Is VStars backward compatible with VRC's Sector files?

Translation into a less polite dialect: Read the documentation.

Thanks for your polite reply. A shorter version would be "No"

That would definitely be shorter, but I think less appropriate. vSTARS really does demand that you read its documentation before you can use it effectively.

I've been an avid simmer for more than 10 years. I am aware that documentation is vital. But with so much documentation to read and so little time, it is more efficient to chose where to spend the time with critical questions. Unless all of the artcc's develop the new files, it will not be worth it to learn a new client.

For the reading impaired....Page 5, No 5 under Terms and Concepts.

Facility Engineers import these files into the facility configuration.

EDIT: Once you get this setup, its a really complex client....I'm still trying to piece my Two facilities together and itching to start logging some hours.

I can guarantee you that it will take you more time to come to the forums, ask each question, and wait for answers, than it would take to read the documentation.

Even if your ARTCC builds the facility files, you will still need to read the controller's guide and the command reference ... if you don't want to do that, then yes, it will not be worth it for you to learn vSTARS.
