I'd be intersted myself. Not 100% sure of exactly what it would do to improve RC4. I'm not interested in "canned chatter" or adventures, but will go for anything that inproves AI voices. If it does, I would love to hear a wav. file of an ATC conversation. Fitz

Guys,This package will not alter the interaction between the pilots and controllers or change the voices in any way. It provides extra Pre-Recorded chatter which you will only hear if you have that option selected in the 'Plane Information and Options' screen. For those of you that like to hear these 'real-world' sounds it might be useful for you.Speaking personally, I have turned that option off even though I recorded wavs for Manchester (EGCC) some years ago. Hearing 'real' RC4 comms between Ai pilots and controllers does it for me.Cheers,

Hi Anders,I tend to fly from the UK to mainland Europe and I was hearing the same ATC wavs fairly frequently and tired of them. Another reason was the wavs I recorded for Manchester were with 24R/L in operation so when landing on 06L/R they weren't realistic.There were also many airports around the world that had no wavs so you got generic ones. Like hearing EGLL wavs when at EGBB. That happens because all the wavs were placed in a UK folder rather than an airport specific one. If you have lots of specific airport wavs then that would be better.It's difficult to record wavs these days because of security concerns and also it's illegal in many countries.We're all different though and I'm sure you'll enjoy the added realism these wavs will give you.Cheers,

Well I, for one, *really* like the canned chatter running in the background. I don't rigorously listen to it to check if approaches/runways match where I am.It's more of an *ambient* thing for me. I really like to hear it on every flight and am pleased when there's language changes over different countries. However, I'm getting some repetition and beginning to recognize some of the canned chatter routines and stories, so I'd like a bit more variation. This CD looks like just the thing, so I just might order it as well.As luck would have it, though, looks like someone else in this post is the 'guinea pig'. :) PLEASE let me know if it adds a significant amount of the canned stuff. Would be great to know!

I'm sure most of you know this anyway, but viable alternative to canned chatter is running media player in the background tuned to one of the selections from liveatc.net (http://www.liveatc.net/feedindex.php?type=all) It has the same ambient effect, but is live. I'll concede it doesn't cover all areas, but I always use this if I'm flying in an area that is covered. If nothing else it breaks up the repetative nature of the canned chatter.BradKELP/KBIF http://home.elp.rr.com/bmbanister/BannerSig_BMBanister.jpgAMD Athlon XP 2600, Asus A7V600, 1GB PC3200 DDR, NVidia 128MB GeForce 6800, SB Live

Just wondering if anyone ended up picking this up. Does it have an enormous amount of chatter added?
