Unfortunately, with work and other things I won't have a whole lot of time to sit around and throw out ideas for the game we all want to see. So, if it's alright with you lot, I'll just post ideas here when I get them.
Firstly, ATC. It would be cool, though not sure how feasible at present, to have 1 or 2 ATC voices for each country. Now, the US and Canada could share, but England, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Mexico, etc should have ACT voices from those countries. Speaking English, because though ATC does use the native language, English must be used a the request of the pilots. If we could get some actual air traffic controllers to record them, that would be brilliant, but that's just a dream I have that I wouldn't be too terribly concerned if it didn't get realized.
Secondly, please please please please include ARTCCs. This whole flying over vast stretches of the US without any communications with towers is crazy. Centers, which is the colloquial term for the ARTCCs, take care of planes the entire time they're not under an actual airport's control.
Third, ATIS. Automated terminal information service. Y'know, weather and other such important things. It could be triggered, if we wanted, by the letter w like eurofly currently gives us the weather, but I would want it to actually resemble an ATIS transmission, not just a string of text about the weather spoke by jaws/nvda etc. This one actually requires us to make a choice. Human or TTS for the ATIS? TTS would make it easier to actually pull in real data for use in the ATIS reports. Now days, I think most ATIS systems use TTS, but when I first started listening to airband transmissions back in the early 90s, ATIS was still done by a human who had to go in and record the new information every hour.
That's it for now. Maybe more later.
