First of all Thank you for the quick new 3.4.0 Update!
Now there's one thing I consider a step back. The new VFR ceiling altitude. I know somebody mentioned that changes to the VFR ceiling altitude were discussed in the Beta Forum.
I disagree with the reasoning, because VFR flights are allowed in Controlled airspace such as Center. (See also here for some other discussion about maximum altitude: https://www.euroga.org/forums/flying/65 ... vfr?page=1
Generally, I find IFR with PF3 very realistic but VFR still has quite a bit of potential. I understand that IFR is what the majority of users care about most. The ideal solution would be actually reading the airspace definitions from FS (I wrote a plugin that announces the airspace I enter) and providing mandatory control vs. optional flight following vs. nothing based on that. But this would probably take as much effort as implementing terrain-aware vectoring.
My feature requests would be to: A) either remove the ceiling alt completely or give the option to fix the VFR ceiling alt to something else than Center frequency.
B) Have an option to declare some waypoints as "Controlled". This would mean you have to contact ATC before passing them and they give you a squawk and "clear you into the airspace". Once you arrive at the first uncontrolled wpt after the beginning of Controlled, they release you again ("you are leaving" or "squawk vfr") and you can fly on your own again or request flight following. Ideally, one could have an arbitrary sequence of controlled and uncontrolled points.
Then way lower on the priority list C) An option to cancel flight following.
I think something along the lines of request B) would be a significant improvement to the VFR experience with PF3. But maybe I'm the only one ...
Thank you for all the work Dave and the Testers, because it cannot be said enough!
