ATC Sunday! 6 PM GMT (recurring)

Post by Fariiniq » Sun Feb 05, 2012 5:52 am

Every sunday there is ATC starting at 18.00 GMT on the ATC Sunday server! Usually we have at least 2 controllers, so hop on in and have some fun!

If you are unfamiliar with ATC, please read around some of the manuals around and feel free to ask questions. Anyone misbehaving will be warned and then banned.


Next Sunday's Instructions: (12.2.2012)

IMPORTANT!

Wether you are using a microphone or not, please use the teamspeak channels! Only if for some reason you can't run teamspeak, you may use YSFlight's chat! In that case you have to clear it first with a controller, so we can keep track.

When joining the server at fariiniq.dyndns.org start at HNL_SCENIC (1 or 2) and contact ground control or if not available; immediately tower control. You will be instructed. Do not move or do anything before you have been instructed!

When iniating communication with the tower, please state your flightplan so we can best guide you!

When you are not in a controlled airspace, use the AREA CONTROL channel!

Controllers:
18.00 GMT --> : Fariiniq
18.00 GMT --> : Dan

I'll see you all at roughly 2100 GMT. I'll be conducting pro leauge ATC. Those wishing to participate can expect ATIS, Clearance, Departure, Arrivals, Tower, Center, and specifics for Taxi, Air Highways, Flight Levels, Altitude and Speed Enforcements, Airspace Class Interaction, IFR Flight Plan Filing, Flight Following AAAAANNNDDDDD Simulated Traffic Transfers between all these. :)

There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Oh, man, I am NOT going to miss this. I'ma get up early tomorrow and be on until the start of the Super Bowl (BTW, GO PATS!!! IT'S REVENGE TIME!!!). I've been practicing my ATC thanks to a little website called http://www.liveatc.net/ and by listening to Tower communications from Sea-Tac Int'l Airport. Time to put what I've learned into practice.

I've just wrapped up my shift on Kona Ground, it was a blast!

This event attracted so many players that a bunch of them spilled over into my own server, which hasn't had much activity.

We had a little situation with a lag clone on one end of the runway, since there weren't any weapons, we couldn't get rid of it! But it got dealt with, while an extremely patient Dragonheart taxied all the way to the other end of Kona in the meantime :roll:

All in all, very fun, and I was dying to be in the air myself, with customized visibility and wind.

Summary

Post by Fariiniq » Mon Feb 06, 2012 7:21 am

Thank you all for participating! It was really a blast and I logged 61 different users participating trough-out the event!

What's coming up?
I will be installing more VA's packs to the server.
The event will be expanding for more time-zones.
We're gonna have 2 controlled areas simultaneously and a flight-plan filing system, for extended realism.

Once again thank you for the support and hope to see you next Sunday!

Next Sunday's Instructions: (12.2.2012)

IMPORTANT!

Wether you are using a microphone or not, please use the teamspeak channels! Only if for some reason you can't run teamspeak, you may use YSFlight's chat! In that case you have to clear it first with a controller, so we can keep track.

When joining the server at fariiniq.dyndns.org start at HNL_SCENIC (1 or 2) and contact ground control or if not available; immediately tower control. You will be instructed. Do not move or do anything before you have been instructed!

When iniating communication with the tower, please state your flightplan so we can best guide you!

When you are not in a controlled airspace, use the AREA CONTROL channel!

PS. During the event the controllers are tied up at some points of controlling more than 20 aircraft at the same time, so remember to be patient. The session is not the right place for off topic discussion, feedback or spamming questions. The necessary instructions will be available here and on teamspeak, so just follow them and you'll get contact with a controller who can further help you with any issues. Please respect the controllers by being informed of what's suppose to be going on. If your not there to participate but for other motives, the controller's won't respect you. Just a reminder for everyone.

Edit:

The server disables weapons for security, so that's not possible.

Yay! A couple of hours to go for the next ATC Sunday to start.

The server is now open. You are welcome to hop on. ATC Starts at 6 GMT. Remember to read the instructions for this Sunday!

PS. The server will be left open after ATC stops.

EDIT: A couple of things. The server has a huge amount of planes, so be patient when logging in. It may take a couple of minutes. Some users have been getting a bit of lag and connection issues. I confirmed today it's caused by YSPS, so change your port to 7914 (which disables YSPS) and connect again if this occurs to you.

@ Crazypilot: I'm usually drunk saturdays. But I'm looking if there's a better time slot to arrange this in the future.

@ albert: It says 18.00 which means 6PM GMT.

Edit: The 2nd Sunday didn't go well. The event was virtually dead. But the first one was a huge success. So I'd like to ask you guys to post some feedback. What is it you're looking for? Is it simply that the event is recurring? Because the same thing happened with the ATC events in the past. They slowly died after huge success. Help us develop the event for the benefit of all.

PS. An idea: I would make a flight-plan system. Only pilots who have filled a flight-plan may spawn in the event. (You could fill a flight-plan during the week and also when the event starts.) Pilots have to follow the flight-plan and this way the ATC action gets a lot more detailed and realistic. Also it keeps some kind of control and eases the workload of controllers.
2nd idea is that we would
