  1. Jonathan, you're correct, this is how the FMC in the sim works. If you enter wind info into one waypoint, this info will propagate into remaining enroute wp's. Of course, you can finetune every single waypoint afterwards to suit your needs if you like. What I usually do for shorter trips, is to enter average winds info from Active Sky into 'CRZ WIND' at the 'PERF INIT' page, and eventually insert greater changes for specific waypoints if needed. On longer trips, I tend enter as much info as possible from AS into RTE DATA, as winds changes can be quite significant on longer trips. It take some time, but I like to get as real as possible, that's my way to do it. Lazy real world drivers have ACARS to do the dirty work for them :)

    Search for 'ttcomp20.zip' and the update 'ttcomp21.zip' in the library.

    FMC Waypoint Question

    As the FMC do not allow an entry of the overfly command, you may also try to cheat a little to get the desired effect while you are in flight. You do this by entering an ATW (Along Track Waypoint) in the FMC very close to the waypoint in question.Downselect HOLLY to the scratchpad, then enter HOLLY/0.1, then click on HOLLY again. This will create a waypoint 0.1NM after HOLLY and will force the aircraft to wait with the turn. You can also try HOLLY/-0.1, then the new wp will be created just before HOLLY.Bear in mind that I'm not familiar with this exact procedure at Gatwick, so you may try with other settings to get the desired effect.
  4. Hi RichardI have tested CIV4H at EBBR. and it must be something wrong in the source data here. When heading 277 (after reaching 1700ft) there's no way you can intercept the BUB 224 radial, that's a complete different direction. So I assume it must be intercepting radial 224 from CIV. Then the string will be something like this according to the chart:SID CIV4H RNW 07L TRK 066 UNTIL 1700 TRK 277 INTERCEPT RADIAL 044 FROM NAVAID CIV NAVAID CIVorSID CIV4H RNW 07L TRK 066 UNTIL 1700 TRK 277 INTERCEPT RADIAL 244 TO NAVAID CIV NAVAID CIVEDIT: I see that many others came to the same conclusion below, didn't update the browser after testing/posting
  5. I can also highly recommend kaitak98 scenery by Jim Vile available in the library as kaitak98.zip. It's without any framerate hogging eye-candy's, easy on framerate. User aircrafts will have all approach options through ATC and GPS under both VMC and IMC conditions too.Jim has even coded and compiled the scenery so that AI aircrafts will follow the full IGS/LDA Precision Approach and operate under both VMC and IMC airport conditions for AI Planes.The zip also include charts, AI flight plans, simple mesh files and an option to remove VHHH. Remember to read the documentation carefully.Together with Steve's SID/STAR data in this thread, fire up your PMDG 747 and be ready for some challenging approaches!

    EHAM Rnwy. Probs.???

    >The only way you can fly EHAM is to buy and use the addon scenery>by Cloud 9. I just avoid the airport.>>AnthonyOf course not. There are enough freeware alternatives available if you don't want to go payware. But you definetively need a good Afcad file. The easiest and cheapest way is to download a decent Afcad or freeware scenery at Avsim. Do a search in the library for Jim Vile or Peter Bos. They have compiled quality Afcad sceneries for EHAM. I just did an succesfull approach into 18R at EHAM with the 737 with one of these.

    Help setting SIDS.

    Hi Qas.As Mats says, you need to have charts for departure to determine which SID to choose. There are several SIDs for each runway depending on the direction for your flight. The BPK sids (in this case BPK6G as you are at 27L) are used more for east/northbound flight (as via airways M185 and L620). BPK6G is definetively not good for southbound to LEBL as you tried. Try instead MID3G or SAM2G for southbound flights from 27L to an appropriate airway from the procedure end at Midhurst (MID) or Southampton (SAM). And for the record, the procedure for EGLL made by Simon Butler is of top quality and always up to date (and for that matter all of his proedure files).I will also recommend Eurocontrol for all European charts. For UK you also have an option at http://www.ais.org.uk/

    FMC gobbledygook

    Hmm, strange, I remeber there was something with the decimals in the NDB frequencies in 0610, but I can't say I have seen this. Sorry I can't help you more but here's is how this page is for me with 0612 anyway:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/162711.jpgEDIT: FYI, I did a quick check with the 0611 files installed, and I didn't get those strange text strings.

    ABEAM function

    Pedro,to get the FMC to draw a green line you have to insert a radial on the FIX page. The FMC will also then calculate the distance to your route. You can also insert this point into your flightplan if needed. In the picture below you can see what I mean. On LSK2R and 3R I have inserted two differnt radials and also auto-generated the abeam point by clicking on LSK5R. I think the FMC will generate the closest point when clicking on ABEAM both radial and dist, at least it does here in the sim. http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/162270.jpgHere's just the ABEAM point in the flightplan:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/162271.jpgThis works exactly the same in the 747 (sim, that is:))
  10. Guys, remember that VTBS must be present in the AIRAC files (the data file present in ...(FS9)/FMCPWP/Navdata/wpNavAPT.txt) in order to show up regardless of which prosedure file you have. Jackson (or whatever your name is), if you have the current procedure file, this may look like you don't have an AIRAC with VTBS in it. As suggested, check the IDENT page for which airac cycle you have.

    STAR problem at EGSS

    I would recommend you to use the procedure file for EGSS from Navdata written by Simon Butler. This file is also up-to-date and working with current AIRAC cycle. All Simon's files are of high quality and always checked and updated.
  12. You can find charts for VTBS here: http://www.aerothai.co.th/thai/orat/2_operation.php

    No arrivals available for UUEE

    AIRAC 0605 version is obviously missing quite an amount of waypoints around. As Richard Stefan has stated we may consider this as a test version until everything is up and running again. Now for UUEE you may go back to AIRAC 0513 as this was the last stable version, OR you could d/l the earlier version 1 of the UUEE procedures(my own) at Navdata, as it still works with 0605(I havent't updated it after the other guy overwrote it). I guess these issues will be present in 0606 also as it is already done, and Richard is on holiday. But I'm sure he will sort these things out sooner or later, he's making a wonderful service for us simmers.
  14. Owen, there is an export module available for PMDG at the FSNav site. This will export your flightplans directly to rte format from FSNavigator(the doc says).

    Error message in FMC

    Hi MartinI guess you have the KMCO file by Dan Downs. If you open the file in Notepad, you'll find instructions on how to get this to work. You have to edit and add some info into the wpNavAID.txt. Then KMCO will be fine in the FMC. I guess this info will be included when a new AIRAC arrives.You probably know this, but in order to actually use the new runways and get the NAV radios to work, you must have an add-on scenery or Afcad file reflecting the current rwy's and navaid info.
