Was wondering if it would be possible to not have the text display for radio chatter not directed at me.
ATC text is either on or off. I'm not sure I understand why people really need ATC text displayed anyway. Do you have a hard time understanding the commands?
Because if you are doing more than one thing, then you can read it instead of having to listen to it, which I find slightly easier. If you miss a vital detail you can check by reading it.
in the real world when you are multitasking and miss something ATC says, you can just ask for a repeat.
ATC in busy airspaces talk fast, and that's why I always use a kneepad to scratch down frequencies, heading and altitude assignments, and of course squawk codes.
If you want to get a feel for the real thing, forget about text screens... learn to hear the voice and right down things... real fast.
But I suppose it all boils down to personal opinion and realism. I just wish I had any MSFS series when I first learned to fly years ago.
In settings under ATC there is a setting for show all ATC
Unselect it and you only get the text for your aircraft
thanks tomthetank, that's exactly what I was looking for. I never even knew it was there.
