While on the Expert Server pilots may be subject to ghosting by active ATC and Moderators.
Reasons for ghosting may include:
- Not following ATC instructions after multiple warnings (warnings will be dependent on controller workload).
- Entering an active runway without permission.
- Taxiing through other aircraft, gate areas, and grass.
- Exceeding 550kts ground speed while below FL400.
This restriction will be removed upon release of Global.
- Blatant disregard for others (ex: departing in front of aircraft on final, skipping sequence, etc).
- Other based on situation.
What happens when I’m ghosted?
If a pilot is ghosted they will be able to finish their current flight, however they will not be visible or heard by other pilots for the duration of that session. The ghosted pilot will also receive a restriction from the Expert Server. A ghosted pilot will see which frequency, controller, and/or Moderator has ghosted them.
How long will I be restricted from the Expert Server?
Pilots that are ghosted will not be able to access the Expert Server for 7 days. This has been increased from the previous restriction of 3 days.
We conducted an extended experiment and have decided to increase the restriction to 7 days to ensure a quality experience for all customers in the Live environment. Ghosted users will still have access to the Training and Casual Server.
If inquiring about a ghost please refer to the following post:
Inquiries sent to Moderators and Staff that are aggressive in nature or containing inappropriate language will receive no response or support. Please include clear and concise information, free of emotionally-charged essays, so that we may better assist you in a timely manner. It is controller and Moderator policy that a screenshot is taken to support any and all ghosts so a fair assessment will be provided to users that follow the instructions above.
Note: Users with excessive ghosts are subject to permanent removal from the Expert Server and will be handled on a case-by-case basis by FDS Staff.
Thank you all for your continued efforts to make the Infinite Flight Live environment such an enjoyable place to be!
