Pilot-Client team seeks support - 2013/08/20 (Adam Trzcinski)
As we are making good progress we need further assistance for some parts of the projects:
As we got now loads of models licensed by their freeware designer, we are about to check how many and which liveries actual are ready to use for FS9 and FSX/P3D.
Therefore we got a list of the approved models and lieveries but we need it more evaluated.
We need someone or a group of people who are downloading the listed models, checking out against a list of the most flown aircraft on VATSIM, which models we need to get in (are missing yet), which liveries of which models already have been approved and put this all into a database.
It is not a very technical job but a job which have to be done and there is not deadline or hurry for. So we would be so happy if someone would be around who would be interested in this kind of help.
As well as we plan to have this big repository for the client and the greatest effort for a VA is that everybody on the network see your outstanding liveries, we would like to get you in to the progress. After we have defined the models which are from which model developer available, its up to you start painting these specific models (which your are flying in your VA) with your livery designs and hand it over to us. So everybody who is using the new VATSIM client will be able to see your liveries on the network. Please contact us as well for the paintkits and provide us with loads of your liveries for the specific models we are announcing later on - after the list would be ready. We are sorry that we can not take every kind of liveries from other freeware AI model developer, as we need their "OK" for using it on the VATSIM repository.
Many thanks to everybody who is helping us out with these points!

Application as Visiting ATC - 2012/08/15 (Jakob Grzywacz)
Due to a high number of visiting ATC applications and limited training capacity, VATSIM-Germany is unable to approve any visiting request for the time beeing.
We can not predict how long this status will last, as this depends on many factors.
We hope to improve our capacity within the next months, in order to let foreign atcos control the german airspace.
As soon as situation improves and the current que is reduced, it will be announced on the same place.
Allready approved applications will be handled, but you may expect a delay of several weeks.
We would like to apologize at this point, and hope to be back in full streghth soon.
