  1. Hi Hans I use Little Map as well as PFPX. I have since found that Little Map "Save As" FLP which does work properly and its free! Regards Ray
  2. Hi Did a test by completing a plan in the CRJ without SID, STAR, transition and without a departing runway or arriving runway. As would be expected to see in a "standard" company route. Saved it from the sim OK without warning but it would not load. I did a test where the departing runway was defined plus all the legs but not SID, STAR, Transition or arrival runway defined. I put a direct to the first waypoint and a direct from my last waypoint to the destination AD, This saved and loaded OK. This is as close to that "standard" company route that I could get as the CRJ had to have a departing runway defined. The plain text of the route ended up as EDDF DCT TOBAK N858 SWALM T201 TAMEB T278 RUDAK DCT EDDT Of course, all of this only works because I planned the flights inside the CRJ rather than an external flight planner like PFPX. As the CRJ uses coordinates for its directs I suspect that PFPX and similar programs will struggle with creating an acceptable flight plan like this. So my question is, are there any flightplan programs that can create a valid "company route" type flight plan for the CRJ. Regards Ray
  3. Hi Hans This is a CRJ flightplan produced by PFPX. As it is a company route they are normally saved without SID, STARS or transitions as any of those could be changed at any time before the flight and also during the flight. Are you saying that it's mandatory to have SIDS, STARS and transitions to enable a flightplan to be loaded? Ray
  4. Yes. that's the correct route and the plan produced by PFPX. It doesn't contain the performance items as, strictly speaking, the flight plan should only contain the actual route with no SID or STAR. The format follows that described in the documentation. I've also chosen not to load performance data from the flight plan fie as in the documentation - "The PerfData section will only be used if “Load PERF INIT Data with Flightplan” is enabled on the Options page in CRJ Manager. Otherwise it will be ignored when the route is loaded." This is more realistic. The route is valid and the CDU states that it is loaded, but other than the departure and destination, it does not load as I believe it should. Ray System: Windows 10 Pro CRJ version 1.2.2.3 P3D V4.3
  5. Hi Created route/flightplan with PFPX and exported to CRJ using their export function. Loaded the route/flightplan and EXEC The CDU did display the message Flighplan Loaded but no legs appear. The flightplan content is - [CoRte] ArptDep=EDDF ArptArr=EDDT RwyDep=EDDF25C RwyArr=EDDT26R Airway1=N858 Airway1FROM=TOBAK Airway1TO=SWALM Airway2=T201 Airway2FROM=SWALM Airway2TO=TAMEB Airway3=T278 Airway3FROM=TAMEB Airway3TO=RUDAK Ray

    Mega Airport Frankfurt v2 VAS Use

    Tried that but it didn't seem to have any effect on VAS. I tested FlyTampa LOWW scenery with the PMDG 777-300 and that only gets to 2,600,xxx even with a raised texture of 2048 instead of the default 1024. I think I'll just wait for the update as at current although the scenery looks great it is unusable and making changes to the FSX.cfg is also not having any material effect on this scenery.

    Mega Airport Frankfurt v2 VAS Use

    So, experienced my first OOM using the new EDDF. As a base test I loaded FSX twice - once at EDDF V2.0 and once EGLL (UK2000), both using AS Airbus 319 The VAS usage amounted to 3,250,xxx for EDDF and 2,673,xxx for EGLL. I'm only using textures set at 1024 and LOD at 4.5. Is there anything in EDDF that I can switch off to enable me to use the addon? Ray
