Can someone explain to me whats being removed? I kind of don’t understand it.
I ike this change, but I have my concerns. It’s a great way of bringing together that community aspect of IF even more. However, what if some people still want a “display name” per say, but don’t necessarily want to be on the forum? It seems a bit iffy to just kinda force someone onto the IFC to have that extra little nametag displayed
Our display names. In the future you won’t have a display of (eg. IFC PilotCSG)
Yeah I like having my call sign and a flight number as my display name say DL732
omgggggg. unexpected indeed.
This is very interesting! I am excited to see this implemented!
Will an Infinite Flight subscription be required to create a Forum account now?
I wonder what you will have to do if you are in a VO that requires you to have their name in your display name, what if you are in multiple that requires you have that? ex IPP or IFAE
This will be covered in the release notes.
The ability for you to manually type your display name is being removed. It will be replaced with your IFC name if you choose to link the two.
No, you do not need to.
I’m gonna miss the good ol’ display name, but this is a nice change for sure!
Well done everyone on the IF team for keeping this sim awesome!
Does it mean people will have a button to message the IFATC after he ghosted you (if they connected an account)? Will be so nice to have it tbh
Do the “user12345” Display Names disappear as well?
What if someone doesn’t have an IFC account? How will we see their display name? I have a friend who isn’t on IFC but always has the same display name. How would I recogznize him?
Mixed feelings when I first thought about the change but I‘m sure later on it will be better when we got used to it. Just as the new UI we got with 19.4.
Question, because IFAE and GAF correlate with each other and since GAF is embedded in IFAE can we expect to see IFAE-GAF or just IFAE and GAF separately? This is pertaining to the VO Matter.
I think they’re still tweaking it. All the info you’ll need will come with time
That’s a concern I raised earlier in my comment. Some people want a display name, but don’t necessarily want an IFC account, so it doesn’t feel right kind of forcing them to have an IFC just to get that little name tag
