No, you can have spaces. I don't know what the limit is, but I'd avoid using negative numbers, pi, or anything larger than 32767.Project AI has provided a suggested numbering scheme based on Airline Names. It's the only proposed standard I've seen.

Captain,Seems I was not clear with my question.By "sequential" I meant if the numbering has to be AC#1 followed by AC#2 followed by AC#3 and so on, as opposed to AC#1 followed by AC#203 followed by AC#1005 followed by AC#2.Stamatis

Hi Stamatis,The AC# is not sequential. You can give any number.They must be the same you use in the flightplan.No problem if you step from AC#36 to AC#100 or so.If you follow it with a lower number. Just try it out.Regards,Cees

I rearranged some of the lines in my aircraft.txt file and re-ran Tcompiler. No problem. I suspect that if you run T-DE-compiler it might put things back in order again, but I haven't tried that.Personally, I think it's just easier to keep them in order so I can find them quickly when adding new flightplans. On the other hand, I intentionally leave gaps which I fill in when a new aircraft becomes available so I can keep my aircraft organized, either by airline or by type.

it seems numbers must be sequential but you can let "holes"And I thought we just agreed that numbering does not need to be sequential :-)Stamatis
