I definitely would support a form or process flow for inquiring about ghosting as @Cessna_Citation_X suggested. I have been playing the game sporadically over the last year when time permits. Definitely prefer to fly the expert server for the ‘classic reason’ that I know what I am doing and hate it when random aircraft drive right through you on the taxi way :) .
I experienced a bug in the game today, where I was unable to respond to controller. As I was entering runway, I received the On-Guard Message from tower, but the app only showed Unicom available. I understand why ATC ghosted me, being an aircraft on the runway, but what was happening on my side was me trying to find out why app wouldn’t let me see/select tower frequency. Reported this bug via feedback form on the Flying Dev website.
I fully respect this forum and happy that it pushes the App Development in the right direction, but I have had no account since most of my free & limited IF time has gone into playing the game. I wanted to see if there was any quick way to have ghosting reviewed so I can go back to playing on Advanced Server today.
So I am here! Saw that I should PM a ATC Moderator, ::creates account::.
Then thought@joe looks like a good person to message ::spends 10 minutes trying to find out how to PM:: ::searches for how to PM:: ::reads about trust levels:: ::spends about 20mins 100 reading posts but notices still can’t PM::
So in short, for us Non-Community People / Non Forumers, would be nice to streamline a way to chat about ghostings, so we can continue to spend our Sunday afternoons flying the lovely Expert Server skies before a long week of work.
Thanks again to all the people on this thread that make IF and IFATC great!
If you want the juicy details of the ghosting, my call sign was ‘JAL 1 19’, flying a 787-9, and I was at PHTO on Sunday 10/2 around 2:30pm EDT. I think the controller might have been Nayeem, but wasn’t able to capture screen shot in time!
