X-ATC-Chatter density control

Recommended Posts

Hi Dave,

I posted this message on the X-ATC-Chatter forum and Mark asked me to post this here in case you had some advice:

I'd like to verify my approach to controlling the density of the chatter I'm getting on a given frequency.  For example, I'm flying out of a small class D field (KLEB) so the level of traffic I'm hearing on the Ground and Tower frequencies is unrealistically high.  In order to make this more reasonable, I've resorted to adjusting the Pause to something quite large like 90 seconds.  That is pretty realistic for these small fields but when I tune to Boston Center, I have to pause the game and drop the time-between back to around 5 seconds.   Is this the best I can do?  Am I missing anything as to how this program is designed to work?

This seemed to work well except that the largest pause I can enter is 99 seconds which is much too small anyway for small class G/E fields and is inappropriate of other frequencies like Boston Center.

Any suggestions?

Thanks so much!

The way you're doing it is the only option for now.

I'll investigate and see if there is something that can be reasonably put on the future enhancements list.

+1 I think even the current 90 sec pause is not working properly.

Did you set the Minimum pause to 85 and the maximum to 90?

The pause time is supposed to be selected randomly between those two numbers.

The max will be raised to 360 (6 minutes) in the next update.

Hello Dave,

Yes,  I have the min and max values set as you describe.   That works well.   6 minutes would be even better.   Thank you very much!
