So doing some ATC on the game I am mainly on ground… So I’ve been using a new method to give clearance to aircraft which keeps the aircraft running more smoothly, ground traffic isn’t all over the place and etc. While trying this little experiment majority of players caught on real quick and actually worked pretty well and I think it would help out whoever is controller at the time too ALOT! To others that I have attempted this on I confused the living life out of them.
NOW before I continue I’m no moderator or anyone special to infinite fight or dev I’m not saying go do this or obey it or else I don’t have that power but just another player sharing some thoughts and seeing what you guys think of it.
So the method that I have started using trying to keep things on the realistic side of ATC communication and flying is going to need a little help from you guys as well in case your part of that other top percent that sees me controlling and is like “what is going on”. And it’s super easy all you have to do is check your ATC log and don’t click show all but rather keep the box unchecked and it would show the directions you got specifically for you. Why would you need to check that box? Well here is where the method that I’ve been doing comes in.
After you have pushed back you ask the controller for clearance to taxi to runway 24R for example, and you are parked parallel to 24L with oncoming traffic taking off and landing on 24L. So instead of me responding Aircraft X taxi to runway 24R contact tower when ready (Which almost 70 percent of all aircraft switch to tower frequency right away, autmatically assume they can cross 24L to get to 24R and ask for takeoff clearance 3 minutes before they even reach the runway) Ive been sending messages like Aircraft X Holdshort runway 24L Aircraft X give way to aircraft exiting the runway, Aircraft X Cross 24L Aircraft X Holdshort Runway 24R all in one go. Why do you need to check the log if you get a message like that and what do those messages even mean?
Well you would need to check the log because unfortunately the way the ATC communication is now you can’t send multiple directions in one go but it would be all separately. and checking the log would makes things easier for you because you can see what they all were because it only shows messages intended for you (if you don’t have show all box checked). Now for others that don’t know what that message means it basically means I gave you clearance to taxi to requested runway 24R but before you get there your going to Holdshort 24L giveaway to any traffic on the runway cross runway 24L when clear Holdshort 24R contact tower.
Like I said I’ve tried this and worked pretty well for attempting it a couple of times but what do you guys think? To much?
