• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Taxi Sign Validation Program 0.9c (beta) 1.0b

New Defaults Menu, Status System so you can use it for auditing your work, CSV file output via Print so printed punch/Check/Snagging lists can be printed from a spreadsheet program.

Works with FSX and Flight Simulator. Video was created using Flight Simulator as the example.

A video tutorial has been produced for this version:- Tutorial

The Manual published previously has yet to be updated.
I have changed the File Menu which was hardly intuitive. It now reads:

Set Default XML Path
Open XML

If you try to launch Open XML without a Default XML Path, it will open the Set Default Path dialogue.

FSUIPC Connection has now been included, plus a decoder for the taxi sign text. After a Taxi Sign "AutoScan", clicking on the intersection number where a bad sign is reported now decodes the Taxi Sign to make it easier to understand, AND if fsuipc connection has been made to the Flight Sim, it will position the aircraft over that taxi sign.

This has not been tested with Lockeed Martin products. Version 0.9c does not work with the ADE 20.... XML output. There is a lot more data in the XML, so I have to work out a way to make it work on this new platform. I am currently working on modifying an airport so that I have source XML on which to test it.
