Call signs and tail numbers


Recommended Posts

I run a group using standard fsx multiplay sessions.

A number of us have just discovered how great fs commander is as a tool for giving taxi way instructions to traffic when doing ATC.

One problem though, the tags on the aircraft do not follow any particular rules so sometimes its impossible to work out who is who.

Can I request that we have an option to display tags based on the same rules as fsx atc?

i.e. If Airline choosen then

display first 3 characters + flight number

elseif tail number entered

display tail number


display playername

Otherwise loving your work.

Hi Dave,

I guess you are referring to the real-time aircraft, since the static aircraft are only relevant for IVAO and VATSIM.

The tags that are displayed are being read from fsuipc.dll; therefore we have no possibility of making any choices of our own. However, fsuip provides a (limited) number of option for the display of the tags. In FS open the fsuipc menu and choose "miscellaneous". There you find the option "set TCAS ID string from". Choose an appropriate entry from there.
