it is terrific and the developer is creative, especially for a 1 person show so far and a newer creation.  Great stuff

1.3.4 of this has been released and includes the ability to have multiple careers running, which is nice. The back-end has also switched to using an SQLite database and it ships the default MSFS scenery loaded rather than relying on SkyVector so it better matches what's in your sim.

(It's just the stock database, it doesn't actually read your scenery library.  But it uses the same format for the airports table that Little Navmap uses and I've made a tool to readily import your LNM scenery database into NeoFly for anyone who's interested.)

Now you have my attention 🙂

Is it a script or an executable you created here? I would be really interested, because I have tons of Addon Airfields which are not part of the default sim and it would be great to also have missions from them 🙂

Both.  It's a python script, but I also packed it into an exe for folks who don't have python installed.

Code is here:  https://github.com/kaosfere/nftools

Zip with the exe: https://github.com/kaosfere/nftools/releases/download/nfimport-0.1/nftools-0.1.zip

Assuming you have Little Navmap storing its database in the stock location you can just drop that in your Neofly directory and run it from the command line.    If you want to use a different database, or have it in a different location, there are some additional arguments described in the readme.

Hey, I just tried it and it worked like a charm. This is super easy. As you wrote in the instructions, I put it into the NeoFly directory and ran it without any parameters. It found my LNM Database and did the import.

The first Airfield I searched for in NeoFly made it crash though. But these might be very special places. It is not a problem, although I do not know how to debug this. If I cry at Neolords place it would be unfair, because I tampered with the Database now. crying here is unfair too, because your tool worked fine 🙂

I think I came across a tool recently which can open sqlite DBs. I think I should have a look at the exact line for that Airfield(s) which make it crash. I am sure there is some information missing that the add-on creator never included in his BGL or something like that.

I would give you a link to the downloads, but I think I got it somewhere from the flightsimulator.com forums. I will try to dig it up if you want to try for yourself. The Airfields are CAB1 - Saturday Creek Cabin and CAB2 - Kruzof Island from "quelcertoleo", right around the corner at PAJN (Juneau).

Again, this is not really a problem. Thinking about the luck I have with these things, out of 37.000 Airfields, these are probably the only 2 that make NF crash 🙂

Edit: I used DB Browser for SQLite and could not spot anything odd for CAB1 and CAB2. NF even created entries in the Mission table in the DB... I guess I'll hop over to Discord and ask NeoLord if there is a way to debug this 🙂

 

Thank you very much again for your tool! There's no point adding more airfields if I can not use them for the missions, but now I can 👍

 

Edit #2: I think I figured it out. NF crashes when it tries to populate the AircraftMarket table. The Airfields causing the problems had a runwaylength of 3. It seems it needs to be at least 500 for NF to find suitable Aircraft for the Airfield and populate the AircraftMarket table then. Instead of not creating any planes on the market, it seems to crash. I put this into the bug-reports over at the NF Discord.

Having an issue with v1.4. When I run setup I get an error, "Application download did not succeed." Anyone else get this? I am running it as admin so it should work...

They have this in their FAQ on Discord:

Quote

I get an error "Application download did not succeed" - See picture below What can I do?
- Try unzipping the file with 7ZIP. Using other tools seem to be corrupting the file.
If using 7ZIP does not work, we have a backup for you: NeoFly 1.4 without the auto-updater. 

 

I did not install 1.4 because I'm waiting for 2.0 tomorrow, so I didn't get this error.

You have to unzip all the files in a temp folder before launching the setup.

Uh how would I otherwise do it? Ofc I unzip it before launching it. 

Windows allows you to browse zip files as if they were folders... so I thought that was the issue.

Sorry to dig up old thread but I've been having a play around with this and I'm quite impressed so far.  Its freeware so I thought worth a punt!  I'm getting a bit bored just aimlessly flying from A to B so this adds a little purpose and sends me off in directions I wouldn't have considered before.
