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.

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?

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,
      Just a massive thank you and well done to the poeple that organised the Aberdeen event today. I have been around this network for a long time. Today's event was......epic! 
      I have never seen so many helis on the network, the controllers where on point and the whole thing seemed to go swimmingly. Hopefully, this will become a regular thing. 
       
      Well done again and thank you
       
      GOSEM!

      Hello Vat simmers!
       
      Today i was doing my normal flight then BAM my right engine has a flame out. I just wanted to give special feedback to Glyn Harding (Jersey tower) for dealing with me and doing an outstanding job at Jersey when things where deer. Very well done to him and Callum Axon (London West) for helping me land this bird. 
      From Jack

      Keen to follow real world ops and wondering why on Vatsim, EGLL has been doing dual runway ops lately when in real world they are doing singles, at least whenever I have been flying that's the case.
       
      I am assuming because Vatsim is ironically busier than real life at the moment, but curious to know for sure.
       
      Cheers, stay safe

      I have got to pass on my thanks to all the controllers on tonight's Gatwick Midweek Madness. I have only been using Vatsim for a couple of weeks but I am absolutely blown away by the professionalism of everyone, especially the ATC. I thought I would take a quick flight from EGCC to EGKK on N390GM but diverted off the EGKA when I heard there was a 50 minute delay. I could see how incredibly busy the airway was as I flew underneath everyone so I quickly bowed out before my inexperience showed itself. Well done all.
