Option to turn off flight plan copying

This is a major thing that might work. Recently people have been getting upset at the ammount of people going the same routes so. There should be a way to turn of flight plan copying on your flight plan. But if you copied someone else’s you can’t turn it off. But you could also make it so only sertan people can copy your flight plan.

Thanks for reading I realy want this added.

  • Yes I would like the option to turn it off
  • Nah what’s the point
  • No idea mate

I’m 50/50 for this. If someone copies your flight plan, then technically you should be happy because the only reason they’d copy it, is if it’s good. But as what @IceBlue said…

I think something good when you get a companion to flying with same rout . my opinion

Then it would be harder for group flights. Please make sure it’s only an option so some of us can keep it on.

Out of curiosity, what’s happened to you guys in IF to prompt the idea? Trolls?

I feel like this isn’t necessary.

I just want to bring this back up as I accidentally made another thread on this topic

This is useless. People copying a flight plan has no real impact on one’s own flight (except that the arrival airfield is a little more clustered).

The option to turn it off is completely useless. The people that are currently copying flight plans are going to continue doing that. Then the people that currently don’t copy others’ flight plans will use the feature and turn the function off. In the end, it won’t make a bit of difference because people will continue what they were previously doing. Plus, you can’t just make a button go away like that. It’s either there or it isn’t.

no point, fly expert if it’s such an issue that people are crashing into each other.

Maybe you could only use it in unpopulated regions or on Expert?

Check the flight plans from airport to airport on FlightAware. They’re established flight plans. Who gets angry because someone flies the same route?
