Notes

This release contains small bugfixes, new keyboard shortcuts, enabled IVAO online network, AviTab export and more flight plan export formats.

Changes from Release 2.2.3 to 2.2.4

Flight Plan Export

  • Added saving and loading of FlightGear XML flight plans (.fgfp) also covering SID and STAR. #361
  • MDX flight plan export for Leonardo Maddog X added. #232
  • Added RTE flight plan export for QualityWings aircraft. #335
  • Export for AivlaSoft EFB (.efbr version 1 - currently no SID and STAR). #226
  • Added saving of PNG or JPG map images for AviTab to file menu. Includes JSON calibration file. #310
  • Added flight plan export for online networks including dialog for additional data. #317 (vPilot, VFP) and #176 (IVAP and X-IVAP, FPL)
  • Added FPL flight plan export for FeelThere aircraft. #206
  • New flight plan export for Level-D (.rte). #206
  • Adapted flight plan file type detection to new formats and improved it for drag and drop loading. Files are now accepted for dropping/loading independent of file extension.
  • Now automatically suggesting a numbered filename if file already exists when exporting or using Save as. Same for aircraft performance files.
  • Reorganized export flight plan menu items into categories (Aircraft, Online, etc.) for better overview.
  • Changed default export folder for aircraft flight plan formats to use simulator base folder instead of Documents.

Online Networks

  • Enabled IVAO online network support based on mirror on www.littlenavmap.org. #244
  • Now displaying flight simulator type in information window for online network clients.

Help

Map

  • Fixed issue where MORA data was displayed only with Navigraph data enabled. Now always shown independent of selection. #331
  • Changed taxiway color for better visibility with light backgrounds.
  • Added taxiway colors and pens to little_navmap_mapstyle.ini to allow configuration.
  • Logbook userpoint icon now displayed using an offset from airport icon to avoid covering the airport symbol. Hotspot of logbook userpoint is now top left of the symbol. #366
  • Changed AI/multiplayer aircraft on ground to appear earlier when zooming in.
  • Now disabling text in MORA display if it gets too small to avoid garbled up display.
  • Now hiding the scalebar when saving map images. Scale bar is now only included when printing.
  • Fixed several display issues with procedure legs.

Flight Plan and Performance

  • Fixed issue where selecting a parking position as departure resulted in zero cruising altitude in flight plan (FSX/P3D .pln).
  • Now disabling aircraft performance collection when sim is paused or replaying (replay only detected on X-Plane).
  • Relaxed maximum distance requirements for waypoints in route string parser.
    Airports are now always used independent of distance to previous waypoint. This allows to build plans like EDDF KORD EDDM.
    #376
  • Fixed display and conversion issues in aircraft performance when using metric units.
  • Vertical descent speed, descent speed and descent rule of thumb now displayed correctly.
  • Fixed route description parser to ignore runway designations attached to airport like USSS/08R ... ZMUB1200/33.
  • Route description parser can now read long SID and STAR names like ENVA UTUNA1A vs. ENVA UTUN1A.

Scenery Library

  • Airports with open helipads and closed runways are now considered open.
  • Now considering helipads for rating calculation for airports.
  • Fixed issue with error messages when loading OpenAIR files with missing airspace class. Now omitting only the invalid airspaces instead of the whole file.
  • Now looking for registry keys in a case insensitive manner to avoid problems where FSX or P3D could not be found.

User Interface

  • Added function key shortcuts in menu Window -> Shortcuts to have quick access to search, flight plan, map and more. #364
  • Added shortcuts to switch between styles Fusion (Shift+F2) and Night (Shift+F3).
  • Added links to airport folder Documents/Little Navmap Files/ICAO for airport information. Links to all files in the related folder are shown if the path exists for an airport with the given ICAO ident. The path is locale sensitive, e.g. in German Dokumente/Little Navmap Dateien/ICAO. This depends on completeness of the translation. Try both variants (Files vs. your system language) if in doubt. Clicking on a link opens the file in the default editor or viewer of the system.
  • Fixed wrong test in options dialog for online status.txt file. Now looking for the correct values to verify the file or download.
  • Default folder is now the simulator base path when selecting exclusions in the options dialog on tab Scenery Library Database.
  • Fixed issue where date display used 12 hour time without AM/PM indicator. Now always using 24 hour time for UTC time display.
  • Moved all context menus a few pixels off the cursor to avoid accidental selection of first entry on touchpads or some mice.
  • Changed lengthy prefix for custom map themes to * in the drop down box on the toolbar.
  • Limited text length for files and paths in scenery loading dialog to avoid growing the progress dialog too large.

Weather

  • Fixed default NOAA and VATSIM weather URLs to use HTTPS/SSL.
  • Added migration code to convert NOAA weather URL to use SSL/HTTPS if user left URL unchanged.
  • Made METAR parser more tolerant for invalid temperature values not separated by a /.
  • Fixed issues with missing weather updates when switching airport weather.

