Global Session

Postby Peter » Mon Jan 07, 2019 8:41 pm

A quick heads up about a new feature I'll be trying out in version 1.4.21 (not 1.4.20!). From this version you'll be able to choose to join a single global session. All users joining the global session should be able to see each other. The feature is additional to the existing way that JoinFS works so things can still function as normal if you wish. On the main JoinFS window there will be a tick box for the global session. When this is enabled JoinFS will automatically connect to the global session by default. To return to normal usage just untick the box.

In order to function correctly it relies on at least one public hub to be enabled for the global session. As long as at least one hub has the option ticked then this feature should work as intended.

It's a little bit experimental but may become a preferred way for people to connect to a larger network of users and aircraft, making JoinFS much more like Vatsim and IVAO, especially when used in combination with ATC Roo's voice application.

No pressure then... :shock:

I like this idea a lot and think it'll be great to fly with people you otherwise wouldn't.

What a great idea!!
I will talk to our team about this, but I know them pretty well, by now, betcha they will all over it like a bag of fleas.

We often host people in our hub, and thats a good thing, they may be a gazillion miles away, but we dont care, it just means more people flying.
