I tried to link with P3D several times, with no success...if someone has a way to do it, please share.

I'm using RC4.3 in P3D 4.5 without any trouble at all. Just be sure to have the latest FSUIPC installed in P3D 4.5, as RC will not work without FSUIPC. Also, its best to rebuild the database with the latest version of MakeRunways.

I'd like to echo what others in this thread have said about the default ATC. The most important thing for me would be to simply fix the existing bugs:

1. Inaccurate vectoring to runway, i.e. the controller instructs the pilot to make frequent unnecessary heading changes before arriving at the final approach fix.
2. The controllers wait too late to provide altitude clearances, i.e. further altitude clearances aren't given until within 300 ft of the previous cleared altitude. When you're climbing at 2000 ft per minute this results in the aircraft pitching down before you're able to increase the altitude setting after getting clearance, and then a pitch back up when climbing resumes. If you set the altitude higher to avoid the pitch down, then if you don't receive ATC altitude instructions before arriving 300 ft above the previous cleared altitude then ATC will forever instruct you to descend to the previous cleared altitude.

Now for my wish list:
1. Ability to update the navigation database.
2. Ability for ATC to utilize SIDs and STARS.
3. Add pushback request to ground control.
4. Have ATC manage arrival traffic, e.g. by issuing speeds commands and holds, in order to avoid landing runway conflicts and frequent go-arounds.
5. Add transition altitudes to the built-in navigation database and make ATC utilize them.

Thanks very much for your consideration.

PF3 is an alternative like so many others but we are talking default here. Its the only option that works fully with AI. As for PF3 I have to say its one of the weaker offerings. Too scripted for my taste and what good is an ATC systems that only communicate with you and not the surrounding aircraft. That kind of defeats the fundamental purpose of ATC in the first place šŸ˜€
Hi mikced,

I regularly hear instructions to other pilots on P3D, so it does interact with other aircraft.
