Flight plan converter, FxmlToFLT, FxmlToFlt.zip
This utility, written and copyrighted by John Nunez in 2014, converts the new format "FXML" flight files into the older format "FLT" for use by unmaintained programs such as RCV4 (Radar Contact version 4). RCV4 provides restart options from saved flights but can only read the old FLT format.

Make Runways utility version 4.91 MakeRwys.zip
-- For P3D3, P3D4 and P3D5 , this version uses a Lorbi-SI's AddonOrganizer derivative called "LorbySceneryExport", (included with MakeRunways) to create a scenery.cfg fil it can use even when the scenery add-ons are distributed according to various XML file. 
Please see the document included in the MakeRunways ZIP!

-- Version 4.835 just adds a new command line option, used by SimStarterNG, for programs which pre-generate the MakeRwys_Scenery.cfg file, so not needing MakeRunways to call upon the Lorby program..
-- Version 4.84 fixes a problem with getting runway threshold offsets. [Note this may still not work with sceneries compiled using the latest P3Dv4 tools]
-- Version 4.85 adds the command line option /Jetway to make the Gares file to include a flag for those gates with a built-in jetway (i.e. one in the AFD BGL).
-- Version 4.86 uses a special version of the program from Lorby-Si to generate the MakeRwys_Scenery.cfg file. This version is included in the ZIP, with kind permission.
-- Version 4.861 improved the reliability of using the Lorby program output.
-- Version 4.863 removes the use of  P3D4AddonOrganiser, depending only on the included exporter instead.
-- Version 4.864 puts more information at the top of the log (Runways.txt), including any error information relating to the use of the Lorby program. The documentation also now reminds you to run MakeRwys "as administrator".
-- Version 4.865 handles Taxiway names of the maximum of 8 characters better (only a Logging change,  i.e. runways.txt)
--  Version 4.871 fixes runway MagVars to match Airport ones when the latter have been updated by a later BGL containing no runways -- eg by FSAerodata or Herve Sors update pacages.
--  Version 4.872 includes a fix for a very obscure bug which causes it to crash after completing all the main files, but whilst assembling the Comms frequency files, f4.csv and f5.csv. It occurs when a scenery folder contains many AFDs re-defininig the same airport data and accumulating those frequencies. For the earlier data duplicates are rooted out early. Comms were dealt with differently, by search a built list for selected frequency types.
-- Version 4.873 recognises the 'transparent' flag (bit 7)  in the runway surface type, and whilst logging it, eliminates it before decoding to a descriptor. So, for example value 128 is treated like 0 which in new style BGLs is 'concrete'.

-- Version 4.880 corrected the incorrect classification of "no draw hold points" as gates. Such hold points have been used more recently in addon scenery in order to get the default ATC to recognize AI ready and waiting when the actual visible hold point, previously used by AI, is too far for the rather dumb default ATC.

-- Version 4.891 provides altitudes accurate to 2 decimal places in the Runways.xml file (only).

-- Version 4.90 can handle the new airport data types for runways, taxiways and gates being used in Prepar3D v5 in order to support sloped runways.

-- Version 4.91 Fixes an omission in version 4.90 for the new P3D5 format airport files: version 4.90 omitted runway threshold offset, approach lights  and VASI information. 

FliteStar plans exporter, FStarRC, version 2.31 FStarRC.zip

-- Signature removed
