View Full Version : ATC Question

How do i get the ATC to call my Airline by it's correct name instead of that awful "Experimental" callsign? An example of this is the American Eagle ATR package. How can i get this to be called "American"

Im in school now so i cant check but i think you go to the select aircraft menu, and click on 'change ATC callsign' and theres a list of airline callsigns that the FS2k2 ATC will support.
Hope this helps, if it doesnt, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org

Either that or alter the atc_airline in the cfg file and it will be permanent.

"Either that or alter the atc_airline in the cfg file and it will be permanent."
Spockdude, the above staement is not entirely correct. It can be easily changed to properly reflect the aircraft.
OCkay here goes In the aircraft config there is a line that say "atc_airline=". simply type American.
For it to refer to me model and type, in the "General" section of the aircraft config file you need to type this
atc_type=(manufacture name here)
If however you have a plane that FS2002 has no clue about built into the USEngllishBig.gvp file you can change this.
Download the Voicepak SDK released by Microsoft and also download gvpdecompile aailable here and avsim.
Its very easy to use. You may find that a particular airline name , model or manufacture is not included in the decompiled wav files. THats easy to remedy. If you have an audio edit software then you can "splice to words together to create new ones. For example, Ethiopina and Austrailian.
You may have noticed that FS2002 cant use the callsign "southwest" for southwest airlines. Thats easy.
After you decompile all the wavs for all 10 pilots, look for "southwest.wav" each of them. Copy those files into a severate set of folders from
Now rename that thouse copied southwest wavs to "AIRLINE_SOUTHWEST.WAV"
Next in the phrases,txt file you created during decompile. looke for a line that says "Airline Callsign". Go to the alphabetically logical place, copy and paste that line and just replace the airline names with the approriate one and also rename the wav file entry. The txt file is in Unicode format so you will need wordpad for this. Not notepad.
Similarly, this can be done to "activate or create hiddine or mising aicraft model and type wav files.
While your at it. The pilot be folder has several airline callsigns saved with the wrong file name.
This is the FAA's listing of all the worlds airlines and thier respective callsigns. As they do not always use the airline name. Example. COMAIR operates some DELTA Express routes. So they use COMAIR. Still others use off the wall names like Cactus and orange.
