  1. New version (1.4) is out, available here. Changelog is here.
  2. No, not at the moment. What did you have in mind?
  3. Ok, glad that fixed it, I'll look into the localization issue.
  4. You are unzipping everything before trying to run the executable, right? Distance probably isn't possible, it would be a ton of work to go through and add coordinates to all the airports to make the distance calculations with. Next version will let the user to enter any duration, without using the radio buttons. I'm cautious about adding information to the table, because it's already a bit cluttered and difficult to use with a ton of flights displayed. I'll look into it, but if I add the manual duration entry like above you'll be able to find the shortest flights that way.
  5. Primarily various FS9 AI traffic files, actually, which are in turn often based on OAG or other such data. They've had a heavy round of clean-up and filtering and error checking as well to make sure historically correct airports are used and all the destinations are valid, etc. Also, as stated in the first post, I'm in the final stages of putting together some code that will take in a bunch of flights and aircraft types and registrations and auto-assign them, so I can use manually-compiled data from timetables, especially for the older/historical schedules.
  6. For anyone that's having trouble, an alternate download link is here.
  7. Because I don't want to have my email address and full name on a publicly available download.
  8. I don't want to include my email address and full name in a publicly available download, so no. But I can upload it to a different file hosting site if that would help people get it. The site it's at now should work, at least it was trouble-free for me when I was signing up, but if enough people have issues I'll gladly make it somewhere else that doesn't require registration.
  9. That's a good idea, I'll add it in the next version
  10. You mean based on the current system time?
  11. Not my site. Just a convenient upload place. No need to be rude.
  12. Sorry about making a new post if that's a problem- I wasn't able to modify the first post of the old release thread to update it with the new info. This is a utility that can assign give you information about real-world flights to do with your aircraft. There are ~2.3 million flights of the database, and a single click can give you a realistic route, airline, flight number, departure and arrival times, aircraft registration, and more for almost any airliner you can think of. There are historical schedules in the database as well, so now you can get realistic flights and routes to do with your classic aircraft that aren't used as much in the real world any more. A huge range of real-world flights from multiple areas of aviation are included. 707 flights for Pan-Am in the 60's, flying Tristars in and out of Kai Tak in the 80's for Cathay Pacific, all the way up to modern A320/737/777 flights. Download link is here. Changelog: This release is DB-focused, with some new airlines and the usual error and bug fixes in the data. I'm also in the final stages of writing a script that will allow me to add data from more sources, so more complete, accurate, and varied historical schedules are in the pipeline. I'm also looking into allowing users to sort the table by the different column headers, but that's WIP until I figure out a fast, elegant way to take care of it. DB additions: Air Caraibes Su08, Wi09, Su12 Air Iceland Wi10, Su13, Wi14s AnadoluJet Wi09 and Su13 under Turkish Airlines THY Blue Air Su08, Wi11, Su14 Bluebird Cargo Su08 BoraJet Su10 and Su13 Ellinair Su14 Freebird Airlines Su08 and Su12 Hermes Airlines Su13 Mistral Air Su09, Su12, Su14 MNG Airlines Su08, Su09, Su13 OLT Su08, Su10, Su12 Polet Airlines Su08, Su12 Red Wings Su08, Wi12 SkyWork Airlines Wi10, Wi12, Wi14 Small Planet Airlines Su12 and Su14 Travel Service Su10, Wi12, Su14 Turkish Airlines Su13 Turkish Airlines Cargo Su10, Su13 VLM Su08, Wi14 Volotea Su12, Su14 Windrose Airlines Su08, Su13 WOW Air Su12, Su14 XL Airways France Su10, Wi12, Wi14 XL Airways Germany Su10 Yamal Airlines Wi07, Su12, Su13
  13. Version 1.1 is out here. Is it possible to edit the first post so I can update it with the new info and a changelog? It looks like the edit button is removed after a certain amount of time has expired. Should I just start a new topic?
