I've noticed that more and more flight plans are starting to appear on the site that the developer catagorizes as FSX Flight Plans. There was a new file today that indicated the FP was compiled using the MRAI compiler. This would suggest the file was an FS9 FP. There have been other FP files in the FSX category that didn't say anything about how the FP was produced.Here's my observation: In my opinion, in order for an FP to be considered an FSX file, three operations should be performed on the raw text files. First, the flightplans.txt file must include the new FSX airport designations. Second, the FP must have the flight day shifted to meet the new FSX requirements. (NOTE: There is a utilty on the PAI site that accomplishes these two tasks) Third, the airports.txt file should contain the new FSX airport codes. (Note: There is also a file on the PAI site that contains all the new airport codes. You can add these to your own airports.txt file)I guess what I'm suggesting is that AVSIM have some sort of certification for FSX flight plan uploads that tells the user the above actions have been accomplished. If developers do not follow these procedures I think there will be some surprises among the user community as to the viability of their AI environment. Perhaps a check box could be added to the upload screen and a standard statement added to the file description automatically.Thanksfb
