FSW 414 - Modifying aircraft.cfg for ATC callouts

Recommended Posts

Flying the beta Chancellor quite a bit these days and really like it.

I have noticed that ATC do not call out the manufacturer and model of the Chancellor... I figured out that the aircraft.cfg file is missing the necessary definitions.

I have added the following to mine under [GENERAL] based on what I found in the original aircraft.cfg file for the JF Turbo Arrows:

atc_type = "TT:ATCCOM.ATC_NAME CESSNA.0.text"
atc_model = "TT:ATCCOM.AC_MODEL C414.0.text" 

At least now they call me up and I respond with "Cessna blah blah"... 🙂

I can't remember if there is a situation when the model designator is also used by/with ATC, so I am not sure yet if that works.

Can anyone give an example in which situation the model designator is called out, then I can check...

Got it after some experimenting!

When requesting e.g. a Class C airspace transition the aircraft model will also be called. With the edits I listed, the Chancellor will be referenced as Cessna 414 as per ICAO database.

All the aircraft model and manufacturer strings the sim's text to speech recognizes are in the "\Official\-steam or msstore-\fs-base\en-US.locPak" file.

it can be opened with a text editor and searched.

You can also do '$$:TextHere' and the TTS will read it

@Tuskin38 - thanks. That works great.

Do you know how to make it read "four one four" or "four fourteen" instead of "four hundred and fourteen"?

You may have to do a custom string as I suggested with $$ and just type out Four One Four.
