September 10, 2008 On Sunday morning, September 7, the web host had a catastrophic hardware failure that resulted in nearly two full days of downtime. Then, the replacement server also had trouble, so we are now on our third server in under a week. Hopefully this will be our final destination.

Please accept my apologies for any trouble and for lost high scores during this period; I was also unable to check email for the majority of the downtime.

April 6, 2007 Previously, departing aircraft would be ready for flight immediately upon receiving the "T" command. Now, however, they will need some time to turn from the taxiway to the runway, turn on their transponder, etc., so please allow for a few seconds of delay.

Further, a new "H" (hold) command has been implemented to instruct departing planes to hold at the end of the runway and await further commands. Accordingly, you can now issue a "T" command to one aircraft, and once it begins rolling you can have a second aircraft hold behind it, thus eliminating any delay for the second aircraft.

Note that it's not necessary to issue the "H" command before a "T" command; "H" exists only for your convenience in busy situations.

Additionally, you can now force a plane to turn left or right. Whereas before, aircraft would turn in the most efficient manner to reach their destination, you can now say:

AAL1047 C OBK L
AAL1047 C 040 R

etc.

and the aircraft will turn right/left (clockwise/counter-clockwise), regardless of the location of the beacon/fix or the compass direction.

Of course, the L/R suffix can always be omitted and the aircraft will turn as they did before.

February 3, 2007 By popular request, altitude clearances may now be expedited. This will cause the aircraft in question to climb or descend at twice its usual rate. (This does not apply to clearances given to aircraft that are still on the ground.) For example, UAL793 C 14 EX will be understood to mean "climb/descend to 14,000 feet, expedite". Either "X" or "EX" may be used.
