Command Chaining -- Semi-final Proposal by jlink to /forum/atc-sim

Alright! Can't wait to try it out too! When you have time, please consider that Hold command (HL/HR)... I guess it's going to be very useful, at least for me. ;)

My questions are:

  • Can we use a heading instead of a waypoint? FlightID C ABCDE 090 3 S 180
  • Can we use the expedite command (X) normally after the assigned altitude? FlightID C ABCDE FGHIJ 3 X S 180
  • If I want the aircraft to descend to 2,000 feet after FGHIJ, I have to wait until it reaches FGHIJ to give the command?

I'll go further and say FlightID HL/HR ABCDE, for hold turning left/right. Take a look at my post "Bug fixed where aircraft would circle waypoints and navaids after passing them"... I gave my sugestion for a Hold command there.

No problem! And yes, it was a very usefull feature! :-) I guess the hold command is the best solution for everybody. I've been thinking about how can this hold command work. My sugestion is something like FlightID HL (for hold turning left) and FlightID HR (for hold turning right). If you use just this command, the aircraft will hold at the current position, and will stay holding until you give any further instructions, like FlightID C ABCDE or FlightID C 130. We could send the aircraft to hold at a specific waypoint/navaid with this command: FlightID HL/HR ABCDE (or FlightID C ABCDE HL/HR). The aircraft will fly to ABCDE and hold there until any further instructions too. Is it possible to make a real holding, instead of just circling the fix? I mean... If you use the FlightID HL command the aircraft will turn left 180 degrees, fly this reciprocal heading for some seconds (we don't need to respect 1 minute here) and then turn left another 180 degrees, returning to the original inbound leg heading. Hope I could help! Thank you!

That's a good question! My humble opinion is:

  • If you want the aircraft to reduce the speed immediately after the command is given, it would be like: FlightID S 180 C ABCDE C FGHIJ (the plane would reduce speed, fly to ABCDE then FGHIJ)

  • If you want the aircraft to reduce speed after reaching ABCDE: FlightID C ABCDE S 180 C FGHIJ (the plane would fly to ABCDE, then reduce speed while turning to FGHIJ)

  • If you want the aircraft to reduce speed after FGHIJ: FlightID C ABCDE C FGHIJ S 180 (the plane would fly to ABCDE, then to FGHIJ and after passing FGHIJ reduce to 180 kt)

The idea is if you put the speed before the waypoints, the aircraft reduces speed immediately. And after a specific waypoint, the aircraft will reduce speed after that waypoint.

I don't know how difficult it is, nor if it's possible, but we could extend that.

FlightID S 220 C ABCDE S 200 C FGHIJ S 180 (the plane would reduce speed to 220 kt and fly to ABCDE immediately after the command, then reduce to 200 kt after ABCDE then reduce to 180 kt after FGHIJ)

We could also use its variations:

FlightID C ABCDE S 200 C FGHIJ S 180 FlightID S 220 C ABCDE C FGHIJ S 180 FlightID S 220 C ABCDE S 200 C FGHIJ

Best regards from a fan of ATC-SIM! Thank you for your work! ;)
