Yes, I’ve wanted to say things to people in game too. As long as we can blacklist/whitelist.
Personally I’d want it to work with the second radio channel. Even if it was just text chat. That way, people could listened in on an area frequency if they are interested in chatting then could move off to thier own frequencies if they wanted to.
In other games with a captive audience? Yes. Not necessarily often but enough to turn people of a feature.
Trolls exist everwhere!
Another favorite is listening to a bunch of peoples bodily functions such as burping, farting, dog barking, kids playing, etc. That doesn’t affect text chat of course. With text chat we can get people liking to try and sell stuff or just flood with ■■■■.
If we limit the VHF range it would probably be OK. But those I listed are potentials issues I’ve experienced elsewhere.
implementation of Audio channel inside FS is not expected due one logical reason - people will not respect rules of Audio use, they will bla bla bla without any restrictions and send some required messages will be mess. This system is relevant only on systems that have defined strictly rules like Vatsim and other similar networks. Use of independed audio channels like Discord or other type then is expected as solution.
I’m glad I’m not using a real aviation radio in the sim then eh! You do realise this is a game. A sim yes, but still a game and that most here are not real pilots and don’t care one little bit if a communication device is used slightly out of context. And even with that, you do realize that frequencies like 122.75 exist right?
Anyway, I am sure that many of us that are pilots don’t care if another couple of players are chatting over a non-operational frequency. Just like many do in real life in fact for many different reasons.
Then you already have XBox chat. Since we log into MSFS with our XBox gamer id, it would make more sense to have a feature in MSFS where you could right-click a plane and pick “Add to chat” or such, and it adds them to XBox’s chat.
That makes a lot more sense than having them spend development time duplicating a feature that the underlying platform already provides. The developers already have a long enough list of things that need to be fixed or finished.
as said before, you can use vatsim, but i think radio channel, as said before too, it’s good option too, personally i don’t need it, but i think is must have for some people, even me, who even don’t have mic, some time will can listen radio, and may be even will purchase mic for this lol… music on
Yes we need something.
I have more than once had some nice VFR flights where i suddenly fly together with others and have a good time, but not fun that you can not communicate in any way, just tilting the wings is too limited communication. - Would be nice with some form of ingame communication without the need for external apps and stuff.
