  1. Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) Please reload the scenery database to fix problems with incomplete airways. Changes from Release 1.8.4 to 1.8.5 Fixed errors when compiling the X-Plane CIFP files that appear since AIRAC 1801. Updated included Navigraph database correcting airways. Fixes for missing airway segments in scenery library compiler for all formats (FSX, P3D, X-Plane and DFD).
  2. Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) Online Manual Notes This release fixes several errors and adds two new export functions for the Reality XP GNS 530W/430W V2 and GTN 750/650 Touch. The changelog below contains links to the relevant parts of the manual if applicable. The program will automatically show a question dialog and then copy and prepare the included Navigraph database on first start if the included cycle 1707 is still used. The included database received minor updates. For Linux users: The startup shell scripts have been deleted since they are not needed anymore. The program can be started directly from any folder. ►► Please reload the scenery databases to avoid problems with saved flight plans. ◄◄ Included Progams Little Xpconnect was updated to 1.0.6. See included CHANGELOG.txt for a list of changes. Little Navconnect was updated to 1.8.3. See included CHANGELOG.txt. Changes from Release 1.8.3 to 1.8.4 Added flight plan export for Reality XP GTN and GNS units in the Export Flight Plan to other Formats menu. See here in the manual: FPL (Reality XP Garmin GNS), GFP (Reality XP Garmin GTN) and Export Sub-Menu. Added option to save Garmin flight plans with user defined waypoints to avoid locked waypoints on AIRAC cycle mismatch. See dialog "Options" on tab "Flight Plan" and here in the online manual: Notes about the Garmin Formats GFP and FPL. Added X-Plane 3D airport attribute in the airport search window in the dropdown list All Ratings. Also shown in airport facilities list in tooltips and information window. Now displaying runway names for SIDs and STARs with reference to multiple parallel or all runways in procedure search. Partial solution for issue #179. Needs scenery database reload. macOS compatibility changed since program crashes on 10.9 and below. Now at least version 10.10 is needed. Program now refuses to run on Mavericks or older and shows an error dialog. This had to be done due to requirements in used programming libraries. Added setting in dialog Options on tab Map to disable tooltips for selected map features: airports, navaids or airspaces. Changed route description text field to mono-spaced font and changed wrapping for better readability. Added warning dialog when AIRAC cycle is not available when saving flight plans in X-Plane FMS 11 format. Helipads can now be selected as a start position from the map context menu. Small adjustment to taxiway labels to show more often. Added display for airport regions where available. Updated French translation, French manual and legend. Updated database to allow future fixes of issue #179. Database minor version changed to 8 to indicate updated schema. Reloading the scenery databases is recommended. Fixed Errors Fixed Majestic Dash FPR flight plan export on Windows. Departure runway is now correctly assigned according to SID runway when loading from formats which do not support departure parking (e.g. FMS or FPL). Made flight plan format detection more tolerant for X-Plane FMS 11 files with missing cycle information. Fixed issues where X-Plane cannot load STAR in FMS 11 flight plans because runway reference is missing. Now using correct AIRAC cycle from nav database when writing X-Plane FMS 11 files. Used simulator database version previously which could result in X-Plane warnings and unusable flight plans. Fixed issue where helipad was not loaded correctly from FSX PLN files in certain cases. Fixed Linux build to avoid problems with shared libraries on some platforms for all programs. Removed unneeded startup scripts for Linux. Program executable can now be started directly from any folder without setting library path. Fixed problem where French translation was loaded if OS has French as second or third language. Solved problem where translation files were loaded mixed in some cases. Fixed problem with initial wrong folder selection if default does not exist when saving or exporting flight plans. Fixed No Simulator found ... warning dialog for Linux and macOS which should show up only on Windows first startup. Made program more tolerant for older database files and improved compatibility. Number of approach lighting systems is now correctly assigned to airports in loaded X-Plane scenery data. This issue resulted in many airports having an ALS indication where none is. See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions.
