    Process for Converting v4 Project to v5

    It appears that there are a lot of folks loading their v4 projects into ADE v5. I am not sure what the results are but given the big differences between the recompiled airports LM create for v5 to v4 I think there are some messy ones I am trying to get my head around a work flow for the...

    P3D v5 Sloped Airport Taxiway Creation

    I have been reminded that creating a taxiway using the normal methods will give each new taxi point and altitude of zero at the moment. The altitude of a taxi point is not relevant and ignored if the airport is not sloped or created for earlier sim versions. This altitude is AMSL - there is no...

    P3D v5 SID/STAR Help Please

    I would appreciate some help on the new feature in v5 which supports SIDs and STARS. My knowledge of approaches, how they work and how to create them is zilch. It seems to me that the implementation of these by LM may be faulty in that all of them reference the Runway 00. (I have asked but not...

    ADE Wish List

    We used to have a wish for ADE but it got very long and with limited time to work on the program things got lost. I am aware that folks are spending more time with the program recently - probably due to Covid 19. So for a limited time I am creating a new wishlist. Please add requests for ADE...
