Format for XPlane .fms flight plan export


Recommended Posts

Hello all.

Does anyone have any idea if/what the export format for the XPlane 11 default flight has been updated to the match XPlane 11 format? Reason I ask is some are having trouble getting the iniBuilds A300 to recognise the default XPlane /fms flight plans. A contributor has suggested the current PFPX might not be exporting the XPlane 11 files in the latest format.

Any ideas?

My personal view is why do we persist with so many different route formats for addons  .txt, .xml. .mdb, .db3, .sql, .pln, .fpl, .rte to name but a few and within those various route layouts and data

 

Why are developers not simply using a common FAA/ICAO format in text ?

 

Indeed there are a few that will uplift an OFP route directly.

 

It is the addon developers that need to keep up with the times and have a common route format and common navigation database. Everyones life would be easier instead of reinventing the wheel 100's of times over.

I am also thinking of the aircraft performance data for both PFPX and TOPCAT. When were thry last updated, for the Lancaster Bomber? lol
