STB JUMPING TO OTHER AIRPORTS

Recommended Posts

I've had an odd thing happening today. I'm at EGLL on STB and FSX and it suddenly jumps to EGTN. This happens when the time clock on STB moves on to the next minute. This has started to happen since I changed the minimum number of aircraft movements for STB to go to that airport to zero. I can go to any airport on that local list (Gatwick etc) and it always jumps to EGTN with the minute change. Any offers?

Can you tell me where EGTN came from?

There is a bug in STB concerning airports that come from "add-ons", either payware of freeware. If the airport is not exported from FSX and imported into STB, STB does not have have coordinates to make distance calculations and always thinks the airport is 0 nm away from you. This faulty calculation then causes the selected airport to switch.

Two options:

1) Export the airport, and import to STB. See "Adding New Airports", page 58 of the V2.1 user guide.

2) Participate in the STB V2.2 beta, where I have fixed the bug if you don't do step 1). PM me if that is of interest!

Regards

Simon
