  1. Hi Axel, another suggestion coming your way 😊 AS16 has this nice feature that, when connected to FSX, it will automatically load/transfer(?) the Flight plan from FSX to itself when opening a FP in FSX. That would be great if LNM could do the same, so when it's connected to FSX, and I load a FP in FSX, it would automatically load in LNM. Just another "weird" idea of me 😏 Cheers, Luc
  2. Me again, so, this morning I did some more experimenting with the different options and i got a little closer to make it more comfortable for me to use. When I first used LNM i tried this double click to zoom in but that never worked properly for me. I always got half of my screen covered with a information window for that airport, but no zoom. After some trial and error, I found out that, if I switch off Airport info at double click, then it would work fine. Also, I resized the information window to a small vertical window and put it at the right edge of the screen. Then I tried again and found out that, more often than not, if I double click on the airport it would just display the airport information in the (already open) information window. The next time I double click on the airport it would actually zoom in. So maybe something can be done about that so both info display and zoom would be executed simultaneously? Anyway, with the double click "zoom in" now under control, it's already a big step closer to the solution, easy way to quickly zoom in during/after landing. Another option that is quite helpful is not to display any airports/navaids/etc during zooming. Zoom reacts a lot quicker now and i don't mind to have the different info displayed after zoom is executed. I tried your suggestion with the option "Center map on aircraft and next flight plan waypoint" but that didn't do anything for me, at least when I'm zoomed out with the whole FP on screen, it would not zoom in to the a/c and waypoint. Maybe when you're zoom in beyond, it would zoom out so you would have both a/c and waypoint on the screen, I didn't try that (forgot). Although I got closer to a solution, id doesn't mean i would say no to autozoom 😉 Cheers, Luc
  3. Hi Alex, those are interesting questions but not so easy to answer. And you're right, it shouldn't get over complicated too. Happy: Use one options value for on ground and one for in air Ideal: Zoom linearly depend on AGL I would say pre-defined so taxiway and gates numbers are readable. If you depend on size and have large airports (EDDF) and you put the whole airport on the screen you probably wouldn't be able to see the taxiway letters or gates, for smaller airports that might work. I would say follow the aircraft, but that might (is) actually achieved by the option to follow (center) the aircraft. (which I use today when taxiing) Well, I guess this might complicate things, but I would say a combination of both. I a FP is loaded in LNM, then yes, center flight plan. If no FP is loaded, Pre-defined zoom in air. Not very clear what you mean but I would say both, follow aircraft and keep the zoom I hope you will figure out a way to achieve some of these functionalities without to many effort. The reason why I think it's interesting to have this is because if (like myself) you use LNM on a networked PC and during take-off or especially landing, you're a little busy operating the a/c so you don't want to go and fiddle on the networked PC to have the right zoom. Furthermore, at least on my networked PC (HP Thin Client 610) the reaction on the zoom is a little slow (loading the map over internet?) so sometimes you zoom in to much or to little as it doesn't react instantly. Actually, at least to me, the most important is during landing, so when I'm on (or close to) the ground I automatically have the airport plate on the screen so I can see how far away I'm from taxiways and then can follow the correct route to my gate. Cheers, Luc
  4. Hi Alex, I just had a look at the changes for release 2 and unfortunately I didn't find the feature I was talking about. But then again, it looks like I didn't express myself clearly. The feature I was talking about is not about centering the map at the airplane. With auto zoom I mean that when I'm on the ground I will be zoomed in so the airport will fill the whole screen (easier to see gates and taxi) But once I take off, I would like Littlenavmap to automatically zoom out so I would have more map surface displayed on the screen. The same when landing, once I am getting closer to the ground I would like LNM automatically to zoom in. I guess in other words, some parameter where I can specify the zoom factor linked to the AGL altitude of the aircraft. Cheers, Luc
  5. Yeah, that's what I did with the 1606 cycle and I downloaded multiple formats but at that time there was no LNM (at least not that I was aware of, I just stumbled on this two weeks ago) And it's not the money that's withholding me to buy another cycle, just the hassle to update all my add-on's again Cheers, Luc
  6. Hi, I just started using Little navmap and I need some help with Navigraph navdata. I have all my add-on's, simbrief and fsx synced to AIRAC1606. I know it's quite old but to me the main thing is that I use the same AIRAC platform wide and I don't want to update all my programs every new cycle, so I stick to this one. I have the AIRAC1606 available in different formats, but not in the Little navmap version. Would it be possible to convert the native navdata (or other format I have) to the required Little navmap usable format? Cheers, Luc
  7. Hi, first of all, what a great soft, really, very impressed! Thanks for sharing with all of us. I didn't see any thread for future request so here I go; Would it be possible to add an auto zoom? What I mean is when taking off or landing then the zoom is automatically adjusted. So when taxiing you will have the taxiways and gate numbers visible, but once in the air it will automatically zoom out (or in) depending the distance your flying from the ground. Especially during landing that would be really helpful so you have a close-up view of the airport your landing at. Just an idea. Cheers, Luc
  8. Yes, me too, I would like to be able to use COM2 instead. I'm using COM1 with VOXATC and automatic (ATC) co-pilot so I can't change freq on COM1 Cheers Luc

