    Option added so players can choose how flight controllers address them (Commander Name, Ship Name or Ship ID) when approaching a station

    Does this actually work as ive tried all options and it dosnt make a difference they still address me using the random phonic letters etc.

    No matter which option you choose, it always uses only the first three characters to address you.

    Thus if
    Cmdr name : Big Jim
    Ship name : The Mill
    Callsign : BTM-74

    flight controllers will address you as
    Cmdr name : Bravo India Gold
    Ship name : Tango Hotel Echo
    Callsign : Bravo Tango Mike

    It was never random. If you get really random, there is a problem.
    Remember except what Maxine explains below, they also first call out your ships manufacturer then the three letters (for example "lakon november lima sierra").

    Might depend on the controller, though.

    My callsign is currently AZZ-Heavy (CMDR Azzie Elbub in a T-9 Heavy). Now, it might be my imagination, but I think some controllers address me as "Lakon Alpha Zulu Zulu Heavy". But it's only some of them - I imagine I hear it on one port, I try to listen for it on the next port, and get the ususal "Lakon Apha Zulu Zulu", then when I return to the first port again I've forgotten all about it. And no, "H" should be "Hotel".

    I've gotten the "Heavy" designation in my T-9, but I've only noticed it at surface ports (most recently, the robot ATC at Farseer). It was the three letter code that I've chosen, just with the addition of "Heavy." Not sure why it only happens at surface ports (in my experience), but it could have something to do with gravity (if you want to go with an in-game explanation). Starports can basically decide how "Heavy" a monster like the T-9 is, because they have artificial gravity. Surface ports, however, just have to deal with whatever the gravity is on that particular rock. That's the way I've been thinking about it, at least.

    Back to the original question, other CMDRs are right. I chose "ship name" as my preferred callout, and it worked just fine (first three letters). I still haven't decided on a name for my Vulture, so the other day I got "Victor Uniform Lima." If you chose the "ship designation" as your callout, it will be whatever you've set it to in the Livery - the default looks like it is generated based on your CMDR name.

    Yes the default is the first three letters of your Commander name, which is what it was before we were offered the choice, I actually used those three letters as the start of my ship ID so it sounded more ATC speak which is where heavy comes from it was added to the ATC call out to aircraft above a certain maximum take off weight to ensure sufficient separation was left behind those large aircraft to avoid wake turbulence issues the term Super is also used in this context but only the A380 qualifies for it.

    If the U.S. Prez-for-Life privatizes ATC like he wants to, the new designation will be "Yuuuuuuge."

    Well Super is already in use for the A380.

    Makes sense.

    You sometimes get the heavy when flying a large ship.

    Duh. That's the only menu I didn't thoroughly check.

    Thank you.
