Missing Approaches
« on: November 20, 2017, 07:46:13 PM »
Hi all

I'm a new user of Plan G with P3Dv4 and having a problem with missing approaches - for example, EGLL should obviously have a whole bunch of them but all I see is a single GPS approach for 9L ... this is similar for a bunch of other airports which I know have various approaches but just show a single GPS approach (and always GPS).

I know that the approach data is properly available in the P3D nav database (as I can see them through the in-sim GPS panel) - I have also used FSAerodata to update the P3D database.

Any ideas gratefully received!

Thanks

Maybe there's a problem reading the FSAeronav data (which overrides the P3D defaults). If you could attach a log that includes the database build process, I can take a look.

Hi Tim

I've done a couple of uninstall/reinstalls of FSAeroData and Plan-G but no further luck.

Have attached two log files from my lastest attempt:

1. "DB Build on Standard P3d Data.txt": this was the log after building the Plan-G DB from P3Dv4 with no FSAeroData installed ... checked out the approaches in the default GPS in P3D and all seemed fine plus Plan-G seemed to show similar approaches (definitely more than a single GPS approach that I was getting before.

2. "DB Build after FSAeroData Install.txt": log after a new Plan-G install and DB build this time with FSAeroData installed ... back to the previous situation of many airports just showing a single GPS approach in Plan G while many more showing through default GPS in P3D.

Interestingly its not happening for absolutely all airports in Plan-G (almost all though!) ... a few have ILS/RNAV/LOC approaches but there also seems to be a lot of duplication of approaches where airports are showing more than one.

Frustrated and hoping you can advise!

Thanks

Adam

Hi Tim

I've still not solved this.

If it helps I've also noticed that, when Plan-G is building the DB it does not seem to finish 'Building Instrument Approaches 1' ... get to about 30% and then skips on to 'Building Instrument Approaches 2'.

Thanks
