• 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.

FSXA Adding vfr Waypoint to to FSX database

Messages

I trying to add custom waypoint to the database so we can use in the default GPS and also been able to create a flight plan with them.
I have to use the vor because in Italy the vfr point name are much more longer then 5 character and I still have the problem with the ident in 5 character.
I am wondering, if it is possible to create custom waypoint with other method but been able to create flightplan
Is it possible to change color of the vor icon or other navaid in the night version as the blu is not so clear on the map.
Is the map inside of the gps a bitmap in the gauges or is coming from the 3d mesh of fsx?
Thank' s for any input

<Vor

dmeOnly="TRUE"

a waypoint is simply a point of intersection into FSX, why complicate everything and make it a VOR?

VRPs - Visual Reporting Points - Italy - AIRAC 04 FEB 2016

File Description:
VFR Name - Code Designators version 2.0. AIRAC effective date 04 FEB 2016. With this file you can have directly on the GPS of your aircraft, visual reporting points on the Italian airspace. The visual reporting points are generally well-defined geographical areas and easily identifiable in real flight. Flying on FS9/FSX these points are not always easily identifiable visually well. Added to this version on some CTR / AD the VFR routes.The file LI_VRPs.bgl is fully compatible also with FS9 and P3D.Source data ENAV S.p.a.
 
Just because with waypoint it can only contain 5 character instead Vor can contain 48 character max.
As I said in Italy VFR are more then 5 character example CAPO CODA CAVALLO,
How on the GPS could you found a VFR point of this complex name with 5 character.
In our VFR school in vatsim we need real name so pilot can create and file easily flight plan.
