First of all congrats to your new website/forum. I´m pleased to know your page. In the moment I´m in the progress (better said: was) in changing my entire AI Traffic, for yours. And it´s great, though a lot of work for a student, but it´s worth it Thnx a lot
But I´ve got 2 Issue´s:
1st. I wanted to ask if anyone had the Callsigns for those old airlines, like e.g. NAL, PAA and so on, for Edit Voice Pack. If yes could you send it to me or even better publish them on the Web-site?? It´s not so nice to not hear: "...103, you are cleared to land." but would be more real like this: "Clipper103, you are cleared to land". I hope you understand and don´t get mad at me.
2nd. I reworked my DC-10 Texture´s for the NAL Pack, released earlier this year. it was an issue with the Font and with the partly grey belly.

Those callsigns are available via a normal update of EditVoicePack - I've had them since FS 2002. What you have to do to hear them, however is edit the atc_airline= section to reflect the airline. This is straight from the aircraft.cfgs that I know work:
I've done my own EditVoicePack mods for Clear Lake City, Amon Carter, and Ocean Station November to know it works, as long as you are specific - I hear Pan Am and National calls just as they should be, so check the aircraft.cfgs and make sure they match up with how the arlines are listed in the voice pack. The reason we don't offer them on the site, BTW, is due to copyright issues. I will offer up mods we have made, but not those done outside RAI - the creator of EditVoicePack does a good job updating and maintaining the mods that are out there - you should have no problems with most older callsigns like Pan Am or National by updating the program and assigning the callsigns in the aircraft.cfg files. I will be offering a few files - like Northeast (UK), which was "Norjet" and hasn't appeared yet in an EVP update, but I'll also be offering it to them for inclusion in their updates.
If you have edit voicepack installed then you should have all of those. Make sure that you do an update and then update your FS voice files.
For your info:-
TWA = T.W.A National Airlines = National Pan Am = Clipper Eastern = Eastern Western = Western Air Florida = Palm World = World Peoplexpress = Peoplexpress (even though I remember them just using People!).
As I said I'm sure that these are part of Edit Voicepack.
I have had problems in the past with mainly the ATC not using the call sign but the AI plane does. This was due to some sort of corruption of the voice pack files. I never sussed out what it was but by using the instructions with EVP I deleted the old files and installed the originals from the CD and then updated it with EVP. This cured my problem but Yours may not be the same. If its certain airlines that are missing, post a list and I'll see if I have them or can make them for you.
I have some more retro one to make when I get around to using the Sim again anyway. Tee Air is one of them!!

chasensfo: People usually reach out to me when they paint late 90s fleets and ask about flightplans

FSX Retro Flyer: Here are my huge and humble thanks to Michael Pearson for creating these magnificent paints for the post-CAAC Chinese airlines!

FSX Retro Flyer: The special livery of the 747-100 of Japan Asia has been painted by Michael Pearson some time ago. The repaint can be found on AVSIM here: faib_747-100_jaa.zip

FSX Retro Flyer: Satisfying to see Iberia package being released with all their repaints available! Also, can't wait for SAS and Aerolíneas Argentinas in a near future!

chasensfo: SAS yes but Aerolineas not sure, maybe some other Argentine carriers. Mostly European and US carriers for now unless others make surprises
Jun 30, 2021 10:16:05 GMT -5
chasensfo: China too of course

theflyingmobian: Looking forward to filling up Australia and New Zealand with those Chinese, US and European carriers too.

theflyingmobian: I think at this point the Qantas VH-OJC Formula 1 747 is the only remaining 747 yet to be painted in AI, but I don't think it has plans yet as that was active in 2000 to 2002.

jetstar: G-AWNA was painted up in incorrect BOAC colours when it was WFU, It was broken up in those colours in 1999. If you look closely, you can see the overpainted white where the BA titles were, and the tail is showing the speed stripe underneath the.. see part2

jetstar: Thin paint on the tail. They never did anything with the lower blue though. It was just homage to BOAC's original 747-136 when it was retired. Its a pity is was not preserved. Then again, BA would not pay to upkeep the 707 at Cosford, which was scrapped.
