I see that the point has been answered multiple times here, but if you would like to understand how hard this is to do, with 300+ arrivals over 4 hours, when the real world airport can only handle 56 arrivals an hour, I hope you understand why the controller said that practice approaches might not be available, take a look at this video. This is from one of the final controllers, and as you can see, there is very, very little space to squeeze in any more airplanes in here:

Now, I'd also like to point out that for this event, ZNY staffed a number of other alternative diversion fields, many all the way, all within a 15-20 minute flight of PHL. ABE, MDT, EWR, JFK and MORE had ATC, and every single one of them would probably be able to accommodate your request if you had asked for it.

The Control Room Floor / Re: ACARS - CPDLC

The hoppie network has been in use for close to two decades now by a very small amount of controllers and pilots, but even so, it's become much more popular in the last few years. Euroscope has plugins for automatically sending and receiving CPDLC messages inside the radar client, so you do not have to use the horrible controller client.

Unfortunately, since most of us use VRC/vSTARS/vERAM do not support plugins, so unless Ross decides he wants to refresh both VRC and vERAM (possibly vSTARS, but then again, CPDLC is not used in terminal environments...) I don't see that support happening anytime soon.

Clifford, the disconnect you experienced was because of a network error and vPilot lost the connection to VATSIM. You are able to reconnect at any time.
