  1. Hi Pete, I hope you are doing well. Would be great if you could integrate watered runways (how are they called by the way) to the runways.xml file. Look like they are missing at the moment: <ICAO id="0Z3"> <ICAOName>Shannons Pond</ICAOName> <Country>United States</Country> <State>Alaska</State> <City>Dillingham</City> <File>Scenery\0001\scenery\APX05110.bgl</File> <SceneryName>0001 Basis</SceneryName> <Longitude>-158.577194</Longitude> <Latitude>59.058975</Latitude> <Altitude>80</Altitude> <MagVar>20.000</MagVar> </ICAO> I am using version Any ideas?
  2. Thanks a lot. Can you please contact me via email at capt_pero@web.de? Regards, Peter
  3. WOW! That would be great. Simply run it without any dialogs would be helpful from my point of view.
  4. Hi Pete, I am the developer of SIMstarter http://aviation.pero-online.de/SIMstarter (you might know it). I use MakeRwys to select the starting position of a flight in front of the simulator start. For that reason I would like to have something like a quite mode. Just to ensure that the user does not click "Cancel" within the creation process and does not need to click "Ok" once it's done. Are there any command line arguments available?
  5. Problem with G5.csv

    Thanks a lot.
  6. Problem with G5.csv

    And that is exactly my problem. ;O)
  7. Problem with G5.csv

    I am just wondering, why the values at G5.csv (LAT and LON) of an parking or gate are different comparing to runways.txt As I wrote I would like to use it to place aircrafts to the correct parking position. Using G5.csv would be much easier. ;O)
  8. Problem with G5.csv

    Sorry for the late reply. ;O) I was on a business trip and forget to answer. SIMstarter is using that values to place the aircraft. Therefore it is quite important for me to get precise values. Could you please explain your calculation again? I am using: Starting: N48:21:30.6333 Seconds --------- + Minutes 60 Dezimalgrad = --------------------- + Grad 60 30,6333 --------- + 21 60 48,35850925 = --------------------- + 48 60 Thanks a lot! Seems for me, that there is a calulation mistake in G5.csv instead of runways.txt.
  9. Hi Pete, my name is peter and I am the author of SIMstarter a program to start your simulator with different profiles. I would like to implement a feature to select the starting position based on MakeRwys data. So far no problem. But I found out, that the data at G5.csv is not that precise that I would need. Example: EDDM (Munich, Gate 202) in runways.txt in file: Scenery\0601\scenery\APX51140.bgl Gate 202 [#G106]: N48:21:30.6333 E011:47:32.9532 Type 8 (Small Gate), Size 18.0m, Hdg 263.1T and in file: aerosoft\Afd\scenery\AF2_EDDM.BGL Gate 202 [#G106]: N48:21:30.6333 E011:47:32.9532 Type 8 (Small Gate), Size 18.0m, Hdg 263.1T Airlines: DLH CFG So far so good, both identical, because I installed Mega Airport Munich as well (just for clairification)... If we have a look into G5.csv searching for EDDM and Gate 202 we will find EDDM,,202,48.358513,11.792487,18.0,263.1,8,DLH,CFG But is that the right calculation? Because whenever I am using this value for latitude and longditue the plane will be slightly misplaced. N48:21:30.6333 should become 48.358509 not 48.358513 E011:47:32.9532 has been recalculated well to 11.792487 another example: EDDN (Nurnberg) N49:29:42.7500 E011:04:43.3772 should become 49.495208 11.078716 NOT 49.495167 11.078444 Is it a calculation problem or do I misunderstand these values?
