  1. Gordon, I'm so sorry for the stipulation. However, as the lead administrator at VAE, please allow me to explain; the rule is not only an attempt to keep things at a professional level (and is not meant to belittle your flying experience or professionalism at all) but also to make sure that noone is exposed to content that is of a mature nature. We at VAE cannot control what happens on our servers 24/7 as we have lives too, and the last thing we want is for someone to email us because their child was exposed to suggestive or inappropriate language/content. if you feel very strongly that none of this would bother you (even though our server is very well-behaved and we have no reason to be worried) or your parents, I would be open to making an exception, seeing as you have put the time and effort into posting on here and sending emails to Robert. Email me: evan@virtual-aviation.org and ill see what I can do. Kind regards, Evan Virtual Aviation Experience
  2. The use of TS2 is simply for our communications compatibility. We have a system available to us that will change your channel in our communications TS based upon the radio frequency you have dialed into your Comm1 radio. Much like TSComset except its already built into squawkwin. It is handy, but the developer of the software and I have some co-ordinating to do to get it up and running. He's also working on an integrated comms system. More news on this soon. Evan
  3. I'd like to add something. Andras field is a unique and interesting idea that I firmly believe has the potential to take flight. It just requires user activity. Kasper, I am truly sorry that you are unable to fly online. If there were anything I could do to help, I'd certainly try. I'm doing what I can to get permission from Aerosoft to allow me to advertise on a much broader scale. The unfortunate inconvenience is that we all have real lives, and those definitely take priority over flight sim. That, coupled with time differences and such makes it difficult for Matt to plan events. I even wish I could fly online at the same time as you guys, but I'm on the opposite side of the world. Our team at VAE is staying up until 3-4am every morning after full work/school days just to make sure the server is running, people are getting connected okay, and everyone is enjoying themselves. My tech department made up of Ray, Robert, and Jon (whom not too many of you guys have met) work around the clock because they believe in this. We are all looking for the same thing. Its just tough when we're on different sides of the globe. Bear with me, and I'll do anything that I can to help populate Andras field. We take pride in the fact that Andras Field is hosted on our server, and we will do anything to make it a great experience for everyone that chooses to partake. Andras Field Panel: If you need anything, please feel free to email me @ evan@virtual-aviation.org This also applies to all users. If you have ideas on what we at VAE can do to make Andras more popular, email me and we'll see what we can do. Sincerely, Evan Virtual Aviation Experience Additionally, I have spoken with Ray, and he is going to make an effort to welcome new plot owners to Andras field as well as make them aware of the online community that we are trying to create. This will hopefully get more people interested and "in-the-loop" as far as the Community is concerned.
  4. I'd also like to put in my two cents. David, I'm sorry about your displeasure regarding our server and teamspeak, however I assure you, the teamspeak has not had any downtime, nor has the flight server for over a week now. Our member services department is working around the clock to make sure that the server that hosts both the teamspeak and the flight server is up and running as much as possible. If there is an issue, we act as quickly as technologically possible to restore the server as to not dissappoint. This is why we experienced some down time a few weeks ago. We changed hosting providers because of the unreliable hosts that we were previously with. Again, since, we have had little to no problems with server uptime and we do not anticipate any further major issues in the future. If individual problems arise with a members client software or substitutions, Ray, our Tech director (as well as Andras Online Manager) and Robert, our member services director have built a reputation for assisting people in maximizing their experience here at VAE by working with you to eliminate any problems you, or anyone else, may have. As for the complaints regarding inappropriate callsigns while flying on the server, please do email me the details so we can work to correct this issue at evan@virtual-aviation.org. This vulgar and profane behavior is not allowed on the VAE server and we will take action accordingly. Also, I would invite anyone else with complaints or suggestions to email either myself, Ray (ray@virtual-aviation.org), or Robert (robert@virtual-aviation.org. This will help us to provide a professional server, with a community feel. Best Regards, Evan Virtual Aviation Experience
  5. My concern with the Northeast US is fps. With all of those large cities in the vicinity, would it not be difficult to keep the fps bearable. I'm no fsx graphics expert, but I know when I get near the east coast. Now, I know the Midwest may seem like kind of a barren wasteland, but I assure you it has its upside. First of all, there's nothing but open air. The sunsets are great, the city of Chicago is a major airline hub. Oshkosh is a hop, skip, and a jump away. Not to mention, headed east or west, nothing is too far away. There are lakes, so a seaplane base would be possible. Plenty of open space for housing (That way, everyone can have the opportunity to purchase a plot). The dynamic weather isn't just one thing year round. Like Andras field, it will change. Winters are sometimes harsh, especially in the North. Springs are loaded with rain and changing conditions, which adds definite realism to the experience, as not every day can be perfect VFR. Summers are warm and allow for a lot of thermals, despite the lack of mountains around the midsection (here you go glider fans, if you were feeling left out). There are even a few real-world glider exclusive strips maybe 45 mins from my house (IRL), so gliding is prominent here. Fall is cool, which makes the prop's perform a bit better. That always easy on the virtual wallet when its time to fill up. The Midwest incorporates many different scenic classes (if you will). Wilderness in the North. Open plains and plenty of (air)space in the midsection, and of course, Moutainous terrain further South. I dunno, just my two cents. I'll be happy with whatever we come up with as a good place. It will be at least a little closer to home than Andras. I enjoy the trip to Andras, and love watching it develop and participate. I'm just excited with this possibility.
  6. Jsalva, the instructions were to mail aerosoft about it. Not just go and buy it. Aerosoft tells you how to get it for free once you email them. Evan
  7. Welcome John, Martin, and Manuel. John, now that we are neighbors, when you do move in, lets host a bbq. I'll grill if you supply the pool and refreshments. Better yet? A block party. That'd be fun! Could even do some scenery add on's specifically for the event. With tents and stuff. Kinda like the temporary airshow scenery you see sometimes.
  8. Hey Sam, welcome aboard! This should help you understand how sales work at Andras Field.... http://www.forum.aer...showtopic=36541 Furthermore, my name is Evan, and should you choose to fly online with other Andras members, you will see quite a bit of me...More so if your sleep habits are as AWFUL as mine. I'm the Lead Administrator at Virtual Aviation Experience, and we provide the online component of Andras Field. You can visit us at http://www.virtual-aviation.org to register and have full access to our 24/7 flight server! Again, welcome. I hope to have a seat for you at the next Andras BBQ over at my place....If i can find a date and time I don't have to work IRL. :\ Regards, Evan Virtual Aviation Experience
  9. I think I'll fly something with a little more range and faster than a C172...A Citation, perhaps. But only during regulation-approved hours, of course. I'll also have to find a prop for sale to house at Andras, in the "Driveway", as well. For shorter hops.
  10. I appreciate the warm welcome and look forward to hosting a Fly-In BBQ....that is, once I get there....its a long trip from central Illinois.
