We are looking to host a cross community Flights events with all platforms and JoinFS is a amazing place to have them look at the one we had before Xmas with ATC_Roo it was awesome. Myself Pizza and Ben from ATC Seattle are in the beginning stages of setting another one soon. regarding voice yes it would be great but for now, maybe some kind of chat box going. Thanks for all your hard work


Yes, last year's event was reasonably successful. The current version of JoinFS is significantly better than that one which, at the time, was still in the experimental stages. Stability is much better now, as is the model matching so it should cope well. I think we got around 50-70 aircraft at the peak last time. I recall that the initial hop everyone did that evening was popular but then a lot of people left after that, probably because it was getting late by then so it may need some careful planning.

A chat system would be ideal for the event, however, I doubt it will implemented in time, but I do expect one to be in place for next year's event. :)

Welcome Back Peter!

Yes, Pizza (from EasternHops) and I have been in touch regarding some cross community events.

We also had success at the 5th Annual Flight Simulation Conference in Connecticut (U.S.) this past June. We were able to have Seattle Virtual ATC (which I run) provide air traffic control service along with pilots from the Eastern Hops community by broadcasting aircraft on the EasternHops FSX server to the Seattle vATC JFS Hub. This allowed both communities to prosper during the two day real world event, all thanks to you Peter!

Thank you for your time and development. I'm very excited to see what's in store with future updates!

Hi Peter

Good to see you are back.
I was flying flying with the 91st Bombardment Group last weekend and one of the guys there said: you can't pay me to go back to FSX multiplayer.
I agree!
Cheers
