Things missing in FSX

  • Transition Altitudes vary at least per country, it is not 10000' all over the world
  • Ability to plug in customized kneeboard pages which is typically used by Virtual Airlines
  • Panel editor
  • Allow users to edit the airport information. In most countries the City field is just totally wrong or not grouped by state/province. This should be possible without creating AFCAD for the whole world.
 
Hi Folks

  • Ability to plug in customized kneeboard pages which is typically used by Virtual Airlines
AFAIK this was a security consideration.
You should be able to workaround using an iframe.

  • Allow users to edit the airport information.

Users can edit the airport information.

State data was only incorporated for USA, Canada, and Australian airports.
I think this was probably due to internationalistion issues,
Spellings would vary enormously, and possibly offend nationals of those countries.

I can provide a corrected dataset, (to ISO 3166 standard),
for -
- most of the world's airports,
or
- individual country's airports,
incorporating the state/province/territory data as required, (English spellings only).

Collated whilst creating the Visit Series rewards packages.

Unfortunately no matter what,
you'd still have to edit & release any modified AFX's, (AFCADs).

And how do I do that? I would like to correct the Panama airports so that they are grouped by City and State/Province rather than all listed as one.
 
Hi Folks

lordofwings -
Please find attached a CSV format export
of the 28 FSX default Panamamanian airports,
incorporating their appropriate State data.

Just add the State data to the AFXs, (using ADE).
FSX will then include the State data in the Go To Airports listing, etc.
