Thanks 
       
      Jordan

      Hi,
      I was trying to book a session on Gatwick Tower today for after a mentoring session while I was controlling it but the CTS gave me an error (https://prnt.sc/iqqkgw) saying that I am currently logged on to the position and must only book from the present to "make it fair for everyone". Is it possible that this could be removed as it is quite a pain and I see no point in having it.
      Thanks

      Thanks to all the controllers (and pilots) that made the Stuttgart to London City event such a great evening. It was nice to see Vatsim provide an event suited to the turboprop addicts with comprehensive ATC cover all round. It was nice to stretch the Dash 8's legs. Hopefully there may be more of this coming up?
