IF needs to take more action!

IF needs to take more action towards people who do not follow ATC instructions on the ATC Playground. This is probably the 20th time I had someone not following ATC instructions, and break rules. Today I was controlling at KNUC and I had someone who landed, back taxi onto runway 06. Then he taxied at 1-5kts on the runway towards 24. I had more than three aircrafts ✈ ready to takeoff, and about four aircrafts ✈ landing. Once he got to the other side of the runway he stopped and just sat there blocking traffic. This is getting quite annoying to have to deal with people who don’t follow the rules of the game. Not only is it annoying, but it is starting to ruin the fun of the game. I recommend IF devs to start paying more attention and taking further action to those who don’t follow game rules.

If you three planes that where waiting had all " reported user " then he would have been ghosted!

Agree very frustrating.

Yes, I wished they would of reported that person. But most people who play IF don’t know about the report feature.

I agree because when you try and practice for advanced atc it’s nearly impossible because of people not following instructions!

It’s all well and good saying that action must be taken, but what kind of action do you recommend?

Infinite Flight offers the Advanced Server for this very reason :)

I recommend action such as banning. To be ban for a certain amount of days after breaking the rules a few times. Ex. 1st time - Banned for two days, 2nd - Banned for a week or two, 3rd - Ban permanently

Your right, but we also have a free flight server for people who want to play around. Isn’t the ATC Playground for practice and training? And im sure you must follow rules on that server too. My opinion is if you want to screw around, go to the free flight server. And don’t ruin for others by going onto a different server and to disobey rules.

I fly on advanced but the issue with it is there’s only atc at certain times and it’s usually when I’m asleep :(

Banning for periods of time has been discussed, and is being implemented as part of the new grading system for the advanced server.

The playground server is what it is - a playground. It’s designed to be the entry stage for all types of pilots. The only thing you can really do now is Report someone if they’re not flying correctly :)

Ah, that’s nice. I might just move to the Advanced Server then.

@carmalonso. Max Sez… “Return to Parking” on the PG. No harm, No faul!

Its called the playground server for a reason - In a real life playground not everyone plays by the same rules as everyone else in the playground. The IF playground is no different :p

Was those four aircraft landing in this order was first A320, A380, A318, and F-18.
I’m asking because I was the A318 being escorted and I was third for landing in KNUC.

You’re not giving a true comparison between IF and FSX. They are two completely different platforms. Refunds are not given just for lack of interest or because someone likes one sim better than another.

The Playground Server is exactly as what it’s called. It’s purpose is to familiarize both pilots and controllers alike with aspects of ATC and the commands. The Advanced Server is more geared to a more professional and respectful environment. With the new grading system, the Advanced Server has become a much more available and and enjoyable server to fly on along with professional and knowledgeable controllers. The Playground Server is fulfilling its purpose.

Maybe there should be an automatic ghosting system in game. Or you should implment some type device that idk reports every thing you do or something like that

I think the point of the playground is to allow users to make mistakes, but maybe not intentionally disregard others. Unfortunately I don’t really see a solution to this since most people who care about a more realistic experience will just go on the advanced server anyway.
