  1. News Item: fsaAerodata is the first product for the flight simulation, which updates the aeronautical navigation database on a monthly basis, based on real world conditions. Additional to Navaids, fsAerodata updates all approaches, departures (SIDs) and arrival procedure s(STARs) worldwide to real world conditions. Traffic Control and AI traffic will benefit using real approaches. Data is updated on every AIRAC cycle; every 28 days, a new set of fsAerodata is ready for download and installation on your flight simulator. fsAerodata can be purchased including a subscription service of 3-month or 1-year. Additionally, you’ll need an active subscription to Navigraph, which is the provider of the source data to fsAerodata. Features: -· Worldwide update of flight simulator navigation database including following elements: -· Navaids: VORs, DME, NDB, TACAN, Enroute and terminal Waypoints, (update identification IDs, frequency, coordinates, magnetic variation). -· ILS stations: only frequency is updated; no other data is updated, to assure compatibility with default runways. -· Obsolete Navaids are removed or disabled. -· Runway designators updated. -· Instrument Approaches, including SIDs and STARs procedures -· Airways Routes, including High and Low altitude airways. -· Access to SIDs & STARs procedures on default GPS navigation unit (on Prepar3D) -· Traffic Control: Simulation and tracking of real approaches using the updated database. If an ILS light plan is entered, traffic control will use the updated approaches installed; on the ATC menu, user can select alternative approaches. Requirements: FSX, FSX-SE, Prepar3D v1 to v3. Administrative rights may be required, depending where the flight simulator is installed on PC. A subscription with Navigraph FMS service is required to access and download the AIRAC cycles. License terms: fsAerodata is licensed for leisure, hobbyist and personal training use. Product is not licensed for professional training or commercial purposes. Visit the fsaAerodata Homepage for further information.
  2. ILS frequencies and other minor data can be included indeed. i see all this navigation stuff more like a framework or additional layer on the flightsim environment; having it updated, could serve developers to work on optimizations of areas like ATC, flight planning, flight maps, AI, GPS or FMS units, that due to the obsolescence of the original navigation data, was not worth the effort. Let's see how it develops When compiling the approaches to P3D, the only issue I had with the compiler was with the formatting of RF legs, which actually are not hard-coded in the simulator. I have to check how many airports were affected. Probably they can be adapted somehow so can be "simulated" by flightsim.
  3. Hello all, I'm not a regular poster at AVSIM, tough I'm a usual follower of the main topics around flightsim here, I have finished a method and software, to update on a regular basis the worldwide navigation data from Prepar3D (and also FSX), which overcomes the issue reported by many users that the flighsim is pretty much outdated nowadays. It took some time to develop and now is in the latest steps of testing and product development. So far, the method is feasible and running pretty well and I think now is possible to commercialize it. Nevertheless, I would like to discuss from the technical point of view, comments from other users about ideas / compatibility issues that may arise, especially since this a is complex topic because of all the technical hurdles to overcome. About the product; basically, the solution process the Navigraph source data, and converts in an automatic way the data to a format compatible with P3D/FSX. The idea is that this is done at developer before an AIRAC is release, and delivery to the users at each monthly release date. The navigation data that has been tested so far is: Airways, Enroute VORs, NDBs, Waypoints, terminal Navaids, Magnetic variation, TACANs, Navaid frequencies, IAPS, SIDs, STARs. ILSs are not included yet. Besides, an interesting outcome that came from the development is the fact that it is compatible and works with the feature provided by LM on their GPS units since several time but could not be tested so far, where SIDs and STARs can be loaded and followed. To the administrators: let me know if this is the right forum, or it has to be moved elsewhere. I have set a showcase page where there is more info about the solution and product. Again, don't know if this can be publish here; if not remove the link, please. http://www.fsaerodata.com Cheers,
  4. I tested with iz3d but doesn't work (black screen). Reverted to FSX.
  5. Hi,Mine is working with SoftTH and 2 monitors (1920x1080) under Win7 64bits.

  6. Hi,I took another approach: I'm using SoftTH solution instead; It's a freeware software and though it has some limitations, works with my 8800GT card, Win7 and FSX with 2 monitors configuration. The outcome is impressive, with an experience that is as close to reality as possible, when compared with my previous setup using one monitor.Cheers,Sausalito
