AccuMap community meeting

Hi everyone,

The AccuMap team will be holding a public meeting on Wednesday the 12st of May (21/03/18) at 0800z.

This conference will be held on a temporary Discord server:

As many of you know, AccuMap is in the stages of a complete redesign for v2. As we strive to make the best application available, we need community input.
We'll be discussing features, design problems and solutions, as well as community suggestions.

What: Public discussion and problem solving for the benefit of AccuMap and all VATSIM users. A chance to give suggestions directly to the developers and help them solve new design problems coming with v2.

When: 21/03/18 0800z

If you're unable to make it, feel free to comment your suggestions on this thread, or leave your suggestions on the server.

We hope to see you there!

AccuMap v2 in development.

As many of you know, AccuMap is a great program with a lot of potentials, however, it's held back by a massive flaw in the way the map component works, resulting in the application having very poor performance across all operating systems.


As we enter the new year, AccuMap v2 has started development as a web-based application, or web app. Version 2 will provide a 250% performance increase, better memory management, and server-side data processing.

Version 2 will also offer a desktop application for Windows, MacOS, and Linux (Debian) distributions. As a result of this, the current AccuMap desktop application will not receive any updates until we have finished the public beta stage.


We apologize for all inconvenience, we wish you a happy new year, and hope you're excited about AccuMap v2, making AccuMap great again!

If you wish to follow the progress of the development, take a look at our Facebook page, or lurk around on our Discord server.

Hotfix released (v1.4.1)

The latest hotfix it out and ready for release!

So what's changed?

  • Bug and UI fixes
  • "At a Glance counters" fixed
  • New and improved sounds (Not as annoying, no more beep every 2 minutes, less deafening)
  • Buddy list fixed
  • VATSTATS integration
  • New and heavily improved search engine
  • Approach sector drawing "bellow" CTR/FSS sectors possibly fixed (I really can't tell)

This will be the last update for the next few weeks as I (Eoin) am visiting family in my home country and I'm away from my main programming rig.


If your automatic download completes and AccuMap does not close down by itself, please navigate to "%appdata% /AccuMap" and run "accumap-install.exe". This is a known issue and we do not yet have a workaround for it yet.

  • SUPER DUPER INSANE PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS!!!!!!!! (It's not perfect but it's a lot better than before)

We also have some more features such as VATBOOK maps and flight plan route decoding, but due to some time constraints, you can expect to see those features in a later hotfix.

Cross The Pond Notice

With Cross The Pond Eastbound 2017 only hours away, it makes me sad that we can not release this update just yet (

We have many new features including an over the top performance boost that may just solve all of your performance issues, lined up and ready for takeoff, but some small issues are stopping us from pushing an update. Please keep in mind that the current version of AccuMap is still an early release. Any issues regarding sectors, aircraft, and so on, found tonight during CTP are being monitored and worked on.

AccuMap is not perfect just yet, but we're almost there! Enjoy the cross!

Increase performance with AccuMap

We are constantly on the lookout for ways we can increase AccuMap's performance. In the meantime, whilst we find out what the major cause of the performance issues are, we have found that increasing your refresh rate to 5 minutes or more greatly increases the time you can use the program. This will be an ongoing effort, so stay tuned for more updates.
