I am back with another feature request! Today, I will be requesting to have commands for ATC to direct/reroute us to different waypoint/VORs!
This is a very common and useful command in real life and would bring IF a lot more realism and take some pressure off ATC.
As an example, this is what the direct command sound in real life:
“Speedbird 6MA proceed direct IGAMA, descend and maintain 11000ft.”
The reroute command would sound like this:
“Speedbird 6MA descend/climb via WAYMA, DISCO, DELTA”
Why do we need this?
This would bring another big drop of realism to ATC in IF, and also improve the usage of waypoints/VORs at airports, especially where arrival procedures can’t be found. This would be easier than assigning heading as you can reroute the aircraft wherever you want as you wish in only one go.
How could it work?
I am not a coding expert or anything but maybe on the commands bit there would be a “re-route” and “proceed direct” under the “Vectors” tab. Maybe if you clicked on either one, descend/climb will appear and you could choose either one, then the colour of all the waypoints/VORs would change and you would click on the one(s) you want the aircraft to head to. There would be a “Done” command too. The command will sound exactly like above.
Please show support and vote if you would like to see this in IF!
- I would love to see this!
- Ummmmm… Let me think.
- Very unnecesarry.
