Plan-G / IGC Trail Colour
« on: April 25, 2014, 08:08:33 AM »
Plan-g has the ability to load in more than one IGC Flight trail.

Is there a way to make each IGC flight path a different colour to differentiate between flights on a similar track?
If not can this be an enhancement request for a future Plan-G version.

Plan-G / Re: Rebuiding database - FSX

Thanks Tim the penny dropped when I saw no entries in the Log file. I pointed Plan-G to the wrong scenery.cfg folder.

Plan-G / Rebuiding database - FSX
« on: December 30, 2013, 03:32:07 PM »
I have created a simple Airfield using ADE9X imported it into FSX and is showing up OK including the ICAO code LZRU.

I have rebuilt the Plan-G database to include this new airfiled but it iis not showing. I have never had a problem like this before so I do not know what is going wrong.

I am using W7 and latest Plan-G V3 version.

Plan-G / Re: Unable to set Nav1,Nav2 or ADF frequencies from Radio Stack
« on: October 01, 2012, 03:50:07 PM »
If you are still stuck after reading the manual, then is your aircraft equipped with Nav1, Nav2 & ADF ?
For instance if you are flying a Bush plane without these instruments then I don't think you will be able to set the Plan-G radio stack. Big tin / IFR equipped aircraft should not be a problem.

Only saying this as when I use my A2A Spitfire, the Plan-G radio stack does not work properly because of the lack of radio/Navaids in the Aircraft. If I change this to a default FSX Cessna C-172 then Plan-G Navaids and radio work as intended in the manual.

Hi Tim

Still cannot import KML files, although this time the map does no tgo whizzing off some where else.
Attached is a zip contining the plan-g log and kmz file.

Plan-G / Re: KML/KMZ DOES NOT SHOW

I have had this problem as well. When you mention blue I think you will find that Plan-G places you over one of the oceans (can't remember which one)

I have to use Plan-G v2 for my KML/KMZ's to work.

Yep, appears to have been fixed in v49 for me also  :D

Plan-G / Re: Radio Stack
« on: August 25, 2012, 08:28:06 PM »
I think this has to do with Aircraft type. I changed my A2A Spitfire for the FSX default cessna c172 and the radio stack performs perfectly  :)

I think it is because the Spitfire I use only officially has 1 main radio and no standby and therefore Plan-G just changes the main frequency.

Plan-G / Radio Stack
« on: August 19, 2012, 07:37:15 PM »
I have just used the Radio stack for the first time, great feature as I can now tune in faster in the A2A Spitfire.

A slight bug though, when I click above or below the numbers in the STANDBY frequency, the MAIN frequency numbers change. Although very usuable it needs addressing at the next release so that the correct STANDBY frequency changes.

Attached is the IGC file.

It just occured to me that the IGC was created from the Simlogger program, http://carrier.csi.cam.ac.uk/forsterlewis/soaring/sim/fsx/dev/sim_logger/

I have not tried to reload back in a Plan-G IGC created trace yet as a comparison

Plan-G / IGC - Ground Elevation
« on: August 17, 2012, 06:48:05 PM »
On page 55 of the manual it gives anice IGC against a green Ground elevation profile.

When I imported an IGC file the trace shows fine but no green elevation profile.
My DEM works OK because a plan elevation comes up OK when I hit the Plan Elevation Tab

What am I doing Wrong?

Tim

Here's a link to the files.
http://soaringweb.org/Airspace/EU.html

FYI. These work quite well with an open-source glide computer called XCSoar. I normally use this via a Virtual serial port emulator to connect with FSX FSUIPC GPS out. (Can also be networked using Pete Dowson's FSWideserver on another PC).

Being an open-source program you might be able to see how the code works (Only guessing as I am not a programmer)

Using the Airfiles in XCSoar gives an audible warning if you are about to infringe airspace.

Plan-G / Airpspace files

Is it possible as perhaps a future enhancement to Import .sua airspace files rather than the out of date FSX / FS9 data?
