The offline ATC space is really crowded these days

You are incorrect in some of your statements regarding PF3. You do not have to use the Randomizer for departures, arrivals or departures. You also don't enter manually for each airport/ and runway.

?

If you don't manually supply PF3 with sid/star information for each airport/runway (i.e. procedure names, runways, MAp altitudes, airport specific transition altitudes and minimum FAF altitudes) then PF3 simply announces "cleared as filed, Delta-Papa departure" and "cleared to final for Sierra-Tango approach". (It may not be obvious but delta-papa is PF3s abbreviation for "departure procedure" and by sierra-tango it means "standard terminal"). I mostly fly IFR and I find this non-standard phraseology particularly jarring and it ruins my sense of immersion.

I didn't say you "had to use Randomiser for departures, arrivals or departures (sic)". I said you will need Randomiser to "implement dynamic arrivals, departures and parking". The SimRandomiser freeware utility allows PF3 to vary the chance of: vectoring vs procedures, selection of SIDs/STARs and changing airline-based selection of gates.
