• 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 Can not save my edit and add a second leg with a new airport

Hi Don, I fear there is a second bug.
If I have created a new airport and try to make a new flight plan with this airport I come until the 'save' my first leg. This doesn't work because the 'save' button is greyed out. See attachment.
Comment: If I try to click in the white blank area in the middle, a error message says, there was a previous wrong input. Ignoring this the 'Add Leg' button becomes 'not greyed out' and I can add my next leg. Now the flight plan works.
This could be a possibility but I think this wouldn't be the right way. This problem is only with a new created airport!

You need to enter a ETA. Since the distance is 0 and duration is 0. AIFP can't calculate a ETA.

Thank you Don. Strange, I never had to put something at ETA. As I said this problem is only with a new created airport. Using a stockairport or an other (not new created) airport for a short 'roundflight' automatically the Duration square changes from 0.00 to 0.19 and the ETA from 0 to 00.19.
But I can naturally in the future in such cases input 00:19.

I've done a quick check. This situation only arises with airports that have been entered manually, as with OGGW. It will be fixed.

Thank you again.
As I told you, I couldn't enter the new created manually, only by the Find/Collect process. But I think this would be the same.

I have just posted Development Release 3.2.20(a) to http://stuff4fs.com.

The underlying issue, which has been there for a very long time, was that if operating in other than Local Time mode (which you were), flight duration and ETA was not calculated unless the UTC offset was known - even though the UTC offset was not required in that mode - but no error message was issued.

With your new OGGW, you specified the country as "USA". However, all stock airports in the USA use "United States" as the country name. Hence, you created a new country in the airports database for which no UTC offset was available.

The fix applied corrects the basic error. However, I suggest you edit your airport and specify the country as "United States".

Very interesting. I will change my USA-country to United States. And I thank you for your efforts.
