It has literally been years, when is 1.21 coming out?

There's another thread that has addressed this but there's no timeline. To me it seems to be a lost cause.

Thought we had gotten there a few weeks ago but we were mistaken. Oh well. Confused

I tried to install ATC pro again last week, resigned to the fact that it’s not going to get fixed and the frustration came back in full force.

Clearing a plane for a visual approach and then seeing it join the localizer in the opposite direction until it gets to Center

Having to say the name of a fix over and over and over DUMMM....FATTT....DADDY... and the planes never understand (yes I followed the pronunciation guide, as well as every accent in my repertoire)

Having Double Eagle call for a departure and never being able to figure out wth they are expecting me to say (yes I was following the voice commands doc).

@brodie4598 I think we all can feel your pain.  I know that I had my hopes up when Tom suggested releasing build 21 unfinished but unfortunately this does not look likely at this point.   I am not sure why Tom and Dave decided to hold back the releasing the unfinished build 21 even a beta version.  There were a bunch of positive feedback supporting the release of the unfinished version.  I come from the school of thought where any update that fixes any of the previous bugs and brings enhanced features should be released even though there may be some bugs or even new bugs as long as the release being improvements to the current version.  As long as none of the bugs are "game breaking".  I am guessing that Dave and Tom have their reasons that the current build is not ready for release. Well, we will have to wait until its finished.

Regarding the sign above:  Unfortunately its not the right "Hell" that froze over.  Although we have been "to Hell and back" a few times on this forum.

Most importantly:  I hope that software Tom and his family have a better 2019 and that he has a successful recovery.  That is more important than anything on this forum.

Brodie, in regards to the Double Eagle departures, try this, it works for me every time:

For a departure release, say "November one two three, heading four zero, maintain eight thousand, released"

Of course you would substitute whatever call sign, heading and altitude needed.

For an IFR clearance, I say:

"November one two three, cleared from Alexander as filed, maintain eight thousand, departure frequency one two three point niner, squawk six one two four"

Again substituting your call sign and altitude as appropriate.

I've had the same problems with the fix names at ABQ, but it seems to be just those three that you mentioned.  I always say "dumb emmz" "fat teez" and "dad eee".  Sometimes it works but sometimes not.

Thanks for that Alan - I actually was thinking I had to direct the command to double eagle in the so that was definitely my problem there - thanks!.

I feel like a dummy repeating DUMMM and FATTT over and over and over and over....

I can get dad-dee to work, fat-tease works half the time, and dum-ems never works.

For departures:
"ABC123 heading zero four, climbing to one two thousand" works for me.

"ABC123 cleared from Alexander as filed, climb and maintain one two thousand, departure frequency one two three point four, squawk seven seven seven seven." I always assign that squawk because it makes me smile.

Lotta broken stuff, but it's still a fun simulator. I don't know of any that are better.

I agree, its the best simulator out right now. I just used a suggestion to send the pilots to a fix beyond the DUMMM and FATTT  or DADDY fixes and the pilots don't have a problem with may not be realistic as far as what RL controllers would do but it works for me.

I just fly them in the direction of the fix manually, and send them to the ARTCC when they're close enough.
