best atc for p3d v4

Recommended Posts

Radar Contact is still around and I like it very much, pf3 seems to have trouble understanding different altitudes for sectors and class airspace.

I'd also advice ProATC but I would wait until they solved all the problems with the current version. The latest release was rather buggy.

+ 1 for Radar Contact is it rock solid even after 10+ years!

However the 2 main disadvantages are lack of progressive taxi and SID/STAR handling...

Too bad it has trouble interpreting flight plans.

As long as you don't mind having to pick a star, before you even take off. Not my idea of realism.

I agree, the latest release has a problem which I discovered early on , with P3D version 3.4 They say they can't duplicate the problem, but 4 other people using version 3.4 seeing same issue. Work around is to use version 1.9.1.9 of PATC.

Having no problem with interpreting flight plans or altitudes whatsoever, but I've flown with it in Europe only. In PF3 it's all about proper settings. PF3 is somewhat different in how things are set there from all other ATC programs (an I got all of them), it requires some learning and clear understanding of how your flight is preset. Once you have learnt it you shouldn't have many or say more problems compared to other ATC software. To some reason it is quite fascinating in my opinion. I like the concept and those natural voices of course. Very well supported and mature software.

SID/STAR implementation is the best if you know how to set it up properly. Multiple SIDs/STARs for a runway are available to you, including randomizer if you want.

I used it for a year, almost every day. Still requires setting your arrival before you even take off. If weather changes during your flight, you are screwed. PATC X on the other hand will issue a different arrival, when that happens. That is what happens in the real world.Also not required to memorize a large number of hot keys, like with PF3,

Nope, did you see that SAVE button, hmm?

What it really requires is taking a good look at your flight plan and understanding of how you're going to fligh it before flying. Like real pilots do. Nothing much than that.

I use PF3 with MCE (simple mode, like Voice Attack), very easy, can't recommend more.
