  1. [WCATC NOTAM] Homepage Update

    This has been fixed. Thank you all for your patience during this update.
  2. Fellow community members; I just wanted to start by saying that it has been a busy time this past summer. Now that things are moving into fall...:( we are hopefully going to be able to ramp up the activity at WestCoastATC. We are looking for people to get involved from all aspects. We need controllers, developers, customer service reps, and just general members that as usual have great ideas. If you have an idea or are interested in helping out our community please feel free to either email me or om me via these forums. As always we appreciate all the members that fly on WestCoastATC and are a part of our wonderful community! Thanks...
  3. [WCATC NOTAM] Homepage Update

    WestCoastATC Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) Issued by John Bratcher (Executive Director), 27Aug09 This is to notify all members that we are aware of the month not updating on the homepage and a solution is being worked on. We thank all our members for their patience during this time. Thanks...
  4. From the staff at WestCoastATC we would like to wish all our members in our community Happy Independence Day. This is a very special day in the US and the world. This day represents the day that democracy won! We are free and as a veteran I want to thank all our armed forces for doing what you do! I know that these are trying times for us all and with that I refer back to a quote that one of our country's great leaders once said: There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America. ~William J. Clinton As I sit here and work in front of a scope watching/controlling military fly-bys and general aviation pilots fly in and around our area I am reminded how great it is to be free and how some countries can not enjoy an independence day as we do in the great USA. God Bless the USA and everyone else too!!!! BR

  13. Server Most Used

    Let us at WestCoastATC know which server you use most!
  14. Area flown most?

    Fellow Members, What area do you like to fly most?
  15. Do you need this? If you want to connect your FSX to an FSHost session, you need this. If you're using FS2002 or FS2004, it can already connect to FSHost and you don't need this. If you're only hosting with FSHost, it already supports FSX and you don't need this. What's new in 1.1: Fixed multiplayer connect window sometimes not appearing correctly. Fixed chat window sometimes not appearing correctly. To-Do list: Fix jittery movement of remote planes. When flying in close formation with another aircraft, the other aircraft jumps around in the sky. Support full-screen mode. At the moment, you need to have FSX in "windowed" mode in order to see the various popup windows from FSHostClient (chat, multiplayer connect, etc.). You can maximize the FSX window by clicking the middle button up in the right corner, but be sure the "Full Screen" option under the View menu is not checked. (press the Alt key if you don't see the menu bar in FSX). Translate the program. I hope to have FSHostClient available in multiple languages in the future. If you're interested in translating messages from English to another language, please let me know. Things not currently supported by FSX: (These are things that FSX doesn't currently allow me to set, but hopefully will be updated by Microsoft in the future) Time and date from FSHost. At the moment, FSX does not change when these are sent by FSHost. Moving rudder. At the moment this is not visible on remote planes from within FSX. Propellers, rotor blades, and doors 2 & 3. At the moment, airplane propellers always appear to be turning and helicopter rotor blades always appear to be stopped. Also, when door number 1 (or the canopy) on an FSX plane is opened or closed it's visible to other FSX players, but doors 2 and 3 are not. Helicopter player names. At the moment, helicopters are visible but without the player names over the top of them, or sometimes with the default FSX tail number instead of the actual player name. Installation: Extract all files in the downloaded zip file to any directory. (For example: "C: \ Program Files\FSHostClient" would be fine) Run the program (FSHostClient.exe) from the directory you extracted the files to. Make sure FSX is in "windowed" mode, not "Full Screen". At the moment, you need to have FSX in "windowed" mode in order to see the various popup windows from FSHostClient (chat, multiplayer connect, etc.). You can maximize the FSX window by clicking the middle button up in the right corner, but be sure the "Full Screen" option under the View menu is not checked. (press the Alt key if you don't see the menu bar in FSX). Disable local AI traffic in FSX. (Options / Settings / Display / Traffic tab, set "Airline" and "General Aviation" traffic to zero) Turn on player names over their aircraft. To do this in FSX, click the Options menu, select Settings, then Display, then click the Traffic tab. You can turn information on and off in the "Aircraft labels" section on the right. Be sure to turn on "Tail number", in order to see the other players' names. Connect FSX to an FSHost server. There are two ways to do this. In FSX, start a flight so you're in a plane, then click the Add-ons menu, select FSHostClient, and then "Multiplayer Connect". Or if you want to connect before starting a flight, use the FSHostClient window and click the Multiplayer menu, and select "Connect to session" (or just click Ctrl-M). To disconnect from within FSX, click the Add-ons menu, select FSHostClient, and then "Multiplayer Disconnect". Or in FSHostClient, click the Multiplayer menu and select "Disconnect from session" (or just click Ctrl-D). Works with existing FSHost servers, no upgrade is currently required for FSHost, although a new FSHost will be available later to take advantage of new features in FSX and FSHostClient.
