  1. Hello all! I have been simming since the very first sim Bruce Artwick's Flight Simulator for the Commodore and Atari. Ever since the newer sims came out with flight planning, ACARs and weather programs, I have noticed generally the databases do not match for airports ICAO. This is more prevalent in out of the way airports I like to fly into in bush country and seaplane base, but also frequently in others. Why is it that sims, weather programs and ACARs can not use the same database? There is a website out there where you can download all the airports in the world and yet it seems they all use their own from somewhere instead (See Open data @ OurAirports"). Apparently, this doesn't bother others as I never see any comments on it in forums. I have a NAVIGRAPH subscription, but it does not help', these databases are still different. Is there anywhere to get this fixed without having to contact each individual vendor? Thanks for reading
  2. FAA website list Point Baker as PFKP and it's localizer ID as KPB. Alaska ICAO Location Finder (faa.gov) Thanks for the replies, most helpful and informative. I have reported it to "GATEWAY BUG REPORT"
  3. Little Navmap list Point Baker, Alaska ICAO as "KKPB", correct ICAO is KPB. Looks like there are variations out there, X-Plane12 as KKPB, but AIRNAV list it as PFKP. Thought you would like to correct this.
  4. I run LNM on a remote computer with X-Plane12. On the remote computer under airport info the Data Sources segment says that the apt.dat files cannot be found, yet I can access them from the remote computer. The local computer has no problem finding them. Is this significant in supplying data to LNM or just icing?
  5. When making approach plan for RW06 in LNM flight plan puts runway as RW6 vice 06 which gets rejected by XP12 and does not load.

  6. vatsimnetwork/vatspy-data-project: A home for VATSPY Data updates. (github.com) This is from the FAA and looks interesting it contains a lot of information/data in zipped text files 28 Day NASR Subscription (faa.gov)
  7. Did that before I posted. I see it load. I am in USA where there are plenty of centers and they are in the Boundaries.geojson
  8. Little late, but same topic. I have downloaded the boundary file at gethub and installed it in a directory. I pointed LNM to it, loaded the airspace, bu I still have circles and no boundaries for centers in VATSIM. What am I doing wrong. Everything I see in the mauuel I believe I have done.
  9. I am running a remote configuration for Little NavMap. With Beta 2.8.0 I cannot load scenery database files as the "Load Scenery Library" is grayed out and has (no simulator) next to it. Also my copied database files for XP11 and 12 with the airac cycle says the same (no simulator) next to them. What's wrong with my setup?
  10. 2.6.14 worked ok for me unless I missed an update. What do I need to edit? Think I figured it out, the FP.
  11. Since the last update I have not been able to load a flight plan into Active Sky X. The error says unable to parse. Generally this happens when an airport is not in ASXP, but not in this case. When I do it manually in ASXP it creates a flight plan ok. Anyone else had this problem?
  12. Is there a way to disable the scroll auto return in the flight plan window. When I scroll over to see VOR freq. the bar returns to the left edge instead of staying in place.
