Default ATC FS2004/FSX vs P3D

Recommended Posts

Has LM tweaked the default atc at all from what came with FS2004/FSX? I decided to give the default atc a try again with P3D and was presently surprised with how well it worked. You still can’t follow STARS completely, but the vectors actually seemed logical for the most part with a few glitches here and there. Still not Vatsim or real life ATC quality, but better than no ATC at all.

Nope. Doesn't seem so.

The default P3d ATC is virtually the same as that in FSX. It's good enough for the casual user, only because it also communicates with and controls AI aircraft. Once one opts for a 3rd party ATC add-on, things get progressively more confusing. The AI aircraft wander around at the behest of the sim and don't talk to the 3rd party ATC. Further, without either limiting one's flights to and from recent 3rd party airports or updating the sim's navigation database (via fsaerodata), major inconsistencies start to show up between the aircraft's FMS/GPS (based on the latest Navigraph AIRAC 1903) and the sim's navigation database (AIRAC 0612).
