[FIXED 7412] MISSING FILES IN CLEAN INSTALLATION

Several files got missed from the installer. This does not affect updates but does affect new installations. This is fixed and will be in the installer shortly. Meantime the files are attached in a zip here. Please backup your 179 installation and then copy the files from the zip

[FIXED 7412] COMPILER ERROR WITH SID/STAR (AND OTHER?) APPROACHES

The immediate problem has been identified. Four additional fix types have been added but not reflected in the SDK. The first fix is done in that ADE now recognizes these correctly

[OPEN] IMPLEMENTATION OF SID/STAR

There are issues with the implementation of SID/STARs Being investigated
I am waiting on LM with repect to this

EDIT
LM have confirmed that the implementation of SID/STAR are correct. I need to update how ADE displays the approach properties and also how they are drawn

[NEW 7439] STOCK OBJECTS AND BUILDINGS APPEAR IN WRONG PLACE WHEN USING PROJECTS CREATED FOR P3D v4

This is a known issue and not actually a bug in ADE. LM seem to have recompiled the airports for v5 and in the process moved some or all stock objects. This means that the micro excludes generated for stock placement in v4 no longer work in v5.

There is no confirmed solution to this. Removing and Loading stock data in ADE for P5 might work or it may need user defined exclusion(s). Projects for v5 started from a v5 stock object should work

I have closed this since there is no bug or issue with ADE but rather a process issue in fixing misplaced objects or new objects from v5

Added a function that changes stock objects from v4 into user defined objects for v5 and removes micro excludes. Let's the user retain v4 stock items into v5 if they wish.

[FIXED 7415] TAXIPOINTS, PARKING AND APRONS ALTITUDE IS REQUIRED

These elements in v5 can take an altitude. v5 stock airports appear to have the altitude of these set to the airport reference altitude. Projects created from an earlier version currently have these set to zero which could result in canyons. The likely fix is for ADE to automatically set zero altitudes to the reference altitude on loading. Be aware that these are AMSL as far as I can tell. Only the new texi sign has the facility to set AGL.

ADE now hides these properties unless the airport sloped property is set to true.

[FIXED 7417] NOT POSSIBLE TO EDIT THE ALTITUDE FOR ILS ELEMENTS IN v5

The altitude property for ILS, DME and Glideslope are not editable in ADE. These need to be edited for sloping runways. A workaround is to change the altitudes using the Raw Data View which needs a ProKey. Fix is to make the altitude of ILS elements editable in ADE for P3D v5

This is now done

[FIXED 7422] COMPILER ERROR WITH NEW APPROACH TYPE

v5 introduces a new approach type, TACAN (error reports -4), ADE now handles that.

[FIXED 7417] NEW TERRAIN AIRPORT BACKGROUND TYPES

Several new airport background types need to be added to the land class functions in ADE

These are implemented but do not appear to work. They need testing. The new types are

Airport_Backgrounds_Flatten_ExcludeAutoGen_Smooth
Airport_Backgrounds_Flatten_MaskClassMap_ExcludeAutoGen_Smooth
Airport_Backgrounds_Flatten_MaskClassMap_Smooth
Airport_Backgrounds_Flatten_Smooth

This issue was missing entries in the terrain.cfg file. Regenerating the file added them and the new background types work

[TESTING NEXT UPDATE] UNRELIABLE PROJECT SAVE AS BEHAVIOR

In some case using Save As appears to save the project but fails to do so.

Non replicable by me at this time - still testing

Seems to be something to do with project file sizes but the files are not that big. Implemented extra error checking for save

Found another cause of this where a project file contains some elements that ADE can't save - for example an invalid surface type

[FIXED 7439] P35 SLOPED PROPERTIES CAN GET INTO XML FOR EARLIER VERSIONS

If a project file is opened in v5 and subsequently opened and compiled in an earlier version then there are obvious compiler errors. This is a self evident issue but can be fixed to reduce the risk of v4 and earlier project files being irreparably compromised

[DONE 7439] EDIT START ALTITUDES FOR SLOPED AIRPORTS

Start altitudes are locked to the airport reference altitude for flat airports but these need to be changed to match the terrain for sloped airports

This is in testing

[UPDATED 7475] DISPLAY TAXINAME INDEX

Not a bug as such but airports can have multiple taxi designators with the same name. The difference is in the index which is not visible. Added index to taxi path tooltip and taxi designator list

[FIXED 7475] HIGH PARKING GATE NUMBERS DECOMPILED NEGATIVE

This is a very old bug which appears to go back to the start of ADE. Parking Gate numbers can go up to 3999 but ADE decompiles high numbers as negative which causes a compiler error. This has never been reported before to my recollection. The code has been modified and the fix wil be in the next update