    Reload Lua Engine - Hot key

    Thank you for making available the hotkey to reload the Lua Engine. I noticed it's in the new release and It solved my problem. Cheers, Luc

    Reload Lua Engine - Hot key

    Hi, well it's a free add-on made (and not supported anymore) some 10 years ago but I tell you this is really awesome. Basically what it does it will download and render satellite imagery (photo-realistic) in real time while in flight. However it does require quite some fine tuning and trial and error and a reasonable powerful system. As far as I can remember I don't have this problem when not using Tileproxy. As said, there's no support for this anymore and flying without Tileproxy is most certainly not an option (try it, you'll see what I mean LOL) Cheers, Luc OOPS I missed you're PM, will act on it

    Reload Lua Engine - Hot key

    Hi, I'm sure that the problem is not within Linda or the PMDG module. It really happens sporadically, but when it happens, usually during approach :-( then it can be somewhat annoying ;-) . I'm using Tileproxy and other add-ons (weather) while flying and somehow somethings goes wrong with Tileproxy when flying a long time over water. During approach and flying lower Tileproxy has to load a lot of tiles once back over land and there's not much to do about that. And I'm sure you understand the "hassle" it is going out of full view, the sim is paused because I've to go into Linda, putting everything back in it's place etc... So would you ever consider to make available a hot key just to reload the lua engine during flight (without pausing)? Cheers, Luc

    Reload Lua Engine - Hot key

    Hi, Is there a hot key to reload Lua Engine during flight? Why? Because sometimes it happens to me that during flight suddenly my MCP doesn't respond anymore (shows serial nbr ...) The only way to fix that is to reload the lua engine. Problem is that I'm always flying in Full view and with multiple monitors. So After start-up I'll drag my instrument (pmdg 2D, OVH, ..) to my other screens. For me to be able to reload the lua engine I have to go to windowed mode to access the Linda program. Result is that after that I have to re-position all my screens again. I would be grateful if I could just use a key combination to reload lua engine during flight. Cheers, Luc
  13. Hi, coming back to this with some extra information. If you're in the Linda MCP configuration screen and hoover your mouse over switches and buttons they will actually change to yellow with a red border. Just now I noticed that if you're in mode 1 then the CRS, HDG, ... knobs change to yellow/red when hoovering over, but if you're in mode 2 or 3 then when you hoover over them the color doesn't change, hence they always use the function of mode 1. Is there any way to change that so you can also have different functions for CRS, HDG, ... in the other 2 modes? I does work in the EFIS config. Cheers, Luc
  14. Hi ScotFlieger, did you come up with any ideas? Cheers
  15. Hi, I'm considering buying the FS2crew Reboot but I need some pertinent info before I decide 1) Is it possible to have the FO not to flip switches, just guide me in what switches to set? I ask this because I use a hardware OVH and a VRinsight MCP so I don't want my hardware switches to be "out of sync" with the simulator. 2) How well is it compatible with FScaptain? Also there, you have voice communication with FO and FA, will both programs interfere? (or vice versa) 3) How well is it compatible with VOXATC? Here I leave it to my (voxatc) FO to do all communication with ATC and setting comm frequency's. Will that interfere with FS2crew (or vice versa) I mainly want to use the FS2crew FO to guide me through checklists and procedure, but would like to do the bulk of the operating myself, except for those things done by VOXATC FO (comm) or FScaptain. Thanks for your advice, Luc Jonckheere
