Online YS ATC General Discussion

Post by VNAF ONE » Tue Dec 16, 2014 4:17 am

Thought it'd be nice just to have a place to talk about our impromptu or planned YS ATC sessions.

Tonight on Venom's server, SC, Venom, and I as well as some others who joined us (Bombcat, Gizmos) decided to fly in some low visibility conditions around Hawaii at night. SC instructed Venom on flying ILS approaches and IFR flight procedures, while I provided ATC for all phases of their flight from clearance to TAC. We had tons of fun! I learned a bunch on controlling in IFR conditions (Turbo, we may need to add to the manual) and Venom learned a bunch and flew some pretty nice approaches (and had some SERIOUS scares!!!).

Anyways, here's some shots of the results of the approaches, as well as the vectors I gave them. I used Skyvector to vector Venom around terrain and to the correct ILS approaches. I also pulled up some of the ILS approach plates through FlightAware and the airport diagrams from AirNav.

IFR Flight Plan from Dillingham to Honolulu. Skyhawk 171DB just landed on RW8L at HNL.

IFR Flight from Honolulu to Molokai. Rhino flight lands on RW23 at HMK.

Scarecrow and I had such a good time sharing our knowledge of Instrument flying and wouldn't mind doing something like this again. We may see more sessions like this again.

This was extremely fun. I enjoyed flying right seat in the Cessna with Venom teaching him how to do basic ILS approaches. It was real enjoyable. I'd be happy to take anyone willing to do this again. We flew on my new Hawaii map in zero-zero visibility and at night. It was pretty outstanding popping out of the clouds right at minimums and there's a runway there!

Hope for more soon. I must say, that two ship F/A-18D formation ILS approach to Molokai looked darn sweet coming out of the clouds.

Looks awesome. Nice work people! :)
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Honestly, this was the most fun I've had on YS in a LOOOOONG time! Look forward to some IFR Fun-Flight Night events coming in the near future!

Pretty sweet. Yeah, I'll come up with something for IFR controlling in the manual. That will be a nice addition too.

I'm willing, if anyone's interested today, to host a ATC Session on the Grun Squadron Server, which has been recently updated to OYS December 2016.

Making bright lights with the star-like glow is visible only in the OpenGL2 version of YS. As for the blur it's probably just a visibility reduction through server settings.

@u2: Add ZL xxxx line to end of SURF file where xxxx is the polygon id to make a star light:

Code: Select all

Surf
VER 50.000 0.000 -50.000
VER -50.000 0.000 -50.000
VER -50.000 0.000 50.000
VER 50.000 0.000 50.000
FAC
COL 0 0 255
NOR 0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000 1.000 -0.000
VER 0 1 2 3
END
ZL 1
END
ZL creates a star light effect on the polygons center as defined in NOR 0.000 0.000 0.000
