VAC Static ATC Menu Mod

Type - Mod

The default ATC menu dynamically sorts airfields by your distance from them making it impossible to assign an airfield to a voice command. This mod keeps the default feature but adds static pages for all the airfields in the map so you can always use the same macro to call them up

UPDATE: V1.1 includes  a sample vac profile and a macrobuilder script.

the zip contains the JSGME addon and a zip with  sample vac profile for the static atc menus. i have also included a python script for generating a new profile from a series of templates. for example if you wanted to change/add a new phrase for inbound and you dont want to change all 20 something airports you can just change the inbound template in the template directory and run the script. It will then create a new vac profile.  the script has been tested with python 2.7 and 3.x

I have created a mod to the ATC menu that allows you to use VAC to contact airfields by name.
The default ATC menu dynamically sorts airfields by your distance from them making it impossible to assign an airfield to a voice command. This mod keeps the default feature but adds static pages for all the airfields in the map so you can always use the same macro to call them up
This mod creates a new ATC sub menu that has the following items:
Nearest - works just like the default ATC menu
Airports 1 - static list of first page airports sorted alphabetically
Airports 2 - static list of second page of airports sorted alphabetically
Airports 3 - static list of third page of airports sorted alphabetically
FARPs - lists up to 10 farps sorted alphabetically
Ships - lists up to 10 ships sorted alphabetically

CHANGES FROM DEFAULT BEHAVIOR
all the pages except the "nearest" work slightly different than the default
All airfields including unfriendly are listed
Friendly airfields are marked with coalition all others are not marked, Its up to you to know if they are neutral or hostile

KNOWN LIMITATIONS
All entries except Nearest are sorted by their internal callsign and not the displayed name so their order may appear a little off but it will not change. (unless new airfields are added in the future)
Due to the way FARPS and Ships are handled there can be duplicate entries in the menu. This is also a limitation of the default behavior but is more obvious when you have static lists. for example if you have two aircraft carriers of the same class they will have the same name in the menu.
Since Ships and FARPS are placeable objects and do apply to all aircraft they are in their own pages and those pages are dynamic. For example if a ship is sunk it will be removed from the menu

this mod is JSGME compatible.
For installation without JSGME unzip the file in your DCSWORLD directory
