FS Host did not advance a player.
« on: October 04, 2011, 12:51:14 PM »

Heya, I am the host of Aviation Global. I have made a new hoplist based on Southwest Airlines routes. I had a new pilot today that flew hop 1. When he landed he decelerated below 60 knots. My server did not advance him.

The log shows:
111004  12:30:22  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1342'  170   100 kts  N35 31.37  W097 38.79  Flying
111004  12:30:35                                                                                                 Flying Time: 0d 1h 0m 21s, Slew/Pause/Rate Time: 0d 0h 12m 3s
111004  12:30:37  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1300'  174    92 kts  N35 30.95  W097 38.79  On ground
111004  12:30:57  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1302'  183    63 kts  N35 30.61  W097 38.80  On ground
111004  12:31:07  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1297'  053     2 kts  N35 30.50  W097 38.89  On ground
111004  12:31:12  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1297'  055     0 kts  N35 30.50  W097 38.89  On ground
111004  12:31:42  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1297'  055     0 kts  N35 30.50  W097 38.89  Slew/Pause/Rate
111004  12:32:17  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1299'  173     0 kts  N35 24.28  W097 35.34  On ground
111004  12:32:22  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KOKC        1299'  173     0 kts  N35 24.28  W097 35.34  On ground
111004  12:34:03  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KOKC        1299'  173     0 kts  N35 24.28  W097 35.34  Slew/Pause/Rate
111004  12:34:28  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KOKC        1299'  353     0 kts  N35 22.77  W097 36.34  On ground
111004  12:36:24  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KOKC        1299'  353     0 kts

(He or She was paused for about 12 minutes over KPWA)

He or she got:
(name edited for privacy): ?hop
*AGW (FSHost 3.2): [Private to <player>] Hop 1/116: Fly heading 339 for 157nm and land at KOKC (Will Rogers World), then type "?hop"

the first 2 hops are:
KDAL = Click "Create a Flight" (or use the World menu) to start at KDAL  [surface: concrete] [alt: 486ft](Dallas Love Field in United States), then type "?hop" for first hop instructions.
KOKC = Fly heading 347 for 157.3nm and land at KOKC [surface: concrete] [alt: 1296ft] (Will Rogers World in United States), then type "?hop"
KHOU = Fly heading 161 for 364.5nm and land at KHOU [surface: concrete] [alt: 46ft] (Houston William P. Hobby in United States), then type "?hop"

Where is the problem?

I hope they will return so I can advance him or her. They were flying FSX.

Thanks for any help.

I think the problem is related to those lines saying "Slew/Pause/Rate". That indicates that either the person slewed to a new location, paused the sim, or changed the time rate. In this case, I think they slewed. I mapped the last several lat/lon coordinates in Google Maps to retrace their path, and then it became clear. Take a look at this Google Maps page.

Notice the big jump from point C to D, which corresponds to these log lines:

111004  12:31:42  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1297'  055     0 kts  N35 30.50  W097 38.89  Slew/Pause/Rate
111004  12:32:17  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KPWA        1299'  173     0 kts  N35 24.28  W097 35.34  On ground

Then in the next line, you can see that FSHost updated their nearest airport to KOKC:

111004  12:32:22  Mooney Bravo With G1000              KOKC        1299'  173     0 kts  N35 24.28  W097 35.34  On ground

That's my theory at the moment... let me know if you find something else.

Thanks,
Russell

I see it I see the light  :D

He or she slewed. This is disallowed on my server. Now I know how to trace such things.
Thanks very very much Russell. Very kind of you. ;D
