I think I like the new ATC interface. The only thing I don’t like it how it stops other transmissions and then plays yours. I think it would be better to play yours after the transmission is done (hopefully that made sense).
I absolutely love all the new liverys! FDS did an amazing job on them. I also love the new ATC interface and all the other tiny features that add that extra realistic and/or simpler aspect to the simulator.
The only con I have is that there is no Qantas logo on the belly of the 737. I completely understand why they couldn’t add that and understand that they will (probably) add if FDS does a 737 rework.
I love as a pilot the new hold and reply. Also, the voices are pretty amusing, especially the women smoker voice, and I like the fact that other ATC transmissions cut off when I am receiving an instruction or when I am sending one.
ATIS is a game changer but my favorite new thing is the callsigns on the map and the orange blinking when they are sending a transmission. If you want to learn from the IFATC like I try to do when I remain in the pattern, then the orange blinking thing is welcomed!
I haven’t have time to try, but after updating the app and looking into the aircraft list, I did see that AC/C130 also required to be updated individually, and also the DC’s and MD’s. I wonder what have changed from those aircrafts.
I think it is awesome to see people excited for non-plane features.
Don’t get me wrong, new planes are cool and all, but I think people overlook the simpler things that bring just as much if not more value to the the pilot experience. Data on tags, flashing icons, log book, quick replies, etc.
Positives: ATC is awesome! I’ll usually only control for an hour or so at a time and last night I controlled for almost 3 hours at once. Haven’t had a chance to fly yet but will certainly be trying that today. I also love the new OTA update feature so that FDS can push certain updates to us without updating the app. Hopefully AIRAC cycles are a part of that…
On my phone it seems like I am only stuck with one kind if vice pack even if I downloaded like 5 different voice pack. I even put English (US) on default. I only have a female voice playing ( I think it’s Indian accent) Any ideas how to make it right. ? Device is Razer phone Android 7.1.1
