Just in case anyone hadn't seen this plugin pop up on the .net forums

https://github.com/chembergj/RDF

It draws a circle around the aircraft transmitting (if on screen), or a line to the aircraft if off screen. Can be a massive help when controlling a busy bandboxed sector.

Cheers,

Luke

Used this several times. Mainly on EURW. It’s very handy indeed.

Yes it is. Especially when aircraft outside your airspace call you up and you've no idea where they are and the flight isn't in the inbound list.

I wonder if it could be useful for procedural approach positions? QGH anyone?

You've been on EURW? Traitor.

      Thanks in advance,

      Hello all,
      I was finding a more realistic way to give out PDC's via text. I thought of using these two messages:
      .pdc1 .msg $aircraft $dep PDC: $aircraft CLRD TO $arr $deprwy via $sid INIT ALT: $alt squawk $asquawk ATIS $atiscode NO READBACK REQUIRED. If you're happy with this PDC, please verify by replying to this message, saying: "ACCEPT".
       
      If they reply with 'accept' then I send out this second message.

      .pdc2 .msg $aircraft Thank you, $aircraft. Contact $callsign on frequency $com when FULLY ready to push and start with stand number, ATIS info, aircraft type AND current QNH
      I preferably wanted all of the important information from the second message into the first message. However, I discover that euroscope has a word limit as to how long your messages can be.
      I'm wondering what you guys think of this procedure. Are vatsim pilots very responsive? As well, is there a way to automatically send out the second message by a somewhat means of detection from the pilot when he/she says 'accept'?
      I hope what I just said makes sense. 
       
      Many thanks!
