For those of you who already had Iyp installed, does it still work and allow you to fly because mine won't let me fly at all even though I had it installed before Iyp was discontinued

Every time I've tried to work with MCE, it was like don't call us we'll call you.
So, don't hold your breath to wait for them to get back to you.
Sorry, I can't be much more help.

But I do have to agree that it isn't like when we were flying for our virtual careers.

I emailed Robert to let him know and to ask what was up regarding IYP’s status, but I’m not holding my breath for a response. I’m taking a brake from flying for now, mainly because I can’t get through the MCE developer’s heads that we need some kind of landing assists. I’m beginning to see the challenge for them. When you set up IYP, you were required to create a runways database specifically for IYP with makerways. I wonder if this data in the database is what data IYP used to make landings.
A large portion of MCE’s users, and by a large portion, I mean pretty much every one of them, uses the advanced aircraft that has FMCs. When you program those, it manages everything that IYP did, such as maintaining optimized airspeed, etc. Ben suggested that we can land manually by turning off vertical speed hold and using rate of descent command, however the issue with this is that with an ILS landing, you aren’t actually following the glideslope, even if ATC vectors you correctly.

MCE devs have been pretty much receptive and implemented a lot of things for us in the time I’ve been using it—I actually enjoy using PF3 with MCE now, it feels almost like IYP when I say Request IFR clearance, request taxi, etc. And the latest thing to be implemented is that it uses the file to get PF3 frequency data.
I’ll have to do a video showing the devs how using the ROD command… we can land, but it sure isn’t a smooth landing. As you approach the ground, you have to pull up a bit to decrease your climb rate, and that’s where using the keyboard would come in handy. Just can’t do it quickly with voice. Also, without a runway database for it, it doesn’t know airport elevation, and this is critical. I’m sure the MCE devs wonder where I went, I’ll have to check in I guess, especially with the fate of IYP being unknown.

I really hope so, but I think as he said he’s not working on it any more and the webpage also stated about his health its possible Iyp is finished. Even if you already had it installed it doesn’t work. Again I really hope that is not the case