  3. Direct download: Windows - macOS - Linux (64 bit) Online Manual Notes This release adds support for Navigraph updates and includes a full AIRAC cycle 1707 including procedures, airspaces, navaids and more. Note that Navigraph updates will only be available as of December 7th with the next cycle 1713. Furthermore, new flight plan export formats like the Majestic Dash and the new X-Plane 11 FMS format were added. Changes from Release 1.6.7 to 1.8.3 Little Xpconnect was updated to 1.0.5. Minor changes only. Little Navconnect was updated to 1.8.2. Minor changes and bug fixes only. The program will automatically prepare the included Navigraph database on first start. Reloading the scenery databases is recommended. Improvements Navigraph Added Navigraph database cycle 1707 to program download archive. Database is prepared and used automatically on startup. See the Navigation Databases chapter in the manual for more information. Added sub-menu for Navigraph database in menu Scenery Library with three display options. Program can now display mixed data (e.g. FSX/N in titlebar) on map and in information window: Complete airports and ILS from simulator data. Navaids, airways, airspaces and procedures from third party navdata like Navigraph. Changed main window title bar to indicate usage of navdata (e.g. Navigraph): FSX/N: simulator and navdata, (FSX)/N: navdata only and FSX: simulator only. See Window Title in the online manual. Additonal third party database is now opened from application directory first and can be overloaded in settings database directory by a newer one. Programm checks database internal compilation time before copying and creates database indexes on demand. Database is copied and prepared on first startup. Flight Plan Export Enabled saving of the new X-Plane 11 FMS file format and added warning before saving since the format is not usable by X-Plane 11.05. FMS 11 is now the default format when saving FMS although it needs at least a 11.10 beta version. FMS 3 can still be saved using the export option. See in the manual: FMS 11 and FMS 3. Added flight plan export for Majestic Dash. Currently limited to waypoints. See in the manual: FPR. Added export for IXEG 737 flight plan format. See in the manual: FPL. Flight plan export to Flight Factor Airbus added. See in the manual: corte.in Format. Translation Updated English manual and French program translation. Added translated offline manual PDF by Patrick. Not yet available online. Added French legend and updates to translation. Options Added settings in option dialog on tab User Interface to force user interface language and locale (number format, date format and more) in program to English. Added options to disable restoring the last search parameters, information window content and aircraft trail on startup in options dialog on tab Startup. Other Updated Linux startup script so that it can be used also by the desktop launcher (thanks to Valerio for the tip). Now adding all readme and changelog files to macOS deployment. Added command line option -s or --settings-directory that allows to change the ABarthel part of the settings directory for testing purposes like running more than one version of Little Navmap. Fixed display of navaids in information dock window on procedure tab and removed SIDs and STARs since this information was not useful. Added cycle information to X-Plane menu item in scenery library menu showing AIRAC cycle of loaded X-Plane database. Scenery library menu item is now disabled instead of being hidden if only one simulator is installed. Adapted airspace and COM display to new types. Added caution airspace. Information dock window on tab Runways/Helipads can now display more than one ILS for a runway end (EDDF 25R/07L in X-Plane). Fixed Errors Fixed error where ARINC name of procedures was not loaded causing problems when exporting and loading flight plans. Fixed problem in ATS route string parser where an airway as an invalid first entry did not generate a warning message. Fixed error in route string parser which did not recognize STARs correctly. Fixed error where first enroute waypoint contained an airway reference after calculating with SID in some cases. This caused problems when exporting some flight plan formats and in the route string parser. Fixed several display issues with large airspaces and airways crossing the anti meridian. These showed up mirrored with their tooltips in other parts of the world. Small problems remain (e.g. Melbourne FIR). FSX/P3D: Added workaround for scenery sort order with add-on.xml files missing layer id. Now forcing navaid updates of fsAerodata to highest priority. Fixed error where an automatic connect was attempted even when hostname is empty. Fixed problem with almost invisible checkbox, radiobutton and toolbar-button state in night mode. Fixed error with wrong ILS pitch in X-Plane compiler. Value was rounded to integer value. Better handling of X-Plane OpenAirspace comments. Fixed crashes and freezes with invalid or incomplete procedures. Drawing code is now more robust for invalid procedure legs as they appear in some add-on scenery. Fixed problem where invalid procedure legs were not recognized (course/heading to DME distance or VOR radial). Fixed problem where no scenery database was selected on first startup causing crashes when loading a flight plan. Fixed handling of missing or inaccessible legend file. Now silently ignores error and redirects to web page if unavailable. Fixed error in scenery library menu where a menu item could be deselected resulting in no selection at all. See the included CHANGELOG.txt or here online for a complete list across all versions.

  14. Hi everybody, Just had a look at Captain Sim's Calendar of Updates (not really expecting anything exciting) to see if there was any news about B-727, my all-time FSX favourit - and almost fell out of my chair when I saw that the sooo long awaited update for B-727 is announced for an August release. It's SP 2.5, no details. Regards Bo
  15. How long time is "very soon?". It's been what.. 9 months now and no actual "lids" are opened to me atleast, only official threads, but you won't answer any real questions because the "lid" ain't open yet. Not moaning, i'm patient and i rather want to wait, then get the real deal flight simulator instead of hasting it, but just asking, i'm curious what you Dovetail guys think of "very soon", years? months? Maybe even weeks from now? Have a nice day :wink: Best regards: Tor Jakobsen Ps: I bet i get the answer "very very soon".. haha.
