The New 20.1 Violations System

May, 18, 2020 by

Since the introduction of ATC to Infinite Flight’s Live Servers, moderation of the Expert Server has been an ongoing issue. Expert Server ATC have the power to Report pilots who are not following their instructions or otherwise not flying appropriately. Controllers are strictly instructed that Reports are a last resort, and must warn pilots first in almost all situations.

In the next Infinite Flight update, 20.1, violations and reports will be merged into a new Three-Tier system. What we currently know as Violations (overspeeds, aerobatics, etc) will become Level 1 Violations. If a pilot receives 3 or more of these in a flight, they will be disconnected from the live servers.

What is currently known as Ghostings/Reports will be renamed to Violations and split into 2 Tiers – Level 2 Violations and Level 3 Violations. Level 2 Violations disconnect a pilot from the server, but give pilots the option to continue their flight offline. These violations will not cause pilots to loose access from the Expert Server unless their amount of Level 2 Violations exceeds the limit.

Level 3 Violations are similar to Level 2, but more serious and cause the pilot to be removed from the Expert Server for 1 week.