Configuration

  • Now reading environment variable LNM_RENDERER for potential fixes on crashes or graphic problems.
    To use desktop OpenGL renderer set it to desktop.
    Use Angle to DirectX adapter for rendering: angle.
    To use the software renderer set it to software.
  • Added [Options] / PixmapCache allowing to change pixmap cache size as a potential fix for disappearing icons.
  • Added preliminary options for manual application of user interface font configuration in settings. #373. Example:
    [Options]
    GuiFontFamily=FONTNAME
    GuiFontFile=FILE.ttf (Optional)
    GuiFontPixelSize=12 (Optional)
  • [Options] / Language override in settings file now fixed for online help and legend loading.

related from Little Xpconnect version 1.0.14

  • Fixed issue with AI detection where aircraft remained on map moving along with the user aircraft after deleting AI in simulator.
  • Now linking Xpconnect statically to Qt to avoid plugin conflicts with libaries in Linux.

See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions.

Here is a quick explanation for the change "Added links to airport folder Documents/Little Navmap Files/ICAO for airport information. Links to all files in the related folder are shown if the path exists for an airport with the given ICAO ident. The path is locale sensitive, e.g. in German Dokumente/Little Navmap Dateien/ICAO. This depends on completeness of the translation. Try both variants (Files vs. your system language) if in doubt. Clicking on a link opens the file in the default editor or viewer of the system. "

Another new feature hidden in the menus. E.g. quickly jump to the airport search and activate the ICAO search field by hitting F4.

Added function key shortcuts in menu Window -> Shortcuts to have quick access to search, flight plan, map and more.

Hi, Alex. First of all, a huge thank-you for your great software. Just discovered it a couple of weeks ago and I am still on shock. Awesome. Needless to say that I will donate a fair amount asap for your effort in the past, your attention in the present and to encourage you to keep on for the future. 

Ok. I have updated to 2.2.4 just today and I am having some problems with IVAO. I can see the orange planes online and myself (duplicated, I know) but they do not update position and ATC online active position circles are not visible eventhough the online Air Space button is activated. I have been trying hard but cannot figure out what I am doing wrong (I have read the manual several times already). 

Thanks for your help in advance.

No need to have duplicated aircraft. LNM will remove the duplicates if your callsign on the network and your aircraft registration match (Online Networks).

Every three minutes only due to limitations of this "whazzup" file thingy.

Are you sure that all related airspace categories are enabled on the toolbar (ICAO, FIR, ..., OTR, ...)? Did you zoom in close enough?

Can you send me a screenshot of the situation?

After updating I went to Scenery Library - Load Scenery Library ... and the only option in the Simulator drop-down box is X-Plane 11, no P3D or FSX. 

i dearly love your program. It the best flight planner I’ve used by far!

Hi Gerry,

something is missing or not right in the registry.

For P3D LNM is looking for
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lockheed Martin\Prepar3D v4\AppPath
and FSX
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator\10.0\AppPath

The value of the last entry AppPath has to exist.

Good afternoon,

Is it just me or do we now loose all the waypoints when converting from pfpx to Garmin GFP? Since updating this has been occurring when opening up into the GTN750. No waypoints at all however they show in pfpx and little nav map perfectly. It was working great until update.

Cheers

Ben

Hi Ben,

no idea about PFPX. Do you loose waypoints when exporting from LNM? Can you attach an example?

Yes mate. Imports into LNM from pfpx with waypoints fine. Its the export from LNM to the gtn750 it looses them all. Just has departure and arrival airports and locked in the middle. Tried numerous including big and small routes and still the same. Will post a screenshot a bit later when I get home.

Please attach the flight plans as exported from LNM.

Maybe it's AIRAC differences between LNM, simulator and GTN. That's not fixable.

hi,

and thank you very much indeed for this great software.

I am eagerly waiting to test the new features (expecially the Aircraft Performance Collection).

if you don't mind, I'd like to add a couple of suggestions for the future releases:

  • insert holdings (expecially on IAPs, but also un SIDs and STARs) hence adding the holding time to the flightplan
  • plan and insert a full route/STAR/approach to the Alternate (it would be great to have more than one, as in real life!)

I have sent a little money as a token of my appreciation for your very valuable efforts

ciao,
Erasmo

Hi Erasmo,

You can place holdings anywhere along the flight plan but these are display objects for guidance and not a part of the flight plan. Allowing to add holdings or modify the procedures in any way would be a huge effort.

You can already add as many alternates as you want to a flight plan.

Adding STAR and approaches to the alternate legs would be also a big effort, sorry. For now you have to create a new plan if procedures and/or the elevation profile are needed.

I'm thinking about a new menu item which allows you to quickly create a new flight plan to a selected alternate airport. This might help a bit.

Sorry, but everything around procedures is incredibly complex to modify. Hope you understand.

Alex
