Moving Map For XP11 ??

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found a moving map that works over a network in XP11?

Some people insist on saying that Plan-G works, but thats ONLY true if there's already a database built from XP10

Has anyone been able to get this map to work in XP11? (See link above). I keep getting an error that "more than one instance of XP is running" (when it is clearly not).

Works fine for me in 11. I use it in a standard setup (map and X-Plane on the same machine, no other X-Plane oder map instances on this machine or in the network).

Take a look here, I use this in XP10, it's good and it's free!

This looks interesting.  Questions:

1. Does this have any impact on FPS?

2. This can be run on a single computer as a pop-up?

3.  How clear are the maps and charts on the device?

4. Does this interfere in any way with the default X-Plane 11 GNS 530?

hmmm, I'm going to try it again this evening. Besides entering your computer's IP address and the data send port (49003) did you change any other ports or settings?

I have the FS-FlightControl. It's a bit pricey but well worth every cent. It's excellent for flight-planning with sids and stars, have a great map and a lot of features. You can use it both on your sim PC or networked. I'm using it on the same PC as the sim, but can't see any loss in FPS. Best of all, it works both on FSX-SE, FSX, Prepa3d and XP11. From the same install! So going from XP to FSX and back is no problem. You just start it up and click on the actual alternative you are running.

Q8 on youtube has a video published where he shows the features. Here:

Did I see this correct that when setting up a flightplan with fs flightcontrol that you can have it automatically select the correct star? Also noticed you have to select the airways during the route calculation but that is not automatic and you must know which one to pick, correct?

Nope, I did everything as decribed in the instructions.  You could try a different browser or check your firewall settings. I use Firefox and no firewall or security software which would control or block network traffic.

Here is how I create a flight plan in FS-FlightControl:

1. Go to Flightplan menu

2. In the box to the right: check "Use SIDs/STARs

3. Click if you want high or low airways or none

4. Click on: departure airport and then runway for T/O.

5. Click on: arrival airport and then runway for landing

6. Click on: Calculate Airway Route

7. Accept OK for automatic sids and stars.

8. Voilá. 

It takes around 10-15 sek if you check the weather for runways before you start the planning.

Then you can save it either in the program itself or export it as a .fms-file to Xplane.

There is a lot of nice features in FS-FlightControl. You can rightclick on an airport on the map and visually see how sids and stars goes from the runways. It's easy to delete or add waypoints in the ready flightplan if you want to edit before flight. And when you go to the map there is a useful "Height"-map if you are flying over mountains to find out the correct altitude.

I can go on even more with all the features. But why not test the trial?

That sounds like the answer to what I have been looking for. The automatic sid and star selection is something no other flightplanner has I believe.

Hello,

I've heard that the developer of efass recently passed away. I don't know if it's true. Would be very sad for his family and a loss for our community.

Got it working last night. I was entering my computer's IP address that's setup statically in my router (192.168.x.x). That is supposed to work but was giving me errors. I tried the 127.0.0.1 address and it worked. Also pulled up the map on my networked laptop and could watch my plane's flight path while sitting downstairs. Pretty cool app.

@janbergwall01: Thank you for the heads-up on FS-Flight Control. I have installed it (trial version) and connected it to my X-Plane installation.

But how do I now connect it to my FSX installation on the same PC?

Start up FS-FlightControl.

Go to the "Settings" menu.

Up to the left, click on "Simulator Related Settings" box.

Then click on "Simulator" in the top menu.

Then click "Create New Simulator" box.

Then follow the procedure. (Always run "Build database" for new stuff in the simulators)

When all is done and FSX is up and running, you may notice that FS-FlightControl is looking for X-Plane to connect. Up in the right corner, right click on "Connecting to X-Plane/Disconnected" and choose FSX.

When in doubt, use the question-mark.

I'm using it for X-plane 11 all the time. Especially for flight-plan creation and the moving map. I admit it takes some time to find the ways in the program, but after a while or two, you discover how great it is. I was using EFB by AivlaSoft for many years in FSX before I converted to X-plane and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. FS-FlightControl is on that level and has much more features that actually bring more to the simming than many high-level add-ons do together.

One thing: By right-clicking everywhere, you discover new things. For example: Right-click in the map on an airport and you find out SIDs/STARs you can try out, weather conditions and general info for the airport in question and much more. Same goes for VORs, NDBs etc.

It must be great for IVAO, Vatsim and PilotEdge pilots, as you have full cover in the moving map of ATCs, Airspaces and of course other fellow pilots moving on the map.

Remember that the X-plane module is still in Beta! Still it works like a charm and is updated all the time. Actually got an update today!

The only thing I don't like is the black menu design, but I can live with that :). Maybe I can change it but haven't discovered it yet.

Regards,
