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?

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.

      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.

      I was flying through London airspace on a few legs this evening and ended up on @Matthew Burton's control frequency a few times. He was on the ball the whole time despite the airspace being continuously busy. Was thoroughly impressed!

      some MORE FLIGHT TRAINING EXCERCISES IN THE NORTH OF ENGLAND / SCOTLAND WOULD BE AMAZING TO BE USED WITH THE THE ORBX TRUE EARTH SCENERY. 
       
      Are there any new ones in the pipeline ?
