ATC

Recommended Posts

I'm about to download P3D v5 for the first time...I'm a returning MSFS user.

Does it have ATC? Or are there addons to enhance it?

Many thanks,

Ben

It does have ATC by default however theres a bug in P3D v5 where P3D gives a DXGI error when opening the ATC window. There are only 2 other ATC related add-ons i could think of, and that is VoxATC and Pro ATC-X. Both of them haven't been officially updated to v5 but both of them can be made to work in v5 without much effort.

Ah ok...I assume they're fixing the bug in P3D?

It says its been fixed in HF1 so it might be working now.

I've never tried VATSIM. Does it give a realistic ATC across the world? 

How does it cope if I leave my aircraft alone for a few hours (say on a 12 hour flight) to just do it's thing? Am I expected to be answerable all of the time?

VATSIM is with a real life human.  It's more realistic now than it ever has been.  I would also say it's more realistic than program alternatives available.  Atleast over here in the US, there are more controllers working than in previous years.  But it's not designed for people to be gone any more than 30 minutes.  Even that it's probably best to just logoff.

Ah ok. Can you log back in halfway through your flight?

Can you use VATSIM with AI traffic? What's the best AI traffic programme to use?

VATSIM is with real people. The people won't communicate with the AI traffic, but instead, communicate with other real people flying.

Thanks...I understand that. But can VATSIM and AI traffic be used at the same time or does the AI interfere with the real people on VATSIM?
