Problem with lateral separation of incoming flights on the edge of screen (ATC-SIM)

submitted by lumptom to /forum/atc-sim

Hi, although I am a quite long time on ATC SIM, I am still a little annoyed from time to time when following situation occures: new incoming flight appears at the edge of screen on e.g. 6000ft, so I direct it to airport and give it clearance to 2000ft (example). Five seconds away another incoming flight appears on the edge on 5000ft and no enough lateral separation to first flight. During few seconds, without chance to do anything againts, I receive separation conflict.

Is there any chance simulator will not prepare such "traps" for us in future?

Besides this, there is another problem with incoming traffic: sometimes there are two planes entering area in close proximity to each other, within minimum vertical separation, which you can not even see on screen but only in the list. Nothing you can do about it, planes climbing/descending so slow that you will surely get huge violations...

Two things you have to do to avoid violations. Do not change altitude or speed of aircraft until they're sufficiently far enough away from the edge of the screen.
