All settings are transmitted to the kACARSII client when logging in. Currently logged in clients wil not get the new settings until logging in for a new session.
This is the version of KACARSII that is requested by the VA to be run by all users. If the user logs in with a different version, the user will receive a message (See Below)
This allows the VA to control if a user can login with a different version of kACARSII. If this is set to OFF then a user attempting to login with a different version will not be able to login to the VA until the user updates their version of kACARSII.
This is the message that will be displayed to the user when attempting to login with a different version of kACARSII.
If this is set to ON then kACARSII will use the "imagelink" field of the aircraft table for the image to be displayed inside of kACARSII. If set to OFF then kACARSII will look for an aircraft image on the VA site in the images/aircraft folder. The image should be named ICAO.jpg.
Flight Log times will be logged as the users FS time if this is set to ON. If set to OFF then the flight log times will be the users system time.
Flight log times will be UTC. If the FS time is ON and theis is ON then the flight log time will be FS utc time. The same applies to user local system time.
If this is ON, kACARSII will use accelerated time as real time. This means that if the user sets the acceleration as 4X, each second will count for 4 seconds of flight time.
Allow all users to fly charter flights. If allowed kACARSII will display the areas necessary for a charter flight to be constructed and flown. If OFF kACARSII will hide these areas and stop charter flights from being flown.
Allow all users to change the scheduled aircraft to another aircraft in the VA fleet.
Allow users to log multiple landings. All landings will be logged but the last landing will be recorded as the PIREP landing.
Allow users to use the chat function
Allow users to view the logged in pilot list
Control if the web browser tab is visible or not.
If the web browser switch is ON this url will be used as the url for the browser inside of kACARSII
Condense flight logs to reduce total number of flight log lines.
If this VA uses more than a single airline this should be set to ON.
This is a message that is sent to a retired user that attempts to log in using kACARSII.
Stop the currency symbol from being sent to kACARSII. Some currency symbols cause issue when transmitted.
This will limit the number of airports sent to kACARSII to only those airports that have a matching schedule.
Percentage of load to set as a basline for the random load generated.
Percentage variation used with Load_Factor to create a random load
Number of seconds for kACARSII to send a live update. Minimum is 15 seconds.
If ON then all flight log fuel displays will be controlled by the VA. If OFF the user can select how the flight log and displays are formatted. (lbs or kgs)
Set the fuel display to kilograms. If OFF then the display will be pounds.
These three settings are used to control how the aircraft/airline/airport data is sent to kACARSII. If any of these is set to ON, kACARSII will download the data and create a local file of this data. The next time kACARSII needs this data it will pull the data from the file rather than getting it from the site. These should only be set if these tables rarely change. If there is a change the user will need to reset the data manually (delete the local file and restart kACARSII)
Control if the user is allowed to use acceleration. kACARSII will attempt to stop FS from accelerating. It will reset the sim rate to 1X if it monitors FS at a sim rate above 1x.
Two settings that control if a flight is allowed to start based on the crash detection settings. These are ignored with X-Plane
Control if a flight is allowed to start if the FS setting of unlimited fuel is set.
kACARSII will monitor the fuel levels. If fuel is added while recording kACARSII will atttempt to reset the fuel level to the previous level.
kACARSII will unpause FS if a pause situation is monitored.
If ON kACARSII will start the counting of the flight time when the parking brake is deactivated.
Allow users tosearch by flight number. If OFF a user is required to have a bid on a schedule to fly a schedule.
Control the flight level that a user is to fly. If this is set to ON then the flight level inside of kACARSII will be set by the schedule. The user will not be allowed to change this flight level.
This is the default altitude for all schedules. This is only used when a schedule has a 0 flight level.
This settings goes along with the Site Message Functional Upgrade Option. This is the message that is sent to all kACARSII clients when logging in and also every 10 minutes.
The next settings all are related to the screenshot generator. The FTP data is needed by the client to upload the screenshot to the VA site. Multiple Screen shot setting is set to ON will have kACARSII created multiple screenshot files with a timestamp addition on the name. These will be uploaded to the site. If OFF each user will have one file that is overwritten each upload.
Allow users to ignore the position check function and start/stop the flight from were the aircraft is. The distance to the airport is still logged. This is for the departing and arriving airports.
Allow users to only divert to an airport that is in the VA database. If set to OFF the user can enter any airport ICAo as the dirveting airport.
This is the altitude that starts the AFK checks. If the aircraft is below this altitude the AFK will not activate. This altitude is in feet.
Toggle the AFK function. If ON then the AFK function will be active. If OFF then the AFK function will be deactivated.
If ON a new menu item will appear for the AFK user list. Any user on this list will be required to comply with the AFK function.
This is the altitude that the landing light trigger is set (in feet). This is used with the Aircraft Data Page.
