Receiving ATIS updates in vPilot
« on: March 11, 2022, 10:02:02 AM »
During an event, someone mentioned there's a command in vPilot where a pilot can receive a text message whenever a controller updates the weather ATIS. It doesn't work for every ATC client but I've forgotten the tip. Does anyone recall how to do this?

I didn't know this was possible! In VRC with an ATIS published by vATIS we private message the ATIS 'SUBSCRIBE' to get the updates in our PM. That might work on pilot clients? I didn't see anything in the documentation at first look.

I do this all the time at work 'START AUTO UPDATES' so if it works in the simulator I will be doing it.
