Well - I guess this is not the right forum to discuss these issues - pls have a look on the just created viewtopic.php?f=10&t=13009 .

Let me just give a short "my view", so these issues do not stay open for all times - and it may be of interest to others too:

Please do not forget: This was not a planned event - it just happened to be! And while we ATCs still tried to discus how to handle that - we were overtaken (at least me). Those tow mishaps (see Trennor and Icecode) just happened in a rather critical time-frame - i have no idea who looked on MPmap (or on the newly available MAP) at that time:
- there were 8 targets in the EDDF area, 4 on Final/Localizer, 2 in pattern, 2 approaching
-- 3 of those had big problems reacting in a normal time-frame and/or even holding altitude, heading and speed
-- 1 even accelerated on Final from 220 kn up to 350, overtaking others on final (1 reason for GoAround)
-- 2 were on GoAround
- MPchat was terrible overloaded, I am not sure if anybody did read all messages - I could NOT (sorry - but dear pilots: ATC has to read them all and has to respond to many - while pilots can concentrate just on a few dedicated ones!). I am sure I missed a few in that critical time-frame - especially: All were on MPchat!! - on FGCOM that would not have been a problem!

- special to Icecode: Not sure if I actually overlooked (or maybe you did not see on screen) - anyhow: You did right Going Around! And for sure you got vectors from me for that. I have no idea why you suddenly decided to turn in to final - while still some others were on final - i guess to that time you were #4! By the way: To that same time also one other plane, also being on GoArround) decided to do the same strange thing - and even did not respond to my very nicely questions etc.. And you decided to start discussing instead of following advise to get you out of a crash-situation - well you know me since a long time! I hope we still are friends - sorry that you did not get the trophy to be first - better luck next time!

- special to Trennorr: I am not sure, but if I remember correct you were the one who was lined up for rw 25R (in the middest of 2 other planes on final). Then you suddenly turned left going into direction of 25L, and while I was typing to warn you - you suddenly decided to turn back right - and then ended your flight just prior TouchDown on the "Center Taxiway" between those 2 runways. I am really sorry I had no time to film that !!

- One word to IFR/VFR: I try to be open for all visitors, independent of skills - as long as they can handle their plane and communicate with ATC. And for sure the skills are drastically different! So I see IFR/VFR in a very basic way:
- IFR I can direct to a VOR and get them from there onto ILS
- VFR I have to vector all the time and even advise on speed and altitude
Thats it -- I guess for anything else you need a closed event with minimum skills!

So: I liked it - but believe me: The last 1h was pure stress - that made me sleep well afterward.
I hope we all see us again soon

Hi guys, I'm looking to provide tower ATC at either EGLL (London Heathrow) or EGKK (London Gatwick). I will be online pretty much all week from around 18:30 UTC, I know there's already a very good controller at EGKK and I've seen that noone ever controls EGLL so I thought there would be good provided people would like a controller there?

Thanks guys :D

<rant> EGKK is too overdeveloped for some systems. Too many aircraft, too much scenery. If I fly there with this combination which posts like this attract, my system bogs down. Because, everyone wants to fly an airliner into there. Airbuses, Boeing 777s, 789s, 748s. There's TOO much of a good thing at these events. The same is starting to happen at other large, international FG airports too. I tried it last week with another controller at EGKK. My FG got so jerky, so stalled out, I was forced off multiplay. Tried it at EGLL, too - same effect.

My feeling is, if controllers are wanting to provide controlling experience for pilots, it would be better for everyone involved if they wouldn't pick such graphics-intensive airports, and limit the aircraft to those which don't need over a gigabyte of memory (and perhaps I'm exaggerating but I'm trying to make a point here) all by themselves. Not everyone has a super-deluxe gaming system with which to fly. Not everyone has 10 Gig of on-board memory. Not everyone has the latest video card: please try and consider those of us who don't have the financial resources to maintain top-of-line systems to be able to participate in events like this. Please! Downgrade the airports. Pick less-intensive aircraft to fly into those airports and allow MORE of us to be able to participate. </end of rant>

I would think it would be a big pity to just throw away all the nice work that people did on their private time in order to improve the appearance of FlightGear! I would rather suggest to use one of the thousands of airports available - that do not have any buildings etc. People that have problems with their PC could gather there - IF THAT REALLY IS NEEDED!

Did you try to use the the option "--prop:/sim/frame-rate-throttle-hz=5" ? That is usually set rather high and thus cause a lot of not NEEDED work. Throttling it to "10" is still a comfortable flying - even "5" is a value you can fly with.

Also you may not need all the fantasti work of the new "Rembrandt", reduce it in the FGFS-Menu "View --> Rendering options".

For sure I would rather reduce the brilliant "View options" and keep the scenery!

Please! Downgrade the airports

Trennor, it's dead simple to do this yourself. And no one knows better what your hardware can deliver than you. Just find the .stg file of the crowded airport and uncomment as many models as you wish. Check the wiki on how to do this.

To all those who populate airports with models: You're doing a great job, keep it up!
OSM buildings for LOWI, EDDC
Custom scenery for VHXX YMML
Edit .stg via the FG Object Placement Tool

I would expect: If people try to help, that at least you test, comment, and give a feedback to their suggestions - instead of the above stupidity!
Or shall I now comment: Sorry for having answered - will never do it again?
