New 'addict' to ADE

#1
Hi Jon

Discovered your ADE a couple of days ago and I'm delighted with it. Things had got so bad with manually having to alter airports through the SDK that I've been seriously looking into learning programming to do exactly what you have done. My heart felt thanks and congratulations on what looks like a good substitute for 'AFCAD' and one that I'm growing to love.
As it's a work in progress I won't burden you with a wishlist but there is one little thing that I've noticed which I haven't seen anybody comment on. When I first saved an airport it saved in the addon scenery/scenery folder along with an .xml file, all fairly standard. Subsequent editing and saving resulted in no changeto the airport which prompted a little investigation. Ultimately I found that the save could only be effected by deleting the .xml file which was generated after each save. Not a big problem but one which you may be able to throw some light on when (if) you have some spare moments.
All the best and I look forward to any enhancements.

correct positon of airport with photo scenery

hi there i have only just installed the airport design editor software but i have already managed to compile an airport that is not built into fsx the only problem i have is correctly locating it on the photographic scenery that i have installed is there a way that an area of either google earth or virtual earth or even better a screen shot of the area using fsx itself can be placed on the editing screen for correct alignment and sizing of runways etc when drawn, thanks for a really good and easy programme that us plebs can use, Colin