  14. It doesn't work like that. It doesn't matter where mesh scenery is in the library, FS will display the highest-resolution data it can find for a given area.
  15. I'll add them to the list. It would help if you could point me to where I could either find the timetables or a FS9 traffic file.
  16. I'm glad you like it I'd be a little careful about the first point, there's plenty more of the historical schedules to be added, just because something isn't in the database yet doesn't mean it wasn't used. For the second point, yes in theory, although it's a bit involved and there is 10+ minute compilation script that needs to be run to push out a new version of the database. Until I get a workable way for users to do this figured out, what I could do is make a guide about the data format expected, so that anyone who wants to help or really wants a particular schedule can research and make the raw data, and send it along to me to be pushed out in the next database update.
  17. No problem. Garuda is included for 1994 in full, that should be enough for that decade. Any special reason why you need to have it after 95? With this 1.0 release, I have most of the current major airlines up to date an in the desired amounts 2008-2014, with the historical schedules where possible as a bonus. The current goal is to expand the historical flights and clean them up, the ones in there can have some errors. Ansett is one I'll definitely begin including, it's currently in there for 1976 but not much else ATM.
  18. Flightaware only has flights from the last month or so available for free, and I've got "modern" flights going back to at least 2008 for most of the airlines in here. And then it depends on the AIRAC in use, ETOPS restrictions for different aircraft, changing weather and oceanic tracks, etc. Much simpler to just let users find or generate their flight plans. That's because I don't have 90's schedules for Ansett included yet. Although there are a lot of flights in here, it's not as if I magically have every season of every airline in the past 60 years, I have to find and add them manually. I have added historical data where I can, and I am currently working on overhauling and expanding it. For historical schedules, my ultimate goal is to have one set of full schedules for each decade. If there's one you really want me to add, point me towards the timetable and I will see what I can do to include it.
  19. No, I don't think there's a feasible way for me to do that. There are many other flight/route planners that do a much better job than I could hope to, and I feel it's outside the scope of the application. I agree it would be nice, however.
  20. Glad you like it I'll look into sorting the columns by clicking the headers
  21. There's not too many for that at the moment, only BOAC if I recall correctly. I'm looking into adding NWA/UAL/Pan Am if I can find the flightplans for them. No server at the moment. Right now I've been coming out with updates about once a month, I'll make a post here when the next version is out. I'll look into the times, but my big fear is that too many entries will make the table too cluttered and unusable, it's already pretty crowded as it is.
  22. A fifth column might make the table too cluttered, as it would drastically increase the number of entries. However, adding a date range selector similar to the flight duration options should be entirely possible. The update table button simply takes the currently entered filters/parameters and displays all flights that match those parameters. You can then either click and interesting-looking one in the table to get the information, or hit one of the two random buttons at the bottom right to get it to pick for you. The pdf guide/manual has more info if you're interested. I'll take the AI suggestions under consideration; at the moment they might be out of the scope of the application, but maybe in the future if I can think of a clean way to do it. Thanks for trying it out! Just to be abundantly clear, to help other users, this utility has nothing to do with AI traffic whatsoever. Instead, it's a "what route should I fly with my 737" type of program, that gives you real flights from real airlines.
  23. At the moment it's not possible for users to add their own entries into the schedule. My raw data is approximately 350 mb worth of text files, and I have a script that takes around 10 minutes compiling them all into the big .db file that the program uses. I could potentially include that script as part of the program and give instructions on the data format expected and such so that users could make additions, but that's in the future plans and would take a bit of careful thought on how to implement it cleanly. However, there is hopefully more than enough in there currently to keep people happy for the time being. Each current airline has full schedules every two years starting in 2008, data permitting. This is done for balance, to prevent airlines with data from every season from "drowning" out the smaller or sparser ones. In this release, the most recent Emirates schedule is from the summer of 2014. I am updating the schedules and adding new airlines quite frequently, so it will continue to grow as new data becomes available.
