    IFR release

    I just flew out of PAYA and had to Google IFR Release, which brought me to this article! The IFR was released with no issues, I did not call out "Callsign passing 1000" however. I was able to request descent later on in the flight with no issues.
  2. Ah OK thanks! Did not know that.
  3. When I click the button minimize button to the left of COM1, it moves the P2ATC window off my monitors screens. I have to use the SHIFT+RIGHT_CLICK in the Windows taskbar then select MOVE then use the keyboard LEFT ARROW key until the program starts to slowly wander onto my leftmost monitor where I can then manipulate it with the mouse and resize it to a normal sized screen where I can see it. I have two monitors which may contribute to this). It took a while to figure out what was going on, because I did not know what the button was for and it appeared at first glance to be an option to minimize the program (permanently!). Screenshot I could replicate this happily several times, but then on another attempt, it seems to be working again, so I assume it is sensitive to the original windows position when you click the button. When it goes wrong it seems to be moving the window off screen somewhere. Incidentally when this happened, shortly afterwards X-Plane 11 crashed as well, not sure if that was related, I would like to think it confused Windows 10 to the extent that it took X-Plane down with it!

    What is this airport

    Thank you, I was looking for it in the Alps!
  5. I should probably know this, but where is this airport?

    Proper Way of Requesting a Different runway?

    A new day and it seems to be working correctly now contrary to my post above, perhaps I just needed to restart XP & P2ATC. The filed flight plan does not show any procedures but I was given some. I don't understand what you mean by connecting the last waypoint in the route to a STAR - I only have the default TOD PT in the route, is that not connected to all STARS in the world? Or if I was to add another real waypoint near the destination airport, how does it connect to the STAR, does it have to be a point on the STAR or just have to be sensibly close? Incidentally, from a usage point of view I don't care so much about being surprised or not, if the route would be drawn on the map that would help me understand what is going on better, especially from a troubleshooting perspective & learning perspective. I can always pretend to be surprised. Perhaps I am misunderstanding and 'Auto Load' effectively only means 'Draw on map' and 'Force Pilot Runway Selection' means 'Never let ATC determine procedures'. I have read the manual a few times but still unclear, perhaps as this is my first real attempt at ATC so I have no proper context how things should really flow. Ultimately, what I desire is as follows, is this possible?: 'File' to generate a full flight plan that is accurate to weather at that point in time, and always draw the full flight plan the screen. I can then add sensible intermediate waypoints that hopefully don't break the logic. P2ATC to always give me new procedures if the weather changes, and to update the map as well if that happens en-route. I never want to control this. I then have to change the plan in my FMC. If I happen to go for a coffee break, I come back and may notice the map has changed.

    When I have Auto Load Recommended Procedures unchecked, they are filled in. Not sure if I understand or if there is a bug?

    X-Plane 11 or others

    I was on FSX for a long time, and it served me well. I enjoyed the variety of planes and bobbing up and down the PNW in my throaty DHC2. I found the graphics in FSX a little basic and once X-Plane 11 came out I made the switch, deleting FSX was a difficult moment... Looking back I miss the add-on weather engines for FSX, and the variety of airplanes. For me flying through clouds, rain, snow, hail & visibility is about 50% of the immersion. But then again, X-Plane is advancing rapidly. I cannot speak for P3D, but if money was not a problem I would have both. For example I feel there is no turbo prop to in X-Plane to compare to the the Majestic Dash 8 in FSX/P3D.

    So slow sometimes (specifically SIDS at RIGA)

    Same issue I think

    It cannot be the number of SIDS/STARS, because KJFK to KATL and KATL to KJFK both load in a few seconds, and there is a silly number of SIDS and STARS at KATL! So must be RIGA specifically with something unusual.

    So slow sometimes (specifically SIDS at RIGA)

    I think the issue is to do with loading SIDS at EVRA specifically, (when clicking the SID button): With route set from EVRA to PAJN, SIDS are broken, STARS load OK. With route set from PAJN to EVRA, STARS load OK, SIDS load OK. So there are several SIDS at RIGA, but not too many to handle?

    Also, when I click 'New' after waiting several minutes, the screen clears, but the spinning progress bar remains a while. For the user, this is confusing / disconcerting. It does go away after a while, so it must have been doing something, although there was no CPU activity. I send these in a positive spirit I look forward to all improvements as they come. EDIT: The workaround is to click Waypoint, then Cancel, and the spinning progress goes away.
  13. Sometimes, everything works great and efficiently. Sometimes it takes ages and ages (or possibly not at all as I give up after several minutes) to connect to X-Plane, and also to either Validate or Auto Plan. I'm sure it can be made quicker somehow? For example it has been stuck on this screen a long time if I try either Validate, File, or Auto Plan. I have tried restarting Pilot2ATC as well as X-Plane. I have also tried entering some intermediate waypoints (as shown in the screen shot below) hoping maybe it would reduce the pathing in Pilot2ATC. My PC is quite powerful, with SSD and HDD, and nothing much else happening. Other flights work efficiently, perhaps if the area is very busy it becomes slow? As a comparison, Little Navmap works suggests routes very quickly (using the same Airac 1801).

    Don't ignore me

    Thanks, I cannot at this point recall if I had requested diversion to the other airport or not. I look forward to updates.
