Simplified many messages from ATC to make for less verbose and shorter messages, especially useful when using real traffic.
This is not intended to be a full ICAO phraseology mod with 100% realism, the objective is to reduce the excessive verbosity of MSFS ATC (and do some corrections here and there)
- no more "request to start/stop pushback" on ground
- no more "via taxiway echo one, alpha two, delta eleven, cross runway, juliet 5, jump to the left, exit the roundabout", you (and AI) will just get a "taxi to runway $someRunway"
- shorten ATC messages like "easyjet three two is passing $someAltitude, climbing $someOtherAltitude", now it is just "easyjet three two climbing $someAltitude"
- simplify those "vueling seven three eight you are someMiles from someAirport, northeast, expect vector etcetc etc", now there will be only the final vector and assigned approach
- simplify traffic messages like "lufthansa seven six, traffic is type $someType three o'clock, 9 miles at 30000ft, report them in sight", now it is just "traffic three o'clock, 9 miles at 30000ft, report visual"
- cleaned menu of "request takeoff VFR" for those who don't file plans through msfs but still want some interaction with ATC, not fun to have a liner request VFR departure from a major airport :)
- simplified those "$somePlane radar contact, 20 miles east of $somePlace at $someAltitude", ATC will just say "$somePlane identified".
- silence forever those annoying "$somePlane you are three hundred above your assigned altitude, descend and maintain $someThingElse"
- silence forever those annoying "goooood daaaaaaay"

How does it work
For example, a sequence:
"$towerSomeAirport, $callsign requesting pushback"
"$callsign, request accepted"
"$towerSomeAirport, $callsign, requesting the end of pushback"
"$callsign, request to end pushback received"
For all those four messages, for each plane, there will be complete silent now (at last!), however do keep in mind that MSFS will anyway try to transmit so you will still be unable to transmit when AI tries to open comms, luckily now it will take less than one second to get a free "slot" to transmit. That's standard MSFS behaviour that will not change even removing messages completely.
But this simple change reduces by a great deal the unnecessary verbosity in MSFS ATC.
