    With the Scenery for Stockholm Skavsta ESKN being released today maybe an event here would something to look in to. With both Ryanair and Wizzair as well as VFR and other GA I'm sure we could attract some traffic. This could of course be combined with other regional airports for a "regional airport event" https://www.facebook.com/groups/vatsim/permalink/10159961144625602/

    +1 For Skavsta, maybe an all ÖKC-event, as mentioned several times, also possible to contact vRAF and invite them to Malmen as they have been doing quite some visits in Scandinavia lately!

    @Hampus Norrby is up for his Major Airport Endorsement on ESSA_TWR wednesday february 7th at 18Z Stockholm-Arlanda is of course the major airport in Sweden, serving hundreds of destinations from all over the world. Come help Hampus earn his endorsement by flying IFR or VFR from this beautiful airport. Best scenery to use if by far ORBX ESSA, with Aerosoft Mega Stockholm behind. @Martin Loxbo has also made a BGL-file that makes the standard scenery correct, so controllers don't see you taxing on the runways on their radar screen for example. Download it from here along with great info about the airport. Make sure to have your charts available! Supporting ATC will most likely be available as well! So come fly your heart out! ESOS_CTR: Håkan Schulz ESSA_APP: Thomas Ljung ESSA_TWR: Candidate ESSA_GND/DEL: BLOCKED Examinator: @Magnus Gustafsson

    Thanks for reminding me about this. Apparently my file has an issue with some trees on taxiways. I received a corrected CVX (terrain) file made by Dmitriy Kozyrev (attached). I haven't had a chance to try it, but please try it out and if it works we can link to it! ESSA_ADEX_DK_CVX_FULL.bgl

    This tutorial will show controllers how to properly set up a tower view with the FSX/Prepar3d multiplayer tower cab and not just a camera angle. The result will be something like this: Picture from ENGM on a slow morning Requirements: FSX Deluxe, FSX steam or Prepar3d Minimum vPilot v2.0.1.2 - http://vpilot.metacraft.com/Download.aspx Minimum Euroscope build version (3.2a(r12)) - http://www.euroscope.hu/installbeta/changes.html AI Model pack (WOAI, UT2, UTL, etc.) Notepad/Notepad++ Setting up your simulator tower view: In your simulator start a multiplayer scenario as Air Traffic Controller, select your airport. (Date, time and weather are irrelevant at this stage) When you have set your preferences, DO NOT start flight/scenario. Select save scenario/flight and name it something smart. i.e. ENGM_TWR, ESSA_TWR. This way you could have multiple views predefined for different airports Exit multiplayer. From “select flight/scenario” screen, select your tower flight, load it and check that your tower cab is positioned at the correct location and altitude. If location and altitude is correct, move on to get viewing, if not continue below. To correct location and altitude go to C:\Users\*username*\Documents\FSX/Prepar3d. Or wherever you have saved your flights/scenarios. Open your ENGM_TWR.fsxml / ENGM_TWR.flt (filetype depends on simulator) or similar in notepad. Search for “Simvars.0”. In this simVars section you’ll find: Latitude= Longitude= Altitude= These are the interesting values. If your lat/lon location is wrong change it with these values. (Get tower position from AIP, google maps etc. Set the altitude to match the tower height. I use Slew to get correct altitude. (Use the same number of digits). If you put your airplane inside the tower you can read of your preferred altitude. I prefer to place my cab on the roof of the modeled tower. This is to prevent looking through the models walls, with the artifacts that could bring. For ENGM I use Altitude= +001000.00 When all data is changed, save file and exit. Setup complete Get viewing Start your simulator, load the previously created tower flight/scenario, set wanted time and weather (or use preferred weather generator). Start Euroscope. The proxy server shouldn’t be a factor for tower view, but if you want multiple instances of ES make sure the proxy is started. Start vPilot in vPilot command line type “.towerview”. vPilot should now show the message “Connected as observer”. This trough Euroscope, and is therefore not a dual connection to VATSIM. That’s it. You should now start seeing planes on your airport and in the skies around Nice to know: In vPilot type “.debug” to get a debugging window open which will show you any error messages. Typically “Model not assigned for ABC123”. In vPilot type “.aircraft” to show a window containing information about all planes loaded in the sim by vPilot. Error message “Model not assigned for ABC123” can mean several things: You do not have any aircraft matching the plane. Solution – install model and livery. At the time there might be a bug/error in Euroscope that prevents the correct packets being sent if the pilot uses FSinn as pilot client. Solution – no solution yet, awaiting Gergely. Model matching in vPilot should be automatic, but if any doubt I recommend “vmrgenerator” to generate a ruleset based on your installed models.

    It's now been a while without any reported issues with the beta plugin. While no news can be good news, I've set up this poll to gather at least some data to support it. Please answer the poll regardless of whether you use the beta or not so I can get an idea of how much it is being used and if there is something that still needs attention. The current development version has very few changes to the latest beta. The settings files can now contain preset window states and positions, and the main settings file can now contain callsign-specific settings (previously limited to the "SettingsLocal" file). The idea behind this change is to have all the settings provided in a controller package in the main settings file, leaving the "SettingsLocal" file for personal settings (such as window preferences). If you don't know if you're using the beta or not, check it from the EuroScope OTHER SET menu -> Plug-ins... -> see the Version number of the TopSky plugin. If it starts with "2.2b", you're using the beta. If there are issues, please bring them to my attention, either here or in the dedicated issues thread on the Finland subforum. If you're not happy to voice your concerns publicly, a private message is fine as well. If there's a specific reason you only occasionally use the beta, or have stopped using it, I'd like to hear it as well, unless it's "I don't want to use beta software". It's a perfectly valid reason, but as it doesn't tell anything about the plugin's readiness for release, I don't need to know it.

    I'm really a fan of this idea as well, not at least considering the new scenery for ESKN but also that there's also scenery available for Västerås (ESOW) and Örebro (ESOE). This does create really good possibilites for VFR and IFR-traffic! Let's make it happen!

    Load the scenario, then change the settings. For weather as long as you are using a weather engine like Active sky or similar this takes control of the weather directly.

    Where is the party tonight? It´s at ENOS! Thursday, the 15th of February, Harald Kvangarsnes will prove that he is worth a C1 rating upgrade. If you´re planning to fly within the ENOS airspace, you're very welcome. Give Harald a challenge by flying in the area around Oslo between 19 and 21z. Norway identifies you, and hopes to see you at the party!

    We may not be quite sure about the weather forecast for this sunday evening, but we are quite sure, that things will get really sweaty for out colleague Ondrej Penicka, as he will be passing his controller practical test at Brno (LKTB). So, let’s give this small city a massive load of traffic and help Ondrej prove that he fully deserves his Tower rating. On Sunday 12th November from 19z you can expect fully staffed LKPR & LKTB. We are looking forward to see you in the skies.
