default ATC lost approaches

Recommended Posts


At some point with my addon installations, the default ATC lost it's ability to assign many approaches at several I've tested.  The ATIS says visual approaches during 1/2 mile visiblity and when the player chooses "request another approach" option inside the ATC window, all that is listed are visual appraoches.

I know I installed the FSX database update from and the lastest magnetic deviation file too at some point.

What could kill the default ATC abiltiy to assign instrument approaches?

FAQ says that using the option "Alternate airport files" removes the default approach procedures (e.g. STARs), but ILS frequencies are still available.

Not sure if default ATC knows how to tell you to use an instrument approach after this, e.g. if it needs to know the ILS transition even if not using a STAR.
