Flight Sim ATC Callsigns

Sun Apr 30, 2006 11:12 pm

Anyone know where I can get hold of the 'Thomson' callsign for Thomsonfly, can't find it anywhere.

Thanks,
Mark

Are you using EditVoicePak? It should be added if you are, I have it in my callsign database.

Have you run the update feature of EditVoicePak? If not, try running the update and let it install the changes and then save it.

I've updated it, but THOMSON is still not showing in the list of callsigns. I dunno what i'm doing wrong!

Look in your aircraft folder...there should be a file called "airlines.cfg". At "Thomson" to the list, save it, and see if it works.

That won't do anything. But with the latest updates you should have it included...

Perhaps he should update his FS voicepack, so it includes the Thomson callsign. Just search for the callsign, make sure the checkbox next to it is checked and the checkbox not dark, update the airlines.cfg and then update the voicepack. After that, check in the respective aircraft.cfg that the ATC airline line has the callsign enabled, the start FS and go fly.  Wink

Let's not forget he also needs to compile the updated voicepack, otherwise it won't show up in FS.

OK, gonna try and sort this next time I have some free time. So what should I be doing. I've updated it before and imported various other callsigns which have worked but for some reason I can't get Thomson in there.

Thanks for your help guys,

That's what I meant with update the voicepack.  Wink

Finally got this sorted, thanks for the help guys. Only thing which is confusing me a bit is ATC will say the callsign before the flight number, but on the text it doesn't have 'Thomson', only the flight number. Not a big deal but I dunno why it's like that.
