Moochydore ATIS - Any Fix for P3D?

Recommended Posts

Last night I was doing an IFR flight to Brisbane, and was vectored to land on Runway 19, but my IFR clearance was sabotaged by the Moochydore ATIS being on the same frequency as Brisbane Center! The ATIS overrode the ATC and I couldn't respond to ATC, resulting in my IFR being cancelled through no fault of my own. Immensely frustrating, to say the least.


This is apparently a well-known issue in both FSX and P3D. Apparently, the Brisbane Center and Moochydore ATIS are on the same frequency in real life. But in the simulator, that just doesn't work.


Given that Lockheed Martin has fixed some FSX bugs and issues, you'd think maybe they could sort this out. I am aware of a fix for FSX that someone else has done, but that only appears to be for default scenery, and I have Orbx scenery (Global BASE, Global VECTOR, Australia SP4 and YBBN). The AFCAD for Moochydore Airport is inside the ORBX folder (this is the case for both FSX and P3D).


Has a fix for this maddening problem ever been released for P3D? Would the existing fix for FSX work with P3D and/or Orbx scenery? Is there otherwise any kind of way to manually fix it so I can fly IFR to Brisbane without being effectively sabotaged? TIA for any assistance you can provide.

IMHO what you need is YBBN AFCAD file with modified frequency. I highly doubt there is something like that released for ORBX Brisbane and I am not sure if you can modify their files. You could try ask on ORBX forum though. Nothing to be fixed by Lockheed.
