ATC add on: is it possible?

Recommended Posts

I just finished reading the wish list for FS2004, some people say that most of the things can be achieved through add ons, but i wonder, is there a possibility to create add ons that for example could give simmer the posibility to request altitude changes, or establish holding patterns, alternate airports, etc, is not that i doubt about the talent of the developers, taking a look a the core of this feature, seems to be that is not as open to the developers as the posibility to design and paint AC and scennery for example.I've seen the beautiful workaround that AFCAD gives to the issue of the single runway ops, but that is only a workaround, and I think that as far as the ATC, mayor improvements will only be achieved in the next version. Is there somebody working on any ATC add on? his/her oppinion would be appreciated.PD/ I know that there would be thousands of people, like me that would pay to have an ATC Add on.

I think you will find that "RADAR CONTACT" will be upgraded to work with FS2002 & AI traffic.....(Actually I think that it works with FS2002 anyway - although I am sure that someone will confirm this.)

G,Yes, RC 2.2 works with FS2002 and already meets most of Gabriel's requests. Version 3 will handle alternates and emergencies.Gabriel, go to the Radar Contact site (click the link below), and read up on it and try out the free samples.Visit the RC forum here at AVSim if you have questions.

G,You get traffic calls and there is the AI craft right where it's said to be. ;-) RC cannot, however, control AI craft.

If you mean integrating with the existing ATC wav files then the answer is no. For if thier are no wav files that say the altitude change is requested and then authorized then it couldn't happen. But an external ATC such as RADR Contact could work.Pete

I was extremly surprised.The guy over there said he had passed my mail to the Management team for reviewing, so that's most likely what I wanted.Yeah! :-hahGreat day t'day... :-hahRegards :-wave from EDDFhttp://flightsimmers.net/airport/etti/signature_pro.jpg

Its called an automated reply email. They probably didn't even actually read it. I recieved the exct same respone to an email I sent on another issue.Oh damn,the above wasN'T the reply mail :-8 . What I wrote in the thread you answered to, was, as I already said, a quotation from the FS Insider ( http://zone.msn.com/flightsim/FS02Readback10.asp ) and nuffin else, has NOTHING to do with the replay they sent me.Regardshttp://flightsimmers.net/airport/etti/signature_pro.jpg

>... and, BTW, an "automated reply email" would not have >taken two whole days to come to me... oh the way it was writteh I thought it meant it was an email from the FS Insider group. And you wopuld be surprosed. I've recieved automated replies two days after sending emails to companies before. Its just depends on how clogged the net is at the time I guess.Pete
