This past month we have made numerous changes throughout the VA.
The flight scoring processor has been updated to improve compatibility with various X-plane add-ons. There have been a number of updates to VAS-ACARS as well: you can now leave a comment during the complete flight; the comment box when submitting your flight will be automatically populated with this comment. Moreover, there is now a visual and audible warning if VAS-ACARS is no longer receiving data from FSUIPC and local log files and flight data are automatically removed after a set period.
The website has received a redesigned route and profile page based on feedback from the community. The new pages should be more easily viewable and more compact by reducing whitespace. The flight briefing page has received an update as well for giving it a more coherent lay-out. The aircraft substitution matrix has been updated to take the form of a comparison widget, allowing you to compare the bookable aircraft types with the aircraft type you would like to substitute. This widget can be found on the VASystem website.
As you might have noticed, we will also be adding more events to our system. On our homepage you can view the upcoming events. In addition, each event usually has bonuses associated with them, so be sure to check them out!
To conclude this update, you can fly our monthly tour, this time taking us through Central Europe.
After a relatively succesful first month of operation we have changed and added various things both on the back-end of the VA as well as the front end.
Our Flight and Pilot Policy has been updated to both increase realism and to prevent abuse. Please read these carefully as they will be enforced starting February 2nd.
The second change is that we have updated the tour progression system, changing its dependency from the booking to the flown route. This will streamline route updating and should keep tours and tour progression more consistent.
Numerous new tours have been added for you to fly and another Star Alliance partner has been added, Helvetic Airways. Helvetic operates flights solely for Swiss International Airlines and as such is an excellent fit for the VA.
To close off this update the monthly tour is now available to fly, this time taking you throughout the Middle East.
