Installing New UKCP

Recommended Posts

Archie Bailey


Can someone explain how to install the new UKCP - when I downloaded the zip file I have loads of different folders including 'lib', 'resource', 'spike', 'test' and many more. I just don't know what to do with them and what needs to be done inside of Euroscope.

Any help would be great.

Not sure which UKCP you're referring to (yes it's confusing!) but I don't see those folders from these downloads:

- UK Controller Pack:  https://community.vatsim.uk/files/downloads/file/61-uk-controller-pack/
- UK Controller Plugin: https://community.vatsim.uk/files/downloads/file/215-uk-controller-plugin/

What link are you using to see those folders in your download?

No problem Archie.   The Github link is to download a raw copy of the code for it hence all the folders etc., useful if you have the skills to be able to contribute to the project.

      Good Afternoon 
      I have had a major hard drive failure on the computer I originally had Euroscope and my controller plugin downloaded to. I have reinstalled Euroscope to a different PC, how do I go about re-downloading my plugin key?
      Resetting everything up has given the kick up the 'APU' to complete my Manchester S1 exam so any advice here gratefully received.
      Kind Regards

      The Sector File <- Download Link
      You can also use the auto-download feature of EuroScope to obtain the latest version.
      Found a bug while using the new sector file? That’s anything from an auto-handoff that doesn’t work, to a missing position, to a misbehaving agreement… Use the EuroScope department of the helpdesk!
      Alternate ownerships for observing/mentoring
      It's possible for mentors to get the correct sector ownerships without needing to select a primary frequency. Just go to Other settings...Sector ownership setup, click 'select all' and select 'Mentoring TWR/APP' from the list. For mentoring on LON_*_CTR (or SCO_CTR) you will need to select the relevant 'Observing LON_*_CTR' option instead to specify which sector(s) you are interested in.
      The LON_*_CTR can also be used for observing purposes rather than mentoring, but this requires a quick edit of the UK.ese file to tell Euroscope what your log-in callsign for observing will be. (E.g. HS_OBS.) Open UK.ese in Notepad or another text editor and the line to edit is at the top and clearly indicated. There's also an 'Observing London FIR' option that will give you ownership of every sector in the FIR, regardless of who else is online.
      Adjacent airports shown when using the General Setting 'Set active APT by owned sectors'
      There is now an option to choose which departure airports to show, by means of a special runway 00 at '000A Show adjacent departure airports' in the Runway Selector dialogue. This mainly affects London and Scottish Control sectors.
      Option 1, with a selected runway 00 on the right hand side (under DEP or ARR, or both, doesn't matter): the departure list will show departures from all airports within the sector, or immediately adjacent to it.
      Option 2, with no runway 00 selected: the departure list will show departures only from airports for which you have top-down responsibility for TWR services. That is, only when nobody else is covering it. This is the mode of operation found in previous versions of the sector file.
      Updating the sector file in the controller pack
      If you're using a controller pack later than 2020/02 - you can use the auto-download tool built in to Euroscope. This will automatically download the new sector file and ask if you want to use it in place of the previous version.
      If you prefer to do things manually, if your ASR is looking for a file called "UK.sct" - you can simply rename the sectorfile you have downloaded. If you want to have some automation, you can change each ASR to look for UK_yyyy_mm.sct and add your new sector file to the folder located at Euroscope\UK\Data\sector\...  - Euroscope will prompt you to use the latest version of the sector file each time you load Euroscope.
      Contributing to the Project
      We always welcome contributions as the sector file works best when we all work towards keeping it updated. Below you can find the repository of data and the guide to contributing to our sector file in a future cycle.

      Hello All, 
      I've had this issue for a while however I've been unable to find a fix for this and it has meant that I've been unable to control much as self allocating squawks etc is a proper nightmare!
      When I load UKCP (.dll is held in Documents/Euroscope/UK/Data/Plugins, .json is held in Documents/Euroscope/ukcp) I get an error message saying: EuroScopePluginInit Caused an exception in Documents\EuroScope\UK\Data\Plugin\UKControllerPlugin.dll 
      I used to be able to fix it by uninstalling and reinstalling euroscope however this now no longer works. 
      any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated!
