DB re-scan community/custom folder only?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to do a rescan of a specific folder (e.g. community folder) instead of doing a full DB scan including the MSFS base scenery?
It is more frequent to custom add/remove an airports (payware / freeware) during daily use, then Updating the SIM.
doing a full scan takes good few minutes to complete when all you did was adding/removing one airport at your community folder. why should I rescan all the MSFS base scenery again when those has not changed?

I know you can include / exclude a custom folder(s) to the scan in settings, but I couldn't find anywhere to instruct LNM to scan only changes to that folder.
I mainly looking into "community" folder only changes / scanning

Sorry, no. This is not doable due to too many dependencies between airports and navaids.

I'd rather exclude folders you don't need in LNM options on page "Scenery Library Database".
Also there is no need to re-scan after adding an airport. Worst case you get a different apron and taxiway layout but you can still use it for flight planning.

Also exclude the MSFS scenery folders Community and Official from anti-virus scanning. This usually speeds things up a lot. Same for the LNM database folder C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\ABarthel\little_navmap_db .

That is the thing, I mainly rescan because I need the Apron information for gates, etc. not so much for the flight planning
