"Vector Corrector"

Recommended Posts

Is anyone working on "cracking" the code that ATC uses to vector your aircraft? Maybes its been done and I am overlooking it somewhere. But it should would be nice to have a little app that allows you to correct vectors that ATC gives you. I know that at several airports they are off from the real world.[div align=center][link:members.cox.net/fstimes/wetimage.html]Click Here For Weather Image of the Day!

I know that at >several airports they are off from the real world.No doubt there's an algorithm that is fairly generic, and based on the runway and wind directions, etc. There likely is nothing specific to a particular airport.Its really the only way basic ATC can be generated for all the airports in FS2002.It'd be a waste of time to even try and change it.Regards.Ernie.

Yes there is a simple pattern it always instruct you to intercecept the glideslope at 30 degrees of its heading.

True, but VATSIM has a limited air space in which users can get controlled. :(

While there is likely no way to get this first generation version of ATC to be more accurate, I have discovered that as long as you are within 10 degrees of their instructed vector, ATC won't yell at you. So when they give me a heading that is, for example, too direct to an ILS approach, I just adjust myself, keeping in mind to 10 degree window. Not "As real as it gets", but workable.
