Description

I've completely re-written the ATC text-to-speech to reflect European radiotelephony phraseology within the limits of the current ATC system. Both VFR and IFR closely resemble ICAO RTF phraseology + Eurocontrol recommendations with this mod.

> European ATC Phraseology Demonstration Flight

Installation

Big thanks to @Usoska for simplifying the installation process!

After downloading unzip and execute the .bat file. The installer will automatically create a back-up of the original file in the fs-base folder. Follow the onscreen instructions to locate and select the fs-base folder. Make sure hidden folders are displayed as some folders may be hidden and therefore not selectable using the installer.

To uninstall or reinstall, simply run the installer again!

Note: the name you insert will be used as pilot-in-command name at uncontrolled aerodromes. 

List of changes from Version 1.2 to Version 1.3

  • Request Directions to the Airport replaced by Request Surface Wind.
  • Squawk ident phraseology when no reply received improved.
  • Minor other improvements.
Update: installer added, otherwise the same.

Question, suggestions, problems etc.

Kind regards,

    Steam user.
    I don't have the Official folder in the Packages folder.
    My Packages folder only shows:
    A32nx (probably for A320 FBW mod)

    Any Ideas? Using the latest FS2020 update.

    EDIT:
    Figured it out.
    I'm using ModManFX mod manager, and that moves the location of the roaming folders. Mins was on in the under a Flightsim folder on the root of the SSD that my FS2020 installation is located.

    Hello,

    ModManFX don't move anything at all.
    it create symlink between FS2020 community folder and ModManFX folders Mods.
    a "package" subfolder exists in one ModManFX folder but it's not at ALL your FS2020 "package" folder.
    ModManFX don't modify any FS2020 folder or FS2020 file, it just use FS2020 community folder to create these symlink.

    I'm sorry, what do you mean with "I have put the copy of the data in the fs-base folder"? You can just unzip anywhere, open the .bat file and then in the window which opens, select the location of the fs-base folder. If it doesn't work, you could also download the old version of the MOD, it is still available here, it requires a little bit more work to install though.

    In windows explorer you need to go to "view" and make hidden items visible.

    I'm just checking if this error is normal. This is what I get when trying to install the package from the .bat file.

    I haven't heard of anyone else having that error so far... You could download the older version on this website, it is essentially the same mod but requires some more work. Its a manual script in which you need to add the path to the fs-base folder and then copy and paste into Windows PowerShell.

    I have exactly the same problem. When I select the path to fs-base where en-US.locPAK is located and enter my nickname, then almost immediately after that the error appears System.OutOfMemoryException was thrown right under the message Processing file. I have tried this with Command Prompt and PowerShell with admin rights, but to no avail. It seems like for some unknown reason either the script is too long, or the destination file is (which I doubt though). My Windows 10 x64 is the latest build. Thanks for any ideas.

    I don't have any experience with programming, it seems to work for most people though. You could download the old version from this site also, its a little more work as its just a script you need to add the correct path, copy and paste into PowerShell...

    Does it replace all ATC phrases or will I still have the normal one when I'm not in Europe?

    Unfortunately there isn't such option currently in MSFS so it replaces everything. Only thing you could do is run the installer to install or uninstall before starting MSFS depending on the location you want to fly. One idea which just came to mind is if you copy the default en-US.locPak file, change the file name to any other language file (for example Spanish es-ES.locPak) and then run the installer to install the mod. You now have both the original and the modded version and I think you should now be able to change in game by selecting between English and Spanish.... Give it a try, but make back-ups!

    Did you unzip? Try to run as administrator.

    Yes I did unzip it, and I tried to run in administrator, it pops the window and then crashes

    I haven't heard that one before. You could try the previous version, I think its still available for download on this website. Its more work as its a manual PowerShell script, make a back-up first! The readme file has a script you can copy and paste into PowerShell.

    Hi, I'm wanting to reinstall the mod after latest MFS2020 update. I followed this video before
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fINMo6N9p6s
    However it's now unavailable and labelled "Private Video"
    Do you have another link please?
    Fantastic mod 5 star!

    Hi, if you redownload the mod, it now has an installer. It will let you select the fs-base folder and then installs it. It will create an automatic back-up which lets you uninstall when running the installer again or overwrite the back-up with a new back-up after the next patch / update.

    does this change the ATIS to hpa instead of InHg ?

  • image
    Nijntje replied Author
    December 28, 2020
    No it doesn't unfortunately. It only changes the text-to-speech into something more realistic. To change inHg to hPa changes to the core simulator are required.

    Not working for me, I did follow every step in the tutorial but I still got the exactly same ATC. Maybe the only one thing that I didn't got was to change "gods gift to aviation" (thats me), with your own name!" Which name exactly, your preferred callsign, your real name, admin name, MSFS nickname? So I just changed it to a random callsign.

    Pilot in command name, but that would not break the script. Did you watch the video in the description above? This one:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fINMo6N9p6s

    Turn on subtitles for description. Installation is admittedly not very easy, unfortunately Asobo won't let base files be modified via a community mod.

    uh oh.. now I see, it seems that I didn't notice to press Enter after pasting the text in the CMD. Now it's working. But I see there are also a lot of (....) marks in the text field - even on your screenshots. Is that a bug or the game limitation?

    Nijntje replied Author
    December 10, 2020
    Those are limitations, I have written the text in the ATC window as it would be in real life. In the text-to-speech everything within brackets is not spoken due to ATC system limitations (unfortunately).

    Well this mod will probably be much closer still than the MSFS phraseology as its basically ICAO with some Eurocontrol recommendations. I did replace the picture now, I just took the first available picture on the internet...
